Underrated

Verse 1

This isn't me tryna burst a bubble and me tryna elevate my position in concrete jungles
I find that I hesitate when they ask me about my struggles
Clowning position important aspects
I'm tryna juggle like why am I doing this?
I go at it day to day
I'm finding some bullshit promoters cause they refuse to pay
I tend to get stuck in the book when niggas be turning my page
Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was the level to chase
What a waste
Do you remember why you got it in music?
Was it for the people or popular status or do you refuse it?
Do you remember the hunger, the struggle, the come up?
The need for your number to be called?
Cause you ain't got no back up
Tryna unlock the game for change, baby I got the keys
Stand in the office, grub rapping giving you nothing to eat
Don't want to be an extra person your sister has to feed
Not tryna be an extra burden tryna put struggles at ease

Chorus

Do you wanna live like the rich and famous?
But no one will call you the greatest?
Do you wanna live like the rich and famous?
But no one will call you the greatest
No legacy left cause you're grave dead
Or rather be viewed underrated?

Verse 2

Got a dream to just to live past finer things
But Jesus said its gonna be a battle
But what meaning every asshole tryna give me hella hassle
Your movement will cause a stir
Still-still-still-still you got to soldier on and stick to your guns
And hope that you get it
Call it underrated but still highly favoured by the greatest
No debate it but no accolades on the work that you making
No limitations on the bullshit, your fragrance
But now you tempted to dumb it down just to get a location
I'm tryna meet the world and make me her master
But she ain't about to listen, you got nothing to offer
Killing the myth that you can never make it with the real rap and the boom bap
Think way back before Jay, before Yay, before trap
Pat on the back from the idols
Forget the kids who know you scripting the Bible
It's a cycle, suicidal for the title
For the greatest, for the praises
Cause status is nothing to rant and rave before the love music
Rather be underrated

Chorus

Do you wanna live like the rich and famous?
But no one will call you the greatest?
Do you wanna live like the rich and famous?
But no one will call you the greatest
No legacy left cause you're grave dead
Or rather be viewed underrated?

Outro

You gotta know who you are no lie
Do you wanna live like the rich and famous?
But no one will call you the greatest?
No legacy left cause you're grave dead
Or rather be viewed underrated?
