Jackie Spade ft. Lute | Section 8 | Music
Low income housing, food stamps, and dope are all stigmas of inner city Kinston, NC. Jackie Spade’s “Section 8” brings light to the seemingly dark environment he was raised. He melodically tells a story of growth through circumstance accompanied by Dreamville’s very own, Lute. The uplifting hook and glorifying message makes this song a hymn to be sung by angels across the ghettos of the world. “Taught to be about my business, always money over b*****s, don’t get caught up in nobody bull***t, and let God be my only witness...This line in the song always stood out to me because it fully encompassed my life growing up in Kinston, NC” - Jackie Spade
