about

After 7 years in and out of homeless shelters, Dynesti emerges with a story to tell. People from the bottom see the world differently. There are no filters, and society isn’t as pretty as it appears. The streets make people into warriors. This is a battle cry.

lyrics

You don’t have to deal with what I got going on at all
Ooo-hoo
You don’t have to deal
I’ve gotta fight it on my own
Ooo-hoo

Ice in my psyche
Vibe on that “try me”
You think I’m rude
Fuck you politely
Tired of climbing, there’s nothing exciting
Actors and fools? Why am I trying?
I’ll give you that two face
Pre-order with no wait
You eat with both hands
No napkin, and no plate
Send me that advance
Trap me like your favorite rapper
That freedom we race after
Slavery with no masters

You don’t have to deal with what I’ve got going on at all (oo-hoo)
You don’t have to deal, I gotta fight it on my own (oo-hoo)
It gets real in the field mutha fucker (real, real, real, real)
It gets real out here (oo-hoo)
It gets real in the field mutha fucker (real, real, real, real)
It get real out here (oo-hoo)

DMX, I’m losing my fuckin’ mind
No respect, they shade tryna wreck my shine
Wait a sec, while I skip through the fuckin’ line
Cut the check, my credit card still declines
You know how many times demons were talking to me?
How many times I thought I should sell this pussy?
How many lives lost to the drugs and pain?
So many lives thinking they could win this game
See I got the vision in the shelter system
All the world is missing is some comprehension
Too much pride to say that I’ve been a victim
Check the resume, I was never quitting

You don’t have to deal with what I’ve got going on at all
You don’t have to deal, I gotta fight it on my own (oo-hoo)
It gets real in the field mutha fucker (real, real, real, real)
It gets real out here (oo-hoo)
It gets real in the field mutha fucka-a-a (real, real, real, real)
It get real out here (oo-hoo)
