J. Cole - p r i d e . i s . t h e . d e v i l lyrics

(feat. Lil Baby) [J. Cole:] Uh Pride is the Devil Think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil It left so many R.I.P. Pride is the Devil Think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil, yeah, uh Terrified, paranoid, I'll put you over everything to fill the void And when you're gone, will I have anything or will I be destroyed? Uh Terrified, paranoid, I'll put you over everything to fill the void And when you're gone, will I have anything or will I be destroyed? Yeah Bright lights pass me in the city, it's emergency I'm thankful 'cause I made it past my thirties, no one murdered me Still remember vividly the ni**a that pulled a gun on me I'm petrified, but moving like I got no sense of urgency Pride make a ni**a act way harder than he really be Pride hide the shame when city cut off all utilities Pride hide the pain of growing up inhaling poverty Pride make a ni**a feel the way that you would follow me Make a ni**a flash a thousand like he hit the lottery Make a baby mama make sh*t harder than it gotta be Make you have to take the b*tch to court to see your prodigy Make you have to use your last resort and pull a robbery Pride be the reason for the family dichotomy Got uncles and some aunties that's too proud to give apologies Slowly realizing what the root of all my problems be It got me feeling different when somebody say they proud of me Pride is the Devil, uh I think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil, uh It left so many R.I.P. Pride is the Devil I think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil, uh, yeah Terrified, paranoid, I'll put you over everything to fill the void And when you're gone, will I have anything or will I be destroyed? Uh Terrified, paranoid, I'll put you over everything to fill the void And when you're gone, will I have anything or will I be destroyed? Yeah Too much money to count, what's the amount? Check never bounce I gotta pay a ni**a to add it up Then pay somebody to make sure whatever amount he say he can back it up Got racks on racks, I'm rackin' up, stackin' up You're reachin', I'm actin' up [Lil Baby:] Break it down, weigh it up, now bag it up Making five a month, that's regular ni**a playing with us, that's a negative Go back to start, that's never I'm a boss, my closet leather Ain't no off-days on my schedule Long as I live, we live forever Told my twin this sh*t get better These ni**as done slipped, let me ahead 'em Got my feet up, I paid silly bands to have sex on the jet I don't need 'em, that sh*t in the past, I'm feelin' like what's next Got my speed up, foot all on the gas, this not a C8 'Vette I can beat 'em, I believe in me, just tell me what's the bet All my pride gone, had to lose it all then I got rich I own five homes, glad some of this sh*t starting to make sense I'm staying hella focused and I can't forget the bigger picture I can't even hold you, I didn't have sh*t, I won't forget it Will I be destroyed? Come to me with everything, it's starting to get annoying I'm addicted to promethazine, it's crazy, yeah, I know it All this money coming in, it drive me crazy not to show it I'll be crazy if I blow it [J. Cole:] Pride is the Devil, uh I think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil, uh And it left so many R.I.P. Pride is the Devil I think it got a hold on me Pride is the Devil, uh
