(Why won't you be real)

Be real with me (2x)
And don't lie to me
Just need you to keep it real with me

(Need you to be real)

Be real with me (5x)


Why u lie about them numbers, yea them numbers on my check?
Why u lie about them jewels in that chain around yo neck?
Why u lie about them fake Js, yea them fake Js that u got on?
Why u lie about that tour, u know the one u said that u was on?
Mechanic under my hood
Messin round w/ my wheels,
Creatin way more problems
Then gon say he givin me a deal
And the doctor don't make no bread
Unless his patients stay ill
So instead of curing yo sickness
He gon just give u this pill

Man college tuition
Is way too expensive
Why I gotta be in debt
Just to validate my intelligence?

And writers all in my face man
Talkin bout "Lets get placements!"
Sittin on my beats like a couch
In they momma's basement

And management look at me like I'm crazy
When I asked them for an application
Ain't nothin but white folks workin here
But naw, that don't make u a racist

I can't take it
All the fakeness
See cuz honestly, I just need a break from this
I'm say just how I feel man
So why won't u just be real man?



Yea big shouts out to Joe Langford
Cuz I really appreciate yo efforts
When everybody else tried to shut my mouth
U gave a brotha a chance to speak out
Never forget wat Seats told me
I aint never gon let none of these _____ own me
No I don't want yo help cuz u phoney
Why integrity seem so dang lonely?

And now what's that I smell?
Brand nu females?
Where was ya all at when I was workin retail?
A _____ look good since he been on TV
Got all the women sayin TGIP
Got all the homies tryna link up with me
Cuz the mixtape is BLAZIN all these streets
Man...notoriety's senseless
Don't really mean a thing
Trust me I'm a witness
Peep this

Don't believe the hype, it aint worth it
Cuz with fame there aint much u can purchase
Yea the tabloids aware of your whereabouts
But u still sharing a room at yo mommas house,
Or ur managers house,
Or ur agents house
Can't even afford to purchase that blouse
Can't afford a burger at In & Out
Don't act like y'all don't kno what I'm talkin bout

And now that my eyes is open
Aint got no choice but to be outspoken
I see that this game is just one big joke man
Ain't nobody breathing just a bunch of chokin
And no, I don't want no deal man
My team got plenty of skill man
Let me make this oh so clear man
We gon always keep it real man
