This is for my people
Trying to make that dollar in the street
This is for the homeless
That trying to find their beat
This is for the ones
That got they eyes closed
When the sun is coming up
Ain't no excuse
To keep on riding into battle
To stay on top

This is for my people
Trying to make that dollar in the street
This is for the weak
Deacon write a song
Adams are we
Ever play God
Apple's all Eve
Every dream is south-pawed
Trapped in ring
I'm the motherfucker that you packed up and shipped to sea
Have you thought passed tracking all
Don't seem to mind
No sympathizing
This ain't the time
It's freaks design what
Every top head on Wall Street's just stacking time
Every string is pulled by foolish motherfuckers
What you planning it's a feeling
Magic tricking with your title
Wipe all
Ever seen the cheddar built up stacked
We aim to sting
Middle finger takes a walk cha-ching
Ain't obscene with your eye paint
Seen the war to chic for me
It's a sacrifice for all to be

This is for my city
Crossfaded jaded love for the streets
This is for the soldiers
Fighting battles every time they hit the streets

In January, the idea was to write one or two rap tracks, but eventually grew into a full album of music over the 9-month period of recording. ... more
