Fuck a Life of Crime
I put my Life in Rhymes
Each horizontal line
Is filled with wat I went thru at times
Like let me Rewind, Let me Rewind.(2X)
Back in 2009
When It was juz me & my lonely mind,
Didn’t know what I wanted 2 do after Hi-skool, I was blind.
3 yrs. Later, I still don’t know. Lord give me a sign.
I thot it was this Rap shit, so I got on my grind.
Started putting words 2gether but damn its taking 4ever
Cuz my Success is tuff to find.
Especially, when I yet havent goten da proper Shine(ugh)
But aside from that, I’m doing fine.
I mean, I found this dime.
I mean, I found this girl whos worth much more than jus money& Glory combine.
The type who gives me chills down my spine.
Me & shorty got sumthing good going on this cant B wrong, So I’m
Not gona 4get about this 1 & put her behind
But actually consider of making her mine.
Cuz if I don’t, I wud B fool, now listen.
If I may say, I didn’t always used 2 b this way, I was different.
B Boy used 2 B afraid of commitment.
Now he isnt(huh)
4 those those who thot that knew B
Now U see
I remade myself, this is da new me.
& if u cant respect that
Your whole perspective is wack.
Like when your favorite Rapper raps.
C’mon, u aint really selling crack
Nor have a gat.
U putting up an act.
Like kat williams tryna be a mac.
I’m capable of running circles; Laps, around these kats
Except I don’t do it cuz they don’t deserve being w/me on a Track.
Man, 2 cause an Impact
Give me a hot beat & a 6 pack
& I’ll bring U facts.
Like bringing lyricism Back.
This is where my confusion is at…
How in da world, they get stacks & platinum plaques,
When Passion is wat they lack….
Sumbody tell me da deal
Cuz I was told Real Success is by Real Talent or Real Skill.
So shud I start spitting about things idont mean? 4 I cud see a Mill?
Mayb, then. I cud have that place in da hills
That ive always dreamt about
Nah, I cant take that fake route. Ineeda chill.
U see this soilder has chip on his shoulder, but I know da drill.
never let them see your weakness, they cant b shown.
& why wud I wana fight a Hater, I’m well-grown.
I got problems of my own.
Dog, leave me along
Go fetch a bone.
I’m creating my path in a zone, I Can not B a clone.
Let it me known.,,
They trying to remove B, but I gota see a microphone.
C’mon Dazers apartment is basically like my 2nd Home.
