lyrics

Verse 1
Aight let’s get to the business
Young, black, and the gifted
Affirm the action myself I can’t chew on no meal ticket
On Jigga wisdom, 22s—44s and more, I’m swangin’
Thuggin’ through this life, slim, I’m still tippin’ (now screw it down)
Hammer away I got every tool I need to build a house
Site is live, visit, login, you should go and bookmark it now
Dribblin’ through like IT on the court
Even with tall orders, can’t afford to come up short
Please be kind, it’s a small world, my friend
Don’t sleep on the power of the rooms you in
Took a pen to the scroll, learned the rules, then demolished ‘em
Cracked a new code just to polish, so follow this.

Chorus
Live out my dreams till my heart give out
I got no room for doubt, no room for doubt
Rose from the concrete, bloomin’ out
Way the clouds, you know what I’m about
I know that green rule everything around me
That’s fine as long as my soul stay free
Womb to the tomb you gon’ hear me shout
I got no room for doubt, no-no-no-no-no

Bridge
Who wanna bet us that, we don’t reach the (peak!)
Of the mountain top, better yet beyond your wildest (dreams!)
Where you’ll find me at, cut loose what I need to let go
Before I take off, gotta drop off—my manifesto (whoa!)
Breaking way past the threshold (whoa!)
Gotta live it in my flesh tho (whoa!)
Put my word to the test so, let’s go

Verse 2
Grow at my own pace, HGH hittin’ the heart
Daddy keepin’ his spark, mom a pillar of grace
Time got wild echoes when t-t-ti-tickin’ you off
Minute hand can’t test my palm of patience tho, I’m holding the ace
Run into unc on the train, brief time to kick it, asked how’s business
Tells me plots of expansion on how to get to that chicken forreal
Buffalo boss, soldier, asked my plans, I told him
Keep my word at kickin’ these flows up
I’m gon’ do just what I say, not expecting all the praise
Do your best, then funk it, I heard the Atomic Dawg once say
Finna graduate, my cousin finally free, both liberate
Finna blast off this time, he got rocket in his name
Remind to be kind baby, it’s a small world!
Less degrees between us keeping it thorough
I know vibes are felt, but I had to write these down
So on them cloudy days, they’ll shine back around (like now!)

Chorus
Live out my dreams till my heart give out
I got no room for doubt, no room for doubt
Rose from the concrete, bloomin’ out
Way the clouds, you know what I’m about
I know that green rule everything around me
That’s fine as long as my soul stay free
Womb to the tomb you gon’ hear me shout
I got no room for doubt, no-no-no-no-no

Bridge
Who wanna bet us that, we don’t reach the (peak!)
Of the mountain top, better yet beyond your wildest (dreams!)
Where you’ll find me at, cut loose what I need to let go
Before I take off, gotta drop off—my manifesto (whoa!)
Breaking way past the threshold (whoa!)
Gotta live it in my flesh tho (whoa!)
Put my word to the test so, let’s go

Chorus
