Rich

Album: Bigger Than Me (2014)
  • Am I wrong for wanting better?
    Should I just settle forever?
    Ooh, I swear it feels like
    This is as good as it gets
    Am I wrong for wanting cheddar?
    Although they'll tell you that I'll never
    Get out of here, I swear, I
    Driven by a better life

    I wanna be rich
    Don't see nothing wrong with wanting more
    I wanna be rich
    So tired of sleeping on the floor
    I wanna be rich
    There's so much that I want
    I want a house on a hill and a boat by the lake
    And what's the fun, I wanna get paid
    I wanna be rich

    I'm sick and tired of this bullshit
    Got a full time job but a nigga still can't afford shit
    Okay, I'm in the strip club man throwing all this dough (this dough)
    When I leave here I ain't gonna have no more (god damn)
    I'm tired of fronting for these fake niggas
    Need a diamond chain to be great nigga
    I got one but I ain't great nigga
    What it takes (oh yeah) for the rap game to notice me (oh yeah)
    I topped the charts for nine weeks but they still ain't notice me
    Guess I gotta rob me a nigga, guess I gotta kill me a nigga
    Guess I gotta get up on the block, sell rocks to a nigga
    Guess I gotta slide me a nigga, but that ain't me
    I'm H-town 'til I D.I.E
    Young Kirko you know it's me
    And I'm singing like (hold up)
    I came down
    I was a young nigga when I rolled up
    I came too fast for my money up
    All I did was smoke and drink, yeah
    Now I'm back here, this ain't last year
    And I'mma do it like it's my last year
    Man I can't lie

    I wanna be rich
    Don't see nothing wrong with wanting more
    I wanna be rich
    So tired of sleeping on the floor
    I wanna be rich
    There's so much that I want
    I want a house on a hill and a boat by the lake
    And what's the fun, I wanna get paid
    I wanna be rich

    Man, I'm tired of feeling pain, tired of feeling rain
    Tired of being ashamed, tired of second place
    Tired of hiding my face, man, I'm tired of getting no love
    Tired of hitting the club when I know I got work to do
    How come I ain't heard from you? (god damn)
    Okay, I see how you doing when a nigga got money
    Nigga rocking that fly shit
    Poppin' bottles in the club, everybody in the club
    Straight singin' all my shit
    Pushing that Range, diamonds and chains
    Everybody came when I had shit
    But when the money get low, everybody go
    Talking that fly shit
    But I can't knock how the game is
    Ain't the first nigga that's famous
    I can't change shit, but I'mma be okay
    'Cause man I've been out here, I've been grinding
    I'm tired of these niggas, man, I've been too silent
    My momma she told me "you claiming you got it" and I'm like okay
    I've been doing it for my city, I'mma be on top, okay
    I'mma shine on these ho ass niggas like all day
    I'mma fuck any girl I want, drive every car you don't
    Rock anything I want, man,

    I wanna be rich
    Don't see nothing wrong with wanting more
    I wanna be rich
    So tired of sleeping on the floor
    I wanna be rich
    There's so much that I want
    I want a house on a hill and a boat by the lake
    And what's the fun, I wanna get paid
    I wanna be rich Writer/s: AUGUST ANTHONY ALSINA, TIMOTHY JAMAHLI THOMAS, JEVON LENDRICK HILL, THERON MAKIEL THOMAS, REGINALD CALLOWAY, VINCENT CALLOWAY, MELVIN ARTHUR GENTRY, STANLEY GREENBERG, BELINDA G. LIPSCOMB, KIRK JEREL RANDLE, DAVID WILLIAMS III
