"Promised my girl I’m gonna get us up out of this situation / cut back on sinning and changed the way I was living / so my sons ain’t have to come see they daddy in prison visitation," he raps.
The XXL Freshmen nominee is here to stay and putting his family first.
“Fire in the Church is basically the bad within the good,” Montana said. “A church is supposed to be holy. That’s what it was built for. And while it’s the church and no one is in there, it’s good. Once the people go into the church, they’re a fire. They come in with their sins and everything like that. They try to be on their best behavior and try to be mindful of what they do. Even while some people are looking at other people in the church and judging them in their head, or leave right after church, and be like, ‘did you see what such and such had on?’ Or ‘did you see how such and such came here with her kids, looking like this?’
"Like, you wanted to say that while you was in the church, but you waited until you got out, as if that really made a difference. And you still thinking it while you in there, so it’s like: No sugar coating, the good within the bad, and it also kind of represents my following and how I built my fanbase, was just word of mouth. If it’s a fire in the church, somebody’s running out of the church saying, ‘it’s a fire in the church!’ People that hear me, is like, you gotta listen to this dude. It’s something urgent in that extreme.”
