  • Ey ey, ey
    Good to see you, c'mon let's go
    Yeah, let's go
    Alright, alright, okay, ah, alright, okay
    Alright, okay

    Return of the Mack', get up, what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t
    Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
    Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit
    We get up, fresh out, pimp strut walking
    Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
    Somewhere between like, Rocky and Cosby, Sweater Gang
    Nope, nope, y’all can’t copy that
    Bad, moonwalkin', this here, is our party
    My posse's been on Broadway, and we did it our way, Grown music
    I shed my skin and put my bones into everything, I record to it
    And yet I’m on, Let that stage light go and shine on down
    Got the Bob Barker suit game and Plinko in my style
    Money
    Stay on my craft and stick around for those pounds
    But I do that to pass the torch and put on for my town
    Trust me, on my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustling
    Chasing dreams since I was 14
    With the 4 track, bussin'
    Halfway cross that city with the backpack, fat cat, crush shit
    Labels out here, nah they can’t tell me nothing
    We give it to the people, spread it across the country
    Labels out here, nah they can’t tell me nothing
    We give it to the people, spread it across the country

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    Now, can I kick it? Thank you
    Yeah I’m so damn grateful
    I grew up really wanting gold fronts, but that’s what you get when Wu-Tang raised you
    Y’all can’t stop me, I go hard like I've got an 808 in my heart beat
    And I'm meeting at the beat like you gave a little speed to a great white shark on shark
    Week raw. Tell me go up. Gone! Deuces, goodbye, I've got a world to see
    And my girl, she wanna see Rome
    Caesar make you a believer, nah
    I never ever did it for a throne
    That validation comes, so I'm giving it back to the people now
    Sing that song and it goes like

    Raise those hands, this is our party
    We came here to live life like nobody was watching
    I got my city right behind me
    If I fall they got me learn from that failure, gain humility
    And then we keep marching, I said

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    So we put our hands up
    So we put our hands up

    (Let's go) Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
    Hey
    And all my people say
    Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na (thats right, feels good)
    Hey
    And all my people say
    Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
    oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
    And all my people say
    Na, na, nana, na, na, nana, na
    Mack-le-eh-eh-eh-eh-more

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us

    Can we go back, this is the moment
    Tonight is the night, we’ll fight till it’s over
    So we put our hands up like the ceiling can’t hold us
    Like the ceiling can’t hold us
