Yeah B
Talk yo' shit 
(Partner let me upgrade you)
How you gon' upgrade me what's higher than number one?
You know I used to beat that block
Now I be's the block (partner let me upgrade you)

I hear you be the block, but I'm the lights that keep the streets on
Notice you the type, that like to keep them on a leash though
I'm known to walk alone, but I'm alone for a reason
Sending me a drink ain't appeasing, believe me
Come harder, this won't be easy
Don't doubt yourself trust me you need me
This ain't a shoulder with a chip, or an ego
But what you think they all mad at me for

You need a real woman in your life, that's a good look
Taking care, home is still fly, that's a good look
And I'mma help you build up your account, that's a good look
Better yet a hood look, ladies that's a good look
When you're in them big meetings for the mills, that's a good look
It take me just to compliment the deals, that's a good look
Anything you cop I'll split the bill, that's a good look
Better yet a hood look, believe me, ladies that's a good look

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neck ties to purple labels
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up) grade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I (up), let me, upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

I can do for you, what Martin did for the people
Ran by the men, but the women keep the tempo
It's very seldom, that you're blessed to find your equal
Still play my part and let you take the lead role, believe me
I'll follow, this could be easy
I'll be the help, whenever you need me
I see your hustle with my hustle, I can keep you
Focused, on your focus I can feed you

You need a real woman in your life, that's a good look
Taking care, home is still fly, that's a good look
I can help you build up your account, that's a good look
Better yet a hood look, ladies that's a good look
When you're in them big meetings, for the mills, that's a good look
It take me just to compliment the deals, that's a good look
Anything you cop, I'll split the bill, that's a good look
Better yet a hood look, believe me, ladies that's a good look

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neck ties to purple labels (have you rocking purple labels)
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up) grade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page, let me upgrade you
Introduce you to some new things, and (Uh!) upgrade (HOV!) you
I can (up), (Uh!) can I (up), let me, (HOV!) upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

I be the d-boy, who infiltrated all the corporate dudes
They call shots, I call all-the-booze
Jacob the jeweler, baubles, Lauraine Schwartz, oughta do
It's big balling baby, when I'm courting you
I'm talking spy bags, and fly pads, and 
Rooms at the Bloomberg, and rumors you on the verge 
Of a new merge, 'cause that rock on ya finger, is like a Tumor
You can't fit ya hand in ya new purse
It's humorous, to me they watching and we just yachting off the island hopping off the Amalfi coast
Mafioso! Oh baby, you ever seen Saturn? 
No, not the car, but everywhere we are
You're sure to see stars, this is high level not eye level
My bezel, courtesy of Audemars
I order yours tomorrow, now look at the time I saved you
Mama, let me upgrade you

Just when you think we had it all
Big ends, condos, collecting cars
Picture your life elevating with me
Make you my project celebrity I keep your name hot in them streets
That little glimpse of light
Makes that diamond really shine
And you already is a star
Unless your flawless
Then ya dynasty ain't complete without a chief, like me

Partner, let me upgrade you, Audemars Piguet you
Switch your neck ties to purple labels 
Upgrade you, I can (up), can I (up) let me upgrade you
Partner, let me upgrade you

Partner, let me upgrade you
Flip a new page
Introduce you to some new things, and upgrade you
I can (up), can I (up), let me, upgrade you?
Partner, let me upgrade you

Audemars Piguet watch, dimples in ya necktie
Hermes briefcase, Cartier tie clips
Silk-lined blazers, diamond creamed facials
VVS, six-star pent suites
Partner, let me, upgrade ya, grade ya
Partner, partner, let me, upgrade you, grade you
Let me, let me, let me, upgrade you, grade you
Partner, partner, partner, let me upgrade you
