Turn my music up high,
Now get cha hands up real high.

Having dreams rocking Madison Square
Stadium packed – 30,000 hands up in the air
Like they don’t care,
Saying “if you make it here, you can make it anywhere”
So I’ll take it right there.
And I’ll do it from a place where the history’s a pity
‘stead of shutting down the street
We’ll be shutting down the city
No Frank Sinatra at the opera
brought a symphony
the horns take a stab,
as I blow the track to smithereens*
Pardon me,
But we’ve been left out in the cold
Trying to carve a little piece in a world not our own
Now I’m starting up a plan, to build a planet in a day
‘stead of standing in the centre
I’ll be setting up the stage/ only to be engulfed in flames
No breaks or timeouts
my back was against the wall,
only then, I blackout onto a packed house cheering
hear it in the sky
when I take it on a plane
as I say, yeh, get cha hands high.

Made it ma,
Tell the world, if they hear me tho’
All I wanted was my dreams lived through a stereo
Never need a mansion
Just a standing room, sold out
Without sellin out
And my legacy told out*
Taken back to days
When I was a teen
While my friends were out wildin’
I was writing sixteens/
As my momma saw the drama
And I got in troubled states
saw my lyrics, got concerned
never as a saving grace**
The first time I got up on the microphone
Such a righteous tone
Trying to sound like the next
And incite their flows
I let my voice speak,
Perfect plan was to attack
But the matter of fact is,
realized that i was wack***
So I took a little time,
As I listen to my peers
Kept reminding me to grind
This might take a couple years
Now I look up at the crowd
After all the paid debt
I give thanks
As I leave with your respect
