ooooh mm hmm

la la la la da da (2ce)

Good evening ladies n gentlemen I go by the name of eLDee the don

and I just wanna say thank you for buying the album, for supporting me through my career,

for supporting Nigerian music. I appreciate you…yeah…a little boy had a dream..listen..

Verse 1

I was 13 mic on trying to kick a better flow

all night lights on, mama couldn’t hear me though

tape deck overdub just to get my ad-libs

battling my boys on the block for some practice

mix tapes, high school, got my reputation

dreamt about the days I’d be getting heavy rotation

Unilag, last choice, higher education

weak songs on the radio was motivation

huh..Mama wasn’t really excited

but i aced every school class I was provided

left her with no choice, plus I had a dope voice

so she put some money up, just so I could turn it up

a little louder, made her a little prouder

she paid for the studio, made me a founder

Trybe Records was born, it started as a dream

its been a long time coming, shit is never why it seems though

Chorus

If you could see what Ive seen, been to places Ive been,

take a walk in shoes, and know what its like to be me..

its been a long time, oh yeah we made it

i Know its been a while, thank God we made it

Verse 2

Then it was Trybesmen shake bodi, couldn’t really make money

but we made some hits though, brothers had a sick flow

sold tapes outta my trunk, couldn’t get a slam dunk

no distribution, we were getting punked

trips to Alaba tryna have it all make sense

aaw men, that was intense

I created the paper-pack to make some paper back

cos I figured it would work tryna get us on the map

soon enough brothers had to go their own way

everybody steady tryna make their own pay

it was his fault, yeah thats what they’re gon’ say

but God knows best, so I don’t stress

moving on I took a trip to Atlanta, to figure how to lace my bread with some planta

and yeah I aced that, but then I got bored

right guy in the wrong place, on the wrong board

I figured I should follow my dreams and go back to my roots, go back to my truth

If I could do it all again, it’d be the same thing, run it back, no regrets, do the same thing

Chorus

If you could see what Ive seen, been to places Ive been,

take a walk in shoes, and know what its like to be me..

its been a long time, oh yeah we made it

i know its been a while, thank God we made it

Verse3

Now… ’08 bosi gbangba made some big boys

yeah he back now, tryna make some big noise

but they held back, like i was a new cat

I said I was a pioneer, I still had to prove that

somehow I motivated every one of them

they’re eating, they don’t know how it got in front of them

but I aint trippin, Im just tryna get in front of them

soon enough top 3, see that I am one of them

collab-collabo, show em that Im a beast

my versatility competition doesn’t exist

they wanna hear me rap more, spit a couple bars

I rap, I sing, Im a superstar

Chorus

If you could see what Ive seen, been to places Ive been,

take a walk in shoes, and know what its like to be me..

its been a long time, oh yeah we made it

i Know its been a while, thank God we made it

Outro
