If U Down
The rain is pouring, pain is going on in my life.
Reason I write, same reason why drinkers go buy a pint.
Dark clouds attack the light that is within me
Struggle is neverending, prayer is what some recommend me
I'm 5'9, but when I rhyme.. Feel like I'm 10 feet tall
Laying the law thru these bars, I put my life's cause
Many be dumb downed clowns, see I don't like yall
Hit 'em with the permanent pause, "what do YOU fight for"
Your car, your chain.. Its all the same. You call it game, boring my brain.. The fraudulent way
I can't feel what ur saying, cuz the balance is off
Faking like u don't have a heart wit all the violence u talk
I guess u can't crack a smile anymore,
so I guess its gotta be war,
24/7 weapons gotta squeeze off, n*gga nahh
That is a plan within a plan, my man..
Destruction is in demand, and Uncle Sam is a fan.. Yeah
Hearts frozen, why do we be on that cold sh*t,
We used to be cultured, influenced by the vultures they've been scoping, analyzing with a motive
Its.. like we've been tied up with an invisible rope and
Them jails open, they get paid when they put month in-side, kinda currupt.. Its time for us to just expose them
Its wild, especially when ur skintone's brown, but right now we boutta turn it around
U wit me? Hit me if u down..
Of course I've walked with what my ancestors fought for
Heart full of passion. Want more, start at ground floor, still..
Remain becuz of yall we make it sound raw..
I thank allah. For me to try to paint a song that is a cure till the pain is gone
Fruits of my labor may be ripe, cuz I've been waiting for 'em
Seems like a lifelong task, walking on this path
Many be cheating, but my dad.. He was a honest man
Plus bout his cash, getting it becuz he worked hard
And to my moms, they call it labor, that was WORK yall
Since birth, searched the earth for what I'm worth, money??
Is paperweight, cannot equate to what my life study
Has told me, go beyond all the stars up in the sky
The gift of rhymes, that is the place I chose to emphasize
Just a sign maybe, my light is not fading
I was born to shine greatly, on the rise trynna break free
Hit me, if you're down & out.. Wilding's not the route u need to be taking
N*ggaz be waiting to throw they hate in, frustration be incubating Inside, times are tense. So I write rhymes with sense
Why, becuz it aint to many of yall that doing this
My influences, came before they ruined this.. Foolishness, Ringtone, Computer Chip, Champ, I'm not new to this
I prove what I say thru the way that I relay
I don't break, standing time's test, and making that progress
And I'm on my job. Yes, indeedy
Yall greedy, while I got less
make it sound monstrous
Break it down in portion
It all fits together, I remember my beginnings while I'm winning, cuz forgetting brings the ending close
Folks forget, get on some brand new sh*t
The movements, still in motion like Munch & Matthew & them
Ups, I've had a few of 'em
Downs, I've had to..
But whenever I think of my mission, I feel I have to ascend, fin..
