Biography

Born in Bull Bay Jamaica, I moved to foreign as an infant child. Facing the constant pressure of being raised by strict traditional Jamaican parents in very loose and limitless Canadian surroundings, I was lucky enough to have the constant support of my siblings. Growing up close with my three brothers, sister and cousins we often shared different versions of the same dreams. Love and persevererance were two things that were embedded within me making me head strong and driven.... and music is my vehicle.

As Good As It Gets

(Intro)

Hey Ya... aaaaaa....
Hey Ya.... ey yo...
Hey Ya.... aaaaaa...
Hey Ya... ey yo.. ey yo.. ey yo....

..

Rent Cost money!
Food Cost money!
Clothes Cost money!
Bills Cost money!

Wake up every morning fucked up, it aint funny.
If you try to touch my scrilla I'll make your nose runny!

Grant me three wishes and it's Cheddah, Cash, Flow.
Every other wish will be granted by that dough,
So, I gotta bust my ass to show
off a little something for these Van City hoes. (you know)

Grab my back-pack, slacks and my white beater.
Pack the tupper-wear, pasta and a one litre.
Walk the bridge 30 min from where I live,
On the site all day... tell me brotha when will it give yo??!

Tell me brotha when will it show dough?
Just a little something to break me off of this slow dough...
And if you don't know,
Now you know!

(Chorus)

Is this as good as it gets?
I don't wanna live with regrets.
You try to tell me things will get better so tell me brotha,
Why haven't I seen anything yet?

Is this as good as it gets?
I don't wanna live with regrets.
She tells me she forgives me and yet
There ain't a day she'll ever let me forget!
She'll never let me forget!

..

I'm only human and it ain't an excuse,
But a Reason why I need to take my head out this noose.
Playing 'Hang Man' every time I make a mistake
I beat myself up, now tell me brotha, can you relate?

Here I am fucked up alone crying again
I wipe my tears, dry my nose, I'm trying again
and if I start rising again...
That's when I hear my so called friends start lying again!

It's a pitty in a city full of beauty and rain
Could have so many people acting so preculiar and strange
Let me take this moment to re-arrange
Our negative thinking so that we can have more beautiful days.

Cause I love you from your dome to your cuticle babe
and I love you brotha man so be true to your name
and walk good in all them kicks that you wear,
and if you trip up, be sure to get up and do it again! Yup!

(Chorus)

Is this as good as it gets?
I don't wanna live with regrets.
You try to tell me things will get better so tell me brotha,
Why haven't I seen anything yet?

Is this as good as it gets?
I don't wanna live with regrets.
She tells me she forgives me and yet
There ain't a day she'll ever let me forget!
She'll never let me forget!

(Outro)

Hey Yo...
Hey Yo...
Hey Yo...
Hey Yo eewoh...

(repeat)
