Mayze is the greatest of our generation
To do it, and he's making...history
That's all I wanna do
Spending every single minute in booth
How the hell are you gonna tell me reach for the sky
When I know I can land on the moon

Trust me, when I wrote this, I was in the studio at night
Tryna make a record that would be a hit
Then I listened to it, and saw I wasn't even saying shit
But the beat is banging, the chorus was way more than sick
But I know I'm doper, I'm a poet, so now I'mma open my soul
And you can accept, it don't matter
Yo I'm tryna change the pattern
Of the way people are doing this music, its useless
If everyone is the same, I'm really tryna go and change
Dedication by Mayze

At first steps of his music career, he was tryna be a typical rapper. Just a dope ass beat, and a repetitive catchy chorus for everyone to listen to. But he realized that his tracks had no messages for people to grasp, and he knows he’s better than that. He knows if he expresses his views and experiences others will relate with him and establish a better connection with the artist.

You just wanna have sex, I know you don't love her
And you hate your pops cuz he left your momma
When you was so young, and you never saw him
And you promised that you would be better father
Til' the rubba broke, and now you really got a
Kid in your hand, you gon' stay and provide?
Or leave him behind?

They say don't sleep, go complete your mission
They say to chase your dreams, what a contradiction
Dedication by Mayze

As I lay back and put 2Pac on the speakers
I let my thoughts float and drift away and now I see it clearer
I stand up, and I take a glance at the mirror
To figure who I really am and why I never hear a
Response to my prayers, nothing phases me
God is the only thing I'll ever have a fear of
Dedication by Mayze

This is him struggling to figure out who he is as a person. As he listens to music, he can see the world vividly painted in front him. He fears God, because he notices all the negatives and questions why his prayers to get rid of them give him no feedback.
