NO SHUCKING AND JIVIN’ AND HIGH FIVIN’

jay-z

I don’t need no middlemen to talk to my niggas
I understand if you don’t understand I figure my nigga
That’s where we differ
I take what’s mine you accept what they give you
I get you
I don’t take no checks
I take my respect
Pharrell even told me “Go with the best bet”
Jimmy Iovine offered the safety net
Google came around with a crazy check
I feel like YouTube is the culp-a-rit
Niggas pay you a tenth of what you supposed to get
You know nigga die for equal pay, right? You know what i’m worth
I ain’t your slave right
You know i aint shucking and jivin’ and high fivin’
You know this ain’t back in the days right
But i can’t tell by the way they kill Freddie Gray right
Shot down – Mike Brown
Like the way they did Tray right?
Y’all gone’ keep choking’ niggas
we gon’ turn style
I ain’t your token nigga
You know i came in this game independent right
Tidal – My own label – same difference
Oh niggas is skeptical of they own shit
You bought nine iPhones and Steve Jobs is rich
Phil Knight worth trillions you still bought those kicks
Spotify’s nine billion and they ain’t say shit
‘Lucyyy you got some splainin’ to do’
The only one they hatin’ on look the same as you
That’s cool
I know they tryin’ to bamboozle you
Spending billions on meryin’ to confusin you
I had to tell myself “Hov, get used to it
It’s politics as usual
