Verse Try to confuse me but they never knew me. They’re swinging I’m ducking their jabs. Knowing I’m knocking out all of this math cause I got it just give me the task. Tell em to test me. I’m nice with these numbers. Come see me. Don’t put up the cash. Shocking em all cause I came back and no one can stop me or hold me. So give me that work. I’m a take off. Quick like a driver with breaks off. Typical try to distract me. Mentally make em all fade off. Work through this math like I’ll never stop. Grind to the top while they try to block. Winning is for me. I’m major. They on me. Keep going. They debate to hate or support me. Regardless, the numbers they drop. Simple or not. I got these problems on lock. Operations in the bag. Subtract then I add, divide, multiply do the math. Focus on us never sleep. We’re scholar deep. Options we got em for keeps. We do it big we do nothing petite. Line up that work not a problem for me. Half of yaw doubt me. I know that yaw stuntin 20% got my back and I love it. 30% know I can but they frontin I’m a just ask you to keep it 100.

Verse I got some decimal numbers I must divide You know I start it off by making a division sign Always put my dividend in the inside Locate my divisor and I put it outside Move my divisor decimal to the right Every place value till there’s no more on the right Move my dividend decimal the same amount of times To the right. Place the decimal right above the line Then divide keep my mind on the quotient Stay away from haters cause they hate to see me focused See I got my answer if you’re nosy you should notice Quote this, I’ve been a scholar you should know this Hook You got a problem you should solve it. I ain’t stressing you But keep it moving I’m dividing with these decimals You got a problem you should solve it. I ain’t stressing you But keep it moving I’m dividing with these decimals Ah-yo!
3.
Hook Line em up, Line em up Adding with these decimals I line em up Line em up, Line em up Subtracting with these decimals I line em up Verse Two numbers with a decimal I got em Line em up one on top one on bottom Adding with these decimals I line em up Subtracting with these decimals I line em up Line em up, I put my tens in the tens place Then I put my ones in the ones place I put my tenths in the tenths place Then I put my hundredths in the hundredths place and so on I fill my blanks up with these zeros Gotta fill my blanks up with these zeros You know I fill my blanks up with these zeros Watch me add and subtract till I get it done
4.
Hook I gotta add these fractions Break it down let me show them what’s happening Hold up let me make sure they have the same denominators then I’m gonna get right back to adding (x3) Verse Any time my denominators different I’m looking for that LCM till I get it Turn that LCM into my new denominator Make equivalent fractions to get my numerator I take my numerators then I add them up (x2) Keep my denominator as my LCM (x2) When I get my sum I make it hotter than the summer Blazing through this work the more I work the more I come up I’m adding fractions this is something that I breeze through Check my answer simplify it if I need to I gotta add these fractions Break it down let me show them what’s happening Hold up let me make sure they have the same denominators then I’m gonna get right back to adding
5.
Verse I plot the point and never falling off track Came a long way and I’m never going back So anytime I hear a little thing about a coordinate plane I make a point to break it down with all facts. Check my perpendicular lines for the action. Me and my homies know em better as the axes. Anytime I travel left to right I’m moving on the x-axis. If it’s up and down, I’m on the y-axis whoa! Move like Dora I’m exploring this. They criss-cross in the middle at the origin. My x-axis has an x-coordinate and my y-axis has a y-coordinate. Bet. Find the x-coordinate. First due respect. After that, find the y-coordinate next. Make the two meet. Plot the point double check. Make the ordered pair where they connect. Depend on where I plot it, it’ll fall inside of one of four quadrants. Finding out which one I put it in you know I got it. Top right quadrant one, top left two, bottom left three, bottom right quadrant four. See I was busy learning never burning time in school Bruh. Ask my teacher if you don’t believe me. I’ve been cool Bruh. Plotting on this knowledge that’s what’s happening. This coordinate plane knowledge I’m the captain. Yeah. Hook Things change but some stay the same. Keep it simple and plain with my coordinate plane. (×4)

Verse Fill it up volume Make sure my formulas right Rectangular prism volume, length times the width times the height Dealing with a cube, man you know how we do we can do that with s cube Make my next move my best move, fill it up, fill it up, let me show you what the rest do Cone one-third pi r squared h Cylinder pi r squared h Volume of pyramid, one-third of b h Working with a sphere, get the volume, four-third times pi Times r to the third, put your hands up high!
7.
Verse Try to get me dizzy with these circles. Better let em know I got em. Getting the circumference never ever been my problem. First I find the radius from the center of my circle. Then from there it’s the distance to the edge of my circle. Better let em know the symbol pi approximately 3.14 every single time. So my circumference is 2 times pi times radius. It’s nothing to play with this is me being major Haters jocking my circumference. Hook They tried to take me round in circles. Watch me show em how I rock. They tried to take me round in circles. Watch me show em how I rock. Let’s go!
8.
Hook I got the formula. Get at me. Want the area of circle, just ask me. Yup. Can you put it in a rap please? Yup. While I rock to this hot beat. (x3) Verse Two ways we can get it either way we get it. First way we get it with the radius. Area of circle equals pi times r squared. Raise the roof high. See some hands down. Tell em put their hands up. Second way we get it with diameter. Area of circle equals one fourth times pi times d squared of course.

Hook Keep hustling determined unstoppable dreamers conquer math (x2) Verse My metric system comes in hand for my liter meter gram For any of these key units, I can put a prefix to it Kilo, hecto, deka, key unit Deci, centi, milli that’s how we do it Kilo, hecto, deka, key unit Deci, centi, milli Everytime I move my decimal to the right, I multiply by 10 alright When I move my decimal to the left, I divide by 10 oh yes My metric system comes in hand for my liter meter gram For any of these key units, I can put a prefix to it Kilo, hecto, deka, key unit Deci, centi, milli that’s how we do it Kilo, hecto, deka, key unit Deci, centi, milli Everytime I move my decimal to the right, I multiply by 10 alright When I move my decimal to the left, I divide by 10 oh yes Hook Keep hustling determined unstoppable dreamers conquer math (x4) Verse My metric system comes in hand for my liter meter gram For any of these key units, I can put a prefix to it Kilo, hecto, deka, key unit Deci, centi, milli that’s how we do it
10.
Hook See everybody wants a winner so they try to get me From every single angle they be coming at me See everybody wants a winner so they try to get me From every single angle they be coming at me See everybody wants a winner so they try to get me From every single angle they be coming at me See everybody wants a winner so they try to get me Verse Sum of complementary angles equal 90 Sum of supplementary angles be 180 Knowing these adjacent angles always share their vertex and a side Always stay side by side everyday all the time See these vertical angles share the same crossed lines See one, the others on the opposite side So if one of those angles equal 30, the other ones 30 Ay yo I know you heard me Hook From every single angle they be coming at me See everybody wants a winner so they try to get me (x4)

Verse In Pre-K, he had a spark fresh start managed to make growth marks on his charts teachers talked candid Said he had a big heart smiled mild mannered passed to a 3rd grade class with some loose cannons 25 deep, 5 live wires, 1 teacher for protection on her solely he’s relying Mid-year smile changed to smirk watch his growth collapse Gotta watch his back, parents yelling, “Get ya focus back.” Teacher begs for an assistant principal gets back Said they cut the budget a.k.a yo we too broke for that It’s only five months left try to cope with that Broke up a fight and hurt her back and never did come back Daily subs in heavy rotation, his smirk replaced with daily straight faces He goes numb to all the changing faces Passed along from grade to grade even though he lacks Probably never dropped out if he got that time back Dang I wish he got that time back.

Hook I do this for Hip-Hop, and for my scholars headed to the top When the times get hard, go hard, give ya all show em what you got I do this for Hip-Hop, and for my scholars headed to the top When the times get hard, go hard, give ya all and you don’t stop (x2) Verse Do this for Imani, for the rose in the concrete For the toddler in the back of the car rapping hard in the car seat I do this for the leaders, for the everyday dreamers Never fall stand tall anytime shutting down non-believers I do this for the kid shot, walking home after school while the blocks hot For the hot head shooting till he gets shot For the loved ones praying that it all stops For a child on a mission for a better life Working hard in the class till he gets it right For the teachers grading papers on the late night Working hard even if the pay ain’t right For the ones on the brink of a way out Fighting not to fall back down on their way out Do this for the single parents making ends meet For the parents working hard every single week For my husband James Finney down to ride with me For Adean and Eli and Nesya Finney Grimsley, Errole, shout out MP Beatz Thank God for my team LM2 complete
