Notable Quotable – Rick Ross On “Hold On”

10.07.13 4 years ago 28 Comments


“I was pissing my shorts having rich nigga thoughts
Wish I had a pistol before all the friends I done fought
Over night I seen a nigga go get a Carrera
Two weeks later I had to be that boy pallbearer
Young king bury me inside a glass casket
Windex wipe me down for the life after
Crack dealer living like a hoop star
Black marble, white walls in my new spot
Four chains, big studs, a nigga too fly
Top down, tank top, I think I’m 2Pac
So I’m labeled the rebel, nigga get on my level
We were born to be kings, only major league teams
Chasing my paper, couldn’t fathom my wealth
Built a school in Ethiopia, should enroll in myself
God body and mind, food for the soul
When you feeding on hate, you empty, my nigga, it shows
Follow the codes, ain’t no love for these hoes
If you slip and you fall I got you my nigga, hold on
If you right or you wrong, if you riding come on
By the end of this song, can’t be hiding for long
I seen children get slaughtered, niggas’ grandmothers assaulted
Throw a gang sign, dare you do something about it
Fuck copping them foams, when you copping the home
Cop a kilo and have them people on top of your home…”

How many cigs Pusha’s My Name Is My Name ultimately ends up with remains to be seen. One thing for sure, it is a pretty damn good album. “King Push” is some next level shit. Words can’t explain the rush that comes with listening to that song at extremely loud volumes. And we’ve already basically declared “Nosetalgia” one of the songs that will be featured on our year-end roundup of 2013’s best songs. Having noted that, Rick Ross’ feature on the melodic “Hold On” ranks as a definite high point from the LP.

For all the flack The Fat Man catches – some of which deservedly so – he tends to deliver moments on occasion, especially alongside G.O.O.D. artists, that show just how capable of a MC he can be. Between this, “Millions,” “I Still Wanna” and 2009’s “I’m Good (Remix),” Ross and Pusha T’s chemistry is wildly underrated.

* – Good look on reminding me of “I Still Wanna.”
