    (You good T-Minus?)

    Niggas been counting me out
    I’m counting my bullets, I’m loading my clips
    I’m writing down names, I’m making a list
    I’m checking it twice, and I’m getting them hit
    The real ones been dying, the fake ones is lit
    The game is off balance, I’m back on my shit
    The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
    But that’s how I like it
    You all on my dick

    I’m all in my bag
    This hard as it get, I do not snort powder
    I might take a sip
    I might hit the blunt, but I’m liable to trip
    I ain’t popping no pill but you do as you wish
    I roll with some fiends, I love em to death
    I got a few mil but not all of them rich
    What good is the bread if my niggas is broke
    What good is first class if my niggas can’t sit

    That’s my next mission, that’s why I can’t quit
    Just like Lebron, get my niggas more chips
    Just put the Rollie right back on my wrist
    This watch came from Drizzy, he gave me a gift
    Back when the rap game was praying I’d diss
    They act like two legends cannot coexist
    But I’d never beef with a nigga for nothing
    If I smoke a rapper it’s gone be legit
    It won’t be for clout
    It won’t be for fame
    It won’t be cause my shit ain’t selling the same
    It won’t be to sell you my latest lil sneakers
    It won’t be cause some niggas slid in my lane
    Everything grows, it’s destined to change
    I love you lil niggas, I’m glad that you came
    I hope that you scrape every dollar you can
    I hope you know money won’t erase the pain

    To the OGs, I’m thanking you now
    Was watching you when you was paving the ground
    I copied yo cadence, I mirrored yo style
    I studied the greats, I’m the greatest right now
    Fuck if you feel me, you ain’t gotta choice
    I ain’t do no promo, still made all that noise
    This year gone be different, I set my intentions
    I promise to slap all that hate out your voice

    Niggas been counting me out
    I’m counting my bullets, I’m loading my clips
    I’m writing down names, I’m making a list
    I’m checking it twice, and I’m getting them hit
    The real ones been dying, the fake ones is lit
    The game is off balance, I’m back on my shit
    The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
    But that’s how I like it
    You all on my dick

    I just poured something in my cup
    I been wanting something I can feel
    Promise I am never letting up
    Money in your palm don’t make you real

    Foot is on they neck, I got them stuck
    Imma give them something they can feel
    If it ain’t bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
    Pistol in yo hand don’t make you real

    I’m dead in the middle of two generations
    I’m little bro and big bro all at once
    Just left the lab with young 21 Savage
    I’m bout to go and meet Jigga for lunch
    Had a long talk with the young nigga Kodak
    Reminded me of young niggas from Ville
    Straight out the projects, no faking just honest
    I wish that he had more guidance forreal
    Too many niggas in cycle of jail
    Spending they birthdays inside of a cell
    We coming from a long blood line of trauma
    We raised by our mamas, Lord we gotta heal
    We hurting our sisters, the babies as well
    We killing our brothers, they poisoned the well
    Distorted self image, we set up to fail
    Imma make sure that the real gon’ prevail, nigga

    I just poured something in my cup
    I been wanting something I can feel
    Promise I am never letting up
    Money in your palm don’t make you real

    Foot is on they neck, I got them stuck
    Imma give them something they can feel
    If it ain’t bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
    Pistol in yo hand don’t make you real

    Money in your palm don’t make you real
    Pistol in yo hand don’t make you real
    Money in your palm don’t make you real

                                                  [Verse 2]
                                                  I'm dead in the middle of two generations
                                                  I'm little bro and big bro all at once
                                                  Just left the lab with young 21 Savage
                                                  I'm 'bout to go and meet Jigga for lunch
                                                  Had a long talk with the young nigga Kodak
                                                  Reminded me of young niggas from 'Ville
                                                  Straight out the projects, no fakin', just honest
                                                  I wish that he had more guidance, for real
                                                  Too many niggas in cycle of jail
                                                  Spending they birthdays inside of a cell
                                                  We coming from a long bloodline of trauma
                                                  We raised by our mamas, Lord we gotta heal
                                                  We hurting our sisters, the babies as well
                                                  We killing our brothers, they poisoned the well
                                                  Distorted self image, we set up to fail
                                                  I'ma make sure that the real gon' prevail, nigga
