  • And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)

    Look, the only reason I survive 'cause a nigga is special, first
    You get successful, then it get stressful, thirst
    Niggas gon' test you, see what your texture's worth
    Diamonds and pipes, one of 'em pressure bursts
    Street nigga, still I get checks in spurts
    I'm for peace, but before I get pressed, I murk
    Better days prayed for but expectin' worse
    At this level, bullshit, I'm just less concerned
    Cruisin' in the 6, lookin' at the proceeds of rap music on my wrist
    Drop another mixtape, my shit boomin' out this bitch
    Young Malcolm, I'm the leader of the movement out this bitch, look
    And this is what it feels like (feels like)
    Reach a level, make you question, "Is it real life?"
    All the weed good, all the pussy real tight
    And the only rule, keep your dollar bills right

    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (Feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)

    Scorpion bricks, way before Aubrey's double disc
    .40 on my lap, clap, sound like 40 did the mix
    Filtered bass, sift coke like a Michelin star chef
    Chef kiss to my wrist, I go dummy with my left
    IRS on my dick tryna audit all my checks, too late
    You know they hate when you become more than they expect
    You let them crackers storm your Capitol, put they feet up on your desk
    And yet you talkin' tough to me, I lost all my little respect
    I'm sellin' weed in the open, bringin' folks home from the feds
    I know that payback gon' be mean, I'm savin' all my little bread
    Pray for me, y'all, one day I'ma have to pay for these thoughts
    Real niggas is extinct, it ain't safe for me my dawg
    They killin' niggas in their own hood, that make sense to you at all?
    You burnt your bridge to the other side, you know you can't swim across
    Y'all know niggas can't swim, they fried Mike after he died
    Y'all know niggas can't win, you'll never land, all jokes aside
    I arrived on the day Fred Hampton got mur-, hol' up
    Assassinated, just to clarify it further
    What y'all gave birth is the chairman mixed with Jeff Fort
    Big stepper on the jet with my legs crossed (uh, uh)
    Black stones on my neck, y'all can't kill Christ (uh)
    Black Messiah is what I feel like (woo)
    This shit ain't gon' stop 'cause y'all spilled blood
    We gon' turn up even more since y'all killed cuz

    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (Feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (Feels like, feels like)

    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (As it fuckin' should)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (Feels so fuckin' good)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)
    (Feels so fuckin' good)
    And this is what it feels like (feels like, feels like)

    And this is what it feels like Writer/s: Ermias Asghedom, John Groover Jr., LaMar Edwards, Larrance Dopson, Michael Cox Jr., Quintin Gulledge, Shawn Corey Carter
