“Grind for everything you need and want in life and pray for the humility and serenity to enjoy the fruits of your labor.” – #GRINDxPRAY
With HUMAN’s work, it is best to replay it a few times, so you can really grasp what he is expressing. That is his craft. Leaving messages upon messages, and this song isn’t anything less than that. I am so proud of him for continuing to create conscious music within the hip-hop realm. I’ve been his friend and supporting him since 2012, and I don’t regret it one bit. Much love to you HUMAN, along with Jace & AMO. ❤ Oh, by the way, this was shot in under 24 hours. Yeah, I know. 🙂

"We getting guap my nigga, moving work on the streets, we shooting cops my nigga, murk 'em all in the streets, my soul plane is taking over these industries, I'm swinging through watermelon trees eating chicken wings. The hot sauce I think they toss is a nice touch, the oval office and the board room's a bit much. Just give me the ball I'll shoot the shot for a million plus, it's empire and power now, we all living plush, this love and hip hop will put a nigga on the bus, in the back of the bus, where they pack all of us, but it's cool because the money says in "God we trust," they good white folks they ain't trying to fuck over us. We giving them culture my nigga, they tryna buy the slang, they bringing cameras to our hood just to see our gang, there's extra profit up in the deal if the eagle bang, there's more money up on the table if I dance and sang.
On BET, How you gonna try tell me who I be, how you gonna try to put a tag on me, I can barely see the light cuz of Black T.V. My momma let me stay up late to watch BET, How you gonna try tell me who I be, How you gonna try to put a tag on me, I can barely see the light cuz of Black T.V.
Fuck an education no one wants a reparation, its a blacker nation, cultural appropriation, they want a tan with cornrolls they love my flows, they got love for the niggas, they come to all our shows, no Black queens up on the scene only bad bitches, no money for the unity only for the snitches, Lee Daniels the Butler on the screen serving washing dishes, we got a Black president, we got power bitches. She in The Scandal, The Game, who's fucking Mary Jane, Comic View, BET Cinema critically acclaimed. Single parent, baby boy in Taraji's car, Mufasa died leaving Simba to have to fight off Scar, we got limits on our growth we aint going far, just give me the money, play my part, now I'm a Black star, no revolution or solution for the melanin in my cerebellum, be a good nigga or I'ma die a felon on…
On BET, How you gonna try tell me who I be, how you gonna try to put a tag on me, I can barely see the light cuz of Black T.V. My momma let me stay up late to watch BET, How you gonna try tell me who I be, How you gonna try to put a tag on me, I can barely see the light cuz of Black T.V."
