    Hey, I'm back, so what's the deal now?
    I still don't give a fuck 'bout how they feel now
    I got you hot, lil' nigga, chill out
    Say you coming for the spot? Bitches will spill now (spill niggas)
    Either staying in the game, bro
    Fuck the niggas waiting on Young Tiller to change up
    Niggas waiting on me to run out of paper
    I don't ever speak on niggas, nah, I barely say much
    Fuck, I look like, bringing niggas names up?
    I can't let a fuck nigga get famous
    These niggas, they wanna de-fame us
    They wanna betray us, they wanna play games, oh no, no
    Disloyal, this how they won't portray us
    Looked at my dog like, "Fuck it, let's make 'em hate us"
    If you got paid for the attention that you paid us
    You would be a rich nigga but you just a bitch nigga
    Foreign whip, make you throw a fit, nigga
    Foreign bitch, I know you won't get with her
    Lame niggas not the type that she consider
    You thinking of speaking with her, boy, you better reconsider
    Hey, I'm my daughter's keeper
    And I don't take with the threats, or promises either, nigga
    You gon' have to see me some day one way or another
    And for my blood, bruh, I'm a cold motherfucker (so)

    Before you judge me
    Check yourself before you judge me
    Hey, shit could get ugly
    Next time you might not be so lucky
    What you want from me?
    What these niggas want from me?
    This a, "Don't fuck with me"
    Hey, think twice before you fuck with me

    What it is yo?
    2016, Tiller on this shit, so
    Most likely I'ma vent up on this shit, so
    Well, um, damn, here it go
    You see the shit is so new to me, bro
    Not the music, that's easy, it come smooth to me, bro
    When I should've been in school, I was making tunes truancy, bro
    Low-key, them cool kids weren't as cool as me, bro
    I fell in love and had a mini me, thank you Jesus
    Ten fingers, ten toes on her pretty feet, seriously, thank you Jesus
    Pray for it every day in them UPS trailers
    And you gave her to me like I asked, that's amazing, Jesus
    I know the saying, give them an inch and they take a mile
    But Jesus I really need this, I gotta make it out
    Studio shit on eBay, I gotta purchase
    I told my niggas, "Lend me 600 dollars, it'll be worth it, let's cop it" (check, check, check, check)
    So many times I second guessed myself, nigga, I never wanted to be an artist, nah (check, check, check, check)
    I don't wanna be the centre of attention but I guess I do this shit for lil' Harley, nah (check, check, check, check)
    If you know me, you know I just want to be able to walk into Target and people not be astonished
    Man, let me do my shopping
    But this in my job, I asked for it, I got it, let's go
    Just got a new manager, my last one was fucking up my vision
    Can't believe this nigga still tryna get a percentage
    I gave you back your investment, get out your feelings
    Telling people that the money changed me, nigga, the money saved me
    Nigga, money is the reason that you fuck with me, ain't it?
    And even though this shit got me angry, I'mma let God fix it
    'Cause I know if I fix it, my daughter gon' have to grow up without a father figure
    I'ma end up in prison, wishing I never got into this business
    It's nothing personal, I made a business decision
    I might have a job for you if you shape or you could fill the position
    That's as real as it gets
    And sometimes I don't know how to deal with this shit
    I've been searching for the answers in my idol's music
    In his earlier days, man, I know he went through this
    He got through this, I'll get through it

    Before you judge me
    Check yourself before you judge me
    Hey, shit could get ugly
    Next time you might not be so lucky
    What you want from me?
    What these niggas want from me?
    This is a, "Don't fuck with me"
    Hey, think twice before you fuck with me

    Check yourself
    Check, check, check
    Check, check yourself before you wreck yourself
    Chiggity-check, check yourself before you wreck yourself
    Check yourself before you wreck yourself
    Yeah
    Check, check yourself before you wreck yourself
    Before you wreck yourself, check, check, check Writer/s: BRYSON TILLER, PHILLIP COLEMAN JR., RAMON IBANGA JR.
