"Yeah, you know, that's what I was explaining to someone
I said I didn't mind getting jerked, because I was like
I just want my record on the radio, I just wanna shoot videos"
"And get it poppin'"
"I just wanna get poppin', look, I don't care
Take my publisher, I don't know what that is anyway
You know what I'm saying?
Like just take my shit so I can have a video
And songs on the radio, I'll figure it out later"
"That's crazy, man"
"And then the next album, I'll start
And I'm like, damn, these checks saying ain't like
The checks that I'm used to niggas seeing
I might be enabled to get four or five cars
Or jewelry or things that I wanted to get
So I'm like, let me figure what's the loophole in this shit
Why I'm not winning"
"But isn't it crazy that it makes you question
What kinda friends you had back then
Because they weren't telling you how the business was running, they were just"
"See that goes to show, maybe they wasn't never really my friends"
