"Who I Was"

[Verse 1]
(Yeah) I started out not knowing who I was
Tried to play blood, with n*ggas that were never around when I grew up
So instantly I felt different
I felt no connection, Wi-Fi disconnected
'Til I ran into my n*gga Jesse in Rodriguez class
Where you from bro?
I'm from Ghana, n*gga
For real? Me too
Let's get our sh*t together
We boys forever
Down to the letter
Join the football team, lacrosse, and field
That sh*t changed my life
Anybody on your team f*ck up you pay the price
Accountability and leadership opened my eyes
Made me the man I am
Everybody got they own opinion

[Chorus]
Sky's open, I was chosen
Never thought that I could make it here from who I was
Everybody's not the same, seasons change again
Things will never be the same, but I love you 'til the end

[Verse 2]
(Yeah) No food in the house
Mama working graveyard shift, so when she cook better believe we gonna' scrape the pan
She need a helping hand
No men in sight
I actually think about that sh*t a lot, hard to sleep at night
That's why I'm doin UPS overnight
GLBL VLLG in the day
Squeeze some time in to write these
A bunch of family over seas, but can't afford Chanel
I'm tryna' get my people free before the prison cell
They say the first angel from heaven came down and fell
So don't judge me when I'm smokin' weed and gettin' tail
What does this life entail? Nobody really knows
Everybody chasing' money, clothes, hoes, and goals
I always been Miyekow though
Peter was afraid and sometimes he didn't know
I done been from 8 draper driven' [?] Dover down to Austin, Texas
Thank God for all the blessings

[Chorus]
Sky's open, I was chosen
Never thought that I could make it here from who I was
Everybody's not the same, seasons change again
Things will never be the same, but I love you 'til the end

[Verse 3]
I used to wish and pray that I was different
So many of us gave up on society and this crooked system
Parents love us, but parents ain't listen
I don't fit inside a 9 to 5 or classroom setting
Hands start sweating, people all around me
Anxiety can make a n*gga fold like origami
Stuck inside my thoughts I found it hard to get them out me
Then I looked inside the mirror my ancestors found me

[Chorus]
Sky's open, I was chosen
Never thought that I could make it here from who I was
Everybody's not the same, seasons change again
Things will never be the same, but I love you 'til the end
