Greed (Avaritia), also known as avarice, is a sin of desire.
As defined outside Christian writings, greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs, especially with respect to material wealth.
This song started as a freestyle, in fact most of the current version is freestyled. We started creating greed in Adriano’s bedroom after an 8 hour session of sitting down, creating the beat from scratch and recording all ideas I had on the spot. We went for angelic choir harmonies to begin the project because this is the song I wanted to bring the listener into my hell with.
This intro is an oxymoron (pun intended) because as this project is one consisting of the 7 deadly sins of hell, I wanted to make sure that it sounded as heavenly as possible. Lyrically, I took the route of artist greed and how I desire everything that comes with fame and fortune. Keeping women aside, I focused on things that I would be able to control such as money and power - things that won’t run away as long as I keep we up with what I need to do. Upon finalizing the track with Austin, we ensured that it had all necessary harmonies to make it sound as pretty as possible, and made sure it blended nice with the next track, pride.
