Royce Da 5’9″ – Shine Lyrics

(Intro)
Just shine your light on the world
So shine your light on the world
No matter anywhere you go, kid
Just shine your light on the world
Don’t let the money make you thirsty
Don’t even let it be your goal
Just let it come and keep on working
And shine your light on the hoes
Cause I’m the hardest ni**a out here
I’d rather die than live a life of fear
I know I got to be down here
To shine my light on them hoes
Hardest ni**a out here
I’d rather starve than live a life of fear
I feel like God sent me down here
To shine my light on them hoes

(Verse)
Lost in the world when me and my girlfriend meet, bless you
You know they say if you f**ked her and she didn’t cum
And you came, then she f**ked you

Hip-hop is my house; watch my philosophies win
Around artists I stand out like I locked my keys in
I forgot my goal to twenty-one was make a classic
Walk away like Tiger with my nine iron then take the master’s
They say that you get what you ask for
Well, I asked to be left alone with my pen, pad and passport
This ain’t no rags to rich brag s**t
In fact, it’s more close to being a rich to rags story
The fabric I’m cut from’s the most genuine article mankind offers
I’m like an underground landmine talking
Forks, torch, hammer and Antwan walking
And your boy’s a tampon
In every store I’m anti corporate
Highest exalted, call me commercial? I’m highly insulted
This is Royce da 5’9″, my body and soul s**t
All I have in this f**king globe is my shotty and flow
I’d rather let the coroner outline my body in chalk
Than let the fans order me round the clock and buy me in bulk
F**k that s**t

(Outro)
Just shine your light on the world
So shine your light on the world
No matter anywhere you go, kid
Just shine your light on the world
Don’t let the money make you thirsty
Don’t even let it be your goal
Just let it come and keep on working
And shine your light on the hoes
Cause I’m the hardest ni**a out here
I’d rather die than live a life of fear
I know I got to be down here
To shine my light on them hoes
Hardest ni**a out here
I’d rather starve than live a life of fear
I feel like God sent me down here
To shine my light on them hoes
