  • Sometimes when I sit back and really let it register
    I did everything I said I would, and said it first
    I mean the world's in denial, but they all know what I'm headed for (ha)

    We 'bout to feed these youngin's to the metaverse
    Meanwhile I'm over here just tryna pen a verse
    'Cause I'm done bein' extra with the extroverts
    The label used to wonder how I'm supposed to stand next to Vert
    Prolly never thought that I would get these legs to work
    I work hard, but hard shit don't need no extra work
    That's why I show up in a sweatshirt and let it burn
    The world's mine, I just say, "Fuck it, let it turn"
    The girl's mine, I just say, "Fuck it, have a turn"
    The G.O.A.Ts call me to the side like, "Can we have a word?"
    I could've fronted but I did this shit how I preferred (I preferred)
    I know I should be humble, but it's somethin' I just haven't learned
    Soon enough I'll have to make these bad habits burn
    Soon enough we 'bout to come and get the shit we earn
    You not a fan now
    But I remember when you used to be fanned out
    I guess that when the whole world loves you
    People only got one way to stand out
    All that time in the kitchen finally panned out
    I put some flavor in a pot and took the bland out
    I know my grandpa would have a heart attack if I pulled a hunnid grand out
    So I'm not gonna pull a hunnid grand out
    I'm hip hop, do you fully understand?
    Fully automatic with the jams and they don't jam
    At the shows I'm 'bout to start handin' out programs
    'Cause y'all need to get with the program
    I'm a grown ass man, call me pops
    Fuck around and take your phone ass man
    Everybody know Jack, but they don't know Jack, man
    They just know I got the flows and the hoes and the packed out shows
    Ain't too many cons when you playin' with the pros
    'Cept for how your life get exposed
    But I make that sacrifice for the life that I chose
    I know in Toronto they got salt for the roads
    But school's closed in Kentucky, so I like when it snowed
    The kids carry chopsticks not for rice in the bowl
    School counselors all know how they life is at home
    Cold like the Minnesota Vikings at home
    Before I met Drizzy I knew he and I would get along
    But it's hard to crack jokes when you really want advice
    I mean what's it like to touch gold every time you touch a mic
    Touchin' heights, no one gets a touch in life?
    Fuckin' right, young bachelor, what's a wife?
    Once in a lifetime, 'til I say I want it twice
    One of a kind, know your everythin' is one of mine
    Wanted posters with my face, they know who I'm wanted by


    Cold hearts and heated floors
    No parental guidance I just see divorce
    Therapy sessions, I'm in the waiting room, readin' Forbes
    Abandonment issues I'm gettin' treated for
    How much water can I fit under the bridge before it overflows?
    My son's gotta learn that forgiveness is a lonely road
    The cribs on his will like motor homes
    Niggas love to try and test us like they know what we on
    Chubb's got the magazine covered like Rolling Stone
    'Cause we already know how they rock, they throwin' stones
    Whenever you gettin' bigger, there's growin' pains
    I got enough pull to make the city start throwin' games
    I'm out here makin' a mockery
    I got my realtor out here playin' Monopoly
    How can I address you when you don't own property?
    They only finesse you when you don't move properly
    Destined for the win, but you don't get a prize out of me
    I'm destined for the top, but you can't get a rise out of me
    Seven-fifty for the round, canaries, and they glitterin'
    Man, you niggas drop trash, you littering
    I'm overdelivering to the point, it's belittling
    I mean, the PTSD is triggerin', the profit is sickenin'
    The stones is shimmerin', came from the north
    But I got hot as fuck, so ain't no shiverin', yeah
    Lucky me, people that don't fuck with me
    Are linkin' up with people that don't fuck with me to fuck with me
    This shit is gettin' ugly
    And every situation is transactional
    And every thing they sayin' is irrational
    And every way they movin' is promotional
    Everybody's actin' irreplaceable, it's like they ain't disposable
    My urges for revenge are uncontrollable
    I know we're gettin' older though
    But I gotta get a nigga back for that, It's non-negotiable
    It's not even debatable
    I'm gettin' so rich, my music's not even relatable
    I blow a head up, it's an inflatable
    Baby blue G class, I feel like a kid again
    Prayin' on my downfall don't make you religious, man
    All I hear is plug talk comin' from middlemen
    All I hear is tall tales comin' from little men
    When I say "Bitch", I'm very rarely referring to women
    Most of the bitches I know are niggas, they not even women
    I know that sounds like I'm being funny, I'm not even kidding
    Same ones that say they run the game when they not even in it
    To be honest, y'all financial situations my biggest motivation
    And how you should take that statement is based on what you makin'
    Whips and chains like a dominatrix
    If I see ya, I'll spit in ya faces
    Daytonas with the green faces
    Kentucky Derby races, my presence in the spot is so abrasive
    Boxed at the Churchill Downs, that's motivation
    And shorty like, "You know that boy Jack is goin' places"

    I know
