Kanye West has always had a way of encouraging his fans with his work and words. On the 2005 single “Heard ‘Em Say,” he simply states, “And I heard ’em say, nothing’s every promised tomorrow, today / But we’ll find a way.” For those who have followed Little Simz’ ascension, they’re fully aware that she continues to find a way to build her career on her own terms. With that in mind, it seems appropriate that she would want to deliver a freestyle over the classic.
For her own personal take, Simz mentions how she heard people say what they thought she’d never be able to do—but continued to prove them wrong. Similar to the original, this freestyle serves as motivation to believe in yourself and create your own path.
