Lyrics “The Marathon Continues” – J Stone

Either you gon’ fold
Or step up to the plate
When it’s your time to bat
You show them that you great
Life is what you make it
I hope you make movement
I hope your opportunity
Survives the opportunistDreams, Goals, Aspirations
Dedicated, f**k how long it takes
We never waited, we elevated
Thought we was gon stop, we accelerated
Through all the ups and downs we been
Through at least we made it
Jealous n**gas hated and the police raided
Took a n**ga from the block to the police station
We wrote it all down, n**ga we mapped it out
N**gas jealous cause they wanna rap, what’s that about
N**gas wanna bang for the clout, what’s that about
Been from the gang, it’s some s**t I never rap about
Just some young n**gas trying to make it out
On the road to riches, they was lost, we had a paper route
Damn I wish Nip and Fatts was here
How y’all die at 30 something after banging all them years
You know what we live by, n**ga we ain’t had no fear
All this money, power, fame, still can’t make y’all reappear
Somehow I’ma keep this Marathon going
I know now it’s on me plus I’m God’s chosen
I know it’s a lot of n**gas not going
Just like I know it’s a lot of trey’s that’s not rollin’
Both of y’all told me, keep this s**t flowing
Who the f**k you thought gon keep this s**t going
Me, Cobby, Pacman, Black Sam
Cuzzy Capone, Killatwan, BH and A Down
Hoggy left some blue faces in your casket
Adam left you a backwood rolled hella fat
I left a blue rag and an All Money In hat
YG poured an ace of spades, I poured cliquéWe took you through the whole LA it was NIP day
Obama wrote you a letter, what more can I say
Stevie sang at your funeral n**ga you the great
The Marathon Continues that’s what you would say
So look hold on hold on one second
I’ma tell you something about me and this n**ga J Stone
We used to sell fake dope, real s**t
Just so we get our little 2 to 15 weed sacks
And go back to the studio and make records
I used to be this n**ga engineer on Monday and he’ll rap
He’d be my engineer on Tuesday and I’ll rap
I’m just saying, staying down and hard work can go a long way
Make some noise for my n**ga one more time
Aye now listen, Salute…
