I hear niggas like... what’s going on he been missing
He used to run the show, it’s been a long intermission
I remember the mission he was on it was different
He was sick, now my nigga done gone in remission

That’s what y’all think? Y’all think I lost my step
Was on a run, but had to stop and never caught my breath..
I’m drenched, I’m on the bench wit like 4 more reps
In otherwords, I got sh*t left to get off my chest

Coming up you heard the hunger in me, tough as can be
You couldn’t sound cloudy nigga nuttin was free
If u ain’t get a record deal then u was stuck in the pees
Wit dees tryna Spotify had a wonderful stream

Of income, my outcome was suttin to see
I was in the Jeep, sunk in the seat, beats bumping tryna outrap Nasir and Keep up wit Jay Z
Crumbling 16s I was only 16

Fast forward, niggas out here mumbling B
Why be smart? When niggas on the charts dumber than me
A Bunch of bums wit more money than me
So staying Complex, yea that’s a Everyday Struggle for me

I’m from when everybody wanted 5 Mics
And Riggs Morales gave u Unsigned Hype if
You rhyme right
A stretch Armstrong spin was a highlight
And all the mixtapes was 2 for 5 like treys of that Fire white

I understand why some would retire mics,
Pack up turntables the tables turned wild right?
But me I’m in it fully...
it’s like that one bitch I just can’t stop fucking man these beats to something to me

I post up on the throne
Don’t end up on a highlight poster cause you grown
Who u posed to be Malone?
I delivered like Post offices pre post Malone’s
You’d dickride if u saw what I don’t post on my phone

Ey lines a great line baby New York’s Own
It’s like I play for Jim Boeheim Boy stay in that zone
This is my house, trespassing I don’t condone
Let me be don’t be them 2 niggaz from Home Alone

And get iron in face tryna roam where you don’t belong
Brooklyn, Staten, Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx I stomps through all of that what happened?
New York I’m so proud to be yo Captain....
Enjoy the rapping
