Listen to song while you read lyrics!

Are you working?
What kind of work do you do?
Uh, boy, what is it you want to do
When you grow up?

Aiyyo, I’m gonna be on ti-dop, that’s all my eyes can see
Victory is mine, yeah, surprisingly
I’ve been laying, waiting for your next mistake
I put in work, and watch my status escalate

Now, I’ma start collectin’ props, connectin’ plots
Networkin’ like a conference, ’cause the nonsense is yet to stop
Jakes shake me down, haters wanna take me down
Break me down, clap all they heard was the sound

Yo, I scoped it out, I took your weak dream and choked it out
Your bitch don’t really got no ass, she just poked it out
On the deelow, I’m sayin’, you versus me though?
We can do this shit right here, in front of your people

See time is money kid, and BS walks
And to me, it’s funny kid when you meet heads talk
I see feds stalk, they wanna dig up the dirt
Son is it me they hawk, ’cause I be puttin’ in work son?

Aiyyo, I’m gonna be on ti-dop, that’s all my eyes can see
Victory is mine, yeah, surprisingly
I’ve been laying, waiting for your next mistake
I put in work, and watch my status escalate

You cornballs get stonewalled, blackballed, I own y’all
The veteran runnin’ my plan I’m the better man
Crazy raw, doin’ my job like the mob
Blazin y’all, and disappearin’ in the fog

Or a mist, and chicks can’t resist what I kick
They be beggin’ for attention or some more of the dillznick
Word up baby, someone may have to get hurt up, baby
Shit is mad shady, but I got to get the gravy

Platinum respect like the force of a tech
Keep you hittin’ the deck, feelin’ heat in your chest
Bangin’ your thoughts with the hot onslaught
A kid got shot on the spot for goin’ where he should not

Viciously, I make history, instantly
Those other lame ass loser ass niggaz, they can’t fuck with me
I’m doin’ my thing now, to lamp later on
Paid in the shade with some fly gators on
But now I’m grimy as they get, mud on my pants and shirt
I bet you niggaz out here know, I be puttin’ in work

Aiyyo, I’m gonna be on ti-dop, that’s all my eyes can see
Victory is mine, yeah, surprisingly
I’ve been laying, waiting for your next mistake
I put in work, and watch my status escalate
