  • How I'm feeling, it doesn't matter
    'Cause you know I'm okay
    Instead, I ask myself "why do you hurt me?"
    When you know, you know I'm the same
    I know, I know that you love me baby
    They're trying to take you away from me
    Only over my dead body

    I think I killed everybody in the game last year, man fuck it I was on though
    And I thought I found the girl of my dreams at a strip club, mm
    Fuck it I was wrong though
    Shout out all to all my niggas living tax free
    Nowadays its six figures when they tax me
    Oh well, I guess you lose some and win some
    Long as the outcome is income
    You know I want it all and then some
    Shout out to Asian girls, let the lights dim sum
    Shots came, I don't know where they was sent from
    Probably some bad hoes about to take the hemp from
    Yeah, you know me well nigga
    Yeah, I mean you ain't the only real nigga
    They got me on these white women like Seal nigga
    Slave to the pussy but I'm just playing the field nigga, yeah
    Are these people really discussing my career again?
    Asking if I'll be going platinum in a year again
    Don't I got the shit the world wanna hear again?
    Don't Michael Jordan still got his hoop earing in?
    Man all of your flows bore me, paint drying
    And I don't ever be trippin' off of what ain't mine
    And I be hearing the shit you say through the grapevine
    But jealousy is just love and hate at the same time
    It's been that way from the beginning
    I just been playing, I ain't even know that I was winning
    And this is the only sound you should fear
    Man, these kids wear crowns over here and everything is alright

    I know, I know that you love me baby
    They're trying to take you away from me
    Only over my dead body

    You say I'm old news, well who the new star?
    'Cause if I'm going anywhere, it's probably too far
    Just performed at a Bar Mitzvah over in the States
    Used half of the money to beat my brother's case
    Red wine over Fed time
    But shout out to the niggas that's doing dead time
    And shout out to the bitches there when it's bedtime
    And fuck you to the niggas that think it's their time
    Yeah, don't make me take your life apart boy
    You and whoever the fuck gave you your start boy
    Or you wanna be a muthafuckin' funny guy?
    Don't make me break your Kevin heart boy
    Yeah, it's whatever. You know, feeling good, living better
    I think maybe I was numb to it last year
    But you know I feel it now more than ever
    My city love me like Mac Dre in the Bay
    Second album, I'm back paving the way
    The backpackers are back on the bandwagon
    Like this was my comeback season back, back in the day
    And I met your baby moms last night
    We took a picture together, I hope she frames it!
    And I was drinking at the Palms last night
    And ended up losing everything that I came with
    Feel like I've been here before huh?
    I still got ten years to go huh?
    And this is the only sound you should fear
    These kids wear crowns over here
    And everything is all right

    I know, I know that you love me baby
    They're trying to take you away from me
