GETAWAY
Yo
Put on my work clothes
Late leaving out
Rush hour for an hour started feakin out
Manager callin me tryin to stress his authority
Work tasks the staff does the majority
Horribly they’re extortin me
Want the American pie
But they can’t afford a piece hungry I hit the store to eat
Thirty minute break
And two fifteen’s
A protein shake
burger with extra cheese
How much can I take
I have big dreams I can no longer fake
Living beyond my means
That means I need change
To make my dollars stack
the years increase my age I can’t get it back
Matter of fact I’m bout to start tearing down displays
Flip off the boss and then mush him right in the face
Tell him that I quit
demand he send my pay
Shoutout the homies tell them that I gotta getaway

All this stress just won’t go away
My boss keep trippin I been working all day
The weekends here I just got paid
A full tank of gas and I wanna getaway
Getaway Get Get Getaway (3x)

Collectors on my phone
Wanna be left alone
Another Friday watchin Friday think I'll stay at home
Right when I’m in my zone
I get a text b
From this girl that I met so sexy
She said what up AK think bout you a lot
It’s Friday night me and my home girls hittin the spot
I’m like let’s do it then
But then Im blue again
I got a letter from unemployment its soon to end
I gotta pay these bills
I gotta pay my rent
I really wanna chill but if my money’s spent
I can’t eat can’t sleep can’t function right
How to resolve all these problems got me up at night
Today’s a new day
And my future’s bright
Thinkin of new ways to get my money tight
That’s when my man called
and said my bad dog
Forgot to pay you back when can I hand this cash off

All this stress just won’t go away
My boss keep trippin I been working all day
The weekends here I just got paid
A full tank of gas and I wanna getaway
Getaway Get Get Getaway (3x)

about

AKIR New York, New York

Akir’s trademark raspy flow, his intricate, nonstop rhyme patterns, and his ear for soulful, dramatic beats, many of them self-produced. “Focus,” isn’t just some cool catchphrase—it’s a rallying cry for him, his music, and his listeners. “Focus was made to reintroduce myself to the world. A new sound, a new clarity, a new focus,” ... more
