    Every day that I'm alive, I'ma ride with the stick
    I'd rather be broke in jail than be dead and rich
    Told my brothers take my breath if I turn to a snitch
    But I'm 21 4L, ain't no way I'ma switch

    Break it down, I break it down
    I break it down, I break it down
    I break it down, I break it down
    I break it down, I break it down

    Penitentiary chances just to make a couple bucks
    My heart so cold I could put it in my cup
    Gang vs. the world, me and my dawg, it was us
    Then you went and wrote a statement, and that really fucked me up
    My brother lost his life and it turned me to a beast
    My brother got life and it turned me to the streets
    I been through the storm and it turned me to a G
    But the other side was sunny, I get paid to rap on beats

    How much money you got? (A lot)
    How many problems you got? (A lot)
    How many people done doubted you? (A lot)

    Break it on down, I break it on down
    I break it on down, I break it on down
    Yeah, I just came from the A
    I drove back home, six hour drive, six and a half
    Before I left I stopped by to see my nigga 21 in the studio
    He had two of his kids with him right in the studio, that's when I knew
    You a stand up nigga, I love seein' shit like that

    Question
    How many faking they streams? (A lot)
    Getting they plays from machines (A lot)
    I can see behind the smoke and mirrors
    Niggas ain't really big as they seem (Hmm)
    I never say anything (Nah), everybody got they thing (True)
    Some niggas make millions, other niggas make memes (Hmm)
    I'm on a money routine
    I don't want smoke, I want cream
    I don't want no more comparisons
    This is a marathon and I'm aware
    I been playing the back from a lack of promotions
    I never was one for the bragging and boasting
    I guess I was hoping the music would speak for itself
    But the people want everything else
    OK, no problem, I'll show up on everyone album
    You know what the outcome will be
    I'm batting a thousand
    It's got to the point that these rappers don't even like rappin' with me
    Fuck it 'cause my nigga 21 Savage just hit me
    And told me he saved me a spot, on a new record he got
    He call it "a lot," I open my book and I jot
    Pray for Tekashi, they want him to rot
    I picture him inside a cell on a cot
    'Flectin' on how he made it to the top
    Wondering if it was worth it or not
    I pray for Markelle 'cause they fucked up his shot
    Just want you to know that you got it, my nigga
    Though I never met you, I know that you special
    And that the Lord blessed you, don't doubt it, my nigga
    Dennis Smith Jr., stay solid, my nigga
    I'm on a tangent, not how I planned it
    I had some fans that hopped and abandoned ship
    When they thought that I wasn't gon' pan out, I got a plan
    They say that success is the greatest revenge, tell all your friends
    Cole on a mission, cementin' the spot as the greatest that did it
    Before it all ends, nigga

    How much money you got? (A lot)
