In another authentic Chicago sound and visual from Dat Bizness, he brings an upbeat and positive perspective on his background, and how he has persevered through it. “Mama gave me $10 bills, told me go and grab Sandra tacos. First he was there and then he was gone, so I’m asking mom where my pops go.” FROM THE STREETS is only two minutes long with two verses and two hooks. Dat Bizness is surprisingly able to fit a large amount of story telling in this short song. It must be listened through multiple times over again in order to catch everything because of the pacing, its replay value, and the hook is one you can dance and vibe out to.
“I am from the streets, brothers carry heat. Watch out for police, hustle hard gotta eat. We just trying to live take care of our kids, born in the system it is what it is,” the hook rapped by Dat Bizness would have an audience up off of their feat and having fun. This song is appealing for its sophistication, with the lines detailing Dat Bizness’ background and lifestyle, coupled with the jazzy, saxophone melody, boom bap instrumental. The song is fast paced and makes a listener think, while also moving them to the rhythm. It is not easy to combine those aspects (fun and complexity) in music, and successfully doing so is absolutely worthy of praise.
Dat Bizness ends the song reminding listeners where he is from. “8806 South Burley street I grew up in the new buildings damn!” He is no stranger to the neighborhoods that shaped the talent and phenom known as Dat Bizness.
