Khamari talks about dealing with addiction and heartbreak in this lyrical masterpiece. His perfect pitch croons elegantly across the beat in a lowly and sad place, with emotional melodies and beautiful harmonies that resonate with the soul.
The song “Doctor, My Eyes” talks about dealing with mental health issues, self-medicating, and then seeking treatment from a professional yearning to “Make it all go away. Doctor, would you give me something?” The texture of his voice blends smoothly with the electric guitar. It feels like taking a trip into his vulnerable subconscious and hearing the thoughts of his psyche battle in depression, while in the midst of his healing journey.
The unique perspective of Khamari’s mind really sits in the soul and intrigues the listener, inspiring the idea of mental healing and the stigmas around black men. The dynamics and intensity of the beat and his voice blends perfectly. The rhythm is consistent and soothing. His lyrics implants seeds in the mind that inspires deep self-reflection. The tempo is slow and the style really creates the mood for the music. We love this instrumentation and the skit at the end, inspiring Khamari to be gentle with his self and embrace his healing journey.
