Make a name, make it ring, make a track, make it bang. They gon give me my respect or I'm about to make a scene. Brushing up on my lines, bitch! cameras on. places please. Patience is a virtue and I'm pacing to my place as king. They told me to play the scene; open mic with niggas who ain’t never made it out dc, open right before niggas who mixtape on blank cd, so miss me with that bullshit. They preaching to the choir but I'm speaking from the pulpit. Never met a nigga from my city so cold. the city of the go, with cobras And kings and bds and souls, gangsta disciples, cvls and foes. Shop open up when cvs is closed. block close up when cpd patrol. Cops show up and its finna be a first fourty eight if a nigga violate that code. Aint put shit on boss or stone but I coulda been gone like Derrion Albert. So I could give a fuck about these weak ass niggas albums. They are secant cosines, I got on without one. I live on the tangent, they wondering how I'm (Living a movie)

Posted on a plane. I pen with QWERTY, not a pencil. Story of my life: Where I'm going/ What I've been through. Flyer than the pilot but right now that's not the issue. Miss me with that bullshit. That's what I don't get into. They sending shots up but they can't hit me with their pistols. Women waving mistletoe, The devil sending missiles. Shake em as they pass us while these women shaking asses. Play the humble when they gas us cuz I know their fake asses will ask us questions when their thinking or got an inkling that the blessings ain't raining down on us quite as fast as we want em. But the Lord told me wait on Him. So all my foes, I pray for them instead of prey on them. But damn a nigga stays hungry. Devil on my back told me, "Eat these niggas, treat these bitches. Beat these niggas, tax they hoes and beat they bitches." I'm tryna stay Christian. Don't make me lose religion. They're praying for my ending but this only my beginning cuz I'm (Living a movie)

The grind don’t stop and i ask myself why these haters mad? Guess its cuz i got so popular. Was nobody a year ago, i just became this way. As long as the streets had direction when i asked which way. And when I passed fifth grade, was smoking cigarettes on the way to the sixth not giving a shit, then it was gimme the spliff. And now remy I sip and smile cuz I’m moving in a motion, mom couldn’t picture how it could be done. Life is a motion picture now. come where where I’m from (DC) and die trying to star in this movie. Up in my town, on the block where I’m from, young’ns live the OG’s sequel, outshine the reruns. Cuz we seen it all, done it all. The director of my movie was the lord, he won’t forgive us all. Most niggas seen Scarface and they wanted to ball, wanting to play the role but niggas dying in the casting call when ya (Living a movie)
