[Verse 1: Jay-Z] Me and destiny got a date Martin had a dream Hov gotta team My chain already heavy Don't let me get a ring Parades down Flatbush Confetti on my fur Turn right on Red Hook Niggas heavy on the curve See most of my niggas died early twenties or late teens I'm just trying to come from under the thumb of this regime 1% of a billion is more then niggas even seen Still they wanna act like it's an everyday thing Clean...

[Verse 2: Jay-Z] High Yellow sky dweller and the rose gold Legend of the summer in the Rose Bowl Came thru Pasadena in the low low Just to show respect to the chulos Feel like a stranger in my own land Got me feeling like Brody in Homeland I just want my shot to show my genius Standing on the top hold my penis America tried to emasculate the greats Murder Malcolm Gave Cassius the shakes Wait, tell them rumble young man rumble Try to dim your lights tell you be humble You know I'm gon shine like a trillion watts You know I'm as trill as Michael Jackson socks Send a light to Compton and the hundred blocks Lil bastard boy Basking on top
[Hook] Fuck up this world 2x
[Verse 3: Jay-Z] Sipping D'USSE boy this ain't your daddy yak He in a Cadillac Me I'm in the Maybach This ain't grey sweat suits and white tube socks This is black leather pants and a pair of stance Socks is my synopsis is clear Got stripclubs feeling like Oxford I swear, Teacher teacher I trying to unteach ya All the shit they taught y'all They got you all in the bleachers When you front row at the Knicks game Those the Spike Lees You front row every where you in the H.O.V.s Jordan 1s and dungarees And that's just the half of my warpath Make a million another million let my niggas make a million Till we all check a billion Shit it's just the way I'm feeling We have yet to see a ceiling We just top what we top Cause the bars don't struggle And the struggle don't stop
