Video: Uptown XO - Flowers

Courtesy Mello Music Group.

Uptown XO continues to offer raw emotive rhymes that open windows to his world. The cold, gun toting exterior often belies the humanity behind it all. XO offers a story not unlike many with scarface dreams born of section 8, but fresh in its minutia the way only truth can be. The disection of this textured story's cycle from evictions as a youth to the echos from the fridge; from the sales of kush in orange bubbles, to the understanding of how it employs the lawyers, the judges, the DA, and the jail workers; - all poignantly wrapped in the phrase "damn, ni&&as just didn't want to flip burgers." Earnest reflection over ill production. The sometimes morbid take on life culminates with the mantra "I got mouths to feed till they put flowers on me."
