Even if you're not familiar with the Anaheim emcee's boisterous brand of boom bap--long gestating under the umbrella of OC collective Technicali sound--any hip-hop head knows that the virtues of being a starving rapper means there's always a new story of strife to splatter over a beat.

The song's four-and-a-half minutes (produced by LDontheCut) is a crash course in true manhood.
Papa, where you goin'? You're always gone, always working hard, always on your job/ He says "Son, there's no time for sleeping/ Life is unfair and the pay isn't decent/ Someone's gotta pay the bills, he works weekends / Over time grind and he sinks his teeth in.
