Hope you know, hope you know some good thang
With a cup of purple
Homie hope you know some good brand
With a cup of purple
Hope you know some good brand
With a kind of purple
Hope you know some good brand
With a kind of purple
And we know it, yea
And you know it, yea
And we know it, yea
And you know it, yea

And I know that you smoke
I know that you broke
On that dirty sprite with us, you know that good purple potion
I wrote this shit for my homies who checked out before me
I blow this dope, just smoking way
Cause every day we be on it
And we know it,
Crack a sip by the bit
Now we rollin, rollin,
Drop my top, and creeping wheel
I’m still motion
Stack a hundred dollar bills
I can’t fold it, nah
I can’t fold it, yea

And yo, I hope you know that I’m thuggin
Hope you know that I’m rollin dough
Styrofoam stay muddy, pouring up til I overdose
Always smokin on goods
We don’t fuck with them swisher sweets
We only mess with them baddest bitches,
Them bujy bitches don’t interest me
Hoe she know she gonn get it
Hoe she know she gonn give it up
Say she stay with a nigga
Hoe she know what I’m givin for
Know I stay with that pack
16 and that wax
Throw it up as we blow it up
And blow big dope in that ‘Lac

And we know it, yea
And you know it, yea
And we know it, yea
And I hope you know this stuff
Cause you smoking purple
And you know it, yea
And we know it, yea
And you know it, yea
And I hope you know this stuff
Cause you smoking purple

Eyes yella red, got my thing from California
Stepped out in the X and got some more head in the Rover
Introduce the usual with the piff cause I’m chosen
That purple from that old fan and now my styrofoam is golden
It be in it for my niggas, promethazine sippers
Good sprite to the ocean spray, and I ain’t really thinking on the mix I’m with it
Sitting I get up all my niggas
Blow haze, I love my niggas
Roll down and the rims G’s up
I’ma pour another cup til I’m up there with you
Cause I know I know I know


And I know that you smoke
I know that you broke
On that dirty sprite with us, you know that good purple potion
I wrote this shit for my homies who checked out before me
I blow this dope, just smoking way
Cause every day we be on it.
