  • Yea I see you big bro
    I'm a kill these niggas man yea ha ha

    Straight off the block wit' it
    Eagle Street to be specific
    I'm peepin' at your people different
    I pay my dues, you keep the difference
    I can see the end in the beginning
    So I'm not racing I'm just sprintin'
    Cause I don't wanna' finish
    They diminish, I replenish
    Scientific
    I'm out this world hoe
    I wear bright red, like a girl toe
    No homo, Fingernails dirty
    I've been counting dirty money since 12:30
    A-M, wave them if they sure take them right back and spray him, Amen
    Yea, I just do my Wayne and every time I do it I do my thing, yea
    Believe that, like a true story
    Rims big make the car look like its two stories,
    If I hop out, that be suicide
    No back seats, call that paralyze
    I don't have a spine, I don't fantasize
    I mastermind, then go after mine
    You see I handle mine, I dismantle mine
    I told her tool box "Bitch it's Hammer-time"
    So excuse me as I nail em' to something
    Just repeal em', I'm a kill em'
    Someone tell em', I'm a kill em'
    I'm a feel his mother's mama,
    Can't tell em' when doctors cant heal em', I'm a kill em'
    And yeah, we sell em', I know you smell em'
    So if you want it, you could just yell it
    Be in the morning at your telly
    Whole keys go for twenty, half a key go for eleven,
    After me there will be nothing
    I am Legend and I Will Smith
    Now that's how you let the beat build, bitch

    That's how you let the beat build, bitch
    Now that's how you let the beat build, bitch
    Let the beat build, bitch

    Ok, I'd like to thank Kanye
    And my nigga Dezzle for giving me this diesel like a F-350,
    Tank never empty
    Damn everybody in the bank act friendly
    Used to think my shit didn't stink boy was I wrong
    Approving million dollar deals from my iPhone
    I'm a take it one two way back
    Like a silk wife beater
    And a wave cap or the wave pool at blue bayou
    And I waved fool as I blew by you
    Hello, hi you,
    I can buy you but I wouldn't try you,
    Feed you to Pyru
    I know what I'm doin',
    I sure improve it, show improvement,
    And I know just to go to it,
    Don't amount to your influent, whatever
    How you wanna do it? We can do it like we late,
    Aye wait Dezzle let me jus' get the 8 0 8
    As I hit the kill switch,

    And I will eat you alive
    Think I'm lying?
    Damn, I'm a get in the niggas chest like bunch a phlegm,
    Like a fuckin' ram,
    I'm a hunt for the lamb
    I'm a dump em' man, in a dumpster can
    You ain't a soldier, ask Uncle Sam
    Hair nappy like Kam
    Nigga fuck your plan, fuck your man,
    You ain't a pimp
    Unless you get the same bitch
    To fuck your man and fuck your clan
    And all my bitches know that's my plan
    Oh, goddamn, there's my sample playin' likes that's my band
    Gotta get it cleared
    Suck my dick with red lipstick and don't let it smear
    And I got a lot of tattoos
    And I meant every tear and I'm still on that street shit,
    Back to the beat bitch!

    That's how you let the beat build, bitch
    Now that's how you let the beat build, bitch
