Verse
Em Am7
Return of the Mack, get up! what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isnt
C
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
B
Instead of getting on the internet and checking a new hit
Em Am7
Get up! fresh out pimp strut walking, little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
C B
Somewhere between like rocky and cosby sweatergang nope nope yall cant copy
Em Am7 C
Yup. Bad, moonwalking, this here, is our party, my posses been on broadway,
B
And we did it, our way.
Em Am7 C
Grown music, I shed my skin and put my bones into everything I record to it
B
And yet Im on~
Em Am7 C B
Let that stage light go and shine on down, got that Bob Barker suit game and plinko in my style.
Em Am7
Money, stay on craft and stick around for those pounds,
C B
But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
Em Am7 C
Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler,
B Em Am7
Chasing dreams since I was 14 with the four track bussing halfway cross that city
C B
with the backpack, fat cat, crushing
Em
Labels out here,
Am7
Nah they cant tell me nothing
C
We give that to the people,
B
Spread it across the country
Em
Labels out here,

Nah they cant tell me nothing

We give it to the people,
B
Spread it across the country
(Chorus)
Em Am7
Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till its over
Em Am7
So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us

Em Am7
Can we go back, this is the moment

Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till its over

So we put our hands up like the ceiling cant hold us
C B

Verse 2 (Same Chord Structure)
Nah, can I kick it? thank you. yeah Im so damn grateful.
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts
But thats what you get when wu tang raised you
Yall cant stop me, go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And Im eating at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark week
Raw. Tell me go up. Gone!
deuces goodbye. I got a world to see, and my girl she wanna see Rome,
Ceasar make you a believer. nah I never ever did it for a throne.
that validation comes from giving it back to the people. nah sing a song and it goes like
Raise those hands, this is a party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me
If I fall, they got me then from that failure gain humility and then we keep marching ourselves
(Chorus)
Em Am7
na na na na na na na na
C B
ayiyayiyayiyayiyay

and all my people say

X4
Chorus
