(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music review: Sometimes remix by T.I Blaze ft Olamide

T.I Blaze is a Nigerian singer currently signed to Dvpper Record Label. This is the remix of the song Sometimes, and it features Olamide.

What is the song “Sometimes” by T.I all about?

The artist in this song laments about an endless difficult life (even though one is working) which can be very discouraging, and pressurize one to do illegal things even when he/she doesn’t want to.

Regardless of how tiring it is to keep struggling, the artist encourages himself, he says he is not relenting but will keep working till he gets what he wants, and be able to provide for his mum and loved ones.
