 LYRICS TO THE BOX BY RODY RICCH

 INTRO

 CHORUS

Pull out the coupe at the lot
Told ’em “Fuck 12, fuck SWAT”
Busting all the bales out the box
I just hit the lid with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, hmm
Pour up the whole damn seal, amma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trippping like the ’80’s
She sucked a nigga soul; gotta cash app
Turn and wipe a nigga nose, say slay slay

I won’t never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?

VERSE 1

I was out back, where the stash at
Cruise the city in a bulletproof cadillac
‘Cause I know you niggas after where the bag at
Gotta move smarter, gotta move harder
Niggas tryna get me for my water
I lay his ass down on my son or my daughter
I had the Draco with me, Dwayne Carter
Lotta niggas out here playing, ain’t balling
I don’t put my whole arm in the rim, Vince Carter (Yeah)
And I know probably get a key for the quarter
Shawty barely seen double C’s I bought her
Got a bitch that’s looking like Aaliyah, she a model
I got the pink slip, all my whips is key-less
Compton, I’m about to get the key to the city
Party, light the city, forget it

CHORUS

Pull out the coupe at the lot
Told ’em “Fuck 12, fuck SWAT”
Busting all the bales out the box
I just hit the lid with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, hmm
Pour up the whole damn seal, amma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trippping like the ’80’s
She sucked a nigga soul; gotta cash app
Turn and wipe a nigga nose, say slay slay

I won’t never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?

VERSE 2

Ha-ha-ha, I’ve been moving ’em out
If  Steelo with me, then he got the blues in the pouch
Took her to the forest, put the wood in her mouth
Bitch don’t wear no shoes in my house
The private I’m flying in, I never wanna fly again
I take my chances in traffic
She sucking on dick no hands with it
I just made the rolling plain like a landing-strip
I’m a 2020 president candidate
I don’t put a honey bands on zimmerman shit
I been moving real gangsta, so that’s why she pick a crib
Shawty call me Crisco, ’cause I pop my shit
Got it out the mud, there’s nothing you can tell me, yeah
When I had the drugs, I was street-wealthy, yeah

CHORUS

Pull out the coupe at the lot
Told ’em “Fuck 12, fuck SWAT”
Busting all the bales out the box
I just hit the lid with the box
Had to put the stick in a box, hmm
Pour up the whole damn seal, amma get lazy
I got the mojo-deals, we been trippping like the ’80’s
She sucked a nigga soul; gotta cash app
Turn and wipe a nigga nose, say slay slay

I won’t never sell my soul, and I can back that
And I really wanna know, where you at, at?
