T.I. - Big Ol' Drip

Текст песни: Big Ol' Drip

[Intro: T.I.]
Still hustlin' at five in the mornin'
These retro Jordan's ain't never walked a mile
And I'm knowin' no matter what they said, heavy the head
Who said shit would be simple?
To get rich and stay out the trunks of Lincoln Continental
Remember back to get by applyin' fundamental
In these streets you either eat or become dinner
Ain't shit to win when you already got it all
But go from havin' no options to buyin' mansions, Versace and shit

[Chorus: Watch the Duck]
You don't know the risk if you ain't carried the weight
If you ain't never been down the road that wasn't already paved
Some shit I don't remember, And some I'll never forget
Ain't nobody give me nothin', ain't nobody tell me shit
Big ol' drip

[Verse 1: T.I.]
Okay, now all did our thang
Now, can't nobody tell me a bitch ass thang
'Cause there weren't nobody around when it was me and the squad
Trappin' in the shadows, sellin' crack in the dark
Push boys, I wonder sometimes it didn't matter to God
That I didn't have no hot water and my stomach would growlin'
Learned to think outside the box watchin' niggas around me
And bein' stupid, that'll have ya ass in the county
And bein' dumb'll get ya shot, boy
Pay close attention when niggas run in your spot, ready for you to die
That's why you better have your head on a swivel and your antennas up
Fucked around, get killed by a police the way you reachin', bruh
When the odds stacked up against you, if nothin' eventually ain't gained
Gotta do more than sit and complain
Every album I made was a product of pain
You really think you ain't gon' change comin' far as I came? Come on

[Chorus: Watch the Duck]
You don't know the risk if you ain't carried the weight
If you ain't never been down the road that wasn't already paved
Some shit I don't remember, and some I'll never forget
Ain't nobody give me nothin', ain't nobody tell me shit
Big ol' drip

[Verse 2: T.I.]
Dangerous lifestyle from jumpin' the turnstile
Refused to pipe down, the shit we would burn down
Distress is everywhere, some shit you just gotta turn down
And ain't no freebies in this shit, you get what you earned now
Yeah, you live and you learn but you reap what you sew
And your intention ain't what you'll be held accountable for
It's your actions, it don't matter what you do for yourself
If every time somebody call on you and you ain't no help
That ain't no king shit
All that stuff you buyin', it don't mean shit
On some boost your self-esteem shit 'cause you ain't seen shit
Callin' me an activist, stumbled on it by accident
You can see I'm passionate but not a politician though
On IG I'm killin' that fashion shit, I be drippin' with
Raf Simons trench coat, cashmere turtleneck
How did I get three piece pinstripe with the collar bar
Rose gold cuff link, same as the Audemar?

[Break: T.I.]
Hey, back against the wall, would you risk it all?
I figure if I could get me some, I could get it all
Started with a bankroll small as a tennis ball
Now in my city I'm big as Pac and Biggie Smalls
God with me, whom shall I fear
There no more beggin' folk for shit we oughta get ourselves, and
Just so I'm clear, what it took to get here, you got no idea
For real

[Chorus: Watch the Duck]
You don't know the risk if you ain't carried the weight
If you ain't never been down the road that wasn't already paved
Some shit I don't remember, and some I'll never forget
Ain't nobody give me nothin', ain't nobody tell me shit
