Lyrics
Yeah, this right here is dedicated to
My family, my friends, my lady, everybody that held me down
(Shine a light on me, shine a light on me) especially the Lord, you know what I mean
Shine a light on me, shine a light on me
Y'all a bright light in my life, you feel me? (yeah yeah, ay)
Shine a light on me

Learned a lot over the last few years
Industry people ain't friends, just peers
I learned that these girls is easy like the morning of a Sunday
They don't love you until you gone like Harambe
Still killing over colors, now it's black and blue
We dyin' every day, B, we just don't make the news
When you speak up for your race just watch
They gon' twist and say you hate these cops, I'ma take these shots
How can he love Jesus, Kanye, and K Dot?
Martin, Malcolm, and Schaeffer, Mitsubishi, and Maybach?
Contradictory, nah, it's complimentary
Understanding me ain't for the simple and elementary
Oh, I know this might go over some heads
But I come from being government fed, could be running from feds
But now I give the government bread
'Cause you playing back the words that I said, that's crazy

I can't believe we made it through (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My momma say she ain't surprised, told me that she always knew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My day ones still the same ones, love to the crew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
I told my lady I ain't never met nobody like you (like you)
I thank you

Now I remember, uh, I was sittin' in my room
Glued to my television daily after school
And I never saw me going to college
Higher learning was a different world, I can acknowledge
I used to imagine being in a black Range
Gettin' paid from doin' this little rap thing
And now I'm paying these professors couple thousand for a lesson
Graduated in recession, Sally Mae just want a check and I'm stressin'
Rap music, it was all a dream
Now I'm in a session chasin' my dreams
Who woulda knew man, it's crazy
S1 introduced me to Jay-Z, never met my dad but I met the music that raised me
I know this might go over some heads
But I come from being government fed, could be running from feds
But now I give the government bread
'Cause you playing back the words that I said, that's crazy

I can't believe we made it through (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My momma say she ain't surprised, told me that she always knew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My day ones still the same ones, love to the crew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
I told my lady I ain't never met nobody like you (like you)
I thank you

Listen, I know God did it, can't take the credit
Paid off all of my debts but I still feel so indebted
Been all over the world with these songs I wrote
My life story oughta give y'all hope
Without a doubt I've been doubted and counted out
I've been down for the count, about to quit
Mama told me keep going, 'cause I was made for this
I either get a scholarship or I could get a hit
I still can't believe I made it here

I can't believe we made it through (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My momma say she ain't surprised, told me that she always knew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
My day ones still the same ones, love to the crew (yeah yeah, yeah yeah)
I told my lady I ain't never met nobody like you (like you)
I thank you

Shine a light on me, shine a light on me
Shine a light on me, shine a light on me
Yeah yeah, ay
Shine a light on me, shine a light on me
Shine a light on me, shine a light on me
