  • One for us

    All my niggas in the whole wide world
    All my niggas in the whole wide world
    Made this song to make it all y'all's turn
    For us, this shit is for us

    All my niggas let the whole world know
    Play this song and sing it on your terms
    For us, this shit is for us
    Don't try to come for us

    All my niggas got the whole wide world
    Tell them niggas that it's all our turn
    This us, some shit is a must
    Some shit is for us

    When you know you gotta pay the cost
    Play the game just to play the boss
    So you thinking what you gained, you lost
    But you know your shit is taking off, oh
    When you driving in your tinted car
    And you're criminal, just who you are
    But you know you're gonna make it far, oh

    When you feeling all alone
    And you can't even be you up in your home
    When you even feeling it from your own
    When you got it figured out
    When a nigga tryna board the plane
    And they ask you, "What's your name again?"
    Cause they thinking, "Yeah, you're all the same"
    Oh, it's for us

    All my niggas in the whole wide world
    Made this song to make it all y'all's turn
    For us, this shit is for us
    Some shit is a must
    This shit is for us

    When it's going on a thousand years
    And you pulling up to your crib
    And they ask you where you live again
    But you running out of damns to give, oh
    I hope my son will bang this song so loud
    That he almost makes his walls fall down
    Cause his momma wants to make him proud
    Oh, to be us

    And all my niggas in the whole wide world
    Made this song to make it all y'alls turn
    For us
    This shit is for us
    Sometimes we don't trust
    This shit is for us

    And we bomb on sight, on sight we must charge
    Host of my emotion, it's your call
    Liquor in my system, we must crawl
    Addiction, disobey the law
    Don't clip my wings before I learn to fly
    I didn't come back down to Earth to die

    All my niggas in the whole wide world
    Made this song to make it all y'all's turn
    For us, this shit is from us
    Get so much from us
    Then forget us

    Don't feel bad if you can't sing along
    Just be glad you got the whole wide world
    This us
    This shit is from us
    Some shit you can't touch

    Ooh, oh baby
    For us baby
    Yeah
    It's all for us baby
    Nobody else, baby
    All for us baby Writer/s: Dave Longstreth, Rostam Batmanglij, Solange Knowles, Terius Nash, Troy Johnson
