Dollar and a Dream II - J. Cole

Hey, hey, yea, yea,
Got a dolla and a dream
Yea
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
Yea
I got a dolla and a dream, hey
[clears throat]

Ay, I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
N_ggas hatin' but I love them even though they trynna scheme
But I'm past that, a n_ggas stock is raising like the Nastec
They same I'm the future but yet I'm giving n_ggas flashbacks
Of better days, when you ain't have to settle for whatever played
I represent the struggle n_gga I say what they never say
Whenever they, spit that bullsh_t they spittin,
This that pool pit I'm hittin n_ggas with the gospel
Hostile with them hoes, I got a dolla in my pocket, plus a dream
Yea you laughing my n_gga but everything ain't what it seems
What it means to know your momma or your father on that pipe
On that hard white, I'll tell you what them scars like
I'm speaking through these bars like a n_gga in the jail
Tired of sifting through my mails I feel like Cartwright, bills
Forreal, a n_gga I'll
Just let me do the talking men I know how n_ggas feel

I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems

Yeah
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
Every lady ain't no hoe, and every b_tch ya'll ain't no queen
Every n_gga ain't no dog, and every n_gga ain't no king
Sh_t be happening for a reason, everything is everything
Every n_gga can't dunk, so white man can jump
They shooting n_ggas fo' they even tell em put their hands up!

Crooked cops, got a n_gga scared to drive
Probably thinking that I'm slanging man I see it in their eyes
But inside of my pocket is a dolla plus a dream
Yea you swear your girl is faithful everything ain't what it seems
See I seen how she glance and look away like she want it
I ain't saying I'm a f_ck her but I could if I wanted
Know it hurts that she flirts with a n_gga this is worst
I bet if I was to hit it man, I wouldn't be the first
This is church, this is gospel
Spit it like I get from the Bible, for your survival

I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream, real n_ggas on my team
Everything ain't what it seems
I got a dolla and a dream
Yeah I got a dolla and a dream

Check it
Ay Salle, I know I ain't been answering your calls,
But sh_t, let me explain-
It's because times been hard, been runnin around trynna find a job
I hear my phone ringing in the morning, 9 o'clock
And it's you, can't even front I press ignore
I still got cha letters laying in my dresser draw
You telling me about all the things you did for me
When I was broke, you sent me doe and that was big for me
See you was there every year when I needed you,
And you were so quick to give I had to be with you
Remember when I used to call you on your phone line
I knew it was official when my momma cosigned
But in no time, a n_gga graduated
I hit the real world, baby girl I'm sad to say it
But I was using you, you gave a n_gga major stacks
And I know one day in my heart one day that I'm gon pay you back"
I got a dolla and a dream
Everything ain't what it seems
