Intro

Now if this was 1993, then this would be side B/

And in 2018, Jamel Thomas and NDR are on the scene/

Let’s go, don’t worry about the bill I got you/

This one’s on me….One On The House// 

 

Verse 1

About shinning at the top, I do not give a damn/

4 Kings in the game, ace of hearts in my hand/

Now I just wanna drop the classic tapes and leave em like wow/

I just wanna see the hottest chicks loving our style/

At an industry event, networking the crowd/

They tried to put ya boy to bed they tried to put ya boy down/

It doesn’t bother me naw, cuz it’s the year of upsets/

Trump beat Hil Clinton, you don’t know what to expect//

 

Chorus

So Ima chill and ride the subway-while I still can/

Live a normal life in public-while I still can/

Appreciate the real love shown-while I can/

And know, that she’s not just with me cuz she knows who I am/

Ima chill and ride the subway-while I still can/

Live a normal life in public-while I still can/

Appreciate the real love shown-while I can/

And know, that she’s not just with me cuz she knows who I am/

 

Verse 2

So put me on the top with most of em, I bet you I can hold something/

I bet you I can flow something, I think that you should show someone/

You found me on the low coming, some real hiphop you know something/

This spring we hit the floor running, we promise you some gold summers/

We been up, we been down, while they ran, their big mouth/

Cuz it’s tough, to live now, to set up, the big house/

But we are, not stopping, till we on, and popping/

And I take, my Mom’s to, Versace stores shopping/

I know that they’ve got dreams, underdog like me/

Then you won’t stop fighting even if you’re dying/

Tom Brady’s number 5 ring, the come back, the tight game/

That it’s never over till the fat lady cries thing/

Clever was the kid who reached out for the stars/

Whatever happens form here, just don’t forget that you are/

The same as me, so hang with me I’m good for your health/

These other rappers make you feel like you ain’t got enough wealth..and what else?//

 

Bridge 

What else do they do? What else do they talk about? I dunno man it’s hype when I’m in the club..But what else? It’s ya host, welcome to the game, I’m here with Jamel Thomas and ahh y’all boys out there better step ya game up!

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Outro

Cuz I’m the underdog, you might not know but I know I’m gonna make it

So that means there’s only so much longer, that I can ride the subway

And live a private life in public. There’s only so much longer I can appreciate the love while it’s real

Before it’s mostly fake. I know the women around me now aren’t here cuz I’m famous.

A lot of cats at the top can’t say the same, so I appreciate these times.

 

Because I know they won’t last long.
