And you're sitting at home doing this shit?

Stop fucking around and be a man

Yo what the fuck is this bullshit on the radio Son?

Chill chill, that's the shit God, chill

Hey yo yo, pull down the shade, man. Let's count this money, nigga
Hey yo Nas, put the Jackson's and the Grants over there
You know what I'm sayin? Cause we spending the Jackson's

For a nigga yo, word to mother. All them crab ass rappers
Be coming up to me man word to mother man I think we need
To let them niggas know it's real man

True indeed, know what I'm saying, but when it's real you doing this
Even without a record contract, know what I'm saying?

We trying to see many mansions and, and Coupes kid!

True, true

Hey yo where's Grand Wizard and Mayo at man?
