He notes that he can never depend on anyone because of the lessons he has learned in the music industry and also in his career in general. Lil Felly reports that he was left behind in music when most of the people he started with went mainstream.
The rapper talks about his struggle and gives hope to his fans with his grass to grace story. He mentions that he has gone through challenges both in his life and music. Lil Felly talks about a lot that had him pinned down all his life.
Katapilla, who is missing from the video that has comedian Eric Omondi involved, talks about his journey saying that he has always lived his life without having to pretend to his fans. This song embodies the two rapper ability to flow seamlessly on the beat without breaking a sweat.
