Why Would I Stop?

length: 2:32

Yeah, whoa
This what they been waiting on?
Critical, ain't no time left on the clock
When it's your time, give 'em something to watch
I picked all the locks 'til I buy up the block
And I know I'm a gift but I think out the box
And they want me to stop, but why would I stop? (Huh)
I am unstoppable (hol' up) why would I stop, *****?
Why would I stop? Chill (chill), I don't jump, I dive in it
(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) This the reason I'm alive, isn't it?

This **** the antidote, this the cure cancer flow
Stop a pandemic and the globe
The product of old Ye chopping up the sample flow
Dilla and Pimp C, the triller, this **** might go too trill for Triller though
I see you critical, I'm not hospitable, favorite rappers I done cut they umbilicals
Red Wings jersey, B.I.G look like Pac
The blacker the berry, more they wan' see it rot
I'm going down as one of the GODS, G-O-D-D-O-A, dead or alive
I'm laying low, they could be espionage
This ain't no walk in the park, you can't slide
Solution to everyone else 'round me problems
Next episode, got the whole ****ing world watching
I might leave the series, come back like I'm Rodman
Get it now, or right now, my only two options

So why would I stop, I am unstoppable (hol' up)
Why would I stop, *****? This **** unstoppable
Chill (chill), I don't jump, I dive in it
(Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up) This the reason I'm alive, isn't it?

The DJ gon' drop this, we made it from scratch
I'm minding my business and all of its black
My dawg on the same way, the mode is attack
I don't complain about life, I adapt
I'm at a point if I **** with a lil' ho
It's not just a fling, it's a scandal (on God)
I can't be handing out samples (no way)
I can't be having ten baby mamas
That **** sound like a job not a family (straight up)
And I do this **** for the family (straight up)
Yeah, that's just the roots I had planted (God)
D2 this **** the new standard
Upgraded the city, it got a new feeling, the house that I built (whoa)
House in the hills, ain't no hills in the D, so we all in the field (whoa, whoa)
Runnin' **** 5K, 3K Andre (run it, run it)
Hero in my hood, when they dress like me, that's cosplay
Give a **** 'bout a threat, *****, I'ma threat leaving out the driveway
I never listen to what the odds say
Why when the universe respond to what I say?
(I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say)
(I say, I say, I say, I say, I say, I say)

Lucky Me

length: 4:08
Lucky me
If they want my spot, then they gotta come for me
Just know I want this **** more than whatever it is you want from me
And the only thought at night that comforts me is starving whoever's hunting me
****, lucky me, to be rich in a world where nothing's free
And separated from hell by one degree
Surrounded by *****s who did first degree
And the other ones that never got they first degree, sheesh
Lucky me (*****), yeah, I done slashed hoes like I'm Slash on some rockstar ****
Even bought Slash old crib, that's rockstar as it gets
And had my hands on the R&B legends you couldn't handle
Whether you do music or not, you wish you could sample
And I had to live through the scandals, public humiliations and breaks up on camera
It's a living nightmare when your dream girl has to get cancelled
And you gotta delete all the photos and **** like you never Instagramed it
And you get off track but somehow you gotta stay transit, ha
Man, lucky me

I was diagnosed with a heart disease at nineteen
Could barely stand on my feet
Doctor said they had to cut it open, put a pacemaker on it to put it back on beat
'Til my mama took me to holistic doctors and they prescribed me magnesium for two weeks
Went back to the regular doctors and they said
"Huh, damn, looks like we don't need to proceed"
That's how I know that western medicine weak
Man lucky me, to be the chosen one
And saved for the special occasions like I was Opus One
You know and I'ma live for ever like Walt Disney, the frozen one
Done flew so many times past the limit, I didn't even know it was one
And faced our problems head on when they told us to run
And ran it up in the city where no one would come
One that had literally died but then came back alive
And that's the furthest thing that I know from over and done
And I don't even have to say it, you know where I'm from, *****
Lucky me, lucky who? Lucky true
It's a wonder what prayer, working smart, and love can do
And y'all got an efficient and humble crew
And you got a long list of the things y'all wanna do
****, who who knows? Lucky me can turn into lucky you

We turn nothing to something so much, it's nothing new
I know lady luck so well, I swear that's like my bottom *****, number two
Doing what we love and choose with lots to lose and more to prove
Ain't runnin' from nothing but haven't lost sight of the finish line
That we been runnin' to, lil' *****
This Detroit ****in' 2
My thoughts is all black, yeah, I'm back to the roots
**** your white flag, ho, I don't want no truce
And we all in the huddle they like, it's on you
Mmm, lucky me, pressure's what I eat
Ain't no roses at my feet, just the blood on the concrete, look

The mission is covert, I stuck to the code and you don't know the code word
Once they turn me up and just know that it's over
My soul is on soulless, surrounded by angels and soldiers on soldiers
World turn me cold, game turned me colder
Sittin' court-side lookin' like I'm finna be the ****in' future owner
Cup runneth over and she coming over
And she told me that her lil' bro wanna be me when he older
Look, I ain't gon' hold you, though
Put in my family, I feel like Utopia
Falling in love with a slut is my phobia
My whole team first class, so it ain't no coaching us
Whoa there, don't go there, now slow down lil' brody, I know you don't know me
I buffed up my chest up, I feel like Hulk Hogan, I walk in the building like everybody owe me
Move heaven on earth, this **** feel like erosion
The don, I'm the king, I'm consulting the soldiers
You talk to me nice and not real, I'm insulted
I bet on myself, ain't no way my hands folded
What's a limitation? **** your validation, I don't gotta figure, God flow got it renovated
Demon slayer and ***** slayin', legendary it's insulated
Two guards outside barricaded while I'm serenading
Paradise covein' while I'm strokin', ***** tight I'm claustrophobic
She do damn down and devoted, got me wondering what's her motives
Remember my feelings don't mean **** to none of my goals
So I gotta stay focused, this city is soulless, this **** get to vulgar
Seen bodies wrapped up in them white sheets, no COVID

The mission is covert, I stuck to the code and you don't know the code word
Once they turn me up and just know that it's over
My soul is on soulless, surrounded by angels and soldiers on soldiers
World turn me cold, game turned me colder
Sittin' court-side lookin' like I'm finna be the ****in' future owner
Cup runneth over and she coming over
And she told me that her lil' bro wanna be me when he older (facts)
Look, I ain't gon' hold you, though
Put in my family, I feel like Utopia
Falling in love with a slut is my phobia
My whole team first class, so it ain't no coaching us
My whole team first class, so it ain't no coaching us
Nobody over us, except the ones we lost, stay watching over us

Prayin' hands, prayin' hands
Say amen, got a lot of to do
But she gon' wait on me (wait on me)
Legendary ****, lucky me (yeah)

Deep Reverence

length: 3:51
(Hit-Boy)
(G. Ry got me)

Look, **** rap, I'm a street legend
Block love me with a deep reverence
I was birthed in a C-section
Hella cops and police presence
We got opps, so we keep weapons
We on y'all block while y'all eat breakfast
A lot of shots, we broke street records
Watch how you talk, I got reflexes
Watching your cheap necklace
Then we slide out the east exit
But every time we get to ****in' *****s up, TMZ catch it
Y'all still learnin' street lessons
From the mastermind, first you master grind
Then your team catch it
This time is for the money, I don't need credit
And I'm the don 'cause the streets said it, look
(**** rap, I'm a street legend)
And I'm the don 'cause the streets said
(Block love me with a deep reverence) yeah, whoa
And I'm the don 'cause the streets said it

Yeah
And I got pressure on me
Seven days a week, it's game seven on me
Life'll test you out, you live through that, that's testimony
Givin' 'em hell but how in the hell I got all these blessings on me?
Most of the girls I know addicted to social media
All this time they put in, they could've wrote encyclopedias
Mama said it only takes one time to **** up your whole Wikipedia
And as your son, I could see the type of light that you see me in
After what happened to Nipsey I reached out to Kendrick
It wasn't even no real issues there to begin with
Lack of communication and wrong information from people
Fueled by the ego is like mixing flames with diesel
Energy crazy, I realize that it's a two way street
What's coming is going if it don't give you more, it drains you
Should be a billionaire based on the time off I'm not taking
Probably why this **** with me get crazy and we lost a baby
And everybody around me think I'm the one
But we all just one of ones
And I'm walkin' out the crib, they ask me where I'm going
I told 'em I'm goin' on another ten year run
*****s is banging over blocks that they don't own, thinking that's home
Boy, you think that's where you're from?
You don't really know where you're from
You don't know how deep your roots is or what your ancestors had done
So God bless all the sons and daughters who knew their history
So they knew where to take it farther
And all the ones that stuck with me like good barbers
Lookin' at my life story, God's a good author
Never was the loudest in the room, we move like ninjas
And if it cost you peace of mind, it might be too expensive
So I can give you everything that you want from me for free though
Get you one shot in life, you might not be able to reload
So advanced, I need all my advances
Bro hit me up for cash like we didn't have the same chances
My Dad hit me up like, why I don't live in a mansion?
I'm tryna focus, but baby girl, keep holding my mind for ransom
And that ain't how it's supposed to be
This man Hov got to a B
And his name Shawn too, I almost felt like it was me
Damn, I realize all my setbacks were inside of me
In high school I learned chemistry, biology
But not how to cope with anxiety
Or how I could feel like I'm by myself on an island
With depression on all sides of me (damn)
With a Glock 17 right on the side of me (hold up)
Look, I ain't think I had the thought of suicide in me
Until life showed me all these different sides of me
Too many times I thought the reaper was outside for me
And how the **** is people that never met me that hate me?
I wonder if they understand that I meditate daily
And feel like my life purpose is to give inspiration
Despite the hit songs that there's just no escaping
That I take care of my family and beat the odds that were deadly
You hate that? That just reflects your lack of succession
Bless 'em, if it ain't Nipsey blue, it's Detroit blue
This that Detroit 2, I'm bringin' it back to the hood like D boys do, gone

So the collaboration though with Nipsey and who?
Aww man, I'd prolly say Payroll or Tee Grizzley
Me and Big Sean talked about doing something recently too
So, you know all of 'em, I'ma, I'ma tap in with all of Detroit

(**** rap, I'm a street legend)
(Block love me with a deep reverence)

Better play it right, yeah, you better play it right

I got loyalty and blood, I do anything for love
And everything for us, doing everything like everything ain't been too much
You know my favorite time to come through for ya is the clutch, last second, what a rush
Look, I'm the type to talk to the stars (I look up)
Straight up, these ain't tattoos these are scars
My young dogs will tear you and the witnesses apart (straight up)
They care about starving more than they do about a charge (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Me, I can't break a commitment (no)
I done seen people **** up the whole team 'cause they couldn't play they position
Talking about they didn't mean it, *****
You know the road to hell was paved with good intentions
I see myself in my nemesis, I contemplated forgiveness, I think I lost all my innocence
Ho, my life depend on this, this ain't no simple sucka ****
Try and steal and you get bit, that's what you motha****ing get
I feel safer taking risks and I can't eat this on my own life
Put my back against the wall just to see how much I've grown, dawg

I was raised by the wolves, ate 'til they full (I was raised by)
Run through the night, playing with ya life
Go against the pack, that's risking ya life (I was raised by)

Run through the night, playing with ya life
Go against the pack, that's risking ya life
Better play it right, yeah, you better play it right

I was raised by the wolves, paid all my dues
Always in the game and never played by the rules
Try to make me leave, fell down to my knees
Picked myself up and turned my back to the breeze
Oh, oh-oh
Spent a milli on a milli, mama look at me
With all these diamond chokers, man, it's getting hard to breathe
Now that you are family, cut some branches off my tree
But if you in my circle, know I'll always be around
Don't let me down, you said you'd die for me, well, there's the ground
Ice on my wrist, ice in my veins
But it's a cold, cold world, and you can be predator, you can be prey

I was raised by the wolves, ate 'til they full
Run through the night, playing with ya life
Go against the pack, that's risking ya life
Better play it right, better play it right

'Cause I was raised by the wolves, ate 'til they full ('til they full)
Run through the night, playing with ya life (with ya life)
Go against the pack, that's risking ya life (risking ya life)
Better play it right, yeah, you better play it right

I was raised by the wolves (I was raised by)
I was raised by the wolves (I was raised by)
I was raised by the wolves, ate 'til they full (I was raised by)
Run through the night, playing with ya life

Body Language

Don't just take your clothes off, take the problems off

I know, I have people in my circle, but they weren't in my corner
I had people in my business, but they didn't support it
But took advantage of me like they supposed to do with their moments
Everything you didn't do, but could've did if you wanted
Working overtime, it's time I could be taking you down
Real ****, I gotta quit acting like these *****s don't want my place
When I ain't around, even though *****s ain't threats
I know if I don't live with you I gotta live with regrets
I might walk in while you showerin'
Hit you in your shower cap, you gripping on the towel rack
I'm bussin' while you buss back, in the bathtub pouring champagne on that *** like I'm Dame Dash
Goddamn, yo last ***** blew it with his lame ***

Bring that body to me
Baby, come closer, closer
Bring it to me
Oh, yeah, baby, I'll give you ecstasy

In the city of murder, mayhem and narcotics
We got enough problems
Now it's time for that (soulful moaning)
(Oh baby, oh baby)

Story by Dave Chappelle

length: 2:35
There's never been a single time
Not a, not a one that I've been to Detroit
Where it wasn't some kind of adventure
The city is ****ing crazy, it's like it's palpably alive
It's an entity, it's not like just a place you go, it's, it's Detroit
And one of the reasons that Detroit is my favorite market
Is because the audiences in Detroit, for a comedian, I find them to be particularly challenging
So when I go there, in this particular story, it seemed like a pretty benign night
And I'm sitting in the dressing room at the Fillmore and there's a older gentleman in there
And I don't really talk to the guy much, but he was a nice guy, cool energy, **** like that
And then, uh, famed Detroit rapper Danny Brown came in
Now at this time, I wasn't that familiar with Danny Brown's music, you know what I mean?
So when he asked me to smoke with him, I just smoked with him
I didn't hear all that Aderall, Aderall and all that ****, I didn't know he was 'bout that life
I'm assuming it's weed, I don't know what the **** it was, but, boy
I mean, I smoked weed a million times in my life
Never ever remember feeling this way before and as I was walking on stage
I told my road manager, "You know my number's up tonight"
He's like, "What does that mean?"
"I'm going to bomb", and true to my professional prescription, I did
But there's bombing, then there's the **** that happens in Detroit
It's like the crowd was with me, but the way the crowd responded to me widely
Was one of my favorite crowd interactions ever and as the set is going terrible
When it's clear I'm not gonna be able to pull the nose up and I'm gonna have to crash this thing
I saw Danny Brown slipping out the room, which made me laugh really hard
Go back in the dressing room, everyone you know
There's a stink on you after you bomb, where everyone looks at you like, you know what I mean?
Like Headwound Harry like, "*****, are you okay?"
But I really I can't explain it to you, I really didn't care
And then, and then it turns out that this kind, older gentleman was Big Sean's father
And my goodness, the, the, he gave me a pep talk that only a dad could give
And it made me feel wonderful man (wow)
So shoutout to you Big Sean, shoutout to Detroit
I'll never stop loving your city and I'll never stop loving you, bro
You guys are the truth, much love to the Motor City

Harder Than My Demons

length: 2:11
Yeah, yeah
Whoa, whoa, whoa
I know we gon' make it if Mike Will Made-It, yeah (yeah)
New tags, toe tags (whoa, whoa)

No more breaks, dawg, it's time to break hearts (break hearts)
I don't take disrespect, I take charge (whoa)
I'm in the mirror lookin' at a work of art (like, God)
Hard work don't mean **** if it ain't smart (ain't smart, ooh)
I'ma run the play up to the max (like that)
So if I don't know you, don't owe you, I gotta tax (whoa, whoa)
I got enough sense, and I slipped through the cracks (whoa)
And, nowadays, I wear my smile like a mask
I'm the idols I looked up to in my past
All natural, doctor Sebi, you gon' have to CBD me
I been watchin' what they feed me (whoa, whoa)
I like when she tell me with her body language that she need me (yeah)
See my third eye is on Left Eye, I can't let them Eazy-E me
No sir (sir), I don't even do flu shots
Clique with me everywhere I go, so every pic a group shot (shot)
I done wiggled out the noose knot (damn)
They been lyin' to me my whole life, I finally found the truth out (God)
Like they don't gotta love you if they need you (whoa)
Got angels and demons on a three-way (whoa)
And they ain't comin' to no agreement
And I still be feelin' broke
If I'm gettin' money and my team ain't
Gettin' cream until we cremate (whew)
Big headlines, I'm talkin' CNN (CNN, whoa)
I see a hatin' ***** like, "Hi, it's me again" (me again, whoa)
They like, "Why you feel so good?" (Man)
I'm like, "Why I need a reason?" (Straight up, straight up, straight up)
Lot of salt, lot of shade bein' thrown my way, man
I guess it's just the season (damn, throw it)

But I gotta thank God though
'Cause he got me workin' harder than my demons (whoa, whoa)
God got me workin' harder than my demons (whoa)
God got me workin' harder than my, hol' up
God got me workin' harder than my demons
God got me workin' harder than my demons
God got me workin' harder than my

Luther Vandross, never too much (too much)
Now we two up, who, us?
Yeah, real ones learn the work through us (through)
Baby girl wanna dance, wanna groove, wanna vibe
But you know my best move is the one where you end up on my side
The ground on the mountain top feel the same as rock-bottom (bottom)
Quit my ****in' job, that's when the real work started
Still showed up every mornin', every evenin' of every season (straight up, whoa)
What's the reason? God got me workin' harder than my

Demon (mmm)
Harder than my demons (demons, harder than my demons)
Harder than my demons, demons, demons, demons
I been fightin' every season
Harder than my demons

Everything That’s Missing

length: 3:14
(Mainly, whatever the **** you say means something
That **** is in you, you ain't gotta try that hard
I just want you to know that)

There's no romancing without the pain
Just like there's no loss without some gain
Just like there's no day without a blessing
Just like no paydays without finessin'
But when who hurt you's forgiven
And all the late nights you been wishing
Finally pay off and go the distance
I pray you get everything you missing
Everything you missing, dawg
I pray you get everything you missing
Everything you missing
I pray you get everything you missing

I'm 'bout to delete my Twitter and follow my intuition
Been in and out the mud, but somehow I'm in mint condition
I wonder if granddad woulda seen these Instagram vixens
Every fifteen minutes when he had did everything that he did or he didn't
I wonder how it feels to be rapping, swear that's my ****ing passion
How it feel to go platinum, swear that's my dream but he too blind to see
That if he doing what he love in his free time, then his dream already happened
It's not about the trophy, it's 'bout what it took to grab it
And if you feeling stagnate, just know that you attracting the energy
That you put out there, you a walking magnet
Life will be a struggle but what isn't, that's worth having (huh?)

There's no romancing without the pain
Just like there's no loss without some gain
Just like there's no day without a blessing
Just like no paydays without finessin'
But when who hurt you's forgiven
And all the late nights you been wishing
Finally pay off and go the distance
I pray you get everything you missing
Everything you missing, dawg
I pray you get everything you missing
Everything you missing

New life start with a blank canvas
Tryna find yourself, you move to Lost Angeles
Where the camera's off, you still not off camera
And that meeting that's supposed to change your life keep getting canceled
Swear my prayers gon' get answered before these execs'll answer
****, expenses get too expensive, but you gon' do what it takes to do the digits
Even do the dishes, 'cause you gotta prove to the world how you committed
You got a whole city to inspire, it's so cold in the D so through they eyes you on fire
Going platinum once like catching lighting in a bottle, but you do it fifty times
And you realize contracts say a lot between the lines
But through the ups and downs, you make a blueprint that the city can build they own way out
And when they do, it's gon' feel like that you almost did it
And you buy everything you want, but it barely make you different
And you find out random *****es can't even compare to commitment
And you learn hearing doubts doesn't mean you have to listen
And you can't believe how much you made, not money, a difference
And find out everything you had was everything you missing

They coming at you, they coming at them, but they not ever coming for mine (no)
I can't invite you random hoes to my house 'cause your energy is too wack
I can't waste the sex on you and give you everything you can't give me back
If we don't have the same vision then we can't exchange contacts
I don't get mad, I don't react, I just relax (relax)
Good vibes or no vibes, my vibes, I cut the cords, no hooks, no ties
Yeah, no road blocks, kill that off road sign
I'm more like coach how I motivate mine
You more like ref how you play both sides
Can't sit around, let the day go by
Can't sit around ,let opps take your spot
Eat your food, **** your wife, look down and say **** your life
If you been down you stayed up all night, sleep deprived but wake up alright

Yeah, doing donuts in the Porsche at the dealer, listening to Dilla
The Lord always made a way, yeah, that's my *****
You used to drive the Honda Civic, *****, I remember
I was being optimistic, I ain't have a pot to piss in
I was living on my ex-girl couch, terrible
All my money kept going out, I ain't have enough to move
I felt like a vegetable, lived 2012 on a sectional
Damn, couple years later I'm living exceptional
Spent thirty thousand, my Rollie came extra gold
***** *** *****s just mad I'm gettin' on

Oh, oh, oh
Welcome to the terror dome, my, how my hair has grown
All I wanted was a Rollie and a 2Pac herringbone
Midwest kids damn near all we used to hear was Bone
Two family flat, mommy and aunt used to share a home
Boy, I'll rip your heart out and eat it while its still beatin'
For no real reason, just blame on killin' season
Circle of life, top of the food chain, my new chain a circle of ice
My name deserving the lights
The smartest thing you could do is stop music and finish school
Gotta be the dumbest **** I ever heard in my life
If yesterday is the tomb, then tomorrow is the womb
Waiting on the son of God 'cause he coming back soon, hol' up
Flash backs of me dancing in my living room was my first audition
Puff, B.I.G and Ma$E waving gold bottles in the lenses like

Never let you me go, that's the worst feeling (whoa)
I still love you like my first million
You got my hypnotized like the scene with B.I.G. and I reverse wheelin' (damn)
CÎROC boys, blue circle business, that's full circle (yeah)
Full circle like losing friends from backin' up Ye to rapping for Ye
Who dropped his first album, I was in the 10th grade
To ten years later me dropping a number one the exact same day
Swear everything comes full circle, dawg, you just gotta wait
Full circle like listening to B.I.G.
To growing up they calling you Big
Full circle like giving your first Rolex to your first kid
Full circle like exactly what the **** karma is
Full circle like every single thing I ever did

Yeah, *****s don't even make **** like this no more, haha
**** lost, it's-it's a lost **********ing art
I want the people out there in the world to hear me, though
I don't do it alone

Drop all the jealousy, that **** is gon' hurt you
Quit giving energy to ones that don't deserve you
You know everything comes full circle
I just show love, watch it come full circle
And I can never let those bad vibes inside my circle, nah
And loyalty deserves you
And tell the ****ing truth, even when it hurts too
But the most money come before the first two (straight)
Don't worry, it'll come full circle

Took all the pain that I knew and made songs
When God said, "Let there be light", he made Sean

Here I am, Miss Badu, not Big Sean
But I don't **** with you
It's 'cause I'm from the D, the other D
But Detroit has a special place in my heart
Creative, deep, rooted, organic, cosmic, fantastic, futuristic, ancient, musical
When I think of Detroit, I think of these things
There something in that dirty water that gives it its flavor
There's an invisible intelligence that runs though the streets like an underground rooting system
Millions and billions of memory of atoms of all of the beautiful music that has been created there
And I've seen it evolve into things only felt in the heart, I know this to be true
Thank you Berry Gordy, for that little house
Thank you Stevie Wonder for always calling me and reminding me that it is there, that thing
I always long to reconnect with it when I lose my way musically
Thank you J Dilla for your peculiar, peculiar intelligence
Yeah, Detroit just has a magic, and I know it to be true
Not Big Sean, but I don't **** with you
Live from Badubotron, Nubian phenomenon
Detroit, where the Nubians grow

I woke up with too much on my chest (I woke up and realized I didn't even remember my dream and)
I didn't know I gave it everything 'til I realized that I had nothing else left
Issues bleeding over from my past life (tryna take care of everybody)
I wonder
I wonder if my karma's up and this is my last life to get it right, transcend

The days are getting shorter I notice
Seems like time is moving fast forward while I'm in slow motion (slow)
Losing love ones with really no one to cope with
It's cool my third and my forth eye open (thank you, God, so much)
I dodged a cell but still locked on the cell
I never thought I'd see the day my mom wouldn't agree with Oprah and Gayle
Myra Denise was my peace of heaven on earth and living hell
Who gave me everything but never took anything for herself
Imagine, '06 Impala with zero mileage
Seventeen, baggy clothes, not like Billie Eilish
Some *****s grow old but not up, they still as childish
Demons wearing masks as my friends they favorite disguises
But *****s not gon' forget about me
Like *****s forgot about how Harriet was suppose to be on top of that twenty dollars (straight up)
Dawg, my life a scene out of Casablanca, you got it wrong, I'm the monster
Burning man Ayahuasca, my check up no diagnostic
You disappear in the D like you Jimmy Hoffa, gone
I play my part like Leo without the Oscar (damn)
Underrated, but you still gotta watch it
Yeah, maneuvered through it, I had to do it (do it)
Shows looking like Latin music
'Cept tonight we in Houston the next night it's Chattanooga
But it's still Latins that's rapping' to it
Pursuit of happiness, I had to prove it
The best part 'bout problems is problems all come with solutions
That's why I don't focus on no legacy ****
All I care about is plugging friends and fam, that's it
And being the missing link to all they goals and dreams, that's it
And sinking the winning shot while I'm triple teamed for the chip (*****)

And I'ma let my whole soul glow
I cant kick it with you no mo, can't miss no mo goals
Best linens and my ***** down like she Yoko Ono
When the reaper say its time to go, I'ma say, "No, no, no"

How am I supposed to leave all this? For what?

People are hungry for, for something that means, really means something
They're hungry man, they like, ****ing, you know what I mean they
Because their starving, they get so much bullshit you know
Bullshit, there's so much of it

What's my purpose?
Why is my purpose?
Where is my purpose?
I am purpose
When I compare my purpose to someone else's
Then it is no longer my purpose
Disconnect to reconnect (disconnect to reconnect)

Took it back to where we started just to see how far we came

I keep my inside my heart, I guess we value different things

Story by Stevie Wonder

length: 2:13
Hey, this is Stevie
I was blessed to be raised in the west side of Detroit
I lived on Breckinridge, that was the first home that we lived in
My neighborhood, where I was raised up
When the girls came around
I would sing on the front porch, beating on the stairs
And singing for hours and hours upon hours
Seeing a piano for the first time, but the amazing thing as well is through those experiences
I was able to understand how my being blind, because my mother allowed me to be free
Didn't mean that I had to be blind to the world
I may have had a visual disability but did not stop my vision inside me
I didn't know what it was like being poor because God had made me rich
Even before I was born
Rich was the spirit of knowing that anything you imagined
That's for the good, is possible to be a reality
Because a few weeks before I was discovered, I had a dream
That I heard my music, my record on the radio
I had nothing out, no one knew who I was, and, um, amazing, it really happened
And so, you know it's, I can say to other young people as I said to my son Kailand
I said listen, what you don't understand is that
God gave you a brand even before you were born
All you had to do in life is walk into it

Still I Rise

Yeah (yeah)
Yeah
What about that part (two)
Ayy, yeah
Talk your ****, what?
Ayy

Look at all the souls I saved
Look at all the O's I made (whoa)
Same outfit a couple days (yeah)
Listen to Big Sean (okay, praise, *****)

This for my baby who comin' over to buss it open (buss it)
Who get an Uber but really deserve a dozen roses (damn)
Who got her hair done and didn't think I even noticed
She just happy she chosen
But she the ones who chose me, that's what's more important (whoa)
I give her more game than problems, she love how I coach her
Under unrealistic measures is the only way you can measure who's chosen
I realized my mind frame is too big for the portrait
That's why I'm steady tryna teach the whole hood corporate
Off psychedelics while a physic tryna read my fortune
But I know knowin' too much of anything can be a torture (yeah)
She like you suppose to meet me parents, you know that's important
How narcissistic you think I am (huh), you think I did when I didn't (what?)
You think I paid for everything and didn't paid attention
Like my head is as big as my name (come on)
Just tell a real ***** once, baby, never again (swerve)
And I'll put you and all my lovesd ones on like it's my only obligation
I made all they solid wins a loud proclamation
A little pressure and a lot of patience
They tell me you amazin', I say no, God amazin'

Look at all the souls I saved (straight up)
Look at all the O's I made (yeah)
Same outfit a couple days (what about that part?)
Listen to Big Sean (okay, praise)

But just remember it's easier for mu****as to count you out than it is to count you in
So you gotta understand if they don't see where you comin' from
Or if they small minded and not thinkin' that it's enough for all of us to get it
That's why it's important to be your own boss
To some capacity you know, put yourself in control
Through the ups and downs, wins and losses, they all just chapters
Chapters in your life story and really some losses teach you how to win
You know, some losses teach you more than always winnin' ever could (ayy)
And I been there back against the ropes, against the wall
(I ain't tryna waste nobody time, don't waste mine)
That's just 'cause you the one who can handle it, you know?
(I ain't tryna waste nobody time, so don't waste mine)
****, man, you gotta prove yourself, you gotta rise the **** up (up)
Show 'em who you are, man (yeah)
You ain't gon' give me a way, okay, cool, I'll make a way, you feel me?
(Look at all the roads I paved, *****)
Ain't no mistakes, ain't no regrets
Regrets only there 'cause you ain't learned yo lesson or forgave yourself, either or
(All the times I ain't cave, yeah, ayy)
Yeah, (all we do is elevate) elevate
