lyrics

Verse 1:

Please don’t confuse me with these other dudes
they want the rhythm and the moves but they don’t want the blues
I only schmooze with the top tier rhymin' crews
who regulate and communicate through nonverbal cues
can tell the real from right off the rip
from the way they move they hands and they stance when they spit
these other rappers snitch on themselves when they talk
but a fish with his mouth closed don’t ever get caught, so
move in silence do ya dirt and disconnect
talkin bout it only make it worse, 'Streisand Effect'
got a lot of years in this I’m a man of respect
this a cash only business please don’t hand a check
can’t do nothin with that don’t try to connect us
I got a show in Paris France, they got a show in Paris Texas
big difference, my schedule hectic, you’ll get neglected
nobody busier than a person uninterested
Terrence highly requested my time is more sought
they Black is more Kodak, mine is more Thought
full price is a fools price with everything you bought
when you great it's just naturally innate it can’t be taught

Hook:

First they gonna ignore you
then they laugh at you
then they wanna fight you
then you gonna win!
In the beginning they gone be all resistant
then they gone realize you the most consistent
just when they think that you won’t dog show up
stay ready, go time, man show up
first they ignore you
then they laugh at you
then they wanna fight you
but then you gonna win!


Verse 2:

If your beat don’t knock like this I can’t listen to it
might have to pour me a shot just to get me through it
everybody rap now, 'me too' movement
I’m talkin Clipse and Pharrell before the 'Happy' music
if they swimming in money I watch'em drown
then reinvest they dividends and let'em compound
better get some etiquette you tryna stick around
stand up!
never shake a man hand sitting down
It’s a code, you ain’t volunteer you was voluntold
no say in it, freestyle ain’t no pay in it
time is worth way more than money don’t play with it
cause you can’t get it back when it’s gone no saving it
had alotta cats tell me T you inspire me
when I stop doin it I prolly be a retiree
content stay forever fresh ain’t no expiry
this rhyming just another way of me keeping a diary
shorty had the make up with the smoky eye fiery
throw you off ya game get in ya head like psychiatry
I ain't interested I ain’t making no inquiry
nose to the grind I’m fully focused entirely


Hook:

First they gonna ignore you
then they laugh at you
then they wanna fight you
then you gonna win!
In the beginning they gone be all resistant
then they gone realize you the most consistent
just when they think that you won’t dog show up
stay ready, go time, man show up
first they ignore you
then they laugh at you
then they wanna fight you
but then you gonna win!
