Where was I before this? Life without a chorus /
Bars, bars, bars, when it rains it pours with /
Bad decisions, I needed a new direction /
From facilities of correction to this, my resurrection /
A decade-plus of hip hop life compressed into four bars. Those who follow Dubai's independent music scene would attest to the veracity of these lyrics — and the tenacity of the mouth from which they emanated.

Baller and rapper Aaron Leung aka P.Storm slings these lines as a testament to where he is in his journey both as a member of the 3-piece rap savants 'The Recipe' and a solo performer. Either way, he serves a silver platter of hard-core verses that resonates through one's sonic taste buds leaving a sense of rap gluttony. In two parts, we got it covered.

PART 1: Bounce That Track

Intro

My music journey began as a kid being obsessed with hip hop. I just loved everything about it and gradually started to want to be apart of it. I dabbled a bit in all the elements of hip hop until I found something I really enjoyed which was rapping and from there it just carried on and things started to happen.

Verse

This current crisis is crazy man, just seeing it all happen and thinking that we never, ever thought something like this could happen in a million years. Like it’s movie sh**... we’ve all been through and seen different things, recessions, wars, natural disasters, etc but a global pandemic? Nah... people losing their lives, livelihoods, jobs, etc yeh it’s been tough.

This crisis is crazy!

In terms of affecting the music scene? I think it’s really hurt the djs and live performers the most. Also, the events people that put together events. People that make a living off playing live every day. It’s been tough for them! I’m still seeing a lot of music come out and people getting super creative in these times so that’s a good thing but yeah financially it’s hurt a lot of people.

Chorus

I don’t really have a core message for my music. Music has always kind of been therapeutic for me. A chance to get stuff off my mind and share my opinions on certain things.

Outro

Man, I’d like to work with everyone...but off the top of my head, I’d say, Kendrick, Travis Scott, Nas & Jay. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory why haha

PART 2: Bounce To The Rack

Intro

Basketball and hip hop have always been connected. It’s just something that goes hand in hand together. It’s two different cultures but they somehow manage to intersect.

Verse

Nah, basketball, for me, allows me to get away from everything. When I’m on the court everything else doesn’t matter. Whatever I’m going through or dealing with doesn’t even cross my mind. But still, I don’t turn to basketball to escape things, basketball is a part of my daily life and it has been since I was 8 years old.

Just stay on the grind

Chorus

Hmm, I’m not really going to comment on who did it justice because that’s open for interpretation [laughs]. Shaq went platinum, right? I remember Allen Iverson being decent but he had his album banned by the NBA. I guess Dame Lillard is super active now with albums out and so on. Chris Webber used to make beats and he had some good placements on some good albums I think.

Outro

My advice to young rappers? Just stay on the grind. As you go through this journey, you will learn. Right now you’ve got a million door to open in front of you, the more doors you open the more chances you have of finding the right answers.ender
