I'm discriminated and validated,
But I'm elevated and contemplative,
Haters agitated and gossip-innated,
It's just part of being the man.

Yea I walk down the street, see many people,
One of them happens to be Mr. Teeple,
Asking me questions and different things,
About my album and the pulling of strings

I answered his questions the best I could,
Then went home, fell asleep, feeling good,
Woke up the next day, face on the paper,
Read it briefly, said I had a caper

Feeling misunderstood and very mad,
I called the news company and made an ad,
No crimes by me the real STP,
Ya'll fake journalist are just hatin' on me,

Then I go on the web, just by myself,
And find a pic of me kissing Danielle,
No privacy, not even for me
Just being on top for the world to see.

I'm discriminated and validated,
But I'm elevated and contemplative,
Haters agitated and gossip-innated,
It's just part of being the man.

Taking pictures of me, getting my autograph
Now I'm speedily famous like Warren Sapp
Got many fans with veneration for me
Cause I'm raising up high with propensity

No infamy or antipathy, I try to be the best that I can be
Just to entertain people my job you see
I hope to be loved by mankind

Knowing that's impossible at this time
Cause I can be liked by few and hated by many
Vice versa, my fans can be aplenty
A good abundance, yea that be many

Because at this great time, Soull in prime time,
Never been sublime, but I am on my grind,
Haters try to play me like band chimes,
So I eat them up like meat with thyme,

I'm discriminated and validated,
But I'm elevated and contemplative,
Haters agitated and gossip-innated,
It's just part of being the man.
