I Stand on That | E-40 ft. Joyner Lucas & T.I.

Look like I push dope, but I really push hope.


Joyner Lucas:

This that shit that made me ball out on my old bitch, ooh

Yeah, I'm chosen

I ain't felt this sick since Covid, ooh

Can't control it

I got lit and now I'm zonin', ayy

This my moment

I don't trust the ho I'm bonin', woo

Maury Povich

I made a change, I had to be different

I hate when I'm stuck on the edge

I ain't got time to argue with niggas

I'd rather get money instead (Joyner)

Word to my folks, we used to be close

So now I'm just stuck in my head

I wanted a rose, but I like to ghost

If I'm makin' love to the dead

(Lit, lit, lit, lit, lit)

I gotta step to the podium

I'm runnin' shit like Napoleon

My niggas smokin' petroleum

Back when a nigga had no DM's

I had to clean with the other custodians

Nobody fucked with me, nobody noticed him

Now I'm that nigga that salt to your sodium

Bitch, I'm the bomb, I lit the plutonium

Feet on the ground, I'm breakin' linoleum

This is revenge and all of you owe me one

Shorty my bitch, but she ain't the only one

Yeah, I'm a god, I know I'm the holy one

I do not smoke, but you gotta roll me one

You gotta, you gotta roll me one

She got a twin and I need the both of them

Streets can't help me

We not friends, so please don't "bro" me

Bitch, come blow me

Pull up my mamba, R.I.P. Kobe

That's my OG

Still no Grammy, but I got trophies

Then I went OT

She text me lowkey, water emoji

Feelin' myself, like, "Look what I built"

Like, "Look at my wealth," I did what I felt

I bet on my myself, reinvented myself

All the plaques I got won't fit on my shelf

I'm sick of myself, jumped out of my skin

Hopped into my shell, I'm feeling quite well

You ain't been in my prison, won't fit in my cell

Won't fit in my pants, don't look at my belt

I mean what I say and I say what I meant, my nigga

(I stand on that)

I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six, my nigga

(I stand on that)

I'll build my own empire to give to my kids, my nigga

(I stand on that)

I try to do everything with 'em that I never did, my nigga

(I stand on that)

I went through the storm, but I made a way, so I'll be alright

(I stand on that)

If you never crossed me or did me wrong, I got you for life

(I stand on that)

I built a team of sharks and all of them niggas'll bite

(I stand on that)

If you got a enemy, I got a enemy, get 'em on sight


Play with my feelings and you gon' catch feelings, your people gon' feel it

I ran with the villains, was wheelin' and dealin'

I'm worth a few million, I'm chasing a billion

I'm up like a ceiling, I'm really a real

A badger, a beast from the soil, and you can get popped like a boil

Bitch boy, you gon' leak like some oil

Walk up on me and I'm dumpin'

As long as I can see it coming, it's on

And if I run out of ammo, I'm runnin', I'm gone

Even though I'm an animal, long as I done made it home

Got a family to feed and I'm grown

And good Lord made me strong, highly-favored and chosen

My heart made of stone, I guess you can say frozen

So leave me alone, I'm unbroken, outspoken

I stand by my word 'cause it's golden

Out here in the Pacific Ocean, West Coastin'

Don't let a ho make us enemies

We're family just like the Genovese

Stick to the script, we don't do sucka shit

And we deep like a herd of them wildebeests

Trademarks and entities, no, I ain't sellin' keys

Look like I push dope, but I really push hope

Dressed like a boss, but I rap like I'm broke

You off of parole, then make sure that you vote

My ninja, you're not alone

Might pose for the 'gram with my money phone

Turn my bands to a fan like I'm hella young

Take a picture with money all down my arm

Just to show we the same, although I'm reformed

Diamonds yellow like kettle corn

I never drive her, but trust me, I got a foreign

Fuck politics and democracy

Let's put our money together, buy property

I came in the game with a prayer and a wish and a dream

(I stand on that)

Vow to take care of my kids and my family and queen

(I stand on that)

This game that I'm spittin' is over they head like a drone

(I stand on that)

If we rockin', we rock it, I rock with you, right or you wrong

(I stand on that)

This a resurgence on thorough ones, gotta stay solid as steel

(I stand on that)

Can't be an imposter or fraud or fake or a counterfeit

(I stand on that)

Some of my dudes got jobs and some of 'em sell narcotics

(I stand on that)

I'm an entrepreneur, I develop my own products


King of the South, a trap music original

Former pharmacist, been back on medicinal

Lay down the law and I'm standin' on principles

Consequence come with it, make it intentional

Highly a visual, hard to ignore me

I grew up on game from Too $hort and E-40

A triple OG and just 'bout to be forty

Still, run up on me, we'll be poppin' these 40s

We not goin' for it (Woo, y'all niggas, y'all niggas)

I know you can't see the trees for the forest

Let the allure, money, and whores

Take you to a place where your ass'll get torn

Okay, now you've been warned (Woo, woo)

Only one more suggestion before we move on

Pray to the Lord that you can afford

What it gon' cost you for you to move forward in life

Facin' the work, a scenario without a plan

End up dead just rollin' the dice

Hmm, kinda how I do it nowadays

Who the fuck ready to die?

Been fucking on your bitch all day, huh

She don't wanna wave me bye

Okay, I-N-G, and ballas obey all the sovereignty

I'm probably in a fly boutique with a low-key freak try-tryin' new things (King)

They say things, I do things, I buy buildings, they buy new bling

Make your bitch my boo-thing

Got a problem with it? Let my youngin run through things

Stand up guy must stand for something

Cross that line, nigga, I know one thing

Violation mean demonstration, mandatory

(I stand on that)

I'ma go in your shit, you in my face talking shit 'bout my dawg

(I stand on that)

Defend her honor and my old lady, my mama

(I stand on that)

Man of my word, handle my business, nigga, I promise

(I stand on that)

I ain't never folded, ain't never told on no nigga

(I stand on that)

Due to the fact that's how I feel, run a fade if ya feel different

(I stand on that)

Yeah, I'm a nine-figure nigga, ride with a stick still

(I stand on that)

'Cause doing time still doing better than getting killed

(I stand on that), yeah
