Moneys Just A Touch Away Lyrics

    [mack 10]
    This song is dedicated
    To all the up and coming rappers, singers, hustlers, actors
    Whatever you may be remember:
    Without no struggle, you get no progress
    So keep grindin, keep on mashin, get yours

    Chorus: gerald levert

    You're nothin far from comin up (keep on)
    Money's just a touch away (keep on)
    So keep on grindin don't give it up (keep on)
    There'll always be another day (keep on)

    [mack 10]
    And now i'm sittin at the pad, teary eyed and depressed
    Starvin and sufferin from mental stress
    Now a true center to the game of beginner
    But hard to feel like a winner when you eat spreads for dinner
    Hit the streets late night in the form of star mushin
    On the 211 mission just to pay tuition
    For my kids i got to grind and develop street saavy
    Servin stress cause i just ain't got enough to cop cavi
    But i can't stop, i won't stop, til i got it made
    Either build my clientele, get a job or learn a trade
    Like hip-hop, and make enough to live good forever
    So i learned to write the rhymes and get my metaphors together
    Then i joined a rap crew, with the homies on my street
    Sellin underground tapes out the local swap meet
    Gettin tighter on the mic, as i worked day to day
    So now i lay down at night, and i hear voices say, "mack"


    [mack 10]
    Now i'm new to the scene, h as in hard, n as in nympho
    So like epmd, could you _please listen to my demo?_
    I left the local crew, felt like i was the man
    In popular demand and now ready for soundscan
    So i searched for a deal with no luck i kept rappin
    Felt like it would take a miracle to make it all happen
    Marble said it was a test, "mack don't do nuttin wrong!
    Just have faith in god and keep your hustle goin strong
    Stay hongry, keep writin, don't quit you're too close
    Remember good things come to those who want it most"
    So i never left the house, without my rap book
    Thought i found a new crew but eventually got shook
    First they said i was cool, but then started to doubt me
    Put me on the backburner and just forgot all about me
    Partna said i wasn't fresh, and sent me on my way, but you know what?
    As i was leavin, i could hear voices say, "mack"


    [mack 10]
    Now the tables turned, but i remember they used to clown me
    The hard work paid off, and luck finally found me
    So call every publication, billboard and the editor
    And tell em mack's being signed by dude workin on _the predator_
    I got the midas touch, now everything be the bomb
    Hooked up with the don, now made a few mill-ion
    I don't bang i write the good rhymes, you know about mines
    Man i'm the tightest mc, ice cube ever signed
    Now if ain't the radio, it's a video shoot
    Livin life in the limelight, with a bank full of loot
    Now my crew is solid, shook the haters and the leeches
    Runnin full court at my house with our girls on the beaches
    Plus the violence is ceased, no more bi-coastal beef
    Cause now i get down with the north south and the east
    I reminisce on hard times, seem like yesterday, but now
    Hoo bangin' is official and i remember they used to say, "mack"


    [levert] money's just a touch, just a simple touch
    Money's just a touch away..
    Money's just a touch, just a simple touch
    Money's just a touch away..

    [mack 10] man i knew i was gonna make it, but they didn't believe me
    Yaknowhati'msayin? clowned me -- gon' be a rapper, what?
