Bump J gives you a firm look into the mind state of a hustler, someone who make things happen by any means.
Bump J lyrical content with his vocal recording shows he can really express his emotions threw music. He starts off the song taking full responsibility for his past from crimes, from there he began giving everyday citizens his view on life.
"I look you in your face you know what come to mind," "Food, Stain, Sweet, Chocolate," "Catch you slap you with that banger, and go in your pockets."
Those rhymes gives you insight into the mind of villain, when it comes to street living there are no rules no time for mistakes when your live from bedrock, can you survive a head shot.
The second verse starts off with Bump J taking us back to having the perfect plan asking was it worth it
"The streets will eat you then regurgitate you," was the memories really worth the paper told Shake I had the perfect capper."
