lyrics

Hook:

I be trying to get to it in every single way
Trying to get a step ahead, trying to elevate 
I be out here getting paid, trying to get us straight
Watch the time and the money because neither of them wait
Shit I nearly caught a case out here, get it beat
I know she would've been waiting on me to get free
I know what they want, I got what they need
Trying to get it for all of us before the day I leave

Verse 1:

Every time I see you is like the first time I meet you
But the first time I greeted you was the last because you deceitful
I got heat from turning heel from people I was supposed to feel
They weren’t feeling me the same so I assumed they know the deal
So I bounced on them
Grabbed the waist line and put the three count on them
Laid the bass line on the beats and then put the bounce on them
Couldn’t even vouch for them, top foreign what I be in
Taking more risks for opportunities with bigger cheques
Never take a rest, I been at it for a minute
Only had the coupe a minute now she getting in it
Remember when I had to steer my mother's whip
And dreamt of getting chips, learnt the business
Now it's showing in numbers, they heard the kid
I had to skip a couple dates had to dead it
Full speed 99 unleaded
You get props off diamonds you rented
I get my props off the rhymes I invented
Because I spoke my mind and I meant it
They say it’ll cost my life but I already spent it, for real

Hook:

I be trying to get to it in every single way
Trying to get a step ahead, trying to elevate 
I be out here getting paid, trying to get us straight
Watch the time and the money because neither of them wait
Shit I nearly caught a case out here, get it beat
I know she would've been waiting on me to get free
I know what they want, I got what they need
Trying to get it for all of us before the day I leave

Verse 2:

I be trying pull up at the dealership
Also trying to find some inner peace and shit
Nah I can't lease no shit, I got to cop it
Shit, you get exposed for saying you plotting
Drive as if the clock up on the dash not stopping
So they can't clock him
Pieces of advice for what you want
I probably already got them, it's all experience
I had to stay down five years straight
To set me up and get me on my way
Young Micko never be playing
That's for real

Hook:

I be trying to get to it in every single way
Trying to get a step ahead, trying to elevate 
I be out here getting paid, trying to get us straight
Watch the time and the money because neither of them wait
Shit I nearly caught a case out here, get it beat
I know she would've been waiting on me to get free
I know what they want, I got what they need
Trying to get it for all of us before the day I leave

Verse 3:

Before the day I leave?
Trying to leave something bigger than me
That’s why I’m on my job, every day of every week
Why they all need a piece?
I took the risk, from that they wanna eat
If you been down since 2013, it’s cool
If not ask you to leave
Stay by your side I’m never leaving that
Stay down to come up, know I believe in that
No plan B needed you a G if you agree with that
Crafted a vision and then achieve the shit I see with that
For real

Hook:

I be trying to get to it in every single way
Trying to get a step ahead, trying to elevate 
I be out here getting paid, trying to get us straight
Watch the time and the money because neither of them wait
Shit I nearly caught a case out here, get it beat
I know she would've been waiting on me to get free
I know what they want, I got what they need
Trying to get it for all of us before the day I leave
