Side Kick (The Jokerr)

Hey there SwizZzle, guess who it is? It's your old pal Jokerr and I'm giving you the biz Cause socio-politcally, we're never eye to eye But you're not a bad guy, and I consider you a friend And Frie-friends don't tell friends what they want to hear They always said a good friend is a good mirror I don't know who you have, but I'll be there for you I know it's gotta be tough (In the background) Looking at the crowd go nuts (Over that sound) And show after show, that you never headline, which how you long to do Woah, I know it's gotta be sad (In your minds eye) Seeing what you want so bad (From the sideline) Ohh poor SwizZzle, I can't even imagine, what you go through, I mean... It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, stuck living in the shadow of a giant So so hard With everybody watchin' cause you know they'll never understand It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, it doesn't matter how popular you might get So so hard When you're whole identity's defined by the efforts of another man It's gotta be It's hard on tour, knowing in your mind, If you didn't show up, the show would go along fine Cause, nobody wants to hear the right hand man, You and Krizz Kaliko could probably start your own hype man band Oh sure, you could both tour, go and hit the road and everything you've hoped for could be so yours Oh man, it'd be so grand, think about performing at a whole damn show of only your fans There'd be no Hop, no Dizzy, no Dame No half of ten percent of half the dough that the show bringed Everybody singing out your songs, buying your merch, girls wearing your shirts, screaming you're name Ooh-Ooh, think of that show, when the opening act's closed, The lights turn low, and you step on stage to that crowd dream And all ten crickets in the crowd sing It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, stuck living in the shadow of a giant So so hard With everybody watchin' cause you know they'll never understand It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, it doesn't matter how popular you might get So so hard When you're whole identity's defined by the efforts of another man It's gotta be It's gotta be tough on the sidelines, watching other rappers grind, tryna' get a little something goin' When you just sit there in your room on your lazy ass, getting thousands of dollars of free promotion I couldn't help but to notice how you talk about rich folks never give enough to help the people at the bottom Hey, but you sittin' gettin' your career fed to you on silver spoon of courtesy of Hopsin It's got to be hard It's got to be hard It's got to be hard Hey there SwizZzle, what's there to do, when the whole world's moving on without poor you? While Dizzy already dropped his album Four years and you're stilling sitting there without one Now I hate to be the one to break it to you baby boy, but I'mma make you face a fact many may avoid You're not as good an artist as you think you are. (As you think you are.) You don't shoot your own videos, Hop produces every beat you ever rocked, and even does your mixes, so How much expecting to be given yo, I mean are you gonna be able to stand up and take it upon yourself to get your own? No, no, no I didn't figure so, so until you get your own fans, bitch zip it closed My apologies, I shoudn't let it bother me, I mean after all It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, stuck living in the shadow of a giant So so hard With everybody watchin' cause you know they'll never understand It's gotta be, so so hard To be a sidekick, it doesn't matter how popular you might get So so hard When you're whole identity's defined by the efforts of another man It's gotta be
