2.0 is extremely community focused and wanted to create something to bring attention to the less glamorous responsibilities that come with having influence. Where some see a waste of time and a hinderance to his career, he sees spending time in prisons, shelters, & schools as a way make an impact music alone never could. This is his heart...motivation. Originally released early in 2020 right around the time of the pandemic hitting, he decided the concept was important enough to represent with a more trap feel to drive the point a little deeper.

Lyrics

[intro]
Ay man, say man
Its ya boi 2.0
You know I had to run it back on some ratchet
I dont think yall heard me the first time
Big God told me to show love, & I felt like
Charity starts at home, Imma do it for my city first

[verse 1]
...Came from the West side of 20, city of goays & I'm one of them Billys
I was taught bless up the place where u grow, so that's Washington Park down to Washington Road
I got some kids looking up in 4 Season, I got some folk on the street in the cold
I gotta make & they gotta see it, do this for all my folk waiting on parole
Young Martin Luther, no dream I got vision run up a bag & then get me a sprinter
...U buy the bar well I'm at Motel 6, gimme a floor get my folk off the street
I know what it's like having nowhere to stay
I know what it's like, folk NOT feeling your pain
I know when pain teach a lesson it sticks
& i know that ain't no avoiding the rain
I know that God NEVER MAKES A mistake
I know u gotta take care where u stay that's why its yours at the end of the day & I'm from the South, west & east of the A
Memorial dr. Down to southwest decatur, down to old Nat, what it do Castle gate Washington park but the road is my favorite, my city forever & this is my statement....

[hook]
I just wanna do good for my city
Run up a bag & take care of my people.....these folk want the sauce & my city the kitchen

I just wanna do good for my city
Showed me the struggle & how to go get it....Lord I'm just praying, I hope that you hear me

I just wanna do good for my city
Run up a bag & take care of my people.....these folk want the sauce & my city the kitchen
(East side, West side, South side, Nawf side, talmbout)
I just wanna do good for my city
Showed me the struggle & how to go get it....Lord I'm just praying, I know that you hear me
(East side, West side, South side, Nawf side, talmbout)

[verse 2]
Whole lotta big plays in my city
Folk gettin big paid in my city
I was down big sad in my city
Now I'm Finna get the big bag in my city
I was on the east side, on my first job, rode the 34 in my city
Thats Gresham rd, met my first plug, it's alotta them in my city

But then I found God, I mean found me, let the plug go, for I caught a charge
Start water walking, still big dripping, but my new vision, got me seeing different
Like the other night, west side, 2am, choppas singing like the opera
Nights later, on the east, young patnas heard the same thing, that's a problem bruh
(Yeah) now I get active, community kind
...I'm a janitor, keys in my lines
& they be heavy a ki every time
Big prayers round my city like 285
(RISE UP )
Like a Phoenix not a Falcon
Need change now like a time zone
Talking big change, like dollars & 5s not quarters & dimes yuh (talmbout)

[hook]
I just wanna do good for my city
Run up a bag & take care of my people.....these folk want the sauce & my city the kitchen

I just wanna do good for my city
Showed me the struggle & how to go get it....Lord I'm just praying, I hope that you hear me

I just wanna do good for my city
Run up a bag & take care of my people.....these folk want the sauce & my city the kitchen
(East side, West side, South side, Nawf side, talmbout)
I just wanna do good for my city
Showed me the struggle & how to go get it....Lord I'm just praying, I know that you hear me
(East side, West side, South side, Nawf side, talmbout)
