I'm Don Draper taking naps in the skyscraper We had a room at the Breakers, I had to cash 10 favors Never knew the importance of the Sky Pager Or Eddie Jones on the '95 Lakers Wake neighbors, Nespresso blend with the 8 flavors You need a healthy dose of naysayers Ira Newble, accountants find loopholes Steve Zissou and Jacque Cousteau never get this low I'm Zilla Roc now, hardocre You're just a keyholder in the hip hop store We were part time, now we're international with darts flying ANX used to turn all my Darktime to Sunshine Sign of maturity, rap never taught me nothing morally It cut down my crew and charged recording fees At least I know I'm nice now '09 trying to be Elzhi You trapped in the '90s but you can't tell time Selling all my old Dunks half what I paid Don't wanna be a hoarder, second round pick, Kyle Korver That means I'm still drawing crowds even when I age Shooter gravity, you wearing white suits and spilling daiquiris You messy clowns just a mess out here Still a mess out here, I'm playing Obie Trice "Cheers" My 20's were jampacked with bad ideas But now that boy grown, and I'm in great shape Y'all pretend to be saved just to save face Go ahead and say grace, the crew is eating now Octopus Method, 8 ways of getting cash just to reinvest it The blade work perfected Never can you say that Vic Sage been Questioned Unquestioned, since '08 mixtape progressions Been giving y'all lessons But guess who's bizzack, back on the block with them flows Zilla Rocc shit infecting the globe Now I need to relax, it's still Three Dollar Pistol The Wrecking Crew love is all I know And this world I know, are neighborhood bookies Before Draft Kings made your pops sell his wedding ring Source magazine, Slam magazine, XXL When white people barely liked Denzel How you write so well? Man I study all my favorites And stay up on the new shit, I'm never outdated The game takes patience, that makes me Job See me checking on the mic and watch the place explode Watch my fate unfold, feel me Holla if you hear me though, can you feel me...flow With the company, 215 they gonna run with me Since street football and bloody dungarees How you living comfortably and still stay prolific? Time management and ice cubes for what I'm sipping GONE!

New Love 02:08
She heard I found a new love, she heard I found a new love She heard I found a new love although I won't announce it She won't allow it I'm sitting on a secret love, discreet enough Excited when I see her We speak in hushed tones, we lust for it The more you want something, it's harder to function And then secret gets you weak, you start leaking it, it turns public A sore subject for the loser in the love triangle I'm growing distant, my lies grow substantial Like "Nah, see we're just friends" But a woman's intuition always picks up on your scent My new love she has to play the bench My old love with her I split the rent DAMN! She heard I found a new love, she heard I found a new love but She won't allow it

Started questioning my future when I couldn't hit a curveball And my jumper wasn't smooth enough Had no instrumentals or a microphone at my disposal That didn't stop a shiesty A&R from trying to poach me I'm thinking cool...I'll be signed by 24 at the latest Or I'll drop out of college just like Ye did But we end up skating so my new incarnation was some left field shit Before an iPod could place it In context with other styles of music that we sported Our last ditch was a CD that went ignored But uh...I kept it moving Formed a unit with some homies pulling swords outta stones Cause the top is so lonely, ayo they know me I worship Pretty Toney I splintered with the Shadowboxer logic now I sport hard bottoms not Saucony's They call me phony But passion outweighs the need to be accepted I guess I finally understood Kobe Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling We've been here from day one but them days ain't gone For the actions of the now so I can move on Check 1-2, who got more styles than son do? Not you, you soft as Otis Spunkmeyer in them high school lunchrooms Saturated fat rap Spent a small fortune on my baseball hats Before I settled in as a rap dad in a dad hat Had to cut my ASCAP, paying tax on $40 royalties Shopping at Save-a-lot, copping dented up cans of Chef Boyardee My grandmother had those Little Debbie's waiting for me And we would watch "Golden Girls" on her big old TV And she just died after turning 103, I miss you grandmom Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling Wait back it up man let me stop stalling Cause everything I do is like falling We've been here from day one but them days ain't gone For the actions of the now so I can move on

Bats in the belfry, missed calls from Dr. Melfi Craigslist signed shirt Mike Pelfrey Quite healthy, quiet life Phone calls them Hawaiian nights Tell my barber keep it high and tight! My advice: don't lie about what you don't know Democrats and junkies all around my block shooting dope When I was living single I was living broke Sat down like Siddhartha, old man saying "The river knows" Let your troubles flow, every man whose born alone with die alone Children of the Atom out the bio-dome So now we have it all but how much is too much? And how my neighbors got handicapped spots with new trucks? Everybody’s got a fuckin cousin somewhere out there greasing wheels 2 Raw For the Streetz DVDs in '03 before Meek had a Mill I sipping on swill but still spitting to kill Roman Catholic kids dipping on pills I bet Shells is with Pimp C gripping the wheel You gotta soul search My entire style is just that ether a slow burn Now you gets no burn As long as the world turn I’ll be living next to out work electricians who smoke cigs and hold percs We never had a goalie just Goldberg You never had shooters they Boebert So step back like old Dirk The rap race was the all out plan... Some have a lot, some barely have it all Elbow to the knuckles hand stirring pasta sauce Used to watch The Box while wearing Hugo Boss MC Breed on my brain at the stations of the cross I gotta get mine, you gotta get yours I gotta get mine, but first you gotta get yours All our priests were just drunks who loved the eagles Randal, Reggie, Roger Rouzak, and Jeff Feagles Hop the gate sneak in Veteran Stadium 80’s baby, Tecmo Bowl, Eddie Arcadian Monday night 10 cent wings at the Philadium Whiskey in my pocket, stoic wisdom in my cranium The car is big the crib is bigger My kid is happy the perfect picture The car is big the crib is bigger My kid is happy the perfect picture

about

Coming off his breakout LPs "POP 1967" and "The Rain Knows What It's Doing", andrew seemed an unlikely production partner for Zilla Rocca's bourbon drenched punchlines and late '90s east coast rap lineage.

But that's the thing about chemistry: you can't explain it. You just know when it works.

Every beat andrew sent over became a song. Every song Zilla wrote referencing the touchstones of Italian heritage South Philly residents know too well built a new brotherhood. "Don't Wait For Me to Leave" are songs born of experience backed by the lushest beats in the indie rap lane.

"Dom Irrera" is a note on how your favorite local spots change into vape shops and laundromats over time but you stay the same. "No One Cooks on Friday" boasts how fly it is to order in and do nothing every weekend. "Actions of the Now" examines how failures teach you more than any college ever could on how to succeed.

Of course, there is RAPPING! Zilla Rocca has never rapped this much non-stop in his long legged life, specifically on cuts "Draper Papers" and "The River Knows", going 80+ bars deep. andrew takes a look under the hood to add his signature gravel-paved melodious tones to "Dom Irrera", "No One Cooks on Friday", and "You Need Friends". But even off the mic, andrew's now trademark ear for beauty and funk shape the record undeniably.

The most versatile indie rappers of today check in to tell stories and add their signatures to the bottom of the painting - ALASKA of Hangar 18/Atoms Fam, PremRock and Curly Castro of ShrapKnel/Wrecking Crew, Wally Clark, Rich Jones, Teller Banks, and Brian Ennals.

"Don't Wait For Me to Leave" is for people who always prefer local over national, neighborhoods over culdesacs, Sunday's with Sinatra over Journey at the dive bar.
