I see all this fake stuff going on
People not supporting
People doubting the power
People slandering me behind my back
Once I do something lucrative
All a sudden, you emerge from your little box
With the words “congratulations” or
“I’m so proud of you” inside of your mouth
Now fools wanting to claim me
“That’s my son”
“That’s my boy”
“That’s my nephew”
Miss me with that nonsense
Now you tellin’ everyone how you met me
Who I was before I made it
It’s because you never believed in me,
until I had to show you just how incorrect you were in your statement
I see that life has now changed
Doors swing open whenever I walk right through them
Fans are now pointing me out in public
Women wanna bone, though I’m not throwin’ any
Don’t waste your time or mines either
If it ain’t about the bread and the cheese,
then it ain’t about nothing fam
I always got called out of my name
Now I’m getting mister,
first and last within the same sentence
I see that my influence is reaching
Eyes are on me, even if you are steady cutting em’
My name has gotten around, I’m bein’ discussed
in places dat’ I ain’ even stepped into yet
Link with savage writer,
he’s all over the damn 862
973 I mean –
You know what I’m saying,
