This song is a product if the streets. Avoiding danger growing up became lines like” Better aim good trying to hit me” and ” Paint a nigga Leonardo Da Vinvi”.
This song was created from that journey chasing a money bag and getting into beefs in the street that can only be settled one way. Friends turn to foes, frienemies I call them. We never notice whose hating us due to jealousy.
I live in… Sacramento to Reno
