Legacy

Verse 1

In a horrible position cleaning toilets for a living
This is not what I envisioned, this not what I was wishing
As a kid I dreamt I’d be balling, I’d be winning
But I’m falling like I’m finished, life is raw and unforgiving

Make methodical decisions just to get back on my feet
But I’m feeling trapped like I’ll never be released
But the mind that I carry is the weapon that I need
If I load it up with knowledge then it’s benefiting me

Escape normality, I hate formalities
I’m gonna succeed is a great mentality
I know I shouldn’t win, I go out on a limb
‘Cus this life is like a gamble, so I show it on my skin

Got it tatted on my wrist before this cancer did exist
Because I knew my future was a gamble and a risk
Like I had a premonition that was harrowing and vicious
Now this cancerous condition has me asking for remission

Will I ever get it? Will I ever see a cure?
Every day I’m always guessing but I guess I’m never sure
If I’m living and I’m laughing then I really can’t complain
If you listen to my rapping maybe you could feel the same

Appreciate the life you have, never ever waste a day
What I really hate to say is one day we will waste away
Completely disappear and literally just fade away
So leave behind a legacy for people to appreciate

Chorus x2

All I wanna do is leave behind a legacy
For the people to remember me
When I am gone will I be in your memory
As someone who would help you, physically and mentally

Verse 2

Dreams of being on stage, fans screaming out my name
They believe that I am great as I’m speaking, they’re amazed
And the speakers full of bass, got ‘em feeling very brave
Got ‘em knowing they can battle inner demons that are caged

How will I do this? Nobody knows me
They don’t hear my music or my poetry
I am just a cleaner on a minimum wage
It’s impossible to save, I’ve got lots of stuff to pay

But when I get some money, I spend it on recording
‘Cus my dream is so important, I can leave it to be dormant
I’ve gotta go and chase it even if I don’t make it
I’ve got nothing to lose but lots to be gaining

It’s unlikely that I’ll make but in life to be the greatest
You’ve gotta keep on going and fight the complications
You might just end up famous living in a penthouse
Me? I’m never giving up, I’ll never put the pen down

But money isn’t everything, the fame doesn’t matter
I wanna make an impact and be great as a rapper
I wanna be remembered as somebody who would help you
If you’re struggling and going through a troublesome adventure

Trust me, you will conquer everything you set your mind to
You listen to my lyrics then my spirit is inside you
Energy and confidence is what I will provide you
Now you are a warrior and nothing will define you

Chorus x2

All I wanna do is leave behind a legacy
For the people to remember me
When I am gone will I be in your memory
As someone who would help you, physically and mentally
