“I wanted to capture the essence of what it was like to travel around the country with a bunch of inner city guys living out our dreams,” Kota shared when asked to describe the track.
Specifically, the song shouts out the friends Kota recently toured with on the Flowers for My Friends Tour: including Inland Empire artist Price, childhood friend & Tour Manager Marcus Santiago, and newly appointed FLTBYS Brand Manager TyGerr Farmer. The track, as always, highlights Kota's lyrical prowess, coupled with EXILE's masterful production.
“YUMA” tells the story of a wandering nomad that never settled. In a state of reflection, Kota questions the value of sacrifice without reward, acknowledging the growing pains that come along with chasing your dreams.
Stay tuned for more updates, releases, and live performances as Kota continues to reshape the independent landscape.
