Life come full circle
then throw me off of my square
I tri harder, my quads burning
it’s hard racing in here
the Pentagon ain’t no defense for what they made for me here
threw that hex on me
I’m blessed homie, no doubt, still we in here
They too young to be in that octagon
but still fighting them lions
that’s UFC til they scream out F-U-C the world that I’m writing
that’s out of shape, out of race, out of legs, out of shape
out of time, out of place, next train, outer space
slavery is back, see how they re-nig us, outta spades
kilt reality, gave us V-H-1, let’s see y’all make a way
and that’s how we got chittlings, turn something from nothing
man, that’s how we raise children, if you can’t rap then you nothing
if you can’t twerk then you bunk and you better be humping on something
you going or not, if you going you hoeing, you not, then you nothing
can say what you want but you know it
I say what I see, I see what I live, I live what I feel
I feel what I care, I care about y’all
and y’all with me down here
we all just need some...

Sometimes I drive to work and get on the bus just to watch people
watch them while they watch me, look up and who watch us
everybody got tapped phones, in a minute man we’ll have watches just to watch us
only look up when the stop come, then hop off keep walking
head down, when the last time you saw a man
when the last time you saw a girl but din’t see her butt first
y’all know the curse, that we trying to stop
or don’t even know, I don’t even know which one is worse
ignorance, or not being able to be rid of it
this test feel impossible like the cinnamon
everything here’s legitimate
till you get caught, then you just lie
and hope you get off
I know that I’m losing my flow
it’s plenty of rappers, sometimes I just wanna talk
and know that I’m with somebody who listening (aight, my bad)
riding round the city, make that soundtrack, no self pity
you fall down, life ain’t fair, but you bounce back
ere-time, good music here need air time
and that’s on us, go share this
man somebody gon care
cause everybody need AIR
