I remixed "Money Interlude" by J. Cole.

lyrics

Came home to a prison
in my dome it's a prison
27 look at how i've grown in this prison
fucked up so many times i'm alone in this prison
i done spent way too long in this prison
i'm planning out how to get gone out this prison
i make beats and i write songs in this prison
squats pushups i'm getting strong in this prison
grew up poor felt like i was born in a prison
hanging round some niggas and they all been to prison
caught felonies and from court went to prison
lost my religion right before i went to prison
how my fam gon teach me right and wrong they in prison?
cell like alaska
thin ass bunk too
six layers on
freezing in my jumpsuit
'round loud niggas and some punks too
im the quiet nigga everybody wanna talk to

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

used to be that nigga that was robbin cats
heard reasonable doubt was in awe of rap
then i started making beats copied diplomats
started selling weed thought it was the shit to trap
did 4 years i can never get that back
so glad cuz never let me get that gat
so glad i fucked up tryna flip that pack
tryna be a trap nigga couldn't fit that hat
couldn't fill those shoes
nigga lived in the stu
nigga lived in the whip
by planet fitness and shit
nigga totaled the whip
almost died in that shit
spending all of my bread
smoking fire and shit
now i save every cent
tired of not having shit
i was a villian and shit
now im building and shit
shit
