it’s strag baby, it’s strag baby
guerin
aye - I feel hella fucking good right now
I’m in my fucking zone
let’s go

[verse]
and y’all don’t want me increasing my confidence
‘cause I might start getting all the compliments
might really start knowing who the fuck I am
and it’ll only expose your incompetence
well, at least you self aware
at least you hella care
cus shit I like when I walk in and I get hella stares
walked hella stairs to the top and you was never there
man you was never there
y’all sleeping on me, wait until my buzz get louder
gon’ be keeping tabs on me like an internet browser
staying outta trouble, I had to put this shit subtle
carrying the whole team, lyrical triple double
huh, I seen it all man, really seen it all
I’m boutta unload on em, waiting for the call
‘cause yall get me wrong man, really got me wrong
y’all couldn’t call me out on any given flaw
‘cause I ain’t perfection but I never question my worth
ain’t my job to make you love me but i still make it work huh
I ain’t perfection but I never question my worth
ain’t my job to make you love me but i still make it work
Track Name: Even Tho
yeah
strag baby
I had to tell em
I had to tell em man, you know I had to tell em
let’s go
I had to tell em
I had to tell em man, you know I had to tell
(tell em, tell em, tell em)

even though
even though
you aint here to see this
‘cause you left at my weakest
even though
even though
you know I give my word and keep it
I thought I told you I’d be this


[verse 1]
I was just that youngin’ always up to something
the year I switched schools became a nothing all a sudden
but I still dream of a mansion, big pool, Mercedes
2 dogs, green lawn, 4 car garage - nothing crazy
but they ain’t see the vision like I see it
in my head day dreaming
guess it’ll be my little secret
‘cause they all jump at the chance to say you ain’t got one
wait til they see me pullin’ up, they all gon’ call shot gun
I always had this thing for proving people wrong and so much odds against me
so to me, this shit is fun this game gon’ always get the best me
and that could explain why my ex always felt short changed
and I see her on IG these days like damn you for sure changed
but that’s none of my concern now
bridges burn, another waves turn, and then you learn, wow
look how far we came, man I’m just so proud
of the come up, glo up
we went through hell together but now this bitch about to go up, even tho

[chorus]
even though
you aint here to see this
‘cause you left at my weakest
even though
even though
you know I give my word and keep it
I thought I told you I’d be this

too bad you aint believe it
I didn’t want to stunt on you
you gon’ make me have to stunt on you
bitch that’s just too much on you
that’s just too much


[verse 2]
some people give support, got others throwing shade
about to call you up like damn I know it’s late (hello)
but I need to get some words out my chest
I’m depressed
I lost sight of my path but now I’m back, baby steps
only few could understand how much I want it
and I’m more focused than ever for my coins, super sonic
I have a dream of this team in my head that won’t die
and I envision us splitting these earnings, just living life
yeah that’s right
talking champagne bottles popping, set it down in some ice
imagine how rewarding it’d feel knowing you made it right
but I’m always weary of those that appearing to be behind me
‘cause the second I turn, I learn they holding knives tryna blind me
I say let’s go and get this money quick, they said lets go bruh
now all I see out my fence are boas and fucking cobras
sad chain of events led to this, it’s getting old but
bitch I digress, I cry less, I’m bout to go up, even tho

[chorus]
even though
you aint here to see this
‘cause you left at my weakest
even though
even though
you know I give my word and keep it
I thought I told you I’d be this

too bad you aint believe it
I didn’t want to stunt on you
you gon’ make me have to stunt on you
bitch that’s just too much on you
that’s just too much

Track Name: Whole Damn Thing
[chorus] x2
I want the whole damn thing
money, fame
want the whole damn thing
my fam deserve the whole damn thing
get it while I can ‘cause that’s the whole damn thing
I never lie

[verse 1]
I been having dreams about this ting since I was 9, man
thankful for where I’m at, feeling blessed to be alive, fam
but if you think as big as me, you never satisfied, man
not until my whole damn team eating, we ain’t on no diet plan
I tell you, man I really tell you
they gon’ promise the world to you but I promise they gon’ fail you
what I tell you man, I seen it, lived it
if you don’t ball, we can’t kick it
calling me a mean girl now cus my limit not existing
I’ll wait for that to make sense to you, gather all your thoughts
and I think I’ma stay real rather than be who I’m not
but fuck all that you feel, if you don’t believe I’m destined
and if you don’t think I’m invested, this should answer all your questions
I want the whole damn thing and it’s closer than it’s ever been
they saying don’t forget about me as if we were ever friends
I really don’t understand the logic of trying to stop this
you should focus on your own shit, so let’s stick to the topic (let’s go)

[chorus] x2
I want the whole damn thing
money, fame
want the whole damn thing
my fam deserve the whole damn thing
get it while I can ‘cause that’s the whole damn thing
I never lie

[verse 2]
they laughed behind my back, wack
smiled up in my face, snakes
hiding in the grass, ask
what else can they take
they might as well for goodness sake
have to put y’all in your place
‘cause you went after a shark, not knowing you was bait
and I know you see me glo-ing, where the time go
living in the moment, in different time zones
I get it ‘cause I want it
man this wave coming, no warning
might be sleeping on me but you gon’ learn today like you dorming
tsunami forming, tell Kehlani for me
‘cause my focus way too foreign and I got fucking hunger for it
so, I’ma be a beast til my team eats, fuck a fork and knife, mane
getting in our way’s like getting in the way of freight trains (let’s go)

[chorus] x2
I want the whole damn thing
money, fame
want the whole damn thing
my fam deserve the whole damn thing
get it while I can ‘cause that’s the whole damn thing
I never lie
Track Name: Genuine
yeah
Strag baby
JC Biffro
let’s go

[chorus]
I just want something genuine,
say you love me, really mean it
and if I told you all my dreams, all I wanted to achieve,
wouldn’t be hard to believe it
‘cause you know that I can make it happen
want to know you want the best for me
‘cause these days that shit is hard to find
and I hope you don’t think less of me
oh yeah, oh yeah

[verse 1]
I hope this shit ain’t too much to ask
I just want to feel like you’ll keep having my back
there’s way too many fakes tryna hand me their time
but are they really for me, would they look out for mines?
or just theirs, ‘cause I swear these bridges getting too damn week
people tend to forget shit’s a two way street
I just need the basics, mean it if you say it
like just tell me the truth, even if I’ll hate it
even if it may hurt me, no point in sparing feelings
but don’t you dare you desert me when shit hits the ceiling
hits the fan, be one of my biggest fans
when something good happens, be as happy as I am
understand where I’m coming from
respect my aspirations of becoming number one, uh
accept me for my flaws, call me out if I’m wrong
but don’t smile up in my face and disgrace me when I’m gone
I’m tired of people fucking with you for their own benefit
I rather have you helping for the hell of it
I’m tired of people being all take, no giving
every one of their intentions all fake, no feeling

[chorus]
I just want something genuine,
say you love me, really mean it
and if I told you all my dreams, all I wanted to achieve,
wouldn’t be hard to believe it
‘cause you know that I can make it happen
want to know you want the best for me
‘cause these days that shit is hard to find
and I hope you don’t think less of me
oh yeah, oh yeah

[verse 2]
this one goes out for the girl that left me
’cause in the process you forgot to respect me
don’t think you believed I could live up to potential
all the while, this shit here feeling so special
and I really wish that you kept cheering me on
but I guess it got tiring, hope you hearing this song
and I hope you wish your I love you’s never lost meaning
if you thinking that I lost you, girl don’t believe it
I deserve to be treated like a human
don’t make me feel down about the dreams that I’m pursuing
and I don’t care ‘bout what you think and how you view it
all I needed was you to keep it real, you couldn’t do it, uh
I deserve to be treated like a human
don’t make me feel down ‘bout the dreams that I’m pursuing
and I don’t care ‘bout what you think and how you view it
all I needed was you to keep it real, you couldn’t do it

[chorus]
I just want something genuine,
say you love me, really mean it
and if I told you all my dreams, all I wanted to achieve,
wouldn’t be hard to believe it
‘cause you know that I can make it happen, uh
want to know you want the best for me (for me)
‘cause these days that shit is hard to find (to find, to find)
and I hope you don’t think less of me
oh yeah, oh yeah

to a hater, I just stay on my same old grind
and I could make you so thankful you came
‘cause when you come you gon’ be saying my name
true story, remember this for me
if it ain’t about money then it’s probably boring
so fuck your relationship goals
I’m doing me, you need to take a few notes

I tried to stay away but there’s no helping it
what’s it gon’ take to get you in the passenger
tank on full, you know I ain’t gassing ya

Track Name: Ill Will
[chorus]
I’m gone off that Henny
so do not attempt me, I hope this don’t make you resent me
I’m spending and still left with plenty,
got dreams of a Bentley so try and offend me
for having some goals and chasing success
if this you tryna test me
I’m working my ass off, just cashing some checks

[verse 1]
man I don’t understand
how you can be mad when I have a plan
I know what I want and I know that I can
if it didn’t pan out for you, that’s too bad
but don’t give me shit ‘cause you went and you quit
easy way out will never get you in
but me and my friends in it for the long haul
started with the small ball
so we got a grip, kicked it over fence
I hope this make sense
master it, I’m coming after it, hunter like Pence
whatever it take, I’ma pay the expense
wanna get in the way of success, go be my guest
testing your luck
haven’t you had enough
man I’m calling your bluff
but I doubt you’ll pick up
quick to act tough even quick to be strangers
when you’re confronted in the face of danger

[chorus]
I’m gone off that Henny
so do not attempt me, I hope this don’t make you resent me
I’m spending and still left with plenty,
got dreams of a Bentley so try and offend me
for having some goals and chasing success
if this you tryna test me
I’m working my ass off, just cashing some checks

[verse 2]
man I came a long way
from not knowing shit, and thinking it’s okay
9 to 5 job started minimum wage
whatever it costs just to stay in the game
but I ain’t afraid of the dudes
in fact they all love what I do
praising the flow and they loving the crew
who you know get the utmost respect
run up on your team, tell em - we next
reset at the top of the key ‘cause the ball in my court
they look up to me even though I’m still short
but I’m still tryna get enough dollas
that if I stand on my stacks I’d be a foot taller
looking at ballers in their ’64 ‘Pala
dreaming of the day we so paid they wanna rob us
you’ll never understand if you ain’t where I’m coming from
one of the greatest, man, swear that I’m becoming one, uh

[chorus]
I’m gone off that Henny
so do not attempt me, I hope this don’t make you resent me
I’m spending and still left with plenty,
got dreams of a Bentley so try and offend me
for having some goals and chasing success
if this you tryna test me
I’m working my ass off, just cashing some checks

in hopes to mind my own business
business is on my mind, making my way through snitches
and bitches just trying to find every reason to hit this
backstab me from behind, my real n—s my witness
and I ain’t finished man, I’m just getting started
brain in the clouds, plane ain’t even departed
I’m heading to the south of Cali, become an artist
but it'll always be the Bay for me, that’s where my heart is
everything I got, I earned
tryna make money to burn
I could only ever be just me
even if that means you'll leave
fuck it
life’s too short to even care at all
I just wanna have fun, don’t wanna get involved
and anything else is overrated and flawed
and I don’t need your help, already made it this far (so here we go)

[chorus]
I be here just living my dreams
I'm just out here doing me
no regrets or apologies

Track Name: Growin' Up
[verse 1]
I was always that kid, shy and reserved
a new school, I cried and I learned
that this wouldn’t be like the last one
man, I used to have fun
I used to be a cool kid, now I’m just a random
and I always had a feeling I was different
a feeling they would judge me, a feeling I couldn’t miss it
a feeling i was just ugly from the inside out
I couldn’t even be myself in my own house
imagine having to dress a certain way that you hated
and fighting with your parents, low key feeling degraded
made it clear to myself that I had to stop it
and I prayed to God to take this away, I didn’t want it
but I kept waking up just the way He made me
so I guess even prayer couldn’t change me
but why would this one thing make every body hate me
everybody fear me, like I had rabies
rumors start to leak, I walk alone confused
then some boys from my class ask me if it's true
of course I deny it but how long could I hide it
I just knew I wouldn’t hear the end
so I just pretend, again
some people not in my shoes say that I’m just confused
I wasn’t even old enough to choose by the time I knew
so you can shove your theories up your ass
thanks to you it was hard as shit growing up, man

[chorus]
and if you're on the same boat
there's hope
I promise it'll get better
just remember
you gon’ realize who your real friends are
you gotta stay strong even when it gets hard
we all did it
I had to go through the crappiest shit
but you gon’ find someone to share your happiness with
so it’s worth it
and nobody's perfect
but you perfect at being you
so go head and work it

[verse 2]
somehow avoided getting outed, they suspected something
I kept getting confronted, I just said I wasn’t
I could tell by their tone, they'd eat me alive
so at the time it was smarter to just run and hide
from the truth and who I really was
man this shit is really dumb
imagine not being about to tell people you really love
high school was scary, but that’s what drama does
I was just starting to be okay with who I was
when my parents looked through my phone, saw those texts
I was crying, they were yelling, rumors start to spread
and I was being told what I was doing was bad
but this ain’t something that I do, it’s just something that I am
and all the emotions hit the surface
if God hates gays why did He make me this on purpose
when you living with this task, that’s the type of shit you ask
thanks to you it was hard as shit growing up, man

[chorus]
and if you're on the same boat
there's hope
I promise it'll get better
just remember
you gon’ realize who your real friends are
you gotta stay strong even when it gets hard
we all did it
I had to go through the crappiest shit
but you gon’ find someone to share your happiness with
so it’s worth it
and nobody's perfect
but you perfect at being you
so go head and work it

[bridge]
and if you don't believe me
that's okay
but for god sakes let me hug you, tell you that it's okay
wipe your tears and tell all your fears to go away
‘cause the world wouldn’t be the same without your lovely face
so do us all a favor, be brave for tomorrow
just always be yourself and what’s meant to be will follow
just remember all of that when shit hits the fan
I hope for you, it’s not as bad growing up, man

[chorus]
and if you're on the same boat
there's hope
I promise it'll get better
just remember
you gon’ realize who your real friends are
you gotta stay strong even when it gets hard
we all did it
I had to go through the crappiest shit
but you gon’ find someone to share your happiness with
so it’s worth it
and nobody's perfect
but you perfect at being you
so go head and work it

go head and work it girl
yeah, go head and work it boy
whatever you identify as, I don’t give a fuck quite frankly
go head and work it
