Album: Talented 10th


Ali
I'm tryin to be great and I'm on my way
Way up way up way up
It's never too late and I'm on my way
I'mma leave my mark ready set go
Ready set go ready set go

Sho Baraka
Hello greatness I'm here to greet you/
False humility and doubt had me scared to meet you/
Fear had me I couldn't sleep I lay awake/
Felt like I had to put my dreams up on layaway/ (go!)
That's the thoughts of a kid living on welfare/
Section 8 monthly food stamps government healthcare/
Depressed hopin' the do'hood would suck less/
From our house we had a poor view of success/ (go!)
Let it be told all that glitters ain't gold/
Life is a slam dunk when you livin' with low goals/
Pick and roll with a number of great friends/
Some want you to be great but not greater than them/ (go!)
Never lust for the top, love it's a long fall/
Climbed the ladder of success on the wrong wall/
It's by working faith, it's the Lord's grace/
Mediocre is contagious, give me some space, space/

Ali
I'm tryin to be great and I'm on my way
Way up way up way up
I'm tryin to be great and I'm on my way
Way up way up way up (I'mma leave my mark ready set go)
Ready set...

Sho Baraka
Ha, I'm like hold up can I dream?/
Everybody's dreaming but not me/
Imago Dei His masterpiece is so vivid/
You know the architect homeboy we in the buildin'/
No ceiling prayers tear the roof off/
Talk to God via text you got a new call/
Fans will exalt ya haters wanna stone ya/
Man will always fail ya keep ya eyes on Jehovah/
I'm sayin' great I'm trying to push my brothers/
Talented tenth, that service for the good of others/
Some know a lot, say a lot with no application/
Success is mistress, his procrastination/ (go!)
Greatness is like Bach on the keys, Ali in the ring/
Like King havin' a dream/
Huh, It's like Mueller on his knees, Tolstoy with a pen/
A Messiah without sin/

Ali
Hello faith, goodbye doubt
I met greatness on my way out
Never give up never give up never give up
Hello faith, goodbye doubt
I met greatness on my way out
Never give up never give up never give up

I'm tryin to be great and I'm on my way
Way up way up way up
It's never too late and I found my way
I'mma leave my mark ready set go
Ready set go ready set go
