You ain’t a man till you stop chasing your friends, my nigga
Think for yourself, make your own plans my nigga
I’ll be lying if I said I ain’t understand, my nigga
Cause who you gon’ follow when the leaders all get swallowed
Yeah, truly yours, J. Cole My mama coulda been a movie star You know like Judy Garland I went to St. Johns, I coulda went to Juliard Cause my beautiful mind mixed with my musical bond Deep as a funeral line, dawg, I get it from my mama I used to be embarrassed getting picked up in that Honda Thought my niggas might play me if they found out that my mama was a white lady So like gravy, had to cover that Plus my older brother black but he look white In an all black school, picture what that look like No wonder he was under-achieving, not believing in himself Coming home, just be keeping to himself Looking back through the silence, he was screaming out for help Maybe this verse can find the words to get the demons out himself So yeah, I’m exercising Right now my record climbing, I’m sort of a stair master Niggas got there faster, I took the long route, I never been a scared rapper Boy this ain’t Fear Factor, they tell me can you hear the wrath spilling out these paragraphs Made the world clear a path Bet I’ll be on top from now till the hereafter I’m special, mama told me I was special Mama told me I was special You know I love her for that That’s right, I’m special

Puppy eyes when I go, sayin’ “stay with me” Aw, girl, you bad as hell and yet I’d love to But see I got a girl I’m really makin’ love to Therefore I’m feelin’ a lot more guilty when I rub you That’s why I skip all of that kissin’ when I fuck you Flush the condom down the toilet then I skate I had you, but you can’t have me, I never stay

That’s why I skip all of that kissin when I fuck you. Flush the condom down the toilet then I skate
