about

“Always was a collaboration between producer White Jamal, Rapper Levi Lindley and myself. Levi and I had grown up together and used to make low-key tracks in high school. White Jamal (Erik Mikulak) was my older brother's roommate in college and was constantly making fire beats with innovative sampling. When the three of us got together we stayed up all night layering the samples with heavy 808’s and lo-phi trap sounds. It all came together to create a blend of hip-hop and indie-pop. This track is dedicated to MK.”

lyrics

At 17 I fell deep for MK
It was on Venice beach back in LA
I remember her stare
I could feel it in the air
I remember her hairspray

I knew how to make you feel grounded
Held your hand when we road space mountain
If out of the blue you wanna see it all through girl…

I’ll be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie
Who will be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie

So please tell me how you’re feeling right now
Cause I can tell by how you lookin
And I’m all in my feelings right now
But that’s just cause I’m sippin 2X

Winter's come around, It’s gettin colder
I heard that you older, I put a nice jacket right around your shoulders
Took you dinner, I’m stressed out, boulder on my back but I ain’t really trippin
You could probably catch me in the kitchen I ain’t wippin
But I could if I did I’d probably be so great
Got other things goin like spittin on this tape
But back to the date
I think we went to Uchi yeah that food was fucking great
I met her in LA
I flew her down Austin now I see her everyday
She’s 45 but she looks like 20
This my truck lil mamma ain’t a rentie
She said never call me that cause I’m older
I told ya I don’t care about your age I got paid

I’ll be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie
Who will be here always, be here always
Girl you know me, I’m just your homie

And I’m always chillin and I know it’s not right
I hope you don’t got plans late at night
I wanna be your secret, keep me a secret
Girl can you and I could make an agreement

So please tell me how you’re feeling right now
Cause I can tell by how you lookin
And I’m all in my feelings right now
But that’s just cause I’m sippin 2X
