And i was like, Momma, this air bubble right here, it's gonna make me fly - I hit that court, and when I jumped, I jumped, I swear I got so high -I touched the net, Mom touched the net... this is the best day of my life.
I knew that I couldn’t crease ‘em My friends couldn’t afford ‘em Four stripes on their Adidas
And then my friend Carlos’ brother got murdered for his Fours, whoa See he just wanted a jump shot, but they wanted his Starter coat though Didn’t wanna get caught, from Genesee Park to Othello
I want to fly Can you take me far away Give me a star to reach for Tell me what it takes And I’ll go so high I’ll go so high
We want what we can’t have, commodity makes us want it So expensive, damn, I just got to flaunt it Got to show ‘em, so exclusive, this that new shoeA hundred dollars for a pair of shoes I would never hoop in Look at me, look at me, I’m a cool kid
I'd rather want someting else..
But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Knight tricked us all Will I stand for change, or stay in my box These Nikes help me define me, but I’m trying to take mine, off
