I'm sure many of you know what a sucker I am for hip-hop that has a deeper meaning, but let me tell you what.. this song literally gave me chills as I listened to it. It's not common in this growing hip-hop community for artists to lyricize the type of things that Jake Miller does. Instead of the usual rapping about drugs, money, or girls - Jake Miller takes a different stance to provide meaningful lyrics to his young listeners. Jake takes a step back and talks about some of the hardships faced through daily life all around the world; motivating children that are bullied, have cancer, or other difficulties. Ironically enough, the title of the song states it all; Jake Miller is sure to touch "a million lives" with this inspirational and soulful track. He is a prime example of what this music industry needs, someone to come along and change the entire concept and meaning behind hip-hop. Major props to this guy, honestly one of the best young artists out there.
