  • Can I make a million dollars off a rap tune? Can I make a million dollars off a rap tune?

  • I'm tryna make a million dollars off a rap tune

  • [Verse 1] Look, the real is back, the ville is back

  • Flow bananas here, peel this back And what you'll find is, your highness

  • Can paint a picture that is vivid enough to cure blindness

  • Carolina's finest, you knew that already And turned to the greatest, I proved that

  • already And if you would like, I do it twice

  • I just sharpen my blade for a minute became lost in my ways

  • This for my niggas that was tossed in the graves

  • Every so often I fade deep in my thoughts and get lost in the days

  • We used to play before your coffin was made Just got the call nigga got caught with a

  • stray Hope he's okay

  • Just got paid what Cochran got paid to free OJ

  • Just to share my life on the stage in front of strangers

  • Who know a nigga far too well, and that's the danger

  • Know me better than I know myself I rip a page out my notebook in anger

  • And let these thoughts linger, singing

  • [Hook] Don't give 'em too much you

  • Don't let 'em take control It's one thing you do

  • Don't let 'em taint your soul If you believe in God

  • One thing's for sure If you ain't aim too high

  • Then you aim too low

  • [Verse 2] What's the price for a black man life?

  • I check the toe tag, not one zero in sight I turn the TV on, not one hero in sight

  • Unless he dribble or he fiddle with mics Look out the window cause tonight the city

  • lit up with lights, cameras and action May no man alive come through and damage my

  • faction I brought you niggas with me cause I love

  • you like my brothers And your mothers' like my mother

  • Think we need a plan of action The bigger we get the more likely egos collide

  • It's just physics, please let's put our egos aside

  • You my niggas, and should our worst tendencies turn us into enemies

  • I hope that we remember these Nights fulla Hennessey

  • When Hov around we switch up to that D'usse Gotta show respect, one day we tryna stay

  • where you stay Cause we from where you from

  • Not talkin' bout the slums I'm talkin' 'bout that mind state that keep

  • a black nigga dumb Keep a black nigga dyin' by a black nigga

  • gun And keep on listening to the frontin' ass

  • rap niggas sun Yeah I said 'sun'

  • This is New York's finest For 11 winters straight I took on New York's

  • climate Like show me New York's ladder

  • I climb it and set the bar so high that you gotta get Obama to force the air force to

  • find it Never mind it, you'll never reach that

  • Cole is the hypnotist, control the game whenever he snap

  • That's every track

  • [Hook]

  • [Verse 3] I ain't serve no pies, I ain't slang no dope

  • I don't bring no lies, niggas sang my quotes I don't play no games, boy I ain't no joke

  • Like the great Rakim, when I make my notes You niggas might be L or you might be Kane

  • Or you might be Slick Rick with 19 chains Or you might be Drizzy Drake or Kendrick Lamar

  • But check your birth date nigga, you ain't the God

  • Nah you ain't the God Nigga, Cole the God
