A friend of mine came over and played this instrumental he found online. I dont normally write to a beat someone downloads off of YouTube but I thought this track was incredible and before I knew it, I had a pen and pad in hand, creating what i think is the best verse I've written... so far.
You can keep all the handouts / cause I already peeped the fine print
I’m just trying to be a man now / without feeling like I owe shit
Prodigal son, Mom’s little runaway /10,000 hours and I’m feelin like I’m one away / feelin like I’m one away / looking for the homie but I’m feeling like I’m one away / Maybe that was GOD in my left ear / Told me all I need just to get here / But everybody trynna take the credit / Type shit drive me crazy if I let it. / Well fuck it, you can have that / I ain’t from the New Era homie but I snap back / T.I.- Rubber band man, Yeah I snap back / Back of the line but the boy got the last laugh. / So you can chuckle here and there. / But the boy gonna hustle like a bear. / And I ain’t fucking with the bull / No gimmicks over here man, YOU FUCKIN WITH THE REAL! / I said you fuckin with the real, but you probably couldn’t tell. / ‘cause they don’t make ‘em like this in the days where they fall for whatever gonna sell. / I bailed on that bullshit, somehow I knew it , but guessed at the same time / Hail to that true shit / I guess that’s what faith is / Blessed with the blueprint / I move with a purpose / My knees on the pavement / Shooting at stars / Perfecting my aim / If practice makes perfect I’m perfectly placed in this place where the faithless stay waitin’ for signs… they stay waiting for signs… But I already got mine / When I was locked in that Box / Heard the voice of my GOD… See, this is GOD’s plan; it ain’t mine….and it damn sure ain’t yours.
