  • Uh, you would have thought that from seeing me going hard
    That that'd motivate these motherfuckers to get on they job
    But instead they hating on what I've been doing
    Having conversations in my face about what I should do for 'em
    What I'mma do keep rolling and dropping weed on 'em
    Pack my bags look like I'm staying for weeks but be gone in the morning
    If the flight is private, we probably should board it
    You see it you like it, I can probably afford it
    If niggas really felt some type of way about the shit I'm doing
    You picked a crazy time to start letting me know
    Cause jealousy and envy that's a trait for mostly bitches
    Not a man so you ain't one if you letting it show
    Now the money like the weed how we letting it grow
    And I ain't holding on to shit I'm letting it go
    Started small but now we all in them bigger game
    All in a bigger plane, ballin' and getting paid

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    My phone is dead, but I got a contact
    My sharpie paint pen on my Timbo combats
    You talk shit, I won't respond back
    What they gon' get, and you don't want that
    That nigga will forget the deal
    Remember what? get for real
    My whip appeal, my crib is real
    My wrist as well you know...the Richard Mille
    And my grunge nigga, I make her come quicker
    Then rock toe socks, yellow sponge nigga
    I Tebow, for hoes that eat hoes
    Emojis fo' me and my people
    The hoes love me, I'm on they TiVo
    I work they thighs, and they kegels
    Skateboard, I love Chanel
    Retweet me bitch, I'm Pharrell

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    Yeah, I hustle no muscle
    I'll never be muzzled
    I'm a piece to a puzzle
    I'm Robert Townsend and my words gon' Hollywood Shuffle
    My nigga I move moo, my motivation is moves foo'
    I get up and does do, I evenly do ten things at once
    Multitaskin' super fast and king of tattin' super pimpin'
    House of rollin' run a business while I'm tourin' on you bitches
    Doing features while watching a double feature nigga
    I see you suffering from haterism, get that check
    I take nothin' and make somethin' there's no breaks when the hustle's runnin'
    Ain't dealin' with fakes ain't fuckin' with snakes
    They all in my face now they got what it takes my nigga I'm straight
    So don't reach out cause I peaced out when I reached out
    There's no response like knockin' on an empty house
    Yeah, so I keep on while you peep on what I be on and you're behind
    That's what karma's about

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    First the love was there
    Then the paper came
    Then the haters came
    But we still rise above

    Man what the fuck is wrong with these niggas
    They rollin' up, let alone doin' a song with these niggas
    Claimin' they ballin', to me they playin'
    These niggas ain't really doin' what they sayin'

    Man what the fuck is wrong with these niggas
    They rollin' up, let alone doin' a song with these niggas
    Claimin' they ballin', to me they playin'
    These niggas ain't really doin' what they sayin' Writer/s: CAMERON THOMAZ, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, TUKI CARTER
