lyrics

Another play at the game where I'm killing these scores
On this mic for a while, but I'm feeling reborn
A few years in rap - in fact, add a few more
My memories of life before the start of Dual Core
Brain always carrying a rhyme
Try to get my skills up, battled all the time
At the Reebok tournament, winning first prize
Back when the Wiz was 100.9
Growing towards closure, exposure to the sound
Scribble Jam every year, scoping from the crowd
Snapping at these tracks when I open up my mouth
Developing my freestyle, know what it's about
Trolling other rappers, I was such a misfit
Science in my writing feeling so analytic
Verses in the circles, people didn't git it
I thought it was a cipher, guess I'm too cryptic

First class, hoping that I pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it true cause you know it's overdue
Still looking back at the path going through
This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue
Knew it through and through

Engage life, turned another page, right
Wednesday nights when i'd battle for the stage
Fright, put anxiety away
Went from being introverted to inspired when I play
My first show at Top Cats, staring at the crowd
The music we developed, now they're sharing in the sound
Getting big in the city, growing out of bounds
Evansville, Columbus, I'm going out of town
Didn't know to get around, find a better way
Getting tips from other artists so I'm learning every day
Blueprint and Dibbs really helped me find a balance
Impressed by the best, Midwest full of talent
In fact, still deposit in the track
If I thought it's up for grabs then I wouldn't give it back
Got a hold on the feeling, take control of the healing
Filling holes in my soul while I grow through the ceiling

First class, hoping that I pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it true cause you know it's overdue
Still looking back at the path going through
This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue
Knew it through and through

Back to me now, so the flow make it abstract
Memories shine in the glow of a flashback
Went from making something that I thought would get us laughed at
To outshining every other Cincinnati rap act
Still proving, not afraid of losing
Stored in my core feel the war still brooding
Underneath the hood, though, my brain's probably fuming
Only show it on the stage so I'm so unassuming
Plus human, and if I'm being fair
When we're counting up mistakes
Then I know I've made my share
Cause life's no guide, and it's no smooth ride
Swallow jealousy, envy, arrogance and pride
Put the pride in my work, the other ones aside
Cause life's too short and I'm running out of time
Proud of having fun while I rock it for the crowd
The music made it back, back to me now

First class, hoping that I pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it true cause you know it's overdue
Still looking back at the path going through
This is, first class, knowing that I'll pass
Priority delivery, settling the stats
Returning it to true cause I know it's overdue
Knew it through and through

We take it forward then back, forward then back
The internet claps while they torrent this track
Forward then back, forward then back
Beyond all my dreams doing more in this rap
Take it forward then back, forward then back
The internet claps while they torrent this track
Forward, back, forward, back, forward, back
Sure to make a splash, first class
