The main components of my cultural identity

Many people have interest or pet peeves that mold them into who they are, some have items or mental things that give their culture a way to describe. I would like to explain my cultural identity with these objects that I have had over time.

It has a good message and some lyrical wordplay which Chance is known for. This song connects to the part of my culture where i never want to fail but only succeed. One of the main people I don't want to upset or fail is my mother therefore is a reason this song has significance to me. I only want to help and do good and never hurt others, music like this also makes me want to make a name for myself.
