After Thought


This K'La and this has been the coldest winter ever, the mixtape
And I just wanna take time to thank everybody for listening
And taking time out of your day to listen to my story
And I really hope that you enjoyed it as much as I enjoy telling it to you
I also wanna give a special thanks to Reggie, V103, the whole V103 family
Music lines, Roscoe, Jasmin, Jay Holliday, big Jay, the whole music line family
And special thanks to Shaid and Shaquila, that's the team, couldn't do it without yo all
And of course, everybody back home in Gary, Indiana
Ah, my mom, dad, my daughters they're my inspiration
Yeah, I think when you know what you're supposed to go do it, no matter what
And that's what I do, I do what I was meant to do
It's what I was meant for, apparently

So anyway, I came to Atlanta in what's the year 2010?
In 2009, um, specifically for the purpose of music
I didn't know how the fuck I was gonna do this, haha
I had no clue, but, I came out here to try
And it worked
It worked but um, think as most and I don't know why is like this
Maybe it's cause my daddy was a bass player
That's usually what I use my melodies off of bass hehe, and she works
Like the bass notes, it's like I guess that's where I get my melodies from but
But it always keeps you on like a low key, like a nice vibe below
But that's what I fuck with, cause I've always been a, been a fan of old music like
Al Green, yeah, Al Green, Donnie Billy Holliday, like
And Paco, I used to listen to a lot of Paco,
Paco is the bass player, you guys don't know him
My dad used to listen to a lot of that but
You know, a lot of old shit, that's what I grew up listening to
So that's what I make my music off
The lyrics come from experience, so, if you enjoy that then I guess you enjoy the life to it
Um, where's 2pac, somebody tell me, cause I need that music in my life right now
Like this would be the perfect time for some music like that
I need some 2pac, I need Laurent Hill, I need some fucking old school
I need some good shit right now to get me through this shit
I need some good shit, I need some advice, I need some advice
And I don't hear that shit, I don't hear that shit nowhere
All I hear is shake your ass in the club bitch get money
And for real, the honest I'm saying though
Cause I'll be hurt, sometimes I'll be hurt, like emotionally
Cause you know I am, I don't talk about my fucking feelings and shit
You know I'm saying, that's not me, I wanna I don't do that shit
So I need that type of music to help me
Cause otherwise I feel like I'ma go crazy, what the fuck is going on?
Like there's nobody understand what the fuck I'm going through
But then used to be able to listen to songs like then be ok
But that's why motherfuckers going crazy out here,
They don't know what the fuck to listen to
Everybody telling you to shake your ass in the club bitch get money
What the fuck you gonna do? What the fuck you gonna do?
Like really what the fuck you gonna do?
You can't even go out to the club and have a good time
Cause somebody coming through the speakers like bitch shake your ass, get money
Get money, bitch shake your ass, get money
Like motherfucker I ain't come here for that
I was on the work day to day, I just wanna come here and chill for a second
I don't wanna shake my ass, I don't wanna get money, I just worked all day for money
I just wanna come here and drink a little bit god damn it
Do I have to shake my ass and get money?
That shit ain't fair, I got kids at home, I gotta go home and take care of my kids
I don't wanna shake my ass and get money right now
But that's all they tell you to do, that's all they tell you to do
Shake your ass and get money, I don't wanna hear that shit no more
Never again every time I shake my ass and get money
But y'all understand what I'm talking about though? Y'all do?
It's a fucked up world, it's a really fucked up world, out there
You gotta find a way through it, no matter what level you coming in on
You really gotta find your way, it's already written what's supposed to happen so
I'm playing my part, well I hope, very well.
