Konata Small of Rhema Soul has a new single, "Numbers", to share ahead of his upcoming solo release titled Est. 1997.
In "Numbers", Konata describes all the numbers that surrounded him as he grew up in NYC. These numbers are unique to him and describe his personal experiences. He raps about how his father left him and his family at the age of 3 and how his mother worked 2 jobs to provide for them. He also shares the heartbreaking story of being robbed on Christmas eve and having no presents at 6 years old. Yet in despite of all the struggle and heartache early on in Konata's life he found and turned to God. And through God he was able to rise from those circumstances and live a happy and fulfilling life.
Konata Small's debut EP Est. 1997 will be available early 2017 on Good City Music.
