Self Made – Keeping It Strange Lyrics

Self Made – Keeping It Strange Lyrics

The road to glory tends to take a lot away
Carpe Diem, seize the day, I’m seizing everything
Getting it by any means, you’ll have to bury me
Before I get to where I get to say, I’m self made
The road to glory tends to take a lot away
Carpe Diem, seize the day, I’m seizing everything
Getting it by any means, you’ll have to bury me
Before I get to where I get to say, I’m self made

Fuck all these industry bitches who
‘Enough that
You don’t think that I got it then buck back
I’m from the city where we bust back
And that’s no cap
I been in the loop and you knew from the chopped and the screw
That it’s way overdue
That we get an appearance
Fuck having the rights or the clearance
You bitches will hear it
This isn’t no smoke or no mirrors
Each step I grow nearer
Forgotten about like we’re Nearest
I lost all I have, all I have is my city
“Be Somebody”, bring the pride with me
I ain’t taking shit from nobody
Bayou city what you know ’bout it
H-tine not H-town, we ain’t laying down
This a shakedown
I’d like to acknowledge, my fans and my followers
I never go back on a promise
And if we’ll be honest
It’s time I fulfill on that promise
I lost where I was
Now I’m back and I’m on it
For Pimp-C
And Mo-City Don
That’s the wave I’m on
Hand, Stick, Baton
Speak the truth like I’m Trae, I’m on one
Tell ’em on somethin’
Bam said…if you want it, go get it
Don’t think it, just live it
And now I’m seeing what he meant when he said it
If you ever doubted, you’ll regret it
We’re here, we’re heavily vetted
Been tried and been tested
I caught it in stride
Won’t crack from the pressure applied
Besides
Imply that I’ll be the greatest a live
I can see-all of the truth in your lies
I can see-all of the fake in your eyes
Who newer will you place-greater than I?
Lie down, you can die now
N-Sync triple bye now
Scott street to the heights now
West side to I-10 out
Profound, 10 toes down
If you didn’t know, now you know now
Everybody fucking doubted me
Now I’m undoubtedly making this out to be
Threats to anybody challenging
Flattening any ideas your imagining
Tragically, It isn’t happening
Not gonna lie
For a minute I lost it
Depressed and the stress made a mess of the rest
And I’ve never felt closer to death
I listen to Kells and I listen to Hop
Sin that I’m in, caused to deepen a lot
Listen to Joyner, I listen to ‘Pac
Binns said “go and give em a run for they money
I put you with Joyner and Hop at the top of the game”
Damn
I owe it to you and the fans who all stand with me here in the Land of the Lean
Hell and heaven, here I’m caught in between
Feast or famine, do you know what it means?
We the only ones, believe in the dream
No XX
No Dreamville
No Funk Volume
No U.P
My team still that F4MNATION
What it mean still
I had 3 deals
I took the last deal that was offered to me, I choose me still
The road to glory tends to take a lot away
Carpe Diem, seize the day, I’m seizing everything
Getting it by any means, you’ll have to bury me
Before I get to where I get to say, I’m self made
The road to glory tends to take a lot away
Carpe Diem, seize the day, I’m seizing everything
Getting it by any means, you’ll have to bury me
Before I get to where I get to say, I’m self made
