Track Name: Only One
ONLY ONE

I ain't the only one (6x)

(VERSE 1)

We was in the streets but nowadays we all in the industry (yeah)
This is it for me, but I'm so blessed that's things are changing differently (yeah)
Been on my own for a minute now I don't need ya sympathy (no)
I really came from nothing so when I make it big I'll always show humility

Remember days back at Kennedy, and people said I wouldn't be shit
I never let that shit get to me cuz I always knew that I'd be rich
I was stagnant up in them classrooms cuz I knew my passion was elsewhere
Ain't the only one that was down and out and was wondering if anybody else cares

Man I've had enough with the stress and pouting (stress and pouting)
It's too late now to be second doubting
Ya 2 cents I wanna hear less about it cuz this money I'm getting man I'm blessed to count it
I Was lost but now you can bet i found it
As I'm rising higher I'm forever grounded

They was doubting me before I even have tried
This is all I've wanted to do man to tell you the truth I've been seeing the signs
Cuz even as a child I remember nights staying up foolishly reaching the sky
Cuz I always knew that I was gonna make it but the only thing that I ever needed was time let the people decide

(CHORUS)

Cuz I'm know that I'm not the only one
(Tired of working a 9 to 5, just Waiting for my time to shine)
I know I ain't the only one
(That's grinding hard with no days off, just praying that this shit pays off)
Lord knows I ain't the only one
(That's tired of seeing the fam struggling, or ever had to make plans hustling)
I know I ain't the only one no no...
(Yeah yeah yeah yeah Aye, I know that I'm not the only one)

(VERSE 2)

I got friends even littles homies saying I'm the one they look to Up to
Now That's a lot of pressure but I'm focused Knowing I could mess it all up in One move
Thank god I realize it honestly
The 2 things that you can't deny are Honesty or that I'm putting in work constantly

I'm the Rap game Odysseus, riding round on my odyssey
So The bullshit you can miss me with, cuz I highly doubt that you'll be stopping me
I don't know where I'd be today if I was in the field and was still Trappin'
Good things do come with patience if it's Meant to be then it will happen

One day Imma buy the cars, one day Imma have a crib
Cuz I'm so addicted as I'm working for it, I guess that's just what a Habit is
I Couldn't live life not wanting more like I don't know what being passive is
Tunnel vision on the road to riches can't afford to get into no accidents

So I'm coming up for the top spot or whoever think that they have the shit
Ain't the only one who ain't cross the stage with their parents cheering for a graduate, man I had to quit
Ain't the only one that's praying that this goes right
Chasing something that I've wanted for my whole life


(CHORUS)
Track Name: Damn Thing
DAMN THING

(CHORUS)

I struggled for a minute what you know bout it
Now I got a bag my shawty gon count it
Told the fam we finna eat soon just don't doubt it
So If I feel some shade then I won't go round it

Cuz they don't know a damn thing
They don't know a damn thing about me at all
Said they don't know a damn thing
They don't know a damn thing about me at all

(VERSE 1)

A lot of shit up on my mind i gotta ventilate
I keep it a stack I never been a fake
I don't need nobody to put food up on my dinner plate
The way I'm livin' so damn fast i need to hit the brakes

Put the fam above it all they're who I hustle for
Different numbers shit be movin' off a couple phones
One by one seen friends in jail or fall in love with dope
Not to mention my nigga died a few months ago

My old ways I'm tryna leave behind
Just to get a little peace of mind
While in pursuit of this dream of mine
I know some people schemin' when they see me grind

Type of shit that makes me think I need to keep a 9
Under my pillow , Hope i don't wake up
Fame is on the way but it won't change us
Getting everything I deserve Takin no pay cuts
So even when a nigga shining man I won't Say much

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)

About me at all, yeah yeah, about me at all
I said not a damn thing at all (2x)

(VERSE 2)

I'm the motherfuckin' man god damn
Im just living my life following Gods plans
Humbled at the fact that a nigga got fans
Pull up to the show now a nigga got bands

So don't expect a hand out if you are not fam
Foreign women wit me and they all got tans
And while they pop xans and they clapping for me
Im feelin' so blessed without Having to sneeze
(Aye)

I don’t stay long if i don’t like the vibe of it
Ya negativity i don't have the time for it
(Yeah) and please pardon my french
Thinkin' deep with the blunt lit pardon the stench

As as hard it gets I'm putting up a fight
Stressing for perfection got me up at night
Slowly making every dream come to life
But since they hating I must be doing something right and that's real..

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Cold Nights
COLD NIGHTS LYRICS

(VERSE 1)

I've been drinkin' more I've been caring less damn that's make quite the combination
Ive been giving more while receiving less way too tired of the complications
I've been workin' more how I'm making less please explain why my pockets aching
The way I live my life is so impractical but at the same time ya watching greatness

Bitches show me love I don't ask for much except for good pussy and conversation
She taste sweeter than some apple cider last thing i need is my condom breakin'
Ive been beaten down profiled against
The streets love me but congress hate me
For that we give thanks to Ronald Reagan, since he the reason that product makin'

My whole neighborhood turn cold and my people die
Im tryna Balance out cuz i don't like the lows but I've fiend the highs
Bitch I'm Motivated going places tryna Keep my dream alive
I Asked God for help but why don't he reply , pick up your phone man I Need a sign

Then I realized I won't Take L's Id rather Take action
Cuz You can do anything with a pure heart and with a Greater passion
But Since I Only got one shot you know I'm finna Aim high
Knowing damn well I'm gonna Make mine but this shit is gon take time cuz

(CHORUS)

I remember them cold nights and cold days
Way back They used to tell me No way
Now we getting on what the fuck are they gon say
They just mad that I made it out in my own way

I remember em cold nights (yayaya)
I remember em cold nights (yayaya)
Doing shit that was so wrong , never felt so right
Tryna get my dough right.. For all the days that I remembered em cold nights (yayaya)

(VERSE 2)

I've always wanted something better my whole life (yayaya)
Taking chances in the field like I'm finna roll dice (yayaya)
Arrest first ask question later the police never read no rights with they sirens looking like strobe lights oh my (yayaya)

You outta know that I'm here to stay
If you in my path better clear the way
I ain't living good but I'm feelin' great
Cuz Its just a matter of time
You can't match my passion or drive
Watchu know about having to grind
I was workin 3 jobs while I trapped on the side

Put my life in these rhymes so you can fantasize on the side and see what it Be like
For a young nigga coming from the east side
Who Need that money cuz we all tryna Eat right?
This is my odyssey but it's the Rewrite
See I'm mix between Homer with the pen writing epics and Odysseus getting stronger with Each fight

To withstand ya negativity and Reach heights
And Be a beacon in the streets cuz we need light
It Really ain't making sense
But at the same time I'm remaining blessed
Shoutout to the Fam cuz they made the best
So I Won't stop til they no longer facing debt
Cuz Through all the obstacles and times that we was down lord knows that I can't forget

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Nobody
NOBODY

(singing)

Nobody.. I don't wanna hear that shit from nobody (Yeah)

Nobody, yeah, look

(VERSE 1)

A lot of shit done changed up since I was first rapping
Turned down on going to church clapping
And turned up with hoes that were thirst trapping
Grew up around where the worst happens
Most of us didn't Make it out
Offa gang related shit, purse snatching
And a lot of things I hate to think about

Talk to the Fam on FaceTime
When I'm outside of those state lines
They keep asking me how I'm doing I say I'm well but I hate lying
Then they ask me when I'm coming home and I say as soon as I make mine
Its not IF I do it, It's WHEN I do it... But Just know that this is gonna Take time (yeah)

Cuz You can't plant a seed now and expect a flower the next day
The irony we came up out the mud So we want ours in the best way
Couldn't care what the Rest say, I don't wanna hear your feedback
So When it comes to your 2 cents, best believe that you can keep that

Nowadays I just speak my mind and don't Hold back
Been On the road like a nomad chasing everything that I don't have
Faded off that cognac cuz you don't know what I'm going thru
Standing strong on my own 2 cuz I'm Supposed to

(CHORUS)

Lord knows that's I'm stressed
But to be here I'm blessed yeah
Ain't satisfied with nothing less
Always Givin you my best yeah
So You better come correct
Or at least get out of the way
To anyone throwing some shade
Imma say that
I don't wanna hear that shit from nobody (Nobody)

I don't wanna hear that shit from nobody (Nobody)
They tried to play me now they saying they so sorry (so sorry)

But I don't wanna hear that shit from nobody , Nobody!

(BRIDGE)
Lord knows that's I'm stressed
But to be here I'm blessed yeah
Ain't satisfied with nothing less
Always Givin you my best yeah
So You better come correct
Or at least get out of the way
To anyone throwing some shade..

I Dont Wanna Hear That Shit From Nobody!

(VERSE 2)

And I'm mean that shit genuinely
I can see right through the jealousy
And I expected better from my enemies
I'm Sippin until all the Henny done, then I shawty to go get me some
I'm Bernie Mac with the rap shit cuz I ain't scared of Any one

I know there's people tryna Set me up, but understand that i ain't slippin now
It's crazy how they hated but suddenly I'm the one that they pickin now
If I stayed I would be broke, so I decided to go in a Different route
Now I'm gettin more than I ever have, Save to say I got it Figured out

I don't got time for Explanations, Headed to my destination
We boutta eat real soon, pull up with no reservation
Without any hesitation, I Came a long way from the basement Now we here cuz we was patient, thanking (yeah)

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Fall Thru
FALL THRU

(VERSE 1)

I know that it's been a while since we hooked up
But I've been on the road cuz my schedule's been getting booked up
Your vibe really got me high like I took drugs
Thinkin bout that ass and when I'm back around boutta Imma Pull up

Stressed out and all I want is some good love (from you)
Cuz A hundred women dont matter when you found a good one (only you)
Ain't Holding back knowing that Time is passing
Throw a flag on the play Like its madden
Hoping that it's more than what I imagine
When I'm home better know I am smashing

It's my fault you lay alone
Damn you are a Fine attraction
Shining like you made of gold
Maybe Midas might've tap it
Time for me to take control
Cuz You ain't had this type of passion
Give you what you waiting for
I'll make it known

(CHORUS)

I knew right when I saw you
That I ain't want a piece girl I need all you
Lemme be the one you give your all too
Just say the word and imma fall thru
Say the word and imma fall thru (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
All you gotta do is pick up when i call you (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
Just say the word and imma fall thru for your loving
Cuz I knew right when I saw you
Shawty I need all you
You're who I belong to
Just say the word and imma fall thru

(VERSE 2)

You know that this lifestyle really comes with stress
But I'm gonna make sure I give you all of me until there's nothing left
You're the type that I'd wanna call even when my phone is on one percent
Probably while you're wearing one of my white tees looking underdressed (oooh)

And I ain't running game so please quit with all the quick assumptions
I want you on my right side when I hit the function
To be the one I hit my blunts with
Dancing as we get to touching
The way you move that thing and bust it
That really isn't meant for public
But I ain't complaining in the slightest
Let's leave and take this somewhere private
Either my place or to your place
The only time we should be fighting
But I ain't tryna argue
Rather tell you what I wan do
Imma really put it on you


(CHORUS)
Track Name: Shepherd
SHEPHERD

I'm just tryna give you that...
Swear that these niggas be sleep... (Yeah)

(VERSE 1)

Welcome to the jungle where the humble and the thugs
Get to rumble over trouble and the hustling of drugs
Struggle over crumbles just wondering where the love at?
Cuz There's no fun in having to run away from some gun claps
And this shit will end with someone getting bust back
Just Reminiscing on the bus with my bus pass
Use to get by off lunch snacks and Rugrats
But now we getting high off dub sacs in em blunt raps

Other days I need an eight or an ounce
Best believe I'm gon' be facing that loud
Cuz most these niggas smile in your face but they hate and they doubt
While Bitches choosing based on Savings in your banking accounts damn

Been popping pills and drinking since the 7th grade
Round the time my friends was sellin' weed for better Jays
Now they either down in Jail or up at heavens gates
As I'm praying for some better days but we gon get it straight

Even though I grew up around some violence
Ambulances and sirens
A Misfit misguided with no guidance
But i know that the lord knows that I'm trying
In deep search for enlightenment
These Streets are a lions den
Hoping to be inspiring to make your pain stop
Cuz ever since they beat my ass man I hate cops
Feeling like I got no umbrella walking thru the rain drops
And This ain't a fable no Aesop nigga

(CHORUS)

I'm just tryna give you that real
But I swear that these niggas sleep!
I know that Id rather be the Shepherd than to ever ever be the sheep
No one can ever tell me what to think
No one can ever tell me who to be
Nowadays it's kill or be killed
Is it gonna be you or will it be me
What is it gon be?
What is it gon be?
Is it gonna be will it be me? (aye)
I'm just tryna give you that real
But I swear that these niggas sleep!
I know that Id rather be the Shepherd than to ever ever be the sheep

(VERSE 2)

Yeah I Came from the gutter, got my name from my mother, learned the game from my brother
Seen some things during the summers, but that shit made me tougher
Never played for no sucker, remember when we was younger, Belly was full with hunger

Often labeled as a statistic or even a number
But when niggas die the immediate suffer
FOX News barely give us with any media coverage
As we Blind like the sheep even Stevie he wonder

But I don't really know why they like to go and throw shade.... on everything that I do
You and I ain't never been the same, yeah... Been feeling this way since high school
I Don't got time to complain... Imma Keep it briefer than a haiku
Thinkin bout it put me in a daze... Getting dizzy at the looping the cycle

Cuz I'm a product of my environment
Catch me ridin round my town hear the tires spin
And My day 1's the only ones that I'm ridin' with
Bitch I'm grindin' to get that early retirement
Use to sell dope but now I sell quotes for a better price
It was all we knew so we could have a better life
And Music is my second chance that got me feeling limitless
My Pops told me it not how start its how you finish it

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Courtside / Dead or Alive
Courtside / Dead Or Alive

Courtside

(VERSE 1)

I can't fuck with no complacency
Please believe you need keep that shit away from me
Feel like DJ Khaled Droppin all these Major keys
This game is cutthroat if you in you betta Play for keeps
I've been in them trenches deep somebody Pray for me
Plotting on just how to get from A to B
I Make more off a play than what you make a week
Back around the way what can they Say to me
Yeah I'm On the road to riches with No hands on the wheel driving
It don't matter how much shade you throwin cuz I'm Still shining
When I set a goal I don't talk about it til I real life it
They keep askin bout when the album Droppin, And i say whenever I feel like it
Got ya main tryna stay the night when I lay the pipe but I'm too busy getting my Paper right, while you on the sides cuz you the hating type
Had Nightmares of the very bottom with aspirations of some Greater heights
I swear I'm Changing my whole Way of life...

(CHORUS)

Cuz I'm done with sitting court side
Sitting Court side
To do it big is all I've wanted in My Whole life
In my Whole life
Put me in the game and I'm scoring bitch we won't tie
No we won't tie
I do not need your approval or a cosign
Cuz I'm done with sitting Courtside


DEAD OR ALIVE

(VERSE 1)

Tell me what you niggas really know about sacrifice
I had to leave it all behind because I wasn't satisfied
With the way that I've been living man It's gonna take a lot of feed this appetite
It's bout time I Made the decision to stop taking all of your bad advice
Tryna get to Elysium in my afterlife

Doubting me has Been the best thing you could do for me
The extra motivation was all that I needed to go ahead and start me a new story
Cuz my only concern is for my family
Put everything in my Plan A fuck ya plan b
Just Thinkin about it now man I Can't sleep
While my momma workin full time when she can't see

Man I think it's time we go and set the record straight
I ain't boutta settle for no second place
I Hustle everyday like I never ate
Call me Warren G the way I'm boutta Regulate, lemme demonstrate

I'm Tryna elevate cuz We just want it all really
Especially coming up from a Small city
With very big aspirations to ball filthy
Wanna thumb thru couple 100 bands in all fifties

(CHORUS)

I got my eyes set on the prize
Pedal to the floor, heading up the road on an unforgettable drive
No You can't stop me from getting what's mine
Even with a Bounty on my head
They'd have to come take me dead or alive (2x)
But That won't stop me from getting what's mine, no
Hoping that one day Im gon' get it right
Even with a Bounty on my head
They'd have to come take me dead or alive yeah
Come take me dead or alive
But That won't stop me from getting what's mine
With a bounty on my head, middle finger to the Feds, they'd have to come take me dead or alive
Track Name: Next Up
Next Up


(VERSE 1)

Shoutout to my day ones and my niggas that done stayed down
Coming from that Maryland but now I'm in The Bay now
Back and forth with meetings in LA taking the Greyhound
Living life my own way so there's nothing they can say now

Man I gots to get it
Remember days when I had no pot to piss in
Sitting frustrated with the opposition
Cuz ya not convincing
Y'all acting faker than some lock extensions

Taking everything that God has given me straight to the top
While I'm shining a lot cuz the spot is missing
Better stop your bitching cuz nothing can stop my vision

As I'm on the road to riches and I'm faded while I'm drivin the muhhfuckin whip aye
Lotta niggas hate it but I'm still gon make it lovin this shit while I'm chuggin a fifth so

Any shade that they throw my way Imma treat it like it's nothing I don't trip
I just say a little rhyme I wrote when I was younger and it go a little something like this aye


(BRIDGE)
Whenever my head down, I just keep my head up
Struggled at the bottom damn, now its time to get up
I put it on the fam, that my plans to get this bread up
I hope they understand I'm feeling next up


(CHORUS)

(performed at the same time)

Bitch I'm next up, bitch I'm next up, yeah I'm next up
Flexed up, bitch I'm flexed up, yeah i'm flexed up
Was fed up, with my head down now my head up
We gon get this bread up, feeling like I'm next up (2x)

Life is really what you make of it
I'm just grinding and I'm taking risks
Celebrating getting faded, I suggest you niggas step up
I ain't saying I'm the greatest, yet, all I know is that I'm next up


(VERSE 2)

I swear this is my new theme song, playing this in a casino
Only stepped in with like ten dollars, but imma leave with some G's tho
Please pardon me for my ego, y'all just really gotta understand
This is for all the times that I was down and out but right now nigga I am up again look who I'm up against (no one)

Wake up every morning so blessed then I get right to the paper yeah we gon grind
Cuz my fam at home worry bout me too much, this one's for you momma please don't cry
Soon you're gonna wipe your eyes with the money that imma send to you we gonna be alright
Imma cold ass nigga from the 301 getting turnt up like i'm from the 305
Shoutout to my niggas in the 415 and all the pretty hoes in the 510
Tappin that (pause) like a xylophone
Off of the recordings on my microphone
Just thinking about quitting my 9 to 5
To be living that life nigga I don't know
But I feel so damn close that I gotta keep pushing myself only time will show so...


(BRIDGE)


(CHORUS)
Track Name: Beauty
BEAUTY LYRICS

(VERSE 1)

What doesn't kill me is gonna make me stronger
It's clear my enemies are gonna Hate me longer
While all the negativity will Take me farther
I bet these women want me as their baby father

Man it's crazy how much I have grown
You learn a lot about yourself when spending nights alone
Even when I had me too many
Drinkin all this Jack and some Henny
And my doubts are starting to get me
I know this microphone will lead me to the life I want aye

And Now I'm eating fasho
Just know I'm Not too far away from me achieving my goals
But really far away from MoCo when I'd Sleep on the floor
I Never thought that I would make it here and be on the road

That's why whenever I hit the stage I treat my fans like fuckin Fam
Cuz Y'all will be the ones to soon help me support my fuckin Fam
Help me get my first hundred grand and even help me pay off Uncle Sam
This shit has me so humbled and for that I hope you'll Understand that

(CHORUS)

I wouldn't change this shit for nothing
I wouldn't change this shit for nothing at all (why's that)
Because there's beauty in the struggle (watchu mean)
Because there's beauty in the struggle (2x)

(VERSE 2)

Common told me slow motion better than no motion
Now I'm flyin coast to coast and soon across the ocean
Doin shows and livin life the way I envisioned
When I was 9 writing some rhymes washin some plates and some dishes

Was way too shy to tell my friends i was legit with the writtens
Back when I got no plays or listens but then made it my mission
I used to complain even felt ashamed whenever my name wasn't mentioned
But I let that shame become the flame that'll help me gain some attention goddamn (goddamn)

Being homeless was a choice
These were sacrifices made to let the world hear my voice
Motivated off of all the visions running through my head
Of me holdin my family while I'm thumbin thru some bread

I Got friends of mine who were born rich and they livin life with no problems
Sometimes I used to get jealous lookin up to them from the bottom
But that's where my drive and my passion really came from and I'm proud
So when they ask me if I could change shit I look back and tell them out loud that (huh)

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Ain't None
AINT NONE

(VERSE 1)

First things first I'm blessed, thanking God that a nigga like me ain't Die yet
Or get caught up whippin work up in a Pyrex
Cuz Being Trapped inside the trap is one Tough pill to swallow but it's an even harder One to digest but I digress

I'm next Ain't no other way for me to say it than to keep it direct
Quality over quantity just making sure I don't give you nothing less than my best
Living my life whyreless had to change up my Mindset
So The last thing that I need from you is you adding more to My stress

And for me to talk about some bullshit is the last thing that Y'all need
I got the game up in my hands like I just learned how to palm read
Gettin faded as I'm getting shade Chillin under some Palm trees with a calm breeze
But Don't ask me what this cost me
Way more than you can imagine but They love how I Kill instrumentals
I swear This ain't coincidental Cuz i Been Asential did you get memo?
If not I'll resend the info to make sure that you get copy
Cuz No one got me like God got me so I...

(CHORUS)

Say my prayers everyday I wake up
You can't tell me shit my mind is made up
I'm so Whyreless that all my wires stay cut
People talk a lot but I don't Say much
I Just move it to the side just like it ain't none

To the side just like it ain't none
Move that shit just like it ain't none
Waiting for my haters tryna Say something
I just Move it to the side just like it ain't none (2x)

(VERSE 2)

Struggled for so long it's time I came up
If I'm not around don't bring my name up
Painting vivid pictures with no paintbrush
I ain't stopping til they say that I'm the Great one

People have the nerve to say I changed up
Rarely home but always repping where I came from
Seen a lotta shit that I can't make up
But that shit made us

As i'm On this path Of mine I'm just tryna find balance and do right
Cuz That's what happens When you put shit in perspective and never Lose sight
To beat the odds I gotta take risks
That's the way it is when you out here in these streets too busy tryna make dollars so I guess in the end it make sense

The way I put in on the line
Like a car in drive
Pedal to the floor
Watch my stars aline
Stressing for Success
It ain't hard to find
Working overtime so I won't fall behind
Made a lot Progress with Each step
And As I Reflect i...

Introspection (Outro)

(CHORUS)

What would you try to do if you was me?
What would you try to do if you was me?
Would you sit up on the side and watch just like a movie scene
Or make a move to go pursue all of your truest dreams?

What would you try to do if you was me?
Really... What would you try to do if you was me?
Would you sit up on the side and watch just like a movie scene
Or make a move to go pursue all of your truest dreams?

(VERSE 1)

Life up in The Bay and LA is so new to me
On the brink of something big it's suiting me suitably
Told myself it's time to go and chase what you deserve
Fuck the moon and the stars I'm taking the universe

It's already bad enough I'm dealing with Lucifer
Now I've made some enemies and I know that they're soon to lurk
Been so sedated lately I don't what is what?
Tangled in the middle of bullshit playing double dutch

Metaphor for how I'm caught up in the whirlwinds
I'm Screaming "Asential!" until the world ends
Took so many L's it's time I get my first win
Used to feel worthless til I found purpose in these verses

Shit ain't perfect but that's just how life works
When I give you that real shit just know that it might hurt
Been the villain because my city treated me like dirt
Life a bitch I've fucked her raw then gave her my white shirt

My Momma was blind first, now her neck and spine hurt
Watching that since 9 had me I cry until my eyes hurt
Ironic while my dad and brother fighting and it ain't getting better
Conflicted to make a difference cuz this can't be forever...

(CHORUS)

So What would you try to do if you was me?
I gotta know What would you try to do if you was me?
Would you sit up on the side and watch just like a movie scene
Or make a move to go pursue all of your truest dreams (2x)

(VERSE 2)

That's just the way it is... The way it goes
And as I'm saying this.. Hope that you save your soul
We gotta save the kids cuz they too young to pay the toll
I'll be the shepherd for em so I can pave the road

Show that there's more to life and beauty in the struggle
I've been thru so much shit that truly I am humbled
Coming out a Community that is troubled
Moved to the west and opportunities done doubled

Until we meet again I've been on this odyssey, fulfilling this prophecy
Nobody is stopping me so
Somebody Tell me something that I don't know
Every day I'm Feeling next up nigga I hope so

This that shit to ease ya mind to shove Complacency
Ever since a little one that shit just ain't for me
So Please Keep ya negative energy away from me
So determined you can't stop who or what I aim to be

Still gotta get my momma new crib
And Take my dad out that taxi to put him in a new whip
I swear the ones who the talk the most be the ones that don't Do shit
I'd told everyone i'd make it now it's time to prove it

Can't let the cycle repeat and forever complain
So I broke it knowing that all of the pleasures I'll gain
Will be enough to feed the fam despite the Pressures it brings
But I'd rather go and risk it all than to Never had changed and that's real....
