Originally written as a standalone record during one of what Fresh recalls: “His lowest point” ended up in the hands of Collins and he enjoyed the record so much he sent the record back to Fresh with a verse on it.
When everyone's the same you have a different objective/ chose my friends wisely I'm very selective/
Disrespected by those i once shared my collective/ cosigns without my signature getting rejected/ we rivals now passes intercepted/ ...
We on the same field/ playing two different games/ drawing inspiration that wouldn't get framed/ while the trophies gained are engraved in my name/ I'm willing to share the success, but envy is a part of the game/ what a shame.
I wrote this song at four in the morning/ wide awake while you cats is in your bed snoring/ they saying nobody works as hard as me/ I'd have to agree/ been consistent since 2003/ back when nobody locally had ever pressed up a cd/ damn...
Contemplating on the next plot/ while you out partying scheming on these young thots/ I'm collecting my thoughts ....
I'll admit this isn't the life I had pictured for me/ not exactly the way I viewed my life at the age of 30/ momma told me your time comin' don't retire the jersey / kids who haven't done half as much get a shot who don't deserve it/
Like a proud father watching his child walking/ bunch of clones living on my offspring/ imagine where it would be if I hadn't of done it/ so many names you know // wouldn't have gone public/ it's not a shot, facts only// the truth is embedded/ I still laugh when they say I never helped them / when their biggest hits have my name in the record/
Without my symbol it wouldn't be official/ this shit foul throw the flag somebody blow a whistle/ I swear this is the last time I bring up this issue/ just don't call it yours if you didn't contribute/
A friendly reminder it's just business/
Some people don't belong anywhere near it/ real shit...
