  • I woke up this morning, I had a boner
    I went to sleep last night with no bitch, nigga, I was a loner
    I be going through shit, losin' bitches and homies
    If I don't make it with this rap shit, nigga, I might be homeless
    My moms don't got a job, my pop's checks ain't enough
    If ain't bringin' home that money, my whole family is fucked
    I swear I move like the mob, I'm watchin' movies too much
    If niggas wanted you dead, what would you suggest?
    They wonder why I do drugs and hang with thugs
    Since I made it the city hated, wait, where is the love?
    I ride around with my gun, this is not for fun
    I stay protected cause my homie just took one to the lung
    Had him on life support, where's the family support?
    He knew who shot him, but he ain't even show up in court
    Yeah, that's a real G, nigga, he on a kill spree, nigga
    The homie popped him so I hope he don't kill me, nigga

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    Now I'm ridin' through traffic with 2Pac blastin'
    With a bitch that's irritatin' from all these questions she askin'
    Like what bitches I fucked, when, how and where
    You ain't my main bitch so why the fuck do you care
    That's why bitches get fucked, then turn around and get left
    Somebody need to teach them less talk, more sex
    I'm pressed when I'm stressed, my granny tell me I'm blessed
    Well, why the fuck do Jesus Christ got me goin' through this shit?
    Everybody need favors, what happens if I go broke?
    Or say I ain't got it, then buy my lolo some new spokes
    Right up in your fake setup, fuck you up like some mace
    So fuck your handout, give a young nigga some space
    Give a nigga some Ace, give me a blunt that's laced
    Sprinkle some molly in it, watch me take this shit to my face
    The snitch is the shooter, they took time away from his case
    Holy shit, oh lawd, where is the world today?

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    I swear this industry shit, to me is one big ass lick
    I walk inside of a buildin', tell the A&R nigga strip
    Tell 'em I need all of my chips, my life been known Section 8
    I've been a welfare case, AFDC pump fake
    Meanwhile I'm grindin' cause drug money ain't like rap money
    Four white kilo snow bunny, equal one whole show, dummy
    I'm on this tour bus and I'm fucked up, I got a bad call, they killed Braze
    They killed Chad my big homie Pup
    Puppy eyes in my face, bruh, and I've really been drinkin'
    Why the fuck I've really been smokin'?
    What the fuck, I'm the sober one
    When I'm so stressed out I can't focus
    Hideout when I ride out, ski mask with the eyes out
    Speed past in the Cutlass-me and little Ocho
    And we young nigga hop out
    2 tears in a bucket, I feel like fuck it
    That's the price of fame, recognize my pain, that's all I know
    All alone, but I'm out here though
    Call my troops like vamonos
    I'm on this tour bus and I'm fucked up
    I got a bad call, and it's all bad
    Off OG with my OG and some OE, by the tall glass

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin'

    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    That's why I really be smokin' and I really be drinkin'
    I be going through some things, you don't know what I've been thinkin' Writer/s: BRANDON MOORE, KEENON JACKSON, KENDRICK LAMAR, MARLON BARROW, TYRONE GRIFFIN
