lyrics

You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it
You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it


Now homie, what you getting here is nothing phony
hot shit only not a one trick pony
back in '02 when I first started pluggin'
I could tell who was in this for real and who wasn't
it played out exactly the way I predicted
it was a phase for some, the rest of us got addicted
I laugh at when I reminisce and have a flash back
sneaking my MP out the crib in a trash bag
cause the dudes around my way they had ninas
back in the day they kill you for a pair of Alpinas
I never looked for drugs and still find'em
while stepping over needles, crack viles, and used condoms
Happ blessed me with some bangin' production
but my road to success is still under construction
out here tryna resist temptation like David Ruffin
hustlin', busy making somethin' out of nothin'


You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it
You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it


What sets me apart allows me to carve my niche
I give you my heart it's big and it's hard to miss
that's what she said 'oooooh' I'm marvelous
original that's what being a artist is
atypical be your own critic
see the whole picture pick your role in it
I don't reinvent the wheel I roll with it
I feel like I'm bending steel it's so vivid
these days stars are made in five minutes
these days kids don't pay they pirate it
skills don't pay the bills and sell tickets
the business of making hits is all image
I'm authentic and sick of charades
four words four syllables get pimped and paid
money and fame they can help you get laid
when the record is spun you're the one that gets played


You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it
You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it


ayo I write and spend mad nights up in the crib
but back in '98 I was almost stuck with a kid
you know, dumb young bul tryna ball and get money still
fuckin' with this jawn from the mall out Montgomeryville
I often wonder how my life would be different
if I ain't convince shorty she should go to the clinic
maybe I woulda gave up this music to be a father
or my kid woulda been the push I need to go harder
been more successful, further along
in five minutes or less I probably murder a song
in one take on some Jay shit
from day to day I feel like Ye with the spaceship
but nowadays I'm a married ass man cuz, I don't even sweat chicks
I'm in the crib writing hits watching Netflix
I link with cats like Happ and Lefco
who tryna make great music at the same time get doe


You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it
You know what sets me apart?
I put my life in it
you know what make me stand out?
I put my life in it
you see my glory but you don't know my story
I'm in my own category cause I'm so nice with it
