*Section of "Real Vision" by Trip Lee plays*
Hello? Aw, what's up, man? Yeah, I finna head to the studio right now, I just about to go to the store real quick, give me a energy drink. A'ight, then. I holla at you. Bye
Hey, playa! You wanna have some fun?
Nah, you just got the wrong one, man
Forget you, man
What's up, little brah, got some of that "grain grain"
How about you get these baggies right off me? Get your tight [?] around 'er
Nah, homie, I'm straight, you got that, man. I just wanted this energy drink
[?] You don't need no ZigZag, no Newport or something like that?
You just need this energy drink, with some Hennesy, you be a thug, dog. Aren't you getting your fifth, dog?
Nah, man. I got Jesus, man, I'm good
I got Jesus too, but Jesus and Hennesy don't go good together
*Sighs* Temptation away...
Aye look what's good fam it's me again The one you used to call your friend
I know you ain't forgot me?
Oh yeah you always get me caught in sin
Here you go with that again. You act like we ain't cool or sumthin
Lets go smoke a Kool or sumthin. Talk and sip a brew or sumthin
Naw man I ain't trusting you Ain't nothing but lust in you
Thanks be to God I obeyed the teaching I was entrusted to
Cause when you pass by you just want ya boy to backslide
Have me feeling sick like I'm coming down off a crack high
Man that's a flat lie you act like I'm the bad guy
You know when me and you get together we have a grand time
Lets take it back. All the way to like the 6th grade
Last thing on your mind back in the day was trying to live saved
Remember house parties, kissing in the dark?
Man that was innocent fun come on...
NOW don't start
See dawg I live by the Spirit so I don't gratify
All them old sinful desires that never satsify
Aye come on KILL THAT! Look me in my face and tell me I'm a lie
You ain't feeling chasing women, getting drunk, and getting high
Stacking money, staying fly, living up the playas life
We was having fun now gone try to be religious guy
Aye Yo man first of all LOWER YOUR VOICE! Who you talkin' to?
Handcuffed in August '02 I got caught with you
Truck flipped over on 35 that was all from you
I'll mess around and lose my life man tryna walk in you
I'm standing on these stages and got these people believing me
What I look like trying ta gratify this disease in me
So Now I'm a disease? Man please. I got yo back dawg
I ain't saying drop the Jesus and be a rap star
All Im saying is when it's you and me lets be real folk
We ain't gotta be selling drugs and tryna kill folk
Maybe just a lil...
What? A lil this, a lil that
A lil BET late at night, that's like a lil crack
See you ain't gone lie to me I see how you be tryna be
BET tonight becomes addiction to pornography
And that's in no way honoring the God who's ruling sovereignly
Man you know you miss them old days
Yeah you right possibly
But after that I sober up and think of Jesus holding up
His skin up on the cross for all them drunken nights I'm throwing up
Every thought of blowin up is captured in his flowing blood
I start thinking Philippians 4:8 when you showing up
You know I ain't gone quit right?
Yeah I know but I'm dead to you
And one day I'll be present with Jesus who died and bled from you
Colossians 1:15 thats the God that I trust in
The Father crushed Him In doing so he has crushed sin
