Everything come back around full circle.
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful
Everybody gotta cry once in a while.
But how long will it take before you smile
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon light the city up as if the sun had the night shift.
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead to soon
Yea.
To the left of that decimal I need 7 figures to play the joint
Turn up your decibels peep how I decimate a joint.
Check out my projects like them workers that section 8 appoints.
And you’ll see how I flipped, like exclamation points.
My niggas shoot first as if they never played the point, more 2 guards.
Enough straps to fill four uhauls
More death than World War II caused around these parts
We pour the brown just to drown these thoughts
Of black corpses in county morgues, Lord, those images hauntin.
I ain’t been sleep yet, it’s 10 in the morning.
I’m sending a warning, a problem with me is like the BET hip hop awards I’m starting to see you niggas don’t want it.
I’m sick of this flauntin, from niggas I know for sho ain’t got mo dough than Cole
Trash rappers Ass backwards tryna go toe to toe
We laugh at ya, staff strapped up on top the totem pole.
To blast at ya.
Bass masters, look how they tote a pole.
Gotta know the ropes and the protocol.
Or they gon for sho blow your clothes half off like a promo code.
Made a lil tune called folding clothes, and a nigga still ain’t known to fold
Under pressure, well you know what coal do
Make a diamond, they just rhymin, me I’m quoting gold
1 phone call Get you cancelled like a homophobe, In this PC culture, address me as the goat, like they call chief Keef Sosa, in my sectional like a fuckin 3 piece sofa
Im known as the chosen one.
Another dead body lay frozen that’s how it go sometimes.
When Niggas weighing coke just like the pro’s and cons.
Well I ain’t with that sleeping underground like a gopher, so I go for mines
Everything come back around full circle.
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful
Everybody gotta cry once in a while.
But how long will it take before you smile
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon light the city up as if the sun had the night shift.
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead to soon
Now I know why they call it Blue (YEAAAA)
Survival at all costs, everyday niggas get logged off.
Bodies Get hauled off.
Passing a funeral procession While holding my breath in the car I thought.
At times it be feelin the devil be winning but do that mean god lost.
Just got off the phone with my nigga he back in the kennel my dog lost.
I brought him round close to me
Before but he
Became addicted to clout and all the hoes we’d meet.
I slowly peeped, Jealousy on his breath, whenever he spoke to me.
Like on the low he feeling like in my shoes is where he sposed to be.
I tried to ignore the signs, but there in the back of my mind it felt
Like letting a nigga come sleep on your couch but he eating up all yo groceries.
My nigga repeated this quote to me, I felt it’s potency.
Said Most of these, niggas gon hang theyselfs, just give em the rope and see.
I headed that, and what got showed to me
Was screaming that, some niggas you gotta leave em back unfortunately, We seen the trap, niggas be on that demon clock resultantly
They fiend to clap, as often as the genius app misquotin me.
Meanwhile, I see that yo diamonds is glistening.
I’m Glad that you shining but need I remind you my niggas is diamond and nickeling.
Scraping up whatever coin they can find, the pettiest crime they committing it
Just to get by for a limited time, the Steepest of mountains they tryna climb.
I’m here tryna find the derivative.
You niggas don’t feel me, You see the clout
You don’t see the real me
If I was sick, you niggas wouldn’t heal me.
Therefore I’m healin myself, getting in tune with my God, slowly revealing myself, building my wealth, a nigga touch mine ima kill em myself
Everything come back around full circle.
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful
Everybody gotta cry once in a while.
But how long will it take before you smile
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon light the city up as if the sun had the night shift.
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead to soon
Now I know why they call it Blue (YEAAAA)

If anyone is interested, the beginning sample is from “Tao of Leadership” by John Heider. There is a video on YT called “TAO in Everyday Life” that includes that snippet around the 21 minute mark. Stay Blessed 🙏

Are you doin' this work to facilitate growth or to become famous?
Which is more important?
Getting or letting go?
You can do anything, anything you can do (You can do anything)
You can do anything, anything you can do (You can do anything)

Everything come back around full circle
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful?
Everybody gotta cry once in a while
But how long will it take 'fore you smile?
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon' light the city up as if the sun had the night shift
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead too soon (Bitch, I'm back out-)

Yeah
To the left of that decimal, I need seven figures to play the joint
Turn up your decibels, peep how I decimate a joint
Check out my projects like them workers that Section 8 appoints
And you'll see how I flipped, like exclamation points
My niggas shoot first as if they never played the point, more two guards
Enough straps to fill four U-Hauls
More death than World War II caused
Around these parts we pour the brown just to drown these thoughts
Of black corpses in county morgues, Lord, those images hauntin'
I ain't been sleep yet, it's ten in the mornin'
I'm sendin' a warnin', a problem with me is like the BET Hip-Hop Awards
I'm startin' to see you niggas don't want it
I'm sick of this flauntin', from niggas I know for sho' ain't got mo' dough than Cole

Or they gon' for sho blow your clothes half off like a promo code
Made a lil' tune called "Foldin Clothes," and a nigga still ain't known to fold under pressure
Well you know what Cole do, make a diamond, they just rhymin'
Me, I'm quotin' gold
One phone call get you canceled like a homophobe
In this PC culture, address me as the G.O.A.T.
Like they call Chief Keef Sosa, in my sectional like a fuckin' three piece sofa
I'm known as the chosen one
Another dead body lay frozen, that's how it go sometimes
When niggas weighin' coke and not the pro's and cons
Well I ain't with that sleepin' underground like a gopher, so I go for mines

Everything come back around full circle
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful (Yeah)

And paint the town red for my nigga found dead too soon
Now I know why they call it blue moon (Yeah)

My nigga repeated this quote to me, I felt its potency
Said, "Most of these niggas gon' hang themselves, just give 'em the rope and see"
Shit, I heeded that, and what got showed to me
Was screamin' that, some niggas you gotta leave 'em back
Unfortunately we seen the trap
Niggas be on that demon clock resultantly
They fiend to clap as often as the Genius app misquotin' me, uh
Meanwhile, I see that yo' diamonds is glistenin'
I'm glad that you shinin' but need I remind you my niggas is dimin' and nickelin'?
Scrapin' up whatever coin they can find, the pettiest crime they committin' it
Just to get by for a limited time, the steepest of mountains they tryna climb

Bitch, I'm back outside, nigga
I'm back outside
I'm back outside
Bitch, I'm back outside
Everybody mentions suicide prevention
Man, they even made a hotline
To call up when there's tension
But I got a question
What about a fuckin' homicide?
Need a number for my niggas to call
Whenever there's a urge to get triggers involved
Need a number for my niggas to call
Whenever there's a urge to get triggers involved
