Chorus:
...
And I stay...
Cause I do what I need.
And that's the reason that they love me,
Cause I've been making money,
The keys to my city!
It feels good to be on top, I got the keys to the city!
This is how it feels to be a big shot!

Listen!
... black Mercedes... all my ladies free,
...
I turn this on to lesbians,
Make a fuck or dust a...
Get here for one hour, smell the blood and catch my second...
I've been of my...
But she probably just had sex with him,
She's at your possession,
You cannot protect her...
I'm central as my residence,
Barely like those...
And if I'm not the king,
It is I'm must be the president.
O.M.G I'm in a shit!
Money is my medicine,
Shut up to my niggers in a... text messages.
Shut up to them bitches getting here in their...
... make sex scenes so irrelevant.
Forget about the... we took, I now we can,
Rebel in this white mass world until they burry him.
Being broke is so un-American,
That's why I'm screaming all money, till I can't!
Nigger!

Chorus:
...
And I stay...
Cause I do what I need.
And that's the reason that they love me,
Cause I've been making money,
The keys to my city!
It feels good to be on top, I got the keys to the city!
This is how it feels to be a big shot!

Pull up the old school, me and low Shady Blue,
...
Ten seconds to my lawyer, said a prayer so we prevail,
Jealous jiggers hated that,
I rather see a nigger feel.
...
... a nigger be for real,
...
Hit the gas, we're out of here!
Oh no, wait! A fox wheels, spinning like we got a meal,
... she's got as feeling like we're all for...
They now we got down to steel,
And bitches know we got the bill,
... been here daily, try my baby, momma crazy,
Name a Nigger that could fade me,
Pussy dad does not persuade me,
I swear I'll make them hate me,
Plus we never shop at Macy's.
Luis Vuitton, Gucci, maybe,
... blue Mercedes,
... from your faces,
Spinning faster, dogging cases,
... bring the cases, that's what we told the waitress,
... for all you try to play us.

Chorus:
...
And I stay...
Cause I do what I need.
And that's the reason that they love me,
Cause I've been making money,
The keys to my city!
It feels good to be on top, I got the keys to the city!
This is how it feels to be a big shot!

Plus, plus, straight pants,...
You thought that I'll be dead doing life, cause what I rap is true.

Just another you know who,
Sam had some time to do,
And yea, Steve is cool, but I heard Mick used an animal.
Fuck with what they were talking about,
We just did what we had to do,
It became the most valuable, after I dropped that on you tube.
From the West Coast at least, and for the West Coast I speak,
Cause I'm filled with guilt,...
Where I'm supposed to be.
I'll be yours... been this shit,
You all forgot to...
And like the... my pistol will smoke for free.
If money ain't got no on streets,
Got to keep her close to me,
Put that on the man that's on the cross... ,
It wasn't always banking but I speak about it openly,
No shame in my game,
I did my thing, go in... streets.
Who's the hottest on the West,
All you niggers know it's me,
So tell whoever had the luck that Nipsey Hussle stole the key.

Chorus:
...
And I stay...
Cause I do what I need.
And that's the reason that they love me,
Cause I've been making money,
The keys to my city!
It feels good to be on top, I got the keys to the city!
This is how it feels to be a big shot
