(Monk)

You see a nigga running out of hope now

I pray to God I could find my soul now

Aye when I smile i'm just hiding a whole lot

They wonder why I don't cry no mo' now


(Kiddo)

A 9 to 5 don't provide no mo'

I'm getting high just to cloud my lows

Ima die for my pride alone

So if you crying, you ain't crying alone





Verse 1 


(Kiddo)


I know you going through it 

But you ain't the only one stressing in the streets

I done been through so much pain

But I chose to keep it discreet 

I thought the world was finna end

Lost Vontae and Rick in twenty ten

Thought bout quitting, stayed to myself 

And isolated from my friends

Money was low, so was my hope 

Needed guidance, somewhere to go

And through it all, never slipped or fall

I stayed down on my ten toes

You gon' make it quote from my spirit

I wish you niggas could hear it

You know the feeling of having yo mom

Smiling at you, singing yo lyrics, well I do

She said baby you got talent

Hope you know that, yeah I knew

And mama i'm sorry for hitting licks 

And the pain I put you through

And all that talking back and disrespectful things I said to you

But all the mistakes, that I done made, was great

Cuz that's what made me grew


Gotta get a deal, the reason i'm spitting ether

All my family members stuck in Haiti, ain't no visa

I just move with the flow, no telling where ima go

All I need is one yes to overcome all my no's

Verse 2


(Monk)


Yea….. dawg…. check it


I'm tryna get my blessings

God been calling but my fucking phone been disconnected

See I apologize for talking like i'm living reckless

But being broke could make angry and so disrespectful

Success gon' change you but you gotta change to get successful

And that's a problem cuz my circumstances kinda hurt my chances

Plus the certain habits I have causing more than minor damage

I would be mad rich if I could put the dope down

I'm living fast and a nigga tryna slow down

Why I do I act when I know that I don't know how

I should be mad that i'm looking for some hope now

My homie hurting and it hurt me cuz I couldn't help em

How I do I get my shit together without me looking selfish

Me and my baby mama living at my mama crib

My kids ain't old enough to notice that the struggle real

All the money I done made i'm really hustling still

Soon as I touch some bills, it's going to some fucking bills
