(Verse 1) Let’s do it You witnessing the life of a survivor Turned wrongs to right the theme of my life, still every day’s a fight A struggle trying to bubble But tough to win through troubled winds Please believe me, I wish life was more breezy Not necessarily easy, ‘cause trials plus error Equals perseverance you can measure A buried treasure And I know the game is to be sold not told but some of y’all value that fool’s gold See that’s a little fame, and that’s a little fortune but the bond with your homies you sold it at the auction The nerve of these dudes, you better move with caution I’ve seen jealousy fire back too often This is so awkward, I try to lead by example The principals of what a man should do Keep it real with your peers, you see that’s the rule Yo I thought it’s oh so easy to catch the jewel, but (Chorus: Ad Libs) Just tell me, what happened I don’t understand I drop knowledge, you should pick it up man Ok (Verse 2) Yeah See I don’t know either, you got a little fever So you trap all your peeps in a room full of ether But give me one chance to teach ya Just because you hot, don’t make you invincible, believe bruh Yessir, Floe got the best words They say revenge on ice is how it’s best served And that’s what my comrades heard So we fall back and chill, plotting before we get ill It ain’t all about the dollar bill ‘cause them greenbacks don’t mean jack and ain’t the reason for the attack It’s when loyalty gets hijacked You let it crash and burn, so now it’s your turn The sabotage is camouflaged, grab the head nigga in charge Manhandle him, stiching him and bandage him The nerve while we beating his ass, pleading There’s just one question I have to ask (Chours: Ad Libs 2) What question, you serious? Nah, stop playing man I don’t wanna hear that Whatever (End)

(Intro: Jon Bibbs) Keep your head to the sky (Repeat x 2) (Verse 1) Yeah, ready for a newer day, ready to view the way In the midst of surprise is where the rude awake He used to sleep on the wrong side of the bed Instead, switched to the right side, and opened his bright eyes Sick of the game, sick of the pain of feeling like it’s ok to be slain 10th grade, once again, doors are full of chains Glock found, school on lockdown, everyone stop now bring in the cops (wow), patrolling the hallways all day in his hood, all same Mad guns and drugs, yo the scene is bugged How can a 15 year old rise above They all knowing he smart, but they hide the love They think he’ll just fail, if he try to budge But why all of a sudden he wanna reach the top? His momma told him “baby just don’t stop” You better keep… (Chorus: Jon Bibbs) Keep your head to the sky (keep it up yall keep it up to the sky, sky, sky, sky, yeah) (Repeat) (Verse 2) Aye yo, ready for another night, and feeling all right Lounging, bumping The Undefined’s “Moonlight” A college bound senior, making believers out of naysayers girlfriends be screaming “hey player” Cutting class for kats whose straight hypocrite with slick talk, and a business card from VistaPrint Scheming to make a star out of the hour glass figure But this girl is thinking much bigger While her friends steady choosing between hate or love she falls back, she already seen “Player’s Club” so kill that strip tease, you ain’t gonna trick me I’m trying to make a career that fits me So the boys call her names, girls call her lame Losing her best friends for fake fame So as the tears run down her cheek she’s getting weak But she ain’t never meeting defeat She’s gonna keep… (Chorus x 2) (Verse 3) Aye yo, and to the woman trying to get out the house Feeling there’s no way out, getting abuse by a spouse and all you hear is negative out his mouth But the truth is this ain’t what love is all about To them dudes cooking it up in the kitchen wanting out of the game, but needs someone to listen Before another brother becomes a victim Let him strive while alive, gotta share a little wisdom To those living in fear and you can hardly take it when your entire family’s saying you’ll never make it From grandmas to in-laws been sore ‘cause your thoughts ain’t never been poor, get yours To Floe Almighty, keep dropping real verses I need encouragement too my dude, I ain’t perfect Patience and your greatness will soon surface When you manifest your destiny, it’s all worth it (Chorus x 5) (End)

If they was nice, they would be in my place rocking shows state to state Busting nuts in every groupie ho face But they not, they stuck behind a laptop screen 9 to 5ing, surviving, while I’m living my dream So sick that my 16s are keeping my lights on Flew back from Beaverton, free pair of Nikes on Pray for my downfall, I ain’t slipping Passport stamped up, nigga I ain’t tripping Fuck y’all, so what you don’t like me Get online and spite me I’ll make another joint like Spike Lee Get in my lane, run you over like Frogger Wack niggas who failed as rappers became bloggers Am I wrong?

When the ball hog now’s my one and only friend? Or when the coach treats me like I’m less than a man? Man, it can’t be planned Yo I wonder when it’s time to exit How will I stand, how will I feel When I look over to my fam Will I still see love in the eyes of my fans? Only thing I can do is be comfortable With the figure in the mirror Making sure my mind’s clearer And even if I never see the Hall of Fame I wouldn’t change anything yo I love the game (Chorus: Ad Libs 3) All the sacrifice, all the hard work All the dedication, all the time and the effort man In the end yo, it’s been real, it’s been hard But I just love it man I love this game yo (End)

(Intro) Yeah, aye Wheels man When I heard this joint right here The pen just hit the pad man Real quick like I don’t know if it’s gonna be on the album I don’t really care man I just had to express my feelings man Deep down inside, yeah, check this out (Verse 1) You got, brothers outside, trying to stay alive But nobody truly understands how they feel inside Similarities of when Jesus was crucified But his form of resurrection is suicide Now who am I, not the religious type But I learn from life, hoping to keep my spirit right So here’s the light, take it in spite of all your hand-me-downs from your family tree Just follow E ‘cause on the inside, I know you sit and hide I know you stay satisfied with just getting by I know you’ve been told you shouldn’t ask God why But nobody notices all your hard tries So the tears fly, the doves cry But your principal, keep them invisible You fail to excel and it gets to you But you keep it bottled up How did it gets so full You better drain away the pain So hazardous on the brain, a Molotov flame It’s all a game Now your reality’s needing a case quarter Robbery, Manslaughter Kidnap, click clack, from North Cock-It-Back To your neck of the woods, nah it ain’t all good New neighbors in your hood Community turns to Fed Land Cop shots blaming the crime on a dead man (Chorus: Carlitta Durand) Relations change and pave the way Decisions lead to the path we take Always asking whose to blame You made your way, it’ll never change (Repeat) (Verse 2) So now we outside, living worldwide On the front line, battling for the grand prize And it’s simply to have the power to decide What to do with my own life Travel on a soul flight Beyond race, gender, and class I see so much we can explore Leave your inhibitions at the door Right next to your wallet This is how we make a real prophet, with logic You knock this? Well you ain’t understand yo Everybody won’t grasp it, but maybe your man though Each One Teach One, like father to son Or even like son to father when the father didn’t bother Maybe the father was wilding, conniving The streets keep his 4-5 live with no jiving Drugs keep the nostrils plugged, nose diving Took the most dangerous plunge and stroke idling And why is it when brothers get caught They blame it on just him, it’s all his fault See it’s more than just right vs wrong How about weak vs strong A fake king vs a designated pawn Now it’s your move, but see really the pawns rule They got power to strategize how all march through So it starts with you And if he don’t understand the power of one Yo I don’t blame son (Chorus x 2) (Break: Ad Libs) Sometimes you gotta just express yourself man Just get it out, you know what I’m saying? I don’t even know if kats are gonna understand this track right here But I do know there’s a lot of people out there Worldwide that just don’t want to deal with the Everyday 9 to 5s And the everyday modern world activities So if you got something deep down inside man That may not be the norm It may not be what everybody else may be thinking Express it man, express yourself You never know what you can accomplish man This is what I call “The Realest Talk”, yeah (Chorus x 2, then Slow Chorus) (End)
