True To This

Produced by Blunted Beatz

Written by Kitch

Verse 1

Yo, I'm such a perfectionist

But you think I'm directionless

Like I haven't noticed this

And still people call me out on my work rate

Shit, I was critiquing my flow on my birthday

I've had too many sleepless nights

Shut your mouth, you cant see my fights

It’s like I got a secret life

You don’t know that I’ve recorded songs in the studio

That will never be released, 'cause I feel like I've got more to show

'Cause I ain't tryna regret shit like I did with mountains

Ever since I released that song last year I’ve been doubting

Locked myself in my room like I've been grounded

Forcing myself to work on the way that I'm sounding

Do you know how it feels to work on dreams so hard?

But all I'm hearing is Ritchie in rap you'll never go far

Just stop, relax on the sofa

What you think ima agree and say definitely?

Like you know what’s best for me

You can't write my fucking destiny

Chorus

 

What hip hop is now I don’t think I’m use to it

I’m going mental like some sorta lunatic

'Cause it's like no one even cares about who can spit

But I swear man, i’m staying true to this

Verse 2

 

Forget your rap, i’ll spit with my sound

This ain't mountains, I got multi syllable rhymes now

It's time to pipe down or ima make you wipe out

'Cause I'm an artist you don't wanna start with

Even though you was getting paid at shows performing in front of crowds

I was broke at home listening to my parents rowls

Inspired by legends from QBC, the D, CPT

And here’s me

Tryna make it out of E17

I’m never gonna settle for just good enough

If I think it’s shit, I always will if I could adjust

'Cause I don't wanna be seen no more as a laughing stock

I wanna be known for someone who rapping their fucking arse off

But it’s hard when people tell me rap is a dead waste of time

'Cause that still plays in this headspace of mine

But I don’t care about anything else

'Cause if it wasn't for rap I'd still be stuck on a shelf

And maybe that's why

Chorus

What hip hop is now I don't think I’m use to it

I’m going mental like some sorta lunatic

'Cause it's like no one even cares about who can spit

But I swear man, I’m staying true to this

Verse 3

To all you rappers I'm not gonna let loose

The neck noose

Until I vent truth

And you're dead proof

The lack of righteousness

Makes me wanna fight this mess

And enlighten us

Into a full sense of security

Where the  bullshit  loses the

Audience bruises deep

Some rappers are just a comedy sight

I only spit what I think is honestly tight

If being real is wrong I don't wanna be right

Jealous rappers giving me the evil eye

Like his too good, he needs to die

When really you just don't appear to my

Skill set I've required

Wills that I've desired

Till fact I've retired

'Cause when I decide It's my time to thrive

I don't wanna be idolise but recognise that I've arrived

'Cause all I want out of rap is to be respected

I don’t care about seeing money collected

I just wanna be bloody accepted

Chorus

What hip hop is now I don't think I’m use to it

I’m going mental like some sorta lunatic

'Cause it's like no one even cares about who can spit

But I swear man, I’m staying true to this

About 'True To This'

In 'True To This', Kitch raps about how he feels the rap game has changed and there are only a few artists who are sticking to the genre's true colours.

Kitch talks about how he and other people doubted him, but this has only pushed him further.

By using complex rhyme schemes to add emphasise that lyricism doesn't hold importance anymore, Kitch expresses his feeling about this new era of rappers. The intro is taken from the Gangstarr track 'Peace of Mind'. Kitch used this sample because
