  • Call it how it is
    Hendrix
    I promise, I swear, I swear
    (If Young Metro don't trust you, I'm gon' shoot you) yo

    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Rep the set, gotta rep the set
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Don't chase no bitches

    Two cups, toast up with the gang
    From food stamps to a whole 'nother domain (we ridin')
    Out the bottom, I'm the livin' proof (super)
    Ain't compromising, half a million on the Coupe
    Drug houses, lookin' like Peru
    Graduated, I was overdue
    Pink molly, I can barely move
    Ask about me, I'm gon' bust a move
    Rick James, thirty-three chains
    Ocean air, cruisin' Biscayne
    Top off, that's a liability
    Hit the gas, boostin' my adrenaline

    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Rep the set, gotta rep the set
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Don't chase no bitches

    Four-door Maybach, I drive anything
    Buy my Range, make 'em go insane
    (Oh my Lord, praise him be) DJ EscoMoe City

    Uh
    I got a halo
    I level up every time God says so
    Shooter on payroll
    Lookin' like Pancho, lookin' like Pedro
    Run these streets like Tarzan
    Ten dividends gon' grow when I say grow
    Kung Fu Kenny with the Midas touch
    Ain't no Kenny that I don't touch
    All my enemies bite on dust
    Ain't no talkin' when it's fatal
    Havin' heart, I can't tell
    Half of y'all might need help
    I might fall in Rodeo (bitch)
    I might ball in Austria (say no more)
    I might call her for real (say no more)
    All the ass gon' unveil
    Wind blows in the windows
    And I snuck in with a velcro
    She copy like 10-4
    Know it's sinful
    Platinum, platinum, platinum
    Gotta look at self and ask what happened
    How y'all let a conscious nigga go commercial
    While only makin' conscious albums?
    How y'all let the braids on TV?
    How y'all let the hood at the table?
    Now y'all don't even know how to rate him
    Niggas lookin' like I'm a create-a-player
    Everybody who didn't pay respect
    Gotta 'fess up now and pay your debt
    Gotta lay somethin' down if makin' threats
    Gotta say somethin' now, don't hold your breath
    I mean, I'm floatin'
    I got the sauce, got the potion
    I got 'em all in convulsions
    And emotions, I put the career in negotions
    And put the body in the ocean
    I made an oath when
    My nigga told me to go in
    Then he died on a cold bench
    All my old friends livin' life on a slow end
    Gotta keep shit rollin'
    It's deep (It's deep)
    I done fucked so much I can't sleep
    I done fucked so much I'm retired (swear to God)
    I'm 'bout to live my life through Dave Free (swear to God)
    She said she broke down when Prince died (it's alright)
    Bitch my hair down, Prince live through me (I am Prince)
    Get your ass up and be inspired (get inspired)
    You know how many bodies in the street? (how many?)
    Take the mask off so you can see

    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Rep the set, gotta rep the set
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Percocets, molly, Percocets
    Chase a check, never chase a bitch
    Don't chase no bitches

    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Mask on, fuck it, mask off
    Gas gone, never nod off
    Ten, ten tears
    Mine, said the Lord Writer/s: Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, Leland Tyler Wayne, Nayvadius Demun Wilburn, Tommy Z. Butler, William Moore

  • A Guy Who Disagrees With John From South CarolinaSeriously? That’s what you took from that song? You decided it was about shooting someone? It’s a song about duality, mask on/mask off is a representation of that as well as being fake or being real. It’s more of a “started from the bottom” song, not some wild revenge fantasy.
  • John from South CarolinaHe's saying f--k it pulling a ski mask off and shooting someone. Molly percocet is what he's on while he's pulling the robbery. Chasing that check.
