Marcus J: A song about talented people in need of some self-love, instead of the love they seek. The lack of attention from others throws them into unflattering social media melt downs. They are so much better than that, and they don’t even realize it. It’s sad.

C-Doc: I've been in touch with Phon-X (of Regenerated Headpiece fame) since the early days of SLAMjamz (we were label mates) and I ended up doing a couple of remixes for him many years ago. He returned the favor by remixing our song "Erykah & Jean" back in 2014. He gave me shit for not putting his remix on the remix album (it's on the maxi-single) and he sent me some new beats on the condition that whatever we chose would actually be on the album this time. Well, Phon, done and done.


C-Doc: Those we know know not what they do- when they're
Trapped with delusions inside a dark room- with
Ego's stroked so hard they burn bridges- and
Facebook rants turn men to little bitches
Air out your grievances and void your maturity
Sitting in the middle of fame and obscurity
Desperately trying to cling to the former- it's
Torture... To get relegated to the corner- with
Every unaccountable word and you've dug
Deep into a hole swept under the rug- and through the
Mud... How you comin back from that? And this is
HipHop... You should get a smack for that
Truth is one but talkin shit not the same man
Who you blame fam, when you messin up the game plan?
Lost your credibility and where does it lead? Imma
Break you off a band aid you're starting to bleed...

Chorus: If it's what you think versus what you deserve- in
So many words and look now if it should occur- that
It is absurd and what we all heard we see- just
Another sucka open up bleeding envy

Marcus J: You want to be more shiny but not reflective
Sometimes you’re too close and you lose perspective
Want love from strangers damn it you deserve it
These are the dangers of fame vision blurred it
Like a drug gotta have love to abuse it
But love’s gonna getcha and want’ins how you lose it
Jealous of everything somebody else has got
Forgetting what you have cause man you’ve got a lot
But what you got ain’t fill’in holes in your soul
So you try to fill’em with material goals
But material things ain’t truly what you’re missing
Your heart’s tell’in you this is true but do you listen
Lash out at everyone cause life ain’t fair
A feeble attempt to uncover those that care
Lose a few who truly do look up to you
Time to change your dressings son you bleedin through
