Look At Me Now lyrics:

Verse 1:

I am not supposed be here /
I was not invited, I am not supposed to eat here /
Table with my enemies, snacking on a beat here /
I can see through every last one of y'all, so be clear /
I talk about God and how we kings and he live in us /
But I keep it real, that's why the goons still feeling us /
Be cool dog disrespect is not the way to deal with us /
Cause I can put you in your place kinda like a realtor /
Got some awards on me now, got some dough on me now /
Like half time, I had some friends switch goals on me now /
This session, teach you a lesson if you doze on me now /
On how to depend on the Lord, cause he rose in me now /
I see this generation, everybody wanna be famous /
Want everybody to love you, y'all wanna be Raymond /
Everybody hate truth, so you gone prolly hate this /
But my foundation on a rock, so I'm ok with being Chris /
This world evil, it manipulate people /
Like wearing a suit of armor around magneto /
RMG assembled this year like the avengers /
You would swear I'm Stan Lee, how I help you see the vision /
We ain't got a whole lot, just a few stones trying slay a giant /
In a industry that say you gotta be Goliath /
Said we'd be nothing, but they lying /
See my faith is in what God say, i suggest you try it, it’s Minor /

Hook:

They said that I will never make it, look at me now /
I would say that they’re mistaken, look at me now /
I was born broke and naked, look at me now /
I pray you see the Lord’s gracious, look at me now /

(2x)

Verse 2:

Look here, the difference between me and you /
Homie that is clear as day /
You trying to make a mil, I'm trying to give one a way /
You think you indestructible, I know they we made of clay /
So I live life desperately, like I'm about to die today /
Cause that may be my reality /
In a time when black men are seeing more and more casualties /
Whether bad cop or gang, I still see it a tragedy /
And they upload the clips on the net, for world to see /
Just to get they click ups, they upload a beat down /
Fear of being a victim make me wanna walk with heat now /
But that's not the Lords will, he said advocate for peace now /
Plus I'm already dead, go head and hashtag me now /
This oppression is systemic, we don't see it tho /
Slavery is still alive, prison is the vehicle /
But we don't wanna talk about it /
We just wanna share our Twitter thoughts about it /
Grieve for that young man body that got chalk around it /
Look me in my eyes, tell me what you see /
When I look at you, I see somebody just like me /
Made in the image of God, from the dust like me /
Blew breath in your body for his lungs like me /
See I'm trying to paint a picture with my words /
That'll help you see possessions and they words are not your worth /
You hearing me now , yeah you hearing now /
Finally reflecting greatness boy look at you now /

Hook:

They said that I will never make it, look at me now /
I would say that they’re mistaken, look at me now /
I was born broke and naked, look at me now /
I pray you see the Lord’s gracious, look at me now
