    They try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everything cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly
    See, I had to realize slowly
    That nobody actually knows me
    Yeah, man, I've got fifteen different iPhones
    But I am so not phony
    They try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everything cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly
    See, I had to realize slowly
    That nobody actually knows me
    Yeah, man, I've got fifteen different iPhones
    But I am so not phony

    See them online, they're vexing
    They see the shirt I'm flexing
    They see my spliff get larger
    They see the girl I'm sexing
    I'm a Nigerian eagle
    In London smoking illegal
    Nah, we are so not equal
    Them man are cloning people
    Anything I do, they bite
    How do you sleep at night?
    Is it codeine and Sprite?
    I switch up the steeze on guys
    I stand up in the rain, I'm dancing
    Then I look at the game, start laughing
    It's not a joke, though, got the fakes in a chokehold
    I'd love to see them gasping

    'Cause they try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everything cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly
    See, I had to realize slowly
    That nobody actually knows me
    Yeah, man, I've got fifteen different iPhones
    But I am so not phony

    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    It's that uncontrollable demon
    They didn't wanna see, grease

    I declined some amazing dinners
    And I'm still blazing Rizlas
    I wanted to make some changes
    I was not taking pictures
    Now look at the labels dying
    Nobody else is signing
    We know the truth they're hiding
    See, the plaques on my wall just shining
    And I've already seen my death
    We were the last ones left
    I saw the hood get gassed
    I had to hold my breath
    I was a young black yout
    The teacher took my zoots
    They tried to show man Roots
    They tried to send man loops
    Now you have to respect it
    I've been around the world, I'm tried and tested
    Getting back money that I invested
    Don't know about me? Get connected
    No, I don't do that conscious rap, but
    Man still know about Wretch and Kendrick
    Top five niggas, don't get offended
    Murdered the beat, no, it ain't attempted
    I meant it
    And I'm still top three selected
    They never showed me the guest list
    Nah, we just walked in the exit
    Just came back from the Ivors
    And look at what we collected
    The MBE got rejected
    I'm not tryna be accepted

    'Cause they try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everything cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly
    See, I had to realize slowly
    That nobody actually knows me
    Yeah, man, I've got fifteen different iPhones
    But I am so not phony
    They try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everything cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly
    See, I had to realize slowly
    That nobody actually knows me
    Yeah, man, I've got fifteen different iPhones
    But I am so not phony

    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    Everyday I'm shitting and I'm pissing
    On this hypocrisy
    It's that uncontrollable demon
    They didn't wanna see, grease Writer/s: JOSEPH OLAITAN ADENUGA
