NF - Real

Song Rating: 8.67/10

Song lyrics:

Yeah, real music
Yo, ya just get in that, you get in that head space, ya know

Somebody get the body bags, working with beats and
Put the MCs in โ€˜em, season em, put em on a beat with me, then Im eating โ€˜em
Get away from the table, you rappers aint hungry enough, you rappers aint hungry like us
They talk about me like Im here, they talk about you like you was
That nurse came into my room, she told me Im sick in the head
Im in hip-hops hospital bed with a pad and a pen and a brace on my neck
They told me that Im never leaving. Why? I am as ill as it gets
Any rapper that say that they runnin the game, Imma come in they session and cut off they legs, woo
Strap a grenade to my head, pull out the pin
My music is mind blowin, aint nobody do it like I do it
You aint never been on my level, I gotta problem with the way they keep on talkin and actin like everybody gonna get a better sleep with your eyes open
You wanna know what I noticed?
I look around and my fanbase and they ready
That last album was heavy, that last album was gritty
How you gon match that? Just let me
Do what I do best
Youre better off playing Russian roulette
Then comin in a booth with me cause I get
A little bit intense, Im like, โ€œWhos next?โ€
Yall better watch it, take a look at where the clock is
Its my time, this ladder of music that I climbed, I took the machete, the game isnt ready
Them rappers, they coming up on me, I cut off the ladder, and I told โ€˜em, โ€œbye-byeโ€
What? You lookin for a high-five? Nice try
Do not believe everything that you read on the Internet
I do not know who your dentist is, but he should clean out your mouth
Dont call me a sellout, thats something Ive never been
Ive been through hell all my life though
But I know what heaven is
Father forgive me, for I am a sinner
But you gave me music as medicine
And nobody want a problem when they get in my zone better leave me be
Im a mean MC, better feed me rappers or feed me beats, ah, feed me both of em

They like Nate, whats it like to be famous?
Um, Ill let you know if I make it
I wonder what life will be like if I didnt stick out my neck
200 dollars inside of my bank account, woo, I was living on that
I need some money to pay for my rent, I need some money to pay for my gas
Im not complaining, Im just being honest, I promise that I will not beg for respect
I get so frustrated, take a look at what I created
Time is wasting and I aint waiting
Im a doctor with no job
Me, I dont have no patients
I keep pacing back and forth, I keep racing
You aint never been in my book and I got a problem with it, why? Cause youre acting like you read my pages
I wreck these stages, real talk, better give me space cause I am chasing
Something they told me that I wont make it, Im not famous, Im just Nathan
And I wonder how the world gon take this
They might hate it, but you dont know anything about me, you know Ill leave em changing
Cause you know Im real with it, dont care if you feeling it
Im feeling it, you dont like it then deal with it, and if God aint real, real isnt
You still wonder why I existed, I exist in the world thats real different
And what you gon be when you grow up Nate? I doubt they will get it
My life is a mess, better watch your step when you step in it
Some of this brain is off limits Im off in a world that you dont get cause you aint ever been in it
In 10 minutes, I still couldnt explain whats inside my brain, dont mess with it
Ive invested a lot of me inside these lines, Im just protecting em
Everybody wanna hear the real version of life then dont get so sensitive
When I say something a little bit raw
I jot my thoughts and they call it negative
You wanna know where my heart is? I stand out cause I wear my garbage
I work my hardest and every time I look into the mirror, dont forget about where I started

Tell me what am I doing?
Tell me what am I doing?
Tell me what am I, what am I doing?
Tell me what am I doing?
I say what am I doing?
Tell me what am I doing here?
If Im not being real, mmm
