Whoever thought 
That I would blow up 

Gave this rap game my Life 
While I was growing up 

Use to see rappers 
Partying after their concerts 

Up in VIP I was there 
Putting in mad work 

Had my mission mapped out 
Since I was a little dude 

Stayed focused on the streets 
Did what I had to do 

Used to feel like rap 
Was a way to get out the trap 

But noticed 
How money and power 
Can bring you right back 

Trying to help folks 
While others tug at your rope 

Provoking your failure 
Yeah life will test ya

And bring out the best in ya
If you diligent with perseverance 

My spirit called for me 
To show my brilliance 

I never waited for the next man 
Because the next man 

Will leave you standing there 
With your foot stuck in the sand 

If you don't move you lose 
Stand still and you's a fool 

Be true to what you do 
Silence critics 
When you show and prove

I'm grinding harder 
Than the rest of them
The Diamond in the ruff *****
I'm the best of them
I show and prove 
I keep my cool among men
I Separate my real people's 
From my fake friends 
No competition 
It's a victorious landslide 
Don't stand against my *****
Come over on my side
We politicking wit dialogue 
That can't hide 
I'm the General 
Here to put things 
Back in align

I'm flying higher than 
I ever been 

Been on the grind so long 
I'm destined to win 

I made a change to my name 
Like 2 Chainz  

Independent hustling 
Yeah doing my thing 

We hit the city up
You see us putting that work in 

We all smiles feeling good 
No need for fronting

My people loving the sounds 
And how we moving it 

I told'em stay in tune 
This is the movement 

I needed time to align 
My lyrical prominence 

Before the world end 
And we forget 
What's heaven sent 

The knowledge left from my ancestors 
Was a gift of life 

I recognize the price 
Of their sacrifice 

I'm here now 
I'm basting in their full glory 

A new dawning at the closing 
Of an old story 

Wisdom pours thru me 
A flavorful delicacy 

I got a chemistry 
With some natural philosophies

I'm grinding harder 
Than the rest of them
The Diamond in the ruff *****
I'm the best of them
I show and prove 
I keep my cool among men
I Separate my real people's 
From my fake friends 
No competition 
It's a victorious landslide 
Don't stand against my *****
Come over on my side
We politicking wit dialogue 
That can't hide 
I'm the General 
Here to put things 
Back in align

I was told to be patient 
The best never makes it 

The good Die Young 
To live past 25 is a blessing 

I knew if I surrounded myself 
With knowledge of self 

I could blast off 
And reach heights 
Beyond physical wealth 

I use to daydream 
While beaming my energy

Into the universe 
Asking the Creator 
To give me the power 

Restore me with the blessings 
Of my ancestors 
Show me the light 

So I can see 
In the darkness of the night 

Like a star shining bright 
In the midst of the Moon 

In the morning i'll rise 
As the flowers bloom 

A new day new age 
Still paving the way 

Looking to better reality 
Without being a Slave 

How could you make it 
And not be forsaken 
For sacrifices taken 

The fortitude of a giant 
In the making 

If I told you 
The grind I went through 

Just to be here 
Would you believe it's true

I'm grinding harder 
Than the rest of them
The Diamond in the ruff *****
I'm the best of them
I show and prove 
I keep my cool among men
I Separate my real people's 
From my fake friends 
No competition 
It's a victorious landslide 
Don't stand against my *****
Come over on my side
We politicking wit dialogue 
That can't hide 
I'm the General 
Here to put things 
Back in align
