Look At Me Now (Lyrics)

INTRO:

Chyeeea! Uh, I’m feeling good right now man
(Chyea, chyea, look at me now baby, chyea, chyea, look at me now)
It’s been a long time like, I feel like the past couple of years I’ve come so far
But I’ve still got a long way to go to get to where I want to be, if that makes sense
It’s kind of like I’ve gone from zero to sixty but we’re trying to get to two hundred right about now
(Chyea, chyea, look at me now baby, chyea, chyea, look at me now)
But this is the song we’re going to sing when we get there.

VERSE 1:

Hustling, grinding, struggling, striving
Want it then you’ve got to be
Trying to get my numbers up, harder than the lottery
I don’t care about the car I’m trying to get the property
So I’m not buying out the bar I’m trying to set up properly
I expect adversity I live to overcome it
Forgotten anniversary you’re gonna get confronted
My growth is exponential I’ll be rocking till I’ve won it
Cuz my flow is presidential I’m Barack-ing till I run it (chyeeea!)
The story of my life, I could office it and cake it
But that glory’s not my type I want the opposite of basic
I’m trying to be a superstar, a king of all the places
Pulled the jokers out my deck and now I’m rolling with some aces
Made fans along the way, so I’ve gotta make it pay
I’ll put in 20 hour days as if a worked in M&A
Now I’m five years in the game I’ve seen a little glimpse of fame
But would love to reach the stage where honeys flipping off the name.

CHORUS:

You kicked me when I was down, wouldn’t help me off the ground
You said I would never make it and I wouldn’t fit the crown but
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!
We started at the bottom they thought we were gonna stop
So we’re working even harder till we make it to the top like
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!

VERSE 2:

My talent’s cultivated I’m too smart to be gangster
I’ve got too much education and know way too many bankers
My shares could be the greatest, I’ve got fame on my to do list
And I’m ready for the ride I’ve got my drink I’ve got my Rubik’s
Some say my life’s amazing is that really what it seems?
Just a brother working extra hard to super-size my dreams
It ain’t easy people see me, some tell me that they feel me
The other day a kid I met told me he wants to be me
I just smirked like ‘Do you really want to be him?’
All I do is eat and work and rap and go to the gym
So if you want some awesome abs then I can show you how to get em
But learn to block a jab they’ll only knock you if you let ‘em
You can work until you’re greying but there’s always someone richer
And lift until you’re straining but there’s always someone bigger
So learn to count your blessings, try to see the bigger picture
You can’t run the streets forever cuz there’s always someone fitter.

CHORUS

VERSE 3:

Yo, I walk a narrow road that shapes the thoughts behind the words I write
Alone all in my zone my heart is feeling like the coldest night
I’m getting older right? I’m getting colder right?
It’s like I don’t care what you feel, long as I know my flows are tight
That ain’t completely right, integrity is honesty
Hate you to think I’m bitter and if so accept apology
Bare all like a nudist never been a fan of modesty
So even when I’m cruel at least you know I’m speaking honestly
Everybody’s fluent, just a few will listen properly
And everybody’s foolish that’s the problem with democracy
Telling me to vote, vote for what? I need a proper scheme
No human is superior though everybody wants to be
Yup, including me, why think I’m rapping?
Why you think I’m in this booth? Cuz if you wait then nothing happens
This song’s for everybody with a goal who’s trying to make it
And every single person with a dream who didn’t chase it.

CHORUS:

You kicked me when I was down, wouldn’t help me off the ground
You said I would never make it and I wouldn’t fit the crown but
Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!
We started at the bottom they thought we were gonna stop
So we’re working even harder till we make it to the top like
Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!

You kicked me when I was down, wouldn’t help me off the ground
You said I would never make it and I wouldn’t fit the crown but
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!
We started at the bottom they thought we were gonna stop
So we’re working even harder till we make it to the top like
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now baby!
(Ayyyyyy!) Chyea! Chyea! Look at me now!
