maintain


all a nigha know how to do is survive and maintain,
maintain and survive
you’d think that food stamps would be enough
to feed a family for the full month
but shit you’ll eat good for the first 3 weeks
last week gotta survive off school lunch, huh?
did some ill shit as a youngester
walk through grocery stores eating grapes like it’s a come up,
take what I need no receipt walking out like an O G,
keep trying to chase a dream
but nighas in the way like a goalie and
even though you scored a goal
does not mean you won the game
still gotta survive and maintain
