Watch out cuz here I come
Going up the ladder, climbing up the rungs
Top is where I'm going, seeing where I'm from
Making Hip Hop like Hip Hop has made Ton
(I have to make it)

(Verse 1)
Since age 5 thought Hip Hop was the best
Recorded "Gangsta's Paradise" on my mom's cassette
Grew up watching crazy videos by Busta and Flipmode
Then Bone Thugs taught me about the "Crossroads"
That Tupac and Biggie soon passed
Remember hearing B.I.G. died before I left to class
I couldn't believe, my mood was solemn
They taught me about the "Changes" cuz "Mo Money Mo Problems"
Listened to DMX while watching Jordan and the Bulls play
With my cousins Jonathon and Danny
Truly fell in love when I heard Luda's Word Of Mouf
When my cousin Andy brought it to my house
Since then been Rolling Out with Hip Hop
And I'll keep rolling with it 'till the day that I drop

(Verse 2)
Inspiration made me think it was something I wanna do
Started rapping with my friends at school
Having friendly battles and ciphering at the lunch table
Wanted to make music if I was able
Had dreams of being signed to a label
And having videos all over the cable
Started writing songs with my cousins
Everything I wrote I was loving
Freestyling with Sonic taught me how to flow
Rapping in his car everywhere we would go
Love Hip Hop more than anything I know
Into everything I put my heart and soul
Recorded my first track with dreams that I would blow
In September 2008 in Kaleh's studio
The Bureau of Beats
Where we come with correct technique
To produce that heat
All day on repeat
My friends became my biggest fans
As I made songs to make my stand
My mother supports it
My father ignores it
Sister finds it whack and boring
But me, I adore it
One of the greatest sensations in life
Honestly the only thing that feels right

(Verse 3)
So that's 10 years loving the music and culture
9 years learning and seeing it soar like a vulture
8 years freestyling
7 years writing
6 years dreaming of making a CD
5 years finding a style that's me
4 years planning out what I seek
3 years working on my technique
2 years laying down the tracks with my mind in my words
This year I'm coming out so that I can be heard
"All musician are subconsciously mathematicians." - Thelonious Monk
So this all adds up to my mission
Exponentially it has the potential to last a life time
Cuz I continue to do this as I continue to rhyme
This is real, this is my history
So why I do this is no longer a mystery
Know my story is sincere
So when Hip Hop happens here, it stays here like Vegas
Like after class it rings true when I say this
Hip Hop I can never get enough of it
Cuz I do this cuz I love it
