So you tell me who the kids are looking up to
Chee, Superman chip, listen

See they say that I'm a role model
But I didn't ask to be
You don't know what it's like
Going college everyday in my hood

When I know men are after me
They wanna see me fall 'cause I'm on TV
And all the little kids wanna be like me
So I guess, I'm a role model
So I guess, I'm a role model, listen

Balls in the sutin' in the morn ain't me
Human nature I grab what I see
In fear of your life you'll grab what's insight
And swing from the left to the right, a light

Listen, me, I'm just like you
My shit does stink, I'm human too
So why should I make a man violate me
If you don't ever make a man violate you?

See it's more then a catch 22
Yeah, I'm in the limelight but what can I do?
If they choose to shut me out they will
And so solid crew be the damn living proof

See they need to promote, they promoted violence
But did not provoke cry or broken silence
But that's just the life of an artist
The spotlight makes you a target

See they say that I'm a role model
But I didn't ask to be
You don't know what it's like
Going college everyday in my hood

When I know men are after me
They wanna see me fall 'cause I'm on TV
And all the little kids wanna be like me
So I guess, I'm a role model
So I guess, I'm a role model, check it, listen

I'm proof you ain't gotta be a nerd to get A's
Proof you ain't gotta be a shark to get paid
Comin' up I had some doors closed in my face
But the road to success made me a lane

Gave me a way just me and my team
Kept seein' red but I move like it's green
I couldn't find money but I'd find home
Chasin' the dream with a blind fold

Tryna find money with my eyes closed
Well, I might as well have been
Tryna get to heaven but it feels like hell I'm in
And Gucci's got me blowin' my doe

'Cause I just spend money whenever I feel low
I feel like my minds in a mosh pit
But that's just the life of an artist
See the spotlight made me a target

See they say that I'm a role model
But I didn't ask to be
You don't know what it's like
Goin' college everyday in my hood

When I know men are after me
They wanna see me fall 'cause I'm on TV
And all the little kids wanna be like me
So I guess, I'm a role model
So I guess, I'm a role model, cee's up, listen

Growin' up with you where there's more hate then love
I was lookin' up to men that made money off of drugs
Being surrounded by chicks in a club
Like who the hell said money can't but love?

And school is where the attitude starts
More city learners are relevant outta class
Teach the kids to get A's and shit
But don't tell a man to get mortgages

Societies designed to contain us in
But I know just what I'd be here for
'Cause I give them everything but they still want more
And 2Pac crew when they die they care more

But I ain't tryna die to sell
But i ain't tryna ask for help
That's just the life of an artist
Spotlight made me a target

See they say that I'm a role model
But I didn't ask to be
You don;t know what it's like
Going college everyday in my hood

When I know men are after me
They wanna see me fall 'cause I'm on TV
And all the little kids wanna be like me
So I guess, I'm a role model
So I guess, I'm a role model

See what people fail to understand
Is that when you're an artist
Even if you're in the right, you're in the wrong
You can't win

Lemme get some A's they won't put that in the paper
But let me go mad and do a total madness
Probably even get the front page, aging to see me fall
It won't happen, I got some awards on me now
