“Face it, you’re basic, I’m basically one in infinity
Back to the basics, my friend is my enemy’s enemy
Smoke like a chimney, D’USSÉ the remedy
Gave her a shot, now she be giving me top in the drop
But I’m not a Kennedy, you need to stop
This elementary, thicken the plot
Make you a memory that we forgot
How does it feel like to be food for thought
Get it while it’s hot (huh)
Fuck out my face (f*** out my face)
UFO or if you a foe either way you in my space
Talking heavy on the record
Featherweights should wait in line
Godbody, you can never N****** stuck on demon time
Every second is divine
We gon’ run this s*** forever
Get it, done it, said goodbye
Do it, do it, nigga squad
Mama pressure had the presser
Pipe busts everytime You know the m******** vibe
You ain’t gang, step aside, b****” Ab-Soul & Schoolboy rap over the self-absorbing boastful record.
Further, the music video features Ab-Soul’s TDE labelmates Isaiah Rashad, Jay Rock, Zacari, Ray Vaughn and Reason.
