• Stik Figa - Holding Back Tears 09 June 2017 | View comments

  • "Holding Back Tears" is a song I wrote as a way to deal with the emotions of loss in the context of my personal experiences as a black man in America. The constant push and pull of what is considered acceptable versus how I feel, and making the right choices for my survival and being able to keep my conscious intact. I'm sure many can relate, so, I thought I would share, and be transparent about it all."
