  • [Roddy Ricch:]
    My diamonds shine like the stars
    And that's why a young nigga came through flexin'
    Double Gs on me and my patek luminescent, yeah
    Buss down the Cartiers and got a new necklace
    Pull up in the drop, got us in a new message
    I wanna get rich and put a milli on my wrist
    Lately I been driving, prolly riding with the stick
    If you came from the bottom then you know how it is
    I came from the struggle so I know how it is

    I ain't gotta do no cap
    Riding in the back of the Bach
    Can't do no relaxing, all I do is trap
    'Cause I want a new AP, yeah
    Diamonds looking like HD, yeah
    Young nigga had to get it on my own and it made me, yeah
    Hoppin' out the Jet they know that all my diamonds wet, yeah
    I want a milli, I can't ever settle for less, no
    Got a lot of cash on me so I gotta ride with the TEC, yeah
    Got it out the mud and I'm ballin' like the Nets, yeah
    I'm the youngest, richest nigga in the set, yeah
    Call me 21 Savage, I just shitted on my ex, yeah
    I was tryna get rich off the pyrex
    Came straight up out the yacht, yeah

    My diamonds shine like the stars
    And that's why a young nigga came through flexin'
    Double Gs on me and my patek luminescent, yeah
    Buss down the Cartiers and got a new necklace
    Pull up in the drop, got us in a new message
    I wanna get rich and put a milli on my wrist
    Lately I been driving, prolly riding with the stick
    If you came from the bottom then you know how it is
    I came from the struggle so I know how it is

    [Chip:]
    Yeah
    Take the money, clean the muddy, just depends on my mood (ayy)
    Yeah I work and pay my tax, got muddy cash on me too (Chippy)
    Plug talk out in Cali, now I'm shipping that food (ayy)
    Nigga, I don't mean no P notes, 50 pounds in the room (Ganja)
    Young and getting it, ain't selling mine or trusting a soul, yeah
    Gangster films had taught me keep your eyes on your bros, yeah
    Niggas talkin' crazy, dawg, I thought we was woes, yeah
    Enemies ain't always far, nah they can be close, yeah
    Boy, rapping ain't dead but your rhymes is
    Trapping ain't dead but your line is
    Never get the cake or the icing
    Older seen a young nigga shining
    Can't build a line, wanna line him
    So we gon' pull up in diamonds

    [Roddy Ricch:]
    My diamonds shine like the stars
    And that's why a young nigga came through flexin'
    Double Gs on me and my patek luminescent, yeah
    Buss down the Cartiers and got a new necklace

    [Yxng Bane:]
    Diamonds shining, mummy thinks that I'm a star
    Broski, don't you turn on me, we come this far
    Put a bustdown on my wrist, I pull her hair, I'm cumming fast
    Put a bustdown on my kicks, cash in my jeans, grind extra hard
    Big cash when I spill, no cap
    Big cheese, can't hang with rats
    It's the life that she wan' snap
    Big metal, we don't do no scrap
    I still pray all my days that I see the next day
    Where I'm from they die young, can't get rid of my name
    Get rich, like Roddy, big drip, no Tommy
    Jeans, Mike Amiri, got checks like Louis
    Fell in love with a girl before she told me her name
    I can't cry, I buy diamonds just to freeze all my pain

    [Roddy Ricch (Yxng Bane):]
    And that's why a young nigga came through flexin' (flexin')
    Double Gs on me and my patek luminescent, yeah (luminescent, yeah)
    Buss down the Cartiers and got a new necklace (new necklace, yeah)
    Pull up in the drop, got us in a new message (skrrt, skrrt)
    I wanna get rich and put a milli on my wrist (wrist, wrist, wrist)
    Lately I been driving, prolly riding with the stick (yeah)
    If you came from the bottom then you know how it is
    I came from the struggle so I know how it is

    [Yxng Bane:]
    Know how it is
    I came from the trenches so I know how it is, yeah
    Know how it is
    I came from the trenches so I know how it is
