Embed: Hope to see freddy G, Yusef G, love my G, Rolly G
Police watch me smoke my weed and count my G's
Got a lot of people countin' on me
And I'm just tryin' to find my peace
Should of finished school like my niece
Then I wouldn't finally wouldn't use my piece
Aw man, this pressure
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I remember havin' to take the dollar cab
Comin' home real late at night
Standin' on my feet all damn day
Tryin' to make this thing right
And havin' one of my co-workers
Say, "Yo you look just like
This kid I seen in the old Busta Rhymes
Video the other night"
Well easy come, easy
Go how that sayin' goes
No more broad service
Cars, and them TV shows
And I all had that snatched from me
And all the faculties
All turn their back on me
And didn't wanna hear a rap from me
So naturally, actually
Had to face things factually
Had to be a catastrophe
With the fridgest starin' back at me
'Coz nothing's there, nothing's fair
I don't wanna ever go back there
So I won't be takin' no days off
Until my spaceship takes off
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I wanna fly, I wanna fly
I said, "I want my chariot
To pick me up and take a brother for a ride"Lyrics provided by TANCODEhttps://damnlyrics.com/" readonly=""/>

Spaceship Lyrics


I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
Man, man, man, if my manager insults me again
I will be assaulting him
After I fuck the manager up
Then I'm gonna shorten the register up
Let's go back, back to the gap
Look at my check, wasn't no scratch
So if I stole, wasn't my fault
Yeah I stole, never got caught
They take me to the back and pat me
Askin' me about some khakis

But let some black people walk in
I bet they show off their token blackie
Oh now they love Kanye
Let's put him all in the front of the store
Saw him on break next to the 'No Smoking' sign
With a blunt and a marl
Takin' my hits, writin' my hits
Writin' my rhymes, playin' my mind
This fuckin' job can't help him
So I quit, y'all welcome
Y'all don't know my struggle
Y'all can't match my hustle
You can't catch my hustle
You can't fathom my love dude
Lock yourself in a room
Doin' five beats a day for three summers
That's a different world like cree summers
I deserve to do these numbers
The kid that made that
Deserves that Maybach
So many records in my basement
I'm just waitin' on my spaceship
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
Man, I'm talkin' way past the sky let's go, yeah
And I didn't even try to work a job
Represent the mob at the same time
Thirsty on the grind chi state of mind
Lost my momma, lost my mind
Life, my love that's not mine
Why you ain't signed? Wasn't my time
Leave me alone, work for y'all
Half of it's yours, half of it's mine
Only one to ball, never one to fall
Gotta get mine, gotta take mine
Got a tech nine, reach my prime
Gotta make these haters respect mine
In the mall till twelve
When my schedule wore headset nine
Puttin' those pants on shelves
Waitin' paitently I ask myself
Where I wanna go? Where I wanna be
Life is much more than runnin' in the streets
Holla at 'ye, hit me with the beat
Put me on my feet, sound so sweet
Yes I'm the same old G, same goatee stayin' low key, nope
Holler at God, "Man why'd you had to take my folks?"
Hope to see freddy G, Yusef G, love my G, Rolly G
Police watch me smoke my weed and count my G's
Got a lot of people countin' on me
And I'm just tryin' to find my peace
Should of finished school like my niece
Then I wouldn't finally wouldn't use my piece
Aw man, this pressure
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I remember havin' to take the dollar cab
Comin' home real late at night
Standin' on my feet all damn day
Tryin' to make this thing right
And havin' one of my co-workers
Say, "Yo you look just like
This kid I seen in the old Busta Rhymes
Video the other night"
Well easy come, easy
Go how that sayin' goes
No more broad service
Cars, and them TV shows
And I all had that snatched from me
And all the faculties
All turn their back on me
And didn't wanna hear a rap from me
So naturally, actually
Had to face things factually
Had to be a catastrophe
With the fridgest starin' back at me
'Coz nothing's there, nothing's fair
I don't wanna ever go back there
So I won't be takin' no days off
Until my spaceship takes off
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I've been workin' this graveshift
And I ain't made shit
I wish I could
Buy me a spaceship and fly, past the sky
I wanna fly, I wanna fly
I said, "I want my chariot
To pick me up and take a brother for a ride"

Kanye Omari West (born June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia) is a Grammy award winning rapper, producer, author, designer and singer.

He began making beats and rapping in the early 90s in Chicago, IL, United States when he formed the rap group Go Getters with Chicago natives GLC and Really Doe. He later gained nationwide popularity in New York when he began producing tracks for artists such as Jay-Z, Twista, Mase, Talib Kweli and Alicia Keys.

In 2004 (after being pushed aside by many record companies who felt he wasn't a marketable hip hop artist), he managed to release his debut solo album, The College Dropout on Roc-a-Fella Records. The album received critical acclaim, defining the style for which West would become known: "wordplay" and heavy sampling of 70s soul and rnb tracks. He is also known for his politically-charged rhymes and controversial behavior both inside and outside the realms of music.

He has since released four more albums, all of which have received numerous awards, high commercial success and critical acclaim. Late Registration (2005); Graduation (2007); 808s & Heartbreak (2008); and his current album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010).

Personal life:
West was born in Atlanta, Georgia. When he was three years old (as mentioned in Hey Mama) his parents divorced, and he moved with his mother to Chicago, Illinois. His father, Ray West, was a former Black Panther; one of the first black photojournalists at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution; and is now a Christian counselor. Kanye’s late mother, Dr. Donda West, worked as a Professor of English at Clark Atlanta University, and the Chair of the English Department at Chicago State University before retiring to serve as Kanye’s manager. He was later raised in an upper middle class background, attending Polaris High School in suburban Oak Lawn, Illinois after living in Chicago.

After attending The American Academy of Art, a Chicago art school, West attended Chicago State University but eventually dropped out due to poor grades and in order to continue working on his music career. While attending school, West produced for local artists, including on rapper Grav’s debut album ‘Down to Earth’. He later gained fame by producing hit singles for major hip hop/R&B artists, including Jay-Z, Talib Kweli, Cam’ron, Paul Wall, Common, Mobb Deep, Jermaine Dupri, Scarface, The Game, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson and John Legend among others. He also “ghost-produced” for his once mentor Deric Angelettie according to his song “Last Call” and the credits of Nas’ “Poppa Was a Playa.”

West’s style of production often utilizes pitched-up vocal samples, usually from soul songs, with his own drums and instruments. The first major label song he produced was "The Truth" by Beanie Sigel, and his first major release featuring his trademark vocal sampling style was “This Can’t Be Life,” a track from Jay-Z’s The Dynasty: Roc La Familia. West said he sped up the drum beat of Dr. Dre’s “Xxplosive” to use as a replacement for his drums on “This Can’t Be Life.”

West has said that Wu-Tang Clan producer RZA influenced him in his style, and has said on numerous occasions that Wu-Tang rappers Ghostface Killah and Ol’ Dirty Bastard were some of his all-time favorites. Said by Kanye West: “Wu-Tang? Me and my friends talk about this all the time… We think Wu-Tang had one of the biggest impacts as far as a movement. From slang to style of dress, skits, the samples. Similar to the [production] style I use, RZA has been doing that.”

Kanye West recently won 4 Grammy Awards for his album Graduation. He performed his hit song “Stronger” at the 2008 Grammys and a new lyrical version of “Hey Mama” as a tribute to his mother’s death in 2007.

On November 22, 2010, Kanye West released his fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. His five albums, all of which have gone platinum, have received numerous awards, including a cumulative fourteen Grammys, and critical acclaim. All have been very commercially successful, with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy becoming his fourth consecutive #1 album in the U.S. upon release. On 17 December 2010, Kanye West was voted as the MTV Man of the Year by MTV.
