{And you're sitting at home doing this shit?

Stop fucking around and be a man
There ain't nothing out here for you

Chill chill, that's the shit God, chill
Aiyyo yo, pull down the shade, man
Let's count this money, nigguh
Aiyyo Nas, put the Jacksons and the Grants over there
You know what I'm sayin'? 'Cause we spendin' the Jacksons

All them crab ass rappers be comin' up to me man

No doubt I'm saying regardless how it go down we gon' keep it real
We trying to see many mansions and, and Coupes kid
