INTRO
Ayo Hit I like this IE weather

VERSE 1
Hey, look
Vote Yes on Hit-Boy b*tch I鈥檓 the city spokesman
They see we got this sh*t crackin鈥 and now they spirit broken
I鈥檓 standin鈥 on the green like the British Open
And stackin鈥 ice on top of ice but I鈥檓 not building snowmen
Doctors couldn鈥檛 even detect my disorders
One case, six figures on six different lawyers
I put my soul in every song with limited support
Focused on the output not the outcome big God is my source
Spirit of excellence in my genetics
Complexities come with my complexion
鈥楩ore you shut me down let me reach my level first
Yall be too proud to do the devil鈥檚 work
All that actin鈥 and fakin鈥 I can鈥檛 take part in it
I鈥檓 washin鈥 my hands with the soap opera sh*t
Set the cameras to speed, co-directed KD
We know the caged bird sings and screams when it鈥檚 free
Every second I spit on this I got it back in blessings
You can鈥檛 stop and run no errands on the way to legend
They shoulda told 鈥榚m I鈥檓 raising up on the totem
Yeah, boilin鈥 over, pot full of yola
Mix it with the cola
Son of a block controlla
Can鈥檛 let 鈥榚m f*ck me over
Gotta keep my composure look

VERSE 2
Had yellow jaundice when I was born
Kept me in an incubator, ten days long
I made up songs, I was like humming tunes ten years later
Writin鈥 in my room ten years after that on stage like it鈥檚 too soon, but
For me see, my parents met inside a nightclub
Olu started to fight and then my moms broke it up
She said 鈥渢his boy he鈥檚 in the Navy, settle down before yall need savin鈥欌
Pop went to war around the world, came home we celebrated
AWOL
Fast forward to when I started to play ball
From a place where we hate law
See the Jakes and we take off (whoop whoop)
Hit the gate I get home and take my chain off
Thankful I got through the day and all the evil I prayed off
Everything is cause and effect
Make the wrong moves in this business you lose all your respect
My block is dark as it gets
We all make mistakes only a few will recover from 鈥榚m
Don鈥檛 spend your whole life runnin鈥 from 鈥榚m
Run up the numbers
Shoulda told 鈥榚m I鈥檓 raising up on the totem
Yeah, boilin鈥 over, pot full of yola
Mix it up with the cola
Son of a queen and a soldier
Can鈥檛 let 鈥榚m f*ck me over
Gotta keep my composure look

SPEECH
Keep your composure
On city blocks
And cell blocks
Keep your composure
Hold it down
Hold it tight
Hold it close
Hold space for yourself
It鈥檚 the way of the ancestors
Our elders
Our artists
Our OGs
Our dreamers
Our builders
With each breath internalize their successes
Their struggles
Their sense of self
Their sense of overcoming
And take that power forward through your life
Remind yourself of the magnitude of your good fortune
And the mere chance, one in billions, that you survived
That you will thrive
And even the strongest kings and queens being, yet remain unbroken
Keep your composure
And believe in the magic of who we are
鈥楥uz what you believe is everything
And what someone believes about you, is nothing
Keep your composure
I am Shaka Senghor
