This isn't no griot but a mere portion of a semi-important life 
Far from a complaint, but a mere look at the present showin you the changes that I made 
The proverbial lemonade that I made 
I made my mistakes, you see life's lemons often times come in a abundance, 
In conjunction with the pressure that we're under 
Underrated some would say, hated, and some say it's the things I say or how I say em. 
And I admit, in this race I tend to struggle to relate in words 
It's like I'm an alien who alienates by the herd, so as far as being heard 
I guess I gotta wait, deprived by the station's eye 
Wale, more times than not, am not for whom the air waves 
Thank God for the free thinkers, for you keep me in mind, 
In this state of mind that I'm in, for you keep me in the race with the baton that yall give 
And they hype beat, street wear, Versace and Vuitton that I'm in 
And really don't matter unless yall comin with 
No days off, may we rip the face of the whole game off, 
I'm gon say it to yall, I'm gonna put my faith in yall when I don't understand me 
They say I'm runnin hip-hop but I'd rather unify with yall then stampede 
And lastly for everybody who doubted I can't live without you, please 
Continue to inspire the fire that is my re-dedication to greatness yall 
Paint a picture to A.D. to freestyles to famous songs we out 'chere 
Unforgettable gestures, unmeasurable effort, to pleasure the masses with impeccable work ethic 
Let's get it, I go hard, no days off 

Paint on my face, layin back rollin the J 
Feelin like these rap niggas aint as real as they say 
That's why I keep my friends limited, Keep them hoes interested 
Resented by the game like I'm Pete Rose in this bitch 
Ain't nothin stoppin us, tell you what the problem is 
I'm on top of my game but these niggas won't acknowledge it 
So a nigga hungry as a plastic hippopotamus 
So stoppers better take it in the blood like a phlebotomist 

[Skit]

Paint on my face, layin back rollin the J 
Feelin like these rap niggas aint as real as they say 
That's why I keep my friends limited, Keep them hoes interested 
Resented by the game like I'm Pete Rose in this bitch 
Ain't nothin stoppin us, tell you what the problem is 
I'm on top of my game but these niggas won't acknowledge it 
So a nigga hungry as a plastic hippopotamus 
So stoppers better take it in the blood like a phlebotomist 

I walk around understandin the politics 
Wish you niggas father understood where the condom was 
'06 came, had all kind of buzz, and Isaiah say one day your time will come 
Then '09 came, them bad record sales, the silver-linin couldn't find him up on any shelf 
I'm in the mirror like "this a product of my skills?" and I fear that my fans say I failed 
It's just my fate, lemme chill, nah flip, my shit was submarine like, under ship 
Look at what I'm up against, scrutiny, criticism, everybody judgin off a single I ain't even pick 
Now my eyes Chinese, keep the lau in, now I'm takin these pills and I aint even sick 
Ice and Rain, Letter, Center of Attention, I wanted them on my debut, but they aint wanna listen 
You know I love my team, but they couldn't see my vision, 
Interscope is my fam, so I ain't tryn make no issue 
I'm just tryin to paint that picture, When I'm rhyming up in this booth 
Imma try to rhyme and get through, but I'm documentin the truth 
Men lie. Women lie. Numbers won't forsaken, the only album flop is the album niggas hate so 
A.D. two, oh no way, let's do this and God willin' niggas gonna triple up the munnies 
Triple up the munnies, wisdom is improvin, if no one's there to listen guess I'll put it in the music 
Triple up the munnies, wisdom is improvin, I'm headin to Vienna since yall niggas ain't doin shit
