This is dedicated to all the pretty girls just the pretty girls

And the ugly girls too alright

 

To me you pretty anyway baby that's my baby

 

Didn't I treat you right now didn't I

 

Didn't I give you everything didn't I

Didn't I do the best I could didn't I

 

I tried my best just to be a man didn't I

 

It's that soul man that sh*t you could feel

 

Yeah now let the drums drop

 

Didn't I tell you we was gon' make it to the top ni**a

Didn't I didn't I didn't I

Didn't I tell you this was the new birth of the Roc ni**a

 

Didn't I didn't I say I didn't

Send you that money when ya needed it cause you're my ni**a

 

Didn't I didn't I say I didn't

Didn't I take off the morning just to ride with you yeah

 

This feel like a rebirth another day on this green Earth

I couldn't ask for much more man sh*t could be worse

A fresh pair of jeans a nice clean shirt

I'm on my island in the sun shout out to Weezer

Who can you count on these days in 2017

Lil' ni**a big city bigger dreams

I copped a house out in the hills just to switch scenes

And now they back home saying How could Vic leave

I got Chicago on my mind like I'm Ray Charles

Georgia promise I'll be faithful

I know I missed some action I've been AWOL

I can't smoke witchu everyday I ain't Nate Dogg

I put you up in my crib when you lost your granny house

You never gotta thank me for that man that's family talk

I stayed in the studio I took the Grammys off

And put my soul in this sh*t like I'm Diana Ross

Didn't I didn't I didn't I didn't I

Tell you Joey Purp was finna get the whole city high purple

When you had your daughter I was by your side

Then she took her first breaths watched my niece came alive

I jumped on the first plane when Nikko dad died

I could see him through the window he was flying through the sky

Looking down on you proud of you

 

This is for Mr. Washington I told you we was finna show out for you

Didn't I tell you you was gon' see us at the top ni**a

Didn't I didn't I didn't I

Didn't I tell you this was the new birth of the Roc ni**a

Didn't I didn't I say I didn't

Cop you them plane tickets to fly out cause you're my ni**a

 

Didn't I didn't I didn't I

Didn't I take off the morning just to ride with you yeah

 

After the dark comes the sunset

 

Tell the ones you love you might only get one chance

 

I would give it all back before you slip away from me

That's just what you mean to me that's just what you mean to me

 

I know that I don't call like I should I hope that everything's good

And Mom's doing well at that school in Kenwood

And Lizzie's still happy up at Ballet Memphis

I know she would've been at Grandma's funeral if she could

I rarely share my problems with you but I'm glad to have a father figure

I know I grew up more blessed than a lot of niggas

 

A lot of niggas' pops is like lottery tickets

They bet on them but never get to hear their number call up

Coming home soon as the summer's on

I took the winter off in LA cause the city's too cold

But I'm heating up soon as I drop the album

We on an island like Friday in Robinson Crusoe

Hit the town with my old man make him feel young again

I know he proud of that tattooed son of his

All them tears I put you through when I was a kid

Calls from the police station when I was hustling

You used to hate to hear the phone ring

Now you can't wait to hear the phone ring ain't that a beautiful thing

Thanksgiving pull up with my Beamer and my gold chain

I know I tootin' my own horn like Coltrane

But didn't I didn't I tell you 'bout your baby boy

I used to rock the wife beater like Baby Boy

And now I'm suit and tied up without a day in court

Picked the house out I put up the down payment for it

I caught the first plane when I heard your mama died

I seen her through the window she was flying in the sky

Looking down on you proud of you

This is for my grandma told you we would show out for you

Didn't I tell you you was gon' see us at the top mama

Didn't I didn't I didn't I

Didn't I tell you this was the new birth of the Roc mama

Didn't I didn't I didn't I say I didn't

Jump on the first plane to fly out to see my mama

Didn't I didn't I say I didn't

Didn't I take off the morning to slide on

Didn't I

After the dark comes the sunset

 

To tell the ones you love you might only get one chance

 

I would give it all before you slip away from me

 

That's just what you mean to me that's just what you mean to me
