Finding yourself in a place where you’re lost and trying to navigate a path that works for you isn’t always the easiest thing to do. But when you finally fine tune exactly what you want to do and push to do it, you learn that the journey from then on gets a lot more smoother. And Rhyan LaMarr will be the first to tell you that pushing for your gifts are worth it!
Artist, producer, director, screenwriter and more, Rhyan teamed up with actor/artist, Don Benjamin, singer, Jack Red and producer, Mod G to release the 2020 anthem that we all need… “I Ain’t Going Back.” This track is uplifting, honest and inspiring on different levels. “I Ain’t Going Back” is the perfect reminder that no matter what is in front of you, you don’t have to turn around and go back. Fight through and know that God is fighting right along with you! And when you get past whatever is in front of you, you’ll see how much strength you had inside to begin with. Don’t hold yourself back!
Listen to “I Ain’t Going Back” HERE and watch the video for “I Ain’t Going Back”! And when you’re done, check out what Rhyan had to say about the track, the meaning behind it and more below.
RESPECT.: Tell us about the meaning behind the song.
Rhyan: I was lost and looking for love everywhere but the church. I thought I was mad at God but I was really more disappointed in myself for allowing my vices to get the best of me. God became my punching bag for many seasons. But when I came out the fire and really sought after God, he broke me in ways I never thought I could be touched. I learned to love myself and find joy again. Once I mastered transparency and fell back in love with the word I gravitated towards proverbs 18:22. “He who finds a wife, finds a good thing.” I had always heard this scripture in passing but it never really hit home until I started to seek the Lord. This song is about my journey to becoming a real man of God.
RESPECT.: Tell us about the “I Ain’t Going Back” video.
Rhyan: I wanted to do something fresh and meaningful to shake up the normalcy I was seeing on the scene. I’m an artist at the end of the day which means I make music and films and try to help raise the bar not only in positive entertainment but as an artist overall. I wanted to create visuals for the song that showcased a group of positive gentlemen graduating towards greatness and love. With everything going on in the world currently I just pray we can add some relief and escape to a world that is hurting.
RESPECT.: What are you currently working on?
Rhyan: Currently I am finishing up my current freshman album entitled, aPERFECTmess: Volume 1 slated to drop late Spring.
I’m also in preproduction on my next film that I will be directing entitled, North of The 10 staring Don Benjamin, LaRoyce Hawkins, Destorm Power and Chris Witowske.
I’m overseeing a couple music projects that I’m really excited about.
RESPECT.: A few words for listeners…
Rhyan: At the end of the day God gave us gifts for a reason. For a long time I sat on all of them. Life is too short to not allow your gifts to work together towards an overall goal. Just trying my best to both inspire and push the envelope in the creative field.
