Damn! I never thought it'd come to this. The perfect union is falling apart. I'm not really sure how it happened. They say that people change over time. I guess that's true. I've grown up. I'm not really sure that you have. Maybe you did...but I just didn't see it.
For as long as I can remember...it's been me and you. We were always down and loved by the crew. I remember when you helped me grow. Dealing with my parents divorce, I turned to you. You never let me down.
I still love you...just not the way that I used to. I mean, i still smile and nod my head when I hear you or when I see you. But it ain't the same. Have you changed? Yes! Have I changed? Yes! Change is good.
We had some good times. No...we had some great times! I remember when it all started back in the day. This was before the job, car, crib, wife, and kids. This was the good ole days. You took me all over the world. You took me from SC to places like LA, NYC, Miami, Chicago, Houston and everywhere in between. It seemed like everything that I did involved you. From the way that I dressed to the way that I talked it involved you. It became funny to see white people try to copy my style b/c of you. But you can't be copied nor duplicated. You are what you are.
And then you were fun then, I'd be geeked when you came around
You were fresh when you were underground
Original, pure untampered sister
Boy I tell ya...i miss her
Now, it appears that we're going our separate ways. That's cool. Maybe I'm too old for you anyway. But I can't help but hold on to what we've had b/c I know that we can make that magic again. You can spark that special feeling when I hear you call me. When I'm reminded of a song that takes me to that old boom bap.
I could turn my back and walk away from you.
Fuck it. I'm not. We've been down for too long. We've still got more history to make.
The more that I think about you...I realize that I can't outgrow you. You're not a number. You are a way of life. You are me. And I am you.
But I'ma take you back because I know that me and you can't stop
Cause who I'm talking bout y'all is hip hop
