I’m back at it
This is that Chicken Soup for the Soul of the rap addict,
I’ve tried to kick it like a bad habit,
Explained the mathematics, 1 in a billion,
Just laughed at it, said I’m 1 in a trillion.
I ain’t even in it for the millions,
Poverty can come,
I can stay obsolete to everyone under the sun,
Still gotta get these lyrics spun.
Woven red rum, killin’ the beat from the keys to the drums,
Sounds easy enough,
But speakin’ is tough,
And meanin’ is even harder with these demons above and below,
But I can’t let it show.
Made this all for you, so you could see the true me flow.
Give a little hope,
For brighter futures, forgiveness, and a new spring’s growth
So listen close and maybe we’ll both discover somethin’ new.
Or at the very least remember a forgotten truth.
This is that soul music,
That old music,
That let everything go music,
That make your heart feel whole music,
That soul music.
I fell in love with music,
‘cause the pictures painted through it,
Heartache, pain, beauty and every human musin’,
Life’s a puzzle with more facets than a Rubix,
Ruthless, melodies just therapeutic acoustics,
Let me see through the illusion: back stage.
Halfway to famous after this rampage,
Who woulda guessed I’d find this pathway?
Took ten long years, lotta driftin’ lost like a castaway,
Now I’m back to stay,
Doesn’t matter if I “make it,” Imma say what I have to say,
This is a game that I have to play,
No way I’m fadin’, waited long enough to let this passion stray,
Now it’s captain slashin’ through the crashin’ waves.
I tried every shortcut, and get rich quick scheme,
Only thing that worked came from the heart, not the slick dreams,
Want it all you want, until you love it’s not enough,
Man you have to face the downs ‘fore you get to see the ups.
Man I told you 2016’d be the year that I killed it,
Set a goal for myself and fulfilled it,
Know y’all feel it,
But that doesn’t show the road and the pain,
The decade of struggle ‘fore I rose to the occasion,
The frustration and anger,
Late nights and tired fingers,
All the times I tried to give up ‘cause I wasn’t major.
All the progress movin’ slower than the slowest glacier,
Wasn’t like I woke up a game changer.
So this is for the struggle,
The grind, and the hustle
Starting over, pickin’ dreams out the rubble,
This is for the times that I fumbled ‘fore I even saw the end zone,
So many Ls, don’t need Urkel to get my wins low.
This is my memorial to the time spent,
So I can never forget how my life went.
Seen too many stars who forgot where they started,
My fire came from the heart, still be the same on the red carpet.
