  • Yeah, it's all fact no fiction
    It's my interpretation
    Wanna know how it went down? I'll tell ya
    Yo, Biz turn me up a little
    Bit in the headphones man yeah

    Check it, uh
    I guess I take it back to graduation
    Got my degree but writin'
    Songs was my fascination
    I got a job installin' cable
    Then I got promoted
    Moved out my momma house but still
    This music was the motive
    Around this time I'm bumpin'
    Tunnel Rats and CMR but Lil' Jon was on the
    Radio and on the charts
    I got creative took the money that I made
    And bought a beat machine now it's
    Me and T-Dot up late
    And I volunteer at detention centers
    To be a leader
    I got these young dudes lovin' the
    Way I eat the beat up
    I ain't wanna blow up just
    Wanna give 'em Jesus
    Then Ben startin' up Reach Records
    Was all I needed
    I hit the road on the weekends to do a show
    Ain't ask for money but they
    Still gave a lil' dough
    Just a bunch of wild kids in the front row
    Like "You ain't Lil' Wayne, you a lame
    Man I got to go"
    But I did it, and I was on a mission
    And little by little a couple
    Of 'em would get it
    Was rappin' in the hood and
    Folks broke down cryin'
    That's when I knew this was bigger
    Than me and bigger than rhyme

    This is all fact, it's non-fiction
    You wanna hear the truth, pay attention
    And if I never got a mention
    Still do it for the love and the mission
    My interpretation non fiction
    It's all fact, it's all fact
    It's all fact it's non-fiction

    Fast forward just a year later
    I done drop my first album and
    I'm feelin' like I made it
    Goin' all around the world tryna
    Tell them 'bout the Savior (what else?)
    And I ain't trippin' we ain't
    Really gettin' paper nah
    Nah, I'm about to marry me a lady
    I left my old job so I'm praying rap pay me
    I drop my next album Jesus Muzik kinda major
    I moved away to Memphis it
    Was hot as the equator
    And gunshots every night'll make ya wake up
    Sleepin' on the floor hopin' you
    Don't pick a stray up
    Soup campbell took me in and got my weight up
    Then I flew back to Cali
    Started workin' on Rebel
    Uh, we had a feelin' it would be a problem
    It's like the Lord wrote the whole thing
    But at home I was havin' problems
    Married life was like a bad dream
    Now we fightin' every day
    My travel gettin' heavy two
    Babies one baby momma
    I'm arrogant and self-righteous
    Helpin' everybody but
    My wife through the drama

    This is all fact, it's not fiction
    You wanna hear the truth, pay attention
    And if I never got a mention
    Still do it for the love and the mission
    My interpretation non-fiction
    It's all fact, it's all fact
    It's all fact it's non-fiction

    I need a new place new
    Grace new city new state
    Now we all headed to Atlanta
    I'm stressed out tryna lead
    Imma bleed myself
    Burnin' out I can see the pattern
    I'm just writin' my pain over beats and
    I'm guessing Rehab was the outcome
    I wrote Background at the kitchen table
    I thought it wouldn't make the album
    Shortly after I got a hold
    Of Tim Keller's books
    Man I promise you it's like
    My whole life changed
    Andy Crouch wrote a book
    About culture makin'
    And after that I had to make a slight change
    Ask the homies I ain't do
    It for the money man
    Nah, I made Church Clothes out of love
    And me and Street workin' day and night
    Wait a minute, now Gravity is blowin' up
    I won a Grammy
    And I ain't even trippin' on it
    I got a mission that I'm fightin' for
    I'm writin' songs tryin' to
    Give ya substance
    Yeah, I'm writin' songs fightin'
    For ya soul we may run at a different pace
    But let's continue the race
    You runnin' yours, I'm runnin' mine
    I promise I left out a lot of details
