´Get By´

This track was written to and embodies portions from Talib Kwelis ´Get By´.

Yo i keep it real when im flowin#im not tha best#im givin my all#tryin my best#i thought a told yall ima street poet#so im gonna keep tha ink flowin#writin verse after verse#never pausin#this is my test so i cant cheat#im coverin ur own exam sheet#and i dont gotta guess answers to tha questions#cos Tupac Shakur taught me everythin i know#so for that im thankfull#my girlfriend handed me her heart#lent me her hopes,dreams and ambitions#wantin me to try and full fill em#but its so hard#tryina cop success from bulls**t#peace is hopeless#so until u come up wit a reasonable solution#ima keep pullin s**t and seekin out foes to shut em up wit real life lyrics from tha mouth of a street poet

Chorus
(sung)

This mornin i woke up#feelin brand new and i jumped up#feelin my highs#and my lows#and my soul#and my goal#just to stop smokin and stop drinkin#but man im thinkin#i got my reasons#just to get by#just to get by#just to get by#byyyy

Verse 2
I sit and spit my rhymes/listen kid i aint electric/i aint even tha best there is alive/but ima strive/to survive#f**k gettin by#forget livin tha same s**t#change it#get up and rhyme or write#do whatever u can cos if not#man ur f**ked#stuck in a life long rut#workin 9 to 5 so u can stay in a apartment that u aint really want#stockin dimes so ur pretty daughter can go to college#its this thats gonna kill u alive#gonna rip at ur pockets in ur Levis#bump hydrolex#save ur credit#start makin better days tha present#im representin better lives and hotter wives#gotta crib but its s**ttier than hood shelterin#good times is on tha way#so u gotta settle,display patience and concentrate on bein a dad to ur children#cos listen yo#u might not know it#but its ur example they´re followin#not no up and comin hip hop artist

Chorus

Verse 3
(Spoken word)

[Aisha Taylor]
From tha midst of tha fires#comes tha lines of peoples desire#whos sole purpose is gettin by#desecratin they own minds#sons at 18#how unoriginal#how unbiblical#how ur gonna keep this up is unethical#seeds is gonna grow up and run amuck in tha Bronx#yes fools run our public schools in Harlem#but if those in Brooklyn dont wanna listen#then ur crew is gonna be facin extinction#aLDo#holla at em for a minute

Chorus

Verse 4

Uh,im feelin that Aisha#feelin how ya teach em#see now its my turn to speak to em#turn up tha heat and spit some deep spew#pick up ur feet#dont let em lead u#stick up for ur groceries#i know ur desperate but please#trust me#u dont wanna do a bid and leave ur kid strugglin to breathe#f**k it#im gonna leave#cos i dont think they´re gonna wanna start listenin to me

Chorus

About

Ima start by sayin that this track was written to and embodies portions from Talib Kwelis ´Get By´.Tha reason bein is that basically i luv tha track and i wanted to see wot i could do wit it.Obviously my version aint even in tha same league as tha original,but u no wot,it is wot it is.Tha song was supposed to be upliftin but we sorta started focusin on tha negatives and spoke on tha way people are livin their lives in our neighborhoods.Also for everybody that dont know (probably all yall) Aisha Taylor is a friend of mine and shes a up and comin slam poet from New York City.I think she brings sumin different to tha track,i mean tha bars on each verse arent alot,so in tha little amount of space i gave her i think that she excells.
