You can’t choose which family you’re born into, but if you’re as driven and healthy as G4SHI, you can and will change your ending. But it’s no easy task.
G4SHI puts his soul and heart on every verse, and this is no bluff. Unlike most new unsigned artists that we’ve come across in recent times, G4SHI shares stories about his personal life, family and friends in his music. Some might say, he’s emotional or it’s none of our business [as fans to know as much as we do about the entertainers we find interest in], but the best entertainers and musicians make it easy for us. Without a doubt, he’s easy to relate to and to love.
Within the lines and production of “Born Broke” created by Success Music which sounds like it borrows from Geto Boys’ “My Minds Playing Tricks On Me”, you’ll learn that G4SHI is an honest and determined young man, whose promised to succeed how he may. He even goes as far to say that, cooking [like Walter White or some other glorified good-guy-turned-drug-dealer] would have been an easy option, if his verses weren’t so tight.
Though, I enjoy his last verse which shares his reaction to being on Hot97 for the first time and being mentioned by the legendary Hip-Hop icon Busta Rhymes on MTV’s Rap Fix, here are some other lines that stuck out most:
- Cause I aint never have shit
Last year, bagging bitches in my dad’s whip
I shed a tear when I see him get his ass kicked
By his boss
Cause he was late, stuck in that traffic
This world is plastic
Love will get you sad quick
Friends will get you mad quick
Alone making this classic
Mama, dont pick up the phone cause
Family talking mad shit
Wishing me luck but hoping shit dont work out
Like a fat bitch
With no budget, I’ma do it big
I don’t sleep
I take long blinks.
