lyrics

Since my existence, I slowly put myself in a position
To make a difference, I gets it done with lyrics & rhythms
I’m trying to impact those who peep my ill precision
Over beats, so even if your not a fan, you can’t help but listen
Draw you in for just a mili sec, grip steel like the mic is the illest tec
Wield my skill, still learning how to perfect my wreck
You peep the growth from the beginning to now
I got some cats like wow, this dude, I’m diggin his style
But yo, my mental is on another plain, hardly ever seen
And my brain is something that I train to never fall for greed
Through my window I can only see a spec of reality
Eyes closed, I could see different realms in other galaxies
So what I do is for everyone, I put that on everything
I’m not a lime light seeker so you can keep all the fame
And I would love for music to put me comfortably financially
But if it has to be, I have no problems giving you music for free

Through the good & the bad, all the cons & the pros
Dealing with the unknown, it’s gotta be for something right?
All the sacrifices we’ve made in our life
Even dealing with the strife, it’s gotta be for something right?
All the good we’ve ever done, all the bridges that we’ve burn
All the lessons that we’ve learned, it’s gotta be for something right?
Life’s a strange journey, we all go through it
Some more than others but it’s gotta be for something…

Impose my will against those who chose to go against my flow
I know it’s kinda bullish, but I gotta stand behind my growth
Cause what I promote is hope, hard work & integrity
But I’m a man, flaws and all, perfection don’t exist to me
I humbled myself, no more trying to go on a cheddar spree
Spending till the I’m broke, then wonder about the rest of the week
Eat, sleep, breathe, that’s something that I believe in
Maintaining stability, it’s something that I’m now achieving
Grown man mentality, work hard regardless what the salary is
Put effort toward my goal while handling my biz
I got fam in the trenches with me, we were born to get dirty
Filthy fingernails and funk got sweet cats departing early
I’m not a pretty boy, so when things turn and get ugly
I stand my ground, roll with the punches, I know my functions
So as I weather the storm, stay low, shift my weight
Patience is the key to unlock the gate to do great

Through the good & the bad, all the cons & the pros
Dealing with the unknown, it’s gotta be for something right?
All the sacrifices we’ve made in our life
Even dealing with the strife, it’s gotta be for something right?
All the good we’ve ever done, all the bridges that we’ve burn
All the lessons that we’ve learned, it’s gotta be for something right?
Life’s a strange journey, we all go through it
Some more than others but it’s gotta be for something…
