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!

(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

(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) (Sound Byte from delivery room)

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
