about

It's mothers day, and my mate asked me if we could make a song. I was soooo down because it was a sick idea. So we got writing and recording, it was one of Gunsan's first time's on the mic and he did well, put a lot of effort and emotion in. You'll be hearing more from him soon and you'll get to see how he develops over the next few years!

lyrics

(Chorus)

For 9 months you held me,
Didn’t let go for my well being.
I know that you would
But you can’t always help me.
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.
I said,
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.

(Gunsan Verse)

I miss you a lot
When I speak about you I shed a lot
I know you miss me like I went to mars
Breakdowns like a car we got similar scars

Through these emotions your voices keep getting clearer
Phone calls, close on us
Distance plays the factor, it ain’t tearing us apart
We’re all the same creation, we feel these emotions in our heart

Missing rhymes like the times apart
Tallying up my chart, all those opportunities I ripped apart
Life’s messing with our patiences, the highs and the lows
Leaving home for that one shot, distance away I sacrifice

Not a clue what to say
Got my hands to pray
All these prices I pay
The demons I don’t slay

Hardworking, 6 to 7 days every week dispute the conditions
Family comes first, family matters, everdays the same like Mother’s Day
Breaks my heart that I got nothing to show but I can speak my appreciation
She never sits still, where there’s a will there’s a way

Sober minded, concrete confinement
Numbers painted, money excitement
Writers block, never gonna stop
Holding my pen to the pain I ventilate

I don’t wana let it rain
I don’t wana make it rain
I don’t want to be the rain
Rain rain rain go away I want those sunny days

Stubbed toes, ketchup on clothes
That’s life for you, it knows
But they really know, they read you like a book
You’re still part of her, take your time and look

For me she’s the sun despite the guns
4 7 mind levelled but take 2 out
I come with my arms out
Beating heart, burning passion don’t contest with her

(Chorus)

For 9 months you held me,
Didn’t let go for my well being.
I know that you would
But you can’t always help me.
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.
I said,
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.

(Nate Verse 2 Pt. 1)

This song goes out to my mum,
I never thought that I could make you proud this young.
You blew away the clouds up front
Gave life to my dreams
You were fan number one.
Remained a fan when my plan was undone.
You had a plan
When a plan wouldn’t come.
Always said I’m your sun
Like the one in the sky
I’m a con ‘cause,
I don’t shine as bright.
But I will shine it’s a matter of time,
Always made me feel like I matter:
NOpther moment could do better
I was searching for the latter
But,
Love from my family was something I couldn’t fathom.
You have sacrificed so much to make me happy,
Sacrificed your nose to change my nappy.
Why are you crying when you really should be laughing?
For you mum I will really try my hardest
I will always run the fastest.
I thank you for your love
Because it gave me the advantage in this life,
You taught me that we all just need to love instead of fight
And you were right.
You really always right,
With you to inspire me
No wonder I can write
I could write all day and through the night.
You’re the best teacher for those kids,
I wouldn’t lie.
I’ll teach people too,
I’ll teach them how to love
that’s what I’ll do
That’s thanks to you,
Mum that’s thanks to you.

(Bridge)

(Nate Verse 2 Pt. 2)

Mum,
I’m sorry that I had to go,
Mum,
I’m sorry that I had to grow
But do not stretch your heart too much
‘Cause you will see me back at home.
But you won’t see me slacking though.
You gave me boxes full of knowledge
Now I’m packing those.
Mum,
You’ve helped me reach mine,
So now you should give your dreams a little more time.

(Chorus)

For 9 months you held me,
Didn’t let go for my well being.
I know that you would
But you can’t always help me.
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.
I said,
Now it’s my turn I gotta’ stop being selfish.

about

Nate's Tapes London, UK

My dreams and ambitions have led me here, aged 20, I'm now looking to jump start my music career.
Rap is more than a craft or a job to me. It brings my emotions to life and I feel myself live through it. I hope I can convey this in my songs.
I'm always looking for ways to improve, increasing the possible outcomes of my work tenfold.
My feet are, and always will be firmly planted on the ground.
