lyrics

INTRO
Granddad:
Let me go back and tell you what they did
before the hip-hop community came on the scene
they had, they call it rhythm and blues

Keon Supreme:
'Cause I feel like you got a lot of wisdom and you got a lot of knowledge and I look up to you Granddad

Granddad:
Well I got it son, I got that wisdom

VERSE 1
Be Still man we always moving
it's like we in a rush and don't know what the hell we doing
Lets slow it down, I got dreams i'm pursuing
This is an open invitation to the greatest movement
that you will ever see
dedicated to the ones that came before you and me
so hopefully, when they're gone
their legacy can live on
be strong, you not alone, I can feel it too
there's something going on in the world
but we can make it through

Because as a generation we have more opportunities than any other group of people has ever had on this Earth. So with that being said, we're obligated to do better than our parents, and their parents, and their parents, and so on.... you feel me?

OUTRO
Granddad:
I'm not saying that I will be able to do it but i'm hoping you have the strength to do it. I came from a town, I never had the opportunities that you had. In my enviroment the racism chewed me up but you have this opportunity to do this thing. i never got over that yet, that's the main thing. It's still there. There's a certain amount of discomfort I have and that's wrong. Because I was dehumanized, I was not made to feel like a human. You can't go through life, it's hard enough to get out there and try to make a living. But when you got to get out there and face racism. The situation is similar right now but the thing that you have going for you.. 'cause you have a talent. That's my whole idea and like.. you being a man, you have your goal, you have a goal set, work towards that goal, stick to that goal, and give it your best shop. And another thing watch who you associate with. Bad association can have a bad influence on you. Just pick your friends. So you gonnna have a lot of difficult times but don't let it throw you. You have to get up and keep going. That's what life is, life is pain. Sound good to you?
