TCvsChanze drops Novacaine Video #NSPM

Early in 2020 I was introduced to a female rapper from North Carolina. Little did I know how much of an impact we both would have on each other.


I remember one of the first times we spoke she called her manager and mentioned she had just linked up with me. He already knew who I was from Country Rap News and it blew my mind. Knowing a whole different genre was watching us made me work harder to move differently. Things are about to pay off.



TCvsChanze comes from a family of musicians and has been making waves throughout the East Coast. Not only has she managed to maintain growth in her rap career, she is also a teacher to 7th graders. TC is one of the most dedicated females I've had the pleasure to learn from. She not only has facilitated her own career, she has tried to help others she believes in come up too. She is a part of Urban Sound and has recently added a dancer to her team as they expand.



We had a deep conversation before today's release of her song Novacaine. Today's world is crazy. She has sat back and watched how it has affected her students as well as millions of Americans around the world. Mental Health is more talked about today than in previous years and that's so important.


In 2019, TC was in college. A professor made her feel like she was less than others. After a suicide attempt, which she is now grateful was unsuccessful, she is here to never back down. She wants to let others know, they are not alone. As today marks National Suicide prevention day, September 10th, her newly released song is a pick-me-up for others who have felt the same way.


In Novacaine, TCvsChanze is reflecting and talking about her struggle with anxiety and depression. She talks about how It plays a role in her life and how It impacts her views on herself and her relationships with people. Shot by Kiana Kettenring and Nu’deezyne .

Lyrics

I lie awake just to keep my mind

From dangerous thoughts

Gods the reason that

I havent even giving up

I'm falling apart

But I always end up acting tuff

Been so many times that

I feel the demons creeping up

Stay in my lane cause I know

They will never understand

Broken hearted they said

I'll never make It man

Not even talking about music

But in truth yeah I'm really scared

Tryin to live my life

Just be hardest part


Cry so much that my minds in a daze

Lost in my thoughts

That my heart starts to fade

Been in the dark

And things got to change

Feeling so numb

That I'm going insane

And I know I keep running around

And keep telling myself all these lies

Got to turn It around or

I'll end up losing my life


How you think I felt when you said My life wasn't worth it

A creep a freak yo

My life was just another burden

why do they see me

And act like I am nothing more

Well can you see my heart is pouring On this wooden floor

Sleep deprived yeah

I keep myself forever working

Ignore all my feeling

Maybe it's time for soul searching

Writing music yeah

I shoot myself up like novacaine

I'll do any thing just to try

And ease the pain

Invest in people who will never ever See my worth

What's messed up they the reason That a getting worse

Well only time will tell

Will I live in peace or go to hell

It always feels like

I'm locked up in this here prison cell

Tried to be everyone savior

To my own demise

Well who gonna wipe my tears

Every-time I start to cry

Stand tall cuz I always have to

Protect my pride

But every every day

It just feels like I died inside


Cry so much that my minds in a daze

Lost in my thoughts

That my heart starts to fade

Been in the dark

And things got to change

Feeling so numb

That I'm going insane

And I know I keep running around

And keep telling myself all these lies

Got to turn it around or

I'll end up losing my life


Cry so much that my minds in a daze

Lost in my thoughts

That my heart starts to fade

Been in the dark

And things got to change

Feeling so numb

That I'm going insane

And I know I keep running around

And keep telling myself all these lies

Got to turn it around or

I'll end up losing my life



Since it is National Suicide Prevention Day, it seemed well fitted to drop this emotional and uplifting song that many individuals can relate to. I give mad props to TC for standing up and speaking out. She is using her life lessons in the form of art to reach those who need it most.


Life can get hard sometimes but there are many people who have been in the same situations and made it out. Reach out and give yourself a voice. #yadig
