NF – Real Free Mp3 Download
“Real” is written in response to the haters. It’s about NF’s passion for the music he writes, and how he feels that he shouldn’t be overlooked. NF is also taking an intensely competitive aim at other rappers. There is no chorus just rapid fire bars daring other rappers to try this.
At the end of the music video for “Real,” NF wakes up in a plane. He looks around and asks, “Are we on a plane?” Nate, realizing that he is, in fact, on a plane, sits down with a look of satisfaction, ready to enjoy the ride. This is a metaphor about how NF’s career is starting to “take off” and that soon, he believes, he will be at the top.
Will somebody get the body bags?
We gon’ put the beats in ’em, nah
Put the MCs in ’em, season ’em
Put ’em on a beat with me then I’m eatin’ ’em
Get away from the table, you rappers ain’t hungry enough
You rappers ain’t hungry like us
They talk about me like I’m here, they talk about you like you was, woo!
That nurse came into my room, she told me I’m sick in the head
I’m in hip-hop’s hospital bed, with a pad and a pen and a brace on my neck
They told me that I’m never leavin’
Why? I am as ill as it gets
Any rapper that say that they runnin’ the game
I’ma come in they session and cut off they legs, woo!
Strap a grenade to my head, pull out the pin
My music is mind-blowin’
Ain’t nobody do it like I do it
You ain’t ever been on my level
I got a problem with the way they keep on talkin’
And actin’ like everybody gonna get it
Better sleep with your eyes open
You wanna know what I noticed?
Look around at my fan base and they ready (I see you!)
That last album was heavy (I see you!)
That last album was gritty
How you gon’ match that? Just let me
Do what I do best, you’re better off playin’ Russian roulette
Than comin’ in a booth with me ’cause I get
A little bit intense, I’m like, “Who’s next?”
Y’all better watch it, take a look at where the clock is
It’s my time
This ladder of music that I climbed
I took the machete, the game isn’t ready
Them rappers, they comin’ up on me
I cut off the ladder, and I told ’em, “Bye-bye” (Bye-bye)
What, you lookin’ for a high-five? Nice try! (Woo!)
Do not believe everything that you read on the internet
I do not know who your dentist is
But he should clean out your mouth
Don’t call me a sellout, that’s something I’ve never been
I’ve been through hell all my life though
But I know what Heaven is
Father forgive me, for I am a sinner
But You gave me music as medicine, woo!
If nobody want a problem when they get in my zone, better leave me be!
I’m a mean MC
Better feed me rappers or feed me beats, agh!
Feed me both of ’em
They like, “Nate, what’s it like to be famous?” (Hahahahahaha)
Umm, I’ll let you know if I make it! (Yeah)
I wonder what life would be like
If I didn’t stick out my neck
Two hundred dollars inside of my bank account, woo!
I was livin’ on that
I need some money to pay for my rent
I need some money to pay for my gas
I’m not complainin’, I’m just bein’ honest
I promise that I will not beg for respect, nah!
I get so frustrated, take a look at what I’ve created
Time is wasting, and I ain’t waiting
I’m a doctor with no job, me, I don’t have no patience
I keep pacing, back and forth, I keep racing
You ain’t never been in my book and I got a problem with it, why? ‘Cause you actin’ like you read my pages
I wreck these stages
Real talk, better give me space ’cause I am chasing
Something they told me that I won’t make it, agh!
I’m not famous, I’m just Nathan (Woo!)
And I wonder how the world gon’ take this
They might hate it
But you know anything about me
You know that don’t mean I’m changin’
‘Cause you know I’m real with it
Don’t care if you feelin’ it, I’m feelin’ it
You don’t like it? Then deal with it
And if God ain’t real, real isn’t
Used to wonder why I existed
I exist in the world that’s real different
And, “What you gon’ be when you grow up, Nate?”
I doubt they will get it
My life is a mess, better watch your step when you step in it
Some of this brain is off-limits
I’m off in a world you don’t get
‘Cause you ain’t ever been in it
In ten minutes I still couldn’t explain what’s inside my brain, don’t mess with it
I’ve invested a lot of me inside these lines, I’m just protectin’ ’em
Everybody wanna hear the real version of life
Then don’t get so sensitive when I say something a little bit raw
I jot my thoughts and they call it negative
You wanna know where my heart is?
I stand out ’cause I wear my garbage
I work my hardest
And every time I look into the mirror I don’t forget about where I started, woo!
