April twenty-five he arrived.
A whole month early man I’m glad that I survived.
Didn’t think that I would see my son alive.
Nothing but God,
screaming thankful as I cried.
Everything I once had felt is numb.
Everybody saying that the things you do are dumb.
Remembering when I was eighteen.
Money, Cash, Hoes;
I was living big dreams.
You really gotta give a boy a chance to grow some.
All these ****** taking like they know something these days.
They be acting woke but they broke.
I respect the world, but you all tripping these days.
Actions and scenarios got me surprised.
To tell you what you should do, who the hell am I?
I hear they acting up, I wonder why.
Won’t trip, listen good as write all my replies.
Sit down old men, let me talk wit ya.
Like Cole I’m tryna paint for you the bigger picture.
Congrats because you got a new grandson.
All the ladies saying he is handsome.
I see your brew is cold and the pack gone.
I got some good advice; you should quit pourin’.
Cuz that’s the way to prosper in this father game.
I’m tryna be respectful, put you on game.
I hear your words and I know perspectives change.
A lot of people say that that’s a bad thing.
The month of May, so things are getting hot now.
Being wild and free is the **** that’s hot now.
Me and Young been on the rise with a new wave.
But never mind that, that’s just a Segway.
I must say, I’m unimpressed with the things you say.
But love to see a black man get raised.
And plus you’re feeling proud and I respect that.
But really have you ever thought about your impact.
J Cole gave me sight, I made it big enough.
Ima teach him why it’s hard because his skin’s black.
Don’t wanna see you mad.
I really wanna see you chill.
Just thinking bout new life, it’s giving me a thrill.
But deep down somewhere **** it, I need to keep it real.
I wish I knew your thoughts and exactly how you feel.
When your kids grow up, you should be growing up too.
Not dismissing the fact that this chapter’s brand new.
You thinking bout your life while drinking I don’t blame you but you not thinking bout the people looking up to me and you.
I can only assume with clues.
That you got better **** to do.
You should’ve bought a house with all that money that you blew.
I know that you don’t think about the things that you be doing but your nephew looking up to you, I’m telling you it’s true.
One day these little babies they gon grow up.
And get a custom to your ways and your load up.
Now your house is looking dead cuz they don’t show up.
Which unfortunately means them kids done grown up.
Now you run around asking them what’s happening.
But you forgot that they grew up and saw how life could end.
Now you got the blues.
And you going through regrets because you could’ve did better on your revenues.
Now you got no jewels.
And you old news.
And a bunch of fake friends but I don’t judge you.
I’m just telling you it’s probably gonna happen in some seconds, let’s the kids eat the breakfast cuz,
it’s bigger better ways to The Top.
I really do wish you good luck.
And hoping for your sake that you ain’t dumb as you look.
But, if it’s really true what y’all be saying and y’all call yourselves talkin behind back then I promise that your ******.
I’ll be around forever.
Father skills on tip top.
If you wanna get schooled,
Or wanna get popped.
Just remember what I said before my writers block.
And if not, everyone gon have some tear drops..
