My life's a joke, you pass and I’ll toke
Got no money, yeah we broke, but long as it’s burnin’ we got hope
I’ll drive, you roll, james brown - he got soul
Got no ends, got no dough, but we gets down on the overflow

Don’t gotta profile and post, I don’t floss when I’m walkin’
Don’t brag or boast, I let my skills do the talkin’
Won’t say I’m ballin’ though you callin’ me a player
Cuz’ I get so much love in my city I’m like the mayor
I’m paper stackin’, I’m pickin’ up the slackin’
I make it happen while you rap cats are nappin’
You see I’m laughin’ cuz’ my life is like a joke
I’m gonna make this dream happen all I need is some hope
Ya see, back in the day good times were all I knew
It was, late night parties sayin’ screw the curfew
But as I grew and time flew I felt reality strike
against the odds I’m like Nas all I need is one mic
hot pickin', politickin', itchin’ just to get rich n’
put Columbus on the map but you haters keep bitchin’
that I ain't give you no love
when you don’t deserve it, gotta make your own buzz cuz

My life's a joke, you pass and I’ll toke
Got no money, yeah we broke, but long as it’s burnin’ we got hope
I’ll drive, you roll, james brown - he got soul
Got no ends, got no dough, but we gets down on the overflow


It seems like some girls only want that green paper
They hear you aint rich they like peace see ya later
Always playin’ games social climbin’ with names
They lookin’ at the chain around the next persons frame
Yo can you explain cuz; I’m goin’ insane
Instead of gold diggin’ I’d be diggin’ ya brain
Livin’ for the fame got you in the fast lane
But you’re to drunk to drive so the story will remain
It’s all the same they say it’s written in the stars
Ya lookin’ to Hollywood, I’m lookin’ past Mars
No phat cars but baby we can still roll
Another L and just blaze and find our souls in the haze
It’s just a phase in these days I’m tryin’ to live my life proper
Getting’ high with some help from my friends like Joe Cocker
Stashed it in my locker, but now it’s public knowledge
We share the overflow, higher learnin’ like college

My life's a joke, you pass and I’ll toke
Got no money, yeah we broke, but long as it’s burnin’ we got hope
I’ll drive, you roll, james brown - he got soul
Got no ends, got no dough, but we gets down on the overflow
