lyrics

(Chorus)
Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children, gotta stay battle ready
Aimed and willing

Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children
So I spit them street rhymes and how one can fulfill them

(Verse 1)
I was told life's what you make it
Steady raining down why I'm trying to make a sound
Yall trying to slang a pound while I be sitting in the studio
Wild off the bottle trying to push down the throttle
Yea I want them models, But ain't nothing to glamorize
Cars, Clubs, Jewels - They equivalent to Hammer Time
Loose it all within that one year paycheck
PD independent I could give a fuck for Maybachs
This is how we spray that, paybacks like Tommy
West Coast we got that bomb weed - Sour D and Rommy
Take a puff and get lifted, but never loose your mind
There's Cali Girls, Cali Bitches, Cali Love and Cali Time
And they all run late no debate against the fact
You put in cycles like gyros and hope it spins back
Real fact no fiction in this life that we livin'
Sometimes I feel like X-Raided, Unforgiven

(Chorus)
Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children, gotta stay battle ready
Aimed and willing

Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children
So I spit them street rhymes and how one can fulfill them

(Verse 2)
Give me a pen or a pencil, a pad and a hour
Give me one good blunt and Imma show you all my power
Work for 8 hours, still make it to the studio
Lay two tracks and bounce, yea this music's my habitual
I took a seat - Now I'm driving for the goal line
Get a hold of yourself - Cuz you never can control time
Controlled mine paid the rent and finished school
Now systematic society can't label me a fool
You acting Joe Cool light a smoke for your relief
See this microphone to me, is the same as when I chief
Yea I stay so high, But I'm always on some new shit
leave like Britney Murphy have the whole world clueless
I can't believe what I've done and where I've been
All the good, all the bad, all the love and all the sin
Yet I made it to this day and Imma strive to the next
Imma show em all my knowledge when they come and try to test

(Chorus)
Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children, gotta stay battle ready
Aimed and willing

Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children
So I spit them street rhymes and how one can fulfill them

(Verse 3)
Only true representation
Can equal street dreams out of bad situations
Mad concentration - Channeled all my anger
Wrote it down on a page now I perform it to strangers
Love what I make, I make it everyday
Make every kinda way yea music is my soul
It's everything I know, why I grow to be different
Why I stepped away from love, cuz this music is bigger
Headphone en-capsuled, soled out rap shows
our names on that flyer use to step through that back door
Let yall know that none of this came easy
Worked for many long nights - missed out on parties and beezies
Went from dirty, to sleezy, to at least clean clothes
Now I'm traveling the land seeing where this music roam
Where this music goes and who it takes along with it
Got a team, Got a fam and that's Public Defendaz

(Chorus)
Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children, gotta stay battle ready
Aimed and willing

Life's what you make it, steady try and shape it
Or end up running careless, clueless, and naked
I see em shaping our children
So I spit them street rhymes and how one can fulfill them
