Thought I was clear for the victory lap but I had to take a detour
People really think this is a game but do they really wanna keep score?
I don’t consider myself the bomb but I am blowing up like C4
And they know I stay on my grind like I found me a new skateboard
People throwing so many shots at me, I need some protection
They think they can teach me something, they need a new lesson?
People are experts at blocking their own blessings
If life’s a salad, I want the green. Y’all worried about the dressing
Just when they think they have the answers, I change all the questions
The feds is watching now a days, got to give them misdirection
Men talk more than women these days, let that just sink in
Throw shade behind your back and get in your face and pretend
The way the climate is now a days, I don’t even know how to act
Would I be fake for speaking to the person I know is talking behind my back?
But if I didn’t speak, someone would say I’m being petty
This shit got my mind racing like I’m Mario Andretti
Excuse me, that’s just a false alarm, this the same way y’all treat LeBron
Slander his name, all these years and act like you’ll miss him when he’s gone
I don’t really have hate in my heart but maybe I should reconsider
Because y’all say some crazy shit but when y’all got a little liquor
Afraid that someone might try to bring the second coming quicker
Afraid that my white friends might refer to me as nigger
If I say what’s really on my mind, I’ll burn bridges
If I only speak facts, people may still get livid
But that’s the life I chose, the life I lead, people place their burdens on me
Too many people done heard about me, overanalyzed like Jadaevon Clowney
But shoutout to Michael Sam, being the first is always hard
It’s hard remaining the nice guy when people try to pull your card
You take shots at me? You’re famous. I reply back? I’m brainless
I guess that’s one of the ways that you know you really “made it”
Drag my name through the mud and we’ll see if I come out stainless
Had to hit ‘em with the Heisman, I learned that from Jameis
I tried to “kill ‘em with kindness” but they didn’t fucking die
Even when their attacks failed, they still wanna try.
Sometimes people want to destroy you simply for being at the top
They recognize your power and they want that to stop
But it’s up to you not to let them, make decisions, don’t regret them
And don’t pray for positive things, you gotta expect them.
Minus the bullshit, life’s still great. I thank God for giving me faith
Living life in the fast lane? You might wanna pump your brakes
People trying to block my blessing, had to give them the pump fake
With all this conversation about “fruits” niggas must have sour grapes
And I swear success is addicting, you would know if you had a taste
A couple girls think I’m out of this world but they the same girls I want to give me space
Life isn’t fair, I learned that from a young age
Me and some people ain’t in the same book, let alone on the same page
Sometimes, Life throws obstacles in the middle of your path
So I had to take this detour but I’m gonna get right back.
