My life accelerated, but had to wait my turn. But then I redecorated, that means my tables turn.
Life is a movie, pick your own role, climb your own ladder or you dig your own hole.
Tables do turn and labels do burn/ The second they ask you to sell your soul/ Don’t you do it, don’t you fold/ Say ‘f— that sh–‘ and be bold
To look behind and say, “Look where I came/ Look how far I done came”/ They say that dreams come true/ And when they do, that there’s a beautiful thing
My n—a visibly stressed in a mess he’s smoking his blunt/ What could I say? I can’t relate to that/ All I do is pray for that/ This the city god told me ‘go and make it’ at.
I’m on deck, I’m up next/ I’m god bless, I’m success, so f— stress.
It’s beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success/ Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress/ I grew up in the city and though sometimes we had less/ Compared to some of my n—as down the block, man, we were blessed.
Cole World, n—as ran for that heat/ As the globe twirl gotta stay up on your feet.
One day your daddy called me, told me he had a funny feeling
so I’m leaving you this record, for your eyes only
We got dreams and we got the right to chase ’em, Look at the nation, that’s a crooked smile braces couldn’t even straighten.
I always feel like it’s two key ingredients when it comes to following your dreams, making something happen that the average person deems difficult. If you truly believe it, that’s step one. Step two, is, you know, the hard work that goes along with it.
Far from the richest rapper, but my biggest personal achievement thus far in my life has been retiring my mom early from her job at the Post Office. It’s a tiny payback for the sacrifices she made that allowed me to chase a far-fetched dream of becoming a successful artist. I’m forever grateful.
I gotta make a move, I gotta do this now, If they don’t know your dreams, they can’t shoot ’em down.
There was the time I bought three cars in the span of three or four weeks. It was crazy; it wasn’t greedy. It was mine, my girl’s, my mom’s. I got Benzes for my ladies. But I felt crazy. You have to understand I come from a world where we’re very modest. But that’s not greedy. That’s nice, right?
I know you fake niggas well, ain’t no test to me.
