  • I been waitin' on this
    Yeah

    All of this disorder, no addressin'
    The crown is broken in pieces, but there's more in my possession
    There's a whole lot in my possession
    Who do you really love? Well, that's sure to be in question
    My Mount Rushmore is me with four different expressions
    Who's givin' out this much return on investment?
    After my run, man, how is that even a question?
    After this summer, man, how is that even a
    I've had real Philly niggas try to write my endin'
    Takin' shots with the GOAT and talk about shots that we sendin'
    I've had scuffles with bad boys that wasn't pretendin'
    I've had too many nights to mention, that's just the beginnin'
    I'm pretty sure we got a label, I'm still independent
    I fell back a hundred times when I don't get the credit
    Seen this movie a hundred times, I know where it's headed
    Realize someone gotta die when no one'll dead it
    Niggas gamblin' with they life for some content
    That's the type of lottery that could get your top picked
    I am a cream-of-the-crop nigga
    You niggas pop mollies, my Mali's pop niggas
    House on both coasts, but I live on the charts
    I have tea with the stars and I swim with the sharks
    And I see in the dark, wasn't this cold at the start
    Think my soul has been marked, there's a hole in my heart
    Yeah, I was about to, man, I thought about it
    It's unsettlin' to talk about it
    Free all of my niggas that they caught with it
    RIP my niggas that they caught without it
    This just the intro, let me not get ahead of myself
    This is God's plan, young man, you said it yourself
    Always got a ace up my sleeve for whatever was dealt
    Daddy got suits like Bernie Mac, he dresses himself
    I stopped askin' myself and I started feelin' myself
    Now I gotta deal with all this drama and deal with myself
    I ain't even have to cut the tie, it severed itself
    This just the intro, let me not get ahead of myself Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Ernest Dion Wilson, Klaus Netzle, Manuel Landy, Noah James Shebib
