Old school flow
Yo, yo, yo, yo

They used to say
They used to say
This rap shit

[Hook]
They used to say (He’s dreamin)
They used to say (He’s dreamin)
This rap shit (is not for real)
This rap shit (is not for real)


They used to say (He’s dreamin)
They used to say (He’s dreamin)
This rap shit (is not for real)
This rap shit (is not for real)


[Big K.R.I.T - Verse 1]
Yeah I remember it so clearly
Rappin’ to my pop about the cars and the clothes
Shrimp and the lobster that I heard about

Like word of mouth
The UGK tape and Scarface will turn ya out
I was like 13 thirsting for a good beat
Scoping for a studio talkin’ bout I spit heat
Like Ball & G, on that pimp type shit
Three 6 had me crunk on that late night tip

[Hook]

[Big K.R.I.T - Verse 2]
I played ball for a minute, did I mention wasn’t in it
Writing rhymes on my glove so I will never forget em

Had to quit it, didn’t feel it back in high school
Rather write poems, known for flowing, thats what I do
Couldn’t be little Zac forever, peace to my big brother
Follow ya dreams baby, thats word to my grandmother
When I hear the streets tappin’, my beats kickin’ my flow
I overhear the same shit they always say before (he’s dreaming)

[Hook]

[Big K.R.I.T - Verse 3]
I told them call me KRIT, they told me change my name
Don’t be alarmed if you don’t make it, thats just part of the game
Besides I ain't rapping about dope nor did I sell it
I guess the story of a country boy just ain't compelling

A&R’s searching for a hit, I just need a meal
Couldn’t afford to pay the rent, but passed up on the deal

Cause, it wasn’t right sometimes you gotta wade the storm
In a class of my own, but I was scared to raise my arm

Like, this my dream, this my life, I sacrificed it all
Except my soul in the firm belief there is a God

Watching out, when all the others used to doubt
Felt my pain and pointed down and said “Son, your time is now”

I think my grandma pulled some strings on the low
Thats between her and the lord I’ll never know

For those that caught me in the Spin, in Complex magazine, XXL, the Vibe and whatever inbetween
It’s safe to say that dreams come true I guess

Don’t let nobody tell ya, try for yourself
Just know that I was once considered just a dreamer
But I paid my dues and turned so many doubters to believers

They used to say
They used to say
They used to say
They used to say


[Hook]
He’s dreamin, he’s dreamin, it’s not for real, it's not for real
He’s dreamin, he’s dreamin, it’s not for real, it's not for real

[Outro]

I don’t care if it is a dream I’ve got to believe in something I love
What can I do, what have I got to lose
You know sometimes dreams do come true
Might as well be a dream, dream, dream
