lyrics

Now if there's one thing that I can't stand
Is people using music as a way to feel grand
All up in my face like "look what I can do"
You're just a cry baby like Stewart on MadTV
Begging for attention but I won't give you any
Find me in the club with your shades on, looking flashy
Coming up to me like "wassup with you?"
"To tell you the truth well I've been chilling how about you?"
"Well I've been here, there, this, that, worked with him, worked with her"
Brotha I know
Cuz you told me the same ish 8 months ago
Prepared speech up in the studio
Showing me your skills
Boy you ill but I know the deal
You're no buffet just one meal
Heard your whole range after an hour
To busy looking busy your potential goes sour
Sing it like

CHORUS

Wanna talk about the fame you got
I ain't hearing it
Wanna talk about the thing you bought
I ain't hearing it
Wanna list everything you've done
I ain't hearing it
Can't be humble on some real talk
I ain't hearing it

VERSE 2

Heard it all before
Same walk, same talk
Man its such a bore
Caught in the game, don't you ever want more?
Learn and expand, that's the way I roll
Grounded, humble, say do it for the people
All I ever wanna do it grow, never settle
Stagnate in my own potential
What i waste
Let it get to your head slows your pace
And dumbing down it poor taste
Music is a language
you gotta understand it
The more tools you got
Say the more you can command it
Gift of gab, vocab-ulary is necessary
To many ignore how greater it could be
Musically, humanly
Elevate to a higher ground
Can do so
Going around
Dumbing it down
Straight up looking better than you really sound
Straight up looking better than you really sound
