AUGUST ALSINA - Don't Forget About Me

This song is from the album Downtown: Life Under the Gun(2013), released on Aug 20, 2013.
As always, I loved the way that he tells the stories through his songs. All his songs have great meaning and has a story behind it. In this one, he talks about all his friends that are still on his mind. The production felt smooth and the rhythm had a good groove to it.
SongRating: 8.5/10

I'll never forget where I come from, I'm from the bottom

The shoes on my feet, remember how I got'em

Didn't have a lot
Bb
But a nigga had enough
                 C
Had to keep it moving when the going got tough

It was bad y'all

Lost some niggas on the way, it's sad y'all
Eb
They couldn't make it
Eb
