Featuring British band Tears For Fears’, the track was first released on September 23rd 2022 with production led by OG Parker, Go Grizzly, Landstrip Chip, London Jae & Chris Hughes.
“I’m by far one of the hardest workers
Real firm believer in “practice make perfect”
You can gather all the water, stay thirsty
Took a lot to get us here, we broke curses
Kill or be killed, the field show no mercy
Losers just lose while winners get worshiped
I came here for fun, let’s get turnt up
Somebody pass me a Budweiser, a cold one
I wanna rule the world, I can’t hold you
Hell of a life, I feel like I’m chosen
Head on tight, I feel like I’m focused
I ain’t ever satisfied, I want more
Covid came and held us up, we back rolling
Look at all the people in here, we got motion
Everybody back outside, that’s sum to toast to
Whole bunch of real good vibes, it feel so cool
I think it’s about that time, it’s getting closer
Whole lotta fingers crossed, a lotta hoping
Wishing for the best, preparing for the worst too
Got out here and bust my ass, I had to work too
Some stuff is outta my hand, I can’t control it
If I don’t know nothing dawg, I know one thing” Baby raps over the track.
Notably, the visuals are directed by Julien Christian Lutz a.k.a. Director X.
