  • On my way to Bootsy Bellows with hella the hoes
    Try and think what I'ma tell 'em when they get alone
    I'm a glutton for women I shouldn't yearn for
    Shouldn't be tempted, but baby, I like to hurt, or
    Maybe 'cause I was searchin', I found me the perfect person
    But me and her didn't work out, she buried what she worked for
    And I carried the bitterness of a kola nut
    Nigerian shit, my parents never showed much
    Womanizer, probably could've been a feminist
    'Cause I respect 'em, but Lord, I got polygamy problems
    The hoodie come from Barneys, spendin' money is therapeutic
    To wear the shit they don't think that you care to buy
    So we buying Prada, Balenciaga like it is nada
    In the Ferrari, my fear is God and tax problems
    Pierre Moss, I dropped ten on my last visit
    And half that up at Saks, I favor black businesses

    Sue me, l'm rootin' for everybody that's black, yeah, uh huh, yeah
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black, yo, yo yo, look, look
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black
    Spent 'bout two racks on handmade durags
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black
    That's everybody from sports to college class to rap, and back

    Hold up, yo, look
    People, people, the high life is a movie, we ain't promised a sequel
    Ambition, my second album, how was you sleepin'?
    Dropped the album with Seinfeld, they thought I was tweakin'
    A prophet, a genius
    I'm flyin' with Lena, I'm ridin' with Nina
    One write for the Chi, one right where I need her
    The funny thing is I'll always be single
    I love me some Logan, I love me some Issa
    I'll never get either, no one Venice Queens me
    I'm a drunk, I'm a demon
    Heaven knows I'm a dreamer
    I seen Taraji and Kelvin, always hope I could be that
    I fell in love with an actress actin' like she don't need me
    Polarizin' the sun, underrated again
    Show business will never love you the way you love it
    You come and we go, they quick to forget
    So every boujee event I attend, I tell 'em this

    Sue me, l'm rootin' for everybody that's black, yeah, uh huh, yeah
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black, yo, yo yo, look, look
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black
    Spent 'bout two racks on handmade durags
    Sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black
    That's everybody from sports to college class to rap, and back

    I need you to know you're so beautiful
    I need you to know you're so beautiful, oh

    Okay, sue me, I'm rootin' for everybody that's black
    Everybody be asking my sixth album my last
    I'm super sick of this business
    My daughter missin' me, nigga
    The whip is bullet repellent
    But they gon' kill me with tax
    Niggas really on clout, they ain't checkin' for stats
    Who a decade or better, givin' niggas decadent rap
    Respect is in order, hate me, better do it loud
    Root for everybody black, haters say "That's crazy, wow"
    That's crazy, wow Writer/s: Darius Wooten, Kelly Price, Norva Denton, Olubowale Akintimehin, Tracy Carter, William Harmon
