In the song “La Belle Histoire”, Da KJ Boy portrays himself as that person whose lifestyle has undergone a glaring transformation.
He is now able to man up in situations that were beyond his control years back.
Growing up was not easy for Da KJ Boy, “I’m going back to the past, I’m having some flashbacks. I remember my dad when he faced difficulties putting enough food on the table.”
“He tried his best but couldn’t provide enough, and sometimes we were late in paying our bills even our school fees. In fact I was always chased from school, although our dad struggled to make things happen.”
An urge to end all that hardship pushed Da KJ Boy to set out in search of what he could do to better his life and that of his family. “I looked at everything and I was tired, I was fed up, and I said let me go get it my way, let me get into the street.”
After trying out several things, he was finally able to fend for himself. That is when he felt he was ready to get into the rap game, which is what he had always wanted to do.
In Da KJ Boy’s voice, “’La Belle Histoire’ illustrates a journey from nothing to something, from counting coins to counting real paper.”
He however points out that he has not yet arrived where he wants to be. He indicates that much work still needs to be done for him to reach the top. Notwithstanding, he believes it will end with huge success.
“La Belle Histoire” is one of the songs on Da KJ Boy’s recent tape titled “Le Nouveau”.
