  • And I got all the drugs in the world that you need
    We get high to pass time but bitch I ain't no fiend
    I got money on my mind, I be stacking my green
    Shawty said she like my style, I be dripping with ease
    Please don't send me naked pictures, I don't like to be teased
    Say she got that Super Soaker, well girl just let me see
    I ain't worried 'bout shit, these niggas ain't scaring me
    I was destined for this life, this is my destiny
    Friends wanna be friends when you doing the most
    How you tell me you my bro then you went out and told
    Niggas say they down to ride but be folding like clothes
    Purple hearts all on my garment, I ain't trusting a soul

    I roll up the Mary Jane, no they can't feel my pain
    I'm still trapping everyday, I think I'm stuck in my ways
    If you looking for a handout get the fuck out my face
    I don't care about no friends because they all were just fake
    In my inbox like I owe you, I got this by myself
    I was broken down bad when you said you would help
    Now I'm up, they love to hate me, that's just bad for your health
    And she say she a college girl but left her books on the shelf
    She gon' fuck me like a porn star, a rock star
    Trying to skrt off in that fast car, like NASCAR
    Girl you know I got a cold heart
    If I would give it to you, would you tear that shit apart
    Red roses on my grave, bury me with art
    And with some Backwoods and a lighter just so I could spark
    Midnight rider, never put the car in park
    I'm shining bright just like a light 'cause I came from the dark
    I ain't never had nobody, put that on my mommy
    I might have to catch a body if you try to stop me
    She ride like a Kawasaki and she like it sloppy
    Oh you got a hotty body, come ride on my Johnny
    I'm go show you the wave, just give me some space
    Why you all up in my face like you need a taste
    Good designer on my waist, shooters keep the K
    I tell them boys to play it safe, don't lay in your grave
    I ain't never taking time off, I'm steady grinding
    I'm never lying, was never crying
    Take flights I'm flying, no you can't see me
    Say you need me but you deceive me

    And I got all the drugs in the world that you need
    We get high to pass time but bitch I ain't no fiend
    I got money on my mind, I be stacking my green
    Shawty said she like my style, I be dripping with ease
    Please don't send me naked pictures, I don't like to be teased
    Say she got that Super Soaker, well girl just let me see
    I ain't worried 'bout shit, these niggas ain't scaring me
    I was destined for this life, this is my destiny
    Friends wanna be friends when you doing the most
    How you tell me you my bro then you went out and told
    Niggas say they down to ride but be folding like clothes
    Purple hearts all on my garment, I ain't trusting a soul

    Said I ain't never forgotten, not a soul worth remembering
    'Cause all these motherfuckers turn to foe when they envy
    So I don't talk, I work hard
    'Cause you could be someone today and just be nobody tomorrow
    She said I'll never be shit but a goddamn rock star
    That blunt ash on the floor
    Well she ain't that far off
    Said she ain't that far off
    Roll, smoke
    That's all we know
    Toke
    Took a drag out that Wood now she goin' for my wood
    So we going to my hood
    Yea she gonna get it good
    Yea she know who we are
    She want this rock star life and she said I'm going far
    And she off a bar
    And she can't feel her face no more
    Yeah she off a bar and she can't feel her face no more
    She said she can't feel her face no more Writer/s: Amin Elamin, Kimetrius Foose, Landon Cube
