  • Oh
    Oh-oh, why?

    (Oh)
    It's a bigger operation (oh, oh)
    What's with all the speculation? (Oh, oh)
    Had to close the store for renovations (oh, oh)
    My cuz, he said "Stormz', man, they're runnin' out of patience, you know" (oh, oh)
    Time to make a statement (oh, oh)
    Time to free my mind of limitations (oh, oh)
    Finessed the majors, that's my form of reparations (oh, oh)
    They said you can't slide, you're a treasure to the nation (oh, oh)
    But what they gonna do, what they gonna say? (Oh, oh)
    Stormz' got that sauce, this that bolognese (oh, oh)
    Talkin' 'bout the bread, like it correlates (oh, oh)
    I see you lookin' bothered with your bothered face (oh, oh)
    Even though we're comin' from a common place (oh, oh)
    All I see is stars, like we in a Wraith (oh, oh)
    So give him room to grow and just give him space (oh, oh)
    And he could be a young, black Jimmy Nates

    Oh, this is clean, this is clean (clean)
    This is what I mean, I said, this is what I mean, yo

    All my niggas got it, we unanimous
    Cut from different cloth and different calibers
    My skeleton is matchin' with my managers
    She love me, 'cause I'm handsome and I'm talented (boy, boy)
    Hangin' off the banisters
    Tell me, who's gon' pay for all the damages?
    Ah, I'm just reckless, like the mandem is
    Talkin' recky, we gon' ask you where your manners is
    I said it from a kid, you should've listened
    I manifest the shit and then it happened
    Said that I'ma do it, then it happens
    P2J up on the rhythm and it's slappin'
    I shout my brother Giggs, that's more than rappin'
    Shout my sister Mel, we doin' fashion (sheesh)
    Ah, all this work that I've been mashin'
    Put your boy in the position where I profit off my passion, alright
    They don't know about the times I've bled
    Give a fuck 'bout what the timeline said, I do your day streams
    In a second, yeah, I shine like Ed
    I thank God for the live I've led, then get the Wraith clean
    I heard them sayin' grime ain't dead
    I'm Harry Styles, the way I fine-line tread, you're goin' mainstream
    Mind your business, 'fore you mind my bread
    If ten million weren't enough, I make a lifetime pledge, alright (boy)

    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean

    Uh, I can't address your niggas on the 'net, they disrespect
    They don't wanna give me my respect, it's disrespect
    A nigga doin' numbers, what the fuck did you expect?
    They charge a nigga fifty every time I miss the jet, ah
    I guess I overslept
    If she hold me down, then I might buy her a Patek
    The mandem hold me back, because they know just how I get
    Please, don't hold my money, man, just wire me my check

    I make a pay from your mother, 'cause it's lots on the beach
    White bitches rollin' in the deep
    Nosedivin' off a yacht, into the sea
    Blah, still I keep the blicky on me
    Bitch, I'm off that thing already
    Uh, uh, you know I'm with a ting already
    She is then center fold, a centerpiece
    But she might like that chopper sing already, hmm
    Bitch, I'm off that thing already
    Uh, uh, you know I'm with a ting already
    They don't wanna give me my respect, it's disrespect
    Y'all gon' have to pay out them banks, fuck a check (um, aight)

    I don't do whose the rapper way
    All that cappin' on the net, I'll make the mandem blew a cap away
    So we just let them niggas out the way
    I think I'm Kanye mixed with Donny Hathaway
    I heard Sunday's the new Saturday
    We praisin' God, I watch my enemies evaporate
    Hallelujah, to be honest, I could plan and do you
    But I gotta rise above it, word to Dan Kaluuya
    No chance, buffalo stance on my Neneh Cherry
    They wanna see the Michael that they see on telly
    You man just remind me of my girl, why you never ready?
    I'm the GOAT, but that ain't nothin' I ain't said already
    Oh, please, all my enemies are dead and buried
    I need that Haagen-Dazs, I need that Ben & Jerry's
    If we do it, then we do it large, I'm on my Kevin Perry
    This ain't the same man who said his head was heavy

    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean
    This is what I mean Writer/s: Knox Brown, Michael Ebenazer Owuo Jr., Richard Olowaranti Mbu Isong
