Ransom Quote

“Who knew that Lucifer was cutting side deals.
I know he’s coming for me so I keep my eyes peeled.
Although my situation’s never really ideal,
if I don’t find a better way then maybe God will
and he ain’t got no trophies for the runner up
The escalator is going down, but I’m running up.
They told me I was gonna be nothing but a lost cause
Nigga you been down a couple years, so how you coming up?
How you stop a nigga from leaving after the love is lost?
How you stop a nigga from bleeding after the blood is lost?
Yeah, I got a couple of demons, don’t get no one involved
Yeah, I got some goals I’m achieving; nigga I want it all!
The money’s piling, I’m diving in it, I somersault.
My stomach’s growling, I gotta get it, I’m coming for it!
Let’s swap shoes; you can know how I feel.
Guess I’m just a little confused, I don’t know if it’s real”

Joe Budden Quote

“So I don’t never say what I can’t do.
If he can be happy with life then nigga I can too!
While Jose wanna die
Ain’t tell nobody, but eyeing his eyes [I] feel I should probably identify.
I said ‘everyday he lives with pain and want to end it.
Something’s wired wrong in your brain, you gotta mend it.’
[He] had a bad breakup and let it expose dude
But if she was getting you high then she would get you low too.
So who’s there to wait on me?
Y’all just get it off y’all and put the weight on me
Nigga looked me in my eyes, it was amazing to me
And said ‘you don’t understand you not as crazy as me
You got God, nigga! I’m the most mentally flawed nigga
You not even built to withstand all I’ve endured, nigga
You know shit about the thoughts in my head
Or the strength I need daily just to get out of bed
Just to open my eyes! nigga, open your eyes!
The words spoken of wise, you just know a disguise
We can end this right here, I got nothing more to say to you
You ain’t never met another fucking nigga crazier'”

Joe Budden Quote

“But you think I ain’t hurt, like it ain’t no guilt in me?
Like it ain’t killing me? I’m out here on a killing spree?
A sickness; I ain’t found a way to nurse it yet?
Like I ain’t a nervous wreck, like it’s no reverse effect?
Internal bleeding and the cuts run deep.
Every time I leave one love, a loved one leaves.”

Joe Budden Quote

“No mentorship, I was unsupervised.
Had to learn on my own, every rule, to survive.
Still I manned up and caught those wrongs.
Go ahead and judge yo! I got my court clothes on.
Y’all see the front, behind the scenes more goes on.
Check my back catalog, it’s in all those songs, for real.
So I can be at peace forever.
I left the puzzle right there, nigga, piece it together.”
