“But still I’m on the grind like some bad brakes/ Cause I remember the time I was last place…”
Damn it feels good to see people up on it. Seems like the summer of 2004 was yesterday and Trey’s Young & Heartless mixtapes were all over the tri-state. Unlike NYC or L.A., Petersburg, Virginia, isn’t exactly known for its musical history. A R&B singer taking the Hip-Hop approach by jumping over industry cuts wasn’t the norm, but Trey sounded at home doing this.
Which is exactly why I’m pleased he’s still dropping these type of tracks even as his star power increases each day. Songz borrows Gucci’s ode to all things canary yellow and flips it into his own personal tale of hard work and blessings.
From Washington Street (that’s in Petersburg) to the White House. Respect.
