Day 7: Song by a Chicago Artist

For day #7 of the Vocalo Challenge, here’s a song by a Chicago artist.

I first heard this song coming over the (pretty awesome) sound system at Nighthawk Chicago. It’s got amazing flow, and allows a great look into the ethos of coming up on city’s other side.

Southside ’round 91st and Cottage Grove
I done seen a lot of failures still I found myself a lot of goals
YCA was where I found myself
I started using lead to harness gold
It’s way easier to smile, let your local hatin’ ass nigga know
Learning patience fast, sippin’ slow
All this water in me, I’ve been water bendin’ on the southern side of the ‘go

Thanks again to Nate the Bartender for tuning me into the source.
