This song has mad heart. We’ve all been there, made mistakes, realized we kinda screwed up. But at the same time, live and learn, what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger.Â Sounds like ya boy Nems is growing up. 24 years old with wisdom beyond that. A lot of people don’t reach thatÂ self-analysis stage until they are 34, or 44 or .. never.
Third verse is my favorite:
“Def Jam wanted to sign us, SHADY wanted my story,
But my reputation entered the room right before me,
True story, the drugs had me empty,
When I’m focused though, no man can stand against me,
But the Devil had me fooled, thinkin that I need something to perform,
When I don’t need NUTHIN’ to get on,
Ecstasy diet was the quiet before the storm,
Pocket fulla drugs required to do a song…
I did it all night long and slept the day away,
Woke up when it was dark out and couldn’t stay awake
I had to change, couldn’t take it any longer,
It didn’t kill me, so I guess it made me stronger”
The beginning is a freestyle a capela. The actual song starts at 0:56. Video edited & directed by: H.VIEW. Not sure who did the beat or who’s singing, but its dope and really sets the mood for what Nems is building on.
