about

These two songs are the result of a suuuuuper difficult couple of years. I went through a ton of stuff—transition, loss, bitterness, illness—and still, God's has been faithful through it all.

Track Name: Twenty Nineteen (Thass God)
In 2019, things gon’ be different
Had to fight me, self was the villain
Had to lose life so that I’d find it
Only through strife I know what life is
2019, things gon' be different
Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living
Yeah, I forgot but now I remember
The thing that made me captivated—thass God

Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God
Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God

I used to hate people who were fake as can be
Then I realized nobody’s faker than me
Busy trying to fight the evil in society
But I never took the time to fight the evil that’s inside of me
Focused on my goals I forgot about my soul
When I had to take it slow I just tried to keep on going
Oh yeah, that’ll kill you or kill the ones you love
God’ll take away the very thing you won’t give up
Where you think I was? I ain’t silent just because
Had to face my demons, I ain’t even done, I ain’t done
I got all these things that been keeping me down
I gotta believe if I’m gon’ make it out
I don’t really under stand it I just know he’s planned it
Got to trust his plan instead of trusting in this planet
Man it’s been a lot to balance still I’m barely standing
But on my way to land so in 2019

Things gon’ be different
Had to fight me, self was the villain
Had to lose life so that I’d find it
Only through strife I know what life is
2019, things gon' be different
Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living
Yeah, I forgot but now I remember
The thing that made me captivated—thass God

Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God
Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God

It’s a new year, I’m going through it but who isn’t?
I’m just trying to learn to see what God is doing in ruin
The same man who taught me to respect women
Cheated on his wife and she left, no respect in a man
All talk, all talk, homie, you were all talk
Thought you brought me here but truth is that was all God
So shocked at what you fell into
Then I saw as long as I’m faking, everybody else will too
Yeah, I see it now, you won’t be around
But God’ll keep his child, God’ll keep his child
Yeah I put my trust in my plans, that’s where I went wrong
I started listening to self, that’s where I got lost
I told myself I’d drop a song about a year ago
He had different plans—I ain’t get the m-e-m-o
Yeah, the Lord was revealing my soul needed healing
And no, I ain’t listen, but listen—in 2019

Things gon’ be different
Had to fight me, self was the villain
Had to lose life so that I’d find it
Only through strife I know what life is
2019, things gon' be different
Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living
Yeah, I forgot but now I remember
The thing that made me captivated—thass God

Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God
Thass God, thass God, thass God
Ain’t no question thass God
Track Name: All Over My Life (feat. YettiPaints)
Yeah it’s been a while but I been around
And I don’t know his plan but I know his hand’s been

All over my life, let’s see the highlights
Dated three years and she left
Got in a wreck that wrecked my passenger and that got me wrecked
I could never count my blessings
Never could get perspective
I could never see the lessons he was telling me till I bent my knees
Yeah I, I made it through
God’s on my side, that’s the truth
Live the valley to live the peak
To get the victory, you have to lose
I never would’ve made it on my own
‘Swhy I go together, not alone
I face the challenges, showcase the talented
Embrace the fam, trying to change Atlanta, oh no

Never been the type to speak my mind, no
Started rapping and it changed my life like whoa
None of this would happen if it weren’t for my God
So I’m telling y’all, he’s never failed and never will

When life gets harder and harder
And the lights get darker and darker
I can feel your gravity all over me
And I can see yes you’re undeniably

All over my life, all over my life
Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life
All over my life, all over my life
Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Never thought I could ever leave that tunnel
Never could I be nobody I thought
I really had to get out to feel the relief
I’d never feel the relief in my spot
We try to get away from pain
But life just doesn’t operate that way
I spent so many seasons treating it like it’s evil but it ain’t that way
We hate the pain so we build walls
Then we hate the way that we feel not
It’s vain to face the pain and aim to make a great escape when you will not
Tell me, can you skip autumn when it’s coming? no no
Then why you think you’re safe from suffering if you running?
I've been there before trying to escape, learning to be thrown ‘gainst the Rock of Ages
Is teaching me not to leave the grief, got to be on these knees and pause
Something’s gotta give, spring summer autumn winter
Never rush the process ever, let it run its course
Stay in the season you in ‘cause you meant to be in it, for when

Life gets harder and harder
And the lights get darker and darker
I can feel your gravity all over me
And I can see yes you’re undeniably

All over my life, all over my life
Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life
All over my life, all over my life
Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
