And, it's my year right now
Everybody that's important to me, here right now
Spit the sh*t that the world need to hear right now
And, all the lil girls in high school could feel right now
Uh, I took a break from rappin, just to focus on my health
Was really in the gym, I had to focus on myself
How could you blame me for being human? I'm only me
Word is bond, Imma make it, and you gon' see
What you gon' do when you see me up on your television?
Lexii, the hottest in the city, what they fail to mention
Even though I don't need nobody to stamp me
Plan A gon' work, f*ck a plan B
Say she f*ckin' with Lexii, but nah, she can't be
Blind to the bullsh*t, like I can't see
And, I been working on this mixtape
And, at the same time, I been out here tryna get my sh*t straight
Yeah, tryna get my sh*t straight
Same time I been working on a mixtape
Lil Lexii got a big plate
