  • I look up
    So many (On my don shit)
    So, so many
    If Young Metro don't trust you, I'm gon' shoot you

    I done made sacrifices, so many sacrifices
    I done gave up so much free time knowing time ain't free
    Fuck it I sacrificed it
    My girl show me love, she know I made sacrifices
    And if it's real real love then you make sacrifices
    To get ahead man you gotta make sacrifices
    Fuck it though that's how hungry my appetite is

    Fuck what you telling me, I sense the jealousy
    I got telepathy, I got the recipe
    I got the streets and I don't got no felonies
    Forward thinking yeah my mind is ahead of me
    Momma said it's gonna be whatever you let it be
    It's some homies I grew up with that's dead to me
    It's some niggas that I just met in debt to me
    What's in common is they both pay respect to me
    I get it my way from Friday to Friday
    My girl is a mix of Aaliyah and Sade
    I came a long way from that Marvin and Chardonnay
    I pull out the driveway like I'm in a car chase, speeding
    And if my bitch cheat she know I'm leaving
    No text no call, boy that bitch airplane mode code
    No peacoat no time to change clothes, same clothes
    Love if you living by the same code, G code, leave ho
    Fuck it you dead to me, back to my destiny
    Penthouse, birds eye view that's a nest for me
    I got my self out of debt
    So when you see me know you're somebody I'll never need

    Sacrifices, so many sacrifices
    I done gave up so much free time knowing time ain't free
    Fuck it I sacrificed it
    My girl show me love, she know I made sacrifices
    And if it's real real love then you make sacrifices
    To get ahead man you gotta make sacrifices
    Fuck it though thats how hungry my appetite is

    I cut the fuck shit drama out my energy
    Focused on the inner me, never on the enemy
    And I done sacrificed my own time
    I done sacrificed my own mind
    I done sacrificed the club life
    I done sacrificed my love life
    I cut the fuck shit drama out my energy
    Focused on the inner me, never on the enemy
    And I done sacrificed my own time
    I done sacrificed my own mind
    I done sacrificed the club life
    I done sacrificed my love life

    I done sacrificed the thug life
    Diamonds shining ain't no dull life
    Drop my top to get my mind right
    Pull up in the 'Rari, loud pipes
    Bitch I'm the don, my wrist a hundon
    Ooh yeah Gucci python ooh yeah
    She play with her tongue
    Yeah, I bought that bitch a new charm
    Lil nigga pop when I told him come see about me (Come on come see me)
    The devil had entered my soul, my momma had beat it out me
    Remember my grandmama had told me you better be somebody
    Hop in my seats massaging (aye)
    Watch how I leave the posse
    I made an M deposit

    Paid all these dues with the game (yeah yeah)
    Sacrificed yo stripes for that stain (Sacrifice)
    Heard you sacrificed your life for that chain (yeah yeah)
    She sacrificed that money for cocaine (white, phew, coco)
    Left hand got three rings
    That's Bron Bron, we up one
    Bad bitch she a savage
    Take her to the mall and buy her something
    That's gonna wanna make your friends come
    Make way with the Tommy gun
    Why can't y'all recognize that we all came from sacrifice?
    Why can't y'all recognize that we all came from sacrifice?
    Ten toes yeah you gotta stay down aye
    Just some young niggas looking for a way out, ayy
    People watchin', yeah I gotta skip town, ayy
    Hit my phone if you need a whole pound, ayy

    I done made sacrifices, so many sacrifices
    I done gave up so much free time knowing time ain't free
    Fuck it I sacrificed it
    My girl show me love, she know I made sacrifices
    And if it's real real love then you make sacrifices
    To get ahead man you gotta make sacrifices
    Fuck it though that's how hungry my appetite is

    I know my great, great, great aunty was a slave
    I could only imagine all the sacrifice she made
    I could only imagine all the shit she had to take
    I'mma make sure all the blood she gave wasn't in vain
    I sacrifice for your entertainment boy
    I'm Mr. Anderson in the Matrix
    Check the last name it's all facts
    And the human race is all about pacing
    Look at all the ones I outlasted
    I'm the one at the end like I count backwards
    Never satisfied details classified
    'Til the afterlife make a sacrifice, Don
