Lil Poppa – Play It Safe lyrics

(Saucey, you a genius)
(Jai beats on the track, boy)

Been tryna stay awake
True story, I been cutting off n***** every day
Can’t trust a soul, I’m paranoid, I gotta play it safe
Twin on probation, can’t leave the city, that’s another case
But I ain’t worried, if I need him, he coming right away
Somebody pass me a lighter, I’m just tryna see a brighter day
Lil’ one say he need another pair, he had to burn up his Michael J’s
Give me a mic and let me rock the stage
I’m just tryna change my n**** life, he been on the block for days
All I know is get paid
Like, nah for real, I ain’t been to sleep in six days
What you been doing? Tryna run that money six ways
Heard they been sliding through the 6 with ’bout six Ks
First n**** walk up out that b****, gon’ get his s*** blazed

Could’ve f***** one of the opps baby mama but the b**** played
And I done been a lot of s*** but I ain’t never been [?]
And my nephews growing so I hustle, make sure them kids straight
If they kill me, let it be a cold case
And I know my n***** gon’ retaliate
Heart made of gold but I always seem to get f***** over
Dried up tears on my shoulder from a head I was holding
It get colder at night when I was running wild with them vultures
Don’t you say you ain’t mean it when you did when you posted it

Been tryna stay awake
True story, I been cutting off n***** every day
Can’t trust a soul, I’m paranoid, I gotta play it safe
Twin on probation, can’t leave the city, that’s another case
But I ain’t worried, if I need him, he coming right away
Somebody pass me a lighter, I’m just tryna see a brighter day
Lil’ one say he need another pair, he had to burn up his Michael J’s
Give me a mic and let me rock the stage
I’m just tryna change my n**** life, he been on the block for days
All I know is get paid
Like, nah for real, I ain’t been to sleep in six days
What you been doing? Tryna run that money six ways
Heard they been sliding through the 6 with ’bout six Ks
First n**** walk up out that b****, gon’ get his s*** blazed

Exactly
F*** whoever after me
Don’t run, I ain’t no athlete
Tryna send a n**** where the pastor be
My brother had the torch, I learned the game and he passed it to me
I don’t give a f*** how good your music sound, I ain’t rapping for free
They like, “Poppa, what you taxing?” I don’t know, but I’m tight for features
All that acting but scenes ain’t make the movie, them b****** deleted
You know all my b****** conceited, and my weed the greatest
Straight drop, who clean the cleaners?
