    [Intro]
    Yeah
    I wanna share some shit with y'all
    All truth, all truth

    [Verse 1]
    Like I'm standing inside a Tabernacle
    I promised not to lie in not one of these verses
    I started out as a battle rapper
    All I knew was Maxells, Adats, Dats and gats
    My name is Ryan Daniel Montgomery
    Recovering alcoholic, I grew up on 9 Mile
    I'm not a gangster, drug dealer or thug nigga
    Just an Mc who made a name with his rhyme style
    Sometime around '95 I found my calling
    And that all coincides with the time that I found my darling
    Now later on in the story I tell you her significance
    But now let's talk about me, specifically
    Three brothers and one sister see
    My daddy taught me consistency
    with his fucking patterns
    Hallelujah I'm the son of a addict
    My addiction was music
    All I would do is go to the studio and The Shelter
    And listen to Redman and Heltah Skeltah

    [Interlude 1]
    Aye y'all remember that one joint
    from the Heltah Skeltah album called
    Sean Price be like, "I'm not sure any... "
    yeah that was my shit. I used to bump that shit all day
    By this time I knew I wanted to be an artist
    I didn't want to be anything else
    You know, but my mom had plans for me
    she wanted me to go to school, so you know

    [Verse 2]
    To make mom's happy
    I took some general courses in college
    Took the bus until I got hella bored with that
    Because the bus stop I had to walk to
    Was right across from the first studio I ever recorded at
    Now I would have to assume that
    It was either meant for me to be rapping
    Or meant for me to be laughing at God's
    Geographical humor
    As soon as I stepped foot in the open-mic
    it was like a reunion
    I was a shoe-in
    I met Kino there too
    And he asked me to manage me
    And that was back in like, let me see
    '97, my girl was pregnant
    Hurdles was prevalent
    And nigga therapeutic just for me to breathe into my mic
    Started learning why the lord
    put certain people in my life
    And the way he started blessing me, uh
    I guess before my inner-demons got the best of me
    Like sneezing was my vice
    Needless to say that December 29th
    was the day I became a believer in fate

    [Interlude 2]
    Okay now it's December 28th
    my day has gone great
    Kino booked me a show under contract
    to do that night. I got a call from my girl's people
    saying she's in labor in the hospital right now
    9th floor. I get on the elevator
    Elevator stops on the 5th floor, elevator opens up
    my uncle's standing there crying
    Now I'm caught off guard, I'm like, what the fuck?

    [Verse 3]
    My uncle standing there like "Ryan, they that way"
    I walk out, I see my momma
    and that entire side of my family
    Looking like there's some kind of drama happenin'
    I said "what happened"
    They like "Granny's been in a bad accident
    and it ain't looking good"
    I'm like "man, what? "
    I'm having a baby four floors up
    Before I froze up
    I'm trying to figure out why the Lord chose us
    Or maybe chose me
    To ride in this emotionally roller coaster
    My momma said "the baby here yet? "
    I said "maybe"
    She said "maybe? Baby, go see"
    I walk away feeling like a good father
    the same time as a terrible son
    Get to my girl she 5 centimetres dilated so I waited
    She got to get to 'bout nine 'til it's that time
    And meanwhile I'm more popular
    in this hospital than the doctors
    Nurses watching, whispering like
    "that's the one right there
    Who got a lady in labor 9 and another lady dying on 5"

    [Interlude 3]
    By this time I don't even fuckin' remember
    that I got a show. Somebody had to remind me
    The doors was already open at the venue
    I got emotions runnin' every which way
    All the nurses and stuff is like
    "We'll keep you posted about the baby
    we'll keep you posted about your granny. "
    I didn't like seeing my mama like that
    so I had to get out of there

    [Verse 4]
    Yeah, I hit the stage at 11: 50, killed it
    I got off at about midnight
    With about six types of different emotions
    floatin' around inside me
    Hopeless, tryna find me
    Hopin' in time God'll guide me
    In the future, just as I was about to leave out
    I saw Kino talkin' to Marshall and then he introduced us
    We talked about collaboratin'
    and how chasin' this rap thing is aggravatin'
    But I'll get back, I got the family waitin'
    I get to skatin'
    As soon as I get to the hospital
    they tell me that my granny didn't make it
    She just died, I'm feelin' helpless, it hurt me
    On the flip side, my little boy is healthy in the nursery
    I picked him up, looked in his eyes
    for the first time and just cried
    Ain't no denyin' this is the power of God
    I said, "I love you, Granny" and looked to the sky
    Like even though he just got here, goodbye

    [Outro]
    This is how the story goes
    Powerful day
    Powerful day
    Most significant day in my life
    I mean aside from meetin' my man Marshall
    my son bein' born and my granny dying on the same day
    My grandma didn't live anywhere near that hospital
    I learned a lot this day. I learned that the universe
    has this way of balancing itself out
    For me to lose such a beautiful soul in my granny
    and gain such a beautiful soul with my first born son
    little Royce, it showed me that God is real. God is real
    And you know what they say
    God giveth, God taketh away
