D-Lyt - Learning Curve lyrics

[Produced by D-Lyt] [Verse 1] Zakk Scott that's the name, I'm here to lyrically ease the pain Of those who listen with broken wishes, wondering why life be this way Also here to make a name for me, and D's here making banging beats We're unfailingly creative and one day we'll change the game, you see I'm honest I'm a novice, and I got a lot of stuff to learn But every time I drop a verse the words are hot enough to burn Don't care about cash, only in it for the credit Don't expect me to take my exit until the sh** I spit's respected My objective is perfection and I'm not gonna stop until I have that Which is why even on a slow beat I rapidly rap, never half-fast Too much respect for the craft to not give it my all when I make a song And if I don't pepper this with cleverness you'll take it with a grain of salt Pushing myself on every track is the only way I'll get better Because how I can be the best ever if I don't give it my best effort? I want respect for working hard, but I gotta earn it first And that's what this is all about - welcome to the Learning Curve [Hook] The learning curve The learning curve Welcome, welcome, welcome to The learning curve The learning curve The learning curve Welcome, welcome, welcome to Welcome to the learning curve [Verse 2] D introduced me to the game when he played me Eminem's “Not Afraid” And as soon as the track was finished I knew in that instant that I'd gotta play Not even because it was great music or seeing that I could relate to it The reasoning was when my demons showed up, I could escape through it Better than being poured up, instead of mixing liquor I found solace from my problems bumping artists paint their vivid pictures Whether Biggie rapping about life in BedSty on Ready to Die Or 2Pac spitting conscious lyrics, that Henny supplied the deadliest lines I bumped Nas's "Dance" on repeat when my mom died Then Jay taught me if I was feeling sad I should make the Song Cry So I took everything that was bottled inside, prodded my mind, and thought of some lines Fast forward a couple years jotting and dropping those rhymes and now you're caught up in time Rap has got me by, and I want to return the favor So to anyone out there struggling I'll be your suburban savior Because I don't know about time, but music can heal all wounds You'll feel better when you close your eyes and turn up the volume [Hook] [Verse 3] I don't call myself a rapper yet, that's a title, I have to earn that I'm far from being perfect, I've got a ton to learn and work at Sometimes I wonder if playing this game is something I have the heart for I often don't even know if I can contribute to this art form I tell myself it's nothing, and reason having doubt is par for the course But even so I feel as though I bullseye'd the wrong dartboard Then D sends me a beat, and all of the doubt I ever had vanishes I realize rap means too much to me, and I could never abandon it So whenever I'm pouting and doubting myself and I'm wondering why I bother to play I remember that I was brought up in pain and so I've got a unique view to offer the game I'm not rapping for myself I'm rapping for others, specifically those who are trapped in their struggles Who want to collapse in a bundle but there's a reason you're knees haven't yet buckled There's an end to your troubles, an end to the tunnel, you don't even know what you're capable of You're stronger than what you have suffered, you can overcome and become so unbreakably tough All it takes is the resolve to keep on fighting back And if you ever need any help, well that's the reason why I'm writing raps [Hook]
