Jay-z Pharrell Williams - So Ambitious

[Pharrell]
Yeah 3 in the morning on the Westside highway, top down baby,
F-ck y'all
The motivation for me was them telling me what I couldn't be,
oh well,

[Jay-Z]
This a special dedication,
i wanna thank you for the fuel,
no really thank you,

I felt so inspired by what my teacher said,
said I'd either be dead or be a reefer head,
not sure if thats how adults should speak ta kids,
especially when the only thing i did was speak in class,
i'll teach his ass,
even betters what my uncle did,

I pop my demo tape in start to beat my head,
peaked out my eye, see if he was beating his,
he might as well-have-said beat it kid, he's on the list,
its like Im searching for kicks like a sneaker head,
he gon keep pushing me until i reach the ledge,
and when I reach the ledge i'll tell em all to eat a d-ck,
take a leap of faith and let my eagle wings spread,
spread spread.

[Pharrell - Chorus]
Motivation for me was them telling me what I could not be,
oh well,
I'm so ambitious,
I might hit two sisters,
hey im on a mission
no matter what the conditions,
Forget the personal issues
when you been what i been through,
hey if you believe it,
then you could conceive it.

[Jay-Z]
I had to lace up my boots even harder,
father is too far away to father,
further-more of the kids either smoke reefer,
or either move white, theres few writers in my cipher,
so they made lighter, my type a dreams seem dumb
they said wise up, how many guys a you see making it from here,
the world don't like us, is that not clear, alright,

But I'm different, i can't base what I'm gonna be off a what everybody isn't, they don't listen, just whispering behind my back,
no vision, lack of ambition,
so wack!

[Chorus]

[Jay-Z]
Had a couple of meetings no offers yet,
maybe I aint good enough for these offices,
back to the drawing board ducking officers,
it's all good cos the streets is A&R'ing this,
so with or without any of your involvement,
coming for all of this, respect my conglomerate,
I went from pauper to the President,
every deal I ever made set precedent,

n-ggas prob'ly thought I'd fall without ol' buddy,
oh buddy, what i do is make more money,
Dear Teacher, your probably somewhere near a speaker,
i'm balling outta control, can you hear my sneakers,
f-ck y'all,

[Chorus]
