Zilla's Birthday track


Truly yours,the same kid with the crossed eyes
Same metro but,we never crossed lines
I tossed mine cos it really wasn't working
The way I was expecting so its back to networking
Diddy bop or jerking
-I was told u will reap the benefits if u put your work in
-Few years ago they weren't checking for me,
Well-I was busy with my college degree
Not the only rapper with an MSc,I don't front
Like am better than the rest,but u can guess from the jump
The dues been paid,red carpets been laid
All I gotta do is cash and walk on the stage
With every ounce of energy within
Every inch of skin resonates as I verbally begin
The pledge,to spit the truth,nothing but the truth
Guilty b4 innocence,trapped in the booth
The pain gets numb when I rap it improves
My immunity,the purity is liable to spoofs
Huge mockery of bugging me
Not so much,jus trying to get the top you see?!
I guess not so its back to the cliche
Money,hoes,ice- say it twice- "touche"
Ice those money, might need it for a rainy day
Pure satisfaction when d bills get paid
Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion
"Reminisce over you",can't believe dat we just begun
Days go by- life on the fast lane
Stay so high- puff on the hash plane
This is the last train of thought to my mind state
J Fox is the captain,this is 9-8
Get the line straight
Put my city on d map like cartography
Illustrate with verbal photography
