  • Mm-mirror tell me I'm the realest
    Since all these other niggas g-g-gimmicks l-l-lyrics
    Its all gun bustin, its such a lack of the subject.
    C-could I be that nigga rejuvinatin' l-lovers
    D-d-d-did I stutter the missing piece of the puzzle
    Feel like the only rapper that look at you with no trouble
    Its easy on TV make them believe what they be seeing
    M-mirrors never lie so they keep eyes up on they re-runs
    For fear of what you show them, reality is golden
    Real recognize real, you need some IV's to be noticed tho
    One of the coldest to mix pro-tools with your vocals
    What the fans can't see that mm-mirror gon' notice back

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It ain't hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all

    Say there Mr. Mirror, put yourself up to yourself and in
    Just take a look at the reflection that's reflectin' in
    Your own physical, superficial not spiritual
    All the possessions you possess, and they can't keep your spirit full
    You need to hear it fool, but you dont want to listen 'cause
    You so f-full of your-s-self and you just sit and judge
    You point em out, and call em up, and then s-sit em down
    Then you put fertilizer, lyin', spread the shit around
    But if you took a second Mr. Mirror, you would see
    That you just mad at you man, you aint really mad at me
    You took the hatred of yourself and just projected out
    No disrespect, you can't respect yourself then just get out
    For real, you need to go away just like the rain song
    'Cause you f-frontin' and f-fakin' its just plain wrong
    So Mr. Mirror, man I'm just gon' keep it G
    If you can't look up at yourself,
    How the fuck you lookin' at me, mane.

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It is not hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It ain't hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all

    M-m-mirror, t-t-tell me she the realest.
    I met her in the club and she wouldn't let me in it
    S-seen her in a video, seen her in a magazine
    See me I ain't frontin', we ain't see them titties last week
    So far you nasty, ff-fuck you call that?
    I call that insecure, sh-sh-shawty think she all that.
    Ff-fuck outta here, that's how they gettin' gas
    '09 Gold Diggers, walkin' with a different path
    Find a dummy, wrap him up, let him fuck, suck him up
    Gettin' good graces, take his money, aa-another one
    No longer (Caffera?), Surgery and maskera
    Looking at your money,
    But c-can't look up in that mirror
    Fearin' what it show you, reality is gold
    Real recognize real, real women don't know you
    One of the coldest, the gracing On that pole
    What them tempers don't see,
    I bet that mirror gon' show you.

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It ain't hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all

    Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the realest of them all
    That ain't hard, swear to God, these niggas ain't real at all
    Mirror mirror on the wall, Is it right, is it wrong?
    It ain't hard, swear to God. These niggas ain't real at all Writer/s: BERNARD FREEMAN, BERNARD JAMES FREEMAN, MARK D. RONSON, OLUBOWALE VICTOR AKINTIMEHIN, VICTOR AXELROD
