From Down To The Top

Born in the 305, raised to be one of a kind.

Grew up to be better than brother who had met his demise. Never knew how nor why he was never he by my side, until I grew up and was told.

Then I knew that my life was determined. That I will never stop till I was on top.

So then I began to rap and trap, never to be in a mishap..

Once I began to be noticed, I began to be different.

Once I even told my parents that I wish my music was never noticed. But once I knew it, there was no other way around, but to go through it.

So I run to the finish line and seen the spotlights and now I'm playing in the fields of those that came before. Like Tupac, Biggie, and may other more.

Now I'm here it sucks because nobody is here who can also do it. Not Drake, Nicki, Wayne, Doja or even Megan.

But to be at the top doesn't mean everyone will notice, they will only ever know when you're done with your moment.

~ Fin
