I was waitin’ I was waitin’ for my moment,
Didn’t know I had to take it had to own it.
They tried to tell me I’d be nothing in this lifetime,
Boy they tell me that shit fueled me that’s my lifeline.
I done came along way (way, way)
And think that imma stay (stay, stay)
They said I’d never make it never had the chance to
Until I gave the people something they could dance to
They put me up in shackles tied up all my hand too,
Now I’m the fuckin man go and tell ya mans too
I said that I would give it to em,
I seen my nigga straight get shot up in my living room
UH! And sometimes it make me really mad,
But still stay above the water like a lily pad
Sometimes it’s lookin hopeless,
And when it’s gettin blurry I just go adjust my focus
Everybody listening to the lyrics that I wrote,
They through me into jail and yet my spirit never broke (nah)
(Ha Ha) and they relatin they relatin,
They ask if I’m the best now they debatin they debatin,
And all the cops was always steady hatin steady hatin,
I had to take this moment I been waitin I been waitin
Now I’m lookin back at times when I was barely even known,
And then I turned around and turned this chair into a throne
So when you hear my name know it’s been listed in glory,
I sat and watched the the media just twisted the story,
I guess they needed ratings though to them it’s imperative,
They got to use my name so they could switch up the narrative,
But that Okay, that’s Okay, that’s Okay,
I done put in work and y’all know Kay y’all know Kay
My heart is colder than a hailstone,
I hated talking to my parents from a jail phone
But I don’t wanna feel the hate no more,
I hate to take my moment I ain’t wanna wait no more
