LYRICS
VERSE 1
I’m the nigga came up cold 
All the shit they must atone
Let my enemies yell at me, hobby for the young bro 
It’s a tragedy when someone black as me get gold 
Time to slaughter, Street Fighter fist, that’s Nintendo 
Told my alma mater gotta send me money, Venmo 
Put us on map, don’t sleep siesta, man, blow
Jack won’t be no nigga serenading with a banjo 
Real reckless dude with a crew, carry ammo
 
Thought predicting winning would be something so taboo
But now I’m monkeying around with my brothers, baboons
Atlanta in Hollywood, it’s on schedule 
Chef in the bank, been eatin, check my dental
Plenty sugar, suite life, kicked it in the pent, ho 
My sheets all green, they don’t knit me a bando 
And a nice sweater, too fit, seen levels
Floating here, shining, I need me a drum roll
CHORUS
I’m too raw raw raw, I’m a villain, I’m a don 
Mask and cape, somebody ring the alarm
Wild boy boy boy, can’t tame me, nah
Started that flame, somebody ring the alarm
VERSE 2
I’m the nigga, hit em quick, right hook, threw the fist,
All the leeches swimming with me getting no benefit 
In the dirty pond, fake homies won’t ever stick 
Hang with real players, my gamers control this shit
Did it for the Internet, choke a youngin by his neck
Hoping some bystanders lookin and filmin  it 
Another Atlanta nigga dead, killed by his best friend 
Said he changed on em, didn’t text back or DM
I’m the nigga represent, I’m your mans till the end
Raise up my kinfolk, take over, that’s the plan 
On a mission, 100 grand, sickness showing symptoms man
Rather be hurting than healthy and not a champ
Nigga I done  been the man, my pillow talk to the bands
Sleep real good when there’s dinner ready for my fam 
I ain’t fucking comfortable, running out, take a stand
Started that fire, I’m a hoodlum in gym pants
CHORUS
VERSE 3
Stunt with all the things you got 
Ain’t gon put em in a box 
You ain’t never gon stop
Raise some funds, cop the stocks
Do it til they know your name on the block 
Til you respected, claim your right, you the king of the lot 
I’m Afro Caesar, mean I don’t play with you guys 
No lames in my chariot, no snakes in my ride 
Cruising for days tryna find me the pot 
Of gold, when I do imma feel like…
CHORUS
