Cole:] My life is all I have My rhymes, my pen, my pad And I done made it out the struggle, don't judge me What you sayin' now won't budge me 'Cause where I come from (Come from), so often (So often) People you grow up with layin' in a coffin But I done made it through the pain and strife It's my time now, my world, my life, my life [21 Savage:] Say what? The stuff that I've seen got me traumatized I let the K go when Johnny died Swangin' that muhfu*ka' side to side We don't participate, ain't with that squashin' sh*t, all we believe in is homicide I got a good heart, so I send teddy bears every time we make they mommas cry I pray that my past ain't ahead of me (21) When I'm in love, I love heavily (On God) If you betray me, you dead to me (21) I disrespect you respectfully (Straight up) I got some partners who left this Earth Maybe the pain made a better me (On God) Just know that they secrets is kept with them (On God) I feel like the streets is in debt with me (Straight up) I gave my heart away to all the dawg hoes 'cause that's who accepted me (21) I blame my pops for that sh*t 'cause if he didn't fail, he could've corrected me (21) Give all the props to my momma 'cause no matter what, she always protected me (On God) I promise you, it ain't no checkin' me (On God) Jump in the water, get wet with me (Straight up, 21, 21) You want my money or wanna have sex with me? Can't let the opps or the law get the best of me I get to answerin', you get to textin' me I see chicken, you ni**as is breast to me Planted a seed but it ain't a sesame Can't let you ni**as or b*tches grow next to me [Morray & J. Cole:] My life is all I have My rhymes, my pen, my pad And I done made it out the struggle, don't judge me What you sayin' now won't budge me 'Cause where I come from (Come from), so often (So often) People you grow up with layin' in a coffin But I done made it through the pain and strife It's my time now, my world, my life, my life
