[Rapper Big Pooh]
Came to a fork in the road
I decided to go left
This is gravel uncharted for me
Until I'm on my last breath
I'ma push on, momma yellin, "Be strong!"
Gotta provide her with fruits spoils of my loot through this industry
Searchin for a way out, becoming my own enemy
The inner me is way out of alignment
I wasn't raised in this type of climate, I'm okay bein an outcast
What these women tryin to out-ass and niggaz tryin to outcash each other
My goal is simply outlast, but I lost too many brothers
Now I gotta question if I want it everyday I'm wakin up!!
I arrive to the point where I don't give a FUCK!!
Many gon' critisize when some can truly do!!
I'm honored to be a part of the few! - It's Rapper

[Chorus: Blakksoul]
(Turn on the lights)
Get this chip up off of my shoulders
Try to weigh me down, never count me out
This game is far from over
(Open your eyes)
Keep it moving on the same train
New motivation but the same lane
They'll never crutch me with the same cane
(Open your eyes)

[Rapper Big Pooh]
Money runnin low, confidence lower
I thought it got easy as I got older
A man with pride I don't need a shoulder
To lean on, as I'm listenin to Phenom
Seeming like I'm eons away from ever shining
Gettin my just due, forever grinding
I'm not exactly comfortable where I am
And when I finally get there I'd probably want more
I never been content with just trying to score
Filling up the stat sheet, run 'em like a track meet
When cats meet, the humble man wins
I guarantee you that you gonna need him in the end
So now you understand the cold demeanor when you see me!!
I'm a king upon a chess board, yes Lord!!!
Niggaz is TRYIN to do their best, Lord, to test me!!
But that bullshit don't impress me!! - It's RAPPER!
