As quite an introspective person, I wrote 'Reality Check' as a kind of insight into my thoughts. It's also a way to express my internal monologue. The concept was to go on a small journey through my stream of random consciousness.

I just wanted to talk about some of the things on my mind, really, like my struggles and aspirations in music and also in life. I also wanted to share my views on not being a stereotype but true to myself and trying to make positive changes; this is because of the bleakness of my environment. Sometimes, I feel a little disorientated in my environment, and it can make me feel weary, like most people I figure; so, I also wanted to show that side of things, and the fact that I am determined to not be worn out and continue to strive.

The track's intended to be a journey, so I just let the bars flow quite naturally when I was writing. Plus, as the name suggest, I was just being real. I had to be real with myself too, though. Sometimes, we all need a reality check.
