Song of the Day: I Don’t Play That – Lex Leosis

When LEX LEOSIS witnessed a guy abusing a woman, it resonated with her. As a result, she penned the experience which serves as an self-empowerment anthem for anyone, particularly women, to take back control after suffering at the hands of their abuser.

Over an airy/trap beat, ‘I Don’t Play That’, also includes anyone who have witnessed the abuse and were deeply affected by the experience and urges them to overcome the trauma. This track is reminder that both affected parties – the victims and the witnesses –  are survivors and are stronger from the incident. Most importantly, the track encourages both parties to stand up to future abusers.
