His transition from singing to hip hop wasn’t just a change in genre—it was a leap into a new way of communicating with the world.
His tracks “To Be” and “Risk It All” were not just songs but anthems of boldness and vulnerability. Jus Rzd’s approach to music is a reflection of his character: unafraid to be confident and direct, using his art to express the multifaceted nature of his experiences and faith.
The Emotional Resonance of Music Creation
The conversation took a turn into the intricacies of crafting music that touches the soul. The creative process is a delicate balance of introspection and feedback, as highlighted by the story of a song that was canceled after a friend’s honest critique. This moment underscored the importance of music that mirrors the diverse emotions and experiences of our audience.

Hip hop, DJ Focus, emphasized, is a genre that transcends age, offering solace and inspiration to adults navigating the complexities of life.

One of the most poignant segments of the episode was the discussion on loneliness. DJ Focus and Dice Gamble delved into the importance of self-reflection and understanding the root causes of this often-pervasive feeling.

Personal Growth in Single Seasons
They also touched on the importance of personal growth and development during single seasons. It’s a time to focus on education, spiritual goals, aligning values, and understanding one’s long-term plans. Involving God in the midst of a single season is crucial, as is learning to love oneself.
Dice Gamble brought to light that loneliness isn’t exclusive to being single; it can also occur within a marriage. The key to addressing these feelings is through counseling and open communication.
