I had to write this for Zeb who said he don't like new rap no more
And for those bloggers picking on that new Macklemore
See I ain't homies with him but I hope he helps my homie XP blow..
Is fame placebo?
Cuz you can be famous but still no one really knows you..
We all so isolated, still in sync tho..
Like my Bluetooth speaker, it's not Beats though..
Sorry I ain't copping Dre, but what's popping with Compton mane..
I had to write this the day before something new from the Doc? that's cray
16 bumping 2001 in my Ranger (Ford)..
Wasn't much but I had that job after school and I saved up
for the sub.. And I was loving it..
Installed at the Circuit City I believe
Back when Circuit Cities were a thing..
Yeah it was just me & my Visine and my high, and my Low End theorizing on the whys and hows

Forgive me
I had to
No alibi
I had to
No excuse
I had to had to
I'm guilty of the crime
Only God can judge me
But man will try

I had to write this for Smoke M2D6 with a kid on the way,
and all my friends who've already populated..
I heard it takes a village to raise them, and look -
I'm all the way out here in the sticks (I can't babysit)
I had to write this for my wife and cat..
we don't make all the decisions, are we alright with that?
For every conversation we've had.
Here's to many more..
We might never have this figured out, but I'm certain I adore you.
I had to write this for Katith -
Kate Margaret Brooke,
You took my heart but not my name and I'm okay with that
Cuz really nothing matters except the time I'm with you..
I mean you always been the mistress my first love was pursuit..
Of something unattainable..
You help me remain a whole
Hearted individual.
There's nothing I could say that would
Express appreciation on the level that I feel it in my core..
I had to write this to try, even though I know it fell short

Forgive me
I had to
No alibi
I had to
No excuse
I had to had to
I'm guilty of the crime
Only God can judge me
But man will try

I'm just gonna keep going.. I could stop
But what's a rampage with reasonable thought.. and good sense?
