Jelly Roll’s “Killin’ Me” is a great example of how the TN artist is able to use his inner demons to create beautiful music. There is a dichotomy in “Killin’ Me”. Jelly seems more happy when he’s down, which leads to the overuse of medication, which leads to more down, yet more creation, and the cycle continues. It’s not the newest theme, but not many can do it as genuinely honest as Jelly Roll can.
Not many people in the music game are putting honest words on their fans like Jelly Roll does in “Killin’ Me”
