K.A.A.N. - Growth Lyrics




Just thought I'd call to say what's up, I'm just checking in
And even though you ain't my blood, you like my closest kin
Before the money and accolades, you was my only friend
Forever grateful, you were the only one that I would ever depend on
I know I lose track of time, I know I ain't hit you back
I know you think I changed but I'm the same, that's in full effect
A phone full of missed texts, I ain't mean no disrespect
So before you tell me 'bout myself man just let me interject
It's like no one can recall when I was broke and starving
Back when I would pray for better days and bright tomorrows
I ain't no fool, I know this time we living on is borrowed
I had to be real with myself, reality can be the toughest pill to swallow uh

"Hello, we are not available now. Please leave your name and phone number after the beep. We will return your call."[*beep*]

I just been working on myself, yeah
I just been working on myself, yeah
I ain't mean to miss your call, I ain't mean to do no harm
I'm just focused on myself, damn
I been too proud to ask for help, declining mental health
I'm in the process of tryna learn to love my fucking self
If I can't do for me, then I can't do for no one else
I ain't tryna drink or smoke nigga, that's gon' make this shit worse
I just keep working on myself, damn
I just been working on myself, damn
I know I missed your text, I lost track of time, damn
But for the sake of my sanity, I'll keep working on myself
I'm just working on myself

I feel like I'm at my wits end, wonderin' when this happiness gon' kick in
All I do is work, you can't tell my life ain't no different
Dealing with frustrations, it's daily, derails my vision
This is something I can't explain, you gotta see it for yourself
This shit is sick, this is everything that I hoped it wasn't
Back when niggas had dreams and aspirations of becoming something
I coulda never imagined I would see all of the shit I seen
Blind to all the warning signs and red flags in front of me
There's no relief, on a search for peace, follow my path faithfully
I can't believe we at a dead end, how can it be?
Trials and tribulations, not meeting expectations
Looking inside and realizing you broken and vacant

"Hello, we are not available now. Please leave your name and phone number after the beep. We will return your call."[*beep*]

I just been working on myself, yeah
I just been working on myself, yeah
I ain't mean to miss your call, I ain't mean to do no harm
I'm just focused on myself, damn
I been too proud to ask for help, declining mental health
I'm in the process of tryna learn to love my fucking self
If I can't do for me, then I can't do for no one else
I ain't tryna drink or smoke nigga, that's gon' make this shit worse
I just keep working on myself, damn
I just been working on myself, damn
I know I missed your text, I lost track of time, damn
But for the sake of my sanity, I'll keep working on myself
I'm just working on myself

"Hello, we are not available now. Please leave your name and phone number after the beep. We will return your call."[*beep*]

  8. Orty MusicOnIt

    First discovered you on SoundCloud, found you on YouTube shortly after. 3 years been vibin to your plethora of music. Thank you for the inspiration you have given me. Your are an amazingly talented artist and I hope someday I can afford the budget to work with you, shit, even meet you.
    K.A.A.N. I appreciate all the vibes, all the stories you tell. Don't ever fold.

    Ricky Duckworth

    Collabs aint about cash, they about stature and respect. Money can't buy that. That should be obvious, especially to K.A.A.N fans

    Ricky Duckworth

    Listening to your stuff, you're clearly influenced by K.A.A.N massively, I'd say you're close to biting his style in some tracks. That said, your content is fairly good. You need to get a lot tighter in your double time, and try to expand your content a bit more instead of using so much filler. Some of your tracks feel rushed and the quality suffers to this. Keep it up though, you've got good flows, just need to work on your style & content, and producing the vocals to fit the track better

    Orty MusicOnIt

    Thanks yo. Really appreciate it. Also thanks for the feedback guy🤘❤️

    Ricky Duckworth

    @Orty MusicOnIt no problem mate. Would appreciate if you could return the favour - this was a one take just after writing the bars the same night, and is my first proper attempt at doiing a track. I've worked on my conviction and accentuation, as well as tightened parts up . all since this recording, but still gives you the content and flows: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e1uLUr6AtuKxUryRix4hCRNPee-xYxia/view?fbclid=IwAR31oFSaiQwNZ3ZfhOr-BWX1H0bF3K7WfQKT96x6vHAREBFgEIECwQmNlHE thanks brother

  64. ClashWithStan YT

    Keep going bro your one of the best iv been following you for years you deserve recognition! 💪

  65. 420kush Brain.Damage

    most underrated artist to ever live. You could make so much change and be the root cause of so much good. I feel like you just need to slow your art down to like you did with this track. Dont slow everything down i love your fast stuff the most im just saying if your want change like i feel you do then this is the speed you need to deliver it at cause the masses are slow in comparison you know? Do you above all this just some advice but it just saddens me to see such a legend be underground so so long... And see other people sell out in some way to hit a wave... But shit thats life... Btw your music helped me get through some tough times and i have a lot of respect for you. Im not saying your better than em but your one of very very few that could ever possibly beat him.(honestly probably not even possible) Your not there yet but someone could be. still would love to see that one day. A battle of legends.

  66. The Jagaloon

    Knowledge!!!

  67. Cringe Alert

    i'm legit spammin a load of people to react or something to do with this guy. he needs rezognition

  68. Potatoes Have 48 Chromosomes

    Honestly although the lyrics are good, I can't say the same for the beat. When the flute or recorder or whatever comes in, it feels like it throws everything off beat. Its not like its completely off, because when the phone dial part comes in, and the beat is slowed, it sounds really nice. Also a tip would be a little less reverb, makes some words blend with others. Maybe those were artistic choices but to me it makes the song sound like a lower quality than it really is, because I can hear you put in effort to the song. It really does show. But there are areas that need improvement

  69. Rain Peace

    Been a fan since 10 subscribers he is the best I hear yet

  70. Harlo Red

    K.A.A.N you deserve more recognition bro. Lyrical legend
