Joey Bada$$ – Shine Lyrics

Shine By Joey Bada$$

(Shine)
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, you know that
Bitch, you know that (You know I gotta shine)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Bitch, you know I gotta (Shine)
Summertime shit (Yeah)
Put some charcoal on the grill and all that shit
You know I gotta (Shine)
Express your mind, baby
My life, my life, my life, my life, yeah

This be them young OG vibes, think like I’m Steve Jobs
Malachite stone, see the world all through STEEZ eyes
Dubai sand still stuck in my Vans still (Right)
I let the sand spill ’til I can’t stand still (Shine)
I got no time to waste (No), life is fast-paced (Yup)
Keep the tracks runnin’, never come in last place (Rrah)
How’s your bitch when I come around? She’s not safe (Nope)
No, she be leavin’ with me ’cause you got bad taste
She need a back brace (Yup), I need a backrub (What else?)
I tell her, “Put that face down and that ass up” (Yeah)
And then I smash her (Yeah), and then I pass her (Yeah)
Back to you, she gon’ tell you the truth so don’t ask her (Shine)
Hop in the Ghost and go Casper (Go Casper)
Space coupe with a rocket on me, I won’t hesitate to blast ya
Fuck buyin’ cars, though, I’m buyin’ back my masters
‘Cause it ain’t just the cash that I’m after

Had to flashback (Back), I got a lot upon my mind (Yeah)
Not enough time (Right), so I’ve been up on my grind (What else?)
Make them bitches fall in line (Mhm)
When you say my name (Yeah), don’t forget the dollar sign (No)

Bitch, you know I gotta, know I gotta
(Shine, when I do, what I do, when I’m doin’)
Money on my mind so you know I’m always grinding, yeah
(Shine, when I feel, what I feel, when I’m feelin’)
All my honeys dimes, I might put her in some diamonds
(Shine, when I do, what I do, when I’m doin’)
Swear your stars in line, everything is perfect timing
(Shine, when I feel, what I feel, when I’m feelin’)
Said everything is perfect timing (Yeah)
That’s why a nigga steady shine (My life, my life, my life, my life), uh

Never let ’em tell you what your worth is (Yeah)
Respect gotta be earned, it can never be purchased (Never)
I done made ten million spittin’ verses (Facts)
And still ain’t losin’ sight of my purpose (Woo)
Still sheddin’ light beneath the surface (Yeah), constant elevation (Uh-huh)
Givin’ em revelations they don’t teach in them Church (Yeah)
First things first is I charge for the service (What else?)
Gotta keep a steady dollar just to pacify the splurges (Right)
Satisfy the urges (Yeah), tell you my fee
It’d probably make you niggas nervous (Come on), seven-figure purchase (Uh-huh)
Went from buildin’ with blocks to buildin’ the block
Now I’m talkin’ with my pops about some buildings to cop, nigga
I had to thicken the plot (Yeah), uh
Hit the pocket up and straight fill it with knots (Uh-huh)
I went to Greg Yuna for the watch but not the one with the rocks
‘Cause it ain’t ’bout what you paid, it’s about what you got, nigga (Shine)

Yeah, I got a lot upon my mind (Yeah)
Not enough time (Facts), so I’ve been up on my grind (Yeah)
Make them bitches fall in line (Yeah)
When you say my name (Yeah), don’t forget the dollar sign (No)

Bitch, you know I gotta, know I gotta
(Shine, when I do, what I do, when I’m doin’)
Money on my mind so you know I’m always grinding, yeah
(Shine, when I feel, what I feel, when I’m feelin’)
All my honeys dimes, I might put her in some diamonds
(Shine, when I do, what I do, when I’m doin’)
Swear your stars in line, everything is perfect timing
(Shine, when I feel, what I feel, when I’m feelin’)
Said everything is perfect timing
That’s why a nigga steady shine (My life, my life, my life, my life)
