  • This is why I do this shit
    I think they call this, uh, venting

    Yea
    Look
    Uh

    This is me
    Still the same
    They want the hits
    I play the game
    No auto tune, but you can feel the pain
    It all comes spilling out like I hit a vein
    What up lil' braw
    What up slumville
    I hope you know that y'all the reason I have fun still
    The fans thinking that we all signed for one mill
    Equal opportunities rapping, that shit is unreal
    That ain't how it works
    That ain't that how it goes
    And I been getting high to balance out the lows
    And I could use a writer to balance my flows
    But I never share my thoughts,
    This is all a nigga knows
    And every time I try, it opens up my eyes
    These verses are a chance to remembered and reprized
    And I would be performing just as long as I'm alive
    So every word I utter will be mine

    Don't believe the lies
    Look me in my eyes
    Please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me
    I remember you
    This feeling isn't new
    So please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me

    Don't take this the wrong way but
    I never cried when Pac died
    But I probably will when Hov does
    And if my tears hold value,
    Then I would drop one for every single thing he showed us
    And I'll be standing in a puddle
    I stay away from niggas that could land me in some trouble
    And I'ma keep it honest
    Am so tired of being subtle
    It's just me, Forty, O, and Nich standing in a huddle
    Staring at the members of my team
    Who get questioned about they profit from this from million dollar scheme
    Just know that am in debt for you defending all our dreams
    I hope you tell your family this shit ain't what it seems
    But yall the reason for a lot of my devotion
    You know I spend money because spending time is hopeless
    And know I pop bottles 'cause I bottle my emotions
    At least I put it all in the open

    Don't believe the lies
    Look me in my eyes
    Please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me
    I remember you
    This feeling isn't new
    So please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me
    Oh oh oh oh oh uh

    Look
    Fuck all y'all
    We ignore feelings here
    Premature millionaires
    Welcome to my realest year
    Yeah
    I swear we making a killer here
    I should be on top of the world here just chillin' here
    Uh
    But it's funny having fans
    Who find you before anybody ever has the chance,
    And build you up so you could be the biggest in the game
    And realize when your there, sometimes the shit don't feel the same
    Yeah
    And plus things are just so real at home
    People think I've changed just because my appeal's grown
    And now security follow me everywhere
    So I'm never actually am alone, I just always feel alone
    I think I'm scared of what the future holds
    I was wishing for some things and now am used to those
    Every girl I meet thinks I'm fucking groupie hoes
    The honesty of my music has left me too exposed
    All my old friends think I got a new crowd
    And people seem to notice every time I do smile
    I guess that mean they come few and far between
    Even though am living out what you would call the dream
    Yeah
    And my uncle ain't even messaging me
    And him missing in my life is kind of messing with me
    I hope this isn't one of those forever things
    It's funny how money can change everything

    Don't believe the lies
    Look me in my eyes
    Please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me
    I remember you
    This feeling isn't new
    So please don't be scared of me
    Please don't be scared of me
    Oh oh oh oh oh uh Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Chin Injeti, Daniel Tannenbaum, Khalil Abdul Rahman, Pranam Injeti
