Caleborate – I'm Still Alive lyrics
[Verse 1]
They say real niggas don't wear tight jeans and denim jackets
Well I do so excuse me if I'm out of fashion
Always breaking the dress code at every event
Coming through with a backpack on
You know me well
I'm that kid that you never knew
Standing right in front of you
Making you acknowledge that I rap and go to college
And I got jobs like Steve
A rotten apple, from a tree of misfits
And I mack like lipstick
When I'm on stage with the ladies and a crowd
Don't forget me
When I get off stage I'm kind of short
You might miss me
Like the first time I met [?]
Its kind of funny, he called me his little brother
Secretly that made me feel good
Then he got on twitter about seven days later
Said his big homie told him not to call nobody little brother
I don't know how I should feel about that
I don't know if I should open up and tweet right back like
Yo nigga it was good to meet you
Either way I'm gonna respect you
Even though I know that you know I'm dope too
I never did expect to
Have all these fans off some youtube comments
But I guess shit was meant to
Be like, hopefully seeing my ends dub
Or me and D-Nas in the club will spin some
Praying that [aiming?] will probably get me some spins
When Team BackPack replies to my e-mail sent (but um)
Imma keep waitin', been a minute, I been patient
Not a doctor [???????] I'm lookin' proper
Everyday , see what my haters say
Notice that they not coherent cuz my rhymes be transparent
And I'm rushin' tryna make that open mic in parkway
Drop a couple lines and try to make it down to Broadway
With Jayla and Janessa, they be showin' me love
And all the SF state girls that [nanye?] hooked up
And Muhammad put me on , man that was whassup
So much better when you really good friends with the plugs
That are finessin', tryna make'em think you fuckin' wit'em
Man if you met him you would think a pimp's blood was in him
I'm name droppin' like y'all know who I'm talkin' about
And if you listening you the reason while I'm shoutin' him out
I'm just in need of y'all support (forreal)
[Verse 2]
And I'm still safe safe
Dodgin' all them payments
Sleepin' on my auntie couch like it was the Days Inn
Guess I came along way from [????]
Back stocking jeans at Levi's I'm at my savin'
Man I'm tired of workin' retail I need some favors
Tell'em that you seen my show, Tell'em that you seen my momma in the crowd, drop a tear, clappin' for her baby
Tell'em that seen Young Simba bring me out on stage with Derek King and Ronny Banks , girls all up in they faces
I'm sittin' in the back thinkin' bout how I can take'em
Then Nick calls, man that's my brother, if I didn't have that nigga I would probably go crazy, still goin' crazy tryna figure out a way to make sure my brother see the same fame I know I'm facin'
And you can't replace that, blood's thicker than water
I learned that from Player's Club (ya'll remember that one scene?)
It's this one thing like Amerie say
I'm only focused on this rap cuz it's my way to make it out
And it's tragic cuz I'm black so it be like that
And if this was for radio I'd have to rewrite that
I don't got time to brag and boast, man it's things like that that make you niggas sound the same, I guess it be like that
And I ain't tryna throw shade, illuminate with words
Never skipped too many classes now to play with you nerds
A lot of people are hungry in this game until the money comes
I never ate, I'm just workin to take care of my mom
(Mr? What the hell does TBKTR mean?)
The most important things in life really aren't things
And I just hope that I make it before I live myself
I really hope that you listen before I find my wealth
[Outro]
Caleborate: Nothin, that's it that's it, that's-that's all I had to say man, um I don't know I just wanna take this time-ya know to say I'm in a good mood right now, I'm in a good place. And um I just kinda wanted to take this time to say thank you to everybody that fucks with me, like everybody that helped me and shit. I just kinda wanna know that even if I'm not on the social media and shit like that-like you'll still fuck wit me for the love and the music. That's the whole point of this shit. You know that's the whole reason why y'all started fuckin' with me in the first place. So I figured it's my duty to make sure this shit is right for y'all
Let this serve as a-as an introduction to the soul that you're bout to see from here on out. It's goin be much much more honest and much more real world life and shit , i don't know I just a-
I really appreciate you guys, you know

(harmonizing and repeating "still alive")
