“So Much” lyrics x @VerseIDMG feat. @Jazz_LoudBerry

Verse 1

Walkin’ my road, closin’ in on my goal
Watchin’ my back it seems thirsty always on patrol.
Double shot of patron got me thinkin’ bout what i do it for?
Why I be bringin’ problems to God instead of Lucifer…
Do I believe I’m worthy of my name being spoken of?
Yeah but its more than conversation Sun I’m 30 plus.
Value is a must for that trust to ever grow,
Is them niggas standin’ wit you official? You only hope.
I seen plenty crews collapse ’cause cash ruled the actions. Strong nations broken off into factions.
Divided and conquered. Am I makin’ a difference at all? That be what I wonder.
They be sayin’ “you soft, only niggas winnin’ be rappin’ that raw.”
Never pitch it, but they’ll spit it like its trapped in they jaw, and it’s no diss to my dogs.
I know we all needin’ profit, my position risks it all like miners of blood diamonds but shit,
I can’t stop it.

Hook:
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.

V2
Walkin’ my road, know you hate it when I’m gone.
They be clawin’ at my soul, and I fight to keep control.
Amidst all of the pressure to tear up a happy home,
Give ‘em the cold shoulder, that’s only turnin’ ‘em on.
My homies tell me I’m wrong and I’m sprung. “Nigga you trippin’.”
They don’t eat what’s goin’ on in my kitchen; don’t see the movies we filmin’.
Tryin’ to give me a reason for intermission. Haters wanna see you slippin,
My mission, keep ‘em wishin’.
‘Cause somethin’ like you, only once in a blue moon, we’re headed for bluer skies.
When the sun rise, I’m grindin’ but you’re creepin’ in my mind again,
All the broken promises and lies. I’m just trying to do it right, I got rid of my disguise.
You got your enterprise, not reachin’ for mine.
But if needed, I know that I can come to you for advising.
Pac and Wale in the chamber with ambition we ride,
negativity be the fuel, we just take off and fly. Open your eyes.

Hook:
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.

V3
Walkin my road, just trying to carry my own.
And everybody’s is different, can’t judge you brother I live it.
That’s the reason I can say I think now I’m finally winnin’.
Cus the moves they prevented, they still come to fruition.
Everybody got a story, I pray for power to listen.
When the facts start conflictin’ and the shapes get to shiftin’,
that’s my cue to get to missin’. I refuse to be a victim of it.
They be stealin’ your time, get to robbin’ your drive.
Starin’ at your honor, I feel sorry for the mamas
straight to hell for the killer of Heaven, I call it karma.
But that’s the evil that I thought I defeated,
Cus people see me as a leader, but I’m far from completed.
If they’da told me I would see what I saw? I woulda laughed.
Got a chance to reach the masses could never take it for granted.
I don’t even try to plan it; I count it all as a blessing.
I don’t try to understand it; I just go where I’m commanded.

Hook:
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.
It’s so rough, it’s so tough. But so what, it means so much to me.
Never let you go, let you go.

Watch Young Guru and 9th Wonder Explain Why Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” Verse Was Such A Flawless Chess Move

By Insanul Ahmed

We should just say f**k it and give Young Guru his own column. (In case you don’t know, Guru is Jay Z’s engineer and right-hand man.) In the clip above, Guru and producer 9th Wonder discuss Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse. What makes the clip so great is Guru’s spot-on analysis about why the verse is such a flawless chess move.

As Guru points out, the barber shop conversations about rap usually revolve around how such and such rapper can’t A) Rap well enough or B) Sell records. But Kendrick has done both (We can’t repeat this stat enough times: Kendrick, Nicki Minaj, and Drake are the only “new” rappers who’ve gone platinum in the last five years) which gives him a unique position to push the genre forward in ways that were starting to seem unimaginable. Guru also touches on how polite Kendrick is in giving respect to the OGs like Jay Z and Nas as well as his rap buddies, but still finds the right maneuvers to challenge them all.

Hearing these guys talk about how clever the verse is touches on something that’s overlooked about this entire ordeal: Kendrick is essentially in the castle with a sword with no dragon to slay. The position that 9th and Guru describe him being in (a guy who can rap his a** off, sell records, has all the co-signs, and is in a popping crew) is unique in hip-hop’s current landscape. With no one to push him forward, maybe Kendrick is just looking for a challenge. Because there’s nothing worse than when you wake up in the morning, you look in the mirror, and all you see is your only opponent.
