The Beat (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjDh7mVyCHU&index=6&list=PLmbE8XjrPTKFQLrwvVd_4s35E8nTf2yqp)

Lyrics:

What's a penny to a thought if I could put a dollar to a dream?
Spraying up dollar signs and I'm tagging "Fiend"
I ain't one for the crime life, nah, that life is mean
But if you want a laced loosie then I'll load it up with weed
I'm pressing barrels to my temple and I'm loading up lead
Big B's, 6 letters, you won't even see me dead
I'm throwing ashes in rivers,
Kids are killing their livers
You can rap C.R.E.A.M all you want but it ain't stopping the dealers
It ain't stopping the sinners from sinning
Ain't winners, we winning
Big mirrors, we billing, cuz we can't stand looks we're given
Killing ourselves for those taxing looks
Evading windows outside cuz we can't stand crooks
We all started with nothing but a childish dream
And now we're all grown up and still don't have green
We all ate greens from those plates on the table
But our state will still label all our states unstable

And what's righteousness if we ain't got nothing?
And what's right? And what's right?

And what's right in a life where it's our dreams you're crushing
Getting on knees, not for bees, cuz you ain't blushing
Wishing it was all for real, you see, we ain't touching
Don't got museum riches and in God we're trusting
Some praying every day and night
No lights, just blind.
Got no sight just got to keep in mind the surroundings
All drowning in this ocean, ears pounding,
And we're waking up on these mattresses, every spring is tough.
Cuz we can't afford averages
Savaging balances for damages
Just care about keeping up statuses
And we're fools for managing a fake ass image
Who gives a shit bout reputation when it's life we're not living?

And what's righteousness if you ain't got nothing?
And what's right? And what's right?

Cop a yoyo for christmas but got no strings attached
Bitches acting like they loyal, like they friends, till they stabbing backs
Dull knives, you don't even fucking notice em
Hiding in the waist bands until you fully focusing
But by then it's too late, bleeding out on cold streets
And you're hoping its the haze and you're lying on cold sheets
Hallucinations that you're fucking seeing
But it's because of reality that you're fucking reefing
No peeking, no previews, just gas leaking
And we're covering bullet holes
Standing up and speaking
Sampling beats and working off keyboards
Wishing for control or options
And not washing the seaboard
Wishing that ideas would strike me like a mean Thor,
but the storm ain't coming so I'm stuck here begging, "Please Lord?"

And what's righteousness when we ain't got nothing?
And what's right? And what's right?

I mean just because we're able
Don't mean we're setting tables
Good life is a fable
And happy endings unstable
Cuz good life is painful,
We're left looking at angels
But angels to us are faces from under navels
Copping no wings, playing cat's cradle
Tying us with strings till we're puppets, minds stable
Fully fucking num
It isn't just from sipping rum
Betsy living but it's just like living in the slums
All bums dropping outta school, all dumb
Fucking saving our lives, saving up for vodka
Red-faced like lobsters
But fuck giving care
We're blowing money like our careers

And what's righteousness when we ain't got nothing?
And what's right?
Nothing's right

Nice. Brings up a few different issues, multiple messages in one rap. There are some lines that are specifically pretty clever. Like "what's a penny to a thought if I could put a dollar to a dream?" and "cop a yoyo for christmas but got no strings attached."

The rhymes are pretty simple but that can be fixed with some editing. It has an excellent message which is the most important part, and like I said there are some pretty clever lines. If only mainstream hip hop was as good as this, then I'd actually listen to it.

Main idea is that regardless of if you start off with a dream and go on a more honest route, if you go a criminal route, that we're all going to end up in the same shit hole, so really, there's no point.
Fucking saving our lives, saving up for vodka
Red-faced like lobsters
But fuck giving care
We're blowing money like our careers
For example shows that we're done caring about our "could haves" and "ifs" and we're just going to spend our money on the now.
We're left looking at angels
But angels to us are faces from under navels
Also shows that we're left hopeless and that our "angels" aren't really angels, and just drunken and hazy faces we see during one night stands and regretful moments.

So yeah. Be it you drift off the path due to money problems,
You can rap C.R.E.A.M all you want but it ain't stopping the dealers

Hopelessness,
All drowning in this ocean, ears pounding,
And we're waking up on these mattresses, every spring is tough.

Or even friends and close ones leaving you behind and hurt,
Bitches acting like they loyal, like they friends, till they stabbing backs

Righteousness means nothing and dreams all end you in the same fucked up spot as the most honorable of people.
