1997 (song)

Earlier this week I emailed this track to TeamDanami. 1997 is a freestyle verse about the inception of my pursuit to rap. All names, streets, and details in this song are accurate. It was fun traveling back in my memory bank tracing the steps of my youth. To avoid waiting for new music, join TeamDanami to be the first to hear it, send directly to your email from me.

LYRICS
Back in ’97 when I first started rapping
Once was a dream, can’t believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Well I guess I tell you how it happened/

I was living off of Chalmers Eastside of the D
We stayed on Promenade, just my sister, mom, and me/
My third grade year in St. Julianna Academy
Then our funds got low went to the school down street/

Gooddale Elementary, my teacher was Ms. Wilson
Little old white lady teaching all them children/
In that class I meet Marcellus, but we called him Mark
He would be my very first homie from the start/

We hit it off, all the time we would talk
Discovered he stayed not too far if I walk/
Just around the corner so we hung-out regularly
His moms knew my moms, we morphed into a family/

You know how it go, now we’re both cousins
In school frontin, had all the girls buzzin/
His older cousin Bryon introduced us to spitting
Sat us down to write our raps in their grandmother kitchen/

Now I’m ripping, little boy on a mission
Bumping DMX watching Dragon Ball Z only wishing/
To do my thang, on a stage with a long chain
This around time I got my first rap name/

Back in ’97 when I first started rapping
Once a dream, can’t believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Once was a dream, can’t believed it happen/

Back in ’97 when I first started rapping
Once was a dream, can’t believed that it happen/
Back in Back in 1997 when I started rapping
Now you know how it happened/
