Joyner lucas - Legend

Shit, I close my eyes sometimes and I just think, like
Like, did you really do this shit, my nigga? Like
Is this shit even real, cuz?
Ha, this shit crazy
I go to sleep and try to wake up with a clear conscience and shit
You feel me? Like
I done been through the mud
A nigga sacrificed a lot to get to the endzone, my nigga
Just tryna give our kids a better life than we had it, nigga
I always wanted to change the cycle and
Create a new generation and pass down everythin' I worked for, my nigga
I'm just I'm just thinkin' out loud
Look (yeah)

I wonder where life would probably take me, yeah
Won't break me, yeah
I show some love to niggas who hate me, yeah (yeah)
That's crazy, yeah
I kept my cool without no AC, yeah (word)
Got somethin' to prove,
I jumped in the pool and now I'm wavy, yeah (splash)
And lately I've been tryna hold my blessin's
You talk to God, but you don't know the message
Those are lessons (yeah)
Walkin' in circles, without no direction
No exceptions (whoa)
Don't give advice if you don't know the pressure
Close your lips
'Cause half of you more full of shit than colon cleanses (woo)
I was born in inside a manger (word)
And no one ever did me favors, now I'm highly favored (yeah)
I finally made it out the hood, now I ain't got no neighbors (nope)
So before you talk to me, you gotta sign a waiver (woo)
Post-traumatic stress disorder keep my conscience racin'
Deep inside my thoughts
Wonder how much I can grow, if I just even out my flaws (yeah)
How I teach myself I'm still a winner even when I lost
And if I lose, I know I'll still be on, even when I'm off
I took my chances and I'm eatin' now
I'm finally learnin' all the shit I used to read about
Now I could live all of the shit I used to dream about
'Cause niggas tried to leave me out
But I learned to get revenge through my success and so we even now
I stare at my reflection 'cause I like what I see (I like what I see)
All them years at CVS workin' them nights on my feet
Ain't a nigga where I'm from'll reach the heights that I'll reach (word)
I'll risk it all to give this life to my seed


And if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend
They gon' play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected (look)
Said, if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend
And if they play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected

(Maybach music)
I done seen a couple niggas lose they life over a dollar (huh)
Henny hit the hardest when it's not an outsider
Better keep your money close 'cause that's the only thing that's honest
Everybody thuggin' 'til they gotta face your honor
'64 Impala, hoppin', scrapin' bumpin' chronic
Ridin' solo 'cause these pussy-niggas out here countin' pockets (huh)
Stackin' all my money, at the same time lackin' knowledge
Homegrown in the south is in my blood and body-body
You say you own your masters, can you tell me what they worth?
I still be havin' flashes 'cause it came from doin' dirt
Fifty restaurants all poppin' and I still be poppin' Percs (huh)
Get you to support but then they rob you for your merch (why)
Shot her in the foot, what pussy-boy, you rockin' skirts? (gang)
Pj to Miami where you know who got to work
Got the condo on the beaches, let the bitches come and twerk (twerk)
Woke up out a coma, fuck around and fuck a nurse

And if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend (huh)
They gon' play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected (look)
Said if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend
And if they play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected
And if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend
They gon' play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected
Said if I die today I'm goin' out a fuckin' legend
I was lookin' to the dope boys in the FUBU
And if they play this when I'm gone and I'll be resurrected
Now they lookin' up to us, you heard me? (Uh)
