I’m the one they overlooked, you see nobody understood,
how he gon reach the people, he ain’t even from the hood,
he ain’t even tatted up, i wonder if he tough enough,
to any haters pucker up, I deliver bars Iike upper cuts,
tho I was never upper crust,
my little middle class ass, was past spendin cash on fashion,
copped so many comic books, got lost in a dream and imagined,
that I could be anything outside the box sin,
my wingspan make these circle city blocks seem,
smaller than before,
cuz all I wanted was more,
more time, more trust,
more love, more us,
more her, more them,
more enemies turned to friends,
well I finally made amends,
cuz indy gave me a blend,
of the purpose and direction,
35% of reflection
is acceptance of the lessons learned,
I’m in the public eye until it’s time for court adjourned,
key to the city, who got it locked like a quarter turn?

The only thing I ever really needed was respect, the only thing I ever really cheated was just death

So i’ma do it til it’s nothin left, what I been through, you couldn’t even guess…so i’ma leave you to the rest
