  • God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress
    Got a big heart when it comes to my family (You are now listening to Young Chencs)
    But in the streets, my heart is the coldest
    My personal life ain't right but I'm putting this first so I won't lose focus
    'Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

    They already know I can rap, the mandem trap, I can do that too
    I-I picked up the phone, I heard some terrible news that'll ruin your mood
    They made some change and forgot their roots
    I made some change and picked up the young Gs
    Took them shoppin' and copped them shoes
    This ho forgot she got fucked
    You need a reminder, you're not brand new
    I should've kicked that one to the curb
    There and then, but I'm not that rude
    Had-had some hoes back when I was broke
    They wanna come home, but I got no room
    So many years I slept on the sofa
    They don't know the half, they got no clue
    Huh? Said I was a "One hit wonder", I took that shot and I followed it through
    Don't worry 'bout hollerin' chicks
    Get rich, they'll switch and holla at you
    Sat in the trap, turned one into two
    But that ain't what I wanted to do
    The fame get a bit too much sometimes
    Fan-page tryna follow the goons
    Fan-page tryna follow my pups
    The fans love me and I love them too
    Cah Cench ain't better than none
    La-last time I let that slide
    But this time I ain't gonna let that run
    They made, they made a diss track
    That shit was too wack to get a response, huh?
    It's sad cah I love my hood where I'm from
    But that place ain't where I belong
    Clean up the scene, I don't need no mop
    Pull up your jeans, all I need is slop
    Don't believe in greed, I don't need a lot
    Let my Gs all lick off the cream on top
    Remember the floorin' peelin' off, haddamp all over the ceilin'
    We trap for a positive reason
    All 'cause the rap weren't bringin' no Ps in

    God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress
    Got a big heart when it comes to my family
    But in the streets, my heart is the coldest
    My personal life ain't right but I'm putting this first so I won't lose focus
    'Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

    I stay tryna better my life, but I got pain that I can't get off my mind
    I can't get rid of my demons, all of my feelings, I kept inside
    I'd never sell my soul or switch on bro in desperate times
    My angel there on my shoulder tellin' me "No"
    I'm bipolar, no Jekyll and Hyde
    I gotta think twice what come out my mouth these days cah I know I got a voice
    I'm the head of my family now, I gotta get in my bag, I got no choice
    I'm bait, I gotta roll safe, there's a few places that I'd rather avoid
    I made it, I might have a baby, I don't mind a daughter, I'd rather a boy
    Bro-bro could've went pro in the field, but he broke his Achilles heel
    The other, the other day it was free K-Trap, not the one from Gipsy Hill
    Fuck a eighty-twenty, I told them "Send me a fifty-fifty deal"
    From Bush to Beverly Hills
    I'm lookin' at bro like "Look at the shit we've built"
    O-OT, I seen a man smoke crack on a Red Bull can
    I'm throwin' my Ws up like Wu-Tang Clan, I'm a method man
    Ask my mum what I'm like, she'll say that I'm selfless and I give back
    If you ask my ex what I'm like, she'll say I'm a narcissist and a sociopath (came a long way)
    Came a long way, still got a very long way to go
    Just a yute, I was confused when I saw my family takin' coke
    I understand it now that I'm grown
    Real trap boy, I don't play with my nose
    Just the way that it goes
    I can't judge them when it made me dough

    God-God knows my intention, I sin for the sake of progress
    Got a big heart when it comes to my family
    But in the streets, my heart is the coldest
    My personal life ain't right but I'm putting this first so I won't lose focus
    'Member I needed a helping hand, reached out and I got cold shoulders

    From Bush to Beverly Hills
    I'm lookin' at bro like "Look at the shit we've built"
    Said I was a "One hit wonder", I took that shot and I followed it through Writer/s: Oakley Neil H Caesar-Su, Valentino Angelo Salvi
