Blame it on the hip hop ft. Jered Sanders

written by: J. Sorrentino, J. Marlowe, J. Sanders  

produced by: Theory Hazit 

mixed by: Braille 

mastered by: Bulwark Mastering

cuts: Dj Aslan

 

 

came in the 80s but born in the 70’s 

raised on radio rakim and  eric B 

chuck d and BDP that was my therapy 

blasting in my headphones to hear what they telling me  

but apparently currently all i’ll ever see 

is running from these bullies in the hood trying to get at me

late nights scaring me gun shots a melody 

came up dead last kind of like the letter z

and all my neighbors got a felony

and all my teachers do is yell at me

but I don’t know where in hell i’d be 

if Jesus didn’t step in and kick the sin out of me

i found a recipe and remedy  

so rest in peace to every little piece of the older me  

so when it’s over and ya bury me  

leave the mic in my hand so i died as an emcee 

 

if my hat’s to the left you can blame it on the hip hop 

if I got a way that I step you can blame it on the hip hop

and if I keep my kicks fresh you can blame it on the hip hop 

if my life is so blessed you can blame it on the hip hop 

if its still about lyrics blame it on the hip hop 

if your raps I don’t feel it blame it on the hip hop 

and if i still wanna kill it blame it on the hip hop 

Father Son and the Spirit they be reigning in my hip hop

 

goldin child:

born in the 80s raised in the 90s 

grew up on that Wu-tang slang and straight grimy 

find me in the cipher spitting freestyles 

emcees all around like a swarm of killer bees 

protect your neck bars are sharp like killer teeth 

claim you got game son I got skill 

sure you pop steel when you cop that deal 

you is not real and my crew does not feel 

these studio thugs cause the block is too real 

the truth was revealed when the blood got spilled 

aggression pressing wrong buttons stop fronting 

top and cutting to the bone home sharpen rhymes 

microphone firearms stay out of harms way 

lyrical bullets watch what God say when I pull it 

no ducking just busting goldin tongue flow smooth on percussion 

rip through your tissue hit you direct in your heart muscle 

in the midst of the struggle you say uncle 

you’ve overpowered by a circumstance 

we advance forward never quit be here to the end of it 

remember this Ak when I spit like this you can blame it on the hip hop 

 

chorus

 

jered sanders:

 

I been around it bro,

Way before the lobes knew of the rocks or Rolls,

Betty Crocker though, use it for pasta bowls,

The pros spewing to lock and load,

Cock the four, flu game, get a shot for those,

Just another slight, cocky male, 

rocking over beat box battles and cafeteria acapelles,

You could prolly tell back when I was prolly 12, 

I was a number one chief rocka, popping my lapel,

Head knocking over Rock The Bells, 

switching accents, to track suits, Applejack and a blocky cell,

Scarface, Hugh Heffy with a few models, 

some Esco, Big Poppa, and a lotta L,

Only Mac I knew, coming wit gun powder,

And spitting a lot of babble outta one tower,

But I ain’t worried about a God MC, 

cause the God, JC got the globe and He runs ours,

plus your theology’s probably worse than ya hygiene 

why me im a crime fiend

yet you saved me you provide for my dreams  

man its crazy you provide for my peace

Im amazed where I came from since Im free 

 

If your living for the King gone clap it up

and honestly I don’t know if I got fans 

cause Christ is the way and he teach me how to walk fam 

banging beats ever since i had a walkman

headphones bumping that sound of the God-man

the one who’s light shines bright in the darkness 

freeing those souls from the system that were lost in 

controlled by the hands of the powers that be 

and i refuse to let the beast start devouring me 

yeah I’m not just a barcode in your numbering scheme 

keep my hands to the skies eyes fixed on Elohim 

the blood of Christ be reside in me 

its like a beacon of light that stays guiding me 

remove the scales from my eyes so that I can see 

that his voice is the truth I can hear it when he speaks..

change the diaper and put her in the car seat 

tell dayanna malachi leia jay

all i gotta say is daddy loves your more every day 

me and K got that rap dad swag 

mini van rap sound checking w/ a diaper bag 

cats be like “aint you almost 40 now?”

how you still gonna call yourself the goldin child 

with a wife a 3 bedroom house and 3 shorties now

but you know I’m still nice w/ that freestyle 

meanwhile still learning how to be a dad 

baby in my arms banging beats on them drum pads

 

when they ask me how Im living say “yeah im good”

and its only cause he risen k? “yeah Im good”

in case I forgot to mention well “yeah Im good” 

yeah you know I’m good I’m good 

might be going through my stress but “yeah Im good”

every day I’m so blessed what “yeah Im good”

so i aint worried about the rest cause “yeah Im good” 

you know I’m good.. I’m good 

 

 

kj52:

my day starts at 6am when I clear the phelgm 

I help my wife out the door cause she’s late again 

feet hit the floor grab the coffee pour it in 

out  the door to the car then I hop on in  

I put the baby in the car seat help him in  

free styling w/ these old beats take a pen 

writing down the ideas when I walk on in 

“ah its great to see you..” how you doing man 

drop him off hit the church then im rolling in 

I read a little pray a little talk to God again 

im in the middle of a issue and i’m stressing it 

but its really kind of little so I rest in Him 

i found a calm right there to my restlessness 

plus I finally really know who my blessing is 

and understand now just what he gives  

it’s just another day in the life that i live

kj52

now you never get old if the flow stay’s  timeless 

this is the utmost now for his highness

he is the plus though  to all of my minus  

hope I touch souls like a brush and a stylus 

so when I bust flows I hope that rhyme is  

like a punch to the nose burns a hole in yo sinus  

and then it goes to take the crust out ya eyelids 

and it hits like a tidal wave to crush all your islands 

plus they rush into violence

so me and GC we like paul into silas 

been gone a whole lot of time and 

but I aint even old just got a whole lot of mileage

cue up the violins while I survey the landscape 

i eint even worried what ya man say

man makes plans but man makes the plans break

thats why most y’all aint even worth my hand shake

i had to learn to make the plans wait

then crack it open like a clam bake

so even if I’m older than my fanbase 

all of this is God aint nothing of it man made  

 

oh you got a big car nah man not really

oh your a big star nah man not really

you do a lot of drugs nah man not really 

bet ya pack a lot of guns nah man not really 

 

b. cooper: 

 

I asked him what you want a verse about he said he wanted murder 

massacre the instrumental till your name gets heard of 

give them that original I aint talking wurthers 

synonymous w/ the hip hop like in and out w/ burger 

follow suit thought my career would go further 

next up a whole generation of turner 

what you drive what your bank account worth bruh 

where you live do you pop our the burners 

no sir I’m a 9-5 worker 

spent my life searching just trying to find purpose 

give em bars like they trying to find service 

and inside every verse tell them life’s worth it 

does that mean that I’m perfect 

not close but the difference is that I’m working 

backpack rap I aint talking hershel 

this is heart and soul follow the flow to the church is 

 

goldin child

man hold it this microphone’s a pulpit now 

gold is back competition start folding 

what’s in me greater than what’s in you 

w/ these razor sharp rhymes that will cut your crew 

convictions the reason your uncomfortable 

the honest truth is I aint gonna front for you 

I’m coming through backed up w/ a hundred troops 

this old school veteran w/ some new recruits 

like the camouflage squad scuffed timberland boots 

my God’s more powerful than the guns you shoot 

yeah I been in your projects and seen the proof 

these angels of war camped on the roof 

and I’m telling yall cats dont take it as a joke 

cause right about now man I’m half past broke 

for those that think I’m in the booth flapping my jaws 

best believe its the truth that I’m rapping for yall..

kj52:

I’m on a lonely walk trying to be tony hawk

skating past the little spot where my homie fought 

ask my parents for the sneaks that my homie got 

but we barely speak at all I aint home a lot 

cuz every hour every week I just rode the block 

little skate rat got a dollar in my only sock 

skate back to store for a soda pop

I’m in the  mall food court with my friends a lot  

sneaking out at night sometimes we getting caught

speeding on my bike like up and down the block  

I call this girl I like I think she kind of hot 

But will she call me back that’s my only thought 

Wrong place wrong time almost got me shot 

By a cop rolling by at the dealer shop

But I skate away I’m never getting caught 

Watch it fade to grey and this I thought 

 

I was on my grind grind grind grind grind 

you can find me all the time time time time time 

 

goldin child: 

cats went from skate or die to skateboarding aint a crime 

even though sometimes crime and skateboard coincide 

i was on that 180 heel flip to a backside tail slide 

better stick the landing right 

around that time the scene went from punk rock to hip hop 

started spitting rhymes in the skate shop 

felt like i was in the midst of a renaissance

when culture collide and give birth to a new time 

back then i was blind chasing girls 

had a split from the world industry 

flip mentalities got real spit fire for the king 

the original vision Christ was never plan b 

life changed when a switch stance kick flip to rail slide 

broken growth plate shattered tail bone 

put my board away started picking up a microphone 

since that day you could say i was on my… 

 

kj52:

I used to kick flip to grind now I kick flip the rhyme 

Got  mind on my money and the money on my mind 

But my money is a dime and that aint helping me to shine 

contemplating crime just to help me get by 

But I can’t see the time and I can’t seem to find 

a little peace of mind and I can’t seem to climb 

out the route and I doubt that I’ll ever see a sign 

that will help me get out of this mess now of mine

 but I’m lost until the cross came in to shine

in came divine light to invade the blind

in came in the time that my life hit rewind 

and it’s only cause Christ that I came in the vine 

 came into find a whole change in design  

he gave is mine and he came to find 

me when I was lost and I can’t wait to fly  

him in the sky but until that time..

one shot two shot three shot four 

five shot six shot seven shot pour 

 face down on the floor 

said this was it but you back now for more 

 

hate what you do to the them 

hate how you took my friends and turned them into hooligans 

hate you ruined them nothing i could do for them 

they called you many names but that was just a psuedonym

nobody clued them in they was never listening 

red eyes pale skin body shake twitching then   

dead eye pale face sweaty skin glistening 

fell straight headlong to the spell you put on them

another sip another hit under the grip of sin 

take another trip drift away and come back again  

you ride the wave to the grave till it’s crashing in 

life is a game plus a gift but don’t cash it in 

the ropes around your neck man I see it tightening 

chains around your leg man i see you fighting it 

you’re like the walking dead every single night and then

I pray you find some life in Him now before the light is dim 

 

 

goldin child: 

Yeah I hate what you do to me 

imitation of the real thing always fooling me 

honestly it seems like you're constantly pursuing me 

claimed to possess beauty but it's costume jewelry 

started with a look with a touch with a taste 

you always had the same name just with a different face

feels like I can't leave your sites and find escape

like you hide and wait late nights when I'm wide awake 

swear that you're sweet leave me with a bitter taste 

full of shame and disgrace returning to a fallen state 

emptiness sets in and it's more than I can take 

to the point I feel sick and my body starts to shake 

my flesh starts controlling me feel it all over me 

like its digging in its claws refusing to let go of me 

Christ you're the hope in me remove this debauchery

pornography by any other name is still pornography

 

one click two click three clicks four 

five click six click 7 clicks more 

keep this a secret make sure to lock the door 

feel so defeated im addicted to this porn

kj52:

now I’m going to the barber shop rolling through a parking lot

Try to find a parking spot hopping out I park and walk

hoody on my head got me looking kind of hard to spot 

when I’m walking down the block the lady wanna call the cops 

rolling past these dudes all they do is push the  rock 

the packs they move got them twisted like the hardest knot 

but for the moment I need  a trim right up off the top 

edge up on the back and a fade up on the sides I got 

I’m rolling past the cats they wanna call the shots 

I know they keep a lil something tucked up in they sock 

I’m working at the church right up at the farthest block 

I seen the worst of the worst but really I aint gonna stop 

The thought occurs to me need a cut start to walk 

I see this dude I say what up stand then I sort of nod 

he was acting kind of rude but really I just blew it off 

got no time for attitude im finally all up in the spot  

 

I said what up nothing How you living cousin

hey yo Whats good up in the spot why don’t you tell something 

He said “im just steady cutting while they steady fronting”

another day another dollar while im steady hustling 

 

see im popping in walking in sitting down

just an average hood spot bad side of town 

I’m only whiteboy in spot so I  don’t make a sound 

one guy on the xbox the other dude is talking loud 

he makes a move and then he  starts to clown 

the one dude takes it to the hoop and then he breaks him down 

I’m staring at these dudes waiting for it to settle down

looking at these grooves up in the roof these people hang around then..

 

goldichild: 

 

tell your moms we drop bombs on these prima donnas 

aint no rock stars don’t wanna hear you scream and holler 

hip hop scholars me and K gone bring it proper 

you wack cats popping collars steady chasing dollars 

don’t even bother spitting one line we not impressed 

aint nothing fresh just another carcass speaking death 

no life inside your rhymes your reciting eulogies

call me the coroner embalming emcees  fluidly 

 

 

izzy serious: 

 

I’m from a place where the preachers rarely walk the streets 

Everybody knows who did the robbery but never speak

The police, stay serving and protecting 

their benefactors while we blessing God for being our protection 

You can find Christ where the lepers and the lames at

Homeless, shootin’ dice, sippin’ on a bottle of warm ‘Yak

I tell’em heaven’s ya home black, you should know that

then spit a dope rap, then I’m out with a cold dap

I’m baring my cross while yours is for the shine

Mine comes with a crown of thorns and pierced open side

Check the scriptures kid the science is divine

I believe evolution is God’s intelligent design 

So I create and spitfire like a circus act

Some clowns got record deals and don’t get close to that

While I rip scriptures for forgiveness in the barber shop

Where it’s five for the shape up 20 to touch the top

 

 

Juk:

I’m a hip-hop biographer Battling the Apocrypha

Follow the wood-worker In Boston, that’s the Car(a)penter(a)

I was bred and read up on Biggie and 2pac and them

Studied the greats Met up with grace

And-produced this document

Race used to bother me Social issues and lobbying

But now I’m dead-to-my-opinion

 On-the-Rock like Sean Connery

In a sick economy  Vivid with pornography

I pivot like Paul And-offer-up-Jesus, risen, bodily 

We the children of pottery Created with knowledge 

You could never go to college to retrieve Cause it’s Godly 

Used to smoke Ports, man Like Natalie 

Course then God got at me  Awesome He honored me 

Pardoned me Now I’m a re Al new creature To feature

No respect needed You can give that to Aretha

I gave up my rights so I could live life for Jesus

My Savior The righteous King So just believe, ya’ll

Who am I ? im just the spikes of the thorn bush 

That the soldiers picked up now as if to push

Into a crown as they headed out just in a rush  

To push it down up on his skull as they went to shove

Him in the crowd as I went down just to cut 

The top of his head as the blood now began to gush 

hit him on the side hit him in the gut 

With they fists and a spike now plus a club

And as they hit him w/ the fisticuffs 

the look up in his eyes well it was only love 

looking to the side as they went to pick him up

As he cried in a voice to the sky above 

Father forgive them now just for what they done 

But almost like that was just not enough 

They took a cross then they made him pick it up 

As the crowd screaming  out now for  his blood 

 

what if well you was standing in the spot like 

what if them crown of thorns they could talk then 

what if man you could see him on the cross then 

what would they say what would they say  

 

goldin child: 

 

iron ore forged by the hands of man 

the same hands of man that handed the son of man 

over to the sanhedrin im kept in the satchel of the centurion 

soldier a tool of execution for the romans 

pierced to the flesh of any man who opposes 

imperialism and the rulers who uphold it 

i helped kill and innocent man who spoke w/ boldness 

Jesus pilate found no cause to hold him 

condemned in secret crucified in the open 

and on that cross it was my job to hold him 

klank driven through his wrist and the grain of a wooden plank 

klank and again and again klank 

into the wooden beams i sank 

then of his blood i drank 

tasted redemption and i couldn’t bear the weight..

so lets rewind then 

back when he was walking w/ blind men 

back when he was falling behind man 

back never knowing a love worth finding  

he was never calling to find Him

he was just going to find sin 

he was so hopeless but right then 

he was changed in a moment found the true friend 

a King his God He took his sin

he was told get in the boat so he climbed in

now a fisher of men now w/ his pen 

to give you the picture of Him when he rhymes man 

he’s been forgiven more than times ten 

and for Him he's been living with all his time spent 

with a purpose he’s been given until his life ends  

he found life when he was lifeless now his life’s His  

a man stood in a pulpit told him what life gives 

he bowed his knee in the bedroom now his life lives 

he was born again now because of that life gift 

thats the truth it changed what his life meant  

now he’s sent he’s got a story to tell 

a man on the radio had a story as well 

He said I’d rather scare you into heaven then lull you to hell

his eyes has seen the glory w/ his soul it is well 

so thank you Dr. Rogers tho you never got to meet  

a 15 year old kid who was lost in the street

his life was changed by the words that you’d speak 

that 15 year old kid that kid was me

its like I got a fountain of youth its like I got a fountain of truth 

so right when I’m down in the booth

I got these lines in my mouth 

like the rap was a crack in my tooth

see i was just down for a few 

down for the count but I’m back on the move 

and I don’t know what to do 

but the boy came up like a bouncing balloon

I aint even down w/ ya crew

I aint even down w/ ya  rules

I am just down w/ the truth 

I am just down w/ the proof 

that my Lord ran out of the tomb boom 

stick a bounce in the groove 

like I’m running up and down on the moon

plus I got a mountain to move 

so chew on that like a mouth full of food 

 

but I’m too old to be feeling this young 

so why quit now when it just begun 

I pray my whole life for this moment 

you know you know you know it

 

man aint you feeling allright?

you know you know you know you know it

plus its still about Christ 

you know you know you know you know it

you just now living your life 

you know you know you know you know it

well tell them what it just be like 

you know you know you know you know it

 

 

22 years in the game 22 years in the game

I am not fearing a thing 

i am not hearing you mane’ 

i am not fearing to change 

they think I’m weird in brain 

they think I’m weird in my lane 

they think I’m weird and Im strange 

but Im never blend in like a tear in the rain 

13 w/ a necklace 

trying to get the cream and a beam and a jeep and a lexus 

and I was so reckless 

running down a dream but never ever seem to posses this 

then I heard a message 

about a God who can turn it all around in direction 

and then I learned the lesson 

now every day the only thing that I count is a blessing

 

but I’m too old to be feeling this young 

so why quit now when it just begun 

I pray my whole life for this moment 

you know you know you know it

 

man aint you feeling allright?

you know you know you know you know it

plus its still about Christ 

you know you know you know you know it

you just now living your life 

you know you know you know you know it

well tell them what it just be like 

you know you know you know you know it

 

God good devil bad 

all i had was a pen and pad 

all i got is the breath I have 

take this life and I give it back

dang that sounds like a jewish gambino 

but nobody would gamble on the kid just like Reno 

got my shot but fell backwards like Neo  

yeah yeah we know thats just what you had to face 

I was on the weak end you can call it saturdays 

get it weak end yeah yeah anyways

kept on speaking w/ any tracks that I had to blaze 

w/out a database I’m going that a ways 

but I knew my Jesus not fame is what I had to chase

glad to say that everyday he always had the way 

and aint a thing changed except my age since back in the day  

 

it be like that 

I aint stressing when it be like that 

its a blessing when it be like that  

I was knocked down but I’ll be right back 

 

i went from using tapes there just to run the track

to a world of soundcloud playlist and mumble rap 

i aint saying I hate this man I just state the fact 

you can stay the same adapt or just fade to black 

so all my days I remain just a humble cat 

I bust thru the lines like a psychopathic running back

still got the hat low cross all up on my back

still let these cats know who he is and I aint stopping that  

stop and laugh i seen ya come and go

wrote the first rap stuck at home with a busted nose 

i let words flash kind of like a busted hose 

drop a boulder on the crowd crush a show

man I love it bro I got the greatest job

still one love one God that I’m busting on

you need to ketchup man you got the mustard sauce   

he remains the same even when they gone claim I’m gone

my group is on the rise plus we fin to pop 

plus we had a demo at the time that we fin to shop 

trying to spit on any mic we get to rock 

from the clubs all the way to the ghetto spot 

in the projects where they would just flip the rock

where they used to hold the bricks kind of like a cinder block

so in between the boos that we get a lot

we be making moves no one is fin to stop 

we rolling on ya crew plus come off the top

two white dudes leaving ya crew all up in a shock 

almost lost my life one night just getting shot 

one night when I was rhyming all up in the spot 

but the only way I’m ever ever gonna stop 

is when my heart quits right there plus the casket drops

 

worldwide international 

intellect dialect from the spiritual

the original born again miracle 

its worldwide international 

 

before we surrounded you like longitude and latitude 

K was spitting that mathematical and radical 

now a day 52 travels international 

gold on a local with a vocal that will capture you 

feel like I’m back from a 20 year sabbatical 

cats ignore the truth but swear they kept it factual 

line upon line like Im autobiographical 

pen by the masses saying it’s supernatural 

man listen I aint talking that witchcraft 

no premantion when goldinchild spits that 

raw lyricism when the sprit of pen raps 

arm’s out stretched steady hugging the block man 

we out for the lost army of nameless faces 

we was on stages pushing the rock of ages 

me and K stay moving the crowd

SOI lifestyle never putting the mic down..

He won’t fail me he won’t fail me no 

he won’t fail I know I know he won’t fail me no 

 

 

something to nothing 

from nothing to something 

i aint just bluffing or fronting man

hit me like all of sudden 

I was just grinding and hustling

hoping that something was coming 

Im going just wild and Im bugging man

I’m trusting ya covenant 

2 jobs that I’m juggling 

coping and hoping that something was bubbling 

but I started w/ nothing man 

all of my life I was struggling fumbling 

but i saw that you’s coming in 

now I got the upper hand 

and you know that Im loving it 

ever since I found that you had just the better plan 

 

He won’t fail me he won’t fail me no 

he won’t fail I know I know he won’t fail me no 

 

Zealot Gang all Glory to God I started a movement

He won’t fail to me, he never fails like a A student 

Put Him first I’m on the fast track

And the Devil never gets the last laugh 

God Taught Me, God’s got me

And He’s got my back like backpack 

Told Him I trusted Him and gave Him my future 

Left that in His hand made a plan then we blew up

People may hate me and want me to screw up

But I’m wit the Zealots you know how we do it

God will never leave my side, makin moves now we movin

Kill religion, find relationship, yuh, aye, and Live the Revolution 

 

 

shake off the dust 

I’m a shake off the dust 

 

I could not take it no mo’

i was just down on on the flo'

thats when walked thru my door

grabbing a hold of my soul 

I know you was making me whole 

this world has taken it’s toll

but you making me grow 

plus you just paving the road 

im taking it slow and I’ll say it some mo’ 

then you changed up the goal 

just like I changed up the flow

that is the reason I go 

that is the reason I roll 

from the deep of the depths of my soul I say..

mixed by: Jonny Grande 

 

All i had was Jesus and the family 

 

 

they said I had the wrong religion

then they said I made the wrong decision 

I came this far still I”m on a mission 

still I stand behind the bars kind of like I gone to prison 

I’m got a vision now listen my savior gone an risen 

my God is still up on the throne when you wanna diss him 

the old me is dead and gone I aint gonna miss him 

my goal had to subtract just like its long division  

they still think I’m kind of odd  

part time rapper I’m a full time man of God 

you see the rock that that I’m standing on 

all you ever see is the green like it’s camouflage

I got a team and we standing strong 

one hand to you the other hand to God 

been through it all I aint planned to fall 

plus he guides my every move like the dude in avatar 

 

All i had was Jesus and the family 

y’all aint understand me I aint had a plan b 

 

they say that God is in the details 

I say that God has taken 3 nails

paid it all up on the cross when he prevailed 

when the devil had locked now but he failed 

what you see here I’m just an eye witness 

so I’m running back to him like the line of scrimmage 

you can’t tell me now now that I’m finished 

but you miss the bars kind of like a blind gymnast 

blind gymnast man you can’t see

i rock it tighter than your pants be 

so if im silent and I can’t speak  

God be speaking all up in my ears like a hands free

you can slam me ban me 

all i  ever got is this never had a plan b

I aint got no limit to his plans b 

all I ever had now was Jesus and the family

 

(Datin)

 

all i got in this life is my squad and the mic 

that I use to speak into the darkness when I call on the light 

I got the Holy Spirit my Heavenly Father and Christ 

that I serve with all of my might and I follow despite 

the persecution is promised they say his callings are plight 

but in my past I wasn’t scared of a brawl or a fight 

why would that change now that God has been right 

there beside me fighting my battles demons fall in the sight of my King 

he stands taller than godzilla stands so I’m safe I feel like ann in King Kong’s gorilla hand 

who lied to satan and told him that there is still a chance 

it is written only the army of God will advance 

a plan B would just be man made 

so I’m banking on plan A you know i can’t sway 

in the face of death I’ll worship with my hands raised 

I will give it all for Jesus and my family

Hold on you got this don’t throw it away
learn to forgive but don’t forget even when it feels like the worst hold on you got this don’t throw it away
make more memories than regrets if nothing else just live and learn

what if I was talking to the younger me
way back when i was 3 running up and down the street
not a thing i’ll ever need no shoes up my feet
sitting in the puddle causing trouble for my family
i would say get ready things are about to change
I would say hold steady even if you run away
i would say nobody knows what you about to face
but i would say oh buddy hold for a better day
you got them teachers all up on your case
watching it just slip away feeling like it never changed
now you feeling like you so deranged
staring out the window where nobody seems to knows ya pain help now is on it’s way God know what you face
wipe all the tears away let go of all the hate
its all about to change know there’s a better way
roll w/ the punches you can hold for a better day

Hold on you got this don’t throw it away
learn to forgive but don’t forget even when it feels like the worst hold on you got this don’t throw it away
make more memories than regrets if nothing else just live and learn What if I was taking to the younger me
13 with the shirt clean and some dungarees
Acid wash ripped jeans stripe like a bumblebee
Running from the bullies in the hood trying to come at me Punching up the wall in the hall while I'm mumbling
Shoved in the stall then i fall down stumbling
Crawl to wall then I hauled out hustling
Head home where it's all fall down crumbling
Wondering Wondering any one loving me?
Yes there is for the kid feeling ug a lee
Zits on your face & ya kicks quite struggling
Helps on its way its gone change quite suddenly
screaming at the top of your lungs till its thundering
words pound through ya head ya angers now bubbling

ran out the door down the street to your cousin nem’ found out everything you need he had it covered man..

what if i was talking to the younger me
Right around 23 young emcee hung-a-ry
Head full of dreams got a heart full of ministry
Head full of steam got some art for the industry
can’t find a part just start in my own space
Too white too broke no talent no name
thats what they said I went my own way
messing with my head I aint listen to what they gone say
but I need to be slow to speak
take time to breathe it keeps me in perfect Peace
and enjoy the all the Mystery
learn to shut up dude learn how to listen please
thru the darkest of ya days
he promises to stay
you gone make it through ok
and this is what i say..
Hold on you got this don’t throw it away
learn to forgive but don’t forget even when it feels like the worst hold on you got this don’t throw it away
make more memories than regrets if nothing else just live and learn

here comes the get down get down the get down get down
here comes the get down get down get down to get down

the one i serve is the most high
pull up to the curb in my 05
got the rims on 10’s when i roll by
no benz but i got 10 friends in an old ride walking in w/ a limp and a closed eye
fanny pack and I’m strapped for the whole night and the spots all packed and its so live

from the front to the back and its show time

gone hate play the wall for the whole night want beef get a burger and a cold fry
and a steak and shake and a whole pie you salty i see that your throat dry

2 coffees I dance like an old guy
can’t stop cause I’m down for the whole nine like rocky I punch till i go down
its my party and this is how it goes out

here comes the get down get down why you wanna sit down sit down we come to get down get down junk that we bump so lit now

this the part where you mom gone dance

one time i was up in the sams club
then a fan ran up put his hands up
said he moved from atlanta to tampa whipped out a camera gave me a pamper can you sign this quick for my grandma can i get a little pic for the fam a

my nana is a fan of your grammar
he’s doing duck lips while he’s holding the camera your song is my number one jammer
its like I’m your number one fan a
this is really so random
can we be friends like ross and chandler
you gifted kind of like santa
your up there w/ guy who sings panda
DC talk my favorite band a
wait what did you say? man what?

sometimes i feel like i just dont fit in
and i feel like they just don’t get it
and i feel like I’m just so different
when i rap for the cats who clap w/ no rhythm 1/2 pay attention 1/2 didn’t listen

some wanna laugh at the fact I’m a christian so when i state that I rap for living
some wanna hate for the sake of religion
but my savior is risen

back on a mission back out the prison mouth is a motor rap is a piston
never gone fall for ya wack little system but now I’m asking for wisdom

just to deal w/ all the cats that will listen

still on the path that path of the vision back in the lab and Im back in the kitchen

this is the best day ever you are the best thing ever

now I’m awake got the coffee poured
But I’m Running late going out the door
but I”m on my way heading out on tour
when the coffee fell straight on the floor
You ever felt this way before
When your face is sore and your brain is raw all you wanna do is complain some more cause every highway lane feels like a war
it’s a struggle just to praise the Lord
but you on a race and you blazing forward your faith really needs to grow some more
So when the road gets hard just remain assured

this is the best day ever
you are the best thing ever
its all because of you you you you you its all because of you

If I could write an essay on the best day
had to be the one where I get changed
had to be the one when I get saved
From all the ways that I was and I been made Brand new and your love made a quick change Had me heading down a road but I switched lanes Now every where I go now it’s so plain

took everything I done and its thrown away turned all around like a segway
seen through it all like an xray
ever since I found just the best way

every single day just a Blessed day

its like the feeling that you get on your first date
or just a hug when your going through your worst pain its like your laughing with your friends till your sides ache laying on your bed while your both staying up late
its what you saying to your crush back in 1st grade
or finding love when you need it in the worst way
its like an answer to your prayer on your worst day
so from the bottom of my soul this is what i say

i think of many times i made a mess of me
when its obvious you always had the recipe
for the best of me and now i guess i be
on my knees and I’m begging now for less of me when i see that everything is falling thru

thats when i know that i need so much more of you more peace more love and just more truth
less me more of ya now in all I do
got a whole lot of baggage that I’m sorting thru that I’m dragging all around like its portable

it’s dragging me down I think it’s horrible feeling lost but I’m found when i call to you

oh lord take me down to the river and wash my soul oh lord take me down to the river and make me whole

more of you and less of me
i need more of you
I need more of you and less of me give me more of you

more of you and really so much less of me
I died to myself said rest in peace
thats when i heard you say that you can rest in me and i think about all things that your blessed to see like my wife and my kids and my family

the life that i live I’m so glad I’m free
and when the rains falls you are the canopy that means wether i got it all or a can of peas and when i hit the wall you said look to me
I said every time i fall i wish you took the lead but I’m learning slowly who i ought to be cause f your love is the ocean wash over me

I’m not the lame broken down child
w/ one thing on his mind and his brain
I’m not the same I’m not the guy
who was living to die for the fame
my life is changed i found the way
and the truth and life when he came
and I got to say ill never return to man I was
back in the day
Im on my way Im on my way till
he calls me away
im not ashamed I got an army about to invade
my God is great forever and ever and ever he reigns and all i can say whatever whenever whatever I face

what you think i’m giving up I aint giving up (nah bruh) what you think I had enough I aint had enough (nah bruh) what you think I’m finished up I aint finished up (nah bruh) they be just like (nah bruh) we be just like (nah bruh)

If you ain't bout that action get up out my face
I keep coming right back just like a holiday
They looking up at me like I'm out of bounds
I'm rolling with the one I know gone hold me down The ball in my court and everybody know it

Now all my soldiers bout to sound off
So come and try to block, we be like nah bruh eh brah eh brah eh brah (we be like nah brah)

a life filled with pain
running the streets while Im watching the train
wishing I’m free but I’m locked in the game
looking for peace but I’m doomed to the flame
i was speaking your name
spoken in vain I was going insane
But I broke out the chain the moment you came
My loss is my gain
I'm back from the dead hear me I'm back from the dead You hearing the facts that I give my passion to live
Is from all that he did
and I'm not the kid I ran and I hid
Thats the man that I been
But he's buried and dead never returning to live
never see him again..

let me tell you the story of how I met up w/ the glorious
I hope you were recording this got me stretched out like accordions get down to the core of us like apples mac books on a tour bus gremlins the water we found make more of us
crazy how my life changed creation that’s right brained
God of the whole universe came down to earth and took my pain my pain Hallelujah Hallelujah this a new life
walked away from death there’s no way that I can lose right?

can i go in this way plus I’m on the tour
im kj I rhyme and plus do it for the Lord
he said not tonight and went and slammed up the door I’m like oh no everything’s a no go
standing in the rain my cell phone like no no scratching my brain like Im stuck out my own show

want to complain till a fan was like oh yo
and then he rolled up began to walk
said I been listening to you since you DC talk can you sign all the cds that i got
toby mac your the best man you really rock!

if i had stayed at that flower shop
I could’ve been a manager but now
what you think about that what you think about that?
oh what am I to do .. probably should’ve went right back to school just like momma said oh just like momma said
I should’ve never quit my day job

Sometimes I wonder what I'm rapping for
first I’m eminem now I'm mackelmore
They box you up they wanna stick you in a categore I'm never stuck I dodge the bull like a matador stank eye walking in the door
Rap game Larry bird but I’m in another sport
I break ankles and I shatter boards
And build a ladder to the God that I’m rapping for But they never ever seem to get it tho
Some say I'm Toby Mac others thought I'm Mineo Some think I'm only wack others think I'm criminal stuck up in the middle like rap game little bro standing here feeling like a jerk
Holding a pose with a fan till my hands hurt
cause her man can never make the cam work
While they holding up another rappers fan shirt

if i was still a traffic cop
could be working homicide but now
what you think about that what you think about that? I should’ve never quit my day job

now straight off people think I’m straight odd cause i praise God and rapping is my day job I'm sitting on plane waiting just to take off Dude trying to guess what I do but he way off First I'm a dj now I'm just a drummer

Says kj fifty two thats a funny number
I been doing this like 20 summers
I took the diss but I reminisce kind of wonder
What if I never quit my day job?
just pulled a 9 to 5 trying to get my cake off
would the ones that you saved would’ve strayed off id rather struggle in the will of God then lay off

hate on well you can stay that I'm Straight soft life is a game and I’m gunning for the playoffs so I’m glad to say I never quit my day job
and I’ll never be ashamed or try to play God

w/ a hot girl so cold what
Got me froze up
God knew what to do when he made you sho nuff

and he chose us
and I love it all from head down to the toes up

no question no guessing
i like the way you walk and your dressing your a gift girl you’re a blessing
all wrapped up in my best friend

they see me shining and Im popping
but I came from the darkness
they don’t know what I did to get up out of it well you should know about it

so I”m a go to war never should’ve let us in
just a veteran w/ medicine like excederin
I see your life is all dead in sin
so i drop a light just for the world like it’s edison let me in you looking cock eyed

ya two face Screw face head flopped lop side
I am an emcee w/ a pop side
so all these years you think I did it for ya Top five
nah I aint care who the hot guy
Came w/ a hot line like way before pac died
I’m over here while ya walk by
While I'm on point just like the tooth up in a shark bite I push a rhyme like a fast car
And Ran thru my bars like an alcoholic track star
So when u bragging all on who you are
Been there done that a T-shirt and a scar

they see me shining and Im popping
but I came from the darkness
they don’t know what I did to get up out of it well you should know about it
know what I’m trying to accomplish
but all they ever did was doubt it
but God got me through the nonsense
you should know about it

imagine me letting the comments move me
imagine me letting the pressure from the game consume me when i been on blocks where they all would shoot me
yeah they got more bloods than a scary movie
little so and so from the suburbs
don’t try and rate what I’m doing w/ these nouns and verbs just giving you my life story over these words
recollecting all the things that could’ve put me in the dirt yeah i got plaques on plaques with racks on racks
but i would throw it all away for a convo w/ my Dad
and tell him i forgive him for the times that he ran
i finally understand what it takes to be a man
i just tell it like it is and let God do the rest
don’t compare me to your favorite rapper he is not a threat
i would’ve quit a long time ago if this was for a check
I’m just trying to give life before i see my death .. it’s minor

you are the passenger see me just when I'm blasting it
I’m a hold the mic like a baby in a bassinet
I’m a hold the light kind of high I’m never passing it
now because of Christ Im resurrected like Im lazaurus
I got them passionate rhymes for your mind kind of hazardous see a man came from nazareth that they labeled average

he was born w/ a star in the sky just like an asterisk
he took the chains from you and I boom then he shattered it so sin is a labyrinth no hopes of getting out of it
so man can you fathom it it sounds quite elaborate
but theres a rope and a ladder to pull you out of it
anyplace I can cope its no matter just how bad it get
we all shattered battered broken down and sick
tattered heads ratted walk around like we out it
yet my Lord is coming back just to grab his kids
and when he returns to the earth he’ll establish it
