I’m fragile. I feel pain. I hurt. I open my eyes. I create. I conquer. I hold the power.
I’m a thinker. I create victory. I do not give up. I feel no fear. I fear no man.
I’m an athlete, a warrior, an artist.
you don’t really know how to grind. Like you talk grind – like I love it, like I go into the weight room and ya’ll playing like Pac. Ya’ll playing Biggie, like ya’ll all in it. Like, you like Pac but you don’t have the spirit of Pac. You like love Pac, you like listening to Pac, you like listening to Biggie, you like to talk about the grind. But you don’t really know what the grind’s like.
I know what the grind is like. You don’t even know what the grind look like.
You finally made it to the big leagues, and now you wanna chill? Now you got the big head? Now you can’t grind?
You here now. You here now! You finally made it!
And this is where you break up? This is where you start chilling? This is where you get comfortable?
You made it now! You made it now! You in the big leagues now! They watching you now!
This is where you make it permanent!
Yeah I saw – I saw, “perfect, perfect,” nope. Practice don’t make perfect. Practice makes permanence! This is permanent ya’ll! This is permanent. You can go wherever you wanna go from here.
It does not take talent – you don’t have to be talented. Right? You don’t have to be gifted, you don’t have to be the quickest, the strongest. You don’t have to be the most intelligent to get to where I am. This is what you gotta do: You just got to grind though. Your grind – you got to out grind!
Everybody wanna be a beast. Everybody wanna be a BEAST! … Until its time to do what beasts do.
Until its time to do what beasts do…
Everybody wanna be a beast! Everybody got a lio– tattoos of lions! Lions all on they twitter page– everybody got the lion thing now, they tweeting now, “Rawr!”
But when its time to practice you aint on beast mode! Let me tell you something as I’m getting out of here; can I be real with ya’ll? Most of ya’ll think that a lion is who he is because of how ferocious he is when he catch that gazelle or when he catch that zebra. Can I be real with ya’ll? A part of being a beast just aint eating a gazelle. A part of being a beast is to hunt.
Its the hunt that they excited about! They like to see the gazelles run, then boom! They take off! Cause real lions like to hunt! They love the process – the process – just as much as they love the prize.
And some of ya’ll just want to score! You don’t like the process! You not in love with the process!
If you will be a champion, if you will be a beast, you gonna have to go through something.
Aint nobody gonna hand you nothing. Aint nobody gonna hand you no championship. Aint nobody gonna hand you no title.
