Now here is a story all about how
My life got flipped-turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit and revolve
I’ll tell you how I became the tattoo artist named Zitman at Studio Evolve

Innnnn Northeast Philadelphia born and raised, in an art room where I spent most of my days. 
Sketching’ out maxin’ drawlin’ all cool
And making fun of teachers outside of the school
When a couple of artists saw I was good
Started making me draw doodles in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my 19 year career was dissolved
Gabe said, “You’re movin in with me at Studio Evolve”

I begged for a job and when it came true
The owner named Gabe said “Fuck up and your through”
If anything I could say that this job was involved
But I thought, “Nah, forget it”
– “Yo, home to Evolve”

I show up to the shop about 11 or 12 
And I yelled to the client 
“Yo homie stab ya later”
I looked at my kingdoms 
I could finally resolve
To sit at my booth as Zitman, the artist of Evolve
