When you finally get above the game

You find a spot where not everyone know your name

You can walk down the street and not be concerned about drama

And you don't have to worry about protecting your mama

Thats elevation

When these fuckas can't get what you got

And you can chill out and not make the spot hot

No more looking out for headbustas

No more stupid bitches trying to play you for a succa

Thats elevation

When you finally get your peice of the pie

And you don't have to choose between ride or die

No more worring about cops when smokin ya blunts

Everybody's cool and ain't got no reason to stunt

Thats elevation

Thats what i'm trying to do

If you ain't about rising up

I can't be fuckin with you


I'm trying to get up out the smoke

If you stay in that shit to long

You bound to choke

When you finally feel safe in the place that you live

And the street that you stay on is safe for your kids

That's elevation, thats where we need to be

So we can get up out the game and finally be free
