Story

S.O.I. Duka strives to capture and bring forth the feeling and atmosphere of the days when our mothers and grandmothers prayed for us. In those times, respect was in the forefront of our culture. As time passed, and the cultural pioneering light dimmed, the art of respect for and in our culture has lost its lumens. As a result, we're living in the dark days where our young black men and women are being crucified on the streets of our country. It is imperative that our mothers and grandmothers return to prayer. For it is by their prayer that we're protected as we and our leaders go against the hate filled image of our culture!

Lyrics

Chorus:
Pray for me...... mama please pray for me...Faithfully
Pray(3X) mama please pray for me...Faithfully

Verse:

Ain't no prayer like a mother's prayer;
In church all Sunday with my brothers there
Tired than a hoe from the night before
Finding residue from my daddy's dope
You taught me the ethics of get to the money
Pick a bee by her sting and never her honey
Back when I was dating Ciera from Connally
Back when sta-flo had us walking like mummies
Pops was in jail, jones at work, big mama in the room on the prayer line
They were in and out the window like clock work, even they knew when it was prayer time

Bridge
So Tomorrow....when your eyes open wide
Please send a prayer for me way way High
cause Tomorrow before your eyes open wide 
I'm guaranteed to run a check way way high!

Chorus:

Pray for me...... mama please pray for me...Faithfully
Pray(3X) mama please pray for me...Faithfully


Verse 2

Day 5 warming up leftovers;  old shoes got the kid a step closer
To the free lunch line; getting flexed on
I want what's mine; I'm head strong
I'm chasing these checks tryna run it up
If God does nothin he's done enough
Stand tall always can't crumble up
Go hard or go home get the numbers up
Yay tho I walk thru the shadows of death I bet not fear no evil
I bet not entertain people I bet not change me either
Mama you did it; big mama you did it, don't know how you did it.
Pray for the hustler while I go get it

Bridge
So Tomorrow....when your eyes open wide
Please send a prayer for me way way High
Because Tomorrow before your eyes open wide 
I'm guaranteed to run a check way way high!

Chorus:

Pray for me...... mama please pray for me...Faithfully
Pray(3X) mama please pray for me...Faithfully
