about

This EP didn't take long to make, but due to the hard work I had put in all those years before, it was easier and barely took much effort.

Track Name: TO BE
Roaring on the pad with my panther pride, in a world where they'd rather see me lobotomized. My tinted skin keeps me cooler than the other guys. Open but showing no emotions; a nigga focused on this grammy drive., no time to swerve. Barely eating now, but those deserts are just what I deserve.
Suffered the curve in high school, but now I'm the boomerang. foolish to assume im just another member of the herd, who knows how to talk. im chasing for the fruit while all the other bats hang. i started off losing: that's failure and family gone, battle scarred, mind impaired, picking up and carrying on. Pedalin on the concrete, without ruffling petals. born a wad of clay, now it's wood tough: thats gepetto. took a nigga a while to flow smooth like a meddow, but to earn my honor these words must make my medal. a fiend for the light, you can't fracture my sight. achieving what I believe, got faith, EVEN WHEN IM BLIND. Will i ever see the podium, ill have to work and see. I find elysium and choir hums in the man I am to be.
(Pre-Chorus)
It's all about a matter of time, it finally makes sense since i reazoned out my rhyme. took a chance to see the other side of my insanity, to understand that everything i am is want I wanna be.
(Chorus)
All I want to be
(tOOK A CHANCE TO SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF MY INSANITY}
All i want to be
( IM GOING WITH MY FLOW; I DONT KNOW HOW ITS SUPPOSED TO BE)
All i want to be
(BUT I DO KNOW, THAT ITS)
All I want to be
(BUT I DO KNOW THAT ITS)

oN THE launching pad: t-minus my time,
in a world where they'd rather see me die than fly.
No pot to piss in Im working for my position cause the only mission for my life is to touch the sky. (huh) Before the day i die ID LIKE TO THANK KANYE WEST FOR THE KID HE INSPIRED. HELPED ME SEE MY FIRE THAT I COULDNT SEE MYSELF. WHEN I NEEDED HELP, HIS BARS HAD ME FREER THAN ANY CELL. molded the confidence of a quiet kid with spectacles. helped me realize that I have to become a spectacle. Countless setbacks, but theres always success in failure. Success from silence: a feeling so incomparable. this aint DC COMICS, but I promise a DEATHSTROKE. living LUX: chilling like LUTHOR before my final croak.
Take or leave what you cant perceive thats not up to me. all I know everything i am is what i wanna be
(Pre-Chorus)

(Hook)
UNINHIBITED BUT WITH ETIQUETTE. I THOUGHT THE POINT OF THIS WAS TO PROVE OUR EXCELLENCE. ELOQUENCE: ELEVATING OUR VOICES, CHOICES WE MAKE ITS THE GRIND FOR THE SHINE BEFORE THAT WAKE.
full burial for indecision and contemplation. Way I see it, nobody says IM PRETTY SURE I MADE IT!!
all in for it all, nigga, no talent abated. bitches put me on stall, stupidly I had waited. Now I'm chasing after angels
"I'm a Black Dove, salutations!"
took me a while to finally wake up, now i pour my cereal and script out my world captivation
(CAPTIVATION)
STARTED FROM THE PAVEMENT BUT IVE YET TO BE CEMENTED
TOLD MYSELF ILL MAKE IT NOW ITS TIME TO PROVE I MEANT IT
ON THE SPACE JAM DUNK,: I KNOW MY DREAM CAN TAKE THE STRETCH. HEART NAKED, BUT I NEVER FORGET TO ADDRESS IT.
GIVEN THAT IM FOLLOWING THE FLASHING LIGHT, I BUST MY ASS TO PUT THROUGH THE TEST LKE ITS GAME 7
SEVERED MY TIES TO ANYTHING HOLDING ME DOWN, NOW IM FIENDING TO SEE THE GALAXY. COUNT ON ME TO ACHIEVE WHAT MY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DREAMING. ITS ALL PART OF BELIEVING IN THE MAN THAT I AM TO BE
(Pre-Chorus)
(hook)

Pennin for life like Id die to see the spotlight
IN A WORLD WHERE MY PEOPLE AIN T SEEN WITH EQUAL EYES.
THATS WHY WE WORK HARDER THAT ALL, NOT JUST FOR A PRIZE
THE VALUE OF DEDICATION NEVER HAS A PRICE.
HALL OF FAME-ing for more than my name, for everything that ive lost, theres more i can gain. IM GOING AERIAL TILL THAT BURIAL; KILL ME TO STOP! FUNNY HOW YOU START FROM THE BOTTOM TO GET TO THE TOP FUNNY HOW EVERYTIME I TALKED SOMEONE CALLED ME AN ASSHOLE. ITS ONLY FITTING THAT I BECOME THE SHIT. BUT AT LEAST I TALKED, SO MANY ARE FULL OF IT,; SOME OF YALL NEED ENIMAS. AS LONG AS YOU BITE, YOU BETTER BARK. EVEN IF ITS UP THE WRONG TREE YOURE WORKING TOWARDS A GOAL, THATS A START. SO MANY YEARS OF FEELING AIMLESS, NOW IM ALMOST AT THE BULLEYE. THIS TYPE OF LIBERATION MAKES ME WONDER WHY PREVIOUSLY, I NEVER TRIED. SEEN THREE CASKETS, FINALLY TO REALIZE THAT CHASING AFTER A DREAM ISNT A FAILURE IF YOU WENT FOR THE PRIZE. i VENT TO SOLVE THE EQUATION OF WHY FATHER DIDNT SEE THAT OPPORTUNITYS WHAT YOU MAKE IT; PPOCK YOUR HEAD UP ADN BREATHE. I DREAM TO EXCEED AND BUST MY ASS TO ACHIEVE EVERYTHING THAT WASNT SEEN OR REACHED BEFORE ME. SO I KNOW WHO ITS ALL ON. FUCK THE OPPOSITION: NOBODY CAN TELL ME NO!! i BELONG WITH THE LIONS, I'VE WORKED FOR MY POSITION A NIGGA READY TO THE SEE THE SERENGETTI ON TO THE NEXT MISSION. PAD AS MY TRAMPOLIN, I REACH FOR THE STARS PRAYING TO JOIN THE SCENE I'M MAKING A REALITY FOR EVERYTHING THAT IVE SNORED IN, BUT PACING WHAT IM CHASING: ITS NOT JUST FOR ADORATION. ITS MORE IMPORTANT THAT I SUCCEED FOR FAMILY TREES. DON'T WAIT AND SEE,
FOR WHAT YOU WANT: BE ALL YOU NEED TO BE!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been thinking of a way so I can let go,
All I got is a blunt an a lighter tho.
