Long Live the Chief Lyrics

Long Live the Chief (首席万岁) - Jidenna

Written by:Julian Nixon/Craig Balmoris/Jidenna Mobisson/Nana Kwabena Tuffuor/Milan Wiley/Eleanor Kateri Tannis

Niggas fighting over rings

Niggas wanna be the king but

 

Long live the chief

 

For a li' ol' thang lil' boys bang bang

 

Long live the chief

 

Niggas fighting over rings

Niggas wanna be the king but

 

Long live the chief

 

Now watch pretty mama while I slang my cane

 

Long live the chief

 

Cockroaches and the rat sh*t

 

Hand me downs with the patches

Mama put a little money in the mattress

Taught me how to make a silver spoon out of plastic

You can either sink swim or be the captain

Get the last word Ima get the last laugh in

Now they say Jidenna why you dressing so classic

I don't want my best dressed day in a casket

You can either lead follow or get out the way

Make a f**kin' move it would make my f**kin' day

Got a 100 year plan you jus' think about today

Always been about time more than been about pay

Can't rump with me

Usain couldn't run with me

Chief come to find you

You don't come for me

At best you can run a lil' company

Ni**a at worst I could run the whole country

Thats right pimp game like a brothel

Thats why I don't judge a niggas hustle

I airbnb the crib like a hostel

Summer rate cheaper because the streets get hostile

Shaka boy this fire from mojave boy

So no I won't record for your homie boy

I turn the party out like a naughty toy

Then I go and hide in plain sight like a lobby boy

Yessuh that's Jidenna on the banner

Ridin' for my niggas gettin' locked up in the slammer

Elders saying everything's a nail to a hammer

And niggas can't spell but we know our instagrammar

 

Well done's better than well said

 

I read niggas well a ni**a well read

 

Really I ain't met nobody smarter

Thats why I got admitted but I still rejected Harvard

I'm the fresh prince in a school where they couldn't read

Mama put me in a school with the Kennedys

When I met Bill Clinton I was seventeen

 

But dead presidents is all my niggas need

 

Dining with the governor's daughter

And her father say I remind him of Obama

I'm the chief diplomat every day

And I'm black and white Janelle Monae

 

Niggas wanna be the king but

Long live the chief

 

For a li' ol' thang lil' boys bang bang

 

Long live the chief

 

Niggas fighting over rings

Niggas wanna be the king but

Long live the chief

 

Now watch pretty mama while I slang my cane

 

 

Long live the chief
