Young Thug – U Ain’t Slime Enough Lyrics

I’ll invade your lane, I suggest you take a detour (woo, woo, woo!)
And please check the decor, and y’all drinkin’, we pour
Never say that we poor, y’all keep actin’
Bitch I’m goin’ Eeyore, is it just me or… these hoes need to level up? Just bought a green Birkin, call her 7-Up
Your real isn’t real enough, so tell me what you fishin’ for
[Refrain: Karlae]
Yeah, yeah these bitches ain’t slime enough
Yeah, yeah these niggas not slime enough
Yeah, yeah these bitches ain’t slime enough
Yeah, yeah these niggas not slime enough
[Chorus: Young Thug]
I slime you out, so I have you on this wing jet
I slime you out, and split it with the team, yeah
I slime you out, we pull up with the sting, yeah
I slime you out, [?] with a machine, yeah
I slime you out, I slime you motherfuckers out
I slime you out, we comin’ burnin’ up your house
I slime you out, you can see it in my eyes
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
[Verse 2: Young Thug]
I scream “Slime, slime, slime,” they come in a rush
I got snakes tatted on me and my chain on my neck
I slimed up my grandma
Diamonds on my Cartiers, I see farther than Farrakhan (woo)
I know niggas gettin’ extorted, like the common cold
I done ate cereal out a plate, I done ate cereal out a bowl
Niggas ain’t slimy enough, niggas ain’t grimy enough
I got black diamonds like my grandpa’s snuff
Way more money than you
Ain’t no sympathy, no
Niggas’ll wipe your nose like you’re sick, you know? I beat that shit like congo, I pass hoes Rondo (slat)
Then I go inside that Louis purse, run ho
Proudly I kick shit, with thousands money pilin’ up
Y’all be on that internet, but money is not dialin’ up
Your wild dreams ain’t wild enough, so what you come at me for? [Chorus: Young Thug]
I slime you out, so I have you on this wing jet
I slime you out, and split it with the team, yeah
I slime you out, we pull up with the sting, yeah
I slime you out, [?] with a machine, yeah
I slime you out, I slime you motherfuckers out
I slime you out, we comin’ burnin’ up your house
I slime you out, you can see it in my eyes
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
[Verse 1: Karlae & Young Thug]
Outside lookin’ in, there is no comparison
You put them bitches in a line and I’ll embarrass them
Magnificently written, all this shit that I be kickin’
Ain’t no lions in the jungle, really all these bitches kittens
Who they kiddin’, they be smitten
Tell ’em bye and then good riddance
And they freestyles bye, I can tell that shit go written (slime)
Excuse me! See we different
Everybody out here braggin’ ’bout their dough
But when it’s time to spend that money, where that bread go? All my niggas shoot first like a damn intro
I get boxes of dough, Kimbo
You a slimy motherfucker Karlae, tell ’em the truth
You’ll catch a body for me, motherfucker, tell ’em the truth
All of these thotties ’bout to think I’m super slimey for you
But you the hottest in the mothafucka, that’s my boo, yeah
[Refrain: Karlae]
Yeah, yeah these bitches ain’t slime enough
Yeah, yeah these niggas not slime enough
Yeah, yeah these bitches ain’t slime enough
Yeah, yeah these niggas not slime enough
[Verse 3: Duke]
I’ll slime you out (slime you out)
All these other bitches thirsty, they want clout (they want clout)
Dick in her mouth (dick in your mouth)
I’m on her hip like a pouch (pouch)
She like when I’m beat her down (down)
Man ringin’ bells in the town (brrt)
I was just servin’ them ounces (ounces)
Now we poppin’ them bottles
We all in the VIP and we standin’ on couches (couches)
Surrounded by nothin’ but vultures (vultures)
I gotta keep it in motion (motion)
You see me, you know that I’m totin’ (totin’)
Playin’ ’bout none of my bros
And if I see you, I’m wipin’ your nose
[Chorus: Young Thug]
I slime you out, so I have you on this wing jet

I slime you out, we comin’ burnin’ up your house
I slime you out, you can see it in my eyes
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 1: Young Thug]
I put some bread in my pocket, Jimmy Dean
I add a rose gold chain when I drink my lean
I add Chanel on the rip of shawty’s jeans (slatt)
I need a Tylenol, I’m popped too many beans
I’m at the VMA awards, now bring ’em out
I left the dentist with some braces in her mouth (tighten it up)
I told your darling, shawty was on south
I take this Rari, park it at the house
I tell her it stop it, call me and take this up
I told her to stop it, I got on my knees up
I bought you the Rollie, you know it came forty-four B’d up, yeah
Cupid fishbowl is at the top
I put the tint on it (yeah), she tryna sit on it (yeah)
I throw the climax (what?), I got the deal on it, yeah
It came in wireless (what?), I spent a rent on it (yeah)
I’m smokin’ on thrax pack, gotta keep the seal on it, yeah (that’s kush)
You catch a body, gotta put appeal on it, yeah

I’m Bob Marley, the next century yeah
Hopped in with your boo
Wanna see chest up and then nothin’ else
[Chorus: Lil Keed]

So much blue cheese in these pants, look like the money huggin’ me

[Verse 2: Lil Keed]
MG, Benz truck, we speedin’
Yeah she say she down, she just wanna be ’round me
Yes I’m havin’ European denim on my bottom
I got niggas who won’t squeal and they came straight from the bottom, yeah yeah
Sunset sherbert in my lungs
I rock out the show, count them racks in the morning
VVS diamonds, we havin’ some pointers
I pull up with slime, them snakes out the jungle
Neck flooded, you gon’ need a sponge
I’m through with the hoe, she didn’t pass the road
I’m wiping his nose, we crossin’ him out
All it take is one call, they surrounding your house
[Chorus: Lil Keed]
Yeah, in that Bentley coupe doin’ the whole thing
Throw that shit up to the roof, bitch we balling

Young Thug – Gain Clout Lyrics

I had the dick inside of her mouth and I still had the chopper out
I put the bitch inside of a Range, the way she suckin’ my cock
I take a hundred racks right out of the bank and put on your tator tot
I got the crop Chanel bag, I’m ’bout to go fuck up the block
Hop in out the Porsche then hopped out the Jag’ and jack it like Jack in the Box
I put Chanel, the lil’ bitty bags all over all of the dots (Hah)
I had to send the car comin’, I took off and ran with the keys
I put some diamonds on her toe, yeah they dancin’, Chris Breezy
I go to Fendi and I got a tall breezy comin’ from Greece
I don’t believe her, I think she Belize or she from Middle East
[Chorus]
All of these young niggas killin’ each other, they tryna just gain clout
How you gon’ lie, just say that I said that, the fuck is you talkin’ about? I had the dick inside of her mouth and I still had the chopper out
I put the bitch inside of a Range, the way she suckin’ my cock
I take a hundred racks right out of the bank and put on your tator tot
I got the crop Chanel bag, I’m ’bout to go fuck up the block
Hop in out the Porsche then hopped out the Jag’ and jack it like Jack in the Box
I put Chanel, the lil’ bitty bags all over all of the dots
[Verse 1]
Maybach came with the torch and the hatchback
RayVac, spray his ass back nigga, blat, blat
My bitches got credentials and green eyes like a black cat
Your bitch is almost fat, better stop playin’ ‘fore you get whacked
Money got me shittin’ like a laxative, no comparin’, I ran up the racks
All of my bitches are bougie and bad, my money was long as his ‘lac
I told the bitch that wasn’t my kid, I need a paternity
Pull up to your block and takin’ your cookie, call me Bernie
[Interlude]
Got the red interior, red shoes and red Jeep
Got a bad bitch, don’t play the radio, Greg Street
[Verse 2]
Dead meat, know you’re just a dead breed
Red meat, eat it like a deadbeat (deadbeat)
I pop a wheelie, I fuck on a bitch like I’m Banshee (brrt)
Bought a Rolls Royce and then I was smokin’ on whammy
I put the bitch on her back and I beat it like Hercules (hah)
How the fuck you let these rat niggas go get them some cheese? [Chorus]
All of these young niggas killin’ each other, they tryna just gain clout
How you gon’ lie, just say that I said that, the fuck is you talkin’ about?

Outgoing Miss Showgirl engaged at Ekka
So this year Blossom was gifted her first little hat for the ride down to Brisbane.”It’s something that we’ll keep doing as it’s a symbol of a time and a place for us.”

Donna and Kris Dingle became engaged at the Ekka in 2014 and married the following year. (Supplied: Donna Dingle)
Ms Dingle said her daughter’s love for animals and people shined in the cattle sheds.”She really enjoys being around the animals and she loved the beautiful weather and being part of the show.”Trying to get the pram, port-a-cot and the box of nappies all into the boot of the car was a new experience for us though.”The couple runs a red Brangus stud on their property, which has been in the family for five generations.”We had a show team of 11 head and four made it to the Ekka this year; we were quite successful too which was a bonus,” Ms Dingle said.”It was nice to win a few ribbons for Blossom to play with.”An engagement to remember

Kris Dingle popped the question to Donna Baker at the Ekka in 2014. “Lorraine Crothers, who organises the Miss Showgirl program, was the first to say, ‘Here’s the Miss Showgirl for 2028’ — poor Blossom has big shoes to fill already.”

The Dingles first met at the Monto Show after exchanging phone numbers on the back of business cards.”Agricultural shows are what Kris and I love and we’re both so passionate about shows and showing cattle,” Ms Dingle said.”It’s what our relationship was built on, and the Ekka is the grand finale of them all and we just love it.”When we got engaged at the Ekka in 2014 it was up on Machinery Hill; nothing too romantic, just a ring and some quiet time on the hill.”It was also at the end of Ms Dingle’s reign as Miss Showgirl, which she said was a nice way to finish her tenure before handing over the crown.A tradition to continue Visiting the Ekka each year has been a tradition for Ms Dingle and one she hoped her family would keep.”It’s a family holiday for bush people and we’ll carry it on.”There’s also a little tradition I’ve always had where every time I go to the Ekka, I buy myself a new hat. (Supplied: Donna Dingle)
Finding love at the EkkaMs Dingle’s number one tip for people looking for love at the Ekka?”Being involved with something so great like Queensland shows or even your local show, you’re sure to find yourself among great people,” she said.”Whether it’s a future husband or a lifelong friend, either way I think you’re winning.” (Supplied: Donna Dingle)
“It’s done a full circle. There’s more to Brisbane’s Ekka than carnival rides and fairy floss — for some it’s the place where they fall in love, become engaged and return with their children year after year.For Donna and Kris Dingle from Abercorn in Queensland’s North Burnett region, things have come full circle.They have returned to where they became engaged in 2014, and now have their six-month-old daughter Blossom for company.Much has changed for Ms Dingle, who was crowned the Ekka’s Miss Showgirl in 2013.

Blossom and her dad feel right at home in the cattle sheds at the Ekka. Five years later I’m returning with my baby and my husband with our show team,” she said.”It was beautiful and special to introduce Blossom to the Ekka. “It was a bit of a reunion with the other showgirls — it was lovely to introduce her to them.

Everyone looks out for Katie at St Patrick’s Parish Primary School.
It is part of a comprehensive preventative system the school has invested in so that Katie can attend class. She’s heat sensitive too,” four of her teachers chime in together, reciting what they can remember from Katie’s personal anaphylactic management plan.The plan is an essential document stationed at each of the school’s telephones and in Katie’s special corner in her classroom. “She can eat hake, and tinned tuna. (ABC South West Victoria: Emily Bissland)
She is imperative in keeping Katie safe, and because of that St Patrick’s has committed to funding the position throughout Katie’s primary education. “I’m allergic and if there was another Katie they wouldn’t know that it would be my stuff,” she said.”If they touch my things and they didn’t wash their hands then I would get a reaction if I lick my fingers.”

Johanna Keane can access two prescribed EpiPens but buys two more so she always has one on hand. Photo:
Katie at a presentation of Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia’s Be a MATE award to Port Fairy Kindergarten. Anaphylaxis explained What’s the difference between an allergic reaction and anaphylaxis? Oh, and she’s very allergic to cows! The terms allergy and intolerance are often used interchangeably, but knowing the distinction could save a life. (ABC South West Victoria: Emily Bissland)
Katie has her own sensor soap and tap, and all of her things are kept in her special corner — a safety requirement this little girl explains with pragmatism. (ABC South West Victoria: Emily Bissland)
Parish foots the billTracey Dalton was Katie’s kindergarten aide and is now her school aide.The position is funded by the school — an approximated $50,000 per annum commitment — since St Patrick’s application to the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria’s funding from the Students with Disabilities (SWD) program was rejected. She cares for her daughters with an admirable mixture of light-hearted warmth and meticulous organisation.She said that Katie’s sister Izzi has also been great support.”Izzi has been present for most of Katie’s reactions which is pretty stressful for a sibling,” she said.”She goes out of her way to tell Katie that she’s jealous of what she ‘gets to eat’, just to make her feel special. But she lives with the constant threat of anaphylaxis.If it were not for extensive adaptations of Port Fairy’s kindergarten and Catholic school, mainstream education would be a deathtrap for her.Dozens of seemingly innocuous items are poisonous to Katie, a list so long that when asked what her daughter is allergic to her mother’s response is to laugh and say “a lot” before beginning to reel off the shopping list of dangers. “We make sure she’s wearing a vest out in the playground so that if she has a reaction, you know exactly where she is at what time,” Ms Dalton said.”We try to keep her out of the bushes and trees because of bees and ants, and in the hotter months we need to slow her down because she was breaking out in hives.”

Katie is able to enjoy a fairly regular schoolyard experience despite her plethora of allergies and risk of anaphylaxis. (ABC South West Victoria: Emily Bissland)
“I’m very lucky to have two fabulous kids.”Ms Keane’s determination to maintain a balanced outlook is in many ways the key element that allows Katie to experience a happy childhood, unencumbered by fear. Ms Dalton is charged with being constantly aware of Katie’s whereabouts and what she is coming into contact with. Photo:
Katie enjoys a relatively fear-free life thanks to her mother Jo. School’s containment plan keeps Katie safe

Katie’s corner isolates her personal items to prevent cross-contamination if other kids were to use them. In an incredible display of her can-do attitude, Katie’s mother is always very quick to point out all the things her daughter can eat. However, after a few months, the effectiveness of their safety plan has helped school staff relax and has revealed the strength of their school community.”In our classroom we don’t just have two sets of eyes, we have 29 sets of eyes,” said Katie’s class teacher Antonia Balmer.”The kids know what Katie is allergic to and they’re all on the look-out.”If they see a bee or an ant crawling around, often they’re quicker to pick that up than we are.”It’s a bit like that saying — ‘it takes a village to bring up a child’,” she said. But the thought that you may have to do it, it’s frightening,” she said. Katie Keane is like any six year old, missing her two front teeth and with a great love of monkey bars. On five of those occasions, it was Katie’s mum who administered the life-saving treatment.Living 20 minutes from an ambulance services means that the emergency has to be dealt with by her.”One of the things I had to overcome quickly is that if you don’t act the possibility is death,” Ms Keane said.”You have to be brave, if anything, that’s what I’ve had to learn — that I can actually be very brave.”Despite this, Ms Keane is seemingly buoyant with optimism.”I don’t like her whole life to be about her allergies, we lead a really normal life,” she emphasised.”There’s just a lot of planning involved if you do something out of the ordinary.”Fastidious planningMs Keane tells of how some of the small things can be hard — like always needing to be aware of what you are wearing before you hug your daughter.”Katie can spot wool from a mile off,” she said.

“There was a bit of fear to start with, to be honest,” said Sue Paulka, the school principal in the south-west Victorian town.Katie’s school aide, Tracey Dalton, quantified that fear.”I know that everyone here, if they were put in the situation, they would give her that EpiPen. Photo:

“Dairy, eggs, banana, lamb, beef, chicken, pork, leather, nuts, gelatine, strawberries, peas, watermelon, pumpkin. We’re all aware of her needs, it’s just the logistical side of things and making sure someone is watching her at all times,” said its principal Ms Paulka.The school adapted and implemented a plan already devised in 2017 by Katie’s kindergarten.”Thanks to the kinder and all the work they put in to help her transition over to school she’s had a pretty good run,” said Ms Keane, who was so impressed that she nominated the kindergarten for an award.Port Fairy Kindergarten was this year’s recipients of the ‘Be a MATE’ award from Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia — MATE being ‘Make Allergy Treatment Easier’.

The school has not banned any particular lunch foods, and they have kept their brood of schoolyard chickens.The other students simply make sure the chooks are not running around when Katie is.”Katie’s just blended into our school environment. But the fear is real, and Johanna Keane’s calm is astonishing.She is a nurse by day, and in every other waking hour a mother who must remain in a constant state of preparedness.In Katie’s short life she has been saved by EpiPen 12 times. So we’re a bit lucky there,” Ms Keane said, without irony.Constant preparedness the keyMs Keane’s willingness to laugh and emphasis on the positive is indicative of her character.

Katie’s reactions to allergens vary in severity from large itchy hives (right) to anaphylactic symptoms of limpness, coughing and wheezing (left). She loves green beans and potato chips, and she can have wheat and soy. There’s a whole heap of stuff,” her mother Johanna Keane said.What Ms Keane leaves off that list, Katie’s St Patrick’s Parish Primary School teachers fill in later.”Ants, bees, wool, rabbits, chooks, kiwi fruit. Katie’s dad, Glenn Keane, is a butcher, and working with meat every day meant he had to go home and shower before he could pick Katie up from school.Otherwise he had to tell her “no hugs”.”That’s really hard,” Ms Keane said.”Not being able to hug your daughter, or having to brush your teeth and wash your face before you can give her a kiss.”Her parents’ fastidious planning and her school’s multi-layered system of protection is keeping Katie happy, safe and included.”I’m overwhelmed by Katie’s resilience,” Ms Keane said.”Fortunately, I don’t think she feels that different because she is never excluded.”We look for positives in life and there are many!”
