    General CommentFor me this is the worst song on the Testify album. Chorus is fine and the part where P.O.D. singer is rapping is acceptable but the first part is just awful and ruins the whole song. I usually skip past this track while listening to the CD.

    General CommentAre you kidding? This is a great song. It's about growing up in tough times/places but always looking up.

    When Sonny says:

    "I break bread with hustlers, conversate with kings
    Conquer kingdoms with warriors and preach to the fiends
    Partake communion with dealers, love the least of these"

    He is trying to be like Christ by reaching out to people who have gone down the wrong path and gotten mixed up by life's circumstances.

    Then he says "But I choose to use this mic to push these platinum plaques" meaning he wants to spread a message of hope beyond the literal ghetto and on to the ghetto of the world we live in.

    PS- Boo-Ya Tribe is a rap group from LA
