lyrics

[Verse - Dave]
I wish I was a little bit taller
Then maybe I would’ve practiced a little more harder
As a young nigga I had dreams of playing for them Hoyas
Til I started bulldogging hoes and retaining lawyers
Still I wanted to shop for clothers, pledge old gold
Had all of it, jagged the scholarship now they refi’ing the mortgage
Now we gotta hustle so that momma can afford it
Momma loan adjustable and now she can’t avoid it
Pause or eject and when that bitch reset
Game over, no more quarters, continue or cheats left
Continue with my agenda still washing sheet sets
Before my girl come over once the last freak left
Before I hurl, hung over from the last drink
Breath on ten from the night before
Chin to the sky as if the shits all well like a brim to the side
I was finna stress til I learned to live with regrets

[Hook - TeLuv]
I aint the one to be stressing bout nothing
Unless It’s bout the money you owe me
Cuz mama said the cream rise to the top
I’m on the grind cuz the top is so lonely
And I aint going back on nothing I’ma stand my ground
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Get it how I live that’s how I get down
Down --- That’s how I get down

[Verse - Chris]
I wish I was a little bit taller
Then maybe I would’ve practiced a little more harder
As a young nigga I had dreams of playing for them Hoyas
Til I started bulldogging hoes and retaining lawyers
Cases, cases, cases, bottles, trips, court appointments
Had a couple of each before I could afford them
Shit aint never been sweet, but I’m seasoned to perfection
I swear these niggas confection, I’m over here in the kitchen
Cooking up success, hoping people will listen
Trying to better my best, I swear I’m my toughest critic so
Kick it up a notch, BAM! Look at my address, DAMN!
Look at how he dress, DAMN! Why he so so fresh?
Y’all niggas so so def, aint tryna hear nothing
But I got a golden ear and that’s germane to production
The only thing to fear is fear itself and that’s nothing
The only thing to fear is fear itself and that’s nothing

[Hook]
