The cause, I never need no applause
We trying to do it different in a world full of SAME
Wannabes get thrown over, bored of the culture
We trying to add sprinkles to a world full of PLAIN
Hmmm, the violence of youngins becoming soldiers
Til they shot up, I got up this morning
Who you calling LAME?
I'm a product of productivity
Who you calling STRANGE?
I'm on 26th, calling collect, calling for CHANGE?
Call His name
Foolish as Cupid
My music is Kubrick and Kane
Kubla Khan on the dome of Xanadu, a poet saying
Anything is Possible
Oh, they want I should dumb it down?
A gram'll get you 15 years, so who the dummy now? (for that?)
We all the same, running like running backers
Knowing its pointed at us, just praying we ain't Bo Jackson
'less it's Tecmo, I don't see no controller this ain't no game
That's why I kick it off with no little cost, im a boss in this city,
I seen some things I just need (the space) to explain

Sears Tower in my eyes this is drillmatic
Tears running down my eyes yo I'm still at it
The Resurrection of real rappers who stopped rapping
Adrenaline Rush running through me, I feel Magic
that’s Southside in my blood, 106 Jamming
Dave and Melle Mel and Da Brat was our favorite chick then
until our Final Tic we forever be conflicted
by God and cold women
who(se) stroll expose venom
but soul expose wisdom
in flows we hold victims, but who are we?
if we just ride, in the back like Do or Die
Picture This and Funkdafied
106, the birthday line "Who's this?" man it’s all flooding right back to me
like react to me
man my childhood weigh on me like the weight on me
trying to keep it and lose it
but picking and choosing what you remember only dismember
like New Edition, Tribe, Death Row
I’m ALIVE, that mean whatever happened
don’t kill me, just help my DRIIVE…
so I put that in my rearview now
Optimist Prime, that’s just how I feel right now

It’s the return of the 3rd verses for rappers who
scared of being irrelevant
live and die by the hook, you already irrelevant
nobody like you, they just see how you easy money
you take that as a compliment, you dying with confidence
you embarrassing
and ain’t nobody showed you, where your friends at?
who told you this was heaven, you can spend that
or lose it in a second
anything worth having, don’t fit in a bag
grab it, and it disappears
ain’t nobody listening here!
Ain’t nobody listening…(man, tell me how you feel right now)
madder than Bill O’Reilly, Camron caught me being a racist
I’m madder than eating a Now and Later with your braces
I’m madder than, internet trolls, get at you faceless
you mad cause you wanna be famous and rich
but lazy and stiff
and angry…and wonder why nobody mess with you
maybe it’s YOU baby, and maybe it’s YOU crazy
or maybe we ALL haters, ALL HATERS indeed, for real
