Solemnly
Spoken Word Intro: They say a measure of a man is determined by his character. The way he carries himself
through intense situations and how he prevails... Soul intact through those situations, Life was never
promised to be easy. Some people take the road less traveled. Others fall off the road mid trip. But as I stand
here before you as a man, I promise I will not falter, no matter how dark the days might get. I solemnly swear as
a man. I will prevail.
Verse 1: uh yea/from the bottom to the top/rolling on this road/I noticed knowledge means a lot/yea and my
mind’s been through a lot/ how to keep it cool?/ when the pressure’s rising to the top/make moves that are
smooth/just like a don dada/I keep myself intact/my business is so proper/respect is the key/so I live with this
honor/live right within myself/ and be a show stopper/na na I’m being told I’m on the path to greatness/but
niggas in my hindsight can’t seem to take this/they wanna slow me down/make me outrageous/and bug me
out/till my face is up in the papers/but as I stand the man that I am/Never will allow this/not part of my prowess/
continue living childish/I’ll be of the outcome/good looking out brah/this is what I stand for
Hook 2x: I solemnly swear to keep my head up, Reared up in this time of despair
I solemnly swear to keep my game tight day and night, with my fist in the air
I solemnly swear to let my words speak real deep, never fall for defeat, Peep
I solemnly swear to keep myself growing lord knowing I was bred in the street
Verse 2: on my yellow brick road/I know you gotta know/that there aint shit owed/to ya/ I’m looking forward to
the future/ we all know poverty blows/like a tuba/yea and fuck off with the rumors/cause truthfully being broke
hurts like a tumor!!/thank god I’ve been blessed with a hustler’s sprit/the mind of a general in this modern
prison/you gotta to be kidding if you think I’ll ease back/go hard or go home/you best believe that/ no cowards
over here I trust you see that/ the fire in my eyes/is 100 degrees flat/now that I got all eyes on my agenda/I’ll
have you remember/I’m a public defender/here to represent ya/never gonna pretend to/so all my real niggas plea
se front and center/

Hook 2x: I solemnly swear to keep my head up, Reared up in this time of despair
I solemnly swear to keep my game tight day and night, with my fist in the air
I solemnly swear to let my words speak real deep, never fall for defeat, Peep
I solemnly swear to keep myself growing lord knowing I was bred in the street
