lyrics

(Verse 1)
A lot of rappers out here don't know how to act
They be giving opinions like it's a fact
I'm in the shadows with a sniper and a thousand rounds
So if I’m aiming then you’re better off to hit the ground

I'll be the one to bring faith
Like I’m the one who bought the son of God back
Turn me up till the bass makes you wanna smash plates
And you wouldn't even know what to call that

All that shit that you be making that ain’t called rap
I'll be a feature and I’ll take over your whole track
I don’t care for views I’m still making moves
While the rest of you are begging for your soul back

Why you acting clueless to what I’m capable of?
I’ll take a beat like Nicholas Cage and take it's face off
John Travolta rappers writing like it's pulp fiction
Fake as what they say so every songs a contradiction

Your an idiot to think we wouldn't find out
What you think that we don't know the truth?
When you rap about a strap and how you ride out
Even deep down you know that isn’t you

See, why would you lie in your music?
I’ve never understood the point
What happens if you go and lose it?
Will you tell the truth bout your joints?
I doubt it.

(Chorus)
I'm just tryna save me from myself
(cus I’m my own worst enemy)

I'm just tryna save me from myself
(before my ego is the death of me)

I'm just tryna save you from yourself

(Verse 2)
A stable diet of legends telling their story
Got me feeling like the daughter of all these legends before me
Like Jay Z recorded glory I’m proud of what I created
I take the old with the new and I still won't be outdated

People always talk about the greater days
Of Hip Hop and how they watched it fade away
And i don't really understand cus it's still here
It's not done cus the game said it needed change

And I’ve come to switch it up in a major way
Better turn up your volume to hear what I say
I don't want you to forget a single word I said
I raise the dead out of their coffins while you make your bed

My ears are burning so I know these people talking bout me
I won't be happy till I know I’ve overstepped a boundary
A far cry from good byes that I was gonna make
I may not make it but that's just the chance I have to take

Keep the bass hitting like Sonny Liston
So it's an earthquake at all of my shows
I keep it real so that is my distinction,
Yeah I’m keeping you on your toes

When these wannabe's don't even know what hit them
That's just the way that it goes
Better take note of all my flows and my wisdom
Cus you know I’m keeping you on your toes

(Break)
Its getting harder not to say all of these things
What with all the hate it always brings
