Wale kicks off his first verse by interpolating some 2Pac rhymes.I'm gettin' mine like fine wine measured in time
Many other brothers loved you but this pleasure is mine
The lyrics are from 2Pac's second verse on his 1997 collaboration with John B, "Are U Still Down." Wale explained in a Genius attribution
: "I just always thought that it was real smooth. I just paid homage to one of the greatest of all time, and setting a tone for where I'm going on the record."
