Welcome to the Trench

Intro:
Welcome to the Trench
You know, let me give you a step into my world
My city has a few names, but now we call it the trench
I know youíre wondering why we call it that
But give me a moment to explain that
Itís a meaningful story Iím about to tell
So bare with me me, yeah

Verse:
Let me tell a story, about a small city called the Grip
They used to call it that, but now they now they call it the trench
A metaphor to describe the city as a deep, muddy old ditch
Itís extremely hard to get out of, once you trip and fall right in

From the backroads of the Northside, to the front line of the Southside
Itís some of us with that Griffin pride, lion-hearted, ainít backing down
Mason jars with iced tea, high-rollers with gold teeth
Home of the Bears and Jaguars, this the city that molded me

Thereís some thatís down here, who donít want none to flourish
Dick riders, groupies, and naysayers hate to see you growing
Other camps they envy me, because they know I got gumption
One thing about underdogs, no one never sees us coming

Long way from the glory days, now memories are †just replays
The trench was once united, but division caused some delays
Honoring fallen angels, while reflecting on our escapades
Hot summers, spiked lemonade with bad bitches and Escalades

City filled with talent, thatís why other towns be throwing shade
Once we get the spotlight put on us I hope it never fades
Had promising talent lose their way, because they lost faith
Out here in the streets, taking risks, when they couldíve played it safe

Itís up to us to make a way, canít afford to go astray
Homies crashing out so theyíll never see the light of day
I know itís sad to say that my city can get crazy
But Iíd never turn my back to it, when the trench itself has made me

Outro:
Well you know, thatís just a part of the story
Thereís more to it, you just gotta listen
S/O to Tana GoHard for being on the project with me
Itís an honor and a blessing
S/O to Movie Malik for hosting the project
S4L shit, Movie Team with it fool
