May the optomism of tomorrow be your foundation for today

The spotlight on my fans
Sunshine, I can't tell a lie
No need to say it but they just wanna hear it now
No need to say it but they just wanna hear it now
(I can't lie I feel quite phenomenal today baby)
{That new black soul}

[Verse 1:]
I was in the business when you was chasin' the (pussy)
Now I got the dollars I'm tryin get my position
Couple bad decisions I got some character issues
Although I'm never slippin like student parent permission
Yes I am aware that America tryna get me
So I let my friends carry paraphernalia
Before I love a industry girl I'll marry civilian
Picture a young, rich former taking me serious
Although I hit my stride, ain't even in prime (nah)
Singles in the chart make a broad lose top these days
You ain't gotta do nothin to pop these days
Instagram is runnin they thoughts these days
62 joint, got me Doug-in on em
Humbled that my (shit) dropped now I'm stuntin on em
You better know that you overdo for some better endings
That's who whoever develop second guessing they blessing


{I just need you to vibe with me real quick, we came from nothin}

[Verse 2:]
I don't like to boast but they ain't touchin' the flow (nope)
[?] Therapy so put errything in this cone
My only fear is marriage she scared of bein alone
She settle for this bread so therein should be a trophy
I'm a prolly marry somebody already familiar
VH1 10 and I'm not thinkin about these [?]
Can do without opinions
Another brother caught up in the business
Had that lock since I lost my scholarship
I been gettin it to my old coach and ballin
Rose gold was forty Know these (niggas) recordin
Make (niggas) grab the forty
See me I thought money would change it it got worse
But it's alot better than screamin "who got work?" (who got work?)
I'm openin it from back to packin out 9: 30
I never sold crack when crack rappin was workin
With that fact it's back packin and murkin
Gettin that Bobby Heenan while you Mr. Perfect


(Folarin the genius)
(I told you this that new black soul (woo)
(We ain't posed to never ha)
(We ain't posed to never have)
