  • Let's go

    Party in the penthouse, atop, passed the fuck out
    Reminiscing being broke and hoping I would luck out
    Nowadays I pull hoes, Swinging, never struck out
    Reinvested everything, just trying to get a buck out
    Will I ever make it? Felt fear on my life
    For a while I was going through a nervous patch
    Then I had the most insane year of my life
    Crazy, cause I only saw the surface scratched
    Yeah, waking up next to a random girl I never knew
    Goin' after Marilyn's instead of Sue's
    Tryna bring her backstage then see what she let me do
    Till security was like, "wait up, who the fuck are you?"
    Sent back to being almost done
    Opening up to shows I'm trying to get noticed on
    Labels calling the telephone that I wrote this on
    But I press decline, hit notes, and keep on going on
    Take a look at us, it's what you call a team
    Freight train, I'm leading everybody, full of steam
    Drinking simultaneously, rolling collard greens
    Maybe I was higher than a bitch and this was all a dream
    Still killing shows with Blizzy
    'Member being in this Jeep riding through the city
    Played them Endless Summer said get used to staying busy
    'Cause you'll never get a fallback, let's go and get a milli
    Brought 'em on tour just to live it
    Poppin' after parties with some girls who wanna to give it
    All my close homies keep me grindin' like a pivot
    Talkin' about a way to get it, we already did it!
    Switchin' lanes when that Porsche shifts
    Homies movin' weight just like a forklift
    When my album drops, Jedis can feel the force shift
    Meanwhile, you lyin-ass rappers droppin' horse-shit
    Only pay attention if you pay me
    Chilling with a Sarah and a Vicky and a Jamie
    Just a young man living life, could you blame me?
    Overcast is snowy but the titty bar is rainy
    Dreaming of a million wifes asleep on satin
    Homies always telling me to just keep on rapping
    I'mma blow the fuck up while you sleep on napping
    Fuck you want me to say?
