lyrics

You know, it all comes down to who you wanna be
It's your choice

Yo, it all started as a high school trend
Hip hop was more influencing than high school friends
I used to skip class, go home and write a couple songs
I was in the wrong, but I couldn't find where I belong
People dissed me, but now lots of girls can't resist me
I spit game and throw around my words like a frisbee
I never party in the club getting tipsy
I've got better things to do please forgive me
I get ahead by working harder than most
I'm proud to be a known rapper on a part of my coast
It took years of blood, sweat and tears
I love all my peers, I'm facing my fears
So it's clear that I'm here and I won't stop
I got more control than a robot, I know that my flows hot
Watch me knock out songs I'm beat boxin
I know I'm on a roll so we're gonna keep rockin
There's too many names to name who helped me
And I plan to do same what's the game without me?
Choose your path wisely, it's in your hands
No man should slip bro so get with the program
Get them dollars, sign yourself up with SOCAN
Don't play the hunnies, find that true love and romance
I know this isn't what you're used to hearing
I'm on mission giving hip hop a new appearance

You choose who you wanna be
You could work and grow tall like the roots in a tree
It doesn't matter that you fall, keep giving it your all, you just gotta
Get up and go get it, get up and go get it

You can't spend your days sleeping the rent’s due soon
But you party every weekend cause your friends do too
Hold up, and take to a minute to listen to what I'm giving you
Lead by example, it's possible, I'm living proof
Uh, I take my life by storm
And I don't need to light that bong to write my songs
I feel gifted, I shift my wrist into position
Then let my pen do the work, mimicking my vision
2am at night sitting in my kitchen
Haven't been to bed I just wanna feel the rhythm
My lyricism will leave em for dead
Cause all I think about is music even when I go to sleep in my bed
I'm a master in the works kid, I rap until it's perfect
You know I got in me from the passion in my verses
Your mind is a dark place while searching for the sun
But you're the one determining the person you become

You choose who you wanna be
You could work and grow tall like the roots in a tree
It doesn't matter that you fall, keep giving it your all, you just gotta
Get up and go get it, get up and go get it

Yeah
I wanna dedicate this song to anyone that's overcome a struggle, an addiction, or the person they were trying to become
Much love
