Grown Man

Album: The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted (2010)
  • Now that I'm finally free,
    I'm 'bouta throw it again
    I take my life in my hands
    Cause I'm much more than a man
    (I am grown ass man)
    Now that I'm finally free

    I was lost but now I'm found
    I was blind but now I see
    Super high can't touch the ground
    Life tested me but god blessin' me
    Every sixteen bars is testimony
    From the jailhouse junk to the Testarossa
    I have find myself then remind myself
    Woke up I'm grown I gotta blame myself
    Streets taught me everything I train to sell
    Did wrong so long know didn't know nothin' else
    Then my lima crew was like me a member
    Think every man worth, enemies himself
    Glad as well but I'm mad as hell
    Cause my best friend probably gon' die in jail
    I ain't no lie to tell prolly cry like hell
    If I dwell on it 'cause he got a eighty years
    I'm going hard see I might as well
    Guess I gotta a hard head like my daddy had
    And my daddy dad my great great great great
    Grandpa had a really crazy swag
    So I stand a day
    Diggin' down a grave
    That if I can change now
    And my mind is made
    A got a point and prove
    And a sign to raise
    Can't let them make mistakes
    That his daddy made

    Finally free,
    You're never send me away
    Took everything that I had
    For me to follow the plan
    Now that I'm finally free,
    I'm 'bouta throw it again
    I take my life in my hands
    Cause I'm much more than a man
    Now that I'm finally free

    Squash the beef im free of that
    This crazy summer ain't feelin that
    I guess they wanna see us kill each other
    If im dead who the fuck gon' help my mother
    I done struggled to hustle im too hard for this
    I done rushed and killed ain't proud of that
    Smoke weed took pills sold powder patches
    I'm a solider I understand where the cowards at
    My home boy gone where the flowers at
    Out of money and the work can't bring that back
    If I had one wish, wish momma there
    Could come down now and see me rap
    But she see me now and I believe in that
    Wanna script of that, I ain't going back
    So I put my family on I my back
    Lost so much I cant pay that back
    I was lost but now I'm found
    I was blind but now I see
    Super high can't touch the ground
    Life tested me but god blessin' me
    Every sixteen bars is testimony
    From the jailhouse junk to the Testarossa
    I have find myself then remind myself
    Fuck up the wrong I gotta blind myself
    It's Gucci, huh

    Finally free,
    You'll never take me away
    Took everything that I have
    For me to follow the plan
    Now that I' m finally free,
    I'm 'bouta do it again
    I take my life in my hands
    Cause I'm much more than a man
    Now that I'm finally free

    I was lost but now I'm found
    Don't you push, can't keep me down
    Seen my life go round and round
    I say I straighten out my life
    And I ain't never going back no

    Now that I'm finally free,
    Finally free,
    You'll never take me away
    You'll never take me away
    To get everything that I have
    Everything that I
    You need to follow the plan
    You need to follow the plan
    Now that I'm finally free,
    Finally free
    I'm 'bouta do it again
    Throw it again
    I take my life in my hands
    I take my life in my hands
    Cause I'm much more than a man
    I'm much more than a man
    Now that I'm finally free
