We was just playin' in the Ave. the other day
I never thought I'd be makin' this song
This shit's crazy, but look
I don't even know where to start but
When I first met you, all you talked about was Wu-Tang movement
Then I introduced you to this Cocaine Muzik
And every other day you expressed your love for Ray
And your love for Ye then we used to debate
'Bout how your partners in the industry thought I still sold yay
We were both geeked up by doin' the deal with Jay
I got my first number one and you was on the run with me
Never want to leave the country if I can't take my gun with me
You weren't with the gangster shit but yet you still hung with me
Next time I go to Disney, I'm a take your son with me
First we went to London, then we went to Dubai
You was off the Hen, I was smokin', I got too high
Damn, time flies by
It's like I knew your whole lifetime
We accomplished so much shit, my nigga
We accomplished so much shit
We talked about so much shit
We done so much shit, like
You know me, I'm a stubborn motherfucker
Like, I ain't listen to nobody
I'm just movin' how I'm movin' and like
You were always just the nigga to get through to me
I don even know like, how you was able to do it like
Like with the whole shit about
They were tryna get me to go for years and years
And I ain't give a fuck how my money was, I just
I weren't movin' like that 'cause
All my niggas convicted felons
I couldn't get the straps across the motherfuckin' customs
I just can't move like that bro, you know what I mean?
And I remember like [?] callin' me late at night like
"You really need to do this for your career, this made it
Be on the biggest record in Europe right now"
And I'm still like, "Fuck it", you know what I mean like? I wasn't even trippin'
And you're like, "Bro we gotta go, man, we gotta go international, we gotta"
I'm like, "Man look bruh, I ain't fuckin' with it bruh" you know what I'm sayin'?
I called you back that same night like, "We goin' to London"
We used to walk inside the office give them people hell
I knew you was loyal when your partner went to jail
You never missed a court date, you stayed on the lawyer
And I know [?] gonna miss you he was really for you
Use to tell me to my face when I was full of shit
I ain't tryin' to win, I'll do some other shit
I respect you for that more than you'll ever know
I had issues with niggas, you told me, "Let it go"
You helped me realize I was bigger than just a street nigga
Took your advice, got security but I still keep my pistols though, yeah
Took your advice, got security but I still keep the, pistols though
See like, I remember we could go back and back and forward about
Man you get too much money to be like
Ridin' round with all these crazy ass guns and
I understand them young niggas and
I understand y'all come from a certain life
But if you wanna go to that next level like
You gotta act like it
I ain't gon' lie, like that shit just go through one ear and out the other ear
'Cause I'm just from that culture homie
Like where I just don't see nobody protectin' me like me
These young niggas with me gon' die with me but
Like I'm a die with them and this understood so
I just always felt like that's that security, we our own security
You told me I'm still a superstar but that nigga crazy
I introduced you to [?], you say he's amazin'
We both done fucked up 'bout Snootie, we had a plan for him
We know he had his little issue but we were prayin' for him
I remember you called me excited, sayin' you had talked to Ye
I can't lie, I was geeked, I'm like, "What he say?"
You was on some shit like, "My guys, they wanna work with you"
I ain't even gonna front you had told me all the Ye stories and shit
And we had been working together like probably a year and a half now like
I was like, "Man, I don't really know if you fuck with Ye like that"
You know what I'm sayin'? I'm just bein' G
And you like, "No for real, like he wanna work with you"
I'm like "When?"
You're like, "Tomorrow"
Nigga shit was so crazy 'cause you know I don't even like flyin'
Like I would jump on a motherfuckin' Southwest flight
Like nigga sittin' way in the back
Me, I don't give a fuck nigga like
We was on a first thing smokin' nigga to LA
We're gonna work with Kanye
That shit was crazy
We walked into the studio and nigga was eatin' pot pie and chicken and shit
He was just a cool aired nigga like I just
Immediately screamin' and droppin' joint after joint, after joint, after joint
And I ain't give a fuck was it was gon' be on
If it was gon' be on anything, and it was just
I always wanted to work with Ye and you knew it
It was crazy
Now I told you I want to sound with Jay and you asked me why
You didn't really feel this shit but you was down to ride
Then we went up to the office you had a different view
And you were rushin' me to sign like the shit was you, crazy
See I always knew [?] was your man and shit 'cause you always talked about him
You remember we sat down in the room with Jay?
And that nigga was just chattin' some real shit to us
We were holdin' out the pose on some G shit though
We say I'm G, you know what I'm sayin'?
We get money too, you feel me?
When we left the office we were like, "Damn"
I mean, nigga was just amazed at like
Niggas that grew up together and built an empire together
And I was really motivated by that
That day I told you that was how I wanted me and my brothers to be and me and my niggas to be
And then we went to this little private party, remember that shit?
Jay got to them to pop the Ace in it, that shit spilled all on the table and shit
I remember you pulled me to the side
You were like, "I've been in the game a long time, this is like the very, very first time I've felt like an artist"
You were tellin' me like you felt like an artist
You were like, "Nigga I'll sign the contract right now if they break that motherfucker out"
Damn, if I knew talkin' to you was my last time
The other night it wouldn't have been about no CM9
I would have let you know I value your participation
I would have thanked you for your patience and your conversations
No you weren't forced to question God, and you were somewhere better
But we were supposed to get rich and gon' retire together

I don't know
How can I go on?
Continue to stay strong
Continue to pray hard
Keep singing your name
And we're gonna just [?]
It was many nights like this
When I could call you
And you could pick the phone up
'Cause you was my partner
And you was there for number one records
And I can't thank you enough
