Chorus
My rap name got famous before I did
If that aint futuristic tell me what is
"Oh you Future" no Future The Artist!
I'm having an identity crisis, yea

Verse 1
I aint rap Tony Montana but I watched Scarface last night
The deluxe edition with a pack of Swishas, quoted err line gettin high
That wasn't me in Racks on Racks. I aint got no radio smash
Cuz it's just me and Lazenby like '96 Jay and Dame Dash
I aint been Magic City but I'm always in the A
Just 4 hours away from Tennessee State capitol city where I stay
That wasn't me collabing with B. O. B, T. I., or Gucci
What make it worse, what make it hurt, that's a goal of mine eventually
But I got beat to it, by a dude with my same rap name
And I aint even saying he took it, but I shoulda looked into trademarking
Or chose a name more creative, less common, wont get taken
Cuz now people they mistaking me for somebody else, I aint him
I used to be just doing me, but it's 2 Future's so I'm doing us
I can prove I been using the name longer
But he famous, so I gotta change it up?
But I digress. This aint a diss, just a vent about my current predicament
You would swear I don't exist *poof*
FyЬTch!

Chorus

Verse 2
I'm not a xxl Freshman, have yet to get a magazines attention
6 years in the game that's patience.
What's experience if you don't learn lesosns
I count every one of my blessings,
Work too hard to focus on what I'm lacking
Thought I'd be signed by '05, I'm ready for the unexpected
When I 1st heard Racks on Racks I thought a 1 hit wonder
But he kept releasing hits 1 right after the other
Ain't no way around it, that right there my jam
In the club yellin lyrics to a Future song, that awkward moment when
Hold up, tell me this aint reality
When they yellin Future they don't mean me?
That's what my fans been calling me from Tennessee to overseas
I did a tour in South America Colombia
Before your video with Dominicans
I been Sci Fly since '09. What's astronaut status?
Pluto aint a planet
Took a while to get down with your movement
Uhhh, cuz my name you were using
But heres the bottom line, I'll never diss another brother on his grind
Same dream, same industry, with the same name
We on the same team
And right now you shining for the both of us
But what about me?

Chorus

Outro
The name Future doesn't hold the same meaning that it used to
Now you got Odd Future, J. Futurustic, Futuristic, Future Freebandz, then
You got me: og future nigga! The original. Og fyЬTch! Hahaha but you can
Just call me Mr. Flattop. And it don't stop. Can't no name change stop me.
