  • Over Soulprofessa's beat Cozz reflects on problems with friends and girls, flipping his difficulties into cathartic bars in which he finds confidence as an artist.

    Yeah, 'cause I got a lot of questions
    I'd rather ask first, I don't wanna second guess s--t
    Tell me why these niggas pride is bigger than they work ethic
    Bad at they struggle, but don't hustle to earn cheddar

    Cozz recalled to Genius: "I just remember it was an emotional time. I feel like I was with homies and just figuring s--t out. Just personal, inner things, with females and all types of s--t. I remember when that beat came on. It used to have a sample, and it said, 'Can I ask you something?' But I had my homie re-do it, 'cause sample problems. So when I heard that, the first thing I said was, 'Yeah, 'cause I got a lot of questions.' It just flew off the tongue after that."
