  • Ayy, ayy
    Lot of 6's in here tonight
    Yeah, yeah, ayy

    Ten of us, we movin' as one (movin' as one)
    I'm so proud of who I've become
    You might think I've taken some lumps
    Only if we talkin' 'bout sums (yeah)
    Intentions are pure, they cannot tell me relax
    My mentions are jokes, but they never give me the facts
    This isn't that, can't be ignorin' the stats
    Based off of that, they gotta run me the max
    They gotta run me the max, they gotta double the racks
    They had it set up for real, but they didn't come with the slaps
    When I heard the I was skippin' through that
    If I get it trippin', it's no comin' back
    I don't understand, these gotta adapt
    You know where I'm at, I put the 6 on the map
    Your shorty was bent, she wanted to vent
    I promise it fell in my lap
    My money is young, my problems are old
    I promise I'm bridgin' the gap

    You know what I'm sayin'? (Woo)
    Ayy, ayy, yeah
    You know what I'm sayin'?
    (Gyeah, gyeah, gyeah, gyeah)

    Provoke, this ain't a joke, man, nobody playin'
    He's at the top and he's at the top, but nobody stayin'
    These around but they ain't around
    You know what I'm sayin'?
    Say that they down, when they is down
    You know what I'm sayin'?

    Yeah, you know what I'm sayin'?
    Ayy, ayy, yeah
    You know what I'm sayin'?

    Yo, get close enough to HOV, smell like a still
    First album 26, I ain't need no deal
    Already a hood legend, I ain't need no shine
    First Rollie flooded out, I ain't see no time, woah
    Stand-up niggas, we only duckin' indictments
    Dope boys, Off-White, lookin' like soft white on 'em, heh
    You know what I'm sayin'?
    We in the buildin', we came for a billion, ain't nobody playin'
    Live every word that I'm rappin'
    Said I lost 90 and it happened
    You probably wouldn't believe
    Everything that you seein' right now if it wasn't live action
    I ain't on the 'Gram, they record who I am
    God to these dope boys, how you not be a HOV fan?
    I'm what Meech shoulda been
    I'm what Supreme didn't become
    If Alpo didn't snitch, be like Young
    I got your president Tweetin', I won't even meet with him
    Y'all killed X, let Zimmerman live, streets is done

    You know what I'm sayin'?
    Ayy, ayy, yeah
    You know what I'm sayin'?

    Provoke, this ain't a joke, man, nobody playin'
    He's at the top, then he's at the top, but nobody stayin'
    These around but they ain't around
    You know what I'm sayin'?
    Say that they down, when they is down
    You know what I'm sayin'?

    Yeah, you know what I'm sayin'?
    Ayy, ayy, yeah
    You know what I'm sayin'? Writer/s: Andre Young, Andrew Noland, Aubrey Graham, Gregory Webster, Leroy Bonner, Marshall Jones, O'Shea Jackson, Paul Beauregard, Ralph Middlebrooks, Shawn Corey Carter, Walter Morisson
