Young HM - Tune Em Out

Song Rating: 7.57/10

Song lyrics:

[Hook]
When my haters talk I just tune em out
They dont know a thing about me, all they do is doubt me
They say theres no way I can run the game
But I dont remember seeing your name in the hall of fame

[Verse 1]
When I was young, people would tell me I wasnt from Zimbabwe
Saying things like, Is that like an African holiday?
And some of those kids over there on the playground thought I was a bit of a freak
But how could you know a thing about me when you only met me last week?
But the truth is, I didnt fit in back home or in your cla**ic American mold
I couldnt speak a word of my own language and it left me at a distinct disadvantage
Id be the flavor of the month every time we had a family gathering
But it always ended with them laughing at me while I did a lot of stammering

And every time I went to school I was made to look foolhardy
Trying to describe a place that to them sounded like it was straight out of Barney
Theyd stop me and say, Whoa, Zimbabwes a country? Dude thats pretty gnarly
But I bet its just chock full of wheat and barley

And it got me thinking
Maybe I was just living in a web of lies
And that I just dont belong on Cloud 9
Especially considering I didnt even think I had a defining trait
And I couldnt even find myself a playmate
I was trapped by my chronic lack of self-esteem
And I felt like I was slowly running out of steam

[Hook]
When my haters talk I just tune em out
They dont know a thing about me, all they do is doubt me
They say theres no way I can run the game
But I dont remember seeing your name in the hall of fame

[Verse 2]
I know some of yall still think I cant rhyme
And are saying to your buddy, Hey, I think hes out of time
But I still got 60 seconds to blow your mind
So just remember, right now this stage is mine
Ill be working on my next architectural design


While my haters ll still be trying to flame my hairline
But how could these fakers know a thing about success
When half the time they dont even know how to properly dress
And theyd rather host a party givin out their street address
Than try to make a name for themselves in the name of progress

So imma k** it and tell it like Im in an airplane cockpit
And to be honest, I dont expect all of yall to get it
Because youre so busy trying to give me combat fatigue
That you probably dont even know a thing about the League

But its all G, Ill let my haters stay and watch, but either way they wouldnt abort
Because its not like theyve got any other stamps on their pa**port
But they see my name and look at my face, they always say, Oh, hes a little short
Yet they fail to realize my game isnt out there on the court
But at Richard Montgomery from where Im repping MD
And working and thriving in the state that made me

[Hook]
When my haters talk I just tune em out
They dont know a thing about me, all they do is doubt me
They say theres no way I can run the game
But I dont remember seeing your name in the hall of fame

[Verse 3]
So right here imma make a new declaration
That from this day onwards Im gonna put my procrastination on probation
But look, I didnt come here to get a standing ovation
But rather to give you all a message
Because I know there are some of you just following the crowd
And youre too afraid to stand up and be loud
So just remember who said this
That you shouldnt let the mistakes of yesterday affect the decisions of today and the opportunities of tomorrow
Or else youll leave yourself stuck in a whirlpool of sorrow

Because youve got to remember that someone believes in you
And hangs onto every word you say because they know its true
So this is for all of you working those late nights
Trying to make things right
Just know that victorys in sight
Shining brighter than a light
