The rapper takes a trip down memory lane on his new song

G. Finesse brings some hard-won perspective to new song "Breakfast," recounting the push-and-pull of his upbringing ("I was raised around the pimps and pushers/Church-goers, gun-toters, life scholars and weed smokers") before breaking down his introduction to music, which he credits with giving him a needed outlet for his ambition. "Wanted to be more than a product of environment," he raps, going on to express a desire to outkick the screw-up label placed on him by teachers.

The reflective nature of Finesse's words is mirrored by the introspective beat courtesy producer Medicine Man, who works in lush, sepia-tinted soul tones here. Give the song a listen below.
