Nothing was the same, including the lifestyle that I lead.
Niggas throwing shade at me, do they expect me to receive?
The haters say I’m bogus, I give no fucks, you know this.
Have you niggas screaming like the sample on “Otis”
Check out my oasis, got a driver’s license for the spaceship
I swear I score, without having to run the bases
I dodge the bullshit like I’m Mayweather in the ring
Be careful what you believe because nothing’s what it seems
I promise I’m focused, my haters done made it real clear.
No matter my success, still won’t be respected proper here
Moving money around like I racketeer, there’s no brackets here
Life’s not a game so there’s no playoffs for my payoff
So I just got to plan for the payback, you get that?
I’m like the most skillful mouse, I get cheese and dodge traps
This shit is crafted perfectly, no interest in struggle raps
You sleeping on me? Well, I call that shit a struggle nap
Scarface said the world is yours, it’s mine for the taking.
Chances don’t come around twice, you gotta go and take it
Cake doesn’t come outta nowhere, you gotta go and bake it.
Which means someone has to put the time in to make it
I been real for way too long to remember how to fake it
I’m like a struggling hospital, sometimes I ain’t got no patients/patience
Considering holding a press conference to answer questions
You treat life like a game, better watch out for misdirection
Better watch out for the counter play
Before everyone wonders what happened to you like J. Holiday
Every day ain’t a solid day, life has its ups and downs
Life has its smiles and frowns, sometimes you win in a blowout
Other times you lose like the Cleveland Browns
Don’t let it get you down, keep your chin up now.
My ex girl saying she’s trying to become a pin up now
Gotta stop waiting until the last minute to have prayers to send up now
They say it ain’t worth it, I know I ain’t perfect.
But you gotta be blind to state that you don’t see me working.
I been through earth, wind, and fire. Like the 70’s came back.
I step up to the plate, hit a grand slam like Denny’s came back
I have nothing up my sleeves, like the lacrosse pennies came back
They say I got the magic, like my homie Penny came back.
Trust nobody, my heart’s been fragile, don’t love nobody
If you ain’t family and I mean true family, you don’t have the right to rush nobody
Perfection takes time though. Avoiding bright lights like I’m albino
The spotlight comes anyway, people questioning me on what I know
Who will survive though? The slaughterhouse known as America
There’s a sizeable portion of the population that still wants to bury us.
Won’t let their white daughters marry us, think that they carry us
And believe that most of us are on a combo of crack and fairy dust.
So I gotta do better, we gotta do better.
Because they said birds of a feather, often flock together.
