Better Late Than Never

[Verse 1]
A rough diamond in the place to be
You know it's the truth when I say it
'Cause it came from me
Chase the dream, hoe the money chasin' me
Every challenge is a lesson
Never face defeat
It's so strange that strangers are praising me
I'm exactly what these rappers are afraid to be
Got the X Factor, ain't no replacing me
I'm paid to speak, I'm therapy to crazy streets
Old school beats, all you hear is boom pop pop
It's about time to listen to Boom Shaka
I'm the guy that's bringing the groove papa
Shut up and sance, ska bolawa ke ho phapha
Hold up, wait a minute, running my own race
You know it's a marathon, you call it a slow pace
Smooth criminal, Annie are you okay
I snatched your heart
Loving the look on your face

[Chorus]
Face it, I'm gon face it
'Cause this race here is all my own
No hurdles could keep me low
Keep my focus on where I go
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma just do all I can do
To get all that is due
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right now

[Verse 2]
Oh what a life, I'm just tryna live it though
Everywhere you go, naysayers tryna limit yo
Bad and the good, I'm alive
Seen a bit of both
Money's okay but we wanna see a little growth
Celebrate life like a score without a fashion
Young black Africans with a lot of passion
We live the truth while these rappers still acting
Every girl is a bad bitch, politicians dabbing
Not tryna be J-Cole, K Dot, Drake
Real as they are, tryna beat them, I'm fake
That's my reality brother, I don't pump fake
Character's the same from Monday to Sunday
Yeah, the beauty of this life thing
We gotta go through it even if change is frightening
Okay outchea tryna do the right thing
But we can't escape the fact that we like things

[Chorus]
Face it, I'm gon face it
'Cause this race here is all my own
No hurdles could keep me low
Keep my focus on where I go
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma just do all I can do
To get all that is due
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right now

[Bridge]
Better bring guap home
Let me keep my butt home
But I gotta keep being everywhere but home
Sacrificed a lot man, used to be home
It's gon take a lot more just to keep on
I learned a lot more being unknown
I wish it came with lots more money to own
But I got a lot to be grateful for
And now I can't help but to want it all

[Chorus]
Face it, I'm gon face it
'Cause this race here is all my own
No hurdles could keep me low
Keep my focus on where I go
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right
I'mma just do all I can do
To get all that is due
I'mma get it right right now
Right now, I'mma live my life right now
