who am i featuring s.j. hernandez

mvp verse:
 
what would you do
 
if you were to find out 
 
that i rewrote history 
 
by not being a statistic that made it to the 3rd page of a newpaper
 
not fulfilling society's stereotype of a hispanic man
 
by the way, there is no such thing as hispanics
 
we are call latinos and latinas
 
hispanics is a word that's extraneous like the rankings in the caste system
 
where we are placed on the bottom of the pits
 
our rise above hate and racism gives society all types of fits
 
i'm sorry
 
i didn't live up to the expectation
 
of selling rocks on the corner
 
smoking weed sounding philosophically idiotic
 
drinking liquor on the corner
 
shooting up in the air
 
instead
 
my future is built on dreams
 
regardless of the stacks being high
 
there is no such thing as getting by
 
everything i get, i earned because it's rightfully mine
 
who am i?
 
Because If You Look At Me,
 
The Only Thing You'd See
 
is a man from the bronx
 
in a city that never sleeps
 
Pursuing And Chasing His Dream.
 
and more so, be the absolute best
 
better than anybody
 
s.j. hernandez's verse:
 
What I Do,
If You Were To Find Out,
It Could Possibly Kill You!
Only Started Out Afew Months Ago,
But Now I'm Sitting Back Watching My Cash Flow.
People Screaming My Name,
One Day I Hope Acquire That Type Of Fame.
 
Right Now, You Better Know Me,
Cause One Day My Time Will Come,
Small Town Texas Kid Making Songs That Make You Go Numb.
Proud To Be From The Lone Star State,
May God Bless Texas As I Make My Way 
To The Top, Every Label Knows My Face.
 
Super Collider Call Me That,
Call Me Underdog Thats A Fact.
But I Don't Claim It All,
It Was God Who Blessed Me When I made My Fall.
Now I Rose Up, On My Way Back Trying To Tighten My Grip,
Although I May Slip.
 
Me And My Mind Left Up In A Cloud,
I Hope I Make MGK Proud.
He Writes So Clean, His Raps Are Dope,
It Was Him That Gave Me Hope.
And To All The People Who Doubted Me,
I Saw Y'all At The Show Shouting My Name,
Helping Me Increase My Gain.
 
With Gain There Is Pain,
So Don't Think I Didn't Have It Easy.
One Point I Cuts Running To My Veins 
Up And Down My Arms.
 
Lost The Only Girl That Actually Means Something To Me,
And The One Thing I Want Is To Have Her Here With Me 
Remeber When We Used Walk Around That Pond We'd 
Sit And Talk For Hours Underneath That Big Tree?
She's My Best Friend The Only One I Said I'd 
Be Happy With Til The End.
 
What I Am? More Like Who I Am.
Because If You Look At Me,
The Only Thing You'd See
Is A Small Town Texas Kid, 
Pursuing And Chasing His Dream.
