lyrics

VERSE ONE
The grind's in my vein's/ eyes on the dollar, so I'll never change/ I'll never fold unless it's a bill/ All I'm tryna do is give it to you more real/ Little more vivid, little more ill/ They're telling me I won't but I bet a brotha will/ I'm tellin' em to chill, 'cause they'll never listen/ They ain't never seen no kind of parts to my vision/ Beautiful Music, please don't confuse it/ Living in this world, it's so easy for you to lose it/ So you see me turnt up, adjust my accoustics/ Brim low, kicks clean, show 'em how to do this/ You know seeing is believing/ And all my life, I've been dreaming/ Rise and shine, it's time to grind/ Ready to take what's mine/ And I don't waste no time 'cause

CHORUS
I came from the bottom, and now I'm working my way up, up, up, up/
This is hard work, dedicated, I ain't never did it by luck, luck, luck, luck/
And if I'm gone make it, you gone make it, we gone make it too - in due time/ Let your light shine - illuminate/ Let your light shine - illuminate/Illuminate (4X)

VERSE TWO
Even though it won't fit inside my coffin when I die and go to heaven/ I'ma ball hard like Lebron without a question/ And I got the answer - AI/ Better believe you'll feel it in your soul, like De La/ Play by the Stakes High, it's Vé ya'll/ Well dressed, stay fly/ A year ago: wasn't even on people's radar/ Now I'm Zack Morris and it's lookin' like Bayside/ Big budget rappers starting to look like A Rod/ All black when I roll through - funeral, killin the game, just the usual/ Day in the life/ This is food for thought, you may need a steak knife/ This is rare what I'm giving you

CHORUS
I came from the bottom, and now I'm working my way up, up, up, up/
This is hard work, dedicated, I ain't never did it by luck, luck, luck, luck/
And if I'm gone make it, you gone make it, we gone make it too - in due time/ Let your light shine - illuminate/ Let your light shine - illuminate/Illuminate (4X)

VERSE THREE
Mo' fire, mo' venom/ No mercy in this game, see me so driven/ I'ma hold it down on 'em til my soul liftin/ I see food on the plate, I'ma go get em/ And one time for the underdogs - I'm so over these cats, they don't want it all/ They don't wanna win/ They don't wanna ball/ But I know one thing: I ain't gonna fall - not never/ Day in and day, I'ma find a way out/ I'ma mastermind and I got this thing laid out/ Superman in the booth, I don't need a cape out/ Rock from the beginning til it fades out/ Folk be like 70's babies when the Playstation came out - quitting the game and they stayed out/ Never will I stop, never will I quit/ Remember where I came from and never forget

CHORUS
I came from the bottom, and now I'm working my way up, up, up, up/
This is hard work, dedicated, I ain't never did it by luck, luck, luck, luck/
And if I'm gone make it, you gone make it, we gone make it too - in due time/ Let your light shine - illuminate/ Let your light shine - illuminate/Illuminate (4X)
