Song by NF


On, even on my off days
Right, even when I’m off base
Life, live it like tomorrow ain’t
Promised to me, gotta get it today
Why wait? Too late, never heard it
Always on time
My way or the highway
Mind state, not safe, need grace

Need love, need God, need faith
Betray, cut ties, first time, first take
Worst case, wordplay, my home
My stage, my place, less you, more Ye
More Drake, more Em’, more Dre
More Cole, more Kendrick, more names
Cordae, Sean Black, my list
My names, my picks, my taste

My faith in my own hands
Hand it over to you? No chance
Wanna get the job done, right?
I do it myself, oh yeah
I am what they wanna be
Who they wanna see? The big man
God’s plan, got a problem with the boy?
Take it up with Him, then, ah

Iconic, who want it?
Heard that you was looking for the smoke, huh?
Catch me on a bad day and you might find it (right?)
Fine dining, flying private
Couple things that I can easily afford to do
Couple things that you don’t know a thing about
You might’ve read about it, heard about it, thought about it
Dreamt about it, played it out inside your head
But what I’m doing for a living, isn’t somethin’ I was taught
You either got it or you don’t got it, and you don’t got it

I’m the co-signer, you the broke artist
I’m the captain and you in coach, flying
I’m the lead role, you in the background
Yeah, I’m the star player, you the mascot
Yeah, I’m the future, you the past, old timer
I’m the truth and you the boldface liar
I’m the CEO and you the customer
I’m the frontman and the ghost ghostwriter

I’m the creator, I’m the director
I’m the hitmaker, I’m the empire
I’m the shot caller, I’m the showstopper
I’m the real one, you the fake knockoff, ooh
Jaw drop, headliner, top gunner, head honcho
Eye-catcher, real stunner, y’all got it? New topic
Ye’s documentary was inspirational to me, I love watching
Lames try to keep stars in the dirt, just ’cause they afraid of you

Funny how they switch up quick
When they realize that your name buzzin’
Funny how they all wanna hop on board
When they see the wave comin’
Funny how they wouldn’t put me on the tour
And now they hit me up and say
“I hope you’re doing well, we should do a tour or somethin'”
Man, stop

We ain’t doin’ nothing, got my own thing going
That’s the way I like it
Too many cooks in the kitchen, that’s a problem
I ain’t never gotta worry ’bout
Twelve people on the song, man, to each his own
But for me, that’s a little wild
Got enough people in my business
I don’t need another hand dippin’ in the pot

I don’t need nobody showing me the ropes
I don’t need you, tellin’ me to do my job
I don’t need to hear you say that I’m the goat
I don’t need you askin’ me to switch style
I don’t need you laughing, when I tell a joke
I don’t need you faking, tryna crack a smile
I don’t need you (I don’t need you), I don’t need you
I don’t need you tellin’ me it’s been a while (been awhile)

I don’t need the label breathing down my neck (neck)
I don’t need the venue tellin’ me it’s loud (loud)
I don’t need you talkin’, when I’m tryna rap (woo)
I don’t need my name comin’ out your mouth (whoa)
I don’t need you using me to get respect
I don’t need a picture with you, for some clout
I don’t need you, I don’t need you
I don’t need you tellin’ me you got some doubts

Worry ’bout yourself, yeah
I don’t need your help, yeah

What’s your name? What’s your name? What’s your name?
Doesn’t ring a bell
Every time I look down and
Your number pops up on the cell
Shake my head, threatenin’ me
Trying to get me to respond, well
If you really knew me, you would know that that’s the
Quickest way to make me turn my back on you and
