From The Bottom to The Top - Devlin

In 5 years time, I've come along way since school days
I was in the bad books always if I wern't at the head masters
then mugs'll be facing the walls in the hallways
I spat bars in the D.O the only thing that kept me strong than,
them same roads that feds be on, & back then if we did a crime,
hear the sirens & like lets be gone
Damn!
Since they never guess a lot has changed, no it ain't no school games
then I've got a name
Usually/Visually I've seen a lot of pain & back then I let beef slide
But, I'm not ashamed

I was only a kid then, I didn't have no access to a big black
stick then, now I might run up on your boys & stick them, snap 'em
like stick men with a stick bigger than big ben

Came from the bottom to the top I'm from a place where the kids
threw rocks at the bottom of the blocks pushing cds' like drugs
Got mix tape money in my socks,
Laugh? Ye say its' funny is it not, mugs would of been flopped & its'
been a whole year still waiting for your mix tape to drop so don't
mistake the block

Yo' Im glad I came from the bottom to the top cause back then I didnt want to know,
if I can say that I did it on my own, I'm glad I stuck to the path I chose
Yo' Im glad I came from the bottom to the top cause back then I didnt want to know,
if I can say that I did it on my own, I'm glad I stuck to the path I chose

I've been from temptations
I flavored to rings the music they sing savor sends them off laughin'
I started them craps and barklett better yet properly kicking walls in & sh_t
Them days ya taking a risk went through a glass wall
Cut my veins in my wrist I was lucky that my main arteries got missed
then the hospital pierced with more than just one stitch
& They say the game is no referee that er' coulda' been the death of me
Now I've got a build of a deficit,
17 with big dreams like a roll I've ever been

I've got hearts like I've never seen
Seems impossible
Seen where I've come from
Now I'm uncrossable
Money in a bundle
Skanks agree scondon
Screaming out London

&' I pray in 4 years all writin' they put
I'm not talent, &' back then I was writin' now
I'm king of the titans
I'm king of the seas like poseidon
I looked up to the lands of the seas
When I was o'3 when I was 13
My favorite Mc's tables are turned
Now they ain't got nothing on me
Come and see

Yo' Im glad I came from the bottom to the top cause back then I didnt want to know,
if I can say that I did it on my own, I'm glad I stuck to the path I chose

I remember days they didn't know my name
Now I'm paid & I only got myself to blame but I don't want
a nice watch or chain you can keep your fame
It's O.T to the grave then back again

Yea I've just lost my job
So, back to the roads
Selling weed again
He's selling what again
They're selling crack again
I've got ya back again
Pure drug packaging

Didn't think when I was 12 or 13 the whole scene
with your respect when he heard me glad I started
early now I'm gonna make the whole scene prefer me
They could hate but they could of nerved me
I'm fixated with making the papers
Rolling without takers with all yeh stakers
Now ye can't break us
Even god forsakes as I watch all the haters

Yo' Im glad I came from the bottom to the top cause back then I didnt want to know,
