I don’t even charge n**as for the verse, I’m doing this sht because I’m inspired to do it. And like, that’s a cool way for me to address, like, there’s a thing going on if n***as think I get like $2,000 a word. Like, bro … Yeah, I’m not charging n***as because I just want to be on the song. I wouldn’t do that.”
