    Twenty years
    Twenty years ago
    Man I have been at this for twenty years
    Twenty years ago first show I was twenty years old
    Time flies I don't know where it goes
    Pulled up bumpin J through the speakers of a hoppdie
    Now it’s barricades and black SUVS
    Time flies when you're miserable
    First album was a CD now everything is digital
    Can't believe I lived through everything I've been through
    House filled with black dudes I slept in the living room
    Late night studio
    Rapping in the basement
    Missed out on my son as a kid didn't raise him
    Caught a few cases got locked up in state pen
    I remember Tamen was eight then.
    I was poor sleeping on the floor it’s depressing
    I knew I wanted more I guess it was a blessing
    Now I am writing album number four in the west wing

    Did a bunch of tours
    I can afford the best things
    I went from broke as a joke to rich as it gets
    I went from deadbeat dad to raising my kid
    I went from hell in a cell to be able to live
    went from poor to wealth and I hate this

    A Dollar and a Dream it ain't always what it seems
    So be careful what you wish for
    A Dollar and a Dream it ain't always what it seems
    be careful what you wish for

    Life long friends that will stab you in the back
    There the first ones that will ask for some cash I can't even talk to my Dad without his hand out
    I was least likely to succeed I’m the man now
    Ten cars in the polebarn I don't even drive
    Four wheelers dirt bikes I don't even ride
    I just sit in this chair, blank stare look outside
    That’s a hell of a price to pay for this life
    Matter fact you know I've been to hell and back twice
    Angels stuck by my side that I should have made my wife
    But I spend all my time online looking at pictures of instagram models thats my addiction
    Fly em out give em free this aint free
    Stay up all night lose sleep get what I need Its a disease you ain't paying them to stay you paying them to leave

    A Dollar and a Dream it ain't always what it seems
    So be careful what you wish for
    A Dollar and a Dream it ain't always what it seems
    be careful what you wish for

    All I see is unfamiliar faces
    Did my song racism thought I wouldnt say it
    On tour California called me racist
    Boycotted shows tryin to keep me off stages
    I just keep my middle finger in the air
    I’m the reason that I'm here are we clear
    Your in the rearview I can't even hear you
    Double what I did in year one and year two
    So here's to
    Never being satisfied, always feeling sad inside
    Tell me whose down to ride feelin like a homicide
    Always gonna speak my mind
    At Least I tell the truth, tell me why you always lie.

    Im done man, i'm not good with this sad rap
    That's just how I feel It's like
    a dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
    It's like a dollar and a dream it ain't always what it seems
    Be careful what you wish for
