J Cole - 1985 (Intro To "The Fall Off") Lyrics

  • 1985, I arrived
  • 33 years, damn, I'm grateful I survived
  • We wasn't s'posed to get past 25
  • Jokes on you mother*****er, we alive
  • All these niggas popping now is young
  • Everybody say the music that they make is dumb
  • I remember I was 18
  • Money, *****, parties, I was on the same thing
  • You gotta give a boy a chance to grow some
  • Everybody talkin' like they know somethin' these days
  • Niggas actin' woke, but they broke, umm
  • I respect the struggle but you all frontin' these days
  • Man, they barely old enough to drive
  • To tell them what they should do, who the ***** am I?
  • I heard one of em' diss me, I'm suprised
  • I ain't trippin', listen good to my reply
  • Come here lil' man, let me talk with ya
  • See if I can paint for you the large picture
  • Congrats 'cause you made it out your mama's house
  • I hope you make enough to buy your mom a house
  • I see your watch icy and your whip foreign
  • I got some good advice, never quit tourin'
  • 'Cause that's the way we eat here in this rap game
  • I'm *****in' with your funky lil' rap name
  • I hear your music and I know that rap's changed
  • A bunch of folks would say that that's a bad thing
  • 'Cause everything's commercial and it's pop now
  • Trap drums is the shit that's hot now
  • See, I've been on a quest for the next wave
  • But never mind, that was just a segue
  • I must say, by your songs I'm unimpressed, hey
  • But I love to see a Black man get paid
  • And plus, you havin' fun and I respect that
  • But have you ever thought about your impact?
  • These white kids love that you don't give a *****
  • 'Cause that's exactly what's expected when your skin black
  • They wanna see you dab, they wanna see you pop a pill
  • They wanna see you tatted from your face to your heels
  • And somewhere deep down, ***** it, I gotta keep it real
  • They wanna be black and think your song is how it feels
  • So when you turn up, you see them turnin' up too
  • You hit the next city, collect your money when it's due
  • You gettin' that paper, swimmin' in *****es, I don't blame you
  • You ain't thinkin' 'bout the people that's lookin' like me and you
  • True, you got better shit to do
  • You coulda bought a crib with all that bread that you done blew
  • I know you think this type of revenue is never endin'
  • But I wanna take a minute just to tell you that ain't true
  • One day, them kids that's listening gon' grow up
  • And get too old for that shit that made you blow up
  • Now your show's lookin' light cause they don't show up
  • Which unfortunately means the money slow up
  • Now you scramblin' and hopin' to get hot again
  • But you forgot you only popped 'cause you was ridin' trends
  • Now you old news and you goin' through regrets
  • 'Cause you never bought that house, but you got a Benz
  • And a bunch of jewels and a bunch of shoes
  • And a bunch of fake friends, I ain't judgin' you
  • I'm just tellin' you what's probably gon' happen when you rappin'
  • 'Bout the type of shit you rappin' 'bout
  • It's a faster route to the bottom
  • I wish you good luck
  • I'm hoping for your sake that you ain't dumb as you look
  • But if it's really true what people sayin'
  • And you call yourself playin' with my name
  • Then I really know you *****ed, trust
  • I'll be around forever 'cause my skills is tip-top
  • To any amateur niggas that wanna get rocked
  • Just remember what I told you when your shit flop
  • In five years you gon' be on Love & Hip-Hop, nigga
