Soul Food

Written By: Scolla,Ashton Woods,HeizenBurr!

[Intro]
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
OG, OG, OG
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah
I said this that, this that shit, that hits your soul, that hits your soul
This that, this that shit, that hits your soul, that hits your
I said this that, this that shit, that hits your soul, that hits your soul
In the madness, protect your magic

[Verse 1]
Today I woke up feeling like the man though (huh)
Got a little bit of money and I'm finna roll up this weed
Ain't got two fucks to give and even less for sucker shit
I swear you're talking to the baddest brother
So I'm thinking I might swipe my flex card
Might piss my Ex off
Might call my whole click like lets spend this check y'all
I'm OG and you know that
So grab a frame for my Kodak
This celebrating of elevated sensations, is pimpin' baby
[Chorus]
Now this that, this that shit that hit yo soul that hit yo
Now Now Now, This that, This that shit that hit yo soul that hit yo
I said now, This that, This that shit that hits yo soul that hits yo
Now Now Now, This that shit, That shit that hit yo soul that hit yo
Hey!

[Verse 2]
I left footprints on the ceiling, tryna stay a step above
My girl's sun bathing on the moon, While I'm moonwalking on the sun
Cheers to my niggas that was with me from the jump
Thanks to the people down to catch me from the fall
This for them niggas down to meet me with the pump
And this for me praying that I never have to call
And I don't know why, I love love but it suits me just fine
I'ma treat you like a beauty of mine
Such a fool, Such a fool
Dumb enough to know the truth
Wise enough to know there's more that we can do
In this world of mine

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Supersize my greens
Make that there with some good loving
Feed the child in my dreams
Tell em this about time good's coming
Free yourself, Touch the world
Kill the hate, Love the girl
Move something
Take a fall, Learn to fly
Talk to God, Touch the high
Do Something

[Bridge]
I
Stayed down til I came up
Broke Bread with my stay true niggas
Thank God that I ain't you niggas
Thank God for this day I
Stayed down til I came up
Broke Bread with my stay true niggas
Thank God that I ain't you niggas
Thank God for this plate dog

Feed my mind, feed my soul
I can't get enough and
I won't get enough of the love
Love
Love like your fearless
And fight to the finish cuz
Love's been a mission in my soul

This a love jones
This a love jones
Oh yeah

This a love jones
This a love jones

I swear

[Chorus]

Stare

Written By: Scolla

[Intro]
Uh, Yo Ifenyi Tell OG Barry Gordy I'm feeling like the future of motown music nigga (laughs)
Yeah

They just staring and whispering
They just staring and whispering
Everybody's staring and whispering
They just staring, uh uh uh hold up, hold up, hold up
[Verse 1]
I'm different, hell yeah I'm different, there's no doubt I love it/
I'm that sore thumb stickin when I'm out in public//
I look at every bar of skill and feel like I'm above it//
B.Hef told me go take the world, thats why I'm out here thuggin//
That same dude that the doubters swore would amount to nothing//
Is the topic of every who's the next to pop discussion//
Bloggers recognizing me the same way that the fans do//
I don't sweat critics criticizing tghey just fans too//
You only waste breath on what you care for//
Or what you find intrigues you, thats what I'm there for//
I'm on current rise so high I wouldn't dare fall///
But I came from the bottom so its something I'm prepared for//
My names something like a cannonball// (cannonball)
Jumped in, made you feel my presence after all//
You would swear that I pee'd in the pool///
I'm just warming up what seems to be cool//
Thats why

[Chorus]
Everybody's staring (oh, oh) and whispering (oh, oh, oh)
They just staring (oh, oh, oh) and whispering (oh, oh, oh)
Everybody's staring (oh, oh) and whispering (oh, oh, oh)
They just staring (oh, oh, oh) and whispering (oh, oh)

[Verse 2]
I stopped giving a fuck along time ago, a virgin to my feelings//
Except when I'm with my mama though, I love her more than living//
See I know where I'm tryna go, but I've been under pressure//
But told that pressure makes diamonds so I'd hate to handle lesser//
Nigga fess up, you know what I do is more that average//
I know I'm nice but I see that this game bout more than talent//
That why I'm grinding to give em something that they can talk about//
I'm on a fight to the finish, fuck tryna talk it out//
Whats up with everybody complicating life//
Then again beauty lies in what's simply complicated right// (right) (right)
This is why, I enjoy the journey taken//
I ain't worried bout the struggle I'm determined I'ma make it//
I'ma Detroit boy ever body know we bout mo//
Everything I do all of G niggas will vouch for//
Everybody's focused on the one thats in the lead//
So Thats why they pay attention to my team
Thats why

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Yeah
Sounds like some real Tears & Triumphs type shit right here
They waiting on my every move
All eyes on me, I'm feeling something like Pac, uh
Well that's the life I chose
Or what Jay say, "Rather The Life That Chose Me" (laughs)
Uh, Young
