This song begins with smooth chorus explaining how the artist does not care what the haters say, and he’s just thankful for the life he has been given. He then goes through the verses with rhyming and switching flows. Sentimental and contemplative rap works great for background music in tv shows, movies, and independent videography. Also works well with commercials and radio. This song is a fantastic alternative for Kendrick Lamar, and any smooth, but articulate hip hop track.

The folks here on my street, I could give a hoot bout what they think. The ones here on my block, Gon ahead and let them talk that talk. For everything I took for granted, Thank God that here I am still standing. Nothing I have was handed, Now I’m high off life and I’m never landing.
Shopping sprees for new Nikes, forget about those days we had nothing to eat. Everybody tryna git a pic wit da boy, not long ago they said you ain’t gon git past the door. They were right about that, no one wanted to sign me, run into them A&R’s I ask who you with ya gotta remind me. It’s just business baby not taking this personally, but maybe being rejected why I’m doing this purposefully. Out to lift these kids hopes sorta like Hercules, and to those who need help I try to answer with certainly. Cut from the same cloth just went a different direction, yet to me this new life is in a different dimension. Several haters on my block, I’m just tryna ease the tension. Told em I’m only human just plan to retire early without a pension. If I can give you a single lesson, it’s don’t ever let someone else make you doubt a single blessin.
You try to be happy for people who don’t want your kindness. Work to multiply the same folks who want to divide ya. That’s just the American dream working at its finest. Not to mention bad chicks bump n grindin for a night of fine dining. This madness, all because those round you rather you average, unless it’s them jealous of whoever on camera. Don’t like having to see another name on the mantle. Try to make em realize time to dethrone me they had ample. The verse here ya heard first was only a sample. Shown the road to riches like only a map will. I used to pray for mansion til that Ish finally happened. From an empty pantry, to memories that need hankies. I remember them days with no heat just had blankies. From rim shots on the clock to every single one banking. And when ya body’s aching can’t stop sweating or shaking. Remember if you want something different YOU the one who gon have to change it.
