Premonition (Intro)

Album: Music to Be Murdered By (2020)
Charted: 67
  • Yeah
    So I guess this is what it is, huh?
    Think it's obvious
    We ain't never gonna see eye to eye
    But it's funny
    As much as I hate you
    I need you
    This is music to be murdered by

    Got a premonition
    I feel the end is near
    The beauty starts to fade
    My joy has turned to pain
    I hear the symphony playin'
    Ten thousand violins
    Souls floating away like feathers in the wind

    They said my last album I sounded bitter
    No, I sound like a spitter
    Who ninety percent of
    These hypocrites are tryna get rid of
    But why would I get a chip on my shoulder?
    I was considered, one time, as the illest
    Bitch, I'm still as fly as your zipper
    True, I just get richer
    But if it was ever all about skrilla
    Then I woulda quit a long motherfucking time ago
    Bitch, shut the fuck up
    I should go say that shit to Tech N9ne or the Jigga
    Nobody said shit about 2 Chainz as long as he's been here, shit
    No wonder you're mad, now I'm
    Looking at them plaques, count 'em (yeah)
    I'm L. L. Cool J, bigger and deffer, that's how come (uh)
    I sell like four mil' when I put out a bad album (what?)
    Revival flopped, came back and I scared the crap out 'em
    But Rolling Stone stars, I get two and a half outta
    Five, and I'll laugh out loud
    'Cause that's what they gave BAD back in the day
    Which actually made me not feel as bad now, 'cause
    If it happened to James
    It can happen to Shady
    They do the same shit to Brady
    More people hate me than love me
    This game will make you go crazy
    'Bout to go for B-R-O-K-E
    I was the G, the O-A-T
    Once I was played in rotation
    At every radio station
    They said I'm lyrically amazing
    But I have nothing to say
    But then when I put out Revival and I had something to say
    They said that they hated the awake me
    I lose the rage, I'm too tame
    I get it back, they say I'm too angry
    I need to get me some Dre beats
    No, I should hook up with Tay Keith
    Fans keep on pulling me one way
    Haters pull me in another
    Got more hooks in me than Swae Lee
    'Bout to pick up some weights and lift 'til my tattoo of Hailie's face stretches
    They said I'm just a whiner, I sound like a baby
    I dish it out but can't take it
    But I take it, dish it back out
    And they get all bent out of shape
    This shit's almost comical
    Wait, and I meant no disrespect
    I wasn't dissin' Tech, that was not a shot at 2 Chainz or to Jay-Z
    They probably feel the same way because lately
    Instead of us being credited for longevity
    And being able to keep it up for this long at this level, we
    Get told we'll never be what we were
    Bitch, if I was as half as good as I was
    I'm still twice as good as you'll ever be
    Only way that you're ahead of me's alphabetically
    'Cause if you diss me I'm coming after you like the letter V
    Killing everything, play this tune, it's your eulogy
    It's your funeral, prepare to die
    This is music for you to be murdered by Writer/s: Andre Young, Dawaun Parker, J. Alexander, Luis Resto, Marshall Mathers, Mark Batson, Nikki Grier
