"I have a very powerful sense of place,
but I have a very powerful sense of being a migrant,
so it's both. It seems like I'm always leaving my home.
That's part of the formula. I love the Dominican Republic.
I go back all the time. I love New Jersey. Go back all the time."
INNER CITY STORIES
Life is like a puzzle,
Man, I hate to see my momma struggle
Yet it’s from there I got my hustle.
So while other people waste their time,
I've been on my grind,
Had to get rid of the nickels and dimes,
So we can all shine.
I left my people back home,
Moving to this town,
I felt so alone,
But I gotta stay strong.
Because patience is the key now,
I gotta go along
Like Lil Snoop would freestyle.
But God did all this for a reason, for my own good.
Now I'm here teasing so they know it's all good.
See, I would open my circle and let the breeze in,
But people keep changing, just like the seasons.
