  • Lyrics:   [Verse 1] I'm the most prolific artist, tried to oust Picasso Used my whole head; nose bled, rhymes out the nostrils I always ate supper but my supplement's determination Dropped a couple hints and yearned for greatness Mama I'm GONNA sing I used to keep a stack of records from Stax A record in fact, never met a cat with more records than that Ample samples for pickin', my hands was cramped from the mixin' But darn it Dan's so ambitious, I think he's on to somethin' Slept on so much it should've been a felony Led on so much from lies these ni**as sellin' me I k-kept on per good advice my friends would tell to me Now I'm the best on the scene, my seams is bustin', Della Reese And thanks to Jocelyn I ain't had to worry 'bout the gangsta posturin' She kept my head afloat when all them gangs was watchin' and Told me to be myself and now D. Swain's on top again [Bridge # 1] Danny was bored So he dropped a classic album Wound up at the Grammy Awards Below the stage, front page That means I'm smarter than you other rappers, truth hurts Snuck a peek up Robin Troup's skirt, while you watched at home Keep watchin' holmes (catch up niggas) [Chorus] The world is yours baby, and that's the truth Don't ever let nobody tell you what you can and what you can't do (True!) 'Cause in this life you only get a chance or two (True!) Don't take these dreams for granted, make your plans and move The world is yours baby, all you have to do is try You're bound to reach the stars if you just shoot for the sky So shoot for the sky...just shoot for the sky "World...world...it's the world famous" - M.O.P. "D. Swain..." - Danny! "...world..." - M.O.P. "...the world is mine!" - Kanye West [Verse 2] Now watch me soar across the skies y'all Ambition big as Tracee Ellis Ross's eyeballs They thought I'd gone and forgot my Roots like Dice Raw (Never that) Eat competition like a Tyson brawl Chew you up and spit you out They told me n-never argue with fools So I stayed in my lane just like a car pool Stayed true to myself and darn it if it didn't pay off Critics' predictions way off But you know I shed some tears; +Why Must I Cry+ like Reh Dogg? Why must I stress, a lot can happen in a year's time I disappeared so my career would be revered, I'm Still tryin' to climb and make my mark just like brasierre lines Would've had a singer on this track but Britney Spears declined But no worries, too much at stake to lose Cats be like "if this corny ni**a can make it, then I can make it too" Now I'm their inspiration but no one will come As far as me, star of "D. Swain Motivation 101", +Let's Get It+ [Bridge # 2] I thought I told you I won't lose, I'm in my prime While all y'all struggle with the "wish-I-had-skills-but-I-don't" blues You tried to deny me but I don't give a flying f**k I'm on iTunes, you're on iSuck Ya time's up ni**a [Chorus]
