Toro y Moi – You And I

This music’s way too loud
Just to summarize, I don’t think we’re done with all the issues
Overnight, overnight
Is that I know this way is more than real
I’m just a satellite, I’ve been zonin’ out

I can feel a change coming over us and it’s gonna hurt
It’s the universe
I been workin’ weekends, I can’t tell the difference if I’m alive
Oh, my god, it took too long for me to find out if
I really am for us, all this
So we might as well be falling while holdin’ on

I don’t think it’s me, I don’t think it’s you
So we might as well be falling while holdin’ on
[Verse 2]
I think you and I just weren’t thinkin’ right
I thought twenty-nine was an easy one to get through
It’s so wild, everybody went and changed overnight
[Refrain]
Mother Nature, you gave me a lifetime
In the desert, you came into my mind
There’s only really one reason I know what to feel
Left me all to pieces, she got me fallin’ out of love
Oh, my god, it took a while
[Verse 1]

Macklemore – Glorious (feat. Skylar Grey) (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)

We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)
I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
My mama told me never bow your head, woo!
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
Got a chance to start again
Another sprint, another step
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]
[Bridge: Skylar Grey]
Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]

It’s who I am, how could I forget?
[Verse 2: Macklemore]
I was born for this, born for this
Okay, okay, yes I do
I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
[Verse 1: Macklemore]
And now I see the sunrise
I made it through the darkest part of the night
Got 20,000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
I was born for this, born for this
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave

And some peace of mind
It’s who I am, how could I forget?

I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
You know that we been going in
Now I feel glorious, glorious
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride

When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
They don’t make you who you are
Legend it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Another day, another breath
Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
We posted on the porch, my family’s glasses to the stars
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
You know I’m back like I never left
Now I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
The world is up for grabs
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
En garde, things are just things
The world is up for grabs

We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
And shit I’m straight
I was born for this, born for this
I made it through the darkest part of the night
Can’t pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you’re gone
I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I’m feeling glorious
Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
And now I see the sunrise
[Chorus: Skylar Grey]
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die

Weezer – Feels Like Summer (Acoustic)

Let me see the smile, stay with me awhile
Let me see the smile, stay with me awhile

Bye, bye, sugar blue eyes
I’m still in my bathrobe
Climbing up the tower
[Chorus]
June bride, shine so bright
Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer
Hiding in the shadows

Flowers in her hair, we look good together
[Chorus]
Just a boy and his computer
Your words will fade away
I’m holding on and I don’t want to let you go
Thank you for being so kind
[Outro]
When she was a lover to me
I’m not used to losing
Yeah it feels like summer to me

Shattered by an email
I’m an iceberg with a warm heart
Yeah it feels like summer
Will only last one day
You’re home with the angels
I cry for you, you were the song in my life
I cried for you, you were the song in my life
I’m holding on and I don’t want to let you go
Yeah it feels like summer
[Bridge]
I’m a Libra, if it matters
I’m spiritual, not religious
[Verse 1]
We look good together
Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer to me
And she was a lover to me, to me, to me, to me
When she was a lover to me
Flowers in her hair, but it just ain’t right
Which way is the graveyard?
[Chorus]
Castle built in the sand
June bride, shine so bright
[Verse 2]
Yeah it feels like summer to me

Jay-Z – Kill Jay Z (4:44 Album)

But you can’t heal what you never reveal
You don’t need an alibi, JAY-Z
Crazy how life works
You almost went Eric Benét
But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane
Nigga, never go Eric Benét
But you got a daughter, gotta get softer
But you gotta do better, boy, you owe it to Blue
You got a knot in your chest, imagine how a knife hurts
But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe
Your excuse was "He was talkin’ too reckless!"
Let the baddest girl in the world get away
Bye, JAY-Z
"Fuck wrong with everybody?" is what you sayin’
13 bottles of Ace of Spade, what it did to Boston
You gave him 20 million without blinkin’
How can we know if we can trust JAY-Z?
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles
He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?
You know you owe the truth to all the youth
You had lost it
But this ‘fuck everybody’ attitude ain’t natural
You’ll never be enough, let’s just keep it real, JAY-Z
You walkin’ around like you invincible
In the future, other niggas playin’ football with your son
And you know better, nigga, I know you do
You got high on life, that shit drugged you
Kill JAY-Z, they’ll never love you
You egged Solange on
What’s up, JAY-Z?
You got people you love you sold drugs to
Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong
I don’t even know what else to say
Fuck JAY-Z, I mean, you shot your own brother
Your left is sayin’, "Finish your breakfast!"
I know people backstab you, I feel bad too
Die JAY-Z, this ain’t back in the days
That fell in love with JAY-Z
Cry JAY-Z, we know the pain is real
I don’t even know what you woulda done
You had no father, you had the armor
You stabbed Un over some records
Nah, JAY-Z
Let go your ego over your right shoulder
But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye
[Verse]

Jay-Z – The Story Of O.J. (4:44 Album)

Jay-Z – Smile (feat. Gloria Carter) (4:44 Album)

Yet it’s legal in Colorado
Mama had four kids, but she’s a lesbian
‘Cause the more I reveal me, the more they ‘fraid of the real me
Society shame and the pain was too much to take
[Verse 1: JAY-Z]
Good morn’ or evening, friends
Far as draft picks, my name did not get called
Oh yeah, I was born with a pair
Good morn’ or evening, friends
But he gotta respect the Elohim as a whole new regime
Welcome back Carter, smile
God in the flesh, the rest of these niggas is vain
We drinkin’ Cristal in, yeah
But my story’s too wide to fit inside the line
Living in the shadow
I mastered my aesthetics
Black entrepreneurs, free enterprise
Hall of Fame Hov, I did it all without a pen
Had to pretend so long that she’s a thespian
Even if I’m not with you here today, smile
So our music is ours

Tryna put a million on the whole team now
Niggas’ll love you but hate you ’cause they can’t be you
God sent me to break the chain
In the shadows people see you as happy and free
habit Can’t even support my Mrs.
‘Bout bein’ back in the Lexus
How niggas can’t relate?
Launderin’ dirty money like the Teamsters, huh
Can you imagine what kind of life it is to live?
Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her
Jewelry shoppin’ in Paris
Put the rest away for Blue"
Because that’s what you want them to see
My therapist said I relapsed
Norman Cake, he looked up and out of the Lear
A loss ain’t a loss, it’s a lesson
Playin’ for high stakes
In every one of y’all televised shows
Here’s your friendly announcer
Niggas switched sides, traded pride, we don’t do all that
I know you often heard me wax poetic
Take a young niggas freedom over some dirt
You live in the shadows for fear of someone hurting your family or the person you love
Good morn’ or evening, friends
That’s why it’s a black market, that’s why it’s called "the trap"
Living two lives, happy, but not free
I still ain’t trippin’, that’s life, winners and losers
All y’all jewelers should be embarrassed, huh
No harm for them, no harm for me

Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate
The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free
Smile
Appreciate the pain, it’s a blessin’
Ours was, "Fuck you, pay me"
Ahhhh, what did I do?
Marie Antoinette, baby, let ’em eat cake
Oh y’all thought I was washed?
I just wanna see you smile through all the hate
Fuck a slice of the apple pie, want my own cake
Chargin’ my own fate
Yeah, we deny
That blood money, I giggle at it
‘Cept try to free you
Bet before I go I put a billion on the board
[Chorus: JAY-Z & Stevie Wonder]
[Outro: Gloria Carter]
Cried tears of joy when you fell in love
Feared for you, bro, we know the system don’t work
Niggas’ll rip your shit off TIDAL just to spite you
And too old, these that drugs
[Verse 2: JAY-Z]
Flyin’ paper planes through the projects
Dump ’em all in the bayou, uh
A nigga up in the hundreds of millions
So all the ladies havin’ babies, see a sacrifice
Drinkin’ Ace of Spade like it’s codeine now
I said, "Prehaps I Freudian slipped in European whips"
But trust me, that was nothin’
All these people was gon’ kill me, heh
Drug dealers and abusers, America likes me ruthless
Super facts
Now you see the real in the front row
Slappin’ out of the toy, the separation is clear
Now the whole projects on my jet
Good times never fade away, smile
Everybody wave bye to the guy you thought you could lie to
[Verse 3: JAY-Z]
That’s why it’s called "the projects" ’cause it’s exactly that!
When I heard you got booked, that shit hurt

[Chorus: JAY-Z & Stevie Wonder]
Blood diamonds drippin’, we cute
Bad times turn to good memories, smile
Love who you love, because life isn’t guaranteed
Living in the shadow feels like the safe place to be
But you live with the fear of just being me
This was meant to be a haiku, huh
Good times never fade away, smile
But life is short, and it’s time to be free

20 years ago we drove Bentley Azures
And niggas playin’ for power, huh
Y’all knew that was comin’, I had to remind y’all again, huh?
I’m the true and livin’
Shout out to Hoffa back home, he in the church
Even when I’m gone and you remember me, smile
Smile
Smile
Bad times turn to good memories, smile

A stain on the white suit, inferior IQ
Slammin’ Bentley doors like we invented doors
I’m at the cleaners

Look, you a pedestrian
I have no ceilings, ah, this that feelin’, I’m that boy
Respect Jimmy Iovine
Smile, you recordin’?
Heroin flow, I spaz on the stove
Push through the pain so we can see new life
Kept the trey on me like Chris Paulin’
Anita Baker’s "You Bring Me Joy"
Now it’s, "Fuck payin’ me, I pay you
In my rear-view mirror, objects is further than they appear
Don’t ever question the security I provided you
[Intro: JAY-Z & Stevie Wonder]
This is Hov, no Flex zone, nigga, who lied to you?
Even if I’m not with you here today, smile
Even when I’m gone and you remember me, smile
Niggas only own houses

Jay-Z – Caught Their Eyes (feat. Frank Ocean) (4:44 Album)

I’m ready for it
Solipsistic admit it, I see you there
I’m ready for earth, ready for real
And show up at the funeral, complete with blank stares

Hoping I can touch what I see
They pretend we can but the vibes don’t fly
Your eyes speak the truth with everything else, stars
‘Cause I’ve been ready for you, for real
[Bridge: JAY-Z]
Yeah
I’ve seen pure admiration become rivals
Your eyes speak the truth with everything else, stars
[Intro: Frank Ocean]
Talking about that "he saw" nigga
With that "he saw"

My eyes wide shut to all the lies

I sat down with Prince, eye to eye
God dance, uh
Still stinging from tears, they try to see you

He saw a nigga
I can’t tell if you’re image or are just the flare
Ready for it, deep breath, fill up the void
Now, Londell McMillan, he must be color blind
But ain’t no Biggie, no lazy eye, huh
So it seems, so you seem
They only see green from them purple eyes
Talking about that "he saw" nigga
He told me his wishes before he died
Around friends who kill they friends
[Verse 2: JAY-Z]
Y’all body language is all remedial

I can’t tell if you’re image or are just the flare
They pretend we can but the vibes don’t fly
I seen eyes wide as they about to shoot
Then hug their friends’ mothers
[Bridge: JAY-Z]
With that "he saw"
I’ve been to Paris at least two times
In my dreams, in my dreams
In my dreams, in my dreams
Ah
I survived reading guys like you
How could you see the difference between you and I?
Solipsistic admit it, I see you there
Eyes open them up, check out the cords
You greedy bastards sold tickets to walk through his house
These industry niggas, they always been fishy
With that "we saw" nigga
You know the world can see just how phony you act, bruh
I’m surprised you ain’t auction off the casket
God dance, uh
[Outro: Frank Ocean]
I’ve seen the Eiffel, I’ve seen a eyeful
With that "[?] saw"
They eyes hide, they eyes high
Ready for it
With that "[?] saw"
Invisible ink, I had to read things that wasn’t there
You think he wanted the masters with his masters?
I’m ready for earth, ready for real
I’m surprised y’all think you can disguise y’all truths
Memories may sneak down my cheek

[Verse 1: JAY-Z]

Ready for it, deep breath, fill up the void
Don’t big bro me, don’t big homie
My crash course was much tougher
Uh
I’ve been ready for this for real
But I could see a side eye in my sleep
Eyes open them up, check out the cords
I’ve been out of touch for a couple years
I wave to these haters, don’t give me dap
This guy had ‘Slave’ on his face
You can be a hairpin off and you can trigger your roots
So it seems, so you seem
[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
With that "we saw" nigga
Still stinging from tears, they try to see you
[Chorus: Frank Ocean]
East-side nigga

Jay-Z – 4:44 (4:44 Album)

That was your 21st birthday, you mature faster than me
I will be emotionally available if I invited you over
Something about me that you didn’t know
[Verse 3: JAY-Z]
Took me too long for this song
I apologize to all the woman whom I
Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face
Why do I keep on running away?
So I apologize
I stew over what if you over my shit?
Toyed with you emotions because I was emotionless
[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
I’m never gonna treat you like I should
[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
Or sleep with our back turned
Took for my child to be born
And then we end a space with a dark stop
If they ain’t look at me the same
I don’t deserve you, I harass you out in Paris
Said: "Don’t embarrass me," instead of "Be mine"

See through a woman’s eyes
And let love light the way
Your eyes leave with the soul that your body once housed
I’m letting you down everyday
I’m never gonna treat you
My heart breaks for the day I had to explain my mistakes
Meant to cry and die alone in these mansions
I apologize, our love was one for the ages and I contained us
I promised, I cried, I couldn’t hold
Letting you down everyday
Look, I apologize, often womanize
For Blue’s tooth, the tooth fairy didn’t pay
Please pick up the phone, pick up the phone
And you stare blankly into space
[Intro: Kim Burrell]
I’ve seen the innocence leave your eyes
I still mourn this death, I apologize for all the stillborns
Do I find it so hard
When I know in my heart
And you go online and see
‘Cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it
And the mask goes away and Santa Claus is fake
"You risked that for Blue?"
I wasn’t ready, so I apologize

We’re supposed to vacay ’til our backs burn
I would prob’ly die with all the shame
Never gonna treat you like I should

We’re supposed to laugh ’til our hearts stops
What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate?
That was my proposal for us to go steady
[Verse 2: JAY-Z]
I apologize ’cause at your best you are love
[Verse 1: JAY-Z]
Please come back to Rome, you make it home
Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles
I suck at love, I think I need a do-over
I never wanted another woman to know
Thinkin’ of all the time you wasted in on all this basic shit
And all this ratchet shit and we more expansive now
And because I fall short of what I say I’m all about
[Chorus: Hannah Williams]
And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do

If I wasn’t a superhero in your face

"You did what with who?"
I’m never gonna treat you
We talked for hours when you were on tour
Never gonna treat you like I should

Jay-Z – Family Feud (4:44 Album)

Can I get "Amen" from the congregation?
Turn my vocal up
Higher, higher, higher, higher
But we ain’t get through to you yet, uh
Can’t losin’ the babies ’cause their future’s uncertain
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me alone, Becky
Wait, that ain’t politically correct
My wife in the crib feedin’ the kids liquid gold
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
Higher, higher, higher, higher
Turn my vocal up some more
Pretty much

I would say I’m the realest nigga rappin’
And we merrily merrily eatin’ off these streams
Higher, higher, higher, higher
But that ain’t even a statement
Nobody wins when the family feuds
My nigga got on all white, no socks
Higher
Oh, we gon’ reach a billi’ first
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
But my stash can’t fit into Steve Harvey’s suit
[Interlude: JAY-Z & Beyoncé]
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, I’ll fuck up a good thing if you let me
[Outro: Beyoncé]
Kid that used to pitch bricks can’t be pigeonholed
Y’all think small, I think Biggie

How is him or Pill Cosby s’posed to help me?
What’s better than one billionaire? Two (two)
Alhamdulillah, I run through ’em all
If anybody gettin’ handsome checks, it should be us
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
We all lose when the family feuds
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
That’s like sayin’ I’m the tallest midget

I cooked up more chicken when the kitchen closed
‘Specially if they’re from the same hue as you
Love me like, love
Like 2Pac ain’t have a nose ring too, huh
[Verse 1: JAY-Z]
We all screwed ’cause we never had the tools
Ain’t no such thing as an ugly billionaire, I’m cute
My consciousness was Michael’s common sense

Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
Old niggas never accepted me
Super Bowl goals
I told my wife the spiritual shit really work
Amen, amen
Y’all stop me when I stop tellin’ the truth
That’s how he feel
Y’all need to stop
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
I’ll watch Godfather, I miss that whole shit
Y’all whole pass is in danger, ten Mississippi
We in a whole different mode
And old niggas, y’all stop actin’ brand new
Hovi’s home, all these phonies come to a halt
I’ll be damned if I drink some Belvedere while Puff got CÎROC
New niggas is the reason I stopped drinkin’ Dos Equis
My nigga got that cocaina on today
All this old talk left me confused

Fuck rap, crack cocaine

Hahahaha
Higher, higher

Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah
Al Sharpton in the mirror takin’ selfies
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
Mmmmm
I’m clear why I’m here, how about you?
Turn the music up too
Y’all still drinkin’ Perrier-Jouët, huh
You’d rather be old rich me or new you?
Hundred percent, Black-owned champagne
[Verse 3: JAY-Z]
A man that don’t take care his family can’t be rich
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
My nigga got on
Higher, higher, higher, higher
Two What’s better than one billionaire?
Nah, we did that, Black-owned things
[Verse 2: JAY-Z & Beyoncé]
Turn my vocal up, Guru!
I missed the karma and that came as a consequence
Can I get a "Amen" from the congregation?
Forget it
I’m tryna fix you
Nobody wins when the family feuds
That’s how you feel, Emory?
Amen, amen
yeah, yeah, yeah Like….
Like…. yeah, yeah, yeah

Jay-Z – Bam (feat. Damian Marley) (4:44 Album)

Fuck all this pretty Shawn Carter shit nigga, HOV
For the final time you don’t believe these fools
Y’all be talkin’ crazy under them IG pictures
Fuck all this pretty Shawn Carter shit nigga, HOV
Now greetings to the world

Can’t you see it’s my ambition
Too much watchy, watchy, watchy
This a hunting season
[Verse 1: Jay Z]
Sometimes you need your ego, gotta remind these fools
When mi come a dance and mi spliff and Guinness
I’ve never seen a worker rock so many jewels
Those were just the words you’ll never hear again
Gangsta no live in a tenement yard
Niggas could not be further, I fathered your style
Y’all couldn’t stop me, you’re not as tough as you say you are
Uh, niggas is skippin’ leg day just to run they mouth
Ty Ty jumped over niggas and he’s like 5’6"
Just set the price so niggas’ll live your live, my nigga

[Chorus: Damian Marley and Jay Z]
Too much watchy, watchy, watchy
Them su, su, su, su, su
That’s a war chest in case you need your chest knocked off
Too much su, su, su, su, su
What a bam bam
I miss a what a bam bam (Do it, Jay!)
Shawn was in flight mode, I bought a Pyrex
Fuck all this pretty Shawn Carter shit nigga, HOV
Gangsta no live in a tenement yard
Them chatty, chatty, chatty
Them chatty, chatty, chatty

I’ll come to nice up the whole nation
Too much watchy, watchy, watchy
I’ll come to nice up the whole nation
Got the heart of a giant, don’t you ever forget
Rude boy no live in a tenement yard
Who they effin’ with, and we got FN’s too
Them su, su, su, su, su
Shit, stuff a million dollars in the sock drawer

I’ll line you all up with one finger wave
Too much su, su, su, su, su
Laced front to the back, don’t front
My advice is just don’t be too nice to niggas
[Outro: Damian Marley]

[Chorus: Damian Marley and Jay Z]
We the only ones really movin’ like y’all say y’all do
[Chorus: Damian Marley and Jay Z]
Spinners and dumpling season

Don’t play by the king
Well, I tell ya something season

Them su, su, su, su, su

I don’t give a God damn
Ooh wee, huh
Yow this a hunting season
So when you get to Hell you tell ’em blanco sent you
I was in fight mode and now it’s "fuck me, mijo"
Before we had A&R’s, we had AR’s too
Shawn was on that gospel shit
Emory passed you niggas and he did a bid
I don’t give a God damn
Top ranking, keep it skanking
I pressed ahead of your team with one finger curled
Put that drum in your ear, don’t get Srem’d
I was movin’ them kilos, help you move your peoples
Gangsta no live in a tenement yard
Dreadlocks no live in a tenement yard
Once upon a time in the projects
Don’t you never forget, Jigga got this shit poppin’
Yow, crowd of people–go and mind yuh business
I’ll Bobby Shmurda anybody you heard of
Birth of a Nation, Nat Turner style
Too much su, su, su, su, su

Can’t you see it’s my ambition
I can’t take no threats, I got a set of twins
I pulled out the pot when we was outta options
Mek I tell you hunting season
[Verse 2: Jay Z]
Voice of the one pon gully banking
Cake and dumpling season

Jay-Z – Moonlight (4:44 Album)

Even when we win, we gon’ lose
She don’t got time to choose
‘Cause they always rakin’ in mo’

And y’all niggas is ‘posed to be trill?
We stuck in La La Land
I don’t post no threats on the Internet

Y’all fuck the same fuckin’ chicks
Bathing Ape maybe not a gorilla, huh?
Please don’t talk about guns
And my head is scratchin’
Glorified seat filler, huh?
[Verse 2]
We got the same fuckin’ moves
Givin’ information to the pork, that’s all spam
We sure we shoot ’em in my city though
We stuck in La La Land
And they run off with your masters
While we in Calabasas
We got the same fuckin’ moves
Doug ain’t this tight, so
That’s real talk when you behind on your taxes
[Chorus]

Yeah, got Lil Cos up here with me
Yeah, yeah
Stop walkin’ around like y’all made Thriller, huh?
We got the same fuckin’ watch
Fuck what we sellin’
I don’t know who is who
After all they done stole, for real?
[Intro]
I just pose a threat, blame Lenny S for that
I don’t be on the ‘Gram goin’ ham
Even when we win, we gon’ lose
She don’t got time to choose
We got the same fuckin’ flows
We got the same fuckin’ watch
Lucian is cool but Lucian don’t write
Nah, nah, nah, nah
That shit ain’t right
I’m just so fuckin’ confused
[Chorus]
Look, I know killers, you no killer, huh?
Fake Dracos all in the videos
I’m on the ch—’nough of this
Y’all stuck in La La Land
[Verse 1]
I don’t know who is who
‘Cause their grass is greener

‘Cause that shit is backwards
Y’all got the same fuckin’ flows
Fuck is we makin’?
I’m in the skrt with ya—yeah, right
We stuck in La La Land
I’m the skrt with ya—cool story
That you ain’t never gon’ use
Still? Y’all niggas still signin’ deals?
After what they done to our Lauryn Hill?
Nah, nah
And you pawned all your chains
And took it to Beverly Hills
Y’all always tell on y’all self

Jay-Z – Marcy Me (4:44 Album)

Must be in the air
Gave birth to my verbal imagination
Came through the bushes smellin’ like roses
The livest one representing BK to the fullest
When Lisa Bonet was Beyoncé of her day, I had divas, y’all
I ain’t gonna change, no
Back when ratchet was a ratchet and the vixen was a vixen
Marcy, Marcy me, just the way I am
Live from Bedford-Stuyvesant
Back when Rodman was a Piston
I need a trophy just for that
Chicken-heads be cluckin’

Y’all flirtin’ with death, I be winkin’ through the scope

Shout out to Nostrand Ave., Flushing Ave., Myrtle
Fat laces in your shoe I’m talkin’ bustin’ off the roof
When Denzel was blottin’ carpet, I’d pack a nine millimeter
I’m from Marcy houses, where the boys die by the thousand
"Lord, we know who we are
[Intro]
There’s room on the bandwagon, don’t abort
Plural fuck the Federal Bureau
Marcy me
Marcy me
Shout out to all the murderers turned murals
Yeah, we know not what we may be"
Old Brooklyn not this new shit, shift feel like a spoof
That’s poetry read a coca leaf from my past
Assume a virtue if you have not
[Verse 1]
Or better yet here’s a verse from Hamlet
Mike was losin’ to Isiah, but he soon would get his sixth one
Shout out to Big Poppa, Daddy Kane, heroes
When Slick Rick made "Mona Lisa"
Just the way I am always gonna be
Bastards duckin’ when Hov be buckin’
Sufi to the goofies, I could probably speak Farsi
Streets is my artery, the vein of my existence
I’m the Gotham City heartbeat
Pregnant pause, give you some second thoughts
Just the way I was raised
Yeah, that’s where it all started
Thus concludin’ my concerto; Marcy me
Back when Pam was on Martin
Hold a Uzi vertical, let the thing smoke
I started in lobbies now, probably with Saudis
[Verse 2]
[Outro: The-Dream]
Eu não canto do mundo, o meu tempo…)
All the County of Kings, may your ground stay fertile
Think I just popped up in this bitch like a fetus? Nah
Oh Marcy, Marcy me
Oh, can’t walk away, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know
And Jam Master Jay was alive I was mixin’
(Como as minhas [mãos?] tocando aquí
Cookin’ coke in the kitchen
So maybe I’m the one or maybe I’m crazy

Jay-Z – Legacy (4:44 Album)

My stake in Roc Nation should go to you
Whose daughter couldn’t escape the reach of the preacher’s hand
See how the universe works?
Legacy, Legacy, Legacy, Legacy

You see, my father, son of a preacher man
TIDAL, the champagne, D’USSÉ, I’d like to see
A nice peace-fund ideas from people who look like we
She might put poor kids through school
It takes my hurt and help me find more of myself
That charge of energy set all the Carters back
Legacy, Legacy, Legacy, Legacy
[Intro: Blue Ivy Carter]
She might start an institute
Someday I forgive him
Legacy, Legacy, Legacy, Legacy
[Chorus]
[Outro: Donny Hathaway]
Someday we’ll all be free
And I was runnin’ from him, He was givin’ me wisdom
My mom took her money, she bought me bonds
You run this hard just to stay in place
Keep up the pace
That was the sweetest thing of all time, uh

Keep up the pace, baby

It took all these years to get to zero in fact
Black excellency, baby, let ’em see
"Your seed, married his seed, married my seed"
That’s major, just like the Negro League

I’ve been listenin’ to Wu-Tang and niggas like
[Chorus]
Black excellence baby, you gon’ let ’em see

My parents ain’t have shit, so that ship started with me
We gon’ start a society within a society
‘Cause strangely our division led to multiple religions
[Verse 2]
My sisters, Hattie and Lou, the nephews, cousins and TT
Daddy, what’s a will?
Take those moneys and spread ‘cross families
That’s called the red queens race
Legacy, Legacy, Legacy, Legacy
Generational wealth, that’s the key
Black excellence, you gon’ let ’em see
That’s how we keep Carter money all in the family
[Bridge]
You run this hard just to stay in place

He was preachin’ Sundays, versus how he was livin’ Monday
Black excellency, baby, let ’em see
Day, someday, someday we’ll all
Eric, the rest to B for whatever she wants to do
[Verse 1]
There was a time America wouldn’t let us ball
Those times are now back, just now called Afro-tech
It’s a gift and a curse

I hated religion ’cause here was this Christian
I studied Muslim, Buddhist, and Christians
Leave a piece for your siblings to give to their children too
