Why the desperate need for an applause? I'll wait Is she the GOAT here? Well, it's safe to assume Everybody panic when I step in the room And I can feel that shit a mile off Niggas is rapping about pieces People are really dying, is that what's needed? I can't save your soul you need Jesus Tell me please Why the desperate need to be remembered? Everybody knowing what you've done How far you've come I'm guilty, it's a little self-centred People change when it's about personal gain I stay in my lane 'cause I'm not done with the checks Give me what I deserve and not speak on the rest Don't know what has occurred, then do not aimlessly guess It's a gift and a curse to this pretty and blessed
(Blessed, blessed, blessed) So blessed Used to plug that £20 mic into the back of the Mac (Mac, Mac, Mac) Just so you can hear my voice Always knew this was my calling but I'm here by choice And things change Shit been dark for a minute I'm (Blessed) Delirious, it's hard to function on this winners time Mouths to feed, my nigga
Scripts to read, my nigga Double life, living overseas, my nigga, shit Left home for it Jasmine just had a daughter, man, she's so gorgeous Told me life is giving life and I'm so for it Maybe one day Nothing's more important and family's where the love stays Dealing with society's pressures is one thing Let alone all of the problems that funds bring But no stress Understand it comes with the process I follow my intuition 'cause it knows best I'm so used to getting it on my own, yes I know my people wanna see me win I'll never let you down Standing ovation for the one who's wearing the crown I got royalty In my blood, I was born great Don't allow anyone to undermine your fate
You've awoken the fearless High beams and lucid dreams Don't be so obsessed with me You think you know what's best for me Take my energy, come to find there's nothing left of me Went from being small time to becoming my own entity Went from being broke as fuck and trying to find identity To buying the finer things and isolating memories What is it I'm meant to be?
I think I need a standing ovation Over 10 years in the game, I been patient God has always told me to be myself Let go and free yourself Tell the truth, I shamed Satan Know I gotta pave the way for the next generation That's coming up under me and I love to see it Thought I was bluffing, didn't see it it coming Hold up, think this is cold? You ain't see nothing The glow up, all the discussing But I don't let it distract me Load the pen up, cock it back and get to bussin' Standing up to who? I make the scene lie down Get it how I live it, how it bees right now I got another 20 in the shit, I'm cemented Take over businesses, tell the kids start investing We built the pyramids, can't you see what we are blessed with?
From the hieroglyphics to the hood lyricist The priests the Imams The Good Books you live with The Rumi quotes The elder sisters The tribal mantras The jazz players Holistic doctors Spiritual teachers Doers and the Dulas The protectors and the rulers The kids of the future The immortal soldiers And the fearless protest-protesters The motivation speakers And the honest black leaders The divine healers The everyday low-paid believers The overachievers in the shadow of the gate keepers Came down to teach us
(Blessed, blessed, blessed) Blessed, blessed, blessed) (Blessed, blessed, blessed) All these trophy's in the crib, got 'em sitting nice (Blessed, blessed, blessed) After all the hard work that we put inside Everybody claim to be boss but I'm a different kind Hate it or love it, we rise above it
