Hunger - Slum Village

Let's take a journey to my heart
And find there the fire that was burning from the start
Just a hungry nigger with a humble beginning
It wasn't how much time, it was how did I spent it
I spent it working on my craft, the b_tches used to laugh
But they was blowing up my phone when I was firstly in the crowd
Remember first day in class, when I wanted to be a rapper
And everybody in the room bursted in laughter
But now I got doors mmm, record deals count my mails
And all I had to do is spit hard sh_t to pay my bills
Jumpin' on this big stage and rocked it
And you're still living the same, but not in this
And look it, I'm not a stick, just a ?
Somehow I profited over this non-sense
F_ck what you did, but you do this in the present
'cause words don't mean sh_t, I wanna see evidence.

Between me and the next man getting it
I'm a tell you really what the difference is
I still got the hunger
When an all day cry from the fall to the winter and the spring
And I do it to the summer, yeah
I mean you never know
Words to be to the fall and will bring you under, yeah
And I do what I gotta do to show this guys I don't lose, 'cause it's all about the hunger

Dreams are reality, you just got to get there
Took a long time, but look, mom, I got here
It's been a struggle that I've been through
But in the end, you showed me it's my first truth
I gotta sail with no ? , just a tight circle
No 'yes man' and nobody that wanna hurt me
I kept them moving through the jungle of confusion
Living memories I wish were illusions
Remedy seemed so heavy then, they told me 'give it up'
Joke's on you, ha ha' and now I live it up
I'm rocking stages, thousands with the V's in their hands standing on chairs
I came the long way so I can tell on shows and open mic's
But practice makes perfect, yo
Now I'm where I'm supposed to be, bet i get where I wanna be, in control of my own destiny

Between me and the next man getting it
I'm a tell you really what the difference is
I still got the hunger
When an all day cry from the fall to the winter and the spring
And I do it to the summer, yeah
I mean you never know
Words to be to the fall and will bring you under, yeah
And I do what I gotta do to show this guys I don't lose, 'cause it's all about the hunger

Someone's touching my back, hommie, you can see the ribs
I pissed I'm competing in the industry for the kids
And man I'm over here, coming here, not for all,
Tell the dummies that money ain't what they used to be when you're making them here
I wouldn't do it any other way, though
I knew what I was gonna be before I was playing with 'Play Dough'
I got what you need if you don't hear, than I will make more
Then I come back to my role and I play more
Not one of you guys have the audacity to say 'no'
Take a look at my eye, you will see that I am more than human,
I am hungry like a wild lion stalking his prade, yo
And I did it for some time until I got tired of NY and I moved out to LA, yo
Meeting with this stupid ? 'till I finally got a brake and I started working with trade, yo
Then the years were passing and I started drinking
I heard people laughing at me and I started thinking
That I hit the bottom in the wound spinning and shrinking
Now I'm meeting the ? like the zombie all?
Get it?
I'm a beast no matter the facet
And despite the grace of the God I appear to the masses
The moral of the story is you will never see the things I saw
Until you spend some time looking at to my glasses

Between me and the next man getting it
I'm a tell you really what the difference is
I still got the hunger
When an all day cry from the fall to the winter and the spring
And I do it till the summer, yeah
I mean you never know
Words to be to the fall and will bring you under, yeah
And I do what I gotta do to show this guys I don't lose, 'cause it's all about the anchor
