Meta P “Dragonfly (My Other Heartbeat)" (2012)

Some of the greatest pieces of art come from a place of pain and hurt and the new Matty Mischief produced track by Rhode Island rapper Meta P (aka Metaphysics) is a prime example of this. "Dragonfly (My Other Heartbeat)" (song/video above) is dedicated to his twin sister Lindsay Sbardella who passed two months ago on June 23, 2012 at age 28. The hip-hop song is a heartfelt, truly touching tribute with the surviving sibling rapping lines to his "best friend" like "nobody loves you like your twin brother in the womb together….I can't believe you're gone….. I can see you in the stars. I can see you in my mom …I hold you in my heart till me meet on the other side."  Meta P, who recently got named Providence Phoenix's "Best Rap Act 2012," is giving the song away for as a free download but he encourages people to donate in Lindsay's name to the RISPCA. "She loved animals," said the artist who has dropped such albums such as 2010's Off the Rock and Edison's Ink earlier this year. His forthcoming project is called Evolution and will such tracks as "Kill Swag" featuring Celph Titled (Demigodz). I caught up with the artist to ask him more about this touching tribute to his sister.
