I'm sitting in the whip dreaming about 20 acre estates, Ruth chris steaks and how to sell records like drake I'm on the road tryna get to a show No speed limit posted so I'm taking it slow, Trying to memorize a couple of lines switch the set last minute like I do sometimes. I get a call from my man Roq, from the block, telling me a rumor that made my heart stop- what the deal? RoQy: What the hell,the cops slain Dante and Jemel, on Broadway, the car frame concave from the shells it was eerie... (Ran) Wow now I'm mad and im getting depressed but tell me weren't those guys yelling and resisting arrest? (RoQy) Don't be apathetic, ya act like theyre in traffic flexing, they're on camera asking question, harrassed by the damned detective aggressive, demands incessant, end up killed by a pig like Stannis brethren the captain said that he grabbed the weapon treacherous, they'll morgue a dude before the morning news Ran I'm warning you, it's BLM bruh careful when you rollin through... (Ran) Damn they really doing brothers like that? (DJ DN3) (Man I wish it wasn't true but you can check the stats man) (Ran) I mean, damn they really doing brothers like that? DN3 (Aight get up of this phone I'mma hit u right back) (Roqy) They heard about the nerdy rap songs and the Capcom if you're flashed on, livestream (Ran) Word aight, peace - Back on track, straight away so I clear through til of course I see flashing lights through my rear view, Thought about smooth talk but I'm not gone try I'm blasting Isaac Hayes hoping that he walk on by Pulled me over by a gas station, I'm being mad patient, insurance was due, did I make my last payment? My license and plates are up to date Maybe you cant tail gate too close in this state He probably gonna ask about Contra band, Highway patrol cats can be some monsters man Porn stashes and corny glasses, flaunting badges, intimidation tactics pray this ain't Gone be tragic He sitting in the car didn't even come out He probably waiting thinking imma go and throw gun Out, huh I think of Alton, and Eric Garner and Sandy Bland As I'm preparing to exit the mini van, yeah, There's gonna be a lot of viewers watching And fewer options If this cop decides to do some poppin, It's like I'm tryna set a record How many times can I be pulled over without getting arrested It's the ones that tell jokes witcha Seen ya picture Then they turn the sirens on to try to get ya Betcha Ran won't slip, I stay cool as a fan I know my rights, imma stick to the script Finally he steps out to come towards me Hand on his side arm like he about to floor me I take a deep breath, my license in my hand, straight shook, contemplating going live on Facebook Keys out the ignition and I'm shaking where I'm sittin, wishing this encounter doesn't end in prison, Wow now what's the backup for, All purpose war,thinking put the foot to the floor I'm not runnin, cause I ain't do nothing Hold on I think he's finally coming...
Re-Introducing the Black Nerd cat from illadel Middle class kid in last place but livin well Yeah I switch locales but the hood still in me I look friendly, but go 0 to 60 in a jiffy You get me? Grew up on Biggie and Nas Ra's lines leave a crowd paralyzed like Droz, No shots, but I'm coming from the attitude era Bathroom passes, cutting classes, droppin acid Far from Placid, the outcome is tragic, But pressure make diamonds so we gone make a classic You know my steelo, the rap keynote Speaker with the gold voice so you ain't got no choice - but to listen, when I'm spittin Navi of the alley Never had a caddy, keep my domepiece nappy Construction timbs, and champion hoods Survived the roughest blocks like only a champion could Uh Lord have mercy Jesus Christ he's just nice he just slice, like he emeril Shine like emerald They green wit envy Fresh kils sent me to set it on MC's No grief, every body get a piece The obese nerd rapper from the east The rap lines - hard to find press rewind if you feelin it, You still ain't gettin it, what are you an idiot? Hot damn yo Here we go again Sound like it's 94 again And we goin in Like we seen an opening Mega Ran fresh kils and you know we gonna win win Phill: Live from Phoenix, Arizona, tag the corner And off the top rope, Ianding on ya "Oh Yeah" Like the Macho man, in the past Got an elbow lined up to snap ya'll in half I’m going global, from Japan to Germany They heard of me, my man big Ran, wanted a word from me You want me over this beat? (Yeah give it the third degree. So work with me) Assuredly, my style fit it perfectly, I’m from the land where the sun abundant, from the desert To the mountain summits, where the falcons plummet Getting love to let my mouth runnith, over I told ya Who want it, who ready to die, steady the eye (Slow down Phil you killing em) I'm building, the skills To fill, pavilions, this beat, I'm trying to kill it In an instant, for instance, the inference, I'm spitting At a speed faster than windsprints, leaving an imprint Chorus 2x
Ran: I know how it feel to wake up caked up, Everything love-ly then suddenly a pay cut People look at you like it's your fault Bills don't stop so now you gotta do your part We Products of tough schools chasing Money and truck jewels, taught that was the only way to bust through Like these shorties in Virginia, put a couple hollows in ya - leave ya laying by the river just to prove that they was some hittas. Hit uncle bobby didn't even need to rob em - if they asked he would probably gave his last to anybody 2 families broken, damage irreparable Hasn't been the same since I doubt that it ever will Can't help thinking if somebody woulda told em, they were kings and then showed em/ The direction they would go in Cause GED, wasn't RAN, PH.d or bust, I was always in Some kinda summer program in the burbs Kuhn Day Camp Props to the parents who try to do all they can Cuz yo- I said it before and said it again, The Only real gangsters are in federal pens Or dead on a whim, it's a game you never can win pick another vocation to be competitive in And Catch it if you can like the gingerbread man Success is always the plan, but man Hook The struggle is real the struggle is true Sometimes nobody understands the struggle but you But we gotta get right And we gone get by (some how some way some day ) Penny: The school that im from not too many people survived The streets ate them alive too much pride to work a nine to five The way we came up tho im really not surprised A lot of Rage in our blood we decendents of a lost tribe And i can only speak on mines when i tell my story Had to make a buck fast since i was a shorty No glory in the struggle but it taught me how to hustle Be slicker than hair greese and slide up out of trouble I rather wake up early so i can get a fresh start Theres no mercy in this world so u gotta have a strong heart You gotta pay your bills, you gotta feed your kids u cant make no excuses u just handle biz Develop mental calus so my thoughts are never weak Im taking chances with my freedom everyday up on these streets Some people never understand they life is in a bubble So ima tell the story of my everyday struggles Chorus (2x) Jermiside: too many things that tear my heart, don't know where the start/ try to never spare a dart, so yo lemme share a part/ hard when you glare around and everywhere you stare is dark/ should i leave it unsaid? or everything is fair in art?/ fears of the unknown that hover like a canopy/ how can it be I'm trying but feel I’m failing my family/ whether if I hustle with mics or move mechanically/ all the strife larger than life just like a manatee/ staring at the vanity, I zone/ while fighting with myself to keep my sanity and tighten up my home/ wishing I could maybe brighten, even lighten up dome/ brain clashin like a titan as writing up a poem/ I'm getting paid penny, mistakes I made many/ but still I gave plenty jewels ain't no slave in me/ gotta play to win, when the walls caving in/ gotta fight hard just like a lifeguard saving men/
I kick flows for ya, rip mad shows for ya Even leave wifey sick Alone at home for ya Brothers think this that easy life Homie picture that on the Snapchat, Then Filter that - it difficult in fact Lay the game down quite flat But this day wasn't like that November a couple months back These kinda choices that we got make me wanna get Bush back- I'm messing witchu The election of the century I remember like yesterday, I'm up in Minnesota, THe tour almost over Ridin through middle America reading these trump signs Me and Lars laughing like they out they mind, ha... Turns out, The team Spent a couple mill Throw a 5 in front, Called hilLary Conniving stunt Y'all ride with Trump Rather deal with her Ain't no fear in her But What about Benghazi huh? She giggled, thinking she had it in the bag> Never thinking of the possibility of coming last Advisors like man you better talk to em Last debate put a spark to em Now the scenery is lookin dark to em But he got heart to em, tape leaking dirty parts to em All- bad I'm praying this stops as the date gets closer Women saying that he groped her It's getting gross-uh! Thankfully it's almost a wrap Worst campaign in history they both fall flat We on stage just- cool as a fan, mics in hand Know they won't elect that man But they can and they will though Im tryna chill though Even though these results are looking kinda ill yo I keep singing all the songs I wrote Thinking bout most of the homies that I know don't vote, And how I hustled from the road to get my absentee ballot in No doubt in my mind this cat won't win 1130 the results looking shaky Trump winning the west coast we can't escape eem Same dude who put his name on steaks Ran a campaign tryna make America great And they bought it, even lost the popular vote But got the electoral college man this ain't no joke "Give him a chance they said" Discriminating in housing "Give him a chance they said" Fake school scammed thousands "Give him a chance they said" But his cabinets racist And this who gone bring us to greatness? Sigh. Anyway, I got to move from the screen Every 3 seconds I'm swearing this is a bad dream -> Grab the keys to the whip put the merch in as well, Bring some weed I got a story to tell (scratches) Y'all ain't gone believe this man Remember Donald trump? The dude from the apprentice? Caught a stone cold stunner at wrestlemania? Yooo son is the president b.. yeah man
