Alright I'm dealing with some shit homey, it's in the back of my head (1)
and it's some shit homey, but I just rap it instead
see I got wolverine bones in me
but the whole world's throwin stones at me it's like they all gotta bone with me (2)
got a child's mother, and I hate her to death
but that's my child's mother, so that's my mate to the death
It's wack how I love her for puttin little me here (3)
and me and her could beef forever, she gon still be there (4)
Then there's some other niggaz, I'm just a character to em' (5)
but they some other niggaz, now let's get back to the song (6)
I got a drug problem, that I aint tending to (6)
because I got enough problems
and my solution is to stuff problems
but if something goes wrong with that
then it's back to pcp and solong with rap
see I'm depressed lately, but nobody understands
that I'm depressed lately, I'm sorta feeling repressed lately
When all they hearin and seein me less lately (7)
like has anyone noticed the regress lately (8)
look deep nigga don't I seem stressed lately
seem disturbed, by the regress lately (9)
I got a company that I'm signed to
but they ain't in my company, when all I need is some company
when I start feelin like everybody's done with me
I tryna see what everybody want with me
then the mistress, yeah, the girl from ten minutes is huff (10)
now I'm needing ten minutes from her (11)
I can't get into it, but I want y'all to know
that I'll get into it, but I'll save that for the growth
then theres rap beef, but I'm so secure with me (12)
it's only rap beef, I don't need se-cu-rity (never)
wanna get at me, wanna go to war with me
that's just one phonecall for me
check the shit, I got a whole hood, that don't appreciate
it's not the whole hood that depreciates me (13)
what you gon tell me, when it's the streets that made me
and I won't let the belly of the beast degrade me
and then there's rap critics, they say all I make dance music (14)
but to almost anything you can dance stupid (15)
they ain't like the single, so they ain't copped that album
wouldn't give a chance to it, not a second glance to it
they say he wines to much, he's too bitter
they call it complaining, I call it explaining
Now normal niggas could get caught up in the game and (16)
lose they mind and y'all call it entertainment
some shit with me, but dude's been knew that (17)
but I'm gambling a lot and I ain't used to do that (I didn't) (18)
If rap ain't payin the bills, it's mo money mo problems (19)
or it's no money mo problems
all enormous when you play at these stakes
Plus how it feel to have a warrant on a famous face (20)
then the album's pushed back, cause they say he needs a single at the moment
but what he needs is a single moment
then I'm involved in the 'he say she say (that)
that's on my mind on replay, each day (21)
then it's the bullshit that she say he's gay (22)
cause she wouldn't like to think that he ain't like her
just cause she was throwing it at me and I ain't touch her
she'll say anything aside from, I ain't wanna fuck her (23)
I don't feel good, so I don't wanna go to a club (24)
don't wanna go to a lounge, just wanna lounge
In the same sweats that I had on for days (25)
same t I had on for a week, what I got on it speaks (26)
what I got on, it reeks
no shape up, sean, cause that's just how I'm feeling (27)
and one day at a time, is god willing (28)
I'm tryna see straight but the fog keeps building (29)
Pulse starts racing the bull startin to hate me (30)
but I gotta be a king cause there's wolves tryna play me (31)
hoodie when it's hot like it's freezing winter (32)
rap star, eat and sleep for dinner (33)
and it's hard tryna keep this in ya (34)
so I write it all down, so one day maybe when life is all sweet I remember
then it's probation, I know we all go through it
we call it probation, but there's no pro to it
and my soul's aching, only a few peers know (35)
funny thing about the case is it's a few years old
had some shit going on with my ohh, that felt good but it's bad
so I'm sitting here like what the bitch had
it's not rap it's real, look scrappy it's true
knowin what's popping, do I (we) look happy to you (36)
now if it goes to the wire, got the soul of a fighter (37)
bruised up and sloppy, or damaged like Ali (38)
up late talking to the fans on a website
that's the only thing that send yo man off to bed right
fuck the world fuck my moms and my girl

well maybe not mom, just let me remain calm
this dude won't last, this dude shall pass (39)
at least that's what I say yall, that's what I pray for
and I'm the only thing that's standing in my way yall
but I gotta be with me, it's no escape yall
I guess the pressure just stepped in, and took over shit like it's known to do (40)
Guess it's that haze yo I'm goin home with you (41)
Turn your phone off, I need to be alone with you
I need to be in the zone with you
Cuz I'm the only thing you've grown to, nigga (42)
Look, I own you, nigga
Been with you since 10, but you starting to confuse me
cause it's been so long and you still tryna lose me
Like how, could you show me such cruelty
When everybody turns their back on you, Joe it's you and me
Still you don't want me to see you right
And why you always come get me, how we re-unite
(Tell me) I know you feel for me deep in your heart (43)
Doctors, meetings, pills couldn't keep us apart
But now you got a deal and you, wanna get rid of me (44)
(But) We're roommates, I'm in your head, Joe you live with me (45)
So I don't write for the fans, nah, I write to my man
In hopes that he'll just leave and understand (46)
Like, like please leave the kid in peace
Let me smoke this one cig in peace
Just leave for a second, and it's been too long, and I can't group it (47)
As long as you around I can't make that dance music (48)

I'll do whatever it takes, to find a way (49)
to find a way
to find a way
whatever it takes, to find a way
to find a way
to find a way
I'ma do whatever it takes, to find a way
to find a way
to find a way
Whatever it takes, to find a way
to find a way
to find a way
