“This from the latest collection, my boy
You can copy the wave when I drop in the summer
Fiends got the city up under the wing like it’s fried rice
I done died twice, I got nine lives, that means seven to spare
Vision blurry, but the hindsight always 20/20, I see Heaven and Hell”
If you haven’t heard this cut yet, get a plate and enjoy 🥡.
