lyrics

I Get ready for a night out with all the lights out
Rehearsing my lyrics and taking some time out
I’m putting on my clothes with both my eyes closed
Turn off my iphone getting in my zone, tweaking up my flow
Breathing speaking reading repeating the lyrics that I wrote
Not giving them old just giving them bare just giving them jokez
To show em I care to show em I’m here , to show em I'm there
I show em my past and I keep it so clear i keep is so real
So they feel what they hear, I keep it so real so they feel that they’re here.
With me,
When you see me in the club you see me keeping it humble
Don’t ask for a table, V.I.P not fuck all
Just a glass with 2 bits of ice, n rum on the double
I'm still me on a level no I'm not above you
I just came through the struggle on top
made my aim my number one goal
Pay my wage and be my own boss
And don't let no one tell me I won’t
swapped a road life for a microphone
Studio time, to put the right words
Cos if I back tracked and breached my parole
I would have grabbed a strap and died first
Cos the judge told me that I’d get life
when he see’s me back in there next time
And you best believe it yeah I believed him
Cos the guy before me got 25
i’ve never seen death in something alive
Went grey looked dead in his eyes
3 strikes he’s out In a case where nobody died
But by the look of this guy nobody survived

Over 2 million bars in my pad and I’m ready to drop them
I changed my circle I don’t go around dodgems
Had to go away for a few years, and i got forgotten
Now im MCF with a #bestinscotland

Never been more determined or focused
Still on course to walk on my own
Had to turn my back on that joker
But now they get to know jokez
I’m the Patient, doctor, voice of the people
And they call me the crazy creative
Used to hate it, but now i’m proud of the label
cos without it I’m not be able to make this
Made changes, switched lanes quick
My situation was dangerous
I'm talking places where strangers
Would stab you up for your trainers
Courageous, hungry teenagers
our nature Uneducated
So dedicated to make it
but Its all wasted with hatred
so I had to leave prison and get a fresh start
leave the metal ones for the written bars
Get my head straight and get off the meds
Cos my lungs are healed and I've got the heart
I could be an inspiration or incarcerated
I could be locked away again or be creative
I could give motivation through my mistakes
so I set the way with the dream I'm chasing
Quit, me, nah not ever
im deep & I'm feeling the pressure
Been off the meds for over 5 years
And trust ive never been better
Head so clear with no interference
Now I hear the beat and ignite the lyrics
I can close my eyes I can see the image
And I can paint my dream and they can see it finished
cos now my past was worth every minute
Yeah all my scars and yeah all the prisons
Wouldn’t change it or do it different
like body art that shapes my appearance
the pain and permanent pictures
from my face all down to my fingers
So I'll always know where I came from
Cos it’s the man that I see in my mirrors

Over 2 million bars in my pad and I’m ready to drop them
I changed my circle I don’t go around dodgems
Had to go away for a few years, and i got forgotten
Now im MCF with a #bestinscotland

I've got butterflies and I'm nervous
I can hear them calling my name
Start to doubt i’ve got my bars perfect
That mad feeling walking on stage
Then I start to spit and get settled in
Like ive sparked a spliff with adrenaline
My hearts pumped, I'm remembering
Everything every bar cos its genuine
it’s all me, just me and myself & jokez
I just breath, n exhale the smoke
n don't choke as it leaves my throat
i go in, don't stop till I leave the show & im sat at home
Curled up with my jacket on
My air max still tied, go sleep and I dream beyond
I Go deep til theres no response
i go deep in the dream and find me where I belong
And it won’t be long till I wake up
plug my iPhone into its charger
Put my pen back on to that paper
And chase that dream a little bit harder
Cos I came through the struggle on top
made my aim my number one goal
Pay my wage and be my own boss
now Its on me, myself, your boy jokez
