Return of the Mac, get em
What it is
What it does
What it is
What it isn't
 Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
 Instead of getting on the internet and checking out who hit me, get up
 Thrift shop, pimp strut walking
 Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious  Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby  Sweater game nope nope y’all can’t copy
Yup, Bad, moonwalking 
This here, is our party 
My posse's been on Broadway 
And we did it our way
 Grown music
I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
And yet I’m on
Let that stage light go and shine on down
Got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style 
Money, stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
But, I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
 Trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustlin'
 Chasing dreams since I was 14
With the four track bussing
 Halfway cross that city with the backpack 
Fat cat, crushing labels out here
Nah they can’t tell me nothing 
We give that to the people  Spread it across the country  Labels out here
Nah they can’t tell me nothing 
We give it to the people  Spread it across the country 

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Now can I kick it, thank you
Yeah I’m so damn grateful 
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts 
But that’s what you get when Wu-Tang raised you
Y’all can’t stop me
Go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And I’m eating at the beat like you gave a little  speed to a great white shark on shark week
Raw, time to go off, I'm gone!
 Deuces goodbye, I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome
 Caesar make you a believer 
Nah I never ever did it for a throne 
That validation comes from giving it back to the people 
Nah sing a song and it goes like
 Raise those hands, this is our party 
We came here to live life like nobody was watching 
I got my city right behind me, if I fall, they got me
 Learn from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching I said

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Na na na na na na na na
And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na
And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na
And all my people say

Na na na na na na na na
Ma-ckle-e-e-e-e-more

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Can we go back, this is the moment  Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
