In the words of Daniel Najar: “I wrote this song ‘Hate’ when I was thinking about all the hate we have in the world today. From all the negativity online and off it there seems to be a lot of anger and rage going on in our society. It can feel at times no matter what a person does or accomplishes it will be followed by some Hate.”
About Daniel Najar:
My name is Daniel Najar and Hip-Hop has been my number one interest in life since I was a young kid. My family were Jehovah Witnesses and on the weekends we had to go door to door preaching the religion. One day a lady let us into her house and she was explaining to the older guy I was with that her song was rebellious and listed to “Rap Music”. Her son shortly came out of his room and I could hear The Real Slim Shady by Eminem in the background. The next week I went down stairs and my sister had MTV on the TV and I got to watch The Real Slim Shady music video and was deeply intrigued by this blond character in what was a mental institution doing all sort of theatrics while rapping at a high level. After that I got The Marshall Mathers LP through a catalog and have been hooked on the genre ever since. I’ve listened to most artists discography bottom to top and am a fan of mostly every artist for taking the time to share their story/perspective through music. I ended up having a very crazy life of my own and at the age of 24 I began to take rapping seriously and pursue a career in music. I feel that I can add some value into Hip-Hop and constantly challenge myself rapping and look forward to sharing my life story with the world one day.

Although I don’t understand Italian or French, I understand a unique party vibe when I hear one, and Marans’ “FYGA” is just that. A superimposition of melodic-percussive digital steelpan attacks, chordal piano stabs and occasional orchestral synth hits, mixed with enveloping trumpet licks, weaving tropical a feel upon a four-to-the-floor, full-bodied kick made to shake subwoofers, chests and bootys as it drives the pace throughout the song.
However, all that pulsating and enveloping soundscape serves as an accompaniment to the elegant, soothing and manly voice of Marans, who with a deep-yet-RnB-esque quality, flows and weaves through the musical elements with a blanket that beds the listeners ears and heart.
Starting off in Italian and switching to French, Marans lays out lyrics about a girl he met in Milan, and tells the story of a trip he would have liked to have taken with her. The emotion of opening to the opposite sex with a desire for connection is felt throughout, and the track lives both on the level of partying and dancing, as well as on the level of listening and contemplating. Of course, Italian and French listeners would get the added advantage of the story itself, but even without the language, the musicality lives and breathes from the ears straight to the heart.
