I am not a pattern that we follow
The pill that I'm on is a tough one to swallow
I'm not a criminal not a role model
Not a born leader I'm a tough act to follow
I am not the fortune and the fame
Or the same person telling you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
And found out the underbelly's sicker than it seems
And it seems ugly but it can get worse
Because even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
Because once you get a theory of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be like the first
And I'm not a robot. I'm not a monkey
I will not dance even if the beat's funky
Opposite of lazy, far from a punk
Stop talking and start trying to catch up motherfucker

And all the people say
Try and catch up motherfucker

Pac said money changes situation
Big said it increase the complication
Kane said don't step I ain't the one
Chuck said an uzi weighs a motherfucking tone
And I'm just a student of the game that they taught me
Rocking every stage and every place that they brought me
I'm awfully underrated but pay me to correct it
And so it ain't mistaken I'm gonna state it for record
I am the opposite of where I got this
A weak opposite, a slack sending them
A heat sending them
A crack closest to a peak
Far from a punk
Ya'll better start trying to catch up motherfucker

And all the people say
Try and catch up motherfucker

But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone
But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone
But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone

And all the people say
Try to catch up motherfucker
And all the people say
Try to catch up motherfucker
