about

Made this song for all the quick witted, slick at the mouth, gritty, ghetto, and genius youth of New York City. And for you, to feel just as fly as we be.

Thanks for listening and purchasing. Please share this track with your peoples, and connect with me @rapwritemake on all social media.

lyrics

Verse 1
I’m built to last, and I know it well. Black and brown on me
It’s a copper feel, got more charge than a Duracell
Can tell now, even my shadow without a doubt
Plan B start to feel like you sinking into the couch
Get too comfy there you’ll disappear, I’m a flee!
Better magic up my sleeve, No Limit, Master Ps
And Qs and crossing Ts, I’ll dot ya eyes so you’ll see clearly
Me dun need nah spell check to step correct
Cut the deck (cut the deck), dealing with the cards I’m dealt
Tough it out and keep it smooth like leather on the belt
Don’t sleep––on me, not even a yawn
Narcoleptics only woke when it’s poppin’ off
I’m in the trenches, getting hands dirty, ducking henchmen
Keep working when nobody notices nor mentions
Best lessons mom and pop gave was pay attention
Lil’ nigga with heart, swinging past the fences

Chorus
Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
Man it’s so wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me

Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
It’s too wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me

Verse 2
Getting higher is imminent, with corner store etiquette
No M&Ms, throw them Little Debbies in my rider
Peeped ya headliner, they ruin the vibe
Ish to the front when they smell me right beside ya!
Bend bars and line breaks, they’ll feel the flow (flow)
I’ll steal the show (show), yeah I know that crime pays
¡Dimelo! I’ll tell you what ya, need to know
Line it up easy like my barber, I call him Figaro (now-now-now)
Wait-wait-wait a minute (WAIT!). Had to get Phresher on ‘em
No pressure, Tesla to the vespas, with the best of, Mazda, zoom-zoom, bless up
Heart on my whole outfit, I took out of the dresser
It’s armor, their shots don’t bother, y’all got get y’all vests up
Back when we was Tropical Fantasy dreamin’
Schemin’ of Red Monkeys and money (money!), glowing up from ugly (ugly!)
Fuck Gatorade, we amped for gym sippin’ a bummy
Toasts to getting better, and wildin’ out forever I’m a––

Chorus
Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
Man it’s so wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me

Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
It’s too wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me like––

Bridge
Whoo!
Yaaaooo! Yaaaooo!
Aye, this remind me of the Jigga joint
Um...how it go?

Skinny scrawny, quarter water baby
Take my time, but don’t call me lazy
Out for mine, that chicken and gravy
Damn, Ish got the flame

Chorus
Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
Man it’s so wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me

Skinny, scrawny, quarter water baby
Talk too slick, man, you can never play me
Been had the juice, don’t look at me crazy
It’s too wavy, Brooklyn shit that raised me
