[Verse 1]
I hate rich niggas, goddammit
Cause I ain't never had a lot, dammit

Who you had to kill, who you had to rob
Who you had to fuck just to make it to the top dammit

Or maybe that's daddy money, escalator no ladder money
Escalading new caddy money
Worst fear going broke cause I'm bad with money
Crooked smile nigga momma never had the money damn
I ain't trippin'
A nigga Jordan I ain't Pippen yeah

Up the steps I ain't slippin'
Tears blood sweat and I ain't
crippin, here's
A song you can sing along with when you down
On some let you know you ain't alone shit
When your momma ain't at home cause she got a second job

Delivering pizzas you think she out here getting robbed
Please God watch her I know how niggas do

Half cracker but a nigga too
Talking all that shit 'bout your step-pops
How he was a dog now look at you

I ain't bad as that nigga plus dawg I'm a grown man now
I ain't mad at that nigga
But if a plane crashed and it only killed his lame ass
I'd be glad it's that nigga, nigga

Did Kay dirty now it's back to broke
Refund check she used that to float
Momma gets depressed falls in love with the next maniac
On crack use that to cope

Make a nigga smoke a whole sack of dope
Writing rhymes tryna bring back the hope

Try to ride the storm out and crashed the boat
Could've drowned,
but I grabbed the rope

[Hook]
And there go you
And there go you
And there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
And there go you
And there go you
And there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
Sing
You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul Anna
How much for your soul Anna

You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul Anna
How much for your soul Anna

[Verse 2]
I hate rich niggas goddammit
Cause I ain't never had a lot dammit
Niggas can't front on the flows you got

But every fucking verse how much dough you got
Homie, don't quit now hear my shit and tried to switch now
Know you felt the shit just now, know you felt the shit just now

Ain't that more to you? Don't it ever get boring to you?
I realize deep down you a coward getting high off of power
Fuck it more to you, saw through you
And it made me ashamed that I played the game

Not for more money like Damon Wayans
Wanted the respect but it came with fame
I just wanted love but this ain't the same

I took a train down memory lane
And watched little Jermaine do his thang before he made a name

It's like Sony signed Basquiat
He gave it all he got, and now the nigga don't paint the same, damn
I guess he can't complain

All the money that be raining in
Spend a hundred thou for the chain again

Thinking old school niggas like Dana Dane
Probably kill for another claim to fame,
my brain the same
Yeah, nigga, at least he ain't insane
At least he ain't insane
You ain't crazy, motherfucker, you're just afraid of change
That's new, maybe that's true

But listen here I got a bigger fear
Of one day that I become you

And I become lost and I become heartless
And numb from all the Ménages
Just one bitch don't feel the same no more
And Henny don't really kill the pain no more
Now I'm Cobain with a shotgun aimed at my brain
Cause I can't maintain no more

Tad bit extreme I know
Money can't save your soul

But there go you

[Hook]
And there go you
And there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew

And there go you
And there go you
And there go you
Selling me dreams and telling me things you knew
Sing
You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul Anna
How much for your soul Anna
You got what I want
I got what you need
How much for your soul Anna
How much for your soul Anna
