You know what I am
You know what I do well at least I thought you knew
They call me Pusha 
Damn
I take you like a slap in the face
 Every time the bass is mentioned like I had bad intentions 
Listen, I thought love was given 
So for you I did those things you were missing  Never have to say
 Please gimme borrow 
As long as I got yay
And two semi autos 
And connects in the jets
Like wetback Carlos
I ain't askin' you to follow 
Just think 'bout tomorrow  Please 

I should have known by the way that you stared  Eyeing passes by like you're rich but life ain't fair
But you make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)

I can't help if I'm a thug and I'm popular 
I think that come along with driving a shocking car
 Watch the coke light up they life
The rocks with stars 
Had fiends talking crippled 
'cause they locked they jaw
Aw Pusha T you think it's cool that you deal
Bout as cool as that breeze on the beach in Brazil 
As long as fiends want pain
Then I'm gon' slang 
When my financial change
Then I'm gon' change 

I should have seen in the way you touched my hand
 Shuffling your car keys
But sounded like a gentleman 
But ya make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)

You don't know it yet
It's the life that I live that you love
And the fact that I'm thug that had you holding techs
When you really didn't know what it was
But you did it out of love
Shit
Far from deprived 
Give you all of you fetishes 
Like treacherous necklaces, beget etceteras
 Colors coming out make your head spin like exorcist  Spending bright futures in the hood
All them no good messages 

I should have heard it in the way you said my name
 While I analyzed your tone you were formulating games
But you make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
Make my record skip
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)
I would have never talked to you if I had known you was a popular thug
Hey, popular thug (you're damn right)

Hey, popular thug
