I started back in of 05. Wanted to shine. Wanted to be so live but I lacked the vision and I couldn't get behind, it was like pop culture was causing me blindness. But I got sight when I prayed for a change. got a new motive, my focus rearranged, I don't want to back track, want to take it to the max, want to make an impact by making real rap. try to spit words worthy of my God. mumble rappers sound like they munching' on Tide Pods. don't blame me. It Ain't My Fault, Silkk the Shocker, rap is making no-brain followers White Walkers, because I want to be a leader - want to teach leaders. at some point the next generation's gonna lead us. Right now they need us as positive role models. I'm gon' take my roll and enroll in it full throttle. took a break but now, Jon's back. spitting flames - Scorpion, Mortal Kombat. combustible, igniting napalm contact, still keep it cool like "Hey" where the Fonz at? Gotta be a spark, be a light in the dark, go hard like I’m made of Iron Man - Tony Stark. If I gain influence, promise not to abuse it, want to make good music and do good with the music.
I won't be defined by your dreams. committed to my goals, yeah. got to do my own thing. keep up the hustling. I won't be defined by your dreams, committed to my goals, yeah. Got to do my own thing. Keep up the hustling.
(Verse Two - Rhymer/Educator)
Said my flow was elementary. I got a city that would dispute said entry (LP). Every criticism can't be complimentary. If you are not my biggest fan, you just don't get me. And that does not upset me. This fact is rudimentary. This Rhymer/Educator, I'm the best this century. If you don't have the foresight, future's temporary. I'll let society politely jog your memory (j-j-jog your memory). When your family friend requesting me, all up on my Twitter page mention me, tell'em that you doubted that's the recipe, hopefully someone'll play the referee. I am not affected by the @ me's. Cartoon opinion, fake like ACME. All in my dominion trespassing. Might've bought my tickets never had me. I'm a still sing it to you gladly.
(Verse 3 - Witte)
I'm trying to do the right thing donating to charity, so it's humbling when I ask you to pay me. But it's frustrating y'all want Witte to play free, but you open your wallet and throw money at Jay-Z? But hey, we persevere, keeping our head to the sky when it gets severe, obstacles we making'em disappear, when you eliminate fear the dream is so clear.
