Growing up, I remember when
I used to be alone in the world I was living in
But now I'm on the road
A different city every day and the whole world's listening

I'd say my victories prove it
And they can never take it from me
All my enemies slow down
'Cause you know you'll never catch me

Do it all for my people
'Cause they're the ones that give me pride
I think feel there is life for my people
Let's have a toast, just you and I

[Chorus]
Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down
Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt
Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all
I'm alright, I'm doing fine
Just celebrating, be proud

Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't (x3)

My the times have changed
I never had the attention but now it gets paid
Took a long time for people to mention my name
But what the f-ck is underrated when you're under the radar?
You hearin' what I'm sayin' today
I learned a whole lot of shit from the place that I came
Now I think back when I was up in the fader
Before I had the deal, before I became major
And that's my life, it's all in a moment
Before I met I'll Mind, before I exploded
Said I was just a kid looking for a reason to focus
Before I met I'll Mind, before I exploded
And that's why I...

Do it all for my people
'Cause they're the ones that give me pride
I think feel there is life for my people
Let's have a toast, just you and I

[Chorus]
Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down
Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt
Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all
I'm alright, I'm doing fine
Just celebrating, be proud

Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't (x3)

They just wanna hate me
No, they won't congratulate me, yea
There ain't no say you're me
Even if they're tryin' to imitate me

But I... I don't pay too much mind because I'm proud
And I sing it out loud

[Chorus]
Because I'm proud I turned my life upside down
Said there's no one else with a reason to doubt
Say what you like 'cause I don't hear it all
I'm alright, I'm doing fine
Just celebrating, be proud

Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't
Don't be mad 'cause I'm doing things you just can't
