Available on Spotify soundcloud and apple music. The visuals are on point with the opening bar “I pray to God the almighty father that they don’t come and get us”, as he’s stood in a church looking for protection knowing life on road can get you in sticky situations.

The Simplicity of the video mixed with the lyrics get the point across, you can hear the pain and rawness in Cloude’s voice and lyrics. “It’s cold in these streets, it’s fucking depressing can someone love us” this line hits hard and is just straight to the point and honest.

“We felt the pressure to go and do better, on so many levels”
“Voice of the streets I’m feeling like Durk so I wrote a letter”
“And I’m still in the field I be posted up like scarecrow, me and the devil made a deal so I’m sending shots at your halo”
“Leave his top blown like volcanos”
“Couple shots to his navel, put a hole in his middle like bagels”
“2 pistols on me like Yosemite Sam”
These are just a few between the hook and verses, there’s too many!
