[Jay]
Uh, uh, uh, uh
It's not a this song, it's just a real song
Feel me?

[Verse 1: Jay]
I heard motherfuckers saying they made Hov
Made Hov say, "OK so, make another Hov"
Niggaz wasn't playing they day role
So we parted ways like Ben and J-Lo
I shoulda been did it but I been in a daze though
I put friends over business end of the day though
But when friends, business interests as they go
Ain't nothing left to say though
I guess we forgot what we came fo'
Shoulda stayed in food and beverage
Too much flossing
Too much Sam Rothstein
I ain't a bitch but I gotta divorce them
Hov have to get the shallow shit up off him
And I ain't even want to be famous
Niggaz is brainless to unnecessarily go through these changes
And I ain't even know how it came to this
Except that fame is
The worst drug known to man
It's stronger than, heroin
When you could look in the mirror like, "There I am"
And still not see, what you've become
I know I'm guilty of it too but, not like them
You lost one

[Chorus:]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some (You lost one)
Sorry I'm a champion, sorry I'm a champion
You lost one

[Verse 2: Trubs]
lost one but not ever again, this letter to him,
my head to the wind as i rev up again,
love letters that i sever from him,
i rip it again, i rip it again,
then let it rain as it sets in the wind,
i nestled in sin, i've settled from grim,
deserved better but i settled for him,
crosscountry i pettled for him,
oppresion is ten, times relevant
i like the person that ive been found ever since
conscience screamin put his head to my clip
but i gave up on him, so revenge is just limp
doddle my maiden name, change, never i pimp
yet never did he, admire i
as i was by his side, his pride would size
i cried my eyes, prayed to the lord by and by
tired to hide the emotion from eyes
it was important that i was perfect with lies
even if the recline hurt, cause i worship my rise
and this was all because i settled for him
said i lost one but, no not ever again!

[Chorus:]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some (You lost one)
Sorry I'm a champion, sorry I'm a champion
You lost one

[Verse 3: Lauryn Hill]
Now, now how come your talk turn cold
Gained the whole world for the price of your soul
Tryin' to grab hold of what you can't control
Now you're all floss, what a sight to behold
Wisdom is better than silver and gold
I was hopeless now I'm on Hope road
Every man want to act like he's exempt
When him need to get down on his knees and repent
Can't slick talk on the day of judgement
Your movement's similar to a serpent
Tried to play straight, how your whole style bent?
Consequence is no coincidence
Hypocrites always want to play innocent
Always want to take it to the full out extent
Always want to make it seem like good intent
Never want to face it when it's time for punishment
I know that you don't wanna hear my opinion
But there come many paths and you must choose one
And if you don't change then the rain soon come
See you might win some but you just lost one

[Chorus:]
Lose one, let go to get one
Left one, lose some to win some (You lost one)
Sorry I'm a champion, sorry I'm a champion
You lost one

then let it rain as it sets in the wind,
i nestled in sin, i've settled from grim,
^I loved that piece.

You have good pressence on the track, flows smoothe nothign is forced and the multis actually fit where as many cats nowdays force mutlis in to make there writing seem better. This is a different structure/style/approach then some of your older stuff, good to see you back over break from school.

PS, Im still waiting on a verse from you, your one of the few people I never collabo'ed with before. If you dont have the PM still of the song I will send it again

stay up ma'
