Turn the music up turn the lights down I'm in my zone
[Chorus]
The world'll feel my truths through my "Hard Knock Life" time my gift and a curse
I built the Dynasty by being one of the realest *****s out
From my Blueprint beginnings 'til that Black Album ending

Between him doing heroin and me doing crack sales
Rather the church pretending to be hurt
Like damn that mans face was just like my face
It wasn't all your fault homie you got caught
My big brothers and so many others I saw
Talk and re-meet each other save a place in Heaven

The world'll feel my truths through my "Hard Knock Life" time my gift and a curse
I built the Dynasty by being one of the realest *****s out
From my Blueprint beginnings 'til that Black Album ending

Hustlers and boosters embrace me and the music I be making
They criticize me for it yet they all yell "Holla"
I'd probably be lyrically Talib Kweli
I ain't been rhyming like Common since
And you been hustling since, your inception, **** perception
Since I know what I'm up against
And I can't help the poor if I'm one of them
The next time you see the homie and his rims spin

The world'll feel my truths through my "Hard Knock Life" time my gift and a curse
I built the Dynasty by being one of the realest *****s out
From my Blueprint beginnings 'til that Black Album ending

'Cause he was on the block where no squares get off
'Til we all got triangles on our wall
I recall, 'cause I really been there before
I shall fear no man you don't hear me though
Yo, my balls and my word is all's I have
What you gonna box me homie? I can dodge and jab
I'm strong enough to carry Biggie Smalls on my back

The world'll feel my truths through my "Hard Knock Life" time my gift and a curse
I built the Dynasty by being one of the realest *****s out
From my Blueprint beginnings 'til that Black Album ending
