Thizzler: Where are you from? How was your upbringing?
Affiliat3d: I wrote batter up in jail. I got the beat from a nigga names saviii 3rd from baby insane in song beach. I was in prison with him and when he got out he took off running. I respected what he had goin on and in some way it was a inspiration. He got out and got signed to cash money . Fresh out the pin you know . I got on the same beat and put my own spin on it and referenced my life and shit I was goin thru. It’s a PSA of where I stand and what I’m on you know?
Affiliat3d: It’s a different flow. Like I said saviii 3rd got the original song I just put my own spin on there . And like I said it’s a statement so this song getting across a whole mother message. It’s to everybody ain’t nobody expect from what I was sayin in that song.
T: Is it part of a project? If so, can you tell me more about that?
Affiliat3d: Na this was more of just lyrical exercise. This not even my beat I was just having fun with that fr. I fasho got a couple projects in the works.
