  • Wrote this shit, January 21
    Baby girl, I had to run, I'll be back a couple months
    Kendall turned 21, was up the street with 21
    They could see me online but they won't see me on the ones
    I got Dubai plates, in the California state
    I got her waitin' at my place, I got no baby on the way
    I'm talkin' Baby like Stunna, I'm talkin' Baby like Face
    Lost millions in the past, I'm talkin' maybe like eight
    Couple niggas from the city wishin' on a star, can they be like Drake
    Sorry no, not today, you gotta find your own way
    Big dog from the 6, I'm talkin' Dogg like Nate
    My shit be raw out the gate, I don't need another take
    40 got house on the lake, I ain't know we had a lake
    She complainin' how I'm late, I ain't know it was a date
    Niggas see me in person, first thing they say is, "I know you need a break"
    Hell naw, I feel great, ready now, why wait?
    Like a kiss from a rose, I could be the one to seal your whole fate
    So be careful what you think, think about what you gon' say
    Gotta deal with people straight, I got my 23's laced
    It's a marathon, not a sprint, but I still gotta win the race, yeah

    And I'm convinced
    I made sacrifices, I been ballin' ever since
    We seein' so many blessin's, shit don't make no sense
    Someone watchin' over us, so shout goes out to him
    Yeah, I'm convinced
    I made sacrifices, I been ballin' ever since
    Yeah, I did some wrong, I had no choice, in my defense
    Someone watchin' over us, so shout goes out to

    2 Chainz, I'm a real one
    Few shows, that's a mil run
    When she bust it down, I said, "Thanks for givin' to me," like a pilgrim
    Cold world, I be chillin'
    Earmuffs on the children
    Used to trap out the Hilton
    Got wood on the Cartiers, that's a face full of splinters
    Count a bankroll for dinner
    This the wrong place to enter
    Phone sex, just for breakfast
    All kinda women text us
    Met her at the Super Bowl, told her I stayed down the street from Texas
    A-Town, I stay down
    Yeah, it's all in the wrist
    This one here out the fence
    Trap jumpin' like the Carter
    Mean it jumpin' like Vince
    Moved on from the election
    Introduced her to the plug, can't believe they tried to take the connection
    Ooh, girl, you a blessin'
    Fine ass, be finessin'
    Yeah, I love my fans but I don't wanna take pictures in the restroom
    Drench God with the 6 God
    Point guard and the two-guard
    "Pretty Girls Like Trap Music" so I woke up with my wood hard

    And I'm convinced
    I made sacrifices, I been ballin' ever since
    We seein' so many blessin's, shit don't make no sense
    Someone watchin' over us, so shout goes out to him
    Yeah, I'm convinced
    I made sacrifices, I been ballin' ever since
    Yeah, I did some wrong, I had no choice in my defense
