Token – Rich For You lyrics
[Verse 1]
All the kids I used to hang with out on Salem
Tell everybody that I popped off and I left 'em
They tell they college friends they knew me way before
But now I never hit 'em back, I'm self-absorbed
They probably say I only care about the money
'Cause that's what everybody's thinkin' when you're buzzin'
They talk about me like I've had it made forever
Like we didn't sneak in and steal shit together
Growing up, I still think I had it pretty easy
But everyone who's rich, I thought they were greedy
My grandparents had a mansion and their son would get his lights cut off
They never helped at all, that stayed with me
And Daddy, I don't mean to be so rude
But I worry 'bout you now, to tell the truth
So tell them that I'm selfish and I'm stingy
I'm a money hungry sissy
But I'm only gon' be rich, for you

[Chorus]
But don't you feel bad, it's okay
I do it all for you, my friend
Don't you feel good when it go away
When it's on me instead
All eyes on me, all hands on me, all blame on me, yeah
All rain on me, if the ship just sink, then shame on me

[Verse 2]
I got a homie who's a rapper, if he's good, it doesn't matter
Goes to work, I hit the booth and then he picks me up right after
Been kickin' it for years before I had my own career
Shit I was climbin', he was climbin', he just took a different ladder
Just imagine, he's been stagnant
But now his younger friend blew up
Like how the fuck that happened?
You think he'd be bitter, actually he's not
'Cause when his friend is A-list he thinks he gon' be on
They gon' make it top together, they gon' hit the club together
They gon' probably sign together, fuck the label up together
They gon' hit the stage together, they gon' tour the world together
They gon' meet some groupie chicks, then break up with their girls together
I ain't even mad, maybe I would do the same shit
I look into his eyes and I can see that expectation
Nah, I can't escape it, that's what I signed to
So I guess if I'm famous, I'll be famous for you

[Chorus]
But don't you feel bad, it's okay
I do it all for you, my friend
Don't you feel good when it go away
When it's on me instead
All eyes on me, all hands on me, all blame on me, yeah
All rain on me, if the ship just sink, then shame on me

[Verse 3]
My family is like a team within that home
But siblings compete together, isn't that so?
My mama grew up as a middle child in a middle-class home
They moved out and went on different paths alone
My two uncles went to college and killed it
They became the success story, the novel they scripted
My mama went to college but she dropped out and missed it
'Cause she was having some new problems that she oughta just deal with
And man, I hate the way she talk like she don't think she a winner
I study her at the table at these holiday dinners
My uncles talk about the jobs, but they only ask their sister
'Bout her soon-to-be-famous son, 'cause wow, he's a killer
She's so proud, and I can see the pride in her
And that shit makes me so happy that I could cry with her
Now she becomes the focus and she deserve it too
So if I'm a success, I'm a success, for you

[Chorus]
But don't you feel bad, it's okay
I do it all for you, my friend
Don't you feel good when it go away
When it's on me instead
All eyes on me, all hands on me, all blame on me, yeah
All rain on me, if the ship just sink, then shame on me

[Outro]
If the ship just sink, then shame on me
