  • Look at me, pathetic nigga, this chain that I bought
    You mix greed, pain and fame, this is heinous result
    Let these words be the colors I'm just paintin my heart
    I'm knee-deep in the game and it ain't what I thought
    Copped the range rover my girl got the mercedes
    Iced out crazy I wanna shine like baby
    Compared to that nigga I ain't even got a bib yet
    Truth be told I ain't even bought a crib yet
    This is everything they told a nigga not to do
    Image is everything I see, it got a lot to do
    With the way that people perceive, and what they believe
    Money short so this jewelry is like a weave
    Meant to deceive and hear niggas say I see you
    Now bitches wanna fuck you and niggas wanna be you
    And police wanna stop you, frisk you wonder what he do
    If a hater snatch yo chain, I bet it still won't free you
    Cause I'll be right back grinding 'til I cop another
    I sit and think about all this shit I coulda copped my mother
    My partner said that's just the game my nigga
    Swear I heard my jeweler say, "Here go your chain my nigga"

    This is chaining day
    I need you to love me, love me
    Chaining day, my chaining day
    I need you to love me, love me
    My chaining day
    My last piece, I swear, my guilt heavy as this piece I wear
    They even iced out Jesus' hair
    My last piece, I swear, they even iced out Jesus' hair

    Ice on this white Jesus seem a little unholy
    The real strange thing about this iced out Rolly
    It's the same shit a broke black nigga get gassed at
    The same shit a rich white mo'fucka laugh at
    Well laugh on white man, I ain't paid as you
    But I bet your rims ain't the same age as you
    And I ain't got no investment portfolio
    But my black and white diamonds shinin' like a Oreo
    I know back home where niggas sit today
    He rock a chain and he always got some shit to say
    Even back when I was broke I knew his shit was fake
    He'd prolly sneeze too hard and his shit could break
    But hey, you know the sayin', "Fake it 'til you make it"
    Me, I did the opposite, made it then I faked it
    And actin' like I gave a fuck, money I was savin' up
    To buy a crib that's gated to that hundred racks
    I gave it up, for what

    I need you to love me, love me
    Chaining day, my chaining day
    I need you to love me, love me
    My chaining day
    My last piece, I swear, my guilt heavy as this piece I wear
    They even iced out Jesus' hair
    My last piece, I swear

    Lord
    This is the last time
    Told my accountant, It's the last time
    I swear this is the last time
    I know that I said that last time
    But this the last time
    Mama I swear this is the last time
    So don't take my Chains from me
    This is the last time
    'Cause I chose this slavery
    This is the last time
    Don't take my chains from me
    This is the last time
    'Cause I love this slavery
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me
    I need you to love me, love me, love me

    I said this is my last time Writer/s: CHARLES STILL, DUANE STUBBS TERRY, JERMAINE LAMARR COLE, JOHN F WILSON
