lyrics

Verse One:
Been dreaming of a comeup,
it’s time to get it
seeing through the darkness,
chronicles of Riddick
never needed a Secret Santa
to tell me I was gifted
gathered that from my mother’s love
and my aunts’ incentives
far from a hobby this my life’s work,
no time for the brouhaha or the circle jerks
from the home of the Supermodel,
where Miley learned to twerk
I was bred in the struggle,
created in the earth
keep your car fax on life,
I been knew my worth
anything you ever needed
was right inside of you
endless possibilities coupled
with the see through
so I’m sought after like
a pair of True Blues, that's deadstock
fresh as the culture I represent (hip-hop)
where billions are being made
but few make sense (cents)
I was formed in the past
but live in the present tense
here to stick it out and
rise above it all like incense

Hook:
I got my mind right, spirit right
braving the storm/
victory's in my clutches
while I'm singing this song/
I got my body right, spirit right
creating the calm/
accolades or not, feeling like a champ-ion/

I got my mind right, spirit right
braving the storm/
victory's in my clutches
while I'm singing this song/
I got my body right, spirit right
creating the calm/
awards or not, feeling like a champ-ion/

Verse Two:
between flows and shows
seen a lot of cats come and go
gotta strike while the iron’s hot
and climate’s optimal
not supreme mathematics
I been above average
making systems bump daily
while staying proactive
what chu outchea pursuing?
you giving it yo all?
ushered myself into the majors
so you don’t have to call,
on my behalf or use yo staff
to verify my persistence
raw talent versus crafted stars
you can tell the difference
unplug from the matrix
so you recall an instance,
where the rhymes you heard were felt
and completely non fiction
you been simpin in yo pimpin
lacking where there was action
my tread is road tested
and I never lacked traction
the common denominator,
raw rhyme regulator
determined to make an impact
bull headed like Paxton
adjective for A.C. Slater
for anyone who’s asking
fiends crave the real
and I scream satisfaction

Repeat Hook x2
