Sittin back on the flight. Jack with the ice. Head in my left hand, cup in the right. Dreams quicker than a jet but I plain chase the life. I aint touched yall yet. Tryna figure what to write. I cashed a couple checks but I'll spend it by the night. Party after the set against my accountants advice. Gotta celebrate the fact that yall fuck wit me for the price. From that first snare crack when I'm standin there with the mic. Put ya hands in the air if my shit sounds nice. I can barely see yall thru the glare of the lights. Only feedback I need is the scene to get hype. Who's the illest from this joint to Mars like Spike? If its a sea full of C's, every one of yall's right. So, say my name. Homies toast ya beers. The sentiment shared by best of peers the best in here bar for bar is here. Cheers!

They saying hard work pays off, I don't cut with baking soda, but I step on. DG said make em wait for it so I left it on the stove while they slept on. Whip it sum’n wicked all day. Took my show to broadway, now they with it. Blowing up, no more hustling the hard way. Women showing up, well they did before, but, now they willing with no cause. Hit them dressing rooms strapped like a wizard, wish em well like a penny then I toss. I remember wishing for dc applause, now I get it like a wizard interstate now that 95 is oz. Gucci got them yellow bricks, I just want my name in bronze in miami at the grammys on the island of the stars. Yeah that's over there by shaq house. wonder why these niggas still playing like stackhouse? Might as well be walking on the sun like smashmouth. Playa I been all star ever since a nigga graduated out the frathouse

From the fans in the rear you can hear to the Stans in the band t-shirts adhere. Stick to every word. They can spit it so clear. This shit is surreal. can't believe its so real. Like, look at what we done in the last couple years. Tell em look at where we going but they sleeping, still. Still chase dreams of the bills with our names in large font. And oh yeah, a couple mil’. Cup'll fill and overflow if the sun don't chill. bring the heat in every show. That's most important deal. You paying to see perfection staying with me on her heels. I'll chase her until I catch her or ‘til I cease to live. Forgive me for the lecture. I'm just saying how I feel. Tryna give you my perspective, hope you see it with your ears. Hope you hear it with your heart. Hope you share it with your peers. So when I'm no longer here, you might shed a couple tears.
