  • Somewhere between psychotic and iconic
    Somewhere between I want it and I got it
    Somewhere between I'm sober and I'm lifted
    Somewhere between a mistress and commitment
    But I stay down, girl I always stay down
    Get down, have her lay down
    Promise to break everybody off before I break down
    Everyone just wait now
    So much on my plate now
    People I believed in they don't even show they face now
    What they got to say now?
    Nothin' they can say now
    Nothin' really changed but still they look at me a way now
    What more can I say now?
    What more can I say now?
    You might feel like nothin' was the same

    I still been drinkin' on the low
    Mobbin' on the low
    Fuckin' on the low
    Smokin' on the low
    I still been plottin' on the low
    Schemin' on the low
    The furthest thing from perfect
    Like everyone I know

    I just been drinkin' on the low
    Mobbin' on the low
    Fuckin' on the low
    Smokin' on the low
    I just been plottin' on the low
    Schemin' on the low
    The furthest thing from perfect
    Like everyone I know

    And I hate that you don't think I belong to ya
    Just too busy runnin' shit to run home to ya
    You know that paper my passion
    Bittersweet celebrations, I know I can't change what happened
    I can't help it
    I can't help it
    I was young and I was selfish
    I made every woman feel like she was mine and no one else's
    And now you hate me
    Stop pretendin', stop that frontin'
    I can't take it
    Girl don't treat me like a stranger
    Girl you know I seen ya naked
    Girl you know that I remember, don't be a pretender
    Gettin' high at the condo, that's when it all comes together
    You know I stay remniscin'
    And makeup sex is tradition
    But you been missin' girl
    And you might feel like nothin' was the same

    I still been drinkin' on the low
    Mobbin' on the low
    Fuckin' on the low
    Smokin' on the low
    I still been plottin' on the low
    Schemin' on the low
    The furthest thing from perfect
    Like everyone I know

    I just been drinkin' on the low
    Mobbin' on the low
    Fuckin' on the low
    Smokin' on the low
    I just been plottin' on the low
    Schemin' on the low
    The furthest thing from perfect
    Like everyone I know

    Drinkin', smokin', fuckin', plottin'
    Schemin', plottin', schemin', gettin' money
    Drinkin', fuckin', smokin', plottin', schemin'
    Plottin', schemin', getting money

    This the life for me
    My mama told me this was right for me
    I got em worried, like make sure you save a slice for me
    I should have Spoons, serve you up with a fork and knife for me
    Your actions make us doubt you
    Your lack of effort got me rappin' different
    This the shit I wanna go out to
    Play this shit at my funeral if they catch me slippin'
    Naked women swimming that's just how I'm living
    Donate a million to some children, that's just how I'm feeling
    A nigga filling up arenas, who the fuck can see us
    I had to Derrick Rose the knee up before I got the re-up
    Yours truly the boy
    I just build and build more
    Y'all niggas build and destroy
    You niggas party too much, man I just chill and record
    No filler, you feel it now if you ain't feel it before
    Yes Lord, this the shit I wanna go out to, yeah
    This the shit I wanna go out to

    Drinkin', smokin', fuckin', plottin'
    Schemin', plottin', schemin', gettin' money
    Drinkin', fuckin', smokin', plottin' Writer/s: Adrian Eccleston, Anthony George Palman, Aubrey Drake Graham, Cynthia Doreen Nunn, Marvin Thomas, Noah James Shebib
