Download: Esso - What If It Was You
What a chillingly beautiful chorus. The perfect sample for track with this type of content. Speaking of which, in this track Esso lays out how it might feel to walk in the shoes of societies most shunned or despised (by some, at least, and celebrated by others) and offers explanations for why it is they may make the decisions they do, and asks you if you'd do any different in their situation.
And what if it was you with that felony to your name,
always in and out the system even though you wanna change,
you never gon' get that job no matter how hard you explain,
you grew up in the hood, would you right be right back pitching 'cane?
And what if you was a star, everyone know who you are,
would you make it rain in strip clubs after buying out the bar?
Or would you right those songs that could change somebody life? Or feel like if you tried they'd ignore and treat you like, your outta sight..
