“I’m still Nigeria’s best chance of a rapper winning a Grammy. For now their first rapper to ever attend the Grammys,” he raps.
“Ain’t no two ways. Flights every two days. Because chasing a bag means living out of a suitcase.
“Not the type to brag and compliments give me toothaches. I’m all about the plaque like platinum dey toothpaste.
“I need a Nike deal for my pen game. Lord knows all of my verses should be in King James. I do this for my city that is smiling in pain. For us patience no be virtue, it’s just somebody’s name.
“My advice to those waiting. Always bring the hard drive, there’s something worth saving.
“Ambition in my archives i no dey fear failing. Got the grace of God on me coz my mumsi stays praying
