Happiness generates different meanings for everyone. When we think of happiness, we think of ourselves living life to the fullest without a care in the world. If such a world existed, there would be no time for sadness or despair. The smiles of happy souls have longevity mostly because they are surrounded by people and things who contribute to them. However, there are many who only know sorrow. Who can they turn to? Enter Chicago’s own Mercocet.
After visiting the perils of sadness and depression, the optimistic rapper returns as resilient as ever, with the suitably titled, “He’s Back”. With its constant urgency for listeners to take good care of themselves, the song is also outlined with a hard hitting, pulsating beat, which equips it with all the makings of the next heavily rotated club anthem. Mercocet’s unique stage name derives from his devout desire to combat negative experiences from his past. “Merc” means “to fight” or “to kill” paired with “ocet”, which is a loose association with the painkiller Percocet. Together, both terms demonstrate how music helps to “kill the pain”. This is most definitely relatable for all music lovers.
Having garnered over 7.5M online streams to date, Mercocet’s fan base started to grow after his breakout hits “Slatt Science” and “Open Your Eyes” earned him his first million streams worldwide. Produced by Trademark, who has also collaborated with artists such as Trippie Redd, DC the Don and G Herbo, “He’s Back” is the perfect anecdote for anyone who has triumphantly bounced back from darkness.
