(Edsclusive)
(Honorable court)
Yeah
(For all the time hated, now I ball)
(Now I ball)

I ain't never had no money (money)
I been out here tryna get me a way (a way)
Ain't nobody helped when I was hungry
Fake friends, they just slippin' away
But now I got it, so I ball, man, like every day (hey)
For all the times nobody helped me
Said I ball on you, man, like every day (hey), hey
For all the times you hated
Man, I ball, man, like every day (hey, yeah)
Until the day I pass away
I say I ball on you, man, like every day (hey)
Man, like every day

Man, I be watching time go by in an icy Cartier
Paper flying like a paper plane
I'm tryna get lost in the mansion like a maze (yeah)
A money tree'll take your stress away (hey)
Ball on a bitch like every day (day)
Call me coach, gotta switch up plays
Spend a lil' money, don't care how it's made (made)
Drop-top coupe catch sun rays
Started off without it, gotta get it one day
Doing two hundred on the runway
Got a bad chick and she rippin' the runway
It's Super Bowl Sunday
Rip out my heart, you're a demon
I get the money for real, I'm the reason
Wide body come through unpolitely
I ride around in exotic
Wake me up, 'cause I gotta be dreaming
If only my dawgs could see this

I ain't never had no money (money)
I been out here tryna get me a way
Ain't nobody helped when I was hungry
Fake friends, they just slippin' away
But now I got it, so I ball, man, like every day (hey)
For all the times nobody helped me
Said I ball on you, man, like every day (hey), hey
For all the times you hated
Man, I ball, man, like every day (hey)
Until the day I pass away
I say I ball on you, man, like every day (hey)
Man, like every day

My whole team in the huddle (beatin' the buzzer)
I done caught over a gazillion plays (plays, yeah)
A legend now, not in the making (making)
Breakin' records, these are things we celebrate (yeah)
It took a L to keep you humble (humble)
All that money start coming in lakes (lakes)
I drive the 'Rari through the tunnel (tunnel)
I need a passport, I'm ridin' foreign plates (plates, ooh)

I ain't never had no money (money)
I been out here tryna get me a way (a way)
Ain't nobody helped when I was hungry
Fake friends, they just slippin' away
But now I got it, so I ball, man, like every day (hey)
For all the times nobody helped me
Said I ball on you, man, like every day (hey), hey
For all the times you hated
Man, I ball, man, like every day (hey)
Until the day I pass away
I say I ball on you, man, like every day (hey)
Man, like every day

I used to burn CDs and pass 'em around
I used to email the venues and ask 'em
If I could be opening act for the rappers that's passin' through town
I used to be the one kids in my city was laughin' about
I used to envision everything happening now
I used to ride the bus and listen to Kendrick Lamar
He just liked the video that I made back when I started to study his bars (yeah)
I'd like to think that he probably related as someone that's come so far
As someone that wanted it badly, then went and got it and turned to a star
Overly dedicated (uh)
A title that resonated (uh)
I wanna be recognized
I wanna be decorated
Truthfully, back then, I couldn't imagine a life where I never made it
Go 'head and let 'em hate it (let 'em hate it)

I ain't never had no money (money)
I been out here tryna get me a way (a way)
Ain't nobody helped when I was hungry
Fake friends, they just slippin' away
But now I got it, so I ball, man, like every day (hey)
For all the times nobody helped me
Said I ball on you, man, like every day (hey), hey
For all the times you hated
Man, I ball, man, like every day (hey, yeah)
Until the day I pass away
I say I ball on you, man, like every day (hey)
Man, like every day

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
