Land of the Snakes – J. Cole

[Verse 1: J. Cole]
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
Lord, know some hoes from the past like
“Damn Cole, wish I knew that you would be rich”
Well, should’ve asked
It’s funny how these niggas on some real “Be cool with me” shit
I bagged two bitches like it’s two of me bitch
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
Finally got my own bedroom in this bitch
No more sleeping in my brother’s room
Like man I might as well be sleeping in my mother’s room
Cause how I’m supposed to sneak hoes with my bro here?
Plus she gon’ find out I been rocking all this old gear
This is flow here, this is no fair
This is so pure, this is so clear
This is one breath, this is no air
Ain’t no editing I do the most here
I’m the President you the co-chair
You the player, yeah, I’m the coach here
Nigga I coast here
This weather got me set up on this West Coast yeah
Avoiding the snakes, AK’s, and coke yeah
Get my dick wet but I never let it soak there
Man I been thinkin’ bout movin’ out
What? Country boy in the city in New York nine years
Ran that shit like Diddy
Riding through South Side Queens like Fiddy

[Hook: J. Cole]
Nothing’s impossible
And all you lame niggas show me what not to do
I met a real bad bitch in the club tonight
She told me, “Watch the snakes cause they watching you”
I told her, “Aw baby don’t start! I ain’t looking for the way to your heart!”
She said, “You bout to miss church” while she riding me
I like my sundaes with a cherry on top
Make that ass drop (drop, drop)
Make that ass drop (drop, drop)
Make that ass drop (drop, drop)

[Verse 2: J. Cole]
Now if you only had one wish is it devious?
Cause you already know who your genie is
Ain’t get a cover, now your mag on my penis
Like damn he turned out to be a genius
Damn real shit nigga no Pixar
You niggas soft like Meagan Good’s lips are
My kicks hard, my whip hard
I came out the womb with my dick hard
Back when I was playing Stomp the Yard
It’d be a bunch of niggas up on campus talking hard
Don’t get exposed to these hoes boy knock it off
I seen your mama in a Benz when she drops you off
Damn now who more thorough than me?
I paint a picture of my pain for the world to see
Could paint a picture of the game but my girl would see
Gotta ask myself, “What mean the world to me?”

[Hook]

[Verse 3: J. Cole]
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
A little Fayettenam nigga out in Beverly Hills
That’s when I ran into this chick I went to college with
Yeah back when a nigga was on scholarship
Was in a rush but I still stopped to holla, shit
That’s the least I owed her cause see I tried to hit
On the first night, and nah I ain’t proud of it
I boned her in my dorm room and kicked her out of it
And I never called back, how thoughtfuless
Now I’m standing in the streets tryna politic with her
In her mind she calling me a misogynist nigga
On some Bobby Brown shit my prerogative, nigga is to hit and never commit
Now realizing when I hit she never forgets
So every time I ignore the telephone call
Saying I’ll hit her back knowing I’m never gon’ call
She was hurting, now she’s staring dead in my face she was smirking
Like, “Yeah I remember and nah you ain’t worth shit, nigga
You ain’t worth shit, nigga”

Rags To Riches (At The Beep) – J. Cole

[Ring]
Your call has been forwarded to an automated voice messaging system

Damn, broke is a bad joke but still I laugh though
Frontin’ trynna have hope, it’s sad though
I’m tired of being broke as shit
I’m seeing other niggas ball and I’m like 0 for 6
Ay man I just graduated, good old college degree
Shit, my niggas drug dealing seen more dollars than me
I know my calling, it’s in my blood to do this music thing
Won’t be that illest nigga that you never knew his name
I’m looking at these fake A&R’s like “you a lame-
That boy a genius and you ain’t even listen, man you insane”
But you’ll see though, just what the hell a nigga bout’ to be though
So give me one year then play this back like T-VO
Cause boy I’m fein’n blow I’m a mothafucking torpedo
The music’s in my blood so watch these niggas turn mosquitoes
Uh, I play the villain and the hero, some grow man shit
Feel like a god’dam kid, man I’m Pac and BIG
(What up?) “Up” is something that I can’t give
Won’t see me disappear like the old Ant Viv
Cause even on a slow jam I’m so damn sick
Man I even spread a virus to a program-quick
I gotta focus on my flow and get some doe man, shit
No dollars got me acting like I got no damn sense
But peace to my broham’s and my ex lady
Yea we’ve been complicating things with the sex lately
Maybe I’m being selfish-but naw I can’t help it
Cause girl we go back like a throwback Celtics-jersey
Regardless of where God lead us,
Just know that I was Martin and you was my Gina
Uh, but I’m through living in the past Lord
No more thinking rewind and more fast forward
Less rearview mirror and more dashboard
I’m visualizing cash and stamps on a passport
That CLS with a full tank of gas for it
Cop my momma a whip nigga he didn’t even ask for it
Wise enough to know that money can’t buy you happiness or loveers
But it’s gon get my momma out the struggle
Wise enough to know that money can’t buy you happiness or lovers
But it’s gon get my momma out the struggle
Said I’m wise enough to know that money can’t buy you happiness or lovers
But it’s gon get my momma out the struggle nigga

Bring Em In – J. Cole

I wasn’t looking for you
I wasn’t searching
I wasn’t creeping around
I wasn’t lurking
I wasn’t sleeping around
I wasn’t thirsting
But, I got a thang for you
I got a thang for you

[Verse 1:]
You on ya job, and it damn sure workin’
Say she ain’t a ho but she far from a virgin
When it’s time to cut, I’m somethin’ like a surgeon
I do my thang for you,
Hey baby girl you gotta trunk, I might put you in valet
Way you stretching make ya man think I put you in ballet
If I’m sliding through ya city I need you to dial me
And how much my niggas smoke reminded me of Friday
I can take you to DC introduce you to Wale
You can look all through my phone as long as you don’t call Jay
Is it cool to parlay, we can do this all day
Just me and you off in my room
We call this to the hard way? Hard way!

[Hook:]
I put it down
Any spot any city that I’m in
Let the bad girls know we run the town
So pick up that cellphone and
Tell a friend, to tell a friend
I put it down!

Any spot, any city that I’m in
Let the bad girls know we run the town
And my niggas blow trees like the wind
So tell a friend, to bring a friend
Bring em in [x4]
If they all bad
You can bring em in
We take it to the… it’s just you, me and them

[Verse 2:]
Now bring ya ass over here
A nigga tryna take you home like a souvenir
One in a million, girl you lookin’ like you knew Aaliyah
And ah, I got a thing for you, I got a thing for you
A stewardess yet you flew the Lear
Cause you fly as hell shawty walking through the air
Game cold like the toes on a polar bear
And ah, I do my thang for you
Now baby girl if looks can kill then you catching bodies
How I’m stretching you there’s no need to go to Pilates
When I’m sliding thru ya city meet me in the lobby
Then you put that thang up on me like you tryna rob me
Can I hit it in the morning? While you moaning probably
Got you sweating now you gettin’ wet as a tsunami
We can do this all day, treat it like a high way
But if I tell you get to stepping like you Pam and Tommy
Don’t mind me, I put it down!

[Verse 3:]
Did I meet you for a reason or for a season
Or either the night of ya life at the four seasons
Whisper to ya home girls ya love Cole world
Cause his flow thorough I give you a few more reasons
Not because his verse or cause I can buy purse
You know the type of shit that your man can only purchase on the first
And not because he faker than turf softer than Nerf football
I got his girl lip-gloss all on my girth
But cause I’m so cleaver better than who ever
The coldest nigga even when wearin’ like four sweaters
Well versed, well rehearsed the go getter
These broke niggas got good dressing and no lettuce (ahhhh)
You would think niggas would know better
It’s oh eleven, you would think niggas would flow better
I know you so fed up and so I had to blow and I ain’t talking
Coke header, I won’t let up

Breakdown – J. Cole

[Verse 1:]
Look, I just shed tears homie and now I ain’t too proud to admit it
Just seen my father for the first time in a minute
And when I say a minute I mean years man
Damn, a whale could have swam in them tears fam
Cause as I left them I reflected on my younger days
When it was just me and my brother and my mother played
Father, cause no other man bothered
Not even my biological, it never seemed logical
But I accepted it cause I ain’t know no better
Thought I was brighter than a Polo sweater
No pops was like Martin with no Coretta
So many things you could have told me
And saved me the trouble of lettin’ my mistakes show me
I feel like you barely know me
And that’s a shame cause our last name is the same
That blood type flowin’ through our veins is the same
My mama left you and maybe your anger’s to blame
But that’s no excuse, only you and God know the truth
And why you only call monthly, barely ever saw me
Spend some summers with you and played with my cousin Maury
Maybe I should be tellin’ you fuck you cause you selfish
But I want a father so bad, I can’t help it

I break down, I break down
Can’t help but break down
I break down

[Verse 2:]
I never thought I’d see my mama on that shit man
It’s fuckin’ with her body, now she sick damn
I wanted a big house with a white picket fence and a pool
Who would have ever thought that it would come to this, man?
Quicksand is what this life feel like
That shit these rappers kick is nothin’ like real life
You made a milli off of servin’ hard white, yeah right
My mama tell you what addicted to that pipe feel like
Stupid niggas, I heard the cops be shootin’ niggas
I swear to God, wish I could bullet proof my niggas
Can’t get no jobs, but they still recruitin’ niggas
We tryna stand tall when it gets to crucial niggas

READ  Get It - J. Cole

Break down! We break down, we break down, we break down

[Verse 3:]
Servin’ time, locked down
And she don’t want nobody to know, his daughter 25 pounds
By the time he get out, she gon’ be 4
Now will his girl stay down?
Ain’t no doubt, she love him yeah that’s fo sho
But temptation stays round
And if she strayed, how could he ever know?
Never know and so, she goes to the club on the weekend
A little freakin’, but them niggas holla
But she never speakin’, but tonight I see the devil creepin’
Cause she been lonely, she ain’t felt a man in 7 seasons
Damn! She do the best that she can
Her mama tellin’ her to find another man
She college educated with a felon boyfriend
That’s what she thinkin’ tonight
Maybe she’s right, but please

Stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don’t break down mama!
Please… stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don’t break down mama!
Don’t break down, don’t break down, don’t break down, don’t break down

Break, break down
Steady break me down
[repeat]
