lyrics

Intro:

Where's it's all going / living out my dreams (repeated).

Verse One:

The saying goes you keep HIM close and you see the gold / metaphor for the good life / the finest clothes / pretty girls and a HAMMER crib / 40 acres / plenty mules / hella cannabis / nothing happens overnight / like a celebrity the Twista is life and everything inside that cold bitch / life's a bitch life's a bitch / shoulder chips are getting bigger / babies getting older / wife is getting sicker / of the dream I told her one day it'll get us plenty richer / and I ain't seen a pretty penny since the Good Times / it's a / tragedy I swear / cause when the rent due this cold world don't even care / so do I love rap or all the dollars it acquires / saying money don't matter / then I'm Lucifer / a liar / time is getting shorter I'll admit it / shit / Chance The Rapper signed / Add-2 signed / where my dotted line niggas? / last year we all rocked the same shows / the difference is they see the world / I see the same woes / gotta turn my nonbelievers to believers like I'm Christ / and I'll take the same cross if it can get a brother known / post on foreign whips and spazz out on paparazzi / so fresh to def / rocking shit called Ghadafi / what's all worth if I can't take a dollar with me / I just wanna take my God with me / everybody sing..

Chorus One (Fly Kelly and Erthe St. James):

We can be friends and strangers / strangers are here like the Weather.....We can be friends and strangers / strangers are here like the Weather.....

Verse Two:

Life after raps / how I'm at this point of thinking? / forever young never not accepting that religion / we all got a time / the only thing is can you cease it? / before you know it poof / like the precious life of Proof / the proof is in the lines / I'm a legend unseen / but what difference does it make / my recognition's unseen / it's so many articles of "wow he so slept on / I'm practically the cousin of death poised with a vest on / that humble shit will have a humble nigga bread short / while cocky niggas packing coups out like Jansport / life is like an LA born rapper / Too Short / my nerves are getting bad lately smelling like a Newport / under stress I'm seeing now why we do harder drugs / swallow molly's / hard liquor / damn who I was / can't forget with God that anything is possible / that obstacle is nothing while I'm fighting for the biggest buzz / what I'm fighting for is life man to live it to the point my old money need a funeral / digits never leave / my momma could retire / can help stop a fire in Chicago / no soccer attire / just a little bit of wire and some faith / and when it's all over I just wanna be a great / just wanna be somebody's greatest for somebody to make it / somebody gotta die and with that notion I hate it / so fuck the greatest then / give me Ghandi life / Fred Hampton soul / and Watts riots all night / I'm taking over and rubbing shoulders with devils and slapping the politicians who gives us nothing but shovels to.... / bury young niggas / bury smart niggas / bury niggas with Michaelango art / it is / something that I love / but shit / something gotta give / I'm looking up above / everybody sing....
