I just wanna thank y'all for takin' the time to listen
I appreciate that

Yo, regular TV to cable from bouncin' label to label
Just tryin' to get the horse outta the stable
Was once part of a dynasty, well, least I was tryin' to be
Think it was the time in my life when I was findin' me

Sittin' in the spot with the dimes
Willin' to do anything just to be a Bad Boy at the time
Then I rolled the dices, nah, the money didn't add up
But just that whole experience, it was priceless

No free rides to the bank
On top of that was the untimely demise of Frank B.I.
Then the 'No Way Out' tour, we was smokin' outdoor
Made eighty stacks off Cee-Lo that without tour

Videotaped it all, I still watch it now
I traveled the world, learned how to rock a crowd
It ain't much but it beats poor things that I've been through
Is all I can speak for

I can only speak for the things that I've been through
I can only speak for the things that I've been through

Now I'm on Ruff Ryder, Interscope
Same shit partnership, joint venture fifty, fifty, same split
Jimmy put the money up, two singles off of 'We Are The Streets'
Then after that seemed like he was done with us but it wasn't over yet

Styles had a plan from the jump
Which was to come out with my solo
Next thing's a little better
These the niggas that I been doin' it wit forever
Next, so I'm like whatever

The first album dropped, promotion was hella
Every stage I rocked, the performance was stella
Had the whole world ready to ride or die for me
And I wasn't platinum, I was just side money

X was bringin' in the moollah
I was in the hood in the kitchen wit the digital ruler
I can't tell you 'bout the evil men do
I can only speak for the things that I've been through

I can only speak for the things that I've been through
I can only speak for the things that I've been through

As far as the LOX, we all fine, cellar is all wine
Selfish for me to say Rocfella is all mine
'Cause it ain't , I'm just a another employee that's on line
Tryin' to get my act together and do it one more time

Twenty one guns salute with all nines
And I know it's on me to make sure that we all shine
Gotta fall back, let the weed contact your mind
Confined bullshit in any contract you sign

But if you from the streets though, it's plenty of loop holes to eat yo'
Once they let you in you're supposed to keep doe
But I can't give you the formula, I'm on it though
Expect the worst, the outcome is enormous, though

Stay humble, still keep your heat for insurance though
Things that I been through to get it weren't normal yo'
Yeah, this is what my heart beats for
Things that I've been through is all that I can speak for

I can only speak for the things that I've been through
I can only speak for the things that I've been through
