lyrics

Say less...

V1
Who am I to talk? Actually I’m paid to do just that
Hit’em with just facts, truth ugly as muskrats
Been in the lab just cookin’ up tracks
Tight lip for a nice bit, this ain’t a come back, it Ong Bak
I’m Jaa, Tony with beats and flows instead knees and ‘bows
But there’s no need to boast, don’t need my ego stroked
My tracks record’s my interpreter
Good with supporters y’all be thirstin’ for the worshippers
Namaste! I’ma play my role like Maharshla
No impact without an act, get to working bruh
Turn it up, the moment i said less my streaming spiked
Earn enough, but I can’t exit ‘til my team is right
Everyone’s a boss. They ain’t paying nobody
Everyone’s a gangsta but they ain’t no Gotti
Everybody say they know the code but they straight snitching
Everybody know a lot but they action say different

HOOK
Every post don't need a comment.
Every pic don't need a like.
Everyone don't need an audience
And every open mouth don't need a mic
Say Less
Ain’t what you know it’s what you do
So let the work you put in be the proof
Say Less
You ain’t gotta tell me that you’re real
In time everything will be revealed
Say Less


V2
I ain’t gotta tell you, you follow my drift
But it’s a race to the top, many op for a lift
Wanna tell you ‘bout their drive and hope you offer a tip
Then turn around and act you like ain’t come along for the trip
But you was there ‘fore they were talkin’ their shit and showboatin’
Just floatin with no wind in their sails, no motion
Illusionist, Penn & Teller I can pen it better
Broke as fuck at the ball, damn you slippin Cinderella
Just a image seller, stock photos, they are not thorough
Claim to be the realest ever, who gon vouch for ya
Not a soul! Your own people hardly believe you
We see more than we hear and you saying more than you need to.
Everyone’s a boss. They ain’t paying nobody
Everyone’s a gangsta but they ain’t no Gotti
Everybody know say they know the code but they straight snitching
Everybody know a lot but they action say different

HOOK
Every post don't need a comment.
Every pic don't need a like.
Everyone don't need an audience
And every open mouth don't need a mic
Say Less
Ain’t what you know it’s what you do
So let the work you put in be the proof
Say Less
You ain’t gotta tell me that you’re real
In time everything will be revealed
Say Less

V3
I’m just trying to give you some game
Don’t matter if I yell it, they never hear what I’m saying
Then a stranger roll up and damn near tell’em the same
And they totally forget that I put that shit in they’re brain
Their too close to the picture they can’t even see the frame
And how I brought it together so why bother to explain
I put the plan into action now my passion turned to gains
And now they circling back so I can help them do the same
Say no more!

HOOK
Say Less
Ain’t what you know it’s what you do
So let the work you put in be the proof
Say Less
You ain’t gotta tell me that you’re real
In time everything will be revealed
Say Less
