Track Name: Go To The Point (main)
Don't push me, cuz I'm close to the Edge like Bono,
And if it's U2, then follow, as we roll through Frog Hollow, on my way to taco Pete for a combo,
East Point, smoke some dank, that's the motto, sip when I whip, so make sure that the tops closed, I swear I could wear a blindfold, take the side roads and still dodge the potholes
But a lot of shit seems less significant,
Ever since I got my mom's death certificate,
House on the market, but the plan was renting it,
It made a lot of business sense, and I could visit it
But it's at the point where I can't even live in it,
And staying here would outweigh the benefit
it's where I said bye to my innocence, I reminisce floating on the 166
But nowadays I'm barely seen, like I cut class and dashed to Dairy Queen, hop the fence, might rip your favorite pair of jeans, then lie to your moms to get her to repair the seam,
But I put childish things behind me, and nowadays ain't no telling where you'll find me, Father Time don't rewind, but still reminds me of all the classics from the 90s, when I GO



It go S5 on the red line
Stay coming up like a deadline
They wonder how we keep making headlines,
We don't even rest when it's bedtime,
S5 on the red line
Stay coming up like a deadline
Looks like now is the best time, for me to rep mine

20 years in the point, you can do the math, Atlanta's metropolitan but this is Stewart ave, the old heads used to tell me time is moving fast, it makes sense depending on the way you view the past
The civil rights fight turned into white flight,
And on the real you can still feel the Zeitgeist
My city got a reputation that ain't quite right, exaggerated claims to keep you feeling fright like,
I heard that we're the most dangerous, I don't believe it, fuck a website, you should come here and see it,
Don't get the vision skewed trying to get some clicks and views, that shit is rude, y'all just keeping niggas in the news
Crime stats don't match these lilacs, this America, anywhere you can lie flat, don't deny that, then gentrify that, and get mad when you see that I'm back cuz you know I gotta GO
