The second verse exemplifies Lo's ability to speak to both the young and the old, as he articulates the struggle of a bi-racial girl: "Family on the light side, don't accept the dark side/ Sorta like Apartheid, pass each other by like The Pharcyde/ 'FatLip' like her daddy, flat butt like her mammy".
While some of the references in "Gray" might go over the head of a younger listener, the message nonetheless resounds with passion and clarity. Says One Be Lo, "We all experience gray in our lives, but it's for a reason, and it's never permanent". Expect to have "Gray" on repeat, and don't be surprised if this jam becomes an uplifting concert closer.
