Anik drops his first solo tune since the year two fggn thousand! this is also the first song he releases that is entirely self produced, mixed and mastered, and the video too, so it's kind of a milestone. and as it's released on the new moon of the third of june, it marks the first step on a new journey of musical self sufficiency.


i was doing this ages ago
i had the flow mapped out down in a basement like in '04 with hoyx and ebow amazingly so
and back then men were like that shit is way too slow i knew it was blazing
and then we waited a mo
we waited a mo
and now that shit's all over the place i say yeh i know
you know that i spied it
people said i was ahead of my time in like '03 and me - i never denied it
i would never refute it
cos the future and me are like this you know, I've never been stupid
i've always been a wise man
always known what the truth is
i've always known about my plan
i've always known what to do with it
I've always known that from my angle everything is crystal clear
grass much greener over here
dance to a beat i alone can hear
you can ask my peeps yo i am not the type who is known to fear
learned to breathe on the open road
earned this wheel i alone can steer
and I've never been a chase a career type
all i need is right here i'm more the take it in and be here type
like right here and right now i don't feel the need to be the hype
my ego is fine
i do this cos it feels right
and i do this because i need the mic
and i need the music extremely
i didn't choose it it chose me and swallowed me up completely
and now my mind spews it undiluted like freestyle so free
it's like when i freestyle
sometimes i dream it it's unbelievable
and i've seen what fame can do
and i've seen what the game can do
and i've seen what racing can do
and i've seen what chasing can do
and i've seen what wanting your name all over the front pages can do
so if you see me out on the road like all sovereign and on top of things
like everybody i've got them
flanked by my offspring
with the vibe that i am the kind of guy for whom loss is just not an option
i suggest you watch and learn cos guys like me there's really not a lot of them
i flow slow
grow slowly and live slow
stay as rough as i've always been and i take nothing and give loads
i get a lot of love
i got a lot to spend
got a lot to give
and a lot of confidence
a whole lot of competence
breathe it until the end because i am

calmly confident
