  • This minimal street track is an ode to Lajan Slim's crew and their Haitian-American heritage. "I'm talking about how I'm in the field with my brothers," he told Genius. "My crew is diverse culturally, the majority of us are Haitians, some of us are Jamaicans. We call ourselves the Lajan Boys. Some of us play basketball, football, some go to college, I'm a rapper, some of us are street. And we just bring it all together with positivity."
