"We bout that grind
Yeah we bout that grind like the costliest thing is our time
Cannot block that shine
I polish the flow till it worth every nickel and dime"


Lagos based emcee Phlow's new single "Str8 Up" switches things up by keeping it sparse and gloomy. After dropping the all female studded single "MP3" a while back, she is back to prove that she is not a one trick pony as she effortlessly rides the wave of this dark sparse trap backdrop provided by usual collaborator Teck-Zilla.
"Str8 Up" is Phlow's hustle anthem and mantra for her rise to the next level as she realizes the odds against her but her laser focused will is only tuned to one direction...which is Str8 Up!

lyrics

[Chorus]
Got no time for playing we stay on the grind--*Str8 Up*
I'm like point me where the nearest top is *Str8 Up*
Call me if you talking ego *Str8 Up*
*make money make money money money*
Stop me on my way and ask me where I'm headed *Str8 Up*


[Verse 1]
I've been coming at it like I started from the basement
Escalated flow now winning is my state of placement
Checks on the checklist
Cheques on my checklist
VIP they ain't on the guest list .
Lotta noise I don't hear em guess it's
Selective hearing men I came to get this.

[Pre chorus ]
Looking *Str8 Up*
Man dem ah real in my book *Str8 Up*
Keep it a 100 its vital *Str8 Up*
My crew so who u who u


[Chorus]
Got no time for playing we stay on the grind *Str8 Up*
I'm like point me where the nearest top is *Str8 Up*
Call me if you talking ego *Str8 Up*
*make money make money money money*
Stop me on my way and ask me where I'm headed *Str8 Up*

[Verse2]
Feel like a rocket lately
I’m taking off like I don’t plan to land
My verses bout to catch a body call the ambulance
Like that means I'm killing shit over
I'm topping it up like I’m on a new level
I’m ready, I’m climbing
I'm 1 up then 2 up
they thought I would lose it but I never settle
I'm finding the truth
Dropping some lines in the booth
Telecommute, Haters on mute
Soon I touched on the microphone
triggered, I’m aiming to shoot
Grades up do not test me
I schooled them from day 1
Like do not vex me
My bars dey for days man like i got plenty
My fuel dey my tank like it cannot empty

[Pre chorus ]
Looking *Str8 Up*
Man dem ah real in my book *Str8 Up*
Keep it a 100 its vital *Str8 Up*
My crew so who u who u


[Chorus]
Got no time for playing we stay on the grind *Str8 Up*
I'm like point me where the nearest top is *Str8 Up*
Call me if you talking ego *Str8 Up*
make money make money money money
Stop me on my way and ask me where I'm headed *Str8 Up*



[Verse3]
We bout that grind
Yeah we bout that grind like the costliest thing is our time
Cannot block that shine
I polish the flow till it worth every nickel and dime though
I don dey climb o!
now is the time wo!
get thee behind
if you cannot get the moment
then get with times bro

[Pre chorus ]
Looking *Str8 Up*
Man dem ah real in my book *Str8 Up*
Keep it a 100 its vital *Str8 Up*
My crew so who u who u


[Chorus]
Got no time for playing we stay on the grind *Str8 Up*
I'm like point me where the nearest top is *Str8 Up*
Call me if you talking ego *Str8 Up*
make money make money money money
Stop me on my way and ask me where I'm headed *Str8 Up*
