The owner
You ain't controlling me I'm the soul provider take hold of my destiny
The owner
Blessed with skills I possess effortless penning scribes to my last breath
The owner
Intellectual property there's no stopping me you must present properly
The owner
To have and belong independent mind state going above and beyond
The owner

Verse 1
Too long and too strong
I've been doing too much right to do wrong
I'm my own man stand on my own two
They want to deny me still I push through
Like tsunami the boy can't be stopped
Touching minds with my brand of hip hop
Still in tip top shape I rip mics great
Still intend my pen to move and elevate
Minds refined rewarded for my grind
You can say I'm the leader cause you're ten steps behind
I own mine and in my own mind
I've been rewarded for my struggle respected for my hustle
Don't have to flex a muscle you give what you get
And I write my own rhymes and sign my own checks
And don't forget ownership is the key
Y'all fools ain't running the okie doke on E cause I'm


Verse 2
Take action no slacking
I take pride in my work and word crafting
Most passions don't see the light of day
Listen to your inner voice forget what they got to say
No time for play take the bull by the horns
Lace up your kicks put on your uniform
You've been forewarned don't cross that line
You can have that over there over here is all mine
Try to take that I'm like Malcolm by the blinds
WIth a big black strap ready to tap Gregory Hines
Must do it myself so it gets done
Don't hesitate have faith if you wait you'll be late
Take time to create you can bend but don't break
Read between the lines must believe in your fate
Build on your estate and plan for the future
Being my own boss something I can get used to
