Biography

I started making music after a hard breakup with a girlfriend and I guess I just needed to tell the world what I was going through. I planned to write this really dark song about being mad at the world, ... but it somehow turned out to be very bright and inspirational. It was cool in a way because, without the breakup, I wouldn't have written my first dope song. That's what inspired the name of it: Sunshine Out The Rain. Eventually, I got back on the ground and felt great about getting through the hard times. Now, in life 1, I'm G, a thoughtful, reflective, a little overly sensitive artist type. In life 2, I'm G the rapper, big headphones, can't keep a good man down, dance machine, blaring into the mic, living the dream. Hence my rapper name G2. Overcoming life's challenges has lead me to feel like there is nothing I can't do, which inspired the lyrics to my first single, Top Of The World: "Standing on top of the world, living life and loving it! The whole world I want all of it!" Thanks and much love to all of you!

Lyrics

Sunshine Out The Rain

Written By: G2

I'm trying to look for brighter days when I'm blind in darkness
and love comes along at times when I'm feeling heartless
And when I'm crying lord
Man I'm feeling better
and when I'm trying hard
man its hard to let her go
tears be wetter though
nobody loves her better though
how am I supposed to let her go
if its
forever though
I know its hard
to unwind from the pain
ain't trying to run a mind game
but sunshine
comes out the rain

See there's good days and bad days
hood days and sad days
would'a should'a could'a had days
I know its hard
to unwind from the pain
ain't trying to run a mind game
but sunshine
comes out the rain

You know I'm about to
make
it
shine
can't be afraid
got to stay
on
my
grind
la da da da da da da
and haters want to
see
me
die
time to let them straight feel the wrath
and let them
know
that
I
will
rain
on the best of them

So when you're locked up
most of the times you're getting out
and when you feel
bad shit
it feels good to let it out
and when somebody is dead and gone
man they're gone forever
but then the
family
ain't fighting
when they're together
pain and anger tell the story about how deep the hurt is
and when its the worst is
when they're in the churches
and when there's murder
people know how it is
because it made the papers
and now they care about the kids
and to be honest
its a shame
that a token conscience
only comes' out the
tragedy
of broken promise
I know its hard
to unwind
from the pain
ain't trying to run a mind game
but sunshine
comes out the rain

See there's good days and bad days
hood days and sad days
would'a should'a could'a had days
I know its hard
to unwind from the pain
ain't trying to run a mind game
but sunshine
comes out the rain

See there's good days and bad days
hood days and sad days
would'a should'a could'a had days
I know its hard
to unwind from the pain
ain't trying to run a mind game
but sunshine
comes out the rain

You know I'm about to
make
it
shine
can't be afraid
got to stay
on
my
grind
la da da da da da da
and haters want to
see
me
die
time to let them straight feel the wrath
and let them
know
that
I
will
rain
on the best of them

Fighting in relationships
lets you know its working
because when they get mad
then you know the whole person
you break up
to makeup
and when you're hurting
bitterness
and hurt feelings
they lead to soul searching
learning through love and loss
will give you self-knowledge
like a mama
when she sends her son off to college
it takes a hurricane
and the homes that people live in
to be taken
for the world to be givin'
it takes tragedy
to resurrect the man in me
from the good days
and the bad days
that life's handing me

(talking)
see that's what its all about
its just about . . .
trying to find the lightness
even in the darkness
that's what you got to do
you got to keep your head up
you know what I'm saying?
Alright then

You know I'm about to
make
it shine
can't be afraid
go to stay
on
my grind
la da da da da da da
and haters want to
see
me
die
time to let them straight feel the wrath
and let them
know
that
I
will
rain
on the best of them

Top Of The World

Written By: G2

Standing on top of the world
with my hands to the sky
trying to stay fly
running the game and I ain't even gotta try
standing on top of the world
living life and loving it
the whole world I want all of it
standing on top of the world
on top of the world

Been a big dog since I was a little kid
fit to be the biggest big shot
in a little bit
about to make it real big like big real
man since birth I was kind of like a big deal
kids on the block trying to do fun things
though I told Santa Clause that I want to run
things
re-invent the game from the top to the bottom
chart topping hot dropping collar popping still got 'em
got an attitude and I call it confidence
money minded and I call it common sense
I've been told that I got a chip on my shoulder
but I don't give a (edit)
I just want to take over
over take big show things
I kind of like to control things and dominate the whole things
just keep keep keeping on non stop
be the best no less
standing on top

Standing on top of the world
with my hands to the sky
trying to stay fly
running the game and I ain't even gotta try
standing on top of the world
living life and loving it
the whole world I want all of it
standing on top of the world
on top of the world

Yeah because I is what you ain't
I'm on in my zone put a thiz in my tank
I'm grown to the throne and I live for the rank
because I'm trying to make a change so take that to the bank
Ha! Yeah! And I'm headed for the top now.
Everybody's on me so get ready to get shot down
I'm all about this money and I'm trying to get it right now
You better give me spaces when you see me taking flight out
Yeah because I'm so out of this world
And if you don't cuff her tight then I'm out with your girl
I'm on that all night hype
in my all white nikes'
And I keep killer beats
And I ball like Mike
I know what's up yup
even when I'm looking down
I got that bird style flow with the crooked sound
I see stars over clouds when I look around
I saw the throne for the taking when I took
the crown

Standing on top of the world
with my hands to the sky
trying to stay fly
running the game and I ain't even gotta try
standing on top of the world
living life and loving it
the whole world I want all of it
standing on top of the world
on top of the world

So let me tell you a little something in closing
standing on top golden because I was chosen
it was a fate thing born to be a great thing
the best no less no points for second place thing
see there's your way and then there's the hot way
sitting on your bottom or the standing on top way
I'm in this game to be the best and the latest greatest
world famous head liner on the front pages
so make way for the big man
making big plans standing on top taking big stands
see this the real thing just the way I feel thing
standing on top sounds like a record deal thing
hot now like 4 5 6 shot now
be the best no less standing on top now
standing on top and that's whats happening
wanna see me? see me on the magazine

Standing on top of the world
with my hands to the sky
trying to stay fly
running the game and I ain't even gotta try
standing on top of the world
living life and loving it
the whole world I want all of it
standing on top of the world
on top of the world
