SO EASY - LIVE YOUNG PREMIERE
"Live Young" describes the immature ways of a man with virtually no responsibility. A man that So Easy feels he once was and that he may have become permanently had he not the responsibility he does to keep him accountable. So Easy created this song to depict what his life would be like presently had he stayed that man.
The song gives a very valuable lesson in the midst of its easily mistakable glorification of living carelessly. The track puts its listener in the mindset of Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools". For those of you that have never heard or maybe don't remember the message behind Kendrick's "Swimming Pools" the song was about his experience drinking around veteran drinkers. The point is "Swimming Pools" was perceived as a "turn up" and drink type of song but it had a much deeper message to it. "Live Young" gives a "turn up" feel as well but has a much deeper message just as "Swimming Pools" did. Needless to say "Live Young" is the type of song that happens when a lyricist introduces personal experience to a commercial instrumental.
