Rich Niggaz - J. Cole

[Intro:]
Ey yo, ey yo, ey yo uh, ey yo uh
Ey yo, ey yo, ey yo uh
Yeah

[Verse 1:]
I hate rich n_ggas goddammit
Cause I ain't never had a lot dammit
Who you had to kill, who you had to rob
Who you had to f_ck just to make it to the top dammit.
Or maybe that's daddy money, escalator no ladder money
Escalating new caddy money
Worst fear going broke cause I'm bad with money.
Crookest smile n_gga momma never had the money damn
I ain't trippin' a n_gga Jordan I ain't Pippen yeah
Up the steps I ain't slippin'
Tears blood sweat I ain't crippled
Here's a song you can sing along with when you down
On some let you know you ain't alone sh_t
When your momma ain't at home cause she got a second job
Delivering pizzas, you think she out there getting robbed
Please God watch her I know how n_ggas do
Half cracker but a n_gga too.
Talking all that sh_t 'bout your step-pops
How he was a dog now look at you
I ain't bad as that n_gga, plus dawg I'm a grown man now
I ain't mad at that n_gga
But if a plane crashed and only it killed his lame ass
I'd be glad as that n_gga
Did Kay dirty now it's back to broke
Refund check she used that to float.
Momma gets depressed falls in love with the next maniac
On crack used that to cope.
Make a n_gga smoke a whole sack of dope
Writing rhymes tryna bring back the hope
Try to ride the storm out and crash the boat
Could have drowned but I grabbed the rope

And there go you, and there go you, and there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
And there go you, and there go you, and there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
Said,

[Hook: x2]
You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul and uh
How much for your soul and uh

[Verse 2:]
I hate rich n_ggas goddammit
Cause I ain't never had a lot dammit
N_ggas can't front on the flows you got
But every f_cking verse how much dough you got
Homie, don't quit now, hear my sh_t and try to switch now.
Know you felt the sh_t just now, know you felt the sh_t just now
Ain't it more to you? Don't it ever get boring to you?
I realize deep down you a coward getting high off of power
F_ck it, more to you.
So I threw you and it made me ashamed that I played the game
Not for more money like Damon Wayons
Wanted the respect but it came with fame
I just wanted love but this ain't the same
I took a train down memory lane and watched little Jermaine do his thang before he made a name
It's like Sony signed Basquiat
He gave it all he got, now the n_gga don't paint the same.
I guess he can't complain
All the money that be raining in
Spend a hundred thou for the chain again
Thinking old school n_ggas like Dana Dane
Probably kill for another claim to fame
My brain the same, yeah n_gga at least he ain't insane.
At least he ain't insane.
You ain't crazy motherf_cker you just afraid of change.
That's new, maybe that's true
But listen here, I got a bigger fear
Of one day that I become you.
And I become lost and I become heartless
And numb from all the Menages
Just one b_tch don't feel the same no more
And Henny don't really kill the pain no more
Now I'm Cobain with a shotgun aimed at my brain cause I can't maintain no more.
Tad bit extreme I know.
Money can't save your soul.

But there go you, there go you, there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
And there go you, and there go you, and there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew

[Hook: x2]
You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul and uh
How much for your soul and uh
