What You Need is the first official single from rap duo Element of Change. EOC consists of Bay Area lyricists VNGO and Jupiter 7 who first formed their group back in 2001 while being roommates in college. After almost completing an album together, the group broke up and went on to have solo careers. The single starts off where they left off with a sense of nostalgia and having something to say.


(J7 Verse)
We’re going back to the start, where we felt heavy hearted
Where rap wasn’t regarded as good, they disregard it
And the world had the pleasure use it and then abuse it
It became so abusive it was weaponized in usage
But little did they know that hip-hop was not exclusive
And this artform could be put in the hands of those who choose it
And if the call really meant what it should, then why wouldn’t
Certain men and woman rise up and do what they said couldn’t
Now the underground movement is booming the people swoom-in
Rhymes from the divine hit your soul your body moving
Hip-hop's alive with a voice for the people to strive
No more nickels and dimes, yo it’s a new way to grind
It’s soul food for the mind, a sound captured in time
So take a listen and just… keep pressing rewind
And let these rhymes stimulate and formulate
Until it motivates and regulates your soul

I don't got what you want
But I got what you need
(repeated 4x)

(VNGO Verse)
I don’t got what you want but I got what you need
this is elements of change baby EOC
Yes Life’s been a test like SATs
still trusting on God with his expertise.
No dumb stuff that ain’t how we run stuff
you can take the trash talk leave it at the dumpster
Want some wholesome food for the soul the kitchens open
got living water too way more than all oceans combined
Yeah, sit down let’s break bread
God got a plan for you no time to play dead
hands on the clock don’t stop they still spin
people wanting more life now right before it ends
man still needing God’s word like an anvil hands on the heart when you see Sparks stand still
-Ain’t a greater shape than God could make out of any day working on a man or a woman so let Him swing away
