“I said mama you know yo’ son a solider, she say boy don’t forget what your pops told ya, if you ain’t first then you last, you can’t be both…”
– quote from “Soulja Mentality”
LiBand comes with another banging track, “Soulja Mentality.”
“Soulja Mentality” is a soulful kind of hip-hop track with intense, sentimental lyrics that gives a glimpse of LiBand’s life and how tough he needs to be to face daily challenges. He compares his lifestyle to the life of a soldier who always has to be alert and aware to stay on top. Going out to hustle daily is like a soldier that is going for war. He talks about his mother’s advice to him as she reminds him of his father’s words that if he is not the first, he is the last and reminds him to be mindful of people.
The video clip further augments the intensity of the track and his presence. He spits passionate bars with a helicopter serving as the backdrop in some scenes and a war-ready relic cannon in other scenes. The passion of the lyrics flows into the production of the video clip. The trap beat is top-notch, perfectly complementing his blazing bars. The song comes to a moving end with LiBand getting a call from his father, who is in jail, encouraging him and reminding him that he is a soldier who needs to stay on top.
