Now, this is my job, I will not quit it Pulled me out the depths when I thought that I was finished Yeah I questioned if I could go the distance That's just the work, regardless of who's listening, listening Listen, see I was meant to be a warrior Fight something amongst me, leave here victorious Classroom of kids, or a venue performing
If I'd had done for the money I'd have been a fucking lawyer
Concrete, vagabond, van telling stories Humbled by the road, I'm realizing I'm not important See life's a beautiful struggle, I record it
Hope it helps you maneuvering through yours and
That's why we stay in the lab at night I've been staring into this pad for over half my life
A true artist won't be satisfied So I guess that's the sacrifice And I say

Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful All my people stay true
I say,
Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful All my people stay true
 Forget about the fame, fortune and the mansion Sitting and tripping watching myself on a plasma Yeah, I start slipping when I'm thinking about that stuff Ego won't swole until the karma catches that up, that up
I'm my grandma's number one grandson I lost myself to remember who that was
We start thinking about some kicks, a necklace What I really need is a job off Craigslist Take away the dot com, name, love
Fans, twitter followers, and the buzz
See, you keep the issues but you take away the drugs And I had to find out who I really was
Who I really wasn't
So sick of who I was becoming Yeah, tired of running Time to look at the man in the mirror until I can learn to love him

Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful All my people stay true
I said,
Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful All my people stay true

Of course, I want dubs and a candy painted 'lac Watch the videos and get the girls in the back
But if that's what I believe in, and the reason that I rap Uncle Sam is my pimp when he puts me on the track 
Of course I want dubs and a candy painted 'lac Watch the videos and get the girls in the back
But if that's what I believe in, and the reason that I rap Uncle Sam is my pimp when he puts me on the track 
Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful Stay true, stay true
And I said,
Make the money, don't let the money make you Change the game, don't let the game change you
I'll forever remain faithful Stay true, stay true, stay true
 Forget about the fame
I said forget about the fame
I'll forever remain faithful Stay true, stay true, stay true
