Track Name: Don't Tell Me No - Feat. Shing02
So don't tell me no
Cuz Isn't this what you first said to me ?
Kind of ironic it's the same words sent to
everybody else sittin in the building
From the players to the managers, agents who were never willing
To take the time and let me say my piece,
it's always harder when you try to practice what you preach
On the daily never maybe always yes pushing forward
In this game of egomaniacs and blood thirsty lawyers
I been bitten few times never did the due time cuz I already
Worked the night shift
Clockin in with all the other throw away talent that you
never saw comin, the whole team runnin up the sideline
Blockin for me
Pick n roll give n go breaking through to the paint yes
And throwin down something that you never even dreamed of yo welcome to my show
So don't tell me no

You think I don't see the odds against me
That I always need someone to defend me?
Cuz I know that the game ain't the business man
So here's my business plan
When it's all said and done I did my research
Running so hard that my feet hurt
So take a quick sec and watch me grow, grab a seat here enjoy the show, so don't tell me no

So tell me yes you can do it
The big pic yeah, you can see it
Yup, you can make the time and be there to peep it
Can my people come and talk to your peeps
Every day is dues day, got paid without receipts
But on the flip side, say what you mean
Cuz I mean what I say, you know how I…
Don't waste a syllable on foreseeable troublesomes
But be genuine, and not false hospitable
I idolized rappers who can spit a quotable
Now kids harmonize with idols that are likable
The difference there is sizable like boots and baby shoes
Handful of issues and our fingers busy
Till the boys turn blue
Pay no mind to that noise
like you would be tight with your own wallet
Unless your mind is cheaper than a dollar
I can't call it, the it being the cousin that you forgot
So it doesn't make sense when you tell me no
What you on, what part of no do you really know
It only makes sense when you tell me yes
Let me guess, you've been dying to flex
So don't tell me no

You think I don't see the odds against me
That I always need someone to defend me?
Cuz I know that the business ain't the business man
so here's my business plan
When it's all said and done I did my research
Running so hard that my feet hurt
So take a quick sec and watch me grow
Grab a seat here enjoy the show, so don't tell me no

Don't tell me no
it's always easy trying to bring a man down
I guess you never opened up your ears to new sounds
Even though that's what it says your job description
Well doctor bean counter what is my prescription
What can I regurgitate to make the kids listen
And stop disengaging the messages that matter
in packages that purely just glisten in the lime light
But don't really give you what you need?
Man it's been a few years yea I shed a few tears
Cuz the grind will always take it's toll
But music is my universe it makes me whole
The craft that I will practice till I reach my goal
But never ending is the learning process
Even being at the top is only part of progress
And should I fall and find myself tumbling down
Best believe that I'll come right back around

You think I don't see the odds against me
That I always need someone to defend me?
Cuz I know that the business ain't the business man
so here's my business plan
When it's all said and done I did my research
Running so hard that my feet hurt
So take a quick sec and watch me grow
Grab a seat here enjoy the show, so don't tell me no
