When you lose the Queen, n*ggas friendly, dog

I turn lemons into lemonade simply, dog
Old boy and my brother tried to end me, dog
I heard they looking for the old me
A couple of you n*ggas still owe me
You asked for the GOAT so they sent me, sleaze
Tryna lay low, don't tempt me, sleaze
Thirty in the clip will be emptied, sleaze
You bitches still my sons, learn your As and Bs

The MAC's on the line, I ain't talking 'bout the PC
I'm the biggest fish in the pan, I'll do you greasy
All he gotta do is call, I'm in my T-shirt and my drawers
Face down, ass up, I'm already on all fours
Suck his dick through his shorts

I mean a horse, I'm a boss
Yeah, I got the juice and I'm takin' him on a tour
Imitating Nicki while your ghostwriter dissin' me
Leave for two weeks, I got all of my babies missin' me
Never goin' far, never not gon' ball
And I keep my n*ggas bustin' like a draco
He always come back, Big Draco
Still going bad on you stank hoes

They wanted the old Nicki
They wanted the old Onika, so
I had to, uh, get back in my bag
I might drop a freestyle every, um, week till the thing-thing they come
The label hit me said they want the fifth thing-thing, I got in the studio, I did the fifth thing-thing
And then they say "You know, it's time to drop your single" I said "Noooo"
You know radio already tried to blackball a bitch
It's all good cuz when you a legend, when you legendary
You shine no matter what
They get compared to me no matter what
They asked for the GOAT so I came through, bitch
