lyrics

i came enthusiastic in the rap shit thats a fact
I'm still enthusiastic mother fuckers watch ya back
cuz in this game of rap, the snakes are steady watching
waiting for the chance to drop a diss, second that you stop to piss
saying that you lost your shit, hoping you about to quit
mother fucker, never count me out I'm too legit
and fickle fans if you can find em, hardly pay a nickel
thinking they entitled to your album, shoulda charged em triple
but fans is mostly rappers see you as the competition
savage like a raptor, see your shine like its a sharpened sickle
thats why the sales crippled everybody wants to rap
no one only wanna listen - this is what I envision:
people buying albums, digital and physical
coming out to shows and showing love, it's so untypical
literally killing off the silly shit that's visible
and fill the gap with rappers who can write some shit thats printable

this is the place where the fan shoots the messenger
hands up to the sky and slowly empty out the register
this is a dark place -im in it til im finished
came to win it - this is it - i feel the pressure getting heavier

tell somebody that you rap and watch em start to laugh
either that or ask you if you rich or signed to major labels
you could tell em fables, catch me on your local channel
ask you "why you rocking flannel, why you stuck on basic cable"?
nothings good enough, nobodies looking hood enough
cuz you know if you rap, you better own a gat and caught a body
never seen as art your words are taken literal
no room for metaphors or works of fiction - over critical
i think its pitiful that modern rappers do the same
acting like a spectator- thought you was inside the game
know id be lying if I claimed I didn't want the fame
but im a jugernaut ill never stop whether it comes or not
cuz I'm master of the music first and foremost
but for most - this prostitution call me wournos
cuz i be killing anyone who try to buy me
you can try me, be the first to die - get severed at your torsos

this is the place where the fan shoots the messenger
hands up to the sky and slowly empty out the register
this is a dark place -im in it til im finished
came to win it - this is it - i feel the pressure getting heavier
