Asked to describe the overall meaning of “Stay Down,” Riverside Louis writes, “This song ‘Stay Down’ is about trying to convince someone it will be worth it and beneficial if they stay loyal and hold it down and wait how long it takes for the other person to get they self together, because money don’t define ya character. It also has a message for people like myself, that we need to build with each other, other than do what people want us to do.”
Riverside Louis also says his music is intended to stand for itself.
“Now my music is just that,” he says. “It’s music. My music is that old feel of actually hearing quality rap music which is fun, inspiring and motivating.”
