Kota the Friend – Wolves Lyrics

Wolves Lyrics – Kota the Friend

First quarter, we attackin’ the basket
I’m livin’ life in the moment ’cause it’s ashes to ashes
I got Durant focus, I’m in competition with self
Doing my best with the hand I was dealt
I make a fire and I fan it myself
Weekend in Ibiza, took a holiday in Durban, send my blessings to Madiba
Had to hop back in my Birkin, had to re-up on my Visa
Added charcoal to the furnace, turnin’ sleepers to believers
This is real life, fork in the road, either you peal right or skrrt left
I ain’t the same Kota you first met
Ready for the joker that’s gon’ tell me this my worst yet
Before you even tweet it, I’ll say, “Thank you for the streams”
My son’s schooling worth more than your whole future
So keep those Twitter fingers goin’ and keep on running my views up
Never called a liar by anybody that knew us
I’m the number one supplier of gems, never forget

I can’t lose
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
Yeah

Get it how I live it, I brag with my independence
I look at it like a big middle finger up to the system
Swore I was a rookie, I took his queen with a bishop
People always comin’ at me sideways, king
You niggas pawns, I’m with Hov and Nas controlling the board
This is the good burger, got ’em fighting over the sauce
They spread it word of mouth, verses that he wrote with the Force
And see that I’ma kick it down or you gon’ open the door
I’ll wait a minute but just know that that decision is yours
And if I have to kick it, it won’t be the same as if I didn’t
I’ma move into that room more militant than you thought
With a couple of young silent assassins smilin’ and laughing
Watching me excellin’ like nothin’ you can imagine
Verbiage so compelling, my passion is fuck compassion
Didn’t know I was headed for greatness, I come from madness
Runnin’ for a shot of patience, I’m puttin’ my plan to action

I can’t lose
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
Yeah, yeah

Meditating in Malibu
Told ’em that it’s important we elevate from the avenue
Only speakin’ mentally, making peace with my enemies
We from the same place, it’s safe to say they resemble me
It’s like I felt my bitterness sendin’ me to the end of me
Gave in to addictions like women, D’USSÉ and Hennessy
Ace of spade, lately we celebratin’ in major ways
All about the balance, I’m never stressin’ the day-to-day
Middle of the winter, I be sittin’ on my roof
Breathin’ in the air, feeling solid in my roots
Every thing I’m learning just confirming what I knew
I am working, I am worth it, and I earned what I accrue
Sittin’ my the furnace having dinner with my muse
Got the speakers in the ceiling, I be feeling brand new
I am proud, I am black, there’s nothing I can’t do
I am free, I am me, and that’s all I’m tryna be ’cause

I can’t lose
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
Brought up by the wolves, parted from the pack
Howlin’ at the moon, youngin on my back
Mountains in my view, coming for that food
