I said don’t worry bout it scrap keep doin what you doin flood the internet with music make sure the quality match the quantity when you do it stay true to yourself own your publishing and masters long as it feeds your soul then that’s all that really matters Hook: See my goal is to, make music while feelin' like a million live life and leave somethin' for my children I’m well rounded I plan to aim high but stay grounded leave this place a little better than I found it and stay moving round and round, round and round, round and round I’m tryna keep the karma goin' for my peoples movin' round and round, round and round, round and round and keep that money circulating with my peoples feel me? Verse 2: For me I need more than the beat just to be good you gotta be saying something these requirements from T. Wood man only if these walls could talk the way these streets could seen some fools turn to old mules like Clint Eastwood don’t trade 2 years of ballin' for 30 years of jail that math don’t add up I don’t care if you learned it at Yale having ya mama sell her house so you can make bail you know them cameras can’t wait to capture your epic fail keep pressin' no stressin' forget mistakes and learn lessons you got possession block obstacles and keep receiving blessings ain’t no participation trophies in this profession some my songs might advise parental discretion ain't no resting keep moving with aggression avoid my idols, so they don’t ruin my perception and my focus, "ain't nobody comin' to see you Otis" no Temptations, I ain’t in no rush to make no quotas y'all rap for quarters chump change outta sofas drink tickets and sodas, pay to play to be the openers don’t need to be the dopest in this race whatsoever I ain’t much a runner but I keep walking forever Hook: See my goal is to, make music while feelin' like a million live life and leave somethin' for my children I’m well rounded I plan to aim high but stay grounded leave this place a little better than I found it and stay moving round and round, round and round, round and round I’m tryna keep the karma goin' for my peoples movin' round and round, round and round, round and round and keep that money circulating with my peoples feel me?
