Track Name: YOUNG VET (Intro)
Youngin’ had a dream when I was 16
I’ma kill ‘em all with these 16s
I’ma go and ball like the big teams
‘Til the screens fall
Watch it all on the big screen, yah!
OG said I had to boss up
Know yourself
Know your worth
Get ya cost up
If they ain't got it all
Tell ‘em get lost, bruh
You know I only play when I want
Randy Moss, cuz
Been an all-star
So I give you the game
You too busy with gang gang gang gang
So I took the lane
And I never had to explain
Made a gold medal
From struggling chains
But I never changed
I’m really the same
Take shots at me
‘Cuz I’m really the aim
My queen dash to me
So she really my dame
Just face it, I’m really the man! (Main)
My sessions be lit
And I don’t try
You jump out the window
And don’t fly
You fall to your death
And we don’t cry
They put me in fire
I won’t fry
Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego
I bend the block
It’s biblical
I gets the dough
I’m just a prophet for profit
And you can’t do nothing to stop it
Just stop it now, ugh!
Track Name: Curry from 30
(Chorus)

I'm going Curry from 30
I'm going Curry from 30
I’m going Curry from 30
I'm going Curry from 30
100 percent from the field
I might go 30 for 30
You should be watching my films
I need a 30 for 30

I'm going Curry from 30
I'm going Curry from 30
I’m going Curry from 30
I'm going Curry from 30
100 percent from the field
I might go 30 for 30
You should be watching my films
I need a 30 for 30

(Verse 1)

I’m going Curry from 30
All of you guys should be worried
I’m off the injury reserve
30 back on the back my jersey
Balling with ice in my veins
I turn this whole game to McFlurry
Said you was balling like James
I don’t think none of you worthy
Mike Dreams, I’m the young vet
Why these old heads upset?
Why you mad at the young boys
Just ‘cuz you ain’t get enough checks?
Probably need to get ya nuts checked
My new sound like a gut check
I might risk fouling out
Just to hit you pump fakers
With the jump flex
Drop a bomb on ‘em
From 30
I grew up right by the 30s
Where they would just pull up and shoot
You better make it home early
Still I made it through the fire
All praises the Messiah
They might have had it back in they time
But even Jordan had to retire
Track Name: Work Day (ft. THA RIFT)
(Chorus - Mike Dreams)

I ain't really come to play with y'all, naw
I ain't really come to play at all, naw
I'm on my job until they lay me off, huh
But first, they gotta pay me, dawg
Cuz everyday's a workday, workday
Cuz everyday's a workday, workday
Don’t even take off on my birthday, birthday
That's cuz everyday's a workday, workday

(Verse 1 - Mike Dreams)

Everyday I go to work
I’m out here grindin’
‘Til I’m in the dirt
Putting my time in
Or rhyming a verse
I need everything
That I'm worth
I got a daughter to feed
Know that she all that I need
And she depending on me
360 degrees
That’s by any means
I’m bodying beats
I’m punching the clock
Like I'm in the streets
And pumping the block
Ducking police
And dumping at opps
Cuz I’m on my beast
No matter the cost
I gotta eat
The life of a boss
‘Til rocks in my watch
When it's time to floss
I got the gloss
The juice and the sauce
I whip it together
Like it’s in a pot, yeah
Either you get it or nah, yah
Either you it or not, yah
Hustle I get from my pops, yah
Learn how to flip it or flop, yah
24/7/365, I’ma pull up like I’m
Making a drop, ay
I’m never taking a loss
But that’s what you get when you
Aim for the top
Ballin, I been on my business
They callin’, I been on a mission
All of that show money’s cool
But I’m out here plottin’ on billions
‘Til money stack to the ceiling
‘Til it get higher than buildings
All these empires I’m building
Why not make a killing
While you make a living?
Track Name: Already Wavy
[Chorus]
Don’t you ever try to play me!
You know I’m already wavy!
You know I’m already wavy!
You know I’m already wavy!
Whole city go crazy!
They know I’m already wavy!
They know I’m already wavy!
They know I’m already wavy!

[Verse 1]
I been dope like the 80s
You know I’m already wavy
You know I’m already crazy
From the side where they made me
Can’t see me ‘til they pay me
Can’t see me, on baby!
All my life been amazing
That’s just how mama raised me
I came up heavy in this
Whole different level than his
Look at the flex of the wrist
Gotta collect on my hits
Uncle was checkin’’ them bricks
Cousin got knocked with a stick
Automatic 6 minus 1
‘Cuz he ain’t get caught with the clips
I never follow the clique
I been the boss of my ship
I been the captain
That’s making it happen
Look, I know the cost of the trip
I never lost it a bit
That’s cuz I’m already it!
Y’all just now trying to catch fire
You know I’m already lit!

[Chorus]
Don’t you ever try to play me!
You know I’m already wavy!
You know I’m already wavy!
You know I’m already wavy!
Whole city go crazy!
They know I’m already wavy!
They know I’m already wavy!
They know I’m already wavy!

[Verse 2]
Keep that thang
Running like a track meet, yeah
I been on the wave
‘Fore trap beats
And you know that money do attract me, yeah
And we still yelling FREE MAX B
Same old thing
With the team, doe
Got the whole gang gettin’ green, doe
Keep it one hunnit like a C-Note, hey
Hottest thing poppin’ on the scene though!

Don’t be calling while I’m at work
E’rybody tryna network
But don’t you ever try to add me
If you ain’t adding to my net worth
Struggle rap?
Naw, it’s hustle rap!
Keep talking!
I'll muffle that
Keep barking
I’ll call the dawgs!
They’ll come through
And muzzle that!
Same old thing
With the team, doe
Got the whole gang gettin’ green, doe
Keep it one hunnit like a C-Note, hey
Hottest thing poppin’ on the scene though!
You taking selfies with celebrities?
By myself, I’m a celebrity
Too much sauce, boy, I’m cooking up
Y’all ain’t even got the recipe
Track Name: Next Thing Ya Know (ft. Chris Parker)
(Chorus - Chris Parker)

We might just slow dance to a slow jam
Next thing you know
We’ll be in the bedroom
You’ll be no hands

We might just slow dance to a slow jam
Next thing you know
We’ll be in the bedroom
You’ll be no hands

Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next Thing Ya Know

(Verse 1 - Mike Dreams)

What it is, what it do, love?
These years, I been lookin’ for my true love
You know I see you wit ya crew
That’s crew love
But don’t be actin’ brand new
If I cruise up
‘Cuz I met you in the club like way back
And I was feeling you then
But I ain’t say that
Fast forward to the present
I’m behind you like the past
And you giving me a present
While I lay back
Let me save that
We can take our time, I know you like it nice and slow
Like it’s 7 o’clock on the dot
And when you drop
To the top I might just go
Ay, your number one spot
I might be close
Issa hit
We’ll see how far we go
To the rhythm of the beat
In the sheets
At the least, I does the most
Whoa

(Chorus - Chris Parker)

We might just slow dance to a slow jam
Next thing you know
We’ll be in the bedroom
You’ll be no hands

We might just slow dance to a slow jam
Next thing you know
We’ll be in the bedroom
You’ll be no hands

Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next thing Ya know, ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo
Next Thing Ya Know

(Verse 2)

You know I love ya mind
Body, Face, and ya hips
Let me give you a kiss
You can pick which lips
Did I let that slip
If I fall for you, baby
Know you ain’t gon’ trip
And when I hit
Know I ain’t gon’ miss
Throw it back
I’ll catch it
If you catch my drift
Drip
Make it last with you
Make it split
Like I’m trying to share half with you
And if I go too fast
You can let me know
I’ll slow it back down
We’ll go another around
Flip around and go some more
Ay, your number one spot
I might be close
Issa hit
We’ll see how far we go
To the rhythm of the beat
In the sheets
At the least, I does the most
Whoa
Track Name: Need You
(Chorus)

(Vocal Sample - Jamecia Bennett)

Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me and you will...
Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me...

(Baby Talk)

(Verse 1)

Heart beating fast
Walking through the hallway
Just yesterday, we were waiting for you like all day
But you had different plans
Waited ‘til the sunrise
I barely had wiped that cold
From my eyes
When I got back to the room
And your mama said “It's time”
24 Hours Later
At the drop of a dime
Like that
Said a prayer
Grabbed ya mama’s hand
My queen
Bout to push our little princess to the land
First came your little head
Your body, then your feet
I swear
Your mama's the strongest woman you'll ever meet
An angel in disguise
An angel in my eyes
We both made you
Our little angel from the skies
You came out surprised
But then we heard your cries
Baby, welcome to the world
Our little baby girl
Just know you mean the world
And I’ma bring it for you
Wrote you a little song
And I had to sing it for you

(Chorus)

(Vocal Sample - Jamecia Bennett)

Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me and you will...
Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me...

(Unintelligible Baby Talk)

(Verse 2)

See, I got demons in my past
But my daughter's here today
If the prophecy's correct
I never want her to pay
For the sins of her father
Hope she never has to bother
Or never has to get caught up
With the spirits that may haunt her
From my generation
Break the curses
And we close the curtain
I hold you close to my heart
When Daddy knows you're hurting
This world's getting crazy, baby
See, I know the burden
But you'll always have me here
Want you to know for certain
In the flesh
And in the spirit when I'm gone
Hope you listen to the lyrics
Of this song
And when you learn to talk
Learn the lyrics
Sing along
And when you the learn to walk
Lead the people
Be strong
And if you got dreams, my seed
Then dream on
And let your light shine
Little lady, beam on
Our little bitty star
With real big hopes
Rewind this part
And please remember what I wrote
We need you

(Chorus)

(Vocal Sample - Jamecia Bennett)

Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me and you will...
Love me, you need me and you will never…
You need me...

(Baby Talk)

Track Name: Lookin' At the Stars
Chorus)

Lookin’ at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart


Lookin’ at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart

(Verse 1)

Need to get outta the cold
Need to get back on the road
Need to get back in my mode
I still remember the code
When it got hot on the stove
You know that I never told
You know that I never fold
Family is all that I know
I'm out doing these shows
You should be in the front row
But I know you resting in Heaven
And glowing while watching me grow
I gotta get out my goals
I gotta get to the gold
Gotta get outta my head
Gotta get outta this bed
And go see the globe
I'm out here breaking the bread
Making sure everyone's fed
Put that on my soul
Just so you know
They put them deals on the table
But promise you
I never sold
Low and behold
Bet you they say I'm a legend
When my final story is told
Glory bestowed upon me
They took me from gory
Back up to the gloriest roads, oh!

(Chorus)

Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin’ at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin’ at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart


Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin’ at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart

(Refrain)

‘Cuz you're out there
And we miss you
Yeah, we miss you
But you're out there
But you’re out there
Make a wish to
Make a wish to

(Verse 2)

What do they want from me?
What do they want from me?
I been doing this forever
And I'm only getting better
But what I am gonna be?
How they gon' remember me
When I'm dead and gone?
What do you want on your Tombstone
Singing songs
Is my tune wrong?
Somebody turn autotune on, so
To a T, you can feel that pain
You feel that reign?
Not the kind the falls
The kind that balls
On my crown, I'm king
Bow to the throne
Turn my house to a home
All my lady need is a ring
Fighting myself
But I still need my help
It goes down in the ring
Let the bell ring

(Refrain)

‘Cuz you're out there
And we miss you
Yeah, we miss you
But you're out there
Yeah, you're out there
Make a wish to
Make a wish to

(Chorus)

Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart


Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
Lookin' at the stars, at the stars, at the stars
I gave you my heart
Track Name: Open Mike
But still it feels like …

I’m always
Catching up with myself
The things we lost in the fire
That I left on the shelf
But still
Much is required
So that pressure is felt
But self care is imperative
When you pressing for wealth
Man, stop your comparisons
Y’all be stressing for help
But trying to compare with him
Just gon’ mess with yourself
I’ve seen it all
More than I care to reveal
I’m always sure to clear air for the real
That's why I'm aiming at they grill
Man, 'cuz this how I feel
Nobody being sincere
We need some changes for real
We in that same old place
Still hating in them same old ways
Like it’s ‘07 MySpace days
Like we still rocking tall tees with the stickers
Like we ain’t make plays
Or glo’d up in some major ways
They’d rather sit on social media
With things to say
That never lead to pay
Mama still say
We need to pray, hey
You know I am, Mama
Yeah. you know that I am, Mama
I’m still your little boy
But to them, I’m da man, Mama
I love my fans, but I do this for the fam
I got angels all around me
Just give the rapper a chance
Now the only thing left to do
Is stretch these bands
They can either
Bless these hands
Or catch these hands
Suicidal Thoughts
Almost made me X my plans
But I ain’t Ready To Die
Give me One More Chance
Life after death
It was all a dream for the revenue
Here’s a free gem
A diamond you may have never knew
You can take a few losses
And still never lose
Cuz when you put two L’s together
That's a W
It's all perspective in the end, though
I’m learning to be selective with my friends, though
‘Cuz they direction just might be a dead end
Once you choose to end that chapter
That’s where your story begins
My glory is far from over
Life is better when I’m sober
Was dropping 4’s in the soda
And wishing on 4 leaf clovers
And living all of my moments
Through reactions and reposting
Of emotions I was spilling
When off the pills and potions
My swimming pools turn to oceans
I just had to get refocused
Sorry, I ain't self destruct like you was hoping
This music is like magic
So I’m flowing hocus pocus
Life is like an Open Mic
So this is Mike being open
Y’all be joking
With ya cold Henny drinking
And parole violations
Got ‘you thinkin’ you some gangstas
I ain’t even got the patience
To patronize all you wastemen
I’m getting back to the basics
I’m looking at all your faces
I can tell the you complacent
You hiding behind a mask
Every thing that you been faced with
You Jim Carrey and Jason
We can always tell who faking
Take the mask off
See what the future holds
When I was young
I trying to be the Future Hov
That was past me
Now my present showing me
All my future goals
Here's some last words you should know
I'm not perfect, but I'm worth it
And my soul cannot be purchased
And I'm much more than you see upon the surface
Still searching for the better me
