"Back & More"


[Intro:]
Everybody get ya hands up high
Feel me right now put ya hands up high
Everybody in the buildin' get ya hands up high
And if you wanna touch the sky then let me hear you say
La, la, la la la, let me hear you say, la, la, la la la la
Well let me hear you say la, la, la la la let me hear you say
La, la, la la la (uh), la, la

[Verse 1 - QuESt:]
My mother birthed me September 2nd of 1990
Raised me in Miami, throughout the struggles, she loved me blindly
Treated me kindly, had arguments, put it all behind me
Kicked me out and let me come back whenever my luck was grimy
Uh, she never had to do that
Gave me a place to stay when times were grey, and had to pull back
No matter the disrespect, that I project
To a son that she would not neglect
Throughout the stress, she still found another way to protect the nest
I met with Ice in 2005
Only nigga cuttin' sample instrumentals, I tried
To write to every single one, that he threw my way
Recording for hours, was never bothered when I would stay
We used to drive to Power 96, and meet with DJ Fingerprints
Like this the realist shit, and that's what we had convinced
Supply me with equipment, to follow my intuition
His dedication was given, whenever mine was slippin'
And to my circle. Smaller than Cheerios
I contemplate the journey, how much we would fear to go
Beyond the distance
My loved ones, cherishin' with a passion
Without you I know I'm nothin', my gratitude's everlastin'
Whenever I'm discouraged or think about quittin' rappin'
I remind myself for ya'll man that none of this could have happened
Without you by my side
And I promise and swear to God
That in the end I'll make it up and we take this shit to the sky

[Hook:]
And I'm thankful for the life and times
Of one's grind
Never will you leave my call
I'm a make it up in time
Every night
I will give it back and more

[Bridge:]
Every dollar, every cent, until it's all paid back
'Til we chillin' on a million in the cut laid back
On my momma and you know that I don't ever say that
On my momma and you know that I don't ever say that
I'm a pay you back

[Verse 2 - QuESt:]
Uh, YNG been my brother since I was sixteen
Held me down through the craziness off the strength of my 16s
The first to say that I was the greatest, I was the greatest
Would drive me out to open mics just to openly state it
A little nigga roamin' tryin' to do what he can
He always told me "You gotta move like you know you the man"
Role of a father figure, always sought to keep me in check
Still, he built me with confidence whenever life was a threat
Would play my records at his barbershop proudly like I was signed
Could never understand what was goin' on in his mind
I guess he was blind
Faith in my talent, he saw the sign before I even caught a glimpse, and it's only matters of time before you make it
Uh, that's why I call you the greatest
No doubt about it, I mean it
Otherwise I wouldn't say it
You never doubted
Even when my vision was clouded, you knew my purpose was greater
You always pushed me to [?] it

[Hook:]
And I'm thankful for the life and times
Of one's grind
Never will you leave my call
I'm a make it up in time
Every night
I will give it back and more

[Bridge:]
Every dollar, every cent, until it's all paid back
'Til we chillin' on a million in the cut laid back
On my momma and you know that I don't ever say that
On my momma and you know that I don't ever say that
I'm a pay you back
Everybody get ya hands up high
Feel me right now put ya hands up high
Everybody in the buildin' get ya hands up high
And if you wanna touch the sky then let me hear you say
La, la, la la la, let me hear you say, la, la, la la la la
Well let me hear you say la, la, la la la let me hear you say
La, la, la la la (uh), la, la

[Verse 3 - QuESt:]
Uh, my homie Noah used to pray for me daily like it was routine
Spiritual advisor, one always got me through mood swings
Laughed together, good times
Truly opened my eyes
To keep the Lord in my endeavors, and never put him aside
Cassandra stayed beside me through thick and thin
Was there when it started, I pray she's there when it's gonna end
You're more than my lover, consider you as my only friend
Motivation to push beyond the boundaries and look within
When I was on my last dollar back at my momma's dealin' with drama
Afraid to ask for help, you would come around and I ponder
"Why the hell would you stay, when shit was goin' astray?"
You said "We'll stick through the storm, enjoy the brightest of days."
You know I need that
Oh yeah, you know I need that
From then and there I made a promise to believe that
Anything is possible to get through
'Long as I got you with me, I'm ready for any issue
I appreciate the spirit, I hope I'm makin' it crystal
I'm forever in your debt, your assistance, I never misuse
Keepin' me alive through your love, I have learned to strive
It's a blessing to say I have you, I hope you keep by my side
Forever
Forever
Forever ever? Forever ever?
Forever
Forever ever? Forever ever?

[Hook:]
And I'm thankful for the life and times
Of one's grind
Never will you leave my call
I'm a make it up in time
Every night
I will give it back and more
