    D.R.I.L.Y. (Arthur Ashe Remix)

    [Chorus]
    This is more than just media information
    More than a city in a nation
    More like a nation within a city
    This is hip-hop, I brought my city with me
    Dear Richmond, I love you
    Yup
    Dear Richmond, I love you
    Yup (Yo), yup (Uh)

    [Verse 1]
    Richmond, here's my love letter
    You know how much I love letters
    That's why I put your name on them sweaters
    I wanted them to rep you how I rep you
    'Cause how can they neglect you?
    Any out-of-towners better respect you
    Don't talk about my city 'cause you ain't walk the strippy
    On Main Street before Gaston made it all slippery
    That flood changed everything, look at how we bounced back
    Caution at an all-time high, we brought the sound back
    The art back, the heart back, the history, the hardbacks
    Now being rewritten starting with them monuments
    They used to have us down bottom, down bottom
    But nowadays the future don't look so downtrodden
    Full of youth and exuberance, working on some unison
    Still a lot of issues, too many hot pistols
    Too many shitty cops and pissy politics
    But still a lot of love with the people, though
    How could we not acknowledge it?

    [Chorus]
    This is more than just media information
    More than a city in a nation
    More like a nation within a city
    This is hip-hop, I brought my city with me
    Dear Richmond, I love you
    Yup
    Dear Richmond, I love you
    Yup (Yo), yup

    [Verse 2]
    They say home is where the hate is
    But if you look at my career, I changed that narrative
    I done buried both my parents here
    I done lost hella friends here
    I used to wanna run away and never reappear
    'Til I discovered everything that I was seeking here
    From that muddy ass James, now it's crystal clear
    Some people gave me flak 'cause I was born out West
    I was taught that if you mean it say it with your chest
    My ascension filled with tension, took the wins and stress
    Save the profit and we reinvest
    Conversations who's the best, heard my name dropped
    I survived more levels then the game stopped
    It's hard to make it out this mid-sized market
    But marketing art can make you a big-sized target
    Gentrification, swimming upstream, found ventilation
    Learned not to give fair warning, just detonation
    We're found on the path traveled, not destination
    Gifts opened every day, present's a celebration
    This for Richmond

    [Outro]
    This is more than just media information
    More than a city in a nation
    More like a nation within a city
    This is hip-hop, I brought my city with me
    Dear Richmond, I love you
