While life in any ghetto across the country is a bleak existence to many, there are those (including successful rappers) who aspire to stay planted and run their block. As Mike Beck can tell you, these decided few have obviously ignored what Momma Use To Say and can expect negative consequences as an end to their once hopeful means. Beck strays from the norm by giving a flip side to the street life; a rarity in today’s glorified-hood game. Toss in a soulful hook from Tony Sunshine and Drop Dead Beats’ bass-heavy production and class is dismissed. For homework re-listen to Momma Use To Say and let it be a lesson to all impatient, upcoming hustlers; a dime doesn’t turn into a dollar overnight.
