lyrics

It's time for y'all to take notes, cause Jay is not the scapegoat
That you can put the blame on, who is else is the same boat?
I'm always putting work in, props to Juliano
You know I shut these shows down like Sopranos
I thought the Forbes 500 was an ear catcher
Buzz so good it'd make you listen like peer pressure
But it never got the recognition it deserves
Driving a brand new car and then you hit the curb
Everything happens for a reason right?
That's why god hasn't given me an easy life
I guess I have a bigger purpose, I know my time is comin
A lot of people tell me I'm the dopest guy in Moncton
Well, where's the fans, where's the money, where's the fame at?
For 4 years straight I've been rocking the same hat
I'm a hip hop fiend, always staying high as hell
Will I make it in this music game? only time will tell

I question my future and everywhere I'm headed
I try to let it go and just forget it
Only time will tell
Will I have an impact that stays intact?
Or maybe I should quit rap, I'm thinking
Only time will tell

So the clock strikes 10 and the show starts
So lyrically gifted you would think I was inspired by Mozart
I got some loyal fans, all they plan to do is help
Stick beside me while I manage not to lose myself
I just want one shot at this, repping my metropolis
Fairy tales do not exist so working hard is common sense
Where do I see myself in 10 years?
Either making a difference or on my way to heaven cause the ends near
People tend to change when see they see you doing better
Money and fame will make em wanna be with you forever
I always wondered if this music is my destiny
The key to my success, I could use it like a recipe
Never doubt the kid, I could take this so far
People respect me cause I'm the realest and I go hard
Only time will tell, if I'll make it out of here
Standing all alone in a puddle of a thousand tears

I question my future and everywhere I'm headed
I try to let it go and just forget it
Only time will tell
Will I have an impact that stays intact?
Or maybe I should quit rap, I'm thinking
Only time will tell
