“Break it down, all I see is digits,” raps Philly’s Andre Altrez on his latest single “Mind Ur,” a meditation on finance and focus.

He’s aspirational (“I can’t waste a fuckin’ thought, I’m too busy counting cash”) and he’s a motivational sage (“if it don’t make dollars then it don’t make sense”), and in the process, created a juicy three-minutes-and-change earworm for your Thursday. Take a listen below.
