    This is my new single, "Shoulders of Giants" featuring Substantial and Stephy the Sapphic Songstress.

    I'm inspired by those who have pushed and motivated me to be a better person and I stand on their shoulders. (Isaiah 41:10).

    Thanks to Substantial and Steph the Sapphic Songstress for lifting up the track with their talent. Such a blessing for me to work with you.

    Hope you enjoy the song.

    Verse 1
    I stand tall 'cause I'm on the shoulders of giants
    Stand alone like a calm soul in a riot
    Studying the ways of the bold & defiant
    Who never chose to be silent
    Played the role of a lion
    Feeding those totally reliant
    On their wealth of wit instead of gold or some diamonds
    In a world known to be cold and it's violent
    I'm marching with Martin overthrowing tyrants
    Music up loud 'til it's roarin' like sirens
    Now they say my music is known for inspiring
    Maybe that Jun's with me and the spirit of Miles and Marley
    Or Parker's lyrical style that haunts me
    Plus I'm studying Nas, Com & Jill
    So I can make music it's hard not to feel
    Like Stevie
    No wonder we call that the real.
    Believe me.
    I'm as strong as foundation built
    Beneath me

    If I have reached,
    What seems to be the highest peak (It was on your shoulders)
    Though I was weak
    You showed just how far I could see (And the journey's not over)

    Me alone these accolades ain't meant for
    The man that I am is largely due to my mentors
    I try to do what I was sent for
    A long list of people should be sharing this splendor. Raise them
    Glasses if you help raise him, amazing.
    Ask this if Jun didn't praise him would you play them
    "Classics" or would you just label him average
    I ain't one to debate with my maker what the path is
    I just thank him for the opportunity
    And for folks like J Dilla who influenced me
    More than musically he did it thru his illness
    Still inspired to create though he was real sick
    Thanked his momma when I met her man, that's real ***
    You ain't worthy of respect if you don't feel this
    To my giants/heros God bless
    I'll carry the torch while carrying who got next
