Riff: Lil Skies – “Strictly Business”

Jan 16, 2018

Wanna make it with the people that was there from the start/I don’t need no new people, they gon’ tear me apart/You can’t shine with me now, you left me stuck in the dark/Strictly business nowadays, I got no time for your heart

from Strictly Business lyrics by Lil Skies

A song dedicated to those who stuck by him and stayed true and the others who jumped ship early and are now looking to make their way back into his good graces. Being stuck in the middle is adding unnecessary stress, but he knows that he has to be careful now that he has fame and fortune on his side. Like EPMD said it’s strictly business, and he needs to keep it that way if he wants to survive.
