GOAT Lyrics – Symba
I mean, I’ma just take the conversation we was havin’ and put it in rap form
I got my chains on too
They ask, who’s the best MC, Biggie, JAY-Z, or Nas?
Aubrey Graham, Jermaine Cole, Kendrick Lamar?
Weezy F., Eminem, or Tupac Shakur?
Well, I think it’s ’bout time that I make a mention, the boy
I ain’t even dropped an album, I still ain’t been on a tour
I ain’t got no platinum records and I ain’t won no awards
You know you fight uphill battles while pushin’ the culture forward
And the shit they neglect you for make the legends respect you more
See, now the game is based off narratives and comparisons
Anything could be true if you get enough people sharin’ it
How could the facts be faced when this shit is opinion-based?
Anyone can enter the race with a mic and an interface
Yeah, that’s why I think I’m the G.O.A.T.
I got the glow and the greatest flow
I inspired niggas to push more than dope, I gave ’em hope
Just because you rap like you woke don’t mean you dope
You preachin’ to the choir ’bout some shit we already know
Man, niggas roped
We ain’t tryna hear all them Malcolm quotes
But if that’s what floats your boat, don’t let me sink your ship
It’s hard enough to catch a wave while tryna anchor this shit
Man, so what makes a nigga the G.O.A.T.
Besides the world relatin’ to everything that he wrote?
You gotta keep a loaf while keepin’ culture afloat and
And not just musically, I’m talkin’ all inclusively
Endorsements, fashion, movies roles to act in
To be a G.O.A.T., you gotta be great outside your passion
And you can’t act the of-all-time if it ain’t classic
Most of this shit be passive
Just a bunch of fucking captions
Pshh, I guess I’m askin’
How could a nigga be the greatest of all time
If LeBron never got to face MJ in his prime?
Or Montana never got to take the field vs. Tom?
If Mike Tyson never got to see Ali in his day?
How could Floyd be the G.O.A.T. if he ain’t see Sugar Ray?
Shh, imagine Rakim over 808s
Or NBA YoungBoy doin’ a song with Mase
That’s why I feel like we should just end all of these debates
Because everybody’s a G.O.A.T. because everyone made a way
This hip-hop shit made a way for us to be great
We no longer pushin’ weight, but we still fightin’ for fame
Shh, that’s why we all a G.O.A.T.
If you old and you dope, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
If you ain’t die in your ghetto, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
You made it out the streets, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
If you bought your mama house, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
You post bail for the bros, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
Take care of your kids, my nigga, you the G.O.A.T.
Ain’t nobody the G.O.A.T. because we all a G.O.A.T.
