JAY-Z & Kanye West – Prime Time lyrics
[Intro: Jay-Z]
We in the time of our lives, baby
Turn the music up
Primetime

[Verse 1: Jay-Z]
Primetime, beat by Dion
A third eon, that's what the fuck we on
More money, 40-year old phenom
My fifteen minutes of fame is stretched beyond
At 42, I'll be better than 24's
I carry the 4-5 master 48 laws
Still wearing my 23's, they can't fuck with the boy
Far as them 16's, I'm 23 up in all
Primetime, riding that 6 deuce
That 9/11, I only subtract the roof
Started in '88, got warm in '92
I landed in '96, that's the year I came through
I hit the club, order some Grey Goose
Switched it for Ciroc to give Puff's stocks a boost
New money, I found a fountain of youth
I'm heading to Miami to fuck up the Fontaine Bleu
A case of Ace... Make it 2
Nigga we rollin', keep the deuce
The night is young, what the fuck we gon' do

[Hook: Jay-Z]
The night is young, what the fuck you wanna do, huh?
The night is young, what the fuck we gon' do, huh?
The night is young, what you really wanna do, huh?

[Verse 2: Kanye West]
Primetime, basking in the lime
Cassius in his prime, coloring out of the line
Cause they don't want nobody that's colored out of the lines
So I'm late as a motherfucker, colored people time
Damn, Yeezy, it all gotta be dimes?
Well Adam gave up a rib, so mine better be prime
Niggas gonna kill me, I swear they better be lying
I never live in fear, I'm too out of my mind
Primetime, never hit these heights
I mean it's like
It's like a first first-class flight, I'm tripping on it
Socks on marble floors, I'm slipping on it
Champagne I'm sipping on, the shit tastes different, don't it?
You know what? You right
It's like the best damn champagne I had in my life
"When you coming home?" That's a text from my wife
I told her run a bubble bath
And float in that motherfucker like a hovercraft
And soak in that motherfucker 'til I call you back
I mean, who says shit like that, and doesn't laugh?

[Hook: Kanye West]
The night is young, what the fuck you wanna do, huh?
The night is young, what the fuck we gon' do, huh?
The night is young, what you really wanna do, huh?
