So I’m the bad guy now I hear, because I don’t go with the flow
Don’t ever go with the flow, be the flow
And I don’t need no middle man to talk to my n*ggas
I understand if you don’t understand, I figure I’m Jigga
That’s where we differ
I take what’s mine, you accept what they give you, I get you
I don’t take no checks I take my respect
Pharrell even told me go with the safest bet
Jimmy Iovine offered a safety net
Google dangled around a crazy check
I feel like Youtube is the biggest culprit
Them n*ggas pay you a tenth of what you supposed to get
You know n*ggas die for equal pay right?
You know when I work I ain't your slave right?
You know I ain't shucking and jiving and high fiving
You know this ain't back in the days right?
But I can't tell, how the way they killed Freddie Gray right
Shot down Mike Brown how they did Tray right?
Let them continue choking n*ggas
We gonna turn style, I ain't your token n*gga
You know I came in this game independent right?
TIDAL, my own label, same difference
Oh n*ggas is skeptical when it's their own sh*t
You bought nine iPhones and Steve Jobs is rich
Phil Knight worth trillions you still bought those kicks
Spotify is nine billion they ain't say sh*t
Lucy you got some 'splaining to do
The only one they hating on look the same as you
That's cool, I know they trying to bamboozle you
Spending millions on media trying to confuse you
I had to talk to myself, Hov you used to it
It's politics as usual
