Voiceover, Dialog, Spoken Text, Script, or Lyrics
It's like, me now, like, no matter where I go in life. The things that I accomplish, right? You know, you walk in that room, your past still come in with you. You know, people talk like, oh, that guy was the dealer from the projects and do do do do do 'em. Back into that duality, sound like that celebration of, you know, where we are now, you know, on some big yacht and throwing some champagne in the water. But the undertow of the thing is like the same water that brought us here. You know, originally. You know, as slaves, so it has this whole duality. And how we are rewriting history. You know, even, uh, the stories that were told about the history of America. I'm anti Santa Maria. Talkin' about these stories. Only Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace. Biggie Smalls. Silk and fleeces, lay on my Jesus, oh my God I hope y'all don't get seasick. You know, they're playing with the theme now, being seasick or seeing these things and being jealous of it, you know?
I hope they don't get seasick.
