Standing Ovation Lyrics:

Why the desperate need for an applause?
I’ll wait
Is she the GOAT here well it’s safe to assume
Everybody panic when I step in the room
And I can feel that shit a mile off
Niggas is rapping about pieces
People are really dying is that what needed
I can’t save your soul you need Jesus
Tell me please
Why the desperate need to be remembered?
Everybody knowing what you’ve done
How far you’ve come
I’m guilty it’s a little self centred
People change when it’s about personal gain
I stay in my lane cos I’m not done with the checks
Give me what I deserve and not speak on the rest
Don’t know what has occurred then do not aimlessly guess
It’s a gift and a curse to this pretty and blessed

Blessed blessed blessed
So blessed
Used to plug that £20 mic into the back of the Mac Mac Mac
Just so you can hear my voice
Always knew this was my calling but I’m here by choice
And things change
Shit been dark for a minute I’m (blessed)
Delirious its hard to function on this winners time
Mouths to feed my nigga

Scripts to read my nigga
Double life living overseas my nigga shit
Left home for it
Jasmine just had a daughter man she’s so gorgeous
Told me life is giving life and I’m so for it
Maybe one day
Nothing’s more important and family’s where the love stays
Dealing with society’s pressures is one thing
Let alone all of the problems that funds bring
But no stress
Understand it comes with the process
I follow my intuition cause it knows best
Im so used to getting it on my own yes
Know my people wanna see me win
I’d never let you down
Standing ovation for the one who’s wearing the crown
I got royalty In my blood I was born great
Don’t allow anyone to undermine your fate

You’ve awoken the fearless
High beams and lucid dreams
Don’t be so obsessed with me
You think you know what’s best for me
Take my energy come to find there’s nothing left of me
Went from being small time to becoming my own entity
Went from being broke as fuck and trying to find identity
To buying the finer things isolating memories
What is it I’m meant to be

I think I need a standing ovation
Over 10 years in the game I been patient
God has always told me to be myself
Let go and free yourself
Tell the truth a shame Satan
Know I gotta pave the way for the next generation
That’s coming up under me and I love to see it
thought I was bluffing
Didn’t see it it coming
Hold up
Think this is cold you ain’t see nothing
The glow up
All the discussing
But I don’t let it distract me
Load the pen up cock it back and get to bussin
Standing up to who I make the scene lie down
Get it how I live it how it bees right now
I got another 20 in the shit I’m cemented
Take over businesses tell the kids start investing
We built the pyramids can’t you see what we are blessed with
From the hieroglyphics to the hood lyricist
Priest the Imams
The Good Books you live with
The Rumi quotes
The elder sisters
The tribal mantras
The jazz players
Holistic doctors
Spiritual teachers
Doers and the Dulas
The protectors and the rulers
The kids of the future
The immortal soldiers
And the fearless protesters
To the motivation speakers
And the honest black leaders
The divine healers
The everyday low paid believers
The overachievers in the shadow of the gate keepers

Came down to teach us

Blessed blessed blessed
Blessed blessed blessed

All these trophy’s in the crib got em sitting nice got em sitting nice (blessed blessed blessed)
After all the hard work that we put inside
Everybody claim to be boss but I’m a different kind
Hate it or love it we rise above it
