Exasperated hard, tryna saturate my scars-
And Im sick of all these rappers with exaggerated bars-
I swear these gimmicks getting shine at a faster rate than stars-
And Im tryna feel a beat with a lacerated heart-
Cause, cause, well the meaning of its clear to me-
reality is blurred but Im dreaming of it clearly-
These labels wanna rape you, and these artists wanna steer from me-
Cause everything I say to you's been educated fearlessly-
Im weary of this business and cautious to persue it-
But lyrically im in this cause im nauseous when they do it-
when I know im straight fire and im better than ya mans is-
You toddlers finger painting, Im picaso on the canvas-
You Rec. execs get less respect for lowering the standards-
Pressing on my neck feel this oppression like hammer-
Pounding in my head, and I swear the beat wont go away-
I thought the sounds was dead, but now its glowing like a solar ray-
Ill tell you why im fed up, cause they flow is just so over paid-
Elitest aint a genius, see they need us to control the game-
The road is paved, I know the way, but women aint promoted here-
Unless we shakin-asses, makin-masses think we're only here-
To serve as viewing pleasure, feel the pressure from patrolin peers-
Not our appearence, but our lyrics that youve grown to fear-
But hold ya ears, dear, listen real close now-
Lady E, A Marie and K soul nowww-

Stand tall- Keep your head held high-
Stay strong- Dont ever let em see me cry-
Though the game might never be fair-
I'll be damned if I dont play it-
So keep pushing me, I will never say die-

Travel the beat with composure and presence
And soul and essence
and a goal that's a lesson
For the road to acceptance
Whether for themself or predicaments they're in,
They listen close to the message
But still won't accept us in the currents of the mainstream
Until they know for sure the blood that's in our veins' green
So they know that we'll supply whatever they demand
To profit, body to the soul, but mind is never taken ..damn.
But we shaking hands, swallowing our pride
Tryna make the friends to benefit us, following the line
That was drawn, but it's time to cross it, they wanna sign across it
But I read between it, see the meaning where they hide it, cautious
Of the hierarchy, are we tryna be the final piece
To fit into the puzzle they designing so they finally see
The picture they been waiting on? yes
But it ain't what they expect, we're the missing piece that Changes all the rest
When it's fit into the puzzle, the addition that switches
What they had figured the bigger picture would be when they Finished it
But it isn't, instead of changing to be marketable
(listen ) we're gonna change what's seen as marketable, Vision
of division of the artificial - into what's art and what's official
There's a difference, but it's hard to see the issue
When they're caught up in the gender, so focused on anatomy
They're missing what's supposed to matter, solely what the rapper speaks.

Stand tall- Keep your head held high-
Stay strong- Dont ever let em see me cry-
Though the game might never be fair-
I'll be damned if I dont play it-
So keep pushing me, I will never say die-
