Written By: Radamiz

[Verse 1: Radamiz]
I'm gettin' rings upon rings upon rings upon rings upon rings
Olympic wins for la familia
My mother was busy duckin' bullets, how I'm scared of 'ya?
Your feelings ain't familiar, riches for my relatives
Sumner Projects stardom, seeing roaches while I'm penning this
This just self belief, why you sensitive?
You made him cry, you changed his life, oh that's what Heaven is
Mhm, got rats on my kitchen floor, debt got me in figure four's
My pops said "just fuck it all
You on a victory route, don't give a shit about doubt", I'm on it
I used to get heated getting played like a bench warmer
Told Joey we all Brooklyn kids living our dreams so
Fuck beef, it ain't for self, it's about self esteem
I chase the feeling, not the imagery
I chase the Hennessy with synergy
Sit down fool, prepared for my cheering like its chivalry
Sing like Gil Scott, dammit New York Is Killing Me
But look how the pain's building me

[Hook: Radamiz]
I been stacking every penny
Still got Jesus by the dresser
I feel holy, i feel holy
Level headed through the pressure
In the projects smokin bogies
Thinking how the world can know me
I been

I been stackin every penny
Still got Jesus by the dresser
I feel holy, i feel holy
Talk to junkies every morning
EBT just got me ballin
I been I been I been focused, I been

[Verse 2: Radamiz]
Testin' my endurance, no resting for the purest
Have I heard of you? No
Fuck Progressive Insurance how I murder the flow
Hack into the 1%, I'm just learning the code
I'm earning, they're learning to cope, Deserving
What A Time To Be Alive
Pete played me and Dre after Drake's "30 for 30" then I cried
It was in this same room that I wrote my first
Happiness is really priceless once you know you're worth
The only one, ain't lonely cause I know me son
I ain't bout to forfeit like Kobe's num, I'm Obi Wan
Your sentiments December once salary skyrocketed?
Instead of giving your enemies energy try dodgin' em
At Epic getting twisted off house liquor, your mouth slithers
I can win the war in some house slippers, you feel me?
Run the corporate: ain't no losses when you're focused for the realest
Fuck your offers, in The Office puttin' work in till you feel this
In my zone tonight, been sleeping on myself too long tonight
Follow my own advice, you just don't know my life
I got poltergeists, fuck the coppers lights, in my rolodex I'm just rolling dice
I'm just gambling for my sanity, treat my Grammy speech like an open mic
I'm just with it, termination on sight, trigger happy
I'd be depressed if I don't take my shot, so get to clappin'
Don't you be stressed: you cannot take my spot
Took more than a minute, got more ambition than your whole crew got
Dear Lord

[Hook]
I been stacking every penny
Still got Jesus by the dresser
I feel holy, i feel holy
Level headed through the pressure
In the projects smokin bogies
Thinking how the world can know me
I been

I been stackin every penny
Still got Jesus by the dresser
I feel holy, i feel holy
Talk to junkies every morning
EBT just got me ballin
I been I been I been focused, I been

[Outro: Radamiz]
It took a long damn time to feel important
So how the fuck you ruining my vibe right now?
You can hear it in my voice that I'm a soldier
And your non-believing ass who I don't like right now
Oh you wanna know? you wanna know how I did it?
Oh you wanna know? I just I just know my vision
Oh you down to die? How bout you live?
How bout you take? How bout you give?
You down to ride?
