Dreamville - Starting 5 Lyrics
feat. Lute, Cozz & Omen


Ayy, Lute
Can you do me a favor?
I need you to talk that talk like a Charlotte nigga would
Carolina proud of these bars (Gangsta)

Rap niggas corny, this ain’t your only vessel
Niggas flash without the ice, they ain’t nothing special, shit
You go through levels, niggas swear they helped you
Put in the work, I promise God gon’ bless you
Every day, this what I tell my nephew
I lay low ’cause I can’t relate
I’m good at ghosting ’cause I’m that nigga in my creative space
Hurt less when you out the way
You got your fame ’til you not the wave
Shout out my name, nigga, I’m gon’ wave
Never too good to show you where I came
Spit that flame, nigga switchin’ lanes, shit
I spit pain ’cause I’m takin’ aim, shit
My brother called, said he seen me on the TV screen
When I was sixteen, they ain’t think I planned to be anything
Don’t wire checks, I want the cash, I like my money green
I’m ’bout to flex like I’m Money Team
My old bitches be perplexed ’cause they ain’t support the dreams (Damn)

I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, ain’t no Judas in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, I got shooters in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, ain’t no Judas in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, I got shooters in my starting five

Drive-bys where I reside often
Beautiful black lives sit inside of that coffin
We gotta realize it’s toxic
F a stick-up, put the sticks up, let’s stick together through hardships
We already exhausted
‘Cause along with living as living targets to these officers
Now we gotta watch for any signs of us coughing
And I got asthma, gotta be cautious
Ironic now I can’t run it up
Show money done turned to no money just to sum it up
I ain’t seen the sun in months
But how can I complain when some fathers ain’t seen they sons in months? (Damn)
Some are stuck overseas, some are stuck six feet under us (Damn)
But even through the downs that we seen, we still coming up (That’s right)
God really be loving us, gained strength through pain, we toughened up (Uh-huh)
Yeah, gained strength through pain, I got that tatted
Been through what I been through, you equipped, but I’m not that average, nah (No way)
If you ain’t seen me in months, you gon’ ask, «What happened, Cozz?»
I level up daily because I keep my hands to God

I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, ain’t no Judas in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, I got shooters in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, ain’t no Judas in my starting five
I turned nothing into something, water into wine
I really do this, I got shooters in my starting five

Keep playing with Dreamville’s name
Don’t get Chris Rocked out your socks
Anything can and will happen
Then watch me walk back to my seat
Keep my name out your fuckin’ mouth
(Gangsta Grizzillz)

On this side over here
Godly flows only
Drama

You witnessing the heart of Omen
Everything that y’all release is like DeMar DeRozan
Straight mid, but my art is golden
When you dream like I dream, see, you seem odd
‘Til these hoes lookin’ at you like they seen God
I’m not God, just the best thing that God made
A higher power calling me, that goes beyond faith
A strong blessing, they calm stressin’
Extraordinary person, can’t relate to John Legend
You see, I speak with my chest like Bobby Fischer
Deep as the Mali River
Understand I’m not a role model figure
Beast with the pen, plus my beats like modern Dilla
Peaceful within, but I’m still a Chicago nigga
Intellect that I intel got me out of quiet hell
Thought TDK was dead, bitch? I’m alive and well
I’m better through the try and fail, tell your clientele
I’m just a star, I was carved from Orion’s Belt
Nonchalant ’bout homicide when you desensitized
Niggas incentivized to keep on stealing lives
Put my pain in perspective while I roll pine
Last few years, now I’m back in your starting five

You’re witnessing a dynasty like no other
Dreamville
Welcome to D-Day
