Chorus -
(Relax & Take Notes)
The killer of quotes
The murder every line that I wrote
And if you needing that dope then
(Relax & Take Notes)

You know what I tote
The pad & the pen till I float
Till they call me the goat like
(Relax & Take Notes)

It aint no hope to cope
Showing mercy’s a nope
They lined up in my scope like
(Relax & Take Notes)

I got em at the end of they rope
They demote from the words I emote
(Relax & Take Notes)

Verse 1 -
Who did like I did it?
Who spit it the way I'm gone spit it
Who better to tell that authentic
I live it like I give it
No fake raps or daps adapt in it
Never was augmented
Never was off centered
If I pen it I meant it
Got 3 passports never lifted my pivot
Got platinum plaque stacked never shifted my penning
Til the casket drop from the beginning
Yea I start at the ending cause that's where you headed
I guess it's a given
Take advantage of the mic damn I guess I'm a Givens
And I'm still the head of the class I guess you ain't live it
Ain't no error saying my era the best ones that did it
I'm a terror terrific predator that’s prolific
Clinton would've gave me the sentence Obama had lifted
That's a problem impending
Got a problem with penning
I got slots get a spot for attending (Relax & take notes)

Chorus Repeat

Verse 2 -
Line for line my grind is imprinted
I used to skip my math class to get digits
You still there waiting on who to get with it
Cause with a co-sign in yo mind I been killing
Without a co-sign I rhyme they can't feel it
These lines ain't got limits it sound like y'all timid
It sound like you paddle your feet & ride diddick
The same way I hop on the beat & ride rhythmic
You complicating this shit dog it's simplistic
You add all the views I got & just list it
The YouTube the Spotify all of the twit shit
My IG, Facebook live data statistics
Now tally all those hits I just listed
Then scrap that shit press play & just listen
I’m Tor Liston Carr but no piston
A coney isle child from no pot to piss in
To 6 bathrooms still no shits given
You wanna live how I’m living...

Chorus Repeat
