Step (Remix)

(feat. Danny Brown, Heems & Despot)


Every time I see you in the world you always step to my girl


Back back way back I used to front like I was not one
Couldn’t settle down couldn’t find a girl to hold down
Used to get my roll out hit the spot to stroll out
Now I find one with a handle like the hoedown

Everytime I’m with her dudes always want to stare
I be starring back like you don’t wanna go there
Used to didn’t care now I hit you with a chair
If you just so happen touch a string on her hair

Now me and shorty wop spending more and more time
So since she got my heart then I gotta have her spine
And if any boo try to come for what’s mine
A pair of size nines where the sun don’t shine

The sugar in my kool-aid, Boo, get me through days
Swear to god one day I might watch her throw a bouquet
Said nowhere on this earth, nowhere in this world
I should ever, ever see you stepping to my girl


That’s my old girl, my old girl from college
I always think about her when the leaves turn orange
Yeah, we went to Wesleyan and she scoffed at Vassar
I met her at a wine and cheese, I looked right past her

Apparently, she would notify me right after
I smashed her the first night the first pipes the worst pipe
But after, I satisfied her thirst like, hmm
Tge pastor would satisfy the church, like

She lived in Westco and she studied frescoes
And head to toe she stayed in the best clothes
I represent Queens she would move out to Brooklyn
Never thought that she would have her precious heart tooken

By a shy brown guy from Bellerose that stayed in shell-toes
Until hell froze her freckles dance on her porcelain skin
It’s like she’s got a special force within
And I been high but ain’t no higher place then alongside her by the fireplace


Act like you ain’t even seen me standing next to her
I’ll tie your kicks together if you ever try and step to her
Must be why you trippin when I ask you why you stressin her
Passing notes and texting her I’m about to shoot the messenger

Used to smash, slap em on the ass and go away
They ask when imma call em and i hit em with a poker face
Coldest shoulder known to blow a load then leave em froze and skate
Magnum wrapper in the trash I told them nothing gold can stay

Who’s she? Guess I turned over a new leaf
Now I’m choosing groups A through D over groupies
Lose sleep lately only counting on these two sheep
You and me baby skippin town up on these coupe seats

Must’ve broke the mold when they made you
Probably broke a nail or two flippin off these lame dudes
Hollerin in plain view awesome what’s your name boo
Barely had a dollar and a dream but it came true


The gloves are off
The wisdom teeth are out
What you on about?
I feel it in my bones
I feel it in my bones

Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl
