Quotable Lyrics

[Burna Boy]
Pull up like “Surprise, surprise it’s the President”
Can’t you see that I’m in my element?
I might just decide to slide on my enemies
I go along on a glide for the hell of it
I bring a different vibe when I’m steppin’ in
If a Nigga ain’t right, I’m correcting him
Everybody know for sure, I’ma take it there
So cross your T’s and dot your I’s when you’re messaging
I never subscribe to guys on the internet
Living for the clout, telling lies to the press again
Better don’t take me for the fool I ain’t never been
Don’t bother with lies, I’m wise when I’m checkin’ in
I’m redirecting dem back to the sender men
Then you go see reality, go start arresting dem
Be like say dem no hear when I was telling dem
Life real, I ain’t never like the rest of them

[Stormzy]
Yes, we are blessed but it’s harder to see sometimes
Tryna find my peace of mind
You said how could we be so blinded?
You just follow your dreams and go live your life
I give you something to believe in, I’ma be the reason... GET FULL LYRICS!!!

So what’s the jargon
It’s a mad one
Roll a loud one
Record my album
Don’t address anyone
But rather I have
And I’ve been working
No go do like say I don’t deserve am
You fear me sef
Me no fear no one

Because the rhythm e plenty gan ni
Please give me plenty money
Hypocrite plenty gan
Wey dey pretendi gan ni
Let’s just find them for me
Them ah identical to the devil gan ni
I dey see them, Won po bi
But emi kilokanmi

What them can’t prove
Cos them want to taste out my food
Gave you my food
Then you talk say I chance you
Try to pick a picker man up
God pass you
Feels like I’m coming from my angle
Where your vibe at
Come fuck up the cycle
Come in circle
Ain’t no telling what I might do
While you make me
Make me beg that paper man slide through

Because the rhythm e plenty gan ni
Please give me plenty money
Hypocrite plenty gan
Wey dey pretend gan ni
Let’s just find them for me
Them ah identical to the devil gan ni
I dey see them, Won po bi
But emi kilokanmi
