2 Live Another Day tells the story of a young man, struggling to break free from the Southeast London streets, trapped by the underbelly of his local society, caught up in the wrongs of street life. As he strives to better himself and leave the streets behind, he cannot help but be drawn back to the powers that be, back into their circle of inner-city street life.
U Don't Know looks at the injustices in the world as we know it today and the effect it has on the common man. From Bush to the New World Order, from Hitler to the Lawrence enquiry, corruption and politics, Born 2 B captures the view of changing times with this piece. Taken from the forthcoming CD album Original Olde English (Release date: June 2010).
