lyrics

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Writing fighting demons that be screaming in my mind but now I’m beaming yes I shine when I rhyme double meaning in each line so I breach the grape vine to escape the confines of the nine to five yes I strive to redefine what it means to be alive cause it seems many die many times before their deaths left on the surface never leapt into the depths never found purpose never found

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Never found self respect scared of the underground cause their buried to their neck in the debt they created true consumers who are never satiated this is not a rumor or topic to be debated check your optics to see this materialistic society if you blink you might miss it disguised as it be capitalism dressed as democracy widens the division between wealth and poverty honestly it constantly grows so I flow to slow the divide bring about unity provide hope to those denied to those denied opportunity

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need

Ruin the traps set by past generations yes I clear a path to pass the limitations lay a map on this track and start navigation through the wilderness spliff lit be my torch when I spit it’s magnetic so I rhyme to find the North not geodetic staying true going forth who knew I’d survive without a fort in sight for many fortnights penniless but I write with a sense of direction introspection on the mic as I hike towards the summit see my reflection in the peak when I speak yes the sun hits seek perfection and never dumb it down after many corrections this is what I found my own unique sound yes I stay high but keep my feet on the ground I elevate past the hate many deceived by the wealth thinking cash makes you great but you can’t by what it takes to elevate so say goodbye to the fakes and emanate what is real what is really on your mind and how do you really feel don’t hide behind the blinds draw the curtains and reveal the Tyler Durden you conceal start a fight in the club relieve some burdens and start to heal reveal the Tyler Durden you conceal start a fight in the club

I’m on the mic giving you everything that I got I’m on the mic giving you everything that you need
