Produced by Atlanta, Georgia based South African beat-making sensation EPIK THE DAWN, the riveting track about the journey to success showcases the reason why SG Guillotine is a name you are going to be hearing frequently this year.
Exhibiting a sound reminiscent of a medley of Tyga and G-Eazy but with an Irish twang and a supreme display of lyricism and a sound.
This track is a clear indicator of SG Guillotine’s unique, intricately crafted artistry and solidifies him as an artist to watch this year, as he is firmly on the rise in an undeniably promising direction.
Speaking on the message of the song, SG shared the meaning of the song.
“We can’t make it too fast we might crash out; refers to the journey to success and that we shouldn’t want it too fast because it could cause us to lose the run of ourselves and crash.
“When I say 200 on dash and laugh it’s all gas, I’m referring to the
fast come up and how it can seem really fun in the fast lane.
'We ain’t got nothing, we only got time and if you give me yours then you know you got mine,' basically means, time is the only thing we have and if you are willing to give me yours then you'll get the same from me.'
