We questioned the young artist with how its affected him in the music world. Sauce.K stood quiet for a moment before answering, “My friend may not be here physically but he is still here with me spiritually. And through music his soul lives on and I want people to remember him when they listen to that song. He helped me write my song ‘Good Intentions’ shortly before he passed away. ‘Ease the pain’ reflects on how bad his passing affected me along with other struggles I dealt with. I teared up writing down the final verse as soon as it came down to writing about my friend. “I even lost my brother he was only 22. I lost my mind hoping it was me instead of you. I even prayed to god hoping he would take me too. When I saw you in that casket I still hoped it wasn’t true.” It still sends chills down my spine when I listen to that part, it just gives me flash backs of when it all happened. And I wanted people to understand how I felt and to understand my story of losing someone. So many fans were touched by the artist’s song that The single would eventually reach major traction from the United Kingdom.
