  • Yeah three in the morning on the Westside highway, top down baby
    Fuck y'all
    The motivation for me is them telling me what I could not be
    Oh well

    This a special dedication, (thank y'all)
    I wanna thank you for the fuel
    No really thank you

    (Y'all better hear this shit)
    I felt so inspired by what my teacher said
    Said I'd either be dead or be a reefer head
    Now sure if that's how adults should speak to kids
    Especially when the only thing I did was speak in class
    I 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 say beat it kid, he's on the list
    Its like I'm searching for kicks like a sneaker head
    He goin' keep pushing me until I reach the ledge
    And when I reach the ledge I'll tell em all to eat a dick
    Take a leap of faith and let my eagle wings spread
    Spread spread spread

    The motivation for me is them telling me what I could not be
    Oh well (hey, hey)
    I'm so ambitious (hey)
    I might hit two sisters
    Hey I'm on a mission
    No matter what the conditions
    Forget personal issues
    When you been what I been through
    Hey if you believe it
    Then you could conceive it

    Yeah yeah yeah

    I had to lace up my boots even harder
    Father is too far away to father
    Further-more are the kids either smoke reefer
    Or either move white, there's 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

    The motivation for me is them telling me what I could not be
    Oh well (hey, hey)
    I'm so ambitious (hey)
    I might hit two sisters
    Hey I'm on a mission
    No matter what the conditions
    Forget personal issues
    When you been what I been through
    Hey if you believe it
    Then you could conceive it

    Had a couple of meetings no offers yet
    Maybe I ain't good enough for these offices
    Back to the drawing board ducking officers
    It's all good cause the streets is A and R'in this
    So with or without any of y'all involvement
    We coming for all of this, respect my conglomerate
    I went from pauper to the President
    Cause every deal I ever made set precedent
    Niggas probably thought I'd fall without old 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
    Fuck y'all

    The motivation for me is them telling me what I could not be
    Oh well (hey, hey)
    I'm so ambitious (hey)
    I might hit two sisters
    Hey I'm on a mission
    No matter what the conditions
    Forget personal issues
    When you been what I been through
    Hey if you believe it
    Then you could conceive it

    The motivation for me is them telling me what I could not be Writer/s: Pharrell Williams, Shawn Carter
