“Not Yet Famous”

Written by Mike Petrow

Im not yet famous I don’t have a name

And im not yet famous but I don’t sound the same

As all the other rappers that grew up in the hood

Im not in a gang, no crips no blood

I got no street credit, like all of you got

I aint 50 cent, I didn’t get shot

But look at me, this kid can still rap

And I, haven’t got my money, like spit’s a trap

It’s not like I

Use my credit card that is prepaid

Then take a ride in my escalade

There’s my ghetto car and here’s my ghetto ring

And don’t forget about my ghetto bling

But don’t forget the meaning of ghetto

Its means a poor place to live or something that’s crap

But it’s associated with all the cool things in rap

Too young for groupies, I wish I never told ya

But when im older

You’ll wake up with me, like I was Folgers

(Chorus) x2

Not yet famous, get ready for me

Cause i got skill, like you can see

Put this damn track on your mp3

I hope I am, what you wanted to be

Celebs never get poor thats what you don’t know

Cause when their music dies they get a reality show

So good for me, I got my plan set quick

Or ill be another rapper in an action flick

But that time has not come im still on the first album

No rappin with puppets I aint got to be dumb

That’s no offense to Em, you could lyrically kill me

Literally too, no reason to fill me

With insults to injury like my broken arm

Cause im just that crazy kid who means no harm

In the future look back, my voice was so high

I wonder with this album, how I got by

No I don’t, I got skill to spare

And if you need help, I got skill to share

If you got no balls, well I got a pair

Not afraid to say f*ck, yes I swear

(Chorus) x2

End of the song got nothing else to say

‘Cept im not yet famous, at least not yet today

Cool, I would like to hear the lines and how you flow them. Maybe you famous some day, good luck :2thumbs:

I like these lines, they funny and so true hehe:

"Celebs never get poor thats what you don’t know

Cause when their music dies they get a reality show"

But I dont't like the lines about Eminem:

That’s no offense to Em, you could lyrically kill me

True, but you don't have to say that in your song :1-say-yes:

IM reworking my older songs cause their kinda wack in some parts. cds now called neatural ground and my names concept.

Im not yet famous I don’t have a name

And im not yet famous but I don’t sound the same

As all the other rappers that grew up in the hood

Im not in a gang, no crips no blood

I got no street credit, like all of you got

I aint 50 cent, I didn’t get shot

But that time has not come im still on the first Cd

Im a new file loading, time to read the ‘readme’

You need to know what’s going down when I rhyme

Sit down and listen, so just take your time

Watch my lyrics and you see the precision and care

So damn good I got skill to spare

And if you need help, I got skill to share

If you got no balls, well I got a pair

Not afraid to say f*ck, yes I swear

(Chorus) x2
