(Intro: J. Cole)
This is for my niggas in the fourth quarter
Just watching that clock tick. Yeah

(Verse 1: J. Cole)
You said, at what point do you start seeing bread?
Been out hustling for years, shoe box right under my bed
I move the work out my mommas house, got me a little old crib
I always fantasize if I had went to college instead
Would I be happily married instead of broke and unwed?
My nigga made a major move I said I hope for the best
I told my sister as I kissed her cheek Im better off dead
Fucking with this white, its all been downhill like a sled
Now listen, I understand they say you make your own bed
But tell me who supplied these sheets with this cheap ass thread
In denial about the feds, he cant see past bread
Now do exactly what the man in the ski mask says, okay?
These are the times, survival my only crime
I gotta be on my grind, a lot of my homies gone
Inside of me Lord I know, its a lie that we gon' be fine
But momma Im tired of crying, just lie to me one more time

Cause its crunch time
Cause its crunch time
Shit real man
A nigga got bills man its crunch time.

Shit real man a nigga got bills

(Verse 2: J Cole)
Look, scavenge these records of these days MP3s
Looking for the samples to put a nigga on MTVs
This is for niggas with empty dreams and empty jeans
Still holding on to the word maybe
Cause this 9 to 5 shit is driving you stir crazy
Coming home tired just to hear it from your lady
Hollaring about your baby, need this and need that
And all you want is peace and quiet
Maybe some feedback, on these raps
Cause labels aint hollering, and niggas ain't downloading
Nobody see your vision, they walking around blindfolded
All this time holding on to possibilities
You step outside, you smoke a blunt and then you feel the breeze
Fuck what they talking, it aint like life come often
Only thing worse than death is a regret filled coffin
So try before you die or always wonder what if?
I thank the lord for this wonderful gift
Looking for strength in this crunch time

Looking for strength in the crunch time
This shit real dawg a nigga got bills dawg
Its crunch time
Nigga its crunch time
This shit real dawg a nigga got bills dawg

(Outro: J. Cole)
I feel your pain nigga trust me
For all my niggas out there still trying to get it
Few niggas I know, few niggas I dont know

Shout out to my nigga filthy
Nervous Wreck
Shout out to my nigga Marcus
Nigga I forgive you for all that shit you said
I understand my nigga
Still love. Yeah
