Artist: Big K.R.I.T. Album: Return of 4Eva Song: Dreamin' Typed by: firstname.lastname@example.org [Big K.R.I.T.] Old school flow Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo They used to say They used to say This rap shit [Chorus: 2X] They used to say "he's dreamin'" They used to say "he's dreamin'" This rap shit "is not for real" This rap shit "is not for real" [Big K.R.I.T.] Yeah, I remember it so clearly Rapping to my pop about the cars and the clothes, shrimp and the lobster that I heard about, like word of mouth That UGK tape and Scarface will turn ya out I was like thirteen, thirsting for a good beat Scoping for a studio, talking bout I spit heat like 'Ball and 'G, on that pimp tight shit Three 6 had me crunk on that late night tip, they said [Chorus: 2X] [Big K.R.I.T.] Yo, yo, yo, I played ball for a minute, did I mention? Wasn't in it Writing rhymes on my glove so I will never forget 'em Had to quit it, didn't feel it back in high school Rather write poems, known for flowing, that's what I do Couldn't be Little Zach forever, peace to my big brother Follow ya dreams baby, that's word to my grandmother Well I hit the streets, tapping out beats, kicking my flow I overhear the same shit they always said befo', that he's [Chorus: 2X] [Big K.R.I.T.] I told 'em call me K.R.I.T., they told me change my name Don't be alarmed if you don't make it, that's just part of the game Besides, I ain't rap about dope, nor did I sell it I guess the story of a country boy just ain't compelling A&Rs searching for a hit, I just need a meal Couldn't afford to pay the rent, but passed up on a deal cause, it wasn't right, sometimes you gotta wade the storm In a class of my own, but I was scared to raise my arm like, this my dream, this my life, I'll sacrifice it all except my soul, in the firm belief there is a God watching out, when all the others used to doubt felt my pain and pointed down and said, son your time is now I think my grandma pulled some strings on the low but that's between her and the Lord, I'll never know For those that caught me in the Spin and Complex magazine XXL, the Vibe and whatever in-between It's safe to say that dreams come true I guess Don't let nobody tell ya, try for yourself Just know that I was once considered just a dreamer but I paid my dues and turned so many doubters to believers They used to say They used to say They used to say They used to say "He's dreamin' He's dreamin' Is not for real Is not for real" [Outro] "I don't care if it is a dream I've got to believe in something, my love What can I do? What have I got to lose? You know sometimes dreams do come true Might as well be a dream, dream, dream, dream"
