Riff: The Purist feat. Tree – “Never Heard of That”

Oct 24, 2013

And niggas don’t be listenin’/But I think I’m the greatest/Ain’t no hesitation, waitin’, stallin’ not procrastinatin’/Where I’m going?/Everywhere

from Never Heard of That lyrics by The Purist feat. Tree

Moving forward relentlessly like Frazier did Ali in the “Fight of the Century,” Tree reiterates just how tireless his work ethic is – a characteristic of his hometown Chicago. It separates him from other lyricists, and directs him to one logical conclusion: to take his operation global; [LISTEN].
