Backstory: Seein shares life and death stories, in graphic detail, about what is was like growing up in The Vandeveer Projects in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York. This song comes with a parental advisory warning.
Lyrics: ‘I know what it’s like to want to kill a man and plot on his life, for pissing all over my pride, right in front of my wife. Stalk him for 11 nights, dark clothes and a knife, ready to seal what he started, surgical steel on his carotid.
To be in the middle of gunshots firing, hearing police sirens approaching the scene quick. Running up beside a vacant basement, dim lit, heart racing, checking my frame to see if I’ve been hit.
To see a man get his head blown, all off, point blank, rear entry shotgun, sawed off. He never saw it coming, guards down, he got caught off. Sleep until the city came to have his corpse, hauled off.
To walk the alleys of the shadow of death, evil spirits all around me, trying to gather my breath. Demons walking in the flesh, steady plotting my death, staying patient, waiting for me, somebody was praying for me?’
No weapon formed against me shall prosper…
God gave me a word for Seein a couple years ago, that still holds true today. Romans 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.
