Lyrics

Picking up bags
Pushing fly whips and we dripping like wax, yeah
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight
I put it on my name, my G
Things will never be the same, my G
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight

Reputation is built off repetition
You can show them the path but some people will never listen
It's not like I don't expect to be met with some pessimism
But I'm here to build with brothers who get the vision
A mortal man with the god flow, spitting gospel
A peace lover with atom bombs in my arsenal
My brushstroke is comparable to a Pablo
I pray my word's remembered in time like the apostle
The boy raps just as tight as a magnum
If skill alone sold, I would be platinum
Spazzing on every track just to manifest what I fathom
Imagine an rapping African laughing inside a phantom
I run plays and keep my eye on the goal
Frauds start hot but they die in the cold
One day you have to pay for the lies that you've told
A silver tongue helps but silence is gold

Picking up bags
Pushing fly whips and we dripping like wax, yeah
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight
I put it on my name, my G
Things will never be the same, my G
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight

The struggle ain't as real as my hustle
Lifting these gym bags is what's giving me muscle
My only trouble? I have to cop them in doubles
'cause 40 Ms of kwacha can't fit in a single duffle
To know yourself you have to step in the furnace
Testing your conviction that's the essence of learning
We took a risk and we trebled our earnings
Now the pedals that we step on are German
When you're up and coming your home town will embrace you
They say you're underrated and pray that you turn the tables
Once you make that breakthrough the same people will hate you
They were beloved brothers but so was Cain to Abel
God's favour might incite the madness
They'll treat you like you have no right to have it
A favour owed? Well I'm the type to cash it
'cause it's a cold world and there's a price for blankets

Picking up bags
Pushing fly whips and we dripping like wax, yeah
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight
I put it on my name, my G
Things will never be the same, my G
Big dreams, about to take flight
Grind all day, do the same thing tonight
