He lifted his voice like weights in a gym
Greatness oozed from him at an early age.
Each of his lyrics are like ghetto hymns.
To uplift himself from off of the page.
His walk was righteous and in concert with
His ideal of making money real.
Now his artistry was never a myth
He ingrained himself in the minds to seal.
He ambled like a CEO of a
Fortune 500 company. His gait
Represented a brand new, clean spring day.
He performed for those who just had to wait.
For his time at the center of the stage
He seemed like a nobleman left by age.
