Dedicate dedicate (one time, one two, one two)
This one right here, goes out, to my homie with the drink
Know what I mean (uh)

He said, I write what I see
Write to make it right, don't like what I be
I like to make it like the sights on TV
Quite the great life, so nice and easy
See, now you can still die from that
But it's better than not being alive from straps
Agreed, a Mead notebook and a Bic that click
When it's pushed, and a whack ass beat
That's a track thats weak that he got last week
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
'cause everybody in the stu' is like that's that heat
A bass-heavy medley with a sample from the 70's
With a screwed up hook that went (stack that cheese)
Somethin', somethin', somethin', (stack that cheese)
Mother, sister, cousin, (stack that cheese)
He couldn't think of nothin' (stack that cheese)
He turns down the beat, writer's block impedes
Cryin' from the next room a baby in need
Of some pampers, and some food, and a place to sleep
That, plus a black Cadillac on D's
Is what keeps him on track to be a great MC (yeah)

One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
Hip hop you saved me
One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but (it's what it is)
Hip hop you saved my life

Reps north side so he rocks them braids
1100 friends on his Myspace page
Stack that cheese got 700 plays
Producer made him take it down, said he had to pay
Open mic champ 2 weeks in a row
Ex D-boy with a B-Boy flow
Glow like LeRoy you should see boy go
Got a daddy servin' life, and a brother on the 'row
Best homie in the grave, tatted up while in the cage
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
MinuteMaid got his mamma workin like a slave
Downed baby mamma who he really had to honour
'cause she was his biggest fan even let him use her Honda
To drive up to Dallas, went to open up for amatuers
Let him keep her debit card so he could put gas in it
Told her when he get on he gonna take her to the galleria
Buy her everything but the mannequins (ya dig, dig, dig, dig)

One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but
Hip hop you saved me
One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but (but, but)
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
Hip hop you saved my life

His man called said your time might be now
They played your freestyle over wipe me down
They played it 2 times, said it might be crowned
As the best thing out the H-Town in a while
He picked up his son, with a great big smile
Rapped every single word to the new born child
Then he put him down and went back to the kitchen
And put on another beat and got back to the mission
To get his mamma out the hood, put her somewhere in the woods
Keep his lady lookin' good, have her rollin' like she should
Show his homies there's a way, other than that flippin' yay'
Bail his homie out of jail, put a lawyer on his case
Throw a concert for the school, show the soldiers that its cool
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
Throw some candy on the Caddy, chuck the deuce and act a fool
Man it feels good when it happens like that
2 days from goin' back to sellin' crack (yessir)

One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but
Hip hop you saved me
One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but
Hip hop you saved my life

One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
[rock, rap, hip-hop and R&B lyrics found on beckerist.com]
Grind I feel like murder but
Hip hop you saved me
One you never heard of I
Push it hard to further the
Grind I feel like murder but
Hip hop you saved my life (x4)
