The Beginning

lyrics

Verse 1 :

When opportunity present itself to do something greater
just say yes and learn how to do it later
gotta step in the name of love around a few haters
kill’em with kindness and send’em to meet they makers
and that could be by way of gators or incinerators
either way you ain't stopping my accelerator
I’m full steam you tryna chalk me out a line
gave up on your dreams and tryna talk me outta mine
but you was never spittin' always the wack version
playin' the victim they treatin' me like a black person
yeah they is, I don’t know what else to call that
you opened up for who? Nah my dude you gotta pause that
say it different find another way to word it
maybe its just me I hear everything perverted
try to play it cool like a tank top
but laugh every time somebody says they went to Bangkok
oooooooh!
yeah I can be a bit of a goofball
with the word play I’m fly I can’t lie I’m the truth y'all
break out the pens if you doin' it for spite
success the best revenge if you the vindictive type

Hook:
gone at the beginning
show up at the end
smiling in my face
I see through the grin
pay attention to them dudes
that act like ya friend
cheer when you lose
never clap when you win


Verse 2:

Over years I wrote alot of rhymes that never seen the light of day
backseat had the drive now I got the right of way
had my hand out thought we could do it the United Way
older now wiser beard fuller with a slight of gray
I plan to ride is you movin' or you coastin'
this is music, this is amplified human emotion
Holy Ghost rap from a power above y'all
poetic with the wordplay Darius Lovehall
funny how I get more support from strangers
even my own peoples don’t repost my bangers
no retweets they want me 6 feet in the dirt
I ain't fail I just found a million ways that ain’t work
I don’t hold no grudges beloved no burned bridges
my Renee Zell-wiggers and my Arnold Schwarze-niggas
we cool but put in some work if you wanna see some paper
cause you ain’t eating none of the fruits of my labor
they ain't haters they competitive I understand the factors
maybe they haters that’s just the nature of rappers
don’t expect too much and you’ll never be disappointed
just keep pushing the line soon they get behind and join it


Hook:
gone at the beginning
show up at the end
smiling in my face
I see through the grin
pay attention to them dudes
that act like ya friend
cheer when you lose
never clap when you win
