Na Palm is an aspiring rapper representing the Chicago club scene. “Time To Rise” is my personal favorite of his tracks and comes from his mixtape “Dirty Girls Like Dirty Beats.” In his music and interviews Na Palm consistently credits his brother for pushing him to persevere and succeed when his future was nothing more than a vision. This track reminds me of my brother, who assisted and inspired me to continue pursuing my highest aspirations.
It started as a vision,
Just me and my brother,
We’re sitting in the kitchen,
Lookin at one another
Chasing dreams out this one bedroom apartment,
Grab my paper, got my pen, that’s how it got started
Writing lyrics from my spirit hope these people hear it,
It’s us against the world, and I’m gonna never fear it,
Say what I say cause I’m speaking what I’m feeling,
I spit it for the dreamers, I spit it for the children,
I spit 1,000 bars until I spit a million,
It’s coming from the heart, that’s why it’s so appealing

Start the weekend right by taking a journey back to hip-hop’s roots, the classic art of the freestyle. Many have touched the mic but few have left spectators in awe.
