The songs are melodious and a balance between rapping and singing. There is story-telling with innovation but completely sticking to music and in tune. There is something for everyone in this album. There is also a warmth and a sense of deeper meaning in his songs.
The lyrics of the song ‘Money’ go as follows:
“Success ain’t ’bout the fame and how much jewels you rock. Success is when I can tell my momma to quit her job.”
This album’s success has placed Amine in the mainstream and highlighted this young artist’s potential and talent. In the latest interview, Amine had candidly said:
“It’s a dog-eat-dog world when it comes to music and how people perceive it. If you don’t believe in yourself, I don’t think people will believe in you.”
Aminé’s anti-Trump stand
Aminé is an open critic of Donald Trump. He is against Trump’s anti-immigration policy. Talking about it, Amine has said:
“My parents are immigrants to this country, they came to this country for a better opportunity just like everyone else.”
In November 2016, Amine had come on the ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’. On this show, Amine gave a bold message to Donald Trump. After he had rapped the ‘Caroline’ single, the camera zoomed in on his face. Then with the changing light colors behind, Amine presented his anti-Trump verse. It read:
“9/11, a day that we never forgettin’
11/9, a day that we always regrettin’
If my President is Trump then it’s relevant enough
To talk ’bout it on TV and not give a fuck
I’m black and I’m proud
My skin is brown and I’m loud
Everybody love it when a rapper tells some lies
But that ain’t me, homie, I guess that’s a surprise
America want to act all happy and holy
But deep down inside they like Brad and Jolie
Caroline divine, and I won’t get specific
Club Banana, the illest and it’s too terrific
You can never make America great again
All you ever did was make this country hate again.”
