lyrics

i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2


art reflects life - life reflects art - that's a little bit of wisdom i'ma use it as i start - to spark up the convo. - it's wild like the congo - how i maintain and roll to the same beat - day to day like the bongos - then i be buggin' like gonzo - i gotta get it right like pronto - as if there's no tomorrow im'a borrow some help - from Allah - cause without 'em to be honest i can't do it myself rely on nobody else - snakes be slitherin' sinfully tryin' to orchestrate'cha fate and sabotage your synchronized symphony - since it's left up to me when it's all said and done i pace myself gracefully and give praise - to the one - enjoy the little fun i have until i raise a son - or a daughter - life gets harder the road has just begun - but i'm fresh off the path from the past - with madd forks and traps - so i know how to roll - i won't collapse.

i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2

ain't noone stoppin' me but myself - and that ain't happenin' - i'm back again fly like stealth - so what's crackalin' - resilience and brilliance has me surpassin' them buildin' with real than life cats i get cash with them - but that's a chosen few - now that's a golden rule - i demand respect man ya balance is overdue - i learned from older dudes overtime i had to show and prove now i possess enough power to make (boulders move) listen to what they say the code is true - the same girl who wouldn't flirt - she starts taking notice in you - she's hopin' that you can make her life right she wants to shine bright like them city lights but that's bogus and rude - let her stay in the shade - where it's calm and cool - you'll be floatin' across the ocean - makin' power moves - i'll be coastin' across the continent while all you cowards lose - see i try to keep it peace so don't make me devour you.

i do what i do cause i am who i am - who the phuck are you to tell me what to do with my land - i came up out of chaos and i've mastered my plans - i built this right here - with my own two hands x 2

about

Raw Proof Nashville, Tennessee

Raw Proof has emerged from the flames as a man in the world but not of it, a Hip-Hop historian who lives in the community but claims no clique. He congregates with preachers, politicians, and the poverty-stricken, while always speaking for, not at, the common man. ... more
