Lyrics: This is that fresh out of the oven
Wit tha bakers dozen
Watchin rappin turn to nothin
At tha hands of rubbish
A couple crutchin wit tha bass
Still caint catch us
And its jus my luck that my year
Of comin up, i still i been raisin tha tier
Up above weak minded politicin
Wit some pretty women
And a dozen niggas
Steady beggin for tha plays on insta
Before you talk all ya shit, do ya research
Before you get a feature better change ya t-shirt
Gross sister ass niggas, you been feelin blue
I been doin me, so what does it matter to you
Never gave a fuck, money i been savin up
Tryina make it out the city, i been brave enough
Chasin blunts with money schemes and honey dreams
Enough to turn waves of energy to symmetry
And play it thru ya speakers jus to resonate within
And accurately display the life of every kid
Who’s self was steady hid, but still they live
In an environment n see life for what it is
Still I persist, never backin down from anythin
Fate is in my left and my right holds tha mic my key
Two octaves below, where my soul exist
Trapped in this end but im more focused than
I’ve ever been since i first started in
But this is just tha beginnin
But this is just tha beginnin
But this is just tha beginnin
But this is just tha beginnin

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
