Trying to be the greatest, plotting on my strategy
Keep my shit a secret, there’s some things you cannot see.
Open up your schedule, let me in there.
Open book, but I don’t expose everything like swimwear
And now we’re trying to dive in the deep end
Go into a state of contemplation like every weekend
Wondering, how many of us have real friends?
But I notice the sharks in the water, I see the fins
I been grinding for a minute, I want to see the wins.
Haters want to see me trip and fall, then kick my shins
World is moving so fast I might get the spins
Born 2 years before Snoop was talking about juice and gin.
I generally bat above my weight class and my age group
Mr. Shoot Your Shot and we’re necessarily not speaking hoops
Not talking rollercoasters when I been thrown for a loop
They want to assassinate the ascendant that speaks the truth
We fight everyday over what amounts to nickels and dimes
I’m just trying to get everything that God believes is mine
I just want a budget that allows me to dress to the 9’s.
I just want to create change and pick up some dimes
Trying to find the one that deserves that laser focus
Go ahead, make my problems disappear, hocus pocus.
Down in the dumps but I’ll never turn out hopeless
Even if I do big things, I sometimes lack the desire to promote it.
Can’t be green with envy when they award others the gold
Even when you believe you deserve it deep in your soul
The best player doesn’t receive MVP every single season
Ask Michael Jordan, where’s Lebron when you need him?
I just roll with the winners, get introduced to the winner’s circle
Sticks and stones break bones but words are still hurtful
This ain’t even the main event, I’m just going through dress rehearsals
Until the understanding of my excellence is universal.
