  • Yeah. yeah. yeah. aye.
    Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo,
    I say still I stand
    Hey shorty here I am

    Never have ya seen in ya lifetime
    A more divine southern rapper wit a swag like mine
    Facing all kind of time
    But smile like I'm fine
    Brag with such passion and shine without trying
    Believe me pain's a small thing to a giant
    I was born without a dime
    Out the gutter I climbed
    Spoke my mind
    And didn't stutter one time
    Ali say even the greatest gotta suffer some time
    So I huff and puff rhymes
    Lyrics so sick with it
    Set the standard in Atlanta
    How to get get get it
    So you up and coming rappers wanna dis just kill it
    I'm officially the realest
    Point blank period
    Whether I still live in the hood or just visit
    Whatever you can do in the hood I done did it
    That why the dope boys and the misfits feel it
    This still his city as long as tip living (listen)

    I ain't dead (no)
    I ain't done (no)
    I ain't scared (of what!)
    I ain't run (from who!)
    But still I stand (yeah)
    No matter what VA here I am(Yeah)
    No matter what remember
    I ain't break (never)
    I ain't fold (never)
    They hate me more (so!)
    Yeah I know
    There I go (yeah)
    No matter what shorty here I go
    No matter what shorty

    You let the blog sites and the magazines tell it
    I'm sure to be in jail till 2027
    Rather see me in a cell in-
    Stead of this new McLaren
    God'll take you through hell just to get you to heaven
    So even know its heavy the load I will carry
    Grin and still bear it
    Win and still share it
    Apologies to the fans I hope you can understand it
    Life can change ya directions
    Even when you ain't planned it
    All you can do is handle it
    The worst thing you could do is panic
    Use it to your advantage
    Avoid insanity manage to conquer
    Every obstacle
    Make impossible possible
    Even when winnings illogical
    Losing's still far from optional
    Yeah they wanna see you shot up in the hospital
    But one life throw punches, block ya counter like a boxer do
    Been locked inside my case too long
    I did a song to make it known that the king lives on
    (Pimping)

    I ain't dead (no)
    I ain't done (no)
    I ain't scared (of what!)
    I ain't run (from who!)
    But still I stand (yeah)
    No matter what VA here I am(Yeah)
    No matter what remember
    I ain't break (never)
    I ain't fold (never)
    They hate me more (so!)
    Yeah I know
    There I go (yeah)
    No matter what shorty here I go
    No matter what shorty

    Even in solitude
    There's still no hotter dude
    I show you how to do
    What you do
    You ain't got a clue
    All you do is follow dudes
    Sound like a lot of dudes
    I weather whatever storm
    Make it out without a bruise
    I understand why
    Now wit my hands tied
    They take shots cause if I'm out there it's a land slide
    But revenge is best served as a cold dish
    And suckers will get served, nigga no shit
    Guess it was understood for me it was over with
    But I don't quit if ya ain't notice yet
    They couldn't wait to say good night shorty
    So they can try to rhyme act and look like shorty
    Go get a beat from Toomp? and make a hook like shorty
    Before ya know it I'm back
    What it look like shorty
    I lost my partner and my daughter in the same year
    Somehow I rise above my problems and remain here
    Yeah and I hope the picture painted clear
    If ya heart filled with faith then ya cant fear
    Wonder how I face years and I'm still chillin'
    Easy, let go and let god deal wit it

    I ain't dead (no)
    I ain't done (no)
    I ain't scared (of what!)
    I ain't run (from who!)
    But still I stand (yeah)
    No matter what VA here I am(Yeah)
    No matter what remember
    I ain't break (never)
    I ain't fold (never)
    They hate me more (so!)
    Yeah I know
    There I go (yeah)
    No matter what shorty here I go
    No matter what shorty Writer/s: CLIFFORD HARRIS, NATE HILLS, MARCELLA ARAICA
