"Focus on Legacy Not Currency"

[Time]
When we were coming up we got approached by Jägermeister
They wanted to sponsor us cause our clout was getting nicer
We thought about it then we called them up and said no
Cause we didn't want to support selling poison at our shows
I made the decision not based off of religion
But based on my values and how I think I should be living
But 5 years later we got approached by a whisky brand
I wrote them a quick rap they put some cash in my hand
I forgot about my values and forgot about my ethics
Because I thought it would be a quick come up my logic was pathetic
Cause at the end of the day what you stood for matters
Not promoting poison for someone to p*ss out their bladder
When you're dying on your death bed what's your net score?
Cause even if you were rich you could be spiritually poor
I've disappointed myself but thank god I'm the current me
The one that knows to focus on legacy not currency

[Giuseppe]
I don’t want to live this way no more
Tell me how I got here?
Stacking all this paper but what for?
My legacies a nightmare
I can hear them shout a name, that isn’t mine
Snapping pictures with me, but the image I don’t recognize

[Time]
One of my heroes told me to stop talking about politics
He said make a party track sit back and get rich
He said the world's f*cked up, get money, you’ll never fix it
You'll just end up on some COINTELPRO hitlist
I said how could you even call yourself a pal of mine?
Telling me to sellout while thousands get shot in Palestine
I’m a white rapper, trying to fight white supremacy
Trying not to be a culture vulture, appropriating identity
What's a pop hit if Tamir Rice can't hear it?
Don't you know I got educated through hip hop lyrics?
I feel like I'm in the Handmaid's Tale, under his eye
Cause rappers are still homophobic, protect trans lives
I don't want to be on some Wells Fargo bank soundtrack
I just want the Standing Rock Sioux to get their ground back
I've disappointed myself but thank god I'm the current me
The one that knows to focus on legacy not currency
