  • Work hard, just to get half back
    (Used to) Work hard, just to get half back

    (Used to) Work hard, just to get half back

    Ayo, just last week I told 'em to pick a side
    I bust shots, don't duck if it don't apply
    Bae out in Paris, he told me to pick a ride
    Sike, made you look, I still didn't pick a guy
    I'm the trophy of the game, everybody tryna win me
    Me, Olivier, Jourdan Dunn, my baby, Winnie
    Partying in Paris, these bitches is embarassed
    'Cause they know I'm the queen, I still didn't pick an heiress
    Mirror, mirror, who's the fairest?
    (You the motherfucking fairest, Nicki)
    What I drop on this watch?

    I'm who they wishin' to be

    'Bout to cop Neverland, Michael up in the tree
    You got bars and still broke? You might as well took the plea, uh
    Be in the bando or would you rather move weight, Don Pablo?
    Uh
