    I mean…them horns nigga!

    Producer T-Minus laid that foundation but Cole sealed the deal.



    You good, T-Minus?

    Niggas been countin’ me out
    I’m countin’ my bullets, I’m loadin’ my clips
    I’m writin’ down names, I’m makin’ a list
    I’m checkin’ it twice and I’m gettin’ ’em hit
    The real ones been dyin’, 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 poppin’ 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 prayin’ I’d diss
    They act like two legends cannot coexist
    But I’d never beef with a nigga for nothin’
    If I smoke a rapper, it’s gon’ be legit
    It won’t be for clout, it won’t be for fame
    It won’t be ’cause my shit ain’t sellin’ the same
    It won’t be to sell you my latest lil’ sneakers
    It won’t be ’cause some nigga 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 thankin’ you now
    Was watchin’ you when you was pavin’ the ground
    I copied your cadence, I mirrored your style
    I studied the greats, I’m the greatest right now
    Fuck if you feel me, you ain’t got a choice
    Now I ain’t do no promo, still made all that noise
    This year gon’ be different, I set my intentions
    I promise to slap all that hate out your voice


    Niggas been countin’ me out
    I’m countin’ my bullets, I’m loadin’ my clips
    I’m writin’ down names, I’m makin’ a list
    I’m checkin’ it twice and I’m gettin’ ’em hit
    The real ones been dyin’, 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 somethin’ in my cup
    I’ve been wantin’ somethin’ I can feel
    Promise I am never lettin’ up
    Money in your palm don’t make you real
    Foot is on they neck, I got ’em stuck
    I’ma give ’em somethin’ they can feel
    If it ain’t ’bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
    Pistol in your 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 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


    I just poured somethin’ in my cup
    I’ve been wantin’ somethin’ I can feel
    Promise I am never lettin’ up
    Money in your palm don’t make you real
    Foot is on they neck, I got ’em stuck
    I’ma give ’em somethin’ they can feel
    If it ain’t ’bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
    Pistol in your hand don’t make you real


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

    J. Cole is definitely one of the new legends along with Kendrick, Nipsey, and Meek
