08 One More Time (Produced by Essential Music Alliance)

I just want to take this time to thank you. Whoever is listening. I dedicate this tape to you as my commitment to always grind...

One more time is all it takes. / One more time is all it took. / Back when I was reading all these books / Trynna raise my GPA, but I was more concerned with hooks. / Listening to my favorite MCs, dreaming one day they'll notice me. / One day they'll notice us, this city that raised me. / The city I been in since I was a baby. / Wanted to get out if I'm being really honest / The plan was to come back to the hood, renovate these houses. / See they ain't gonna push my people out / flood the money into mlk, there ain't gonna be no drought / make west side the new suburb / raise the playing field I prefer / they'll get to shouting at LOV / won't get to Shannon's till after 3 / ooooh Pastor be preaching / ooooh the devil be reaching / in my ear saying "you won't make it" / he don't want y'all getting the checks imma pay you / but don't worry God got me, I already know He got you / all we got it do is give it... 

One more time for the daddies in the house / one more time for the mommas with the crown / one more time for the brothers never killing over colors / bloods and crips we can still unite, rebuild the hood in just one night / nortenos y sorenos taking back el barrio / no more blood money, no more sicario / understand I done seen all that / Moses to my people, lead them out we go come back / it's like that Y'all / and I really don't care about it at all / you could say I'm conscious / I prefer to call it honest / see I just love my people / we been through it all / and see we ain't never fall / we just took your money and what we do? We ball. / Wanted what you had, and trust this, we got that / but we still went to do more / we still went to teach more / we still went to build more / I'm not just talking Morehouse, I'm not just talking prairie view /I'm talking me and you / We all thought we had to give our lives. / but in the end, all we did was give it...
