    I grew up on Old English, that’s that malt liquor (aha)
    Never smoked a Backwood, it was all Swishers (uh-uh)
    Before I pulled a fake ID out on a bartender

    Roasting, talking shit, we mobbing, I just got my mama’s whip (Hell yeah)
    We blow dank out that window
    Right with your tape up, it’s garbage
    I used to roll up a spliff, and I mixed the weed with the Parliament, ayy (oh shit)

    Taking my time, working it out
    Counting the coin, breaking my back (yeah)
    All in my loins, all on my nerves
    Can’t get a break, but that’s my snack
    Call me Almond Joy, mama’s boy
    Can’t afford none of what you ordered
    Shit, I’m hardly on, not quite broke
    Off the wall but on the boarder
    Pushing pen to the paper for peso
    They wanna leggo
    Close construction, no room for the huevos (yeah yeah)
    You gotta love it
    That’s Benny, he like Montego, he save you like the gecko
    He not gon’ pay the debt ’til you ice, get OG Maco
    Boy so wonderful
    Them cheap thrills, they come and they go, yeah

    They don’t want no one to know long as you comfortable, yeah

    Got some mango Hi-Chews, a bag of chips
    Rollin’ ’round the city and we hide behind the tints
    Out the Benz-o, got the Swisher out the window, then we dip
    Corner store, that’s all (Gemini)
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
    The courage to change the things I can
    And the wisdom to know the difference
