This song is by Cormega.

Life is a journey before I went the rap route
I serve niggaz off the bench like stack house
Goin' in with no intention to back down
My quote can't flow, solidified I spit crack now

You get consignment from my mental stash house
I'm back, droughts over fiends mouth foamin'
There's residue on the street my mics smokin'
Time to show these niggaz it's doe or die my eyes ain't closin'

Ever since I started rhymin' the crime rates lower
And I froze my watch 'cause time waits for no-one
Can fuck with NY when you think it's over
You stay comin' back like the Yanks with Hovers

I ain't livin' on the strength of no-one, controls my fate
I hold my weight and know my place
When I show my face it's all love
If not I say, fuck it, I don't mind hate

God all might I'm fallin'
The city never sleeps, look how tired New York is
Where I was born and raised is apart of ma aura
I'm too young to die, too old to try the corners

Truth be told I move weight before starvin'
Life has highs and lows like songs from Marvin
Police take lives and go free of all charges
Justice fucks us and conceives modest
So I open my eyes to the vision of Malcolm

I live for today yet I wish tomorrow
Is better than yesterday, don't exist no longer
I don't maintain, I elevate it, just go harder
With verses you sweat like a lyrical sauna

The message I am sendin' with the pen in my palm is
The hiatus is over, I have risen and conquered
Laugh now cry later, this is the karma
Hip hop never died, it's just sick of the drama

Apparently I realized my destiny's
To write about life in the street in it's complexities
In a city that never sleeps many dreams are never reached
I ain't afraid to fail if later it'll help succeed

I'm the same nigga but money changed everythin'
From location to patients, there's motivation for every scheme
Poetically I'm makin' a strong case concurrently
With the flow presently redefinin' my legacy

Life is purpose and goals, death is not doin' anythin'
Can be achieved if you believe eventually
