    Riding on the highway with you
    We discuss your tickets
    Hundreds of dollars worth of tickets
    From your “crumb days”
    When you drove the gray “CAR”

    Now we’ve upgraded
    Driving in the Explorer SUV
    I sorta mention casually
    That I “ran” the E-Z pass
    And you FLIP

    The **** out on me
    Double standards – curiosity
    How come it’s okay for you
    But not okay for me
    You see

    Don’t talk to me
    When you’re feeling like the “man”
    When you’re feeling like you’re running thangs
    And I’m a runner up
    Because I hold it down

    And when we drive off the lot
    Upgraded once again
    With the Infiniti
    You kissin’ on me
    Remembering why you dig me

    **** I gave you a family
    Don’t you know you’re “upgraded”
    Just by being with me?
    I guess you do remember
    Cause it was a nice ride home

    sometimes...

    we forget who we are until reality slaps us in the face...and remind us. too bad the brutha can't see you EVERYDAY instead of when something is done to UPGRADE him materially.

    feeling it.

    peace.
