Riff: Cody ChesnuTT – “That’s Still Mama”

Nov 14, 2012

Only reason I make this song because I love ya/Only reason I take the time cause I don’t wanna bury ya

from That's Still Mama lyrics by Cody ChesnuTT

Cody ChesnuTT loves god, and his mom. His mom loves god too, and loves that Cody loves god. Here Cody pays respects to that relationship, while at the same time drilling into young punks who seem to get off on disrespecting their mothers. Cody’s operating on a different ethos here. Sinners beware.
