                        Wakanda is what we called Our Father in heaven before the evil devil came on shores, it means Great Spirit (The Highest) simple as that

                              The instrumental is produced by Freddie Joachim. It is called Waves. I don't know why they didn't at least put that in the description. Joey Badass gave credit when he used it

                                  Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
                                  Be like this, be like this
                                  Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this

                                  [Verse 1]
                                  Yeah, life is a balance
                                  You lose your grip, you can slip into an abyss
                                  No doubt, you see these niggas trippin'
                                  Ego in charge of every move, he's a star
                                  And we can't look away due to the days that he caught our hearts
                                  He's fallin' apart, but we deny it
                                  Justifying that half ass shit he dropped, we always buy it
                                  When he tell us he a genius but it's clearer lately
                                  It's been hard for him to look into the mirror lately
                                  There was a time when this nigga was my hero, maybe
                                  That's the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take
                                  'Cause I believed him when he said his shit was purer and he
                                  The type of nigga swear he real but all around him's fake
                                  The women, the dickriders, you know, the yes men
                                  Nobody with the balls to say somethin' to contest him
                                  So he grows out of control
                                  Into the person that he truly was all along, it's startin' to show
                                  Damn, wonder what happened
                                  Maybe it's my fault for idolizin' niggas
                                  Based off the words they be rappin'
                                  But come to find out, these niggas don't even write they shit
                                  Hear some new style bubblin' up, then they bite this shit
                                  Damn, that's what I get for lyin' to myself
                                  Well, fuck it, what's more important is he's cryin' out for help
                                  While the world's eggin' him on, I'm beggin' him to stop it
                                  Playin' his old shit, knowin' he won't top it

                                  Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
                                  Be like this, be like this
                                  Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
                                  False prophets (La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la…)

                                  [Verse 2]
                                  I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad
                                  He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that's been had
                                  By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin'
                                  Talkin' 'bout, niggas don't fuck with him, this shit is depressin'
                                  And I know he so bitter he can't see his own blessings
                                  Goddamn, nigga, you too blind to see you got fans, nigga
                                  And a platform to make a classic rap song
                                  To change a nigga's life, but you too anxious livin' life
                                  Always worried 'bout the critics who ain't ever fuckin' did it
                                  I write what's in my heart, don't give a fuck who fuckin' with it
                                  But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great
                                  Turns into an obsession and keeps a nigga up late
                                  Writin' words, hopin' people observe the dedication
                                  That stirs in you constantly, but intentions get blurred
                                  Do I do it for the love of the music or is there more to me?
                                  Do I want these niggas to worship me?

                                  [Verse 3]
                                  These rappers insecure
                                  They talk about being a man so much
                                  I finally understand that they ain't even sure
                                  'Bout who they are and why they do this
                                  Guess I'm included in that category as a nigga who done had the glory
                                  My highest moments come from tellin' all the saddest stories
                                  I've seen in my life, I be fiendin' to write
                                  Songs that raise the hair on my arms
                                  My lowest moments came from tryin' too hard
                                  To impress some niggas that couldn't care if I'm on
                                  Therefore from here on out, my hair grow out
                                  I care nothin' 'bout opinions
                                  I wanna give hope like the fountains you throw pennies in
                                  Hit the store, take your diss, make your wish
                                  This is dedicated to the ones that listen to me on some faithful shit
                                  I'm on some thankful shit
                                  But the real God is in you, not the music you coppin'
                                  I hear my old shit and know I can top it

I swear J Cole is the real hero, his music makes you motivated forever and I cried when I heard his 2nd verse, yeah I'm a homie thats a rapper and wants to win bad, J Cole forever and Dreamville
