Nicki Minaj – Moment 4 Life Lyrics
I fly with the stars in the skies
I am no longer trying to survive
I believe that life is a prize
But to live doesn’t mean you’re alive
Don’t worry bout me and who I fire
I get what I desire, it’s my empire
And yes I call the shots I am the umpire
I sprinkle holy water upon a vampire
In this very moment I’m king
In this very moment I slay Goliath with a sling
This very moment I bring
Put it on everything that I will retire with the ring
And I will retire with the crown, Yes!
No I’m not lucky I’m blessed, Yes!
Clap for the heavyweight champ, Me!
But I couldn’t do it all alone, We!
Young Money raised me, grew up out in Baisley
Southside Jamaica, Queens and it’s crazy
Cause I’m still hood, Hollywood couldn’t change me
Shout out to my haters, sorry that you couldn’t faze me
Ain't being cocky we just vindicated, best believe that when were done
This moment will be syndicated, I don’t know this night just reminds me
Of everything that they deprived me of, kuhh!
P-p-p-p-p-put ya drinks up, it’s a celebration every time we link up
We done did everything they can think of
Greatness is what we on the brink of
I wish that I could have this moment for life, for life, for life
Cause in this moment I just feel so alive, alive, alive
What I tell ‘em hoes bow bow bow to me, drop down to ya knees
Young Money the Mafia that’s word to Lil Cease
I’m in The Dominican Big Papi Ortiz
Doing target practice, all these bitches just aiming to please
Shoutout to the CEO 500 degrees
Shoutout to the OVO, red wings and fatigues, oooow
Niggas wanna be friends how coincidental
This supposed to be y'all year, we ain’t get the memo
Young King, pay me in gold
40 got a bunch of weed he ain’t even roll
These niggas be droppin songs they ain’t even cold
Weezy on top and that nigga ain't even home, yet!
Yeaah, be very afraid
These other rappers getting bodied and carried away
Fuck it me and Nicki Nick gettin’ married today
And now you bitches that be hatin' can catch the bouquet, oww
Yeah, you a star in my eyes, you and all them white girls party of five
Are we drinking a lil more I can hardly decide
I can’t believe we really made it I’m partly surprised, I swear
Daaam, this one for the books, man!
I swear this shit is as fun as it looks, man!
I’m really tryna make it more than what it is
Cause everybody dies but not everybody lives!
This is my moment, I waited all my life I can tell it's time
Drifting away I’m one with the sunsets, I have become alive
