The Intro About Nothing
by Wale

Album: Album About Nothing (2015)
  • Lord, my all, what you think of it?
    Been on this long road accumulating luggage
    As time proceeds, preoccupied with everything
    I think it's 'bout time I sing of nothing

    Sipping wine, sipping wine, cause my Henny finished
    Hard to be friendly with women who've seen too many niggas
    So I keep my circle small, you need reduction
    Never too much friends, what is your circumference?
    I swear to God, times is hard, but they're getting better
    Tryna enjoy every moment, but see we so competitive
    Gubana made the level, and I never missed a supper
    But still my hunger's like a fucking model at a buffet
    I'm with these broads who in love, they ain't seen any better
    But dollar signs never mind, and he keep a zero
    And if my heart could speak, it would talk to freaks
    And leave the room when a nigga try to sleep with 'em
    Getting high, getting by, watching time fly
    Tell my niggas, I'ma get 'em if they gon' ride
    Young, wild nigga living the dream
    Although I'm not who I'm destined to be
    They keep saying, "Grow up"

    Lord, my all, what you think of it?
    Been on this long road accumulating luggage
    As time proceeds, preoccupied with everything
    I think it's 'bout time I sing of nothing

    Been on this long road accumulating luggage
    As time proceeds, preoccupied with everything
    I think it's 'bout time I sing of nothing

    I pray my girl don't turn to my baby mother yet
    But in fact I do, I need by boo to keep my shit in check
    And shit get easier when dreams of chasing respect
    Get realized, and ain't no team invading your set
    Getting high, getting by as my mind fly
    Just bought my homie a Roley simply to pass time
    And on top it's lonely so keep your homies right by your side
    And if life is short then we'll be the shorts of the Fab Five
    Severed ties with any nigga who covet mine
    And all the stunting got me looking ugly in momma's eyes
    But I gotta do it, these niggas need provocative music
    And as a youth momma worked too much to have an influence
    Rapping and music, a bunch of bitches acting too foolish
    You gotta be stupid, even Tim Allen had him a tooly
    Getting high, sitting down, thinking out loud
    It's a shame niggas lame, but I'mma hold it down
    Let my bread roll, never let my friends go
    That's why I let these dreads grow, I'll never fit your fucking crown
    Getting high, getting by, watching time fly
    Tell these niggas I'mma get 'em every other time
    Young, wild niggas sit in your seat
    Know every weekend every liquor for free
    [?] believe, [?] bitch, I sow what I reap
    Double M genius, make these bitches so deep
    I make these niggas' opinion on younger lyricists consistently weak
    Put my cardio in the rdio and you missin' the beat
    I'm out, standing in every avenue, I'm good in the streets
    Outstanding, shitting on niggas, but you sit when you pee
    Hold up

    Lord, my all, what you think of it?
