Honestly, I think it was around ’09
The time I got the XXL cosign (Yeah)
Remember thinkin’, “I should been on the last couple years, n*gga, both times” (Both times)
For the first time, felt like I was walkin’ in my truth
Cold day in NYC, nervous, walkin’ in the room
Bumped into the coolest n*gga, Wiz, he like, “Dude
You made it here too? You know I really f*ck with you”
