Growing up in the streets permeated with gang and drug culture wasn’t particularly an easy ride for one Cashflowbj, who survived with just the hope of making it off the streets. With a jungle-like unspoken theme of survival for the fittest, Cashflowbj found himself backed up in a tight corner without so many choices to go by or even the slightest glaring opportunity to grab. To people like Cashflowbj trying to survive a day at a time, you could only dream so far.
His story is one of unwavering resilience, a story that saw him follow his musical and entrepreneurial passions, and though it has not been particularly a walk in the park, he is somewhere, and he can look back with pride and acknowledge what he never thought possible as a young man trapped in the streets with nothing to look forward to!
“Dear Lord” looks back at that trapped life—the life of the streets, where you either end up dead or in jail. That life where your whole family is looking up to you and you have nothing to offer There is pain in all the struggle and confusion, backed by the hope for a great foreseeable future and a grateful heart for making it this far!
Borrowing from his own personal experience, where his mom had just beaten cancer and he was struggling to make ends meet with nothing to go for in the streets, you can feel the desperation in his voice as he echoes what so many young folks go through trying to make a way where there is none.
With masterful flows and rhymes delivered with a wise perspective and driven home with that memorable chorus, “Dear Lord” is a must-have record to keep you pushing even through the ridiculously difficult times.
For now, Cashflowbj is just taking one day at a time, doing what he does best, and inspiring a whole lot of generations behind him that it is indeed possible to dream big no matter where you’re from…God bless his soul for that!
