But life for me hasn't always been photogenic and perfect
Only I can make my own self determinated
Not a parent, a preacher, a techer, Jesus or verdict
Could overturn this will power that I got burnin'
So deep inside of me, trying unecessary like cursive
And no, my parents aren't divorced, my pops never vanished
They act like since I've always had a granite tops that I take this
Shit for granted, damnit
That isn't further from the truth
Who gives a damn if I was brought up astute
They say, "you don't have the financial problems all these real rappers do
And you ain't even busts caps in dudes"
And just because I have a passion for rappin' the world expects me to?
Now that's the stupidest thing that I've ever heard
I'm just goin' flip 'em the bird
I'm wakin' up in the early mornin' hours a powerful work
Ethic's so unheard of in this day and age
I'll make my way, regardless of the haters hatin'
Envy is a shameful trait, sometimes i feel there's no escape
From the scrutiny and judgements
And really there's not
It's gonna keep comin' as long, as long as the youngin' is buzzin'
Ah, so I just accepted it and laugh
And as much as I love the cash it's so much deeper than that
Being iconics what I'm striving for while sleeping
I snap into a new reality whitin my dreams
And then I wake up to the exact same thing,
Cuz recently my life is flipped 180 degrees
I was never the most confident of my friends
I remember down in my basement Sammy, Big Mikes and Biggs
They made me rap for 'em threatening me with shit if I didn't
Lowkey makin' fun of me as I spit you know how it is
Probably thinking to themselves, "you better stick to your day job"
But now the jokes on them 'cause that's exactly what this is
Yeah, gettin' the types of girls I used to not
Kinda goes to show as an example how I'm used a lot
But no, I'm not complaining cuz no, I don't go the moral
Compass of the Gods, honestly
Sometimes I fuck up, I'm just a human, sometimes I'm out until the sun's up
But that's just how it is when you're young buck
Livin' on my own, only 18
Don't really like the clubs much
I'd rather chill and puff one, but that's beside the fact
Hip Hop head claiming I can't mess with 'em cuz this or that
And they're viners and they have young girls for the fans
But man at least those girls love me for just who I am
I, I guess they'll never understand, it's aight
