Track Name: Full Circle
been gone, on my own
made my way ‘round the map
might be everywhere
one day, i’ll be back

born in the H, third ward exact
went around the world, looking for the world
looking for it, barely looking back at all
looking forward, gave my all for it all
day 2k11, BK
thinking of a plan with my friend
summer in the city feel real dim
granny real sick, mama held her hand
i on the other hand, far from home
on the other line heard mother cry
knew it in an instant, she's long gone
when she died, i died
i just took a walk, took a stroll
met a lady in the park, told her all
about it, let the tears go drip drip
in the cup i sipped
from the mcdonald's up the block
used to laugh with granny round the clock
never looked at a watch
never cared
never knew death
till you weren't here
love every moment
till it's all gone
every day face another unknown
still walk in her room
our home
made for me
wish she waited, im gone

been gone, on my own
made my way ‘round the map
might be everywhere
one day, i’ll be back

daddy think i'm lost
mama think i'm crazy
left home for the unknown
all along there was no debating
old player, new game
i changed all my old ways
life look a lil better now, i'll never be the same
paid every cost
felt the frustration
left home for another home
then another home that i hated
old player, new game
i changed all my old ways
no place gives you everything
make the best then move away

been gone, on my own
made my way ‘round the map
might be everywhere
one day, i’ll be back
Track Name: Cool Whip
beautiful ain't it?
doing me getting money, creating
if you can do you for the rest of your life and get paid
then nigga you made it
shout out my brother ill faded
remember when we went to Vegas
we got so lit on your 30th
swear to god we need a spanking
one day i’ll be outta LA
live somewhere beautiful, just me and bae
minimal traffic, real satisfaction
home with a bed and the cutest duvet
overworked, do it only cause my soul hurt
keep busy or my mind gets to me
been wit it way before i saw a titty
back in the day, made bands like diddy
made my own wave, niggas can't swim near me
made my own lane, niggas cant steer near me
wanna be loved, ain’t tryna be feared
peace to my peers, it’s a reason we here
cease beef and get money this year
been three weeks ain't had one beer
took a lil break and it don't feel weird
still pull up to cha cha and treat it like cheers

they say I’m too sick
I’m tryna have my cake and eat it
with some cool whip
hey JP, where you get this beat?
this shit is groovy
I’m doing me I’m doing me
ain't gotta prove shit
ain't gotta prove shit

they say I’m too lit
I’m tryna have my cake and eat it
with some cool whip Lucas grooving on the keys
got me like "ooh wee"
I’m doing me I’m doing me
ain't gotta prove shit
ain't gotta prove shit

from now on

if the money in it, might go get it
every dollar ain't worth my stress
if it match with what i do best
i’ll kill it by being myself
don't talk to my ex, her dude gon trip
got Wallabees on when I step in this bitch
i wanna be home, not on the road now
unless I get bread in a very large amount
love it when my girl chill with me on the couch
you only gon hear truth out my mouth
“when doves cry” kinda deep for a pop song
put Purple Rain on, i’ma get the popcorn
takes time to figure out who you really are
when you find out, don't stray too far
be strong, the reward will surprise
never know what you’ll get they say
