GAMBIT is simply a groovy ass record that’s about being yourself, choosing to be grateful for the abundance that already exists in your life, and pushing on through adversity.

In my verse I say “I could lose it all so I don’t ever take this shit for granted, no this wasn’t random had a vision than I planned it, took the cards that I was dealt and flipped them like I’m GAMBIT, if you ain’t come up how I came up you can’t understand it…” Life sometimes deals us a hand of cards we’re not happy with but life is going to test you either way. Might as well embrace the adversity we deal with head on, find comfort within it, & push on through. I genuinely feel like my life has turned around 180 degrees from where I was back in Maryland with little to no options. I made a lot of sacrifices and never succumbed to the pressures of society I’ve dealt with (death, grief, racism, police, etc). I’m thankful I never stopped or else I wouldn’t even be here talking about this.



Do this for the family that I ride for
Same ones that I kill for imma die for
Hating niggas I don't got the time for
Nah I couldn't see them like I wore a blind fold, aye
I been swerving duckin dogging 5-0
But I feel like Kanye imma have to drive slow
Grateful with a plateful hella faded with my eyes low
They hateful that I'm able to get money switching time zones
I know, I could lose it all so I don't ever take this shit for granted
No this wasn't random had a vision then I planned it
Took the cards that I was dealt and flipped them like I'm gambit
If you aint come up how I came up you can't understand it
Melanated yet I’m hated for my damn skin
Smooth criminal I’m chill with the stealth
I ain't gotta be realest when i'm real with myself
