Lyrics

[Verse 1]

Never pray for the win, I pray to be my best self
Crack the game and scramble plans, I’m never walking on egg shells
Grind hard and create wealth as long as we invest well
Keep our word and build together, we spread sheets when we excel
Life’s full of surprises, threats and debts of all sizes
Devils wearing disguises, but angels opened my eyelids
I looked deep in that void, and saw the truth with my boys
I’m a show you what Muzi showed me, that life’s to be enjoyed
Got to live it up for the years that we grafted, see we went abroad and came back with a masters
That’s something real, don’t take that for granted, some niggas just go back with a blanket
We pushed through the stress and fears, learned through a lens that was less than clear
Wasn’t a long time, but the best of years, these bonds that were built over sweat and tears
That’s real, and you know this, stay above the water like lotus
Third eye open with an ultralight beam you might get scorched by the focus
Focused on bringing life to my people, giving praise and we fighting the evil
Follow the light and take arms where it leads you, don’t be idle this a fight where we need you

[Chorus]
I’ve been lifted, forgiven, and learned to count my blessings
I’ve been flexing, finessing, and all my friends are legends
Haters stressing, forget them. They hate to see me winning
Hey man listen, I’m tripping. All these angels I’ve been given?
I’ve been lifted, forgiven, and learned to count my blessings
I’ve been flexing, finessing, and all my friends are legends
Haters stressing, forget them. They hate to see me winning
Hey man listen, I’m tripping. All these angels I’ve been given?
Man, I’m blessed

[Verse 2]

Shout out to my brother Maya, that’s the man I stay solid with
Always sitting and politicking but more than just economists
I owe a lot to these homies, Kevsta, Mwizzy and Troney
Showed me life might have no limit if you shoot your shot like Kobe
Admire strength in Kali, Patty P got the sauce
Yung Cutter, go get that butter, the Liberian game is yours
Can’t forget about Mac and Willz, helped me to adapt my skills
The first niggas in MW that made me believe rap is real
The whole rap game looking like it’s a cult, I know you have more somewhere in your vault
Don’t waste your time trying to sound like someone else ‘cause you’ll never be satisfied with the results
Push it to the limit, never fall into a gimic, you’re original, don’t give into the pressure of the business
Put faith in your vision when you’re making a decision, and I promise you’ll last past the fads that we witness
Get into a pocket that’ll lead you to the cash
Flip a thousand twenty times that’s a billi in the bag
All my niggas I couldn’t fit in the verse I still got y’all in my prayers
Celebrations all come with cake and that cake comes in layers

(Chorus)


[Verse 3]

You see my voice is fine wine, won’t let you boys define mine
Don’t want no Shady partners here, coz I’m not Royce da 5’9”
Though I still go for mine and I open minds with my dopest rhymes and I tow the line
For everybody trying to make it past the coldest times, coz to elevate your soul is my sole assignment
The animalism of Capitalism has driven some niggas to cannibalism
Happy to pillage and massacre innocents as long as the killing is making a killing
African children we have to be vigilant, tackle this mission with passion and diligence
Tasked to envision and plan an efficient and ethical system for stacking the Benjamins
Got to flip the statistics, everybody’s running in the Victim Olympics
Get realistic, makes no sense to expect some respect from oppressive resistance
There’s millions here that need healing, those odds might give you a bad feeling
But don’t stop as long as you keep breathing, go hard and shatter the glass ceiling
Level spelled backwards is level, it’s all balance, levels come with new devils, it’s all malice
Devils just test your mettle, it’s all challenge depending on the cloth you’re cut from, all fabric
When you’re full of light it reflects, never been the type to be stressed
Haters got a right to vexed, I arrive with the cheques and I rightfully flex
