Yeah…
It’s your boy J. Are man…
This one goes out to the real people
Them real ones in my life…
Okay…
I don’t know maybe you could relate…
So Ima take you way back…
Back before the journey man…
Show you who I’m talking bout…
Take this ride with me…
Let’s go…

Born in Jamaica
Raised in Kingston
Where og’s be gettin it
And them yungins
Be raising big guns…
Type of lifestyle
We lived inside the garrison
Ain’t no comparison
Stay finding bodies in barrels son…
So embarrassing
To be hungry for days
See mama crying for pay
As she sweat over pales
Tryna make it through the day
Just to put food on our plates
It’s not a beautiful state
I swear to god
I’m might lose it today…

Change up
Up in New York
Different place
Different pace
Still suffering wasn’t a new sport
Had to speed up my mind
Before I lose thought
And get my ass on the grind
Before I drew short
Makin moves north
Linkin up with homies and cronies
I knew since high school
The right dudes
To help me get on my twos
Fought…
Through all the shit
Hustling everyday
To say look nigga
What paying my fucking dues bought…

But I knew nought
That all that shit is just a phase
Til them boys in them suits
And them blues caught
Up to me
Cuz man eventually
All that shit you see on tv
Isn’t really what it appears to be
But with reality
Being so unscrupulous
I had to shoot for bust
Do it for my family
And beat it
Til them shooters rust…
Cuz ain’t nobody here
Gon do for us
So it’s winning
And nothing less
There ain’t no lose to us…

I do it for
Hugh
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
(If I shine, You shine)
(Do the crime, Not time)
(On that grind, Til we fine)
Yeah for you…
Hugh…
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
And that’s the way how I feel
Cuz all I see now is fake
Can’t lose my grip on what’s real…

And this is real and it kills
Sometime I wonder
How my mama used to pay them bills…
With no daddy around
Shit nobody around
I put my head on the ground
Screaming loud
But really there ain’t no sound…
I pray to god for a sunny day
Cuz I swear my mama tears
This world could wash away…
I wonder why she never runaway
And I ain’t talkin in a funny way
But if I pick up this gun up
I’m sure I’m robbing someone today…

Man…
If she knew what I was doing
Saw me in them streets
Her image of me would be ruined
I know she wants what’s best for me
But it ain’t easy see
Her hiding her emotions
Switching her pillow cases every morning…
Her eyes swollen
As if she’s mourning
But she told me never give up
Keep my head up
And focus on what’s important…
But how could I not
When I’m feeling helpless
God help me
Before I start kicking doors in…

It’s been a trip, shit
But you never flipped
Our past written
Could of hit a couple mil on script…
I remember when bud fell out
Not even a tear fell out
Searching for niggas whereabouts
Dying to fuckin air them out…
But you hold me and told me
That I should focus on my goals
Don’t let the devil control me…
And even with your
Roller-coaster emotions
You raised five kids
All by your lonesome
That’s why…

I do it for
Hugh…
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
(You the best and you’re mine)
(Mama your love is refine)
(Give you the world)
(Still I’m trying)
Yeah for you…
Hugh…
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
And that’s the way how I feel
All I see now is fake
Can’t lose my grip on what’s real…

And you…
You were throughout the storm too
Kept me warm, felt the love
Throughout your arms too…
When these streets
Were too much for me to take
You held me down
I swear you hiding a cape
You never lost your faith…
Never tripped on how much
I used to accumulate
You was never fake
Guess it was fate
For me to meet you when I did
Cuz if I didn’t
Maybe by now
I would’ve already
Passed the pearly gates…

Remember when tony got shot
I had to rush the block
Poppin shots
At fuck niggaz
Trying to off they tops…
But it got hot with cops
Then you pulled up on spot
Peeped it all
Then came over girl
And locked my glock…
I remember when I wrote my first rap
You heard it and clapped
Then put my head up in your lap
And said do it baby
Don’t let you nothing you hold back
Now I’m doing it
Headed to the top
Girl ain’t no looking back
Cuz…

I do it for
Hugh…
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
(I gotta make you my bride)
(For you forever I’ll ride)
(Do it all for your smile)
Yeah for you…
Hugh…
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
And you
Hugh…
And that’s the way how I feel
All I see now is fake
Can’t lose my grip on what’s real…
