On The Grind

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Sonny Sandoval: "The lyrics got changed when the Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. came in. The song took a whole new meaning when (Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. member) Gotti started singing the chorus. He got really emotional. That guy got shot 10 times in the back years ago and almost died. So, he changed all the words from 'We' to 'I' because he was relating the chorus to himself." >>

  • Kris from Corpus Christ, TxInteresting song, since P.O.D. doesn't have many rap songs. I had to get use to it since I'm always hearing rock from P.O.D. But surprisingly it gets quite addicting. I believe the song is about a ex-ganster who seeks for a higher good and a better way of life.

    The statement "beat the hymen" is not what you think. They're using the term for breaking out into something new.
