Track 2 off the SANCT EP produced by Reggie Coby


i know somebody asking just give 'em the facts

[chorus] tell 'em i'm doin fine / tell 'em i'm doin great (x3) they remember the mister now it's minister blakes

tell 'em i'm doin fine as my fourth week in 08 / insatiable greatness, i can't wait / clean is my slate, what i'ma create / something to glorify what a man can't make / he make money, and he can make a mess / he can make his best effort to tell ya he the best / but nobody foresaw the sharp left where bavu breaks to the west / tell 'em i feel fresh / i remember frustration, i remember the stress / that was 77 percent of why i left / i needed some help getting back to myself / time to trade it in, me and the world can't mesh


i remember the cab and working at txtag / where's my second album, i had to -ex that / remember thoughts of putting the capital on the map / naaah, that'll never happen but tell 'em i'm in tact


[bridge] fine / i'm doing fine / i'm doing

tell 'em i been handling, doing what i can / and minister means servant, i thought it meant the man / tell 'em i ain't a pastor, still on my preacher raps though / so if somebody ask ya, just give 'em the facts




tell 'em i'm maintaining, i ain't pullin a ma$e / i ain't duckin the game, i play at my own pace / running my own race with my heart on straight / tell 'em i ran a half-marathon yesterday / for breakfast 10k but only by the grace of YAHWEH / way less consideration to what y'all say / no longer child's play for now / and tell 'em my wife's happy 'cause i'm keeping my vows / never knew what being a nobody was like 'til I relocated and let go of a mic / left my people behind, but found me some peace of mind / i can finally see the difference between me and my environs



fine / great / fine / great / fine / great
