about

After realizing my potential and getting back on my feet, I talk about all the progress I've made to get to this point.

lyrics

[HOOK: WordPlay T.Jay]
They can move out,
I’m a keep showing.
Ain’t slowing me down,
I’m a keep flowing.
[Verse 1]
I’m sitting at the tv watching Biggie, on the box in the living room
Way before my sister could even tie her tennis shoes
In the tube, feel the wait like an interlude
To get up out the neighborhood I had to get my pen to move
Out of tune, trying to find my groove like a record
Feeling reckless and I never fit the block like in Tetris
And my glasses thick as ever like the ass in Atlanta
I’m still on Fruitly Loops flipping words like I’m Vannah
Tryna lose my manners, gassing up my team with my banter
And I’m Hulking out screaming On The Map is my banner.
I ain’t even out, counting up the odds, Timmy Turner
Feeling famous with a couple hundred CD’s in the burner
The teacher’s favorite learner just in case it didn’t work
Screaming Nothin’ Less turning all the last into first
I started from the bottom I’m gon make it to the top
So as the clock keeps ticking all the rest is going to pop, yup.
[Hook]
[Vamp]
I say my crew run, run, run.
My crew run, run,
And ain’t no stopping my progress
I say my crew run, run, run.
My crew run, run,
And ain’t no stopping my progress
[Verse 2]
I was just a square that was good at geometry,
I stayed up in the books just to change my geography,
A young boy, stayed distracted by anatomy,
Who knew my life would change with a little trigonometry?
Hit me with the cosign, Sway was on a tangent.
Who knew this little Bama was good at flipping the grammar.
I’m ready plug in the cameras, and hurry give me the grammy’s
So I can scoop up my grammy and put her up in a mansion.
Damn, I’m feeling so fancy and style is sicker than cancer
That’s wrapped up with some e-bola and a shot of liver damage.
Ahead without an advantage, if this is it I can manage.
Acting fast like I’m mannish, impatient ready to panic.
Hungry, naw I’m famished, but I ain’t stuck on semantics.
Rather stretch out a beat, and paint that bitch like a canvas.
Look at this from my vantage, I’m gaining on a daily.
That’s why my levels going up and y’all are looking lazy.
[Hook]
[Vamp]
[Bridge]
Anything you wanted you just got it through the limits
You can keep going, ain’t no stopping at the finish.
You just clock it every minute.
Good Lord, they just watching when you’re winning.
Anything you wanted you just got it through the limits
You can keep going, ain’t no stopping at the finish.
You just clock it every minute.
Good Lord, they just watching when you’re winning.
[Hook]
[Vamp]
