about

We all suffer in some way.
Here I give you a glimpse of my deepest struggles.
You can hate, or you can show love. You choose!
Either way, don't be ordinary - be extraordinary.

lyrics

I am not ordinary, but extraordinary;
so come on, baby, turn this loud, make sure you hear me… yeah
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna…
hate if you wanna...
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna…
hate if you wanna… yeah…

(Of course i see ya, but it’s like see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya
stunt man only gets one scene, in the movie of my life…
my cuz slim schooled me to the mic then he died that night…

It's like m for the movement means mastering the measurable,
maintaining magical moments in more than memorable

swank gang - j-town, freehold raceway, dodge city, let’s go)



As I walk through the valley of the shadow on a mission;
I’ma tell you ‘bout my lesser known facts if you listen…
I’m very hood rich, financially illiterate;
I might make it rain on a stripper to say I did it…
and I got more debt more bills than a little bit;
and living outside of my means which I’m living…
like a middle class citizen wit habits of po’ folk…
an impulse buyer, I'm lying? it’s no joke;
when will I learn my lesson, eviction and repossession;
baseline mac mini plus tax, that’s my credit score…
oh lord, college loans in default, but I make good money,
so it’s all my fault… word bond, y’all keep on thinking I’m smart;
it’s like i got it all together but i’m fallin’ apart…
man if it wasn’t for me dropping this intellectual property;
anger and the anxiety prolly would've been bodied me…


I am not ordinary, but extraordinary; (I am not ordinary)
so come on, baby, turn this loud, make sure you hear me… yeah (so turn it up, turn it up)
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna…
hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
yeah…


yo, as I walk thru the valley of the shadow, I battle these demons;
that won’t let me smile because my teeth is
prosthetic…my aunt said it’s genetic,
but I think it was the sugar, inhalers and hygenics;
plus despising my dentist - low novocaine, dang, the pain, drove me dementedly ill…
i popped migraine pills thru college
to dull the toothaches, while my whole grill rotted;
but one day my jaw collapsed, cuz that’s how fate go…
got ‘em fixed, but it’s a crooked smile like J Cole…
I look in the mirror - it’s my self that I loathe…
knowin’ 12 years ago, that my smile was gold…
i thought that i felt the full gravity;
then saw as a dad that my daughter had cavities;
for the record: lesson: heath’s the real wealth …
suggestion: healthy habits - take care of yourself…

I am not ordinary, but extraordinary; (I am not ordinary)
so come on, baby, turn this loud, make sure you hear me… yeah (so turn it up, turn it up)
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna…
hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
yeah…

Yo as I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death;
i feel like a damn idiot savant at the mic check . . .
blind, deaf, dumb, half numb;
one paycheck away from being a bum . . .
illuminati want my mind soul and my body;
eye of the providence be promising he watches me…
god has bestowed upon me clairvoyant properties;
my music bring the dragon out the water like Tommy…
I kept on drinking that, smoking that chronic;
tryna be another typical cat, but I could not quit…
seeing; the struggle and the hustle but the trouble;
never touch me like the mutha’uckin boy in the bubble…
it’s Hiphop when the Rainman cometh;
maybe bring my desperation to light, change it to something else…
maybe health, love, awareness and wealth;
maybe I could see my father, get my mother some help…
maybe i could learn brotherly love like philadelph;
maybe i could bring real rap back, and win the belt
maybe i could be happy for a whole damn day;
maybe in a conversation i could know what to say…
they say it’s - mission impossible, probably won’t pull it off;
wit patience and gambling, I’m not shook at all…
I feel more enlightened than a UFO sighting;
plus it’s heart and it’s soul in the poems that I’m writing…

yeah!

I am not ordinary, but extraordinary; (I am not ordinary)
so come on, baby, turn this loud, make sure you hear me… yeah (so turn it up, turn it up)
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna…
hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
I’m like hate if you wanna, hate if you wanna… (or you could show love [x2])
yeah…
