This one grabbed me because it doesn’t glorify the street life. Instead, like Nas and other master storytellers, it tells more about the perils and dangers that come with being out in the streets. It also speaks on how the life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Each artist provides a look into that gritty life while never saying that it’s something people should actively pursue. I also love the boombap-meets-trunk rattler beat, as it had me bobbing my head all throughout the song. This song should appear on Nostra’s Violet Skies EP, so check it out below and support dope music in all its forms.
