  • Yeah, uh huh

    Uh, hardly home but always reppin',
    You hardly on and always second,
    When I'm awake you always restin',
    And when they call you the answer you will hardly question,
    I, I'm doin' classic shit in all my sessions,
    Other nigga's situations they are all depressin',
    That's why I never follow y'all suggestions,
    I just always did my own thing,
    Now I run the game, you stupid mudda-suckas
    I see all this money through my Ohio State buck eyes,
    Shit been goin' good, but good can turn to better,
    Cause you the type to lose her, and I'm about to get her

    And shawty wanna party so don't let yo girl up out the house
    Or there'll be shots on TMZ, of me givin' her mouth-to-mouth,
    Now she's famous and the paparazzi starts to shoot her,

    Time to shake these haters off like the skin of a Locus,
    Or maybe like a python that's the type a shit I'm on,
    I wrote this on my iPhone so let me drop this iBomb,
    I palm the game like its a Splading ball and take flight,
    From the free throw line and slam it down like I'm the great Mike
    Bun an Wayne an Drake in here man this goin' be a great night,
    Look at all these posers bite, our swagger like a great white,
    Try to cross me over I just fake left then I break right,
    Stupid animal tricks like David Letterman's Late Night,
    This that major moment you've been waitin' on for too long,
    The best that ever did it an doin' it on a new song,
    U-G-K an Young Money too strong
    Bound to be in the green like a crouton,
    So what the fuck is you on?
