This a scrimmage to me, all these blemished MC's
Infamously it's about image I see
But if it's bars, not about bread, to hell with the wealth
This is light work for Budden when it comes to going against the rappers in it for the money. Most mainstream rappers are about the money, cars and chains. They just want to get noticed, unlike the old days where it was just about the message, expression, telling stories, rhyming and educating.
Got brothers sellin out cause they greedy to get paid
But me, I’m comin from the soul
And if it don’t go gold, my story still gettin told
