“Stand Tall” is the lead single from CHH vet Proverb Newsome’s forthcoming The Gaze EP. The single features production by Juice 20/20.
When defined, the word “proverb” means “a wise saying.” Well, when applied to one of Bomb Beach’s most profound wordsmiths, the word takes on no less than the personification of its definition. Proverb Newsome has been dropping gems in ears since the early 90s. He first hit the national scene with his group 1Way in 1995 with the project Destination Unknown. Proverb’s solo project debut was A Common Mans Opus. This collection of songs spoke directly from the heart of the artist; what he believes, why he believes it.
Now, Proverb is getting set to release his sophomore solo effort, The Gaze EP. This project features a more mature experienced emcee as well as more features than the last project.
The message of the song is crystal clear: “we gone stand, we gone stand man no matter what. The right hand of the Lamb got us holdin up. We stand tall on His word cause His words enough.” Jon James and Godsonn are B.I.C., and they too are from Bomb Beach.
