Kodak Black – Right Now Lyrics

Pop one, pop two, pop three
Fuck the law, I ain’t worried ’bout a plea
Fuck the alphabet, boy I just copped a QP
See me when ya see me, it’s Lil’ K to the B
On my Kyocera, my lick just called me for them D’s
I’m on E, pockets full, I’m on E
Ski with the Ree’s, I could pull a couple G
Ten toes down, I can put you on yo’ feet
Don’t slow me down, roadrunnin’ full speed
So high, I never felt like this
I’m so high, I’m ’bout to beat my bitch
I’m so high, it got my teeth grindin’
But fuck it, I’m just gon’ keep slidin’, ’cause the beat ridin’
I used to swim in the money, now I’m deep divin’
I swear I’m higher than a bih, it got me freestylin’
She say “Boy I never felt like this”
I told her “Shut up and eat my dick”
Aye pass the joint, you know sharin’ is carin’
I’m so high, I’m just sittin’ here starin’
(Kodak what you lookin’ at? [Verse 1]
I need to vibe ’cause I’m [?] right now
So I’m firin’ up the crypt right now
Cause I’m higher than a bih right now
I’ll turn this whole shit upside down
Stop lyin’ on ya dick
If you hit her, then you hit
Stop lyin’ on a bih
Everybody know ya snitched
Stop ridin’ on my dick, why you worried ’bout me? You zoned out)
‘Bout that money, I’ll shoot out to Maryland
All these books, you’d think I’m a librarian
I bumped into a powerhouse, [?]
You keep grindin’, you can get a McLaren
[Interlude]

Kodak Black – Down South Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I know you from the Bronx
Heard it’s cold, it’s like my heart
Let me book ya a first class flight to Florida where it’s hot
I’ma take ya down south, show you what I’m rappin’ ’bout
Young niggas, 14, permanent golds in they mouth
I be jumpin’ on these beats, remember sleepin’ on the couch
Every nigga in these streets know about me, they can vouch
I’m still wearin’ Ree’s like I’m still out here sellin’ rock
Like my Ree’s, you gon’ let me tie ya down or you not? [Verse 2]
‘Cause girl you got me singin’
I feel like I’m figulatin’
I might switch my occupation and just open up a bakery
‘Cause every night, we cakin’
Girl you sweeter than Miss Allie
I might eat ya like a paste, and keep ya like my .380
Say I been trippin’ lately
I been in my feelings lately
I ain’t even been jiggin’, while they stickin’, we conversatin’
I ain’t been trickin’ with these bitches even though you ain’t my lady
We ain’t seal the deal but I’ma keep it real and be patient
I’m runnin’ with them Z’s, remember dancin’ with the devil
You 26, but I’m 2613 forever
Young rebel but I’m clever
I don’t get too sentimental
Now I got you where I want you
I know the spot like a freckle
I know what it is now
I know how I feel now
I wanna build now, me with you
Call me on the FaceTime
Heard it through the grapevine, that I wanna plant my seed with you
You gon’ make me change my ways
Postin’ on my page, WCW
I want you to be my main
I don’t want no one but you
[Hook]
Girl you motivate me, I been wonderin’ lately
And I was thinking, you and me
I be smilin’ baby when you call me baby
You know how to drink me, make me weak
Baby girl you special
I’ma try my best to, give you enough effort in the week
Am I bein’ extra? When you wanna vacate, MIA is the spot
Where you hop on jet skis, niggas ridin’ on yachts
Four wheelers, cuban links, niggas hoppin’ out the drop
Show ya ’round the Noya, Ugly Corner, 1800 Block
[Hook]
Girl you motivate me, I been wonderin’ lately
And I was thinking, you and me
I be smilin’ baby when you call me baby
You know how to drink me, make me weak
Baby girl you special
I’ma try my best to, give you enough effort in the week
Am I bein’ extra? Am I oversteppin’ my boundaries? Am I oversteppin’ my boundaries?

Kodak Black – Snap Shit Lyrics

[Intro]
I hit rock bottom
Thought I was never gon’ come up bih
For real though, thank you Lord
[Verse]
Thank you lord I’m here, I never imagined this
It’s Lil’ Kodak Black, bitch come capture this
I ain’t puttin’ up with that, no I ain’t havin’ it
Been showin’ too much love, no more after this
They told me I’m a star, actin’ like I’m average
‘Cause I be rappin’ but I don’t be on that rappin’ shit
I still be in the hood, tote my strap and shit
Stop that flaggin’, that’s how shit be happenin’
Last time I let you slide, I’ma whoop yo’ ass for this
Save the choke sandwich in my mattress
Aye, where them yellow bones? I don’t want no black bitch
I’m already black, I don’t need no black bitch
Put yo’ hands up if you a bad bitch
Bae let’s go and blow a check at Saks Fifth
I said “I love you”, I was just on that yak bitch
Girl you know I’m bein’ sarcastic
I bag her then I’m gone with daddy shit
Girl don’t call my phone with that and shit
Fuck it, I don’t owe a nigga shit
I been out here thuggin’ since a jit
Remember we was strugglin’ in the bricks
Nigga had to go and hit a lick
I was throwin’ rocks in the ditch
Now I’m throwin’ rocks at the chaingang
I just wanna gain and maintain
Ain’t nothin’ change, it’s still the same damn thing
New year but ain’t a damn thing changed
Still in traffic, road runnin’, switchin’ lanes
State to state, I’m breakin’ the bank
Went to BA then I went to Chase
Only hang around with niggas who gon’ crank
Only hang around with niggas who don’t think
Niggas out here takin’ chances everyday
Niggas out here wildin’ but they people straight
Can’t say no to drugs, I be smokin’ dank
Don’t let Kodak in here he gon’ stink up the place
I’m so God damn high, I can’t feel my face
I’m so God damn high, I just might stick up the place
First I start my day off with a wake and bake
I ain’t workin’ out but I be shakin’ weight
Now my lawyer hollerin’ “Pay me”
‘Cause I got court December 7th
Just in case them crackers slay me
Girl I’ma come and get you pregnant
Just tell my baby boy his dad a legend
Just don’t let him be like me, ’cause I don’t learn my lesson
I was already a felon once they let me out my mama belly
Got a telly in my cell, I’m smokin’ reggie with my celly
Yeah I’m young and reckless
I just stole a Lexus just to flex it
Hit the scene, still in full on Ree’s and I ain’t even sell it
I’m a street nigga after paper
I be snappin’, I be scammin’
They used to call me Lil’ Duffle cause I’m a young hustler
Nigga I bring that check in
Uh uh
I’m a lil’ motherfucker, I’m fuckin’ on ya mammy
Slidin’ in a Infinity
Down here, we call that bih a FinFin
Yeah, man they leaked my goddamn song and I wasn’t even finished
Young nigga, I’m dufflin’, yeah, I’m gettin’ to them Benji’s
Mind yo motherfuckin’ business
Windows tinted, I think this my car
I think this shit rented
Windows tinted, I think this a new one
I think this a rental
Everything orange, I’m smokin’ cantaloupe
[Outro]
Thank ya Lord
I swear I ain’t never expected this before
I ain’t shit, so why you sendin’ me all these blessings? Roadrunnin’, tunnel vision, I been speedin’ with no limit for it
But I ain’t never thought that it could get this far
First they wanted me to win, I had all the support
But once I won, they don’t love me no more
‘Cause they wanted me to win, but they ain’t want for me to get this far
They say “No, no I ain’t mean for you to get that far”
Drop a nigga girlfriend off to school in a Jaguar
Drop a nigga bitch to work in a Jaguar

Rachel Platten – Without You Lyrics

Maybe you can help me understand
Since you’re so inside my mind
I see, see the way you look at me
So shocked like you know what’s happening
[Pre-Chorus]
Finally I’m on my side, and you don’t like me now
Can I tell that I’m just as mad at me as you are? Can I tell you it’s breaking my heart? [Chorus]
But I need to love me, and you make it hard to
I need to put me, a little above you
You keep taking, you’re always taking
Well I’ll be takin’ care of you
So I need to love me, love me without you
Love me without you
I need to love me without you
Oh! [Verse 1]
Is it possible to love someone and to hate him at the same time? [Verse 2]
Sorry I don’t wanna cut you out
Sorry am I really sayin’ this aloud? My body is feelin’ kinda sick now
Cause what I’m saying
Sorry you’re the one that puts me down
Drainin’ them, feeling me whipped out
Honestly, it’s like you’re trying to lift my crown
[Pre-Chorus]
I, I know it’s true
But you look at me hurting, and I feel so pulled over
It’s like I’m breaking my own heart
[Chorus]
But I need to love me, and you make it hard to
I need to put me a little above you
You keep taking you’re always taking
Well I’ll be takin’ care of you
So I need to love me, love me without you
Love me without you
I need to love me without you
[Post-Chorus]
Don’t you make this about you
I just need to love me, and you make it hard to
So I need to love me, love me without you
[Bridge]
Yeah
Mm mm
(without you)
[Final Chorus]
I need to love me, you make it hard to
I need to put me, little above you
You keep takin’, you’re always takin’
Well I’ll be takin’ care of you
So I need to love me, love me without you
Love me without you
I need to love me without you
Don’t you make this about you
I just need to love me, and you make it hard to
I need to love me, love me without you

Mariah Carey – Lil Snowman Lyrics

Oh, my little snowman
He’s so cool this kinda time

Nothing’s gonna bring him down
All the people say that there ain’t no way

And they don’t know how he makes me feel

You can’t tell me, he ain’t for real
