lyrics

VERSE ONE
Nah…
Y’all cats don’t get the vision.
Wrong lenses,
no sense of mission.
Busy tossing stacks
into a well. Niggas wishing.
This rap shit saved a nigga’s
life when he was itching
to grab on a belt,
hang it high from the ceiling.
Gang Starr was the first joint
to aid in the healing.
Now I am on a path
to make the kind of songs
that helps young niggas
feel a little less alone.
If you ain’t tryna touch anyone,
what’s the point?
That’s priority uno
when I’m making my joints.
Let the kick drums anoint.
Still chasing that dragon
of the first time I heard “Moment of Truth”.
So, imagine…
It’s 12 year old Lewis
with a Gamecube controller.
Dave Mirra BMX 2.
Guru’s voice takes over.
First time I felt a song
talking to ya boy.
So, right then and there,
I made a choice
to bring the mothafuckin noise.

HOOK (2x)
Y’all cats don’t get the vision.
Ain’t just beats and rhymes
I’m tryna chip in.
Tryna be what saved me
for anyone that listens.
Let the beat of my metronome
guide my ambition.
NAH….

VERSE TWO
They say it’s lonely at the top,
but I’ve never been.
Type of shit some niggas say
when they never win.
Born at the bottom,
and ya boy’s been climbing ever since.
Been here so long,
my ancestor’s fossils demanding rent.
Got me reminiscing
about fictional accolades…
and think why I ain’t
resort to the “click-clack” and “SPRAY”...
I can’t really call it.
Maybe it’s depression
or existential exhaustion
where even waking up feels like
stepping into a coffin.
Crooked busted buck teeth niggas
ain’t ‘posed to fuckin smile.
Mean mugs are what’s on
the menu normally. Gutter child
raised in the slums, so
whatever roasts you throw at me,
I promise that I’m numb.
You can’t say shit meaner
than what I’ve thought about myself.
So, perhaps…
ya boy’s destined to go from rags
to slightly better rags.
I ain’t willing to suck up
to crackers to secure the bag.
Maybe the basement ain’t so bad.
Maybe I’ll make friends with the rats.
They get me.
But nah….

CHORUS (2x)
