lyrics

(Verse 1)
I'm a stranger to my city streets I'm rolling through the country
I don’t need to see the pavement when this evergreen is comfy
It's greener on this side of mine and everything is blooming
Your side is all polluted and people are time consuming

My third eye has a target locked, further than these city blocks
I long to see my vision come to life my faith cannot be rocked
I'm a staple to this stable diet of rapping history
How the numbers fall at such a pace is still a mystery

You abandon such a high rise spirit raising to high tides
Compelling story tellers telling stories on these late nights
Magic on these verses miracles on these beats
All started because people hated life out on the streets

40 years of Hip Hop there’s nothing stopping us now
The legends looking down at us so we can make them proud
Never stop the hustle if the hustle is for music
Feed your every aura and don’t ever try defuse it

(Chorus)
Everything I do, I do it cus I can do it and you can do it to
These thoughts, are all in your mind
Everything I do, I do it cus I can do it and you can do it to
These dreams, will happen in time

(Verse 2)

Call me a liar if you want to
When you find out it's true it's gnna be me that you run to
Asking how I knew it, how did I predict it
I'll tell them it's from knowledge that my brain became addicted

To, how many times I have to warn you all before you listened?
I seen a lot of things that have helped encourage my vision
And Transitions, all I needed was some patience
Like a doctor with an empty surgery I needed patients

And look I waited long enough, it's tough as it is
and these people are not showing love,
They don't appreciate the things I have to say
Even if they helped them make it through another day

Well ima say them anyway and they can listen if they want
I'm underlining all the faults and being bold just like the font
Look at all these lames tryna rhyme up on a track
Your gnna break the cup of knowledge if you’re listening to that

(Verse 3)
I’m watching interviews and thinking "Yo I’m into doing that!"
I wanna change your way of thinking as you listen to me rap
People always telling me my fate is overdue
Looking in the mirror wishing I was sober too

I'm lost inside this miracle that they be calling life
Calling up my memories to see if their alright
I'm tryna find some common ground with anybody else
Cus right now I’m just feeling like I'm talking to myself

And these cells all around me feel like I'm behind the bars
With my poker face you'll never know I hold the strongest cards
People don't believe me when I tell them I'm the shit
But there’s a gaping hole when they try take me out the mix

I got Greezy making beats that your producer couldn’t top
You better listen when it drops so you can get it while it’s hot
I won’t ever try to brag just tryna make these haters mad
At the fact I achieved all the things their wishing that they had
