This single, released late last year, is taken from the Texas-based rapper's rather good debut album 'Soul Food'. On the track Phil tells the story of being challenged by seeing a picture of a bikini-clad model he knows in a gas station magazine. The beat rolls in the background, incidental to the message, and Phil apologises for telling the model she was beautiful, asking whether this led to her selling herself. He wishes he could go back in time, telling her to stay humble and that beauty is not just skin deep. He wishes she could instead hear God's voice telling her about her inner beauty.
