lyrics

Yeah yeah yea (x3)

[Verse]

Sittin back with a C&C soda
Mario on and I got the controller
The game is the same even when you get older
It's a Hard Knock Life while I listen to Hova
Now hold up, tell me who gon' serve lunch
We in no rush, I don't got no trust
Who you once knew, ice in their veins so they stab you with a blade,
wanna talk about cold cuts
And I'm hungry so I'm tearing up flesh
Like a demon I be eating now just tell me who's next
Goldberg what's the word, beatin on my chest
Like a gorilla a killa now go line up all the rest
See I put that on everything that everything gon' change
These rappers would put on anything and that anything is fake chains
With one bar I can buy a car, while yours is minimum wage
You look the part, but you not a star, now don't you find that strange?

[Hook]

Got these jays on my feet, feel like shackles on my feet
I got no chains, no rings, but a microphone and beats
Got these jays on my feet, feel like shackles on my feet
I got no chains, no rings, but a microphone and beats
Pesos pesos, dollar bills by the caseloads
You get paid when I say so and that's the name when this game loads
Pesos pesos, dollar bills by the caseloads
You get paid when I say so and that's the name when this game loads

[Verse]

Sitting back with this mic in my hand
I'm feelin cool cause I gotta couple fans
Swimming pools and I'm poppin rubber bands
But I'll never be that dude, till I get a couple of Gramms
Getting money on the side while I'm dodging Uncle Sam
Back in the day when I had a plan
Back in the day I had to be the man
So it had to be the reason that I had to be a brand
Making money off myself, that's right
Gotta move in stealth, at night
Had to look in my self, that light
Never blinded by wealth, so bright
I got a dollar to my name, you holler for the fame
I would spend it on a session our depression ain't the same
See you worried 'bout the dollars but I'm worried 'bout the change
Cuz it would be an honor leave a legacy and name
I been wrote down my vows, it's time to engage
I came up and got fouled that wild 3-point play
With one bar I can buy a car, while yours is minimum wage
You look the part, but you not a star, now don't you find that strange?

[Hook]
