I will wage war against these norms
can't suffer my efforts to bring forth bad fluid fruit
like we drain the slums
can't falter the wage she wants
age will not constrain his hunts
rapid fire from rabid hire,
get and loose a job anytime they choose to lay u off
Yet again you lost, but guess who won.
these rappers sugar coating on a deeper level
a different devil we face whenever they kill a rebel
captain told me to skip the pushing and move to action
stir the waters, open the capsule, see fools reactions
They'll be like "who even asked him"
"always boasting in his captions"
"If he had opinions i wonder would you back him"
we went back and forth as we talked
about how the background is cursed
so we fight for rights on the cusp of survival against the cops
like we doing it for the praise!
would you rather debate your race in a Mercedes or a Porsche?
I'm proud of my growth and pace...
I've got piece of mind by his grace
i do whatever it takes
the fact I'm already great
must give your pillars the shakes
disgrace is all on your face
you told me I made a lot of mistakes
so i regrouped and corrected myself
as for sm ep, I just had to test myself
had to relate with the times
how long did this take to design ?
had a choice to be great or divine
it's like being offered grape for the wine
only here to correct the mistakes to your mind
so much fate in the grind
and if you talk shit I might take out your spine
or split an adjective in half
then stick the sharp end of it's branch into ur narcissism
please don't get me started.
usually I'm outspoken only when I'm getting therapy
share my feelings with my therapist and tell her please
don't compare me to patients who need a shrink
i have have been very broke now finally I get the cheese
you go woke so they wonder if u ever slipped
yes I've been down in ignorance
they should have never mixed brown skin with frowns
The outcome is too much arrogance how come they find him tolerant
I'll tell you why
I put soul into lifeless words, alphabetical vessels
put your feelings in circles in motion and in loopholes
devotional with two quotes
dysfunctional systems, screwed up and missing a few bolts
my rational told me stake out, been given the full scope
have it penetrate their thoughts, have it elevate their pulse
Mess with poetry in rap until heart's beat rate ran past
the streets you praise
snap back if you loose your faith, branch out and begin ur chase
you better stay true to your feelings and don't stray off on this path
but use anger, to wage war against these norms
don't suffer your efforts to bring forth bad fluid fruit
like you drain the slums
don't falter the wage you want
age will not constrain your hunts
rapid fire from rabid hire,
get and loose a job anytime they choose to lay you off
yet again you lost, but guess who won
