lyrics

(Intro)
God forgive the sinner when the winner has her prize
Pride cannot be found when there's a devil deep inside
God forgive the sinner when the winner has her prize
Pride cannot be found when there's a devil deep

(Verse 1)
Every time I plan on releasing another mix tape
I got people in the shadows shouting at me not to fixate
On dreams that I be having on becoming something great
It's like they wanna see me starve with not a morsel on my plate

So I say God forgive the sinner when the winner has her prize
Pride cannot be found when there's a devil deep inside
Hatred from the pit of your stomach is soon to rise
You can see it in my eyes, I'll be stuck in this for life

I got dreams relying on me so that they can take a step
Inside the world to show these other rappers this their final breath
I count my blessings with each day I lay awake and write a song
I'm the reason why music will lose it’s pulse when I’m gone

And I don't mean to be cocky I'm saying it how it is
misunderstood so they don't wanna fuck with the kid
They want a Nicki or Iggy no they ain't looking for content
But you won’t see no skin from me, I learn my lessons from
convents,
I swear.

(Chorus)
And you wonder why I act so cold
When all you ever do is turn me down
You don't wanna see me succeed, never proceed even
though you know I own the crown

And you wonder why I'm so damn cold
When all you ever do is turn me down
You don't wanna see me succeed, never proceed even t
hough you know I own the crown

(Verse 2)
I’ll write my verses with my fingertips of blood on all your walls
Cus you’re not hearing the same rapper that you
heard on 'See me fall'
it's just me and it’s my soul, were both yearning for control
And I'm rocking every mic' I do my thing I'm on a roll

Never should I justify the actions that I take
Cus everything I do, I do for music, every move I make
And I cannot relate if you were born with silver plates
With silver spoons to help you to consume your parents cake

I’m the reason these females rappers are tryna' up their game
Decapitating competition like a helicopter blade
I'll stick that gear in reverse and I'll do that shit all again
For the power and the passion of this ink in my pen

I'd walk the desert like Jesus and I'd go weeks without eating
If that's the only option that I'd have for me to succeed in
This music that's been draining every single shred of life
Just so I could see the planet hear my music for tonight

(Tabanacle verse)
And they wonder why I'm so damn cold
Still here sitting on this old damn road
And thing's will move so damn slow
When you living like us and you’re so damn broke

And I came so far from the start
Out time in the music crafting the art
And they laughed when I started to bar
Now kings want to follow on the path of a star

These days it's getting harder to make it
Everybody saying they a part of the masons
And I waited years for a station to hear my tracks have
Them played through to the nation

I been patient sitting on the sideline watch my friends go
through now I want my time
Everybody saying that they better than me
But not one of them are better when I'm ready with the right rhyme
You want to knock me back try turn me down
Well don't call me back when you heard the sound
it's murder now
They watch me raise up out of the dirty ground

I could of came up model with a chain up
Started from the bottom now they follow am I famous
Everybody's rich everybody's made it
But I ain't seen one of these pricks getting paid yet

And everybody want to do it like Drake did
Or they trying to sound like Mill
But I'm trying to keep my shit Cypress Hill
So I tell them let's B Real

And let's face it unless you’re fucking with the devil you ain't made it
Unless you’re fucking with the levels you ain't never
gonna be no better than these other mc's
that I left in the basement
