I don't wanna shine, wanna glow
Don't wanna rhyme no mo
I just wanna pine or po'...
up, a cup full of slime then recline
no time for hoes
Hmmm. Seem some niggas don't know
Seems some niggas don't know
I bleed quite a bit don't show
Stitch, stitch, let's go
Everything that glitter aint gooooold!!!
But it's bronze, when it's wrong
I just write. My girl Left.
I just leave. I do shows.
Get paid. Get blowed. I get faded.
Get home. And my income is low.
I'm like "Get some, get some!!!"
This kick drum is throwed.
I get kicked. Make a beat.
I make feats. This is gold.
My feats aint my toes!
My feats are my goals!
I was trippin' like a muthafuckah!!!

Aint life grand?
Aint life grand?
Sometimes I hate life man.
But really aint life grand?
I got a great life maaaaaaan.
I should shake my hand!

Still, going through SHIT more TP please.
Girl Audi/outy like TT need no TP-2 just BP3
On to the Next on repeat (Preach)
EPT full of pee pee, seed on the way, no dice, breathe deeply see?
Briefly thought about the weekly fee for the feces.
Briefs aint cheap. RELIEF!
Close call. Phone calls missed em.
Dismissed em before a show job nixed him like Nixon.
Impeached. But, since peach fuzz the description I got of life?
It aint glisten. It's a bitch. Not, bitching.

Too hot in the kitchen.
Thinking product need some pitching.
Thinking holla at a gram (hologram)
Tupac intermission.
Aint got two pots here to piss in.
Never knew bout my position…
getting the glue out of my shoes soon as I stepped into that system.
Im a jukebox. I know you hot cuz I jukes y'all frickin' system.
What ya bon' do bout that. I'm rooftop with the bourgeois sipping Glenlivet.
I was livid. Now I live it.
I was dirty like rice with liver.
Now I'm clean like Target Cds.
You don't wanna target kevlar Yvey.

For the beat thank T-O-D-D
Promoter dont C-O-D me
If that money funny y'all can't get shit from me. Constipated.
Till I'm promptly compensated my,
Delivery not ton' make it I'm,
Deliberately this way.
What an obnoxious occupation!!!
I don't got time for contemplating, anymore nonsense.
Promise my patience just bout faded
Imma be blatant. Im about this plate in front of me and the contents placed in.
After my entree y'all get an encore.
They would starve me if I was on tour.
Would rather parlay and/or partay rather than partake in apartheid.
But its Black and White right now.
Can't get peacetime until wartime.
1300 hours won't be 1 pm until its about 1300 flowers.
Watch a twenty one gun salute y'all don't get Jumpstreet till gunpowder nigga.

Aint life grand?
Nigga aint life grand?
Sometimes I hate life. MAAAN!
But really aint life grand?
I got a great great life man.
Y'all should shake my hand.
