Ultimately, "Do What You Want" is a call to action. Doing what you want no matter what outsiders may think(provided you aren't harming anyone, of course). This mixtape is my legacy immortalized. Crafted out of the love for hip hop.

Thank you for listening and your encouragement through the creative process.


:27 verse
Skyzoo, Phonte, Oddisee
Logic, killer Mike, saint bre
no matter what you said that i can't be
they helped me kill everybody who aint me
the world comes to a stop when i arrange these stanzas
my words are dope beat dancers
knew there was power in my blood when my dad beat cancer
so fuck your mainstream hip hop propaganda
you played yourself, i made myself
like no one else, you know what else?
they feel me more with every breath
they learning how to love theyself
figured if I couldn't beat em,
i'd join em and beat em on the beat
they couldn't walk with my sole
now they smelling defeat
so fuck the dj,
we dont care what he play
on the internet,
got the real shit on replay
declare your independence
with each and every sentence
when you got control you can never be the victim

:1:16 hook
Know you spent your days
being nonchalant
Wanna be the best,
Gotta do what they won't
Damned if you do,
Damned if you don't
Time is running out,
Better do what you want
