Do u rap for the money...or for fame..or for yourself?
To me, success is like a tree. you plant seeds and you hope to grow strong roots that can hold up a strong trunk, and have a lot of branches that spread out wide with lots of leaves to catch a lot of sunlight and a lot of rain. and in time, your tree will bear fruit, and you can eat that fruit or you can share it with your friends or you can plant the seeds back in the ground and plant more trees, or you can use it to fertilise, but it's not like a gold statue that you put on your fireplace, cos if you put fruit up on your fireplace it will rot and stink up your living room.
