Started from the bottom as a
Hustling teen trying to come up to
Live in the dream. I came from the
Hood but that don’t define me. You
Say you don’t like me well guess
What I’m not here to please you.
You try to be me because you think its
Cool. So you breaking the rules having
That fear when you can’t sleep because
The block you on. You can’t
Be me—there is only one me so
Don’t put yourself in my shoes
Because trust me, you’ll fall on the
First step so you do you and I’ma
Do me because that’s the best you
Can be because I made it to the
Dream. I’ma be a marine, so step
Up and you can live the dream too.
Dream big because that’s what I do.
