    Lyrics:
    I reminisce for a spell, just the other morning
    Thinking how important it’s to know about your origins
    I ain’t out here to be no historian
    both my parents were born salvadorian
    Now, they was 2 kids living in a war
    Could stay home or could explore
    Either way they’d still be poor
    But one of the 2 options provides more
    Opportunities for their kids
    At 16 they went a took that risk
    Got up Moved to New York for a minute
    Then Parents got divorced so of course new beginning
    Grew up with no dad
    Living like a nomad
    Moments weren’t Kodak
    People say that’s so sad
    But I don’t wanna go back
    The struggle made me know that
    I can hit the curves constantly being thrown at me
    Life is no fairy tale it’s scary as hell
    They raised me very well
    Wouldn’t change a thing that we went through
    When I reminisce over you

    I reminisce on the greatest stories
    Of all the musicians that came here before me
    Laying down concrete on top of the gravel
    Paving a way for the path less traveled
    So we can get further easily
    On the way failing repeatedly
    Pushing the limit of what’s feasibly
    Demanding R-E S-P E-C T
    But we in a genre where the good die young
    Killing each other getting sprung on drugs
    Under the facade that it’s all for fun
    I pray I don’t get caught up in the cycle
    So these verses serve as reminders
    Keeping me focused I put up them blinders
    But I take em down looking back at my view
    When I reminisce over you my god Show less
