"2011 BET Hip Hop Award Acceptance Speech"


My acceptance speech, what I won't do is try preach
What I won't do is assume I'm smarter than you and try to teach
What I will do is set an example, inspire you to reach for the stars beyond mars that space bars can't delete
Because without a dream fulfilled your life's incomplete
A hearst, a limousine without a backseat,
The worst, think Usain Bolt without feet
Real life ain't Hollywood, it's Halloween
Every day is trick or treat
It ain't a red carpet it's a sidewalk bloody from the wolves eating red meat
And these spotlights don't come with money they come with police
Millionaires cry about raising taxes on the elite
They won't feed us, as they'd rather defeat us, like an aborted fetus
But your greatest feat is to get back up on your feet
Did I mention, life ain't a sprint it's a marathon
Really stressful on your tendons and with the shape the economy is in today, you better run to the polls like skinny Kenyans
26 miles in two hours and three minutes
It wasn't weeks or months, it took us over 400 years to raise the debt limit
So don't lose faith, there's a sweet life out there and one day you will taste
But just like any marathon, you must monitor your pace
And watch out for the haters pushing drinks up in your face
Maintain your focus through the ups and downs the arguments and debates
And when you win your award, make sure you put in a safe place
And be prepared for whatever... just in case.
