Iím sitting at the edge of my bed and Iím fed
Up with negative thoughts running straight through my head
Lifeís ready and I canít make movesitís hard
And I thought it would have been nice to buy papa dukes some shoes
Niggas try to get overpressure on my shoulders
Dropped the fat lp in í91 of october
Now that Iím older and my man pops is gone
My focus is strongermom pick up your headgotta move on
Do you remember mr. j used to say the beats was fat
But when it comes to businessnigga donít play
I look beyond all this stress to seek fate
Mad homicidesunemployment rates sky high
Shorty busting capscops caught him out there
Daytime drama and his mama didnít care
Thatís why I should be rapping and packing pistols on the bully
But niggas be stressing me and I ainít paid in fully
So Iím dropping something fatternot for props
Weíre respecting the matterhops
Iím fatcheck my statsprince drops data for me and my man pops
Rolls-royce and myself are always getting mad harassed by the cops
So now Iím in the chop shop creating masterpieces
So it donít matter money what my funny label releases
Thanks to the streets and my peeps that made me
And the la-la-leela-la-lee
We gotta maintain (repeat 8x)
Now itís been saaaaaaaaaaida grown man ainít supposed to cry
So whyyyyyyare there tears inside my eyes?
I wake up in the morningget some new problem
I just canít solve íem
Yoextreme kidIím telling you manIím on the brink of ? ? ?
Whoís that man in the mirror? ha!
The pictureís getting clearer and clearerha!
The end is coming nearer and nearerha!
Take a good look at what you fearha!
Time marches on and itís a new song
Itís a new morningitís a new dawn
Feet donít fail me nowI got to make it to the studio someway somehow
But I need a little bit of nourishment first
I stop at the store to quench my thirst
Why are they watching me buy my juice?
Why must they clock my buy my juice?
Just give me my change and please put my change in my hand
Man would you listen to me if I didnít have a tan?
All you have to do is show some decency
But you want to bring out the beast in me
Papa always told me...be all you can be
And maintaingotta maintain
(ad-libs to end)
