[Verse 1: Tranqill]
Tranq on that ish again, back to the grill again
No time for waste man, they bitch cause they feminine
Brown sugar, cinnamon, just 'bout my women friend
Stay up on that cash ting, no hate cause I'm livin', kid
Shots if you on yours, small drawers and top floors
Some love to hate, yo, piss out champagne though
Everybody claimin' that money I feel they fakin'
While them constipated rappers be missing me with their bailiff
But I'm right, I'm doin' me, damn, right, I'm doin' me
Stack pounds on pounds, so fams nice, we're jammin' (we're jammin')
Eatin' good, just like we always should
Know me and how I stay, sucker free out the gate
Been up on my Jones, get money, don't make it home
The streets is steady watchin', them bitches, they wanna bone
Frienemies, they be plottin', I pray that I make it home
Just know I'm always ready for the ride, like right

[Hook: Tranqill] x2
Worse before better, worse before better
Them men, they don't peck where I'm from
Brought down, get up, knock down, get up
If you're on my vibe catch a vibe

[Verse 2: Oddisee]
Just a little flex like, boys wanna test like
I don't know they're fake, and they go on dates with a flesh light
Comin' to you live from the county of Prince Georges
Where men learn how to live cause we're comprehended what death like
Product of the wishes to jump up out of the ditches
You better learn to step right, we don't believe in no forfeits
Yeah come correct like every day is my best night
So let me get the check while you bother to do the dishes
I'm smarter than you predicted so quit it before you start it
My presence raised the rent in the buildin' 'til you evicted
Keep up the pace, keep up the chase
You don't like me when you sight me, best to keep up the face
I run a lot that you don't know about
Showin' out'll get you thrown out, free up the space, go on out
I'm diggin' in the trenches to relax in the Sun
Romancin' when the tragedies done

[Hook] x2
