Following the release of his debut album, Nerd’s Eye View, Erk Tha Jerk has decided to release this track for you to get a better feel for his story. “Reach The Top (ft. J. Myers)” is a track that offers insight into his story.
“I wanted people to hear a detailed description of my story,” says Erk, who also produces and directs his own videos. “Where I came from – not the streets, but growing up as a kid; what the neighborhood looked like and how that helped shape me.”
“I am straight from the bottom/ The struggle, it’s not a problem/ New Jordan’s, I never got ’em/ My momma couldn’t afford ’em/ My father was talking mortgage/ 16, I started wilding,” and “Knew I was gonna shine even when my girl didn’t/ And look y’all, it’s happening just like Gerald said it/ So to my city, I’m just trying to put you on.”
Erk Tha Jerk was recently featured in XXL Magazine’s Show & Prove. Check the feature out below.
