The song finds the ‘godMC’ taking a swipe at colleague rappers who feel validated by awards scheme, and not the content they put out.
“E be awards we go chop do they feed men? Do they pay tuition and school fees? Like a polite slave master, nigga please Stay woke they sell hope it’s a hoax.” raps M. Dot.
The Rvdical The Kid-mastered work emphasizes M. Dot ‘s trajectory of quality over quantity, and writing records that will last forever instead of a couple of months.
South African rapper, Riky Rick’s controversial statement at the 2017 Metro FM Music Awards is also sampled.
