88
by Wale

Album: The Gifted (2013)
  • Yeah
    So it's on me
    I copped threes for the whole team
    Now we at the top
    MJ, 88, and I ain't ever gonna stop

    Carolina blue kicks
    Hottest nigga on your block
    I ain't J.R. Rider but them wolves coming for my spot
    From the percentage of youngins winning without no college
    I'm in my Laneys but nothing JV about this balling
    I lost my deal, got with Will he seen a nigga genius
    My rapping skills is on Chapel Hill but you ain't see it
    Eyes low, pyro
    Grape swisher, my 5's on
    My opposition decline slow
    My J's straight out of China like they be Cairo
    Shout out to Tyga but my squad Balenciaga
    One of the rarest in flyest niggas to rep the chocolate
    It was all a dream, it was all a dream
    Never Michael Jeffrey in 17s, I'm staying with my team
    No bullshit loyalty rare
    And don't worry 'bout it shawty we here

    So it's on me!
    I copped threes for the whole team
    Now we at the top
    MJ, '88, and I ain't ever coming down
    Work
    So it's on me
    I copped threes for the whole team
    Now we at the top
    MJ, '88 and I ain't ever comin down
    Work
    And the people say
    And the people say

    Groupies everywhere, I'm mentally prepared
    I got a black and red joint, I bet they thinking bred
    They tryna see me fail
    Just know my thinking and my sneakers rare
    Get that Chi-Town love, I'm in Leaders gear
    Bet they got they pom-poms up
    Soon as I see O'Hare Seven
    I make a damn movie fooly
    I been the dookie
    These rappers is Sam Bowie to me
    I was a Bowie student
    It wasn't really nothing
    That's why I kicked it and blew grass like Boise punter
    This is no Space Jam
    I'm out the globe stunting
    I'm a one man band, I prolly Jordan 1 em
    And all my singles golden
    I will not forfeit, this my defining moment you know
    Seven Eleven, yea I got 'em open
    Eleven pair of 7s, they touching my rap touring
    It was all a dream, it was all a dream
    And when I'm 45, do it like I'm 23
    And premature, tell me I'm wrong if a nigga swing I feel it jack
    I was just waiting 'til the sixth ring

    So it's on me!
    I copped threes for the whole team
    Now we at the top
    MJ, '88, and I ain't ever coming down
    Work
    So it's on me
    I copped threes for the whole team
    Now we at the top
    MJ, '88 and I ain't ever comin down Writer/s: PETER O. PHILLIPS, DANIEL SIMMONS, SHAWN CARTER, NASIR JONES, DAVID ANTHONY WILLIS, LONNIE LISTON SMITH, JOHN MAULTSBY, MARCOS ENRIQUE PALACIOS, ERNEST CLARK, JASON PHILLIPS, KEITH JAMES
