Cities that raise She
cities that raise the transients, and nomads.
Real Los Angeles breed – every city She breathes
see you in Malibu or Long Beach
Drive to know the cities disparities. I live, I see.
racism, colorism, sexism, social class, from the cities that raise me, She.
only a couple cities in She’s team. I rep the cities that raised She with love.
Shout out Inglewood, Carson, Culver City, Los Angeles, Pasadena, and a couple other in between.
Transient because I’m in between.
Real Los Angeles breed – every city She breathes
see you in LA Malibu or Long Beach
drive.
