Just giving thanks and appreciation to all those folks who have looked out for me.
I put my soul to this microphone,
Since a youngin used to write the poems,
Heard a curl and kept micheal on,
My uncle nate said you got something to say,
Did that first demo, put these jewels to a tape,
ADats to cake, had crawled before i walked,
Me and Rip in the basement, then we started to spark,
Mixtapes on pavement, posters on the light polls,
Corkscrew, Nero, himalaya crew,
Millienium, to Metrop, Shyne before he got pop,
Rock top of the flats, put Bottom Line on the map,
Rhythm Room, ladies first, whoo kid, monte rok,
Nate dogg, Bizzy Bone in Lorain wit Flip,
Gave Del the cd, the Heiro Halloween,
Blacked out to Black Rob, freestyles wit Freeze,
Opened up for the Gza with my path in sight..
Then met vElo, Sundance, Hip Hop 4 life...
Never knew which way I would travel this road
Give thanks to the people, who filled my bowl,
To the friends and support, and some family too,
From the bottom of my heart, got love for you,
Shouts out to the ones who looked out for me,
Stirred the pot for this P Rhyme recipe,
Just a work in progress, know I caused some stress,
But life is a test; know I gave my best,
Only because a lot of folks looked out for P,
Miss Hodge 2nd grade saw Fred in me,
Miss Jordan 4th grade, taught me how to sing,
Set a good foundation, taught me we were kings,
With skin like me in elementary,
Lil boy from the hood be all you can be,
Not quite a beastie, but fight for your rights,
