    Since releasing my album Show Must Go On, I've been producing a lot of beats. Today, I filmed myself cutting vocals, adding sounds and effects, etc and thought it would be cool to post something new?

    Sometimes I get too caught up in the marketing of my music and forget to just do what I love doing and that's rap. Headstrong is a song I wrote about people wishing to see you fail but regardless, you maintain a strong head throughout.

    I might do more videos like this in the future, so if you vibe = Subscribe. if you like = Like. And if you think it sucks, leave your educated negativity in the comments ;-) #Headstrong

    ✶ LYRICS ✶

    VERSE 1
    Don’t get it twisted, anybody can be a hater
    Being in a team of players don’t mean you’re safer
    They wanna see us lower than them
    They wanna stunt our growth, don’t want us growing again

    Your girl could pick any man to blow in the ends
    Your man could make a hoe of your friend
    So keep your radar blinking
    It ain’t paranoia to wonder what they are thinking - but don’t display your inkling

    Just keep it locked until you strike, knowledge is power
    Don’t follow them down the road, swallow, devour the info
    It ain’t checkers, it’s chess with poker faces
    I’ve been in broken places, lost focus, demotivated

    But I came back headstrong, they wanted to get me gone
    But not yet, they kicked the shit at me, that’s what I fed on
    Breadcrumbs, yeah, I found my way back
    I’ve been this way since way back and now it’s pay back, what

    CHORUS
    At first it came to me by surprise
    Didn’t matter to me though, I’m twice as nice
    And haters are usually dead wrong
    That’s why I’m headstrong, that’s why I’m headstrong (headstrong!)

    It ain’t right at all
    Praying on our downfall
    I don’t say it to sound cool
    They be hating, I’m saying, they’re praying on our downfall

    VERSE 2
    Headstrong but they been hating on me
    I walked fields alone with snakes at my feet
    But I’ll be damned if I ain’t chasing my dream
    Kick me in my strong head, I still ain’t facing defeat

    Some people have mistakes that others won’t waiver
    Skeletons in your closet, you gotta be a renovator
    Don’t sweat the doubts, they’ll go later
    But sometimes, you can be your own hater

    We let the outside in, consuming the worst
    Our brains are full with too many words
    We ain’t only human, you heard? Nah, there’s more to us
    But we don’t wanna step out of line and cause a fuss

    There’s nothing wrong with being selfish, in fact
    If you want me to be selfless then that’s you being selfish, you twat
    I learned a long time ago
    Everyone else got a path and you gotta find your own

    CHORUS
    At first it came to me by surprise
    Didn’t matter to me though, I’m twice as nice
    And haters are usually dead wrong
    That’s why I’m headstrong, that’s why I’m headstrong (headstrong!)

    It ain’t right at all
    Praying on our downfall
    I don’t say it to sound cool
    They be hating, I’m saying, they’re praying on our downfall

    VERSE 3
    Said I don’t say it to sound cool, I’m just telling the facts
    Tired of being hungry, guess I’m fed up of that
    Spent some time with my head up my crack
    Ignorance ain’t bliss if you know better than that

    I’ve already said they’ll bring you down, so keep a watchful eye
    In a blink, imposters strike, it’ll cost you time
    I’ve been the one to draw it, been the one to cross the line
    But if you ain’t living then what’s a life?

    No longer thinking of exes, they don’t cross my mind
    Didn’t need the company, I’m the boss of mine
    I write my life down, maybe you’ll pick up on it
    Asking you to buy all, I’m as sick as vomit

    I feel bad for my dogs when I see ‘em put down
    Feel the need to protect the weak and I’m on the look out
    It ain’t right at all so I keep my circle small
    Don’t need no more friends, I’ll be no perfect fool

    CHORUS
    At first it came to me by surprise
    Didn’t matter to me though, I’m twice as nice
    And haters are usually dead wrong
    That’s why I’m headstrong, that’s why I’m headstrong (headstrong!)

    It ain’t right at all
    Praying on our downfall
    I don’t say it to sound cool
    They be hating, I’m saying, they’re praying on our downfall
