Violent Crimes

“Father forgive me, I’m scared of the karma / ‘Cause now I see women as somethin’ to nurture / Not somethin’ to conquer / I hope she like Nicki, I’ll make her a monster / Not havin’ menages / I’m just being silly.”

“I’ll beat his ass, pray I beat the charges / No daddy don’t play, not when it come to they daughters / Don’t do no yoga, don’t do pilates / Just play piano and stick to karate / I pray your body’s draped more like mine and not like your mommy’s.”

Wouldn’t Leave

“I said, ‘Slavery a choice.’ They say, ‘How, Ye?’ / Just imagine if they caught me on a wild day / Now I’m on fifty blogs gettin’ fifty calls/My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ’bout to lose it all!’ / Had to calm her down ’cause she couldn’t breathe / Told her she could leave me now / But she wouldn’t leave.”

“For every damn female that stuck with they dude / Through the best times, through the worst times / This for you.”

All Mine

“If I pull up with a Kerry Washington/That’s gon’ be an enormous scandal/I could have Naomi Campbell/And still might want me a Stormy Daniels/Sometimes, you gotta back to boss up/I call that taking Corey Gambles/Find yourself up in the food court/You might have to enjoy your sample/All these thots on Christian Mingle/Almost what got Tristan single.”

“If you don’t ball like him or Kobe/Guarantee that bitch gonna leave you/Hey, time is extremely valuable/And I prefer to waste it/On girls that’s basic/That’s just some Ye shit.”


“Russell Simmons wanna pray for me too / I’ma pray for him ’cause he got #MeToo’d / Thinkin’ what if that happened to me too / Then I’m on E! News.”

“Uh, told my wife I’ve never seen her After I hit it, bye Felicia, that’s the way that I’ma leave it.”

“That’s my bipolar shit, n–ga what? That’s my superpower, n–ga ain’t no disability I’m a superhero! I’m a superhero!”

I Thought About Killing You”

“Today I seriously thought about killing you / I contemplated, premeditated murder / And I think about killing myself, and I love myself way more than I love you, so… You’d only care about somebody you love. The most beautiful thoughts are always beside the darkest … Sometimes I think really bad things. Really, really bad things. I love myself way more than I love you. And I think about killing myself. So best believe, I thought about killing you today.”
