[INTRO]
 
 Em
 Yeah (Yeah)
 Em
 Yeah, nigga (One two, one two, one)
 Em
 The Off Season (One two, one two, one two, one)
 Em
 The Off Season, nigga
 Em
 We offing niggas (Ayy, that's right)
 Em
 Fuck you talkin’ 'bout? (That's right, ayy)
 Em
 Offing niggas (Yeah, hey, yeah)
 Em

 [VERSE] 
 Em
 Uh, applying pressure
 Em
 Started my grind where crime festers
 Em
 And nines showing like they in they second trimesters (Crazy)
 Em
 That’s why when niggas throw a shot or two online, 
 Em
 I pay no mind to their benign gestures (Mm)
 Em
 Nigga, plеase, I got my mind on much bigger things, to say the lеast
 Em
 My latest speeches sound like they was released by David East (What up, East?)
 Em
 Verses hit hard, never pitched hard or played the streets
 Em
 These niggas' whips hard, behind closed doors, can't pay the lease (Uh)
 Em
 Ain't nothin' wrong with livin' check to check 
 Em
 'cause most have to (I understand that)
 Em
 Instead of cappin', 
 Em
 why don’t you talk about being a broke rapper? (I don’t understand that)
 Em
 That's a perspective I respect because it’s real
 Em
 What it's like to be nice as fuck but got to stress to pay the bills
 Em
 That was me in '08, seein' no cake
 Em
 Not even on dates I celebrated my birth
 Em
 Just did the mental math and calculated my worth
 Em
 Shit crazy, didn’t know I got more M's 
 Em
 than a real Slim Shady video (I'm the real Shady)
 Em
 Big Boss, less Rick Ross, more like a wavy Hideo
 Em
 Kojima, they tote steamers around the way we tippy toe
 Em
 'Round crack vials and cold blooded killers, no reptiles
 Em
 Just projectiles from niggas salty, you rockin' the fresher textiles
 Em
 I seen best pals grow up and switch (I hate to see it)
 Em
 Sometimes over a couple dollars, more often over a bitch (Ah, I hate to see it)
 Em
 I can cap and say that I never scratched my jealousy's itch
 Em
 But thank God I conquered that 'cause if not I'd never be rich
 Em
 Envy keep your pockets empty, so just focus on you
 Em
 If you broke and clownin' a millionaire, the joke is on you
 Em
 Money ain't everything, I never say that (Never)
 Em
 But niggas throw stones knowin' they sell 
 Em
 they soul to get wherever they at (Come on, man)
 Em
 Just know these verses is some shit they gon' 
 Em
 forever playback, nigga (Come on, nigga)

 [OUTRO]
 Em
 Hell yeah (Ooh)
 Em
 Fuck, you know what it is, nigga
 Em
 Don't even dare
 Em
 Niggas try to act like they don't—, bitch
 Em
 That's why I gotta flex sometimes
 Em
 'Cause niggas just try to act like you just not that motherfuckin' nigga, like
 Em
 Like you just really don't do it how you do it
 Em
 Like niggas will really try to act like you don't do what you do
 Em
 Nigga look you dead in your face
 Em
 And really act like you don't do it to the level that you do it
 Em
 That's why sometimes you gotta come through and 
 Em
 just do it at the level that you do it in front of every nigga face
 Em
 So they know the difference between you, the real niggas, 
 Em
 and the mothafuckin' fraudulent niggas, man
 Em
 Don't never get it fucked up
 Em
 If a nigga can't do it like you do it sometimes 
 Em
 you gotta do it in front of his fuckin' face so he'll know forever
 Em
 "Damn, that nigga did it how I always wanted to do it and 
 Em
 I'll never be able to do it like that"
 Em
 Bitch, it's a difference (Ah)
 Em
 (These are the same ones telling our people what we are 
 Em
 and we aren't because we're just not working hard enough
 Em
 And that mentality is what we're up against today
 Em
 But this is good to know because this time, 
 Em
 when we march on the Capitol
 Em
 You can go ahead and let 'em know long before we get there, 
 Em
 we're coming to get that check)
