Cousin Stizz - Where I Came From

Cousin Stizz is just two days away from releasing his new album, MONDA. The Boston native made a name for himself last year, off the strength of his debut project Suffolk County (which if you never heard, you can download here), and it sounds like he's picking up right where he left off with this dope new leak/visual "Where I Came From."

 

The title says it all-- if you're wondering where Stizz came from or how he grew up, this video should do the trick, from drug deals to robbery. The song is just as dope as the visual component, with haunting production from Tedd Boyd to pair with Stizz's revealing bars.

 

Be on the look out for MONDA to impact July 14th. 

 

Quotable Lyrics:

Nothing on nothing I came from

Problems on problems, I ain't run

"Because we all kould use some good ass wings in times like these," Smino wrote of the track. "Wings what you get when you decide to rise above ya situations... how i felt the whole time writing this song."
