Send my bitch with the Cleo braids,
The track is like a dope boy's oath where Cityboy Chop reflects on the rules of the game that he has pledged his life to. Things that he has stood tall on and never folded both in life as well as in his music. Staying true to this oath has given him a presence on the track that few can have, the reason being that his verses come from stories he’s lived as opposed to stories told through someone else's eyes. This goes back to the earlier point of how he stands out from the millions of artists. He’s lived it!.
To build an empire you need help. For this track Cityboy Chop got Joey Organic to help deliver the message for Swear 2 Gawd. The hook singing Joey Organic is usually known as a rapper having released tracks of his own such as “No Hook Josè” that showed he could really rap. So to hear him singing is surprising yet not totally, having heard him sing backup for Youth The Vampire during his performances. His style complements Cityboy’s hard-hitting street lyrics as they both perform on the front steps of the Boston Avenue Methodist Church. The 2nd verse plays like a cumulation of all the lessons he’s learned, almost as to say, “I did this so that you didn’t have to” as Joey Organic sings “I Swear 2 Gawd”.
