Do or die Look, all I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah Wishing all the OGs could see me now, now yeah And when you feel something you can't see But you know it's meant to be You gonna realize that this is bigger than me yeah Bigger than me, bigger than me When the whole family depend on you to eat man That night you can't sleep You gon' realize that this is bigger than me Get it, get it, get it I pray that you get it even if I can't get it with cha I pray to God you never let the little Things in life distract you from the bigger picture Everybody in the city to me like a distant cousin, brother, little sister I see myself in the young ones When I look in their eyes it feel like a mirror Corleone all on my own (Don) Cartier all on my arm All I hear is sirens and car alarms Niggas going to war with no armor on First time I seen a dead body I was 14 And I felt the pressure Like if I don't get it, I might end up next to him I'ma take the dice and I'ma roll a 7 Seven, seven, seven, 7-11 it's 911 getting called around The hood America's lost and found Where niggas get lost and never found All I ever wanted was to turn these Gs into Ms and a Mercedes key Got it and I still felt incomplete That's when I realized this shit was bigger than me Bigger than me When the whole town on their feet And they all just waiting on you to speak That's when you realize that this is bigger than me All I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah Wishing all the OGs could see me now, now yeah Ohhh ya ya yeah Ohhh ya ya yeah You gon' realize that this was bigger than me Used to want that foreign Got that foreign, now it's boring Started touring Swear to God that's when I realized this shit was bigger than me Flash on niggas with the Rollie Got that Rollie with the shine But lost my time That's when I realized this shit was bigger than me I seen people in the same place 10 years later Man that shit pathetic God talking to me telepathic like it only happen if you let it I can't spend my whole life looking at the same ceiling fan When I feel like I ain't got no ceilings man If I ain't special why I feel it then? I gotta get on the road I gotta be the one chose I gotta come back and tell the greatest story they never told This must be the feeling that you get when you know you close And you know it's a way in even when the doors are closed And realize this shit is bigger than me yeah Bigger than me When the whole town on their feet And they all just waiting on you to speak That's when you realize that this is bigger than me All I wanna do is make the city proud, yeah Wishing all the OGs could see me now, now yeah Oh ya ya yeah Oh ya ya yeah Oh ya ya yeah Oh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah Oh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah Oh ya ya ya ya ya ya ya yeah Well no matter what, I'm proud of you Even when you do stupid things that I have warned you about You must get that from your daddy I'm just kidding, you know I love you. You listening? Yeah yeah, I'm listening. I love you too In a way I feel like I'm living through you Sometimes it feels like I got another chance at everything Man that's deep to feel like that I kinda feel the same way though sometimes Yeah With all the work that's goin' on I feel like This is like my second time doin' it so I know that sound crazy but You know I just I don't know why I always imagine myself as Like someone who failed at everything he ever did at life You know and I got to the end of life and just regretted it all and somehow This is my chance to go back and get it all right And when I wake up, with that in mind you know It completely changes my hunger, how I approach the whole day I mean you decide to live your life like that then pshh man I guarantee we'll live life to our best potential It's that simple. It's all about living in the moment. Period
