Lyrics Fire Squad – J. Cole

Not gonna be no more kings
Be careful of any man who claims so
Because deep down
He clings to the need for power
But in reality, he’s a coward
He’s afraid of death
And sometimes.. me too

N**ga why you actin’ like a ho
Know that I’ma ride for ya, either way it go
Tell me, girl why you be stressin’ me for time
When you tell me you love me
Can’t you see I’m tryna climb

Damn my n**ga why you actin’ like a b**ch
If you scared to take a chance
How the f**k we gon’ get rich
Come here baby why you always insecure
Hold on tight to a n**ga and be sure

Ain’t a way around it no more, I am the greatest
A lotta n**gas sat on the throne, I am the latest
I am the bravest, go toe to toe with the giants
I ain’t afraid of you n**gas, I’ll end up fading you n**gas
‘Fore it’s all said and done, this n**ga need medicine
My Uzi, it weighed a ton, I need me a better gun
In fact I just might need two, cause n**gas say they the one
And I got something to prove
Forgive me lord here they come, blaoow

N**ga why you actin’ like a ho
Know that I’ma ride for ya, either way it go
Tell me, girl why you be stressin’ me for time
When you tell me you love me
Can’t you see I’m tryna climb

Damn my n**ga why you actin’ like a b**ch
If you scared to take a chance
How the f**k we gon’ get rich
Come here baby why you always insecure
Hold on tight to a n**ga and be sure

My inhibition’s fighting my intuition
Premature premonition, showing me the demolition
Of these phony n**gas, so ahead of my time
Even when I rhyme about the future I be reminiscing
You want the truth well come and listen
I’m like that time you bagged a dime
And checked ya phone and saw it was a number missing
As fate passes you by, half of you try
The other half of you fried, too high to actually fly

One day y’all have to decide, who you gon’ be
A scary n**ga or a n**ga that’s gon’ rule like me
Keep it true like me, Cole you might be
Like the new Ice Cube, meets the new Ice-T
Meets 2 Live Crew, meets the new Spike Lee
Meets Bruce like Wayne, meets Bruce like Lee
Meets ’02 Lil Wayne, in a new white tee
Meets KD, ain’t no n**ga that can shoot like me
Blaooow

I know we are the same
You and I

N**ga why you actin’ like a ho
Tell me, girl why you be stressin’ me for time
My n**ga why you actin’ like a b**ch
Come here baby why you always insecure
Hold on tight to a n**ga and be sure

Who’s the king..
Came from the bottom n**ga, with stains on my shirt
What you expected from me, I came from the dirt
Money my motivator, the songs that I sing
Picture a peasant passin’ from pawn to a king
You tell me ya still love me, if so then let me go
Will I return or will I burn, never know
Look in my eyes and see the future
But don’t sugar coat it

Listen..
History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes
Same way that these rappers always bite each others flows
Same thing that my n**ga Elvis did with Rock n Roll
Justin Timberlake, Eminem and then Macklemore
While silly n**gas argue over who gon’ snatch the crown
Look around, my n**ga, white people have snatched the sound
This year I’ll prolly go to the awards dappered down
Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile

I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true s**t
Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with
But not Jermaine, my aim too sick
I bang n**ga, I came to bring the pain my brain too quick
You see how I maneuver this game, I ain’t stupid
I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid
And break the chains and change minds
One verse at a time, and claim 2-6
And f**k it, if the sh*e fits
Who’s the king..

We all kings
Kings of ourselves first and foremost
While the people debate who’s the king of this rap game
Here comes lil’ ol’ Jermaine
With every ounce of strength in his veins
To snatch the crown from whoever y’all think has it
But rather than place it on his head as soon as he grabs it
Poof, boom, paow, it’s like magic
With a flash and a bang the crown disintegrates
And falls to the Earth from which it came
It’s done, ain’t gonna be no more kings
Be wary of any man that claims
Because deep down he clings onto the need for power
In reality he’s a coward
Ultimately he’s scared to die
And sometimes so am I

But when I’m in tune with the most high
I realize, the fear lies in my lack of awareness of the other side
Today I know that we are the same, are the same
You and I
Different kind of skin
Different set of eyes
Two different minds
But only one God

It’s for all the kings
Because deep down every poet just wants love…
