Never thought I’d be here, momma always told me to stay clear, money and fame is smoke and mirrors but I’m not lookin in the rear view mirror. Weather I’m sittin there or up here everyone looks the same, but that doesn’t mean I have to play the same game. If I wanna be somewhere that everyone remembers my name I gotta reinvent, dedicate and attract the same. Settling for less just ain’t in my game. You wanna be wit me ya gotta carry the name.
