Envisioning to hear and after/
Listening to Van Hunt/
On a pursuit for truth, like it’s a manhunt/
On all occasions yo my jam thump/
They talking what man they can’t front/
Even in a slump I rhyme better/
Define pleasure for chumps/
When I grunt n**** my s*** bump like the second trimester/
Don’t nobody want the smoke or the flame/
I was on my Solange. I tried to drink it away/
Now I’m back with the wraps in the mirror like I’m Issa Rae/
Trying to plan for tomorrow when I need today/
Time to tighten up n***** all around me like, you need to lighten up/
Sammy Sosa s***/
I’m like, if I write enough, the s*** will seem sweeter/
Pendulum indeed, my inspiration teeter
Back-and-forth like an AI cross/
Trying to do it by myself that’s how a I lost/
Ain’t no kennel for this underdog/

Out of my lane & im all in ya’lls/
Been long distance like a calling cards/
Before money was in banks it was my girl’s bra’s/
A to C my degree set to never thaw/
Clever Odd never soft yet never hard/
Middle man A to C bet I B involved/
Never lost rocked a W on top the skull/
Out park, from creek is was found in Shaw/
Bound to ball like it life this is never cos/
I don’t play unless my daughter got a weekday off/
Even then she in my arms and the mic is on/
ro-wave, roe wade yeah ya life is gone/
Pro choice I always ask if you want the smoke/
Serious I’ll turn your dreams to the brunt of jokes/
The I in team if Mayweather was writing quote/
Toine and Odd, PG county we the sons of hope/

The ME of the MD was mine in volts/
I know stylish shooters that will pull it out the totes/
Bars, gold like what made Levi’s stitch denim/
When y’all get rhythm, AliExpress/
These is Desiigner flow’s/

In my city we pull heaters out the liners/
I pull heaters off the vinyl check the sleeve for the liner notes/
Calling it quits not conceivable til my time to go/
Bars like a row full soft drinks line of coke/

In other words, look, man, you’re kind of dope/
We spice the track like we cooking some kind of roast/
The thing about the old days them the old days/
And I take y’all words with a grain of old bay/

Two giants who ain’t never learn obey/
Rule breaker since the ruler feature on part tre/
Optimistic even when the plan Shar Pei/
Getting a tan the only time I see dark day/

Fitting to bounce, like Spaulding on Parque/
RIP, Bill Russell/
Me and oa go back the long way/
Shout out to all my friends/
We keep it moving on from now to what end/
Yeah, from now to what end/
We keep it moving on from now to what end/
From now to what end/
We keep it moving on from now to what end/
