Album: B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time (2013)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This track finds 2 Chainz in nightmare mode, imagining himself transported back to the streets selling crack because no one's buying hip hop anymore. He spits:

    "I had a dream that rap wouldn't work
    I woke up on the block, had to hit it with the fork."

    The second line is one of several references that Tity Boi makes on B.O.A.T.S II: Me Time to cooking up dope in his kitchen.
  • The song's music video finds 2 Chainz's nightmare come to life as he returns to the trap house and relives his days as a dope peddler. As he said in his verse on Nicki Minaj's "Beez In The Trap":

    "If I weren't rapping I'd be trapping
    If I weren't trapping I'd be pimping."
