The Division of Real & Fake

K.T. Brown 1990 (Greenwood, SC)



There are certain definitions of what's real and what's fake.
What's true and what's false.
Some state the facts,
Others an opinion.
Most niggas tryin' to act real but their heart is their true judgment.
I'm just sick and tired of the fakers frontin',
They just garbage for yesterday's season.
Being real ain't about acting and posting like you about something.
It's about going hard and pushing towards your limitation.
Trying to prove me wrong and you're nothing but a false claimer.
Life is too real,
No need to play,
 The truth brings pain which makes you squeal.
The truth will set freedom,
Lies will spread adversity.
You see real and fake is kind of like love and hate.
But the path I walk is truth because fakers are haters which I blow em to smoke.
