Album on hold, whole word on hold
The crowd is like "ho!", operator's like "hold"
Man, now ain't that cold?
I'm just trying to talk to my homie, that's up in the hole
Homegirl ain't trying to be a hoe, even though she on a pole
Can she get a second chance? NO!
Whoa! Like the opposite of gold
That's how it's supposed to be: a butterfly
For the sake of rhyming let's just say "butterflyee"
The truth stings like Muhammad Ali
I tell 'em tell 'em don't homicide me
I just a little old hope with his back against the ropes
Fighting for his fans and, fighting for his folks
But the boo's from the crowd they become so loud
If I could block em out then, I could knock em out then
Dance around the ring, but until then I'll say

I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there

"Doctor doctor please! The fame ain't painless enough"
That's cause you ain't famous enough
You got a little game, but your name ain't ringing enough
He said "take 2 of these and put change in my cup"
I said I wasn't poor, he gave me some more
Prescribed me a publicist and pointed me to the door
"Out!" Ouch.. I'm telling you this all from a therapist's couch
"Tell me about your mother? What she's all about?"
Prescribed me an interview and then told me to bounce
Damn..geez. The world is so cold, I'm glad I bought these skis
Went right off of the bunny slopes and right into the trees
Went unconscious, they rushed me to a concert
Instead of green jello they made me chicken soup
They fed me magazine covers and video shoots

I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there

And when I finally make it, I'mma stunt so hard
Evil as Knievel, I'mma jump so far
Way up in the atmosphere, I ain't coming back
Be a jerk to these jerks, yeah that'll make em hurt
Huh? Instead of young boy in the mirror
A young version of me, so I started to tear up
He said "you need to cheer up, your mind need to clear up
You're already here, just be yourself from here up"
Then he disappeared and I felt something familiar
Something I was taught, something I had lost
If you are afraid, the fear that you gon' change some
All you gotta do is just remember where you came from

I'mma keep it cool, and I'mma do me
It is what it is and that's how it's gon' be
Until I get there
Until I get there
And yeah I got flaws, I know I'm not perfect
But all ups and downs, will soon be worth it
When I get there
When I get there
