lyrics

Let me recollect for a sec, back when I stressed for a check/
Didn’t know I was blessed/
Happy with a whole lot less, no way for me to know that yet/
Put me to test when the world tried to put me to rest/
But that’s like a joke I don’t get/
Over the heads, what’s there to prove to vets/
I’m old news to the flex/
The dude in flesh, ya’ll just move on net/
I cut that loose on a jet/
Trends what a set, left my ends on quest/
Came back, gems in chest, never the neck/
Learned that jewel from a deck/
Taught me young to inspect funds come with request/
No gets more than a yes/
No doors closed to the best I’m always next/

I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/

This one goes to the ones who ain’t role/
When I said let’s get it that ain’t have the same goals/
Blame none, people get afraid when a vision only living in your brain and they like set stone/
Had to let lone I ain’t tripping off nobody long as they stay quiet when the mind state blow/
Don’t try pivot when you see the light hitting/
That’s the same idea but with time made so/
Seeing is believing I was dreaming bout achieving/
something I ain’t have a reason to for see that I would be in/
one day I was on defense by the next day leading Only resting when beat it & the title say O/
Renewed attitude it’s fresh, never let a view get set/
A rule gets met, nothings resistant to change/
Remain too long you forget/
I always knew/

I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/

I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already knew/
I’ma show prove I was never gonna lose/
Yeah I already/
