New Single and Podcast Episode Explores The Self-Made Man Myth and the Advantage of Working in Teams
WORK IN PROGRESS, 11 Unreleased Tracks and Alternative Cuts from Mineo’s Lost Files Available Friday, August 23rd
After reflecting on the pressures of becoming successful and self-reliant, rapper Andy Mineo wrote and recorded “I Don’t Need You”. The third single from his upcoming WORK IN PROGRESS mixtape seemingly glorifies the mantra but, later reveals at the core of “I Don’t Need You” is fear. On the track, Andy skillfully breaks down the walls built by past trauma and puts his pride to the side to reveal exactly what he needs.
During the podcast, Andy and Del sit down with Pastor and Author John Onwuchekwa, of Cornerstone Church in Atlanta to discuss the concerns regarding self-sufficiency, healing versus revenge and the benefits of community.
