LS verse gotta give it how u want it/i dont want it if its phoney/i'll stay lonely/for the sake of feeling good & happy/erybody need a lil love/body fiending for a rub/got him pleading for a hug/so he looked for daddy/shining like a diamond/perfect timing when he find him/dont remind him/he gone know it on his own/he aint do it right/all the years been eating at his heart/talking? where to even to start/now he bleeding in the dark/and see that you the light/they tell u treat him right/you're never gonna be him right?/might as well love him/even if he didnt be the type/of father that ya needed/just make sure u dont repeat it/when the circle come around/& u fena plant the seed of life

'Nothing 2 Lose' Im a product of the dark Finish fight fools Sleep through the day This is how the night moves Fangs on display living wild Through the fright Keep me close comfort Live for now and tonight Rest aint what I see Imma close my eyes soon Meet my maker maybe But tonight its bright moons Back against the wall Got nothing to loseo All around the globe This how the night moves Back against the wall Got nothing to lose All around the globe This is how the night moves Back against the wall Got nothing to lose World going crazy Bloody murder on the scene Repercussions from discussions You're no longer on the team I guess you caint get fired These days without firing back Such a crying shame How he dealt with it was whack And thats no pun intended It's a fact you caint defend it When you walk inside a theatre And start killing civilians In your brain thats never healthy Your soul is screaming "help me" The news is such a bad joke I hope nobody tells me Rest in peace & rest in love Rest in peace cuz we're all gonna miss you The music is the comfort Without drinking on that southern Not to govern but to guide you Through the perils and the suffering These are the days of the hungry And the hopeless Another recession's around the corner Meaning mo' stress So blessed living out my dreams Fulfilling life And I hope this song Can help you make it through the night Just fight, yeah 'Cuz fighters carry on And inspire every song I save the world when I write Living like a villain While I'm in this mental prison Feeling like all my thoughts Are closing in

It's all my fault (it's all my fault, it's all my fault) How hard I love (I love so hard, that I hurt my heart) But I can't be (But I can't be no one but me) No other way (So I say, so I say) I try, I try every single living day Gotta be a better man if ya wanna a better pay Gotta have a better plan if u want a dinner plate When u build a house of sand Boy that's fena wash away I spent a minute in the maze Catching feelings in a phase Got my heart crushed hard But i'm better 4 them pains Now i'm headed 4 them gains No shorts, No losses Heavy on the brain Hold it steady on the aim We only shooting 4 the stars Leave them groupies in the car Only focused on my goals Gunning from the bottom 2 the top Never stop til i'm dead & gone is all I know & before I go Bet we see the cream Bet we see the product of the hard work gleam Bet we see the fruits of the labor Proof we are major Aint nobody effing with the team So I sing... t's all my fault (it's all my fault, it's all my fault) How hard I love (I love so hard, that I hurt my heart) But I can't be (But I can't be no one but me) I caint be baby what ya want me 2 I can only be me, & u only u I would never ask u 2 change ur point of view Cuz u give me perspective when I aint seeing true Yeah u put up with my shit Give me space when I need Pardon when I party til the morning sky bleed Ur the woman I need #1 on my team & I'm never fena let u go as long as I breathe Ever since I seen this electric lady Strolling down the block & my heart said maybe I aint never quit Gimme this Gimme kiss & a hug Man I love my baby Heaven sent 2 save me Pour it on me gravy Love like this got a hold of me crazy I aint never mad or sad when im next 2 u Ur the bestest view My favorite baby It's all my fault... It's all my fault I love so hard That I hurt my heart But I cant be No one but me It's all my fault It's all my fault It's all my fault

I was raised like, you know, everybody leaves my life, everybody has left my life...but if you love, you stick. Feel the energy of my love and let it flow through u Lost some people in the past & I don't know the new u The old me wanna come back & show his head But I'm just trying 2 be the best me A better Chad Lost some friends thru relations Ill communication I'm still reaching out 4 'em though No conversation I rarely see 'em anymore I'm 2 weird 2 be around & I'm feeling more alone than away In my home town Damn! But now I know the truth & the facts Blood aint always thicker than water & if family cracks Then we're all seeing the cement No reason 2 stick around & if love got conditions Please miss me with hugs & pounds That's unconditional love There's no conditions with love I still love u despite U aint loving me right I only got one type It's unconditional... U know what I mean it's like, I'm not expecting you 2 just always be there, But 4 u 2 be there! I'm trying 2 give u all I can I'm not the perfect man I'm trying 2 learn from my mistakes While still remain a fan & ever since we 1st encountered I've counted on u 4 comfort In the comfort of ya arms No harm could ever touch us Uh! It's touchy the subject My life without u I can't imagine it Waking up without u See I could never just sever the bond we have When they say I cant U remind me: Don't let 'em doubt u Chad Yeah That's unconditional love There's no conditions with love I still love u despite U aint loving me right I only got one type It's unconditional love There's no conditions with love I still love u despite U aint loving me right I only got one type It's unconditional... I know that word love is very tricky, & the word unconditional is even more tricky But we can do this! I'm still enamored by ya presence when u come around & I would never do u bogus Or talk u down Sometimes with love it doesn't work & the complications hurt & in the end remaining friends Doesn't seem 2 have it's worth But we still The closest of homies Cuz only the phonies Would abandon in bad times & in a bind we get 2 showing The truest of our hues Get replaced by better views & I know we had difficult moments But we keep going & growing Knowing if it's meant 2 be Then it'll be without us forcing Cuz eventually What's supposed 2 comes alive & I'm fortunate 4 our time & if I could I wouldn't take back kisses Or press rewind I'm trying Effort is key in relationships Saying the meanest things that we could I hate this sh.. Aint no living with regrets Cuz the best is yet 2 surface All I'm trying 2 do Is be the opposite of what of a jerk is & love you Like I told u I would Through the bad & the ugly Of course through the good & if I could I'd give u the earth Ur worth is more than stars Our love is told through stories Most recognized as scars It's hard Trading loved ones for loss I put the bottle down Not 2 get lost in the sauce Just trying 2 love myself better & nurture gifts from above I guess only Moms & God Can give u real Unconditional Love

I need a new religion I'm through pretending Who's defending The youth we sending 2 early tombs With pearly tools They never learned 2 use Cuz they were burned at school We need a new direction I'm through deflecting Who's protecting The few that slept in & missed the bus But didn't miss the pain Family is sunshine Amidst the rain We gotta change ourselves 2 save ourselves We're the only ones here That made our hell We keep fanning the flames And channeling pain Through the wrong outlets Let's get inside of the brain & help, help Those that need Build a Newtown Where the kids don't bleed & cowards don't shoot & we all got loot Gotta keep pushing forward If we bout 2 make it through Where do we go from here? Where do we go, Where do we go from here, Where do we go from here? Gotta be better 4 boys yup Gotta be better 4 the girls yup Gotta be better 4 yaself yup Gotta be better 4 the world yup Gotta be better 4 boys yup Gotta be better 4 the girls yup Gotta be better 4 yaself yup Gotta be better 4 the, gottta be better 4 the... So the world don't stop DJs keep spinning Boy boys, b girls Keep on back spinning Emcees got rhythm on the mic keep spitting Got 2 do our lil part So humanity's grinning Hip Hop stay winning Inspiring the children So they reach 4 the stars Not guns & ammunition That's me wishing 4 the better Knowing things will never change But I keep on trying Cuz Longshot's my name Tell me Where do we go from here?

Ur only as hot as ya last A gift in the present My future part of ur past & that's game rewind Same time he hit the pad This Genius I Know(TGIK) Got it popping up in the lab No stopping or feeling bad We dropping the iller Chad Came in this bitch alone Remember dad? Nope But never sad Mommy was all I wanted... But Granny was all I had Never knew how 2 be glad A drag Let's get a bag & smoke the pain away Like bullets from a badge U pull it u better spaz No bully u been a vag So don't ask me why I'm a dick No need 2 brag Got ya girl doing that While I'm working 4 grammys I done been through it all So there aint shit u can hand me That I can't handle I'm walking through the dark With no candle But the music is my light So with the mic I could tan u Feel the burn Arrogant artists When will they learn It's only ya turn When it's ya turn & u deserve it From the people Opportunity knock I'm at the peep hole Making sure it's the good kind & not the evil It's not enough When they say the sky's the limit When they say the sky's the limit It's not enough I want it all I want it all Sometimes we cry Sometimes we sing Some of us work While others just dream I promise u this There's no in between We all gone get What we got coming

It's them tornado lights in the Midwest It's them 'scrapers on the planes in the Midwest It's the city on the lake in the Midwest It's that city killing tapes out the Midwest Ok here we go Light the dro Let's show em how the windy blow Get yo plate This that state Where u gotta Go Ill 4 the dinner steak Hit the interstate 94 What a night 2 roll Southside grow Hey Northside grow Westside 2 Best side view Is from where I stand We the best times u Stress finds who? Those that wait For the last time Don't call it hate They just envious We the illiest & oh so cold Man I'm serious Period We bleed on tracks Blunts stay big Put the needles back Fiends need crack So we feed em that Drug music for the people jack Where the weed booth at? Taste of the Chi Minneapolis reach for the sky Bumping loud when we breeze on by No huff allowed When we chief & ride Let's go! It's them tornado lights in the Midwest It's them 'scrapers on the planes in the Midwest It's the city on the lake in the Midwest It's that city killing tapes out the Midwest I smoke my lime just 2 pass the time Keep it on the grind never wait on mine Imma make sure that we get our shine Stay on the road like them broken lines Hope my people see the future with an open mind These the days we go through to climb Broke feel like blind When u aint seeing paper Problems pile up real high Stuck still i'm Giving all I got I'll stop til I'm Under the dirt Like an earthworm with rhymes Still i'm alive This is really me when I Kick my lines This my life Yeah I want a girl But the beat my wife Marry the track Then I'll bury the mic Killing these fools with my lyrical tool U swore was a knife Chopping em down When they copy my style These biters aint writers When jocking my style I'm rocking the crowd with ease please U don't wanna mess with me G-E-T Off my sac Lemme breathe geez We Be Talking raps so the seed see U can be more than a dealer on the block Crime don't pay cuz criminals shot Criminals locked Locked in a box But they aint gone stop Watch Watch how they lose When they test my mic I'm giving all I can 2 the music 4 the rest of my life It's them tornado lights... It's them 'scrapers on the planes... It's the city on the lake... It's that city killing tapes... It's them tornado lights in the Midwest It's them 'scrapers on the planes in the Midwest It's the city on the lake in the Midwest It's that city killing tapes out the Midwest

about

Everyday, we as people are tasked with raising and providing for a family, working long hours for little pay, fighting for human rights, and at the same time, trying to find time to love ourselves. Rarely do we get a trophy. Longshot's 10th studio album, 'Champion', celebrates the everyday winner and hero inside of each and every one of us. For production on this project Shot enlists long time musical partner TGIK. The duo follows up their debut collaboration, 2016's 'Struggle Music', with a timeless summer piece that's perfect for a picnic, protest, or just posted at the crib. A portion of the sales from this album will be redirected to community organizations in Chicago and Minneapolis working for social justice and equal human rights. 'Champion' available 8.7.20
