BREAK!

Another 3 days have passed on our journey... you know what that means. Time for another break!

"Ride With Me" is a good one to break on, too. It's the kind of car music you can throw on pretty much any time of the day.

While we break, I want to share with you the books I've read over the course of making this album. Maybe it'll give you some deeper insight as to what I was influenced by while writing:

  • Decoded by Jay-Z
  • Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks
  • The 7 Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra
  • The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
  • You. Are. The. One. by Kute Blackson (super nice guy IRL)
  • Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson
  • As A Man Thinketh by James Allen
  • The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
  • The Social Organism by Oliver Luckett (much love, Oliver!)
  • Between The World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates
  • Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen

Hope these books excite you, entertain, and give you wisdom as they have for me. Tomorrow, we start back up... we're getting close to the end. Are you ready to tackle the rest of these excuses...?

 
 

Lyrics:

[Hook]
Come on and ride with me
And we gon’ share the night
It ain’t no better
Glide with me
And we gon’ share the night
It ain’t no better

Ride with me
Vibe with me
Ri-ri-ri
(x4)

[Verse 1]
Once again and we back in the lane
Got the jam that’ll make you move ya back and ya frame
Pinch ya nose if you wack and a lame
But if not, you better get down like ya changed ya last name
And we chillin’
What more can I say? Top billin’
From the city that can really steady major cap-peelin’
For a long ass time with the product that we dealin’
Now we drop the top so a brother feel the breeze
Good to know that we kill ‘em when we ball
They'd be winning if they went and got out of they own way
They probably okay, my prophecy flow pays
I just manifest the vision, they hollerin’ no way
Ask, believe and receive and you okay
It’s a beautiful life, a musical vice
The cuticles nice
Ya dutiful like when doing the pipe
When ya do it, do it more than one time

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
Couldn’t never diss this god
Chilly like I’m never taking Christmas off
Niggas know I piss them off
Still I’m in the city with a brick tick-tock
They don’t know how I’m doing it
It’s A.J. and Kid, we got the newest hit
Girls flock, they don’t know what to do with it
I’ma give em just a few rules
Now tell me:
“Fuck that shit they bout you”
When I ask, you say “I do”
When you move that thang on me
I ask, “You good”, you say “I’m cool”
When I tell you, “Say my name, you know my name”
You say, “I knew”
Don’t do once, I play by two’s
So we do it, do it more than one time

[Hook]
