  • The lotta fight I've been in
    Ooh, ooh, mm (Ayy, Pluto, go brazy)

    Niggas ain't gettin' no money, tell them quit that cappin' (mmm)
    Niggas ain't gettin' no money, tell them quit that cappin'
    Yeah, in this bitch relaxin', you ain't even did your taxes (oh yeah, yeah)
    We went triple platinum, I don't wanna hear no naggin'
    Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, made it happen
    Uh, uh, youngin' out that bottom, but he made it happen (yeah)
    I don't wanna make new friends, point me to my ends
    Who he think he is in that brand new Benz?
    They should've knew I was comin'
    Since a lil' youngin', I knew I would get me some money (skrrt)
    Know I'd turn nothing to something, now look at your cousin (grrah)
    The youngin', six million and runnin'
    And I promise to keep it one hundred, keep it one hundred
    You see me grindin' and hustlin'
    So you got to respect me, fuck you, give me my check, please (yeah, yeah)

    Young and chasin' dreams, reachin' for the stars (what else?)
    Be all you can be, eat or you gon' starve (what else?)
    A youngin' out that bottom, but he beat the odds (yeah, yeah)
    I ain't gon' lie, I had it hard (yeah, yeah)

    But now I'm richer than I've ever been (what else?)
    I'm richer than I've ever been (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I'm richer than I've ever been
    I'm richer than I've ever been (ever been) (ahh)
    He richer than he ever been (ah)

    I'm richer than ever, whippin' a Tesla, cars, hoes, etcetera
    Hit him with pressure, my niggas won't let up
    Tell them niggas to catch up, oh
    Wake up, got a million in diamonds that sit on the dresser, oh
    Run up that check, now I flexin' my muscles, I feel like a wrestler
    'Cause we come from nothin' to Rollies and plaques
    Fake love, it was holdin' him back
    Flashbacks while you're pourin' the yak
    Since a young nigga he just wanted a sack
    He used to daydream 'bout thumbin' through racks
    Heat tuck, it get cold in the 'Raq
    Tears fall while he loadin' the strap
    Seen it all, he just wanna relax, uh-uh
    I'm richer than I ever been
    Put my heart before the bag, worst shit I ever did
    Gave you a second chance and you left again (uh)
    'Member days I used to wonder, "Would we ever win?"

    Young and chasin' dreams, reachin' for the stars (what else?)
    Be all you can be, eat or you gon' starve (what else?)
    A youngin' out that bottom, but he beat the odds (yeah, yeah)
    I ain't gon' lie, I had it hard (yeah, yeah)

    But now I'm richer than I've ever been (what else?)
    I'm richer than I've ever been (yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I'm richer than I've ever been
    I'm richer than I've ever been (ever been)
    He richer than he ever been (ever been, yeah)
    Ever been

    Uh, uh, uh mmh
    Uh, uh, uh mmh, mmh (mmh, yeah)
