Growing up, my only father was rap.
I used to switch out schools before I was even on track.
It taught me how to cope when I couldn’t fit in,
when you don’t stay in one spot there’s no value in Friends,
When I had my heart broken, I didn’t feel so alone,
If I had my headphones I was right at home.
When I used to get bullied and stayed up all night,
it gave me the inspiration to stand up and fight.
Never heard of white rappers until my friend Maurice,
burned me a copy of the first Eminem LP.
It almost felt like he wrote these songs for me.
I realized I could be anything that I wanted to be,
so I went to my room with a pen and a pad,
wrote down all the things I wanna say to my dad,
then right there, life didn’t seem so bad
cause I started countin’ all my marbles and
they started to add up.
