“Look at my life baby, I’m an 80s man rippin it”

The Groove Just Took Me In

Hi-Tek will do that to you. One of my favorites for sure. This one is an old gem that always have me grooving. It has that Foreign Exchange feel.

The common theme through all verses seemed to be spreading love, hanging with family and gettting revenge.
