lyrics

You better (wake up) you've been sleeping too long,
I've been on the grind and you'll find I'm too strong,
Just (wake up), you've been asleep on the job
It's time to learn some manners cuz you act like a slob,
You better (wake up), I'm a tell you right now
It's a complicated world you better figure it out,
So just (wake up), no debate time to motivate
From Boston to Japan to the land of the Golden Gate.

Wake you up with a caffeinated rhythm, after each rhyme's been assassinated spit 'em opportunities are upon us go and get 'em, he claimed that he wanted to succeed but no one let him, learn a lesson or two about the pains and aches, build strength learn to ball don't make the same mistakes, a lot of people are sick of rap cause it's insanely fake, I've been walking through the jungle where it's mainly snakes, in the vocal booth I slay these takes, engaged to the microphone SAVE THE DATE, props to Edo G who paved the way for a Boston dude to do what I do today, and to all the weak emcees with nothing new to say, here's some inspiration for you to play, bang it in your whip see what your crew will say, it's time to salvage the career you almost threw away

You better (wake up) you've been sleeping too long,
I've been on the grind and you'll find I'm too strong,
Just (wake up), you've been asleep on the job
It's time to learn some manners cuz you act like a slob,
You better (wake up), I'm a tell you right now
It's a complicated world you better figure it out,
So just (wake up), no debate time to motivate
From Boston to Japan to the land of the Golden Gate.

You better wake up, You better wake up now (x2)

Whenever you try to get with me your egotism is equal to your stupidity, pop sticks get dropped quick, you're trying to eat soup with chopsticks? Edo's bigger, Edo's brighter, rappers got a spark of an underwater lighter, I'm a fighter in spite of the odds, amongst wrap gods I'm a writer, (wake up) cuz you're a little too sleepy, you realize that you'll never ever beat me, real life is unscripted, your one sandwich short of a picnic, we're teachers not brokers, made a killing on the stock market, killed our brokers, your year? It's our year, cake up to wake up it's Edo and Kabir yeah!

You better (wake up) you've been sleeping too long,
I've been on the grind and you'll find I'm too strong,
Just (wake up), you've been asleep on the job
It's time to learn some manners cuz you act like a slob,
You better (wake up), I'm a tell you right now
It's a complicated world you better figure it out,
So just (wake up), no debate time to motivate
From Boston to Japan to the land of the Golden Gate.
