If you take time to grow You will reap the seeds you sew Search within and you will find It will give you peace of mind Million dollar baby don't run nowhere Million dollar baby don't you be scared Million dollar baby watch where you go Million dollar baby go steal the show You know I tried so hard to make it They never thought I could do it All them hard times I went through it Just to put it all in the music Niggas saw I was down and out They never thought I could lift me up I'm the only one that could lift me up Still living it up I ain't lived enough I've been plotting lately Don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby I've been plotting lately don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby Make sure the lines paint the picture crystal clear So one day the rhymes make the 9 to 5 disappear It's a red carpet event when the kid premiere No wedding bell but plan to stack cake on different tiers Left to right side of him crew thick ride or die with him He reads between the lines plus he thinks outside of them My haymaker's breath takers hit them with all I got to give Promise is touch souls like Shakur and Wallace did Still playing dues breaking rules nothing to lose Nice but it ain't what you know it's what you can prove Loving this journey scenic route taken Y'all looking gassed out from all the clout chasing Up North rapper the man is the truth Tim's, Roots sweat suit and Canada Goose Who got the 204 debates after this won't be many more Black Mamba bars giving ops 8 to 24. You know I tried so hard to make it They never thought I could do it All them hard times I went through it Just to put it all in the music Niggas saw I was down and out They never thought I could lift me up I'm the only one that could lift me up Still living it up I ain't lived enough I've been plotting lately Don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby I've been plotting lately don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby I win at all cost till it turn profit You know the term prophet means he called it See my fortunes in the future flowing like a faucet My pops Charlie birthed an angel and it wasn't Farah Fawcett Losers hate when winning is the topic Winners always thinking how to chop it That's the top pick in the draft of life I seen disaster thrice and turned it into pasta life Traveling Rome a Mafi for a natural slice Italian soda in a roaster Before rapping I was buying custom sofas All from quotas made from juggling the ollas I never overstate i got out without torture that's a jewel for you Certain Hustles need the mindset as a tool to use Only motive is my mantra that's refuse to loose They see the team they us stars like a Subaru We all align then unison a Rubik's Cube. You know I tried so hard to make it They never thought I could do it All them hard times I went through it Just to put it all in the music Niggas saw I was down and out They never thought I could lift me up I'm the only one that could lift me up Still living it up I ain't lived enough I've been plotting lately Don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby I've been plotting lately don't worry I got you baby One they got their money on ya million dollar baby

I've been mastering peace did it on purpose for myself Creating a masterpiece I've been working on myself Throw him in sink or swim won't avoid mistakes Being strong only choice he could afford to make Set feelings aside for the best outcome Pick them up when I'm done cause father time I can't outrun Dudes he took off with ain't ones that he's landing with Labels tried to stamp him with growth felt like abandonment Proud of his flaws and his scars sure they left a few marks But how you manage the damage is what sets you apart Work in progress ain't saying I'm past healing But seeing sky's the limit I shattered the glass ceiling Ya boy solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from Solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from Same click till the wheels fall off who he's rolling with From where the Ls and the dubs are disproportionate We want that better life still trying to get ahead in life Recipe for success trying to get it right They tried couldn't put out that fire inside of me Irony dying breed dead poets society Story might hurt if you feel him Only reason a doubter was ever right when I believed them. Ya boy solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from Solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from Ya boy solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from Solid as a rock know these ops can't shake him Friends lost a few along the way and he made some Been years in the making How long did it take him City routing for him know how far that he came from

Y'all left the art's heart with no pulse somebody has to shock it Verses sound refurbished nigga aftermarket Raised the bar too high for these underachievers Getting fly you'd think wings come with the sneakers Got fat while we starved can't let 'em eat Taxing niggas for bars like he's selling beats Around this long this strong it don't even make sense All these clowns on you ain't get your break yet Top of the podium he ain't take his place yet Len been doing this since cassettes and tape decks Mad they can't touch him fuck'em brush'em off like dandruff head and shoulders above'em Bury them no comparison Thought he was gone naah ya boy just evolved another variant Really what else I got to show them Leave him open on the court and you know he's closing Y'all pump fakin' fronting start saying something In the game but ain't playing dawg you button crunching Pressure makes diamonds days and hours we invest Record quality clarity cut VVS Rappers been lunch really nothing left to consume Everybody real till real steps in the room Life's a movie see how it plays out for me Rap junky no intervention or rehab for me Highs don't go to his head lows don't go to his heart Just me and my dreams yea we all we got Highs don't go to his head lows don't go to his heart Just me and my dreams yea we all we got Highs don't go to his head lows don't go to his heart Just me and my dreams yea we all we got Highs don't go to his head lows don't go to his heart Just me and my dreams yea we all we got
