BJ The Chicago Kid – Be Great lyrics

Do you wanna be great
Do you wanna be great
Do you wanna be great
Do you wanna be great

Do you know what it takes, do you know what it takes to be great?
Do you know what it takes, do you know what it takes to be great? Yeah, yeah
(Do you wanna?)

I put 9,999 hours in
Still with the same ones who I first started with
Took me a little time, now I know better (know better)
They been tryna change me, I won't let 'em
Great is when you put ten thousand hours in it
Great is when you're never satisfied with it
Great is when you know you gon' lose friends
But that's just you cutting off the loose ends
Great is when you're moving like you're independent signed
To the town but you know that I been on a mission
Did a whole lot of politicking last year
If they haven't got it yet, then I guess they was never meant to get it

Be great
Oh, do you, do you, do you really wanna be great?
Yeah, do you really wanna be great?
I wanna know, oh, ooh
Do you wanna be, do you really wanna be great?
Oh yeah, oh (do you wanna?)

Yeah, I flipped 2,900.14 miles from the shot of LA
Sometimes I don't sleep, forget to eat
Yeah, I do it damn near every day
'Cause I'm working so hard, gotta be systematic
Automatic, don't you gotta have it, now
Greatness is lusting for top out of losses and told by the bosses
The boss is the teacher and they can't reach ya 'fore church is in conference
But before church is in conference, they expectations is for us to teach often
Ooh, my people are praying, hear what I'm saying, do it today

Be great, yeah, ooh
I can do it, you can do it, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
Yeah, I just got one question
Do you wanna be great?
I just wanna know, I just wanna know
Do you wanna be, yes, I wanna be great
Do you wanna be, be, great?

A moment of silence
When the guns come out, the phones come out
Defy you way, damn it, you dodge today
Won't stop it 'til we finish here
But they never kill someone 'til they kill your kin
Meanwhile, Trump busy tryna build the fence
Our best defense the vote is going out against us
Stop when I'm out of oxygen, don't box us in
The message is, goddammit, we was built to win, now be great
