I would like to take you through my life, here’s some size 11s you should lace them up tight because where we are going we run through the night and where we end up is so far out of sight.
Today I can look up and thank the stars because a few years ago my life was pushing me behind bars, fear was not a concept I could understand and now fear I understand but I fear no man.
Try standing on the corner hustling for something extra, try moving weight to get a little paper. Try feeling there’s no hope and no escape try feeling like the system was designed so you could fail.
Try being me and clawing your way out, try loosing friends because you began to doubt. Try explaining that you were just kids, and the shit you did then was just a means to an end.
You see adversity doesn’t hold us back, it’s a lack of belief that keeps us off track.
So I could have been another statistic, brown boy born of poverty and mischief.
And it wasn’t till I realised they made us a gimmick that I rose up and decided to kill it.
