Hip-Hop Artist Dutty Devioso delivers a "heartfelt" performance... Feel This 1!!! The Song Features John Barnes on the Hook...

Yah, It's been a long time coming
Yah, And I came a long way, man
Still got some changing to do though, still got some stuff to clean up mane...
That's what's up for sure -- for sure
That's what's up for sure -- for sure

[Verse One - Dutty Devioso]
It's raining outside, & the skies are grey,,,
Sitting on the couch, feeling like I'm miles away.
Reminiscing bout the times when the ayes were nays.
& instead of my songs, homie, I got played!
See it wasn't no love in the streets for me,,,
Just a bunch of cold mugs, & animosity.
Yeah, I tried selling drugs, had at least a key,,,
But the price of risk was too steep for me.
So I, cut that out..., tried another route,,,
Scraped the residue off of the bottom of the pot.
Then I, shook dat back..., bought dat track,,,
But kept my hands on the gat, never brought that back.
I kept a hustle on the side, never lost that jack,,,
I kept money over broads, never caught that clap.
Had a run in with the laws, but I fought that crap,,,
It's been a long time coming, 100 miles & running.

Its been a long time coming
Just a long time.
oh o (adlib)

[Verse Two - Dutty Devioso]
Sometimes I think about my childhood,,,(ya)
Growing up in Wildwood, wasn't always all good.
I ain't have ery'thing that a child should,,,
We had bread but, daddy wasn't round much.
Mama tried to make the most of things,,,(yep)
But she worked all the time, nearly broke her mane.
See her heart went numb, like novicane,,,
& for all them years never spoke ya name.(not once)
& what's worse? Not having your daddy to come home?
Or watching your mama working her fingers to the bone?
When you & your brotha spending most of your time alone,,,
Radio is the guardian, t.v. the chaperone.
I used to think you would call on the telephone,,,
To say that you left, cause you bought us a better home.
Mama never had the heart to tell me that I was wrong,,,
Was a long time coming, but figured it on my own.

Its been a long time coming
Just a long time.
oh o (adlib)

[Verse Three - Dutty Devioso]
I heard a man say, "scars give character",,,
If that's the case, then my heart got plenty.
Been broke more times, than the nose on an amatuer,,,
But see erytime I faught I finished.
Had folks that prolly never thought I'd finish,,,
What I start, when I said I'd record 4 a living.
They just looked & laughed, & some ignored my vision,,,
But it didn't destroy, it just restored my vision.
(ha ha ha), it didn't kill me, it just made me stronger,,,
Just a minor set back, gotta wait lil' longer.
That's all, It didn't phase me, it just gave me strength,,,
I'mma stand up dude, cowards plead the fifth.
They only wanna show love when they see you're rich,,,
Now i get daps & hugs, cause i got me some chips.
I got the game on lock, got a leash on it,,,
It's been a long time coming, still d.v.s.

Its been a long time coming
Just a long time.
oh o (adlib)
