[Intro: Swizz Beatz] This shit make you wanna talk crazy, crazy, crazy I’m tryin’ to… Kayfa ḥal-uk? Kayfa ḥal-uk, habibi?
[Verse 1: Jay Electronica & JAY-Z] Once upon a time there was a likkle yout, the cub of a lion A stowed away captive, a long way home from Zion The dove Prince sang about in “Purple Rain” cryin’ To the midget you heard tale of on the shoulders of the giant Listen, I named my son, Sir, so you gotta call my son, “Sir” That boy already knighted, he ain’t even out his romper You speakin’ on the kingdom, you better watch your tongue, sir I send you where you never been, you forget where I’m from, sir? That gossip I send bald heads, Lou Gossett out the gun, sir I’m brazy, I’m so brazen, I’m “Raisin in the Sun” sir You can catch this broad daylight, you know the Kingdom come, sir That wheel inside the wheel, a half a mile in circumference It’s the return of the Mahdi, it’s the return of the Akhis It’s the return of the lost and found tribe of Shabazz, the Annunakis It’s the return of Mr. Shakur spittin’ out phlegm at paparazzi That’s my new style
[Chorus: Travis Scott] Blinding (Hit-Boy) Blinded by the light See the stars and our sun
[Verse 2: Jay Electronica & JAY-Z] The gift that keeps givin’ like Babushka Kush crushed up in the studio, rollin’ Kate Bush up Extra, extra, it’s Mr. Headlines Who signed every contract and missed the deadlines 40 days, 40 nights, tryna live up to the hype It’s the road less traveled, it’s the one who missed the flights Hov hit me up like, “What, you scared of heights? Know your sister tired of workin’, gotta do her something nice” I’m like, “Don’t he know I stay up for Falon late nights?” She need bread, she need rice, she need threads, she need ice Either tell it to my bank account or say it to the dice When I lay down in my bed it’s like my head in the vice When I look inside the mirror all I see is flaws When I look inside the mirror all I see is Mars In the wee hours of night, tryna squeeze out bars Bismillah, just so y’all could pick me apart?
[Chorus: Travis Scott] Blinding Blinded by the light See the stars and our sun
