Brooklyn’s own Saga returns with another ill loosie, “What You Want,” that finds the gifted lyricist teaming with Los Angeles producer, Exile and kicking some serious knowledge.
While previous cut, “If We” was more of a straight-up banger and technical display, “What You Want” dives into the concept of finding joy in the trials of life rather than searching for some grand end result. This is actually referenced in the track’s artwork, which depicts a teary-eyed Wile E. Coyote (known, of course, for his never-ceasing attempts to catch the Road Runner). There’s a great breakdown of the lesson to be learned by Wile’s chase on Quora, but it can be summed up as “the value is in the voyage, not the destination.”
Saga himself drives the concept home in his second verse, wherein he poignantly tears into people who would rather complain and “blame it on the system” than actually do anything to make their lives better. In his words, “they’re just peasants pretendin’ they wearin’ a crown.”
“What You Want” is available for streaming and purchase through iTunes and all major digital retailers. As for Saga’s next move, his European fans can catch him on tour in late March and April opening for Asher Roth.
