“You ain’t made it ’til you got stylists go out and shop for you/ TMZ pull up, spit on the camera like Pac would do/ Hope you ni**as caught the right angle, hypotenuse/ I’m in DR on a big yacht with the prostitutes/ Boy, stop, I’m just living out my real truth/ Hundreds real blue, strips on ’em still new/ F**ked up Dover Street, I’m drippin’ like mildew/ They say he don’t do visit the hood, ni**a, I still do,” Cordae rhymes.
