  • Nigga why you actin' like a ho?
    Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go
    Tell me girl why you be stressin me for time
    When you tell me you love me, can't you see im tryna climb
    Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch
    If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?
    Come here baby why you always insecure?
    Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

    Ain't a way around it no more, I am the greatest
    A lotta niggas sat on the thrown, I am the latest
    I am the bravest, go toe to toe with the giants
    I ain't afraid of you niggas, I'll end up fading you niggas
    'Fore it's all said and done, this nigga need medicine
    My uzi it weighed a ton, I need me a better gun
    In fact I just might need two, cuz niggas say they the one
    And I got something to prove
    Forgive me lord here they come, BLAOW

    Nigga why you actin' like a ho?
    Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go
    Tell me girl why you be stressin me for time
    When you tell me you love me, can't you see im tryna climb
    Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch
    If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?
    Come here baby why you always insecure?
    Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

    My inhibitions, fighting my intuition
    Premature premonition
    Showin me the demolition of these phony niggas
    So ahead of my time
    Even when I rhyme about the future I be reminiscing
    You want the truth well come and listen
    Im like that time you bagged a dime
    And checked ya phone and saw it was a number missing
    As fate passes you by half of you try
    The other half of you fry, too high to actually fly
    One day yall have to decide, who you gon be
    A scary nigga or a nigga thats gon' rule like me
    Keep it true like me, Cole you might be
    Like the new Ice Cube, meets the new Ice-T
    Meets 2 Live Crew, meets the new Spike Lee
    Meets Bruce like Wayne, meets Bruce like Lee
    Meets '02 Lil Wayne, in a new white tee
    Meets KD, ain't no nigga that can shoot like me! BLAOW

    Nigga why you actin' like a ho?
    Know that I'ma ride for ya, either way it go
    Tell me girl why you be stressin' me for time
    When you tell me you love me, can't you see I'm tryna climb
    Damn my nigga why you actin' like a bitch
    If you scared to take a chance, how the fuck we gon' get rich?
    Come here baby why you always insecure?
    Hold on tight to a nigga and be sure

    (Who's the king?)
    Came from the bottom nigga, with stains on my shirt
    What you expected from me, I came from the dirt
    (Who's the king?)
    Money my motivator, the songs that I sing
    Picture a peasant passin' from pawn to a King
    You tell me ya still love me, if so then let me go
    Will I return or will I burn, never know
    Look in my eyes and see the future
    But don't sugar coat it

    History repeats itself and thats just how it goes
    Same way that these rappers always bite each others flows
    Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with Rock n Roll
    Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore
    While silly niggas argue over who gone snatch the crown
    Look around my nigga white people have snatched the sound
    This year I'll prolly go to the awards dappered down
    Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile
    I'm just playin', but all good jokes contain true shit
    Same rope you climb up on, they'll hang you with
    But not Jermaine, my aim too sick
    I bang nigga, I came to bring the pain my brain too quick
    You see how I maneuver this game, I ain't stupid
    I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid
    And break the chains and change minds, one verse at a time
    And claim that you sick, and fuck it if the truth is
    Who's the king?

    We all kings
    (We all kings nigga)
    Kings of ourselves first and foremost
    (True)
    While the people debate who's the king of this rap game
    Here comes lil' ol' Jermaine
    With every ounce of strength in his veins
    To snatch the crown from whoever y'all think has it
    But rather than place it on his head as soon as he grabs it
    Poof, boom, paow, it's like magic
    With a flash and a BANG the crown disintegrates
    And falls from the Earth from which it came
    It's done
    Ain't gonna be no more kings
    Be wary of any man that claims
    Because deep down he claims onto the need for power
    But reality he's a coward
    Ultimately he's scared to die
    And sometimes so am I
    But when I'm in tune with the most high
    I realize
    The fear lies in my lack of awareness of the other side
    Today I know that we are the same
    Are the same, you and I
    Different kind of skin, different set of eyes
    Two different minds, but only one God
    (It's only one God nigga)
    It's for all the kings
    Cause deep down I know every pore just wanna be loved Writer/s: Brion Unger, Jermaine Cole, Mark Farner
