Considerably, this will push him ahead of those who are trying to break into the rapsphere. He stresses the importance of focusing on what’s best for you because everyone can’t be trusted.
He delivers, “The way I been moving I see that I’m different/But I can’t take chats back from any man like some dickhead/We was in the trenches making a dime bag.”
Deeper into the song, he drops some warning bars off to the haters. Additionally, MKHL showcases an unwavering tenacity, saying, “Wanna put me in the box like office/Keyboard tucked to your head like wanted.”
Given the context, the artist is just getting started. He has more releases on the way that are guaranteed to blow your mind.
