If you see me If you see me If you see me walking down the street one day If you see me walking down the street one day, Don’t say nothin to me ‘Cause you did me wrong when i was doing bad, So bad i didn’t think i was gonna make it Now that I’m alone, I’m feelin free Freer than a butterfly flying high now I don’t claim no riches or any miracles, But I’m doing better on my own So if you see me, walk on by Don’t say nothin, just walk on by Do yourself a favor, and just walk on by Don’t say nothin, just walk on by

i see my niggas from a mile away i see them bigger from a mile away i see a hater from a mile away i'll see them later, I'm a mile away i see a shooter from a mile away i see a suitor from a mile away i see my future from a mile away i know we all are bound for brighter days
8.
i want my arm with the hot iron scar i want my leg with the flea bite my callus feet, and my quick language back in my mouth my fried plantain, pineapple-pear juice, and jewels i want my things! i'm wrestled with conflicts centered on topics of liberation! i'm riddled with demons, it's time to release them once and for all! i'm dealing with burdens I never deserved, yet i'm responsible! the wheels gone keep turning, and imma keep burning, so baby roll up!
9.
the moment we put value on us... the moment we say "we're enough... we're enough, we're valuable"; that's when we change the story. but as long as we feel like white water taste better, we're still gonna be in this position
10.
EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR think about it - they knew! why they copy every single thing that we do? why they flex in plain daylight like we won't shoot back at 'em like cooked crack with the wrong move? EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR i do this 'cause i like it my speaker knockers buss ya head to the white meat i could tell when I shook your hand that you'd prolly spite me EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR i'm a leo so i prefer to cook with high heat ask me for a heater with no herb, I tell ya fight me cross me, i'll make you fineas and ferb, that's step lightly 'long as you respect me, I could care less if you like me EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR my mission's bigger than your trite beef my kitten could never quiver for no white meat but i'll lick you and make you shiver, just invite me if it takes love to make love, then baby shape up and take some of what I got for ya if it takes money to make money, somebody pray for me, that great comings are bound for me if it takes time to make time, before we waste time, let's break down this line from straight if it takes love to make love, then baby shape up and take some of what I got for ya EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR yes - that includes me n you, ya moms dad cousin sisters dey n dem too when it comes to light, me and my bitches got a susu when it comes to dick me and my riches got it bluetoothed EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR authoritarian aquarian is my saturn so when it comes to you and me, i do this for the latter angel numbers constantly tell me I matter EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR i do this 'cause i like it and my speaker knockers buss ya head to the white meat i could tell when I shook your hand that you'd prolly spite me ask me for a heater with no bread, I tell him fight me EVERY NIGGA IS A STAR i'm a leo so i prefer to cook with high heat cross me, i'll make you fineas and ferb, that's step lightly 'long as you respect me, I could care less if you like me
11.
should i give up privacy so i can pay my rent? should i take a policy out on my tax sponsored dissent? should i grow some more green before i take another hit? 'cause i gits weary on the regular! should i speak up about the shit i'm dealing with? it's like no matter what I try, I can't shake this feelin, yeah is it my spirit crying, or is it the psilocybin? 'cause I can feel it on the regular! if to build and destroy is to be divine, then all I really want is peace of mind...
12.
sleep in my eye but still I gotta rise we wind thru cycles of time yet we transcend this life who's supposed to ride or die for me, if not i? fear not, know that you're divine! real negus never die
13.
Forreal??? 02:39
before I put this pussy on your sideburns, I need to check in with my heart and mind and make sure that we aren't movin from a place of lack before I let you give it to me fast and slow, there's somethings my spirit has to know, sometimes you gotta eat that thang from the back but i'm not talking about eating feline, i'm talking about getting the peace of mind of knowing that what I have is for me so, as tempting as it would be, to let that thang all up inside of me, i'd rather maintain security i really wanna fuck on you in this time of war 'cause ain't it really love that we all are fighting for i really need to keep my mind on my bag forreal 'cause really most these niggas ain't got no swag forrreal
14.
FWU 03:00
i'm better than older versions of me i've a veteran when it comes to defeat my skeleton's never bend to be broken my melanin's ever-present in me the storm in me questions whether to chill, or continue to let rage tether my will to build until then, i'd rather feather my quill so pass me the fire, i'm tryna get higher i'm wrestled with conflicts center on topics of liberation i'm riddled with demons, it's time to release them once and for all i'm dealing with burdens I never deserved, yet i'm responsible the wheels gone keep turning, and imma keep burning, so baby roll up and... no matter what u do, please don't pass my spliff around the room if you fwm u gonna always send that shit right byke to me
15.
so many sleep in a sea of ascension I'd rather drown before I wake we bathed you and raised you, and yet you still beg for vindication in our space so many wonder how much longer we must suffer some say that heaven starts at home I wonder how many people will kill before awaiting dethronement can't you stand on your own? can't your work breathe it's own life? i can't wait to be alone, to be one with my blackest fire we deserve to go home! our souls will never be owned again! we can thrive on our own and rid ourselves of these nu world burdens
16.
Keep it Real 03:01
you know what I got won't you work wimme? I'm tryna take it to the top I never meant to hurt your feelings you can never throw dirt on mine rebuking any curse on we I promise you, these words don't lie I only know how to keep it real
