Track Name: Blessings
She was half black half white eyes kind of blue grey
He was about to lose his job but fought and got a new raise
Thank God they can finally move in a new place
After 10 years at the 10th floor elevator broken every 2 days
See this is for to the warriors who never lose faith
It’s never too late fuck what you say
Reminiscing Fugees and the Wu days
When I had to be reminded of the toothbrush and the toothpaste
My father wasn’t satisfied with the number 2 place
I guess that’s why I’m determined not to lose man
Plus I got more to talk about
Than my new rims and my new chain
This is for the kids who never packed a suitcase
I’ve been in pain and I’ve seen pain
Our situation’s like a beggar ‘cause it needs change

Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got
Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got

Just lost my car in a fucking stupid accident
Just lost a good girl ‘cause all I cared about was smashing it
When it rains it pours I can’t be mad at this
So I’m bumping Jaheim to remind me that I’m fabulous
I’m shooting for the stars trying to pull the right triggers
‘Cause looking back on my future past
I wanna see some nice pictures
And I won’t judge you but you ain’t gotta be a part time stripper
They throw kids in this world with no direction like a blind pitcher
I been doing this for years and I’m still not a dime richer
You can have talent on your team but time is not with you
It’s funny how I use to believe in Santa Claus and shit
And now just believing in myself is like a constant quiz
Sometimes I’m feeling down sometimes I’m confident
I can’t fight death but I can fight for the life I wanna live

Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got
Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got

If life is a movie let me keep the footage
So I can look back on all the work I’ve put in
The choices I made and can I see what else I could’ve been
Have I gotten close to what I should’ve been
It’s funny how today’s losers use to be the coolest kids
‘Cause back then you either knew how to fight or had the newest shit
Needles on the floor you learn about what they do with this
Yo what’s up with the people that I grew up with
Let me see what they’ve become
Oh shit they got a son
They’ve been together since high school they got that love
What’s up with him for real he’s still on the run
Can’t believe she got that position use to be so dumb
Damn all these people never left the block
Damn she became a cop
Yall need to stop me I can go on and on
Shit that shit can make a song of its own

Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got
Count your blessings don’t expect anything from God
We keep pushing making moves ‘till the day we die
And if one day they see us at the top
Tell ‘em we fought for every single thing we got
Track Name: Shortcut To Fame
Life is hard like a single mother raising sons
Trying to change the system with a 16 I ain’t talking ‘bout a famous gun
But will I rise amongst the fakes and punks
I’m trying to be realest alive before I try to be the greatest one
But they don’t understand my plan so they question
Why don’t you try to get a buzz in the States or someth’
I tell ‘em I was born and raised in Paris so this is where the fuck I’ma make it from
I’m in a race, a hunt
Waiting to make the jump
And today is June first aka my favorite month
She told me no man ever made her cum
If this is a challenge I would love to take up this one
But if at first I don’t succeed can I dust myself off and try again
I said if at first I don’t succeed can I dust myself off and try again
Try again

My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that
My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that

I’m trying to make you think positive when life is feeling horny
And remind you where you come from when the weather’s no longer stormy
Always had a lot of respect for those who came before me
My brother told me if you wanna touch people tell stories
I value recognition more than glory
But will I change if I make it shortly
Who knows what type of person I’ll be when I’m forty
And am I being hypocritical when I say
That money’s not the motivation but the icing on the cake
Afraid to be misunderstood
‘Cause I don’t really come from the burbs and I don’t really come from the hood
Of course I welcome cash like most people would
But still I don’t think I’d buy this even if I could
I grab the mic and let the passion speak
Fuck the haters hate is something that I’m sad to see
But still I listen listen I don’t rap for me

My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that
My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that

I am my strongest challenger
Living a double life I think I need a second calendar
I’m 25 feeling like I’m 38 this ain’t a metaphor for caliber
I’m on my way to success just give me loyalty and you can be a passenger
Life is a biaatch I ain’t really trying to flatter her
The more I grow the less I give a fuck that’s why I’m smiling for
You did me wrong I won’t forget but I ain’t mad at ya
So many people won’t let the past go like Attica
You see I woke up today
Eager to start working but in this day and age
Everybody’s looking for a shortcut to fame
Didn’t break a sweat but want the whole fucking thing
I’m sad for the next generation it’s a shame
All the things you dreamed of being but you never became
‘Cause life’s a lot harder than the life they portray

My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that
My mind is a war zone I’m trying to find the white flag
Wanna make it but my soul doesn’t come with a price tag
And life’s a bitch I write her love letters but she never writes back
Baby do you like it like that
Track Name: No Open Door
Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war
Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war

They say change is coming but they ain’t saying from where
They’re pretending they’re bluffing they really don’t care
‘Cause there’s no rain above ‘em so fuck what happens over there
They call it life or bad luck when we call it unfair
See between the rich and the poor there’s a world I don’t call it a gap
They got more power than us but still they stab us in the back
30 years of loyal services they got the nerve to treat you like trash
And if you got nobody to support you your house will turn into a bag
See money rules the globe to a point where socialism is a bad word
Plus half of us don’t vote so what we go through doesn’t really matter
Life is a bitch but I ain’t mad at her
Bullshit is bullshit even if they bring it to you on a silver platter
And the few who make it from the bottom to the top are quick to kick the ladder

Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war
Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war

Individualistic society is an oxymoron
Don’t call this conscience rap call it a love song
See I ain’t mad at you getting money but the way you act is so wrong
You got it you can buy it but the consequences you ignore
‘Cause Scarface was a liar man the world ain’t yours
Stopping an earthquake is not something you can pay for
See we’re all equal in front tragedy in front of God
So we all need each other whether you like it or not
That’s why we call it a society and not a jungle
But they’ve turned it into a place where you try to see the other stumble
It’s about what you do and don’t do other than that nobody hates you
It’s about dignity and justice not about begging for your paper
To have a chance to make even if we weren’t favored by nature

Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war
Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war

I ain’t trying to kick knowledge I ain’t trying to sound smart
This shit ain’t coming from my brain shit is coming from my heart
I wanna be good citizen but why would I vote at all
When the pen that writes checks is the one that writes laws
See we save banks with our taxes but who saves us
They like to blame rappers politicians showing fake love
But we get paid for making music you get paid to change stuff
It maybe changing for them but it ain’t changing for us
Keep thinking y’all can backstab us we’re getting laced up
And people telling me it’s just the way it is
But I believe in throwing up a fist I believe in men
I believe I’m not the only one believing in this
And I believe in a different definition for rich
We had enough love Obama but
I believe in changing things from the bottom up

Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war
Having enough to feed your family is it too much to ask for
Looking around and there’s no open door
See the rich gets richer off the poor
Why don’t we let the president go to war
Track Name: The One
I hadn’t seen her since junior high
She told me she was single and I don’t care if it’s the truth or not
Back then she was the shit and she didn’t lose her spot
Fine sexy super hot
Telling me how she went through a lot
We talked for a minute messing with her reminiscing
Then dropped her off at her crib and got ambitious started kissing
Sorry I was tired of listening and by the way your lips are just delicious
She started smiling blushing then continued her discussion
Like it was nothing
Now fast forward all the movies dinners and the hugging
And now we’re fucking
Kiss her on the stomach cussing messing up the covers
And now she’s cumming
The sex was wild
Made her lose a pound sweating like crazy here’s the towel
Calms down laying down looking at me with a smile
Telling me she hadn’t felt like that in a while

Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein
Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein

We’re both coming out of a relationship
Basically just messing around and she’s not hating it
You know the wanna be alone nothing serious the basic shit
Put it to sleep I’m in deep she’s a freak and she’s not faking it
But she ain’t a bitch or a hoe a favor for a favor I respect her
So in addition to the sex we started hanging out together
But that’s where I fucked up and wasn’t very clever
‘Cause see after doing this for like a month
Now she’s having a little more than just fun
And wishing I would do a little more than just make her cum
Telling me maybe baby maybe you’re the one
Girl
It’s not that I don’t like you that you’re not my type
And I didn’t want to mislead you by being nice and polite
I love women so I always treat ‘em right
But sorry baby I ain’t looking for a wife

Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein
Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein

Just wanted to have a good time and we were both ok for that
We were supposed to take a break but now she wants to make it last
And I ain’t trying to act like I’m the shit I hate to brag
But how the hell she fell in love laying on her back
I wonder what these other dudes are lacking
‘Cause all I did was treat her right be nice and fuck her with passion
You’re a horny chick that’s what I like about you why you’re laughing
It’s the truth never refuse it always let me smash it
Sometimes I even struggle just to keep up with you
But now you’re having feelings falling in love and that’s an issue
We were supposed to fuck be friends then you go right and I go left
Nothing more nothing less
But that was before you found out I do it better than your ex
So y’all tell me if I’m wrong ladies but I believe it’s 35% personality and 65% sex

Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein
Make a chick laugh make a chick cum
There’s a good chance that you’ll be the one, one
And I ain’t trying to brag I ain’t trying to front
It’s just how they react every time I give ‘em some
Hein
Track Name: Too Much
The bank account is dry like an unexcited pussy
Don’t wanna see me rise in a hole they wanna push me
Tired of trying to be wise when it ain’t the way it should be
I’ve been talking to the sky but it never understood me
Some become suicidal tired of living this way
Can’t get the minimum vital with minimum wage
Your friend is your rival’s what the system would say
And it’s an infinite cycle so some try to break it the criminal way
‘Cause life’s like the weather when it gets cold it can make you go from positive to negative
That’s how the shit goes at the bottom being sold the sickness and the medicine
And mother fucking problems
You’ll find ‘em everywhere the cheddar is
So please don’t blame it on the mothers and the fathers
‘Cause if they wouldn’t’ve been struggling to make a living they’d be raising better men

I wonder when it will it stop I can’t take it anymore
Complaining to the sky sick and tired of being poor
A decent house a job man it’s all I’m asking for
Committing suicide ‘cause they can’t take it anymore
I wonder when will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh
I said I said I said
When will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh

My whole family’s struggling
So we can’t even help each other man it’s troubling
My mother’s almost 50 years old still dealing with the toughest shit
When she should be chilling getting checks without relying on the government
But see the years go by and what was supposed to be temporary becomes permanent
I guess our chances are the world’s most wanted ‘cause so many people try to murder them
Then you get tired accept the verdict and stop thinking about how it should’ve been
They say money changes people but not having any does too
They say mo’ money mo’ problems
Oh I promise when you ain’t got a dime it’s rough too
See what you know about having to have 2 9 to 5’s and
Living to make living this ain’t living it’s surviving and
Being in shit so deep you can scuba dive in it

I wonder when it will it stop I can’t take it anymore
Complaining to the sky sick and tired of being poor
A decent house a job man it’s all I’m asking for
Committing suicide ‘cause they can’t take it anymore
I wonder when will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh
I said I said I said
When will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh

My pain is deep my happiness is superficial
I’m trying to stay awake no sleep got nothin’ to lose and it’s official
I hope they see a brighter future when they’re looking in the crystal
Shit I don’t give a fuck I’m coming through just like a missile
I’m 25 years old and I’m already tired exhausted from fighting
And I just wanna satisfy my needs I ain’t even talking about desires
And reality shows are not showing my reality
Down here we got more problems than our fucking sexuality
But I refuse to believe this situation is a fatality
We warriors and never running out of battery
Plus the world ain’t getting no sweeter
So all my homies having kids make sure to raise leaders
Someone who’s not afraid to stand up while they all remain seated
Everything happens to us for a reason

I wonder when it will it stop I can’t take it anymore
Complaining to the sky sick and tired of being poor
A decent house a job man it’s all I’m asking for
Committing suicide ‘cause they can’t take it anymore
I wonder when will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh
I said I said I said
When will it stop enh enh
I wonder wonder wonder when will it stop enh enh
Track Name: Egos
From the country to the suburbs and the slums
Men and our ego got us acting kind of dumb
‘Cause it’s die as a man can’t be living as a punk
You’re messing with a man’s pride you can end up in a trunk
We’re not the type that you’re gon’ see running
Feel the heat coming mean mugging
Start a fight for practically nothing
The streets love it in need of it
Being the toughest’s not much but at least it makes me something
I got gorillas on my side if you try to diss
It’s ride or die fuck the politics
And fuck the peace talk that Bambaataa shit
I’m a man with pride why should I swallow it
I ain’t a killer but don’t push me plus I’m mad stressed
You say the wrong thing it’s jab right jab left
Talking shit you gotta back it up what you expect
It’s sad how it starts with an argument and ends up with a death threat
But I’m a king without a queen
Plus I’m lacking material things
So all I got left is my self esteem
Pull out the weaponry I can’t let it be
I can’t let another mother fucker get the best of me

See my ego would say don’t fuck with me if it could talk
Dictating everything from the way I dress to the way I should walk
Gotta avoid anything that would make me look soft
Gotta be a bad mother fucker though I got a good heart
Your feelings gotta hide real men don’t cry
And if we do it’s in the dark in the light we alright
God knows I know it’s stupid and it’s not wise
But I don’t know if I would teach my son otherwise
‘Cause it’s a cold world and only the strong survive
See my own girl wonders what I hold inside
Can’t stand the possibility of being told a lie
‘Cause I’m a man with pride you don’t do shit like that
You don’t pick up and leave and leave me sick like that
But we don’t show it we get up and fight right back
‘Cause I’m the man I’m the shit yeah I’m nice like that hein

We work out like we’re getting ready to go to war
And brag about all the stuff we can afford
But the truth is the more you’re talking shit the more you’re insecure
We count chicks knockouts money and awards
‘Cause anything that can feed our ego we collect
And we confuse fear with respect ‘cause it has the same effect
Black T black jeans hoodie red
Your ego will haunt you if you can’t make the pussy wet
Your ego will make you lie to yourself thinking that you’re Gotti
Stuck in this shit yelling I don’t need nobody
You’re stagnating but you’re screaming y’all can’t stop me
See we could do so much together but you’re blinded by yourself
Acting like you’re too big for a little bit of help
And if you’re the shit quit the yapping it should speak for itself
Life will teach you that humility prevails
Track Name: Dream Bigger
They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up
They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up

I was taught at an early age to strive to be the best I can be
But it's funny how the fear of not achieving plan A tend to make us focus on plan B
I'm looking in the crystal ball but of course I can't see
It's 2:45 in the morning and I can't sleep
Gotta go for a ride 'cause my mind demands peace
Running around the house looking for these damn keys
I ask for avice but hardly listen only my heart commands me
And God knows I love her but I'm not ready for a family
I understand baby if I were you I wouldn't stand me
But did I change or did you think you knew me when you didn't
Am I the one to blame or just a victim of my ignorance
Sometimes you deserve the name but I never called you bitch
Love is a game you only lose it when you quit

They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up
They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up

I gotta make this shit happen or I quit rapping
And why I always have to justify my passion
See every time someone questions me about goals that's when I start mumbling
My mother worries 'bout my future
And if this music will amount to something
Plus my supporters? Easy to love 'em hard to trust 'em
We all know they all love you when you're nothing
So I wonder if they really got my back and what they're praying 'bout
I'll know I made it when I'll have my name in every haters mouth
But I don't want my friends loyalty to be a part of my latest doubts
Receiving judgments from my people for some shit I ain't about
Until then I'm still broke still facing clouds
Protected from the rain by some paper towels
Woken up by some baby being made on my neighbor's couch
A few push ups and pull ups to get the frustration out

They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up
They tell me quit dreaming so I dream bigger
And we ain't losers we just undercover winners
I'm like a cold summer or hot winter
You got knocked down just be a man and get up

This relationship's a headache you wonder why you stay for
When you could fuck that other chick that others only pray for
But 'til this day I've always been faithful
And raising kids is something that I know I'm able
So sometimes I just wanna settle down and make a bunch of little angels
But you gotta find that wife and put that food on the table
So maybe later
'Cause right now I'm financially emotionally unstable
You see I love my music more than anything
And God knows I've been sacrificing many things
But it is what it is it's not always what it seems
You see the rain makes the target seem so far
But the sun makes the trouble seem so small
And all of a sudden making it just doesn't seem so hard
The weather's nice and got me thinking I don't need no car
Track Name: Get 'em
Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it
Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it

Yourrself is not something you should be a shame to be
I know she loves me but the thing is ain't a thing for free
We're all running after numbers fuck justice 'cause it's plain to see
They only make laws to constrain the weak
So we be trying to make that paper everyday just hustling
Whether on a 9 to 5 or selling drugs and shit
Sometimes we fantasize 'bout copping guns and shit
And go to rob a bank like Tony Musulin
See we struggle but stay confidant
We're coming from the bottom bitch
And suffer from the consequence
Got troubles and enough of them
Learn to count on yourself and don't discuss this shit
'Cause when you reach out for help that's when you lose another friend
See when shit gets a little tough that's when the cowards emerge
You know about the table be around when it turns
And those who like to blame complain and scream at the world
You gotta know that action speaks louder words

Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it
Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it

I'm running around my mind looking for Gandhi
See my regrets are very alive but still they haunt me
My weak side is getting stronger than the strong me
Now you can see the fire in my eyes ring the alarm b
I used to call you baby heart beating like a hundred and one drums
You'd still be my lady if my pockets were carrying some funds
So get in shape 'cause time is paper and all it ever did was run run
No matter how well you make it don't forget where you come from
Fuck the hate only accountable to God
'Cause ain't a thing I could get credit for
I keep my palms together fingers to the sky
Or knees and hands and forehead on the floor
Everyday you're working and working and working working until
They pull the curtains reach surface ain't nothing worth what you feel
You're flipping burgers trying to nurture your skills
Ain't really trying to be perfect I'm trying to be perfectly real

Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it
Get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
get 'em g' get 'em
And show 'em you ain't gon' drop it
Track Name: Big Mac & Movie
We were so young
Like 17 18 and it was so fun
Just hanging out in the city we were both from
The love was so pure so sweet so dumb
I can't lie yo I was sprung
Had to see her something like 30 days a month
The older folks smiling like they don't know nothin'
But fuck what they're thinking cause I knew she was the one
No car to drop her off at her place
So sometimes I had to walk her home in the rain
Other times we'd have to run to catch the last train
Her father didn't but I bet the neighbors knew my name
See when you're making love to a beauty
To make her cum is a duty
In my heart she's a star and I'm a groupie
To make her laugh I just had to act goofy
And all we needed was a Big Mac and a movie

See everything was so simple back then
It was so simple
'Cause all we needed was each other
That's all we needed
And it was beautiful sweet pure
genuine

After 5 years of dating
We moved in together that's when things started changing
We used to have those sweet late night conversations
On the phone now all I hear is her complaining
That's what they've been telling me
And I used to say never me
That girl who use to bring me peace now stresses me
If only she knew that I'm trying to save money for a wedding ring
She wants to chill and take trips but hey
Now we got bills and fucking rent to pay
But she still wants to live like back in the days
When it wasn't yet the case
We were kids and didn't have to worry 'bout a thing
So now we don't make love and fuck as much
If this is growing up it fucking sucks
From the beginning I had nothing to offer but my love
But now the Big Mac and the movie ain't enough

Word up
See all of a sudden everything became complicated
Now everything is a problem
All These little stupid things became problems
And everything got dark
Relationship got boring
And It just wasn't fun anymore

We come home bitter
Cold like the winter
Sometimes we cook our own separate dinner
Sometimes I wonder why I'm still with her
Thinking I should just leave but then I reconsider
'Cause I still feel my heart pound when I kiss her
'Cause she still makes that sound when I'm in her
And if I don't see her for a few days well I still miss her
I got history with her
And I don't need the pictures to remember
I may not love everything that my girl's about
But deep inside I know I got the perfect spouse
So I turn around
'Cause life ain't easy but I know we'll find a way to work it out
I wouldn't trade her for nothing
10 is the number
She's everything a homie and a mother
And y'all might think I'm just a stupid mother fucker
But hey she's my girl and I love her

You know what they say though
Love is blind, love is blind
So this one is for all the lovers out there
And I'm not talking about those 6 month relationships
I'm talking about those 4 5 6 7 year relationships
You feel what I'm saying that real love
That type of love when you can look back and say
Damn we've been through a whole lot of shit together
Track Name: Living Better
A little bit of love a little bit of hope
A little bit of dough ‘cause we’re tired of being broke
A little bit of peace a little bit of time
A little bit help ‘cause we all needed sometimes
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better living better living better
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better

I do this with my heart making noise ‘til we all make it
Got troubles with the law so my boy hasn’t called lately
You’ve listened to your heart made the choice now your heart’s aching
Life is too hard to enjoy reincarnation
I’m begging customs to let my words go across nations
A sacrifice is a bad deal ‘cause you never know when it starts paying
And God is who we say we got faith in
But when he doesn’t answer it’s funny how we’re so quick to call Satan
If time is money I just can afford to be patient
The landlord’s racist so we gotta move
Nice clothes good food hate this why I gotta choose
No matter what the game is I don’t know how to lose
But will I ever make it I’m running out of clues

A little bit of love a little bit of hope
A little bit of dough ‘cause we’re tired of being broke
A little bit of peace a little bit of time
A little bit help ‘cause we all needed sometimes
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better living better living better
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better

They treat us like Pampers thinking we’re gon’ take this shit
His mother’s got cancer and someone’s gotta pay for this
Why don’t we care about the problem if everybody’s facing it
Some people did a lot but nobody gave a shit
Damn I hope it ain’t what I think it is
My girlfriend’s period is late again
And who am I to choose
To not let the baby live
But I can’t even take care of you
How the fuck I’ma raise a kid
Time I keep wasting it
And it will it quit running if I quit chasing it
Shit forget about the drugs and the guns
‘Cause stress is really what we die from
A revolution was in the air now I got it my lungs
They might be sleeping but the people are not dumb
Where I’m from
A money problem’s like a butt whole everybody’s got one

A little bit of love a little bit of hope
A little bit of dough ‘cause we’re tired of being broke
A little bit of peace a little bit of time
A little bit help ‘cause we all needed sometimes
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better living better living better
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better

Having 2 jobs is now the norm so kids grow up by themselves
Too young to watch porn but old enough to go to jail
See it’s the calm before the storm and this is the alarm bell
I’m taking the bull by the horns with or without your help
We’re getting trapped in gaps
And no exaggeration I just rap the fact
The turtle keeps running while the rabbit takes a nap
Only the strong survive that’s how the jungle is
It’s like we can’t make a move without stumbling
Shit I ain’t knocking fuck it man I’m coming in
With a whole group of people screaming fuck the government
Too proud to beg and too tired of struggling
So every fucking thing there is I’m running with
They wonder why he committed suicide he was too young for this
But they don’t realize what’s the point in being alive if you don’t exist

A little bit of love a little bit of hope
A little bit of dough ‘cause we’re tired of being broke
A little bit of peace a little bit of time
A little bit help ‘cause we all needed sometimes
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better living better living better
And we’d be living better living better living better
Yeah we’d be living better
Track Name: Try To Understand
Life is short and nobody wants to go first
But they'll be times in life when you'll regret your own birth
'Cause being poor hurts
And the hardest thing to understand is that it's not like we don't work
My Momma told me don't curse
But I'm just expressing the feeling of living in this cold world
What am I supposed to say when homie got jumped for going out with the wrong girl
Tell the family he'll be late for dinner
Left in a coma but it could've been worse
History repeats itself because we didn't learn
And all I got is my balls and those mother fucking words
I'm thinking some people have no heart or maybe Cupid is not that skilled
See you can't judge a man until you truly feel how he feels
And I can understand
But was that enough for you to kill

There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job
There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job

I need to get up but I'm too tired
Then I remember last night I heard my boo crying
And she deserves better so I wake up with the strength of a tiger
'Cause at the bottom there's no room for the weak you gotta be a true fighter
15 years old killed with a screwdriver
Sometimes you literally need to be a true fighter
Too many victims of unnecessary violence
And it's like they'll keep ignoring it until we start a new riot
You see reading between lines needs to be the new science
'Cause the one who's selling always has the advantage on the one who's buying
That's why I flip the channel when the news is on
'Cause what they're doing to the youth is wrong
And if you could read my heart you'd read the lyrics to my future songs

There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job
There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job

I wish we could all just pop bottles and party
But this world is a jungle and this life ain't a safari
Instead of keeping 'em in school they make 'em join the army
Politicians with their short term visions are professionals at being sorry
Some people get hurt but we don't notice 'cause they don't scream
See baby girl's a queen in her own dreams
But to society she's nothing but a dope fiend
So fucked up she lets the phone ring
Says a lot shit she don't mean
And got left out by the whole team
I don't have the answer this is not me raising my hand
Plus we can't agree with everything but we can try to understand
And this is not a fucking brand this is who I am
Fuck a dream I'm trying to come up with a plan

There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job
There's not always a simple answer to the question why
I know it's hard to understand but we have to try
We gotta come up with a plan 'cause I'm tired to see us cry
And this is not a one man's job
Track Name: Could It Be
She was born when LL used to rock the bells
Shortly after lost her pops and that cracked her shell
Lives a life of sin dresses lightly 'cause it's hot in hell
Yeah she's a bitch but she hides it well
She can't confess 'cause if she did she'd have a lot to tell
She knows God forgives but wonders if God could help
'Cause if she had to tell her secrets she would have to tell the secret of somebody else
She's got a man but the dude is serving time in jail
He doesn't know that she be creeping on the side like hell
And every week his friends visit him and they don't wanna hurt him understand how they felt
But they had to tell him when they told him homie turned pale heart stopped shocked as hell
He took it like a man but yo inside his self
That shit was killing him all night he cried and yelled

Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it
Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it

She's the type of chick that's always looking for affection
But for no longer than 20 minutes 6 seconds
You know that nice and quick pleasure
Can't stay with a man she finds relationships oppressive
To her you're only good as how long you can hold that erection
So don't expect her
To massage you stay the night or cook you breakfast
Towards men she's got a certain animosity but sexually they remain her preference
She don't love 'em don't trust 'em fuck 'em and collect 'em
Welcomes the dick with open arms
But she broke a lot of hearts
Was the one they cheated with but then exposed 'em all
This shit's a game to her but you usually don't think that far
See while you're getting hard
She be checking out your car
Now you're looking at your bank account discover how broke you are
You used to claim bitches ain't shit now you hope she calls

Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it
Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it

What's all that shit about sex money nothing more
Hell yeah she's a hoe but yo you can't judge her though
Before you point the finger there's a few things you gotta know
See when her pops died in 86
Her mother started drinking lost her job and couldn't pay the rent
And when you're an unemployed alcoholic single mother what you're gonna make of this
It makes it more than hard to find another place to live
So she stayed with him
And everything was cool in the beginning
See all these years the dude had been trying get with her
But he never thought he'd have to play the babysitter
He didn't give a fuck she wasn't his
So if she wouldn't behave he wouldn't hesitate to hit
One time he choked her almost killed her and her mother didn't do shit
And that was it
15 she packed her stuff and left the crib

Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it
Could it be her mom or the absence of a father
Could it be the greed and that Gucci Louis Prada
Could it be her way to forget about some drama
But what's clear is she's a bitch and she knows how to hide it
Track Name: Travel Light
Life is a trip I suggest you travel light
'Cause life is very far from Eric Wright
Took off your picture from the wall that I stare at night
But you still got a place in my heart I'll be there tonight
See I sacrificed my wife for a better life
It's like we gotta go through hell to see what Heaven's like
We all wanna make it but who can bear the price
The frustration made us arrogant and now we're yelling that we're hella nice
What's up homie we're together right
Messing with my trust let 'em once but won't let 'em twice
It's not an option man you have to fight
A place where we own our homes and have no debt that's the working class paradise
'Cause if the world is a cake we get the crumbs
Not even half a slice
I gotta do some overtime just to fix my headlights
And stupid things we fantasize about like hopping on the next flight

We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason
We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason

Those who give the most are the ones who have the least
I'm sad about the lack of compassion I see
But keep your head up there's no straight path to a dream
No money no crib so we sex in the passenger seat
We ain't rich but we're alive and happy to be
We joke about each other laugh about it for weeks
Some are rapping trying to make a living smashing these beats
Others went to jail couldn't find a job so they're back on the street
And some can predict what the next fashion will be
While others struggled but they finally have a degree
See it's a constant battle see we travel
Between our dreams and reality
That's why it's so easy to sell these kind of magazines
But chicks need to quit counting calories and build a stronger personality
And kids need to quit trying to make a quick buck and get a smarter strategy

We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason
We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason

Is God absent? 'Cause He's not always easy to believe in
I keep telling myself that everything happens for a reason
And I ain't chasing paper for status I'm chasing paper for freedom
To tell my girl baby start packing 'cause we're leaving
See I ain't trying to cop a new bling
Just wanna
Get out the house and do some new things
Have a full bank account for more than 2 weeks
And just allow myself to buy a few jeans
Allow myself to have a few dreams
'Cause empty pockets make it hard to escape the routine
They read a few a books then act like they know it all
I talk about life real shit with an open heart
Shit I got nothing to lose I'm just too low to fall
Yo I do what I got to do with no hope involved
And if life is a show call me Rosa Parks
I'm fighting for the front row fuck the law

We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason
We live in small apartments but we dream big
Hustle all week just to blow it on the weekend
Keep my chest out keep believing
'Cause everything happens for a reason a reason, a reason
Track Name: Paris
I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris
I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris

So many things to say I don't know where to start
This is where I was raised born and learned how to walk
Some of the best of my days I'll never find 'em abroad
I got love for this place it's got a piece of my heart
Lights on everything becomes magical
Then you got the other side with trash shacks and rats of course
Second nation of Hip Hop and it's the capital
If you can't understand it's just 'cause love is not rational
And maybe you don't wanna visit
But every year 30 million people think different
I know you know about the fashion how the food is delicious
But my plan and mission is to show the bigger picture
'Cause wishes and pennies sometimes it's all you got
It ain't always pretty quit putting things in a box
But really don't wanna dramatize
'Cause if my mother hadn't fell in love with the city she wouldn't've fell in love with my pops

I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris
I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris

My city's not my president and fuck who told you so
My city's multicultural
And it's a fact some will work twice as much and never get what they're hoping for
But where I grew up skin color didn't make us unapproachable
We might've joked about each others parents
Or made fun of what the other dude was wearing
But trust me you'll have a whole different outlook on this planete
Growing up amongst whites blacks and arabs
Muslims and christians
Seeing that it doesn't have to be the cause of some friction
Hands down the best city in the world to live in
But they're still so many living in appalling conditions
And that's what
They don't let the tourists see
The world's a movie and no one wants to play the shortest scene
Kids stuck dreaming of money and power
A lot of people I know have never gone up the Eiffel Tower

I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris
I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris

Can't afford to move but I probably wouldn't even if I could
'Cause not too many cities hold memories of my childhood
And from the big city to the wild hoods
When I say Paris I'm talking 'bout the one in the guidebook
I'm talking 91 92 93 95
94 77 78 and 75
From where a lot things are too expensive to buy
To where you basically just live to survive
From where lights shine brighter than the stars
To where you still got break dancers and graffitis on the walls
From gorgeous monuments and famous boulevards
To where we'll call you rich just because you got a yard
We killed the king in 93 so you don't wanna claim the crown
Far from being the only rapper coming from this town
But I'ma ride or die for it and I'ma try to make you proud

I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris
I love New York but I represent Paris
Got family out in Texas but I represent Paris
Tunisia stand up still I represent Paris
I'm talking to the world but I represent Paris
Track Name: Sundays
Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break
Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break

10 o' clock in the morning and I'm still up from last night
Sleeping
Time is money can't afford it never give up I'm that type
Trying to act right but it ain't easy trying to make it avoiding the fast life
You're feeling like a star I'm feeling like a flashlight
So thank God if I make it to Heaven's gate
But right now I need to make this money do you have a better way
My homie spent 3 years in the cage that makes you meditate
Now you won't find me in the club until I have something to celebrate
Learn your lesson success is climbing a tall wall
I'm under pressure like Precious in a Smart car
I haven't seen my bed in 3 days
Pockets ain't getting fat and my girl wants leave me
You can't fix the past like you can't make a U-turn on a freeway
Feeling trapped but I'ma make it best believe me

Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break
Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break

Life is a bitch and she's always horny
Life hurts but it's a blessing just to wake up every morning
Struggling but I ain't cursed a lot of people did before me
Someone told me every scar tells a story
And I can take the pain but I don't want it to be boring
Chicks making sex tapes as a shortcut to glory
But succeeding takes time and succeeding is hard
The quicker you rise the quicker you fall
Plus success is relative you don't have to be a star
It's hard enough just being who you are
Don't compare yourself to others
Everybody goes through shit one way or another
And there's a lot of things you'll never get used to
But just accept the present don't be living in the future
We all have our moments of doubt 'cause shit is human
And I don't wanna sound preachy but if they could do it you can do it

Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break
Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break

This is for the single mother who kneel for nothing
Who play the wife and the husband
Working 2 jobs so kids can have a decent supper
The repercussion is they don't get to see how much she loves 'em
'Cause they're asleep when she hugs 'em
This is for the kid who fights to stay on the righteous path
While all day they light smoke and pass
'Cause at 16 it's hard to understand that the future of your life's in class
When you can make that money nice and fast
Plus you know the cash will make them like your ass
This is for the man who has no options carry boxes even though his arm is hurting bad
While others making profit but won't share a dollar and if you're proud it hurts to ask
This is for the dude who can't get the job that he deserves to have
'Cause given the wrong name or even worse he's black
This is for a nation's legs aka the working class

Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break
Shout out to my people working on sundays
Waking up convinced that they will make it some way
It's crazy what we put ourselves through for that money
If only someone would give us that one break
Track Name: Looking For What I Had Found
I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back
I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back

In the beginning it was so perfect I
Used to hit the road just to show up at your work sometimes
I'm sitting here touched by the memories running through my mind
Unaffected by the rain I had my own sunshine
You used to hold me down had me thinking that the world's mine
If looks could kill your body would commit the worst crime
I used to brag about you talking 'bout homie the girl's fine
And we know men are stupid but I'm probably like the worst kind
'Cause damn I just left you for the third time
I'm sorry I couldn't see that picture with the kids playing in the background
But if I promise I will never leave you again would that count
You know you fucked up when you're looking for something you had found
But I guess it's too late to get you back now

I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back
I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back

I had known you for a minute but our lips had never met before
You had me watching out for my health and eating vegetables
Your affection was amazing and the sex was wow
Gentle bites and kisses on your neck and lobe
Telling me you've never been that wet before
I'm feeling stupid yo for losing you a beauty from head to toe
I really liked you and not only when you left your clothes
So many feelings that I've never let you know
Now I'm sitting here wondering now why the hell I had to let you go
It's crazy how you go from baby girl to the girl is not yours
And gimme all the money in the world love is not something you can shop for
Lost in my thoughts looking out the window from the top floor
Thinking I got good memories of us but I wish I had a lot more

I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back
I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back

See you understood me knew me like you raised me
The story didn't last but the chemistry was crazy
Taking care of me I'm feeling like a baby
On top of the world and proud to call you my lady
Back then you used to bring me so much joy
Now you probably got a baby girl or a baby boy
Wish I could see you again or call you just to hear your voice
But deep in my heart I know I made the right choice
'Cause girl you had a life to live and that was not for me
You had a good man and plans to buy your own property
And I know you would've left everything you got for me
But I didn't wanna make a promise I wouldn't keep
It wasn't easy for me neither wish I could've stayed
Of course I miss you think about you every single day
But sometimes the best decisions are the hardest ones to make

I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back
I didn't appreciate the girl I had
Now you're no longer with me and I want you back
See when you're mine I tend to I treat you bad
Then you're no longer with me and I want you back
Track Name: The Good Story's Bad Part
I'm at the crib laying on the couch looking out the window
With all these questions in my head wishing things would be more simple
'Cause nothing's worse than to fuck up 'cause you didn't know
But you live and you learn they say be careful what you wish for
See when hopeless your life seems
That's when you wonder if you're living for the right thing
Some people wanna help and it's a nice thing
But then the question is are you really under the right wing
See everybody's got dreams but dreaming doesn't paid the bills
And after all the sweat and the tears the sacrifices made you're still
Begging God please I thought we made a deal
Tired of having to think twice before spending a few bucks
And feeling at peace is a lot harder than to put your two's up
Sometimes I think I think too much

I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part
I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part

Doing the same thing every morning every evening
Of course we want the money 'cause the money brings you freedom
But we ain't trying to buy cars for no fucking reason
We just want our life to be comfortable and peaceful
'Cause sometimes stress can be lethal
Especially when relief is coming out of needles
Make the difference between what's wrong and what's illegal
No one on this earth is born evil we're born equal
But this world doesn't seem to reward good people
I said this world doesn't seem to reward good people
Too much dust biting I ain't breathing well
It's funny how the devil helped you flee this hell
If this is what it means I don't need the wealth
You wonder why we call youu bitch but
Why would we treat you better than you treat yourslef

I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part
I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part

I've been committed everyday since day one
Trying to avoid the snakes and the fake ones
Mistakes every human being makes some
But some feelings hurt so some prefer to stay numb
Sometimes I'm tired of talking tired of thinking so I play dumb
I might be finished but I ain't done
Sometimes it ain't fun
So we fuck life 'til better days come/cum
Babies everybody knows how to make 'em
But not too many know how to raise 'em
So every now and then I wonder how my parents did it
4 kids not a lot money but they dealt with it
My father raised leaders my mother had our backs
And if they didn't have a lot we had everything needed
That means they gave us all they had
And now they got me thinking will I be that good of a dad

I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part
I ain't got no fame no bitches and no fast car
No wife and no kids and my crib ain't got a backward
I'm thinking 'bout my future having bad thoughts
I guess in every good story that's a bad part
Track Name: I Need To Live
I need to take a break put my brain to sleep
I’m on a 7 to 7 7 days a week
So focused on the race I forget to breath
Making plans for the future trying to make history
But yo I need to live
Hit the road and see the world
I need to live
Fun family friends and girls
I need to live
‘fore I end up in the dirt
I need to find some time live

I guess God is trying to humble me
All my life I never won like the number 3
I’m wishing I can go back to sitting on my mother’s knees
‘Cause as you grow up time becomes money so chilling is a luxury
Misery loves company
So now we’re blinded by the color green
Sex can kill put on a rubber please
We fall in love with girls girls fall in love with things
Me I got like a dozen needs
First oxygen so I can fucking breath
A crib a car food and people close to me
Strength to become the person that I’m supposed to be
Some Inspiration and the dopest beats
Nice clothes plane tickets to see my family overseas
A chick that’s an undercover freak
And when I get tired of this world a spaceship or a submarine
That makes 12 count it if you don’t believe

I need to take a break put my brain to sleep
I’m on a 7 to 7 7 days a week
So focused on the race I forget to breath
Making plans for the future trying to make history
But yo I need to live
Hit the road and see the world
I need to live
Fun family friends and girls
I need to live
‘fore I end up in the dirt
I need to find some time live

Call me Budapest I represent the Hungary/hungry
I’m in a studio no longer thinking ‘bout what troubles me
A few homies in the back chilling joking puffing trees
And lately I’ve been talking to the other me
‘Cause back in the days we made a nice couple see
It wasn’t always easy but she stuck with me
So I’ma make her my wife and plant a couple seeds
Hopefully
‘Cause ain’t nobody ever got that close to me
Turn off the light fuck her right
And you don’t know how much I miss these summer nights
Hop on the plane take a break leave Paris for a couple days
Barbecues on the beach going fishing with my Uncle Shane
I can’t remember names but can’t forget a face
So if you got love for me please don’t think I don’t feel the same
‘Cause no matter what if I loved you once I’ma love you ‘til my dying day

I need to take a break put my brain to sleep
I’m on a 7 to 7 7 days a week
So focused on the race I forget to breath
Making plans for the future trying to make history
But yo I need to live
Hit the road and see the world
I need to live
Fun family friends and girls
I need to live
‘fore I end up in the dirt
I need to find some time live

Times are getting hard like cold tits do
So thank God you got people that will roll with you
It’s the 5th of the month and the rent’s due
Still you’re ‘bout to hit the club pul out your Timberland boots
‘Cause at the end of the day you won’t regret what you did you’ll regret what you didn’t do
So if they won’t let us in we’ll have a party on a friend’s roof
Fuck around talk about the crazy shit we been through
Trying to get some you’re the type of chick I’m into
Others get drunk start raising a bunch of different issues
But the point is always what they have a hard time to get to
And if there’s a fight get out the way before he misses him and hits you
We be talking ‘bout our hopes and plans ‘til the sun is up
She says she loves me ‘cause I understand where she’s coming from

I need to take a break put my brain to sleep
I’m on a 7 to 7 7 days a week
So focused on the race I forget to breath
Making plans for the future trying to make history
But yo I need to live
Hit the road and see the world
I need to live
