837K views165

    [Verse 1]
    We are not the same, I am too reckless
    I'm not tryna go in that direction
    These niggas, they been doin' too much flexin'
    And they about to call the wrong attention
    And I don't got no patience, no more testin'
    I do shit how I want, don't need no blessin'
    XO niggas ain't nothin' to mess with
    Nobody stoppin' us, oh no, we destined
    And everybody 'round you is so basic
    I'm never rockin' white, I'm like a racist
    I don't drink my liquor with a chasin'
    That money is the only thing I'm chasin'
    And some dope dimes on some coke lines
    Gimme head all night, cum four times
    Baby girl just wanna smoke a pound
    Do an ounce, get some dick
    Tell her friends about it
    [Hook]
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell 'em what you know, what you seen
    How I roll, how I be on the low
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it
    I'm that nigga with the hair
    Singin' 'bout poppin' pills, fuckin' bitches, livin' life so trill
    [Verse 2]
    Last year I did all the politickin'
    This year Imma focus on the vision
    I think these hoes deserve another fixin'
    I'm talkin' 'bout the ones from the beginnin'
    Don't believe the rumours, bitch, I'm still a user
    I'm still rockin' camo and still roll with shooters
    I'm a villain in my city, I just made another killin'
    Imma spend it all on bitches
    And everybody fuckin', everybody fuckin'
    Pussy on the house, everybody fuckin'
    Man, I miss my city, man, it's been a minute
    MIA a habit, Cali was the mission
    Cruise through the west-end in my new Benz
    I'm just tryna live life through a new lens
    Drivin' by the streets I used to walk through
    When I had no crib, I guess you call that shit a miracle
    [Hook]
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell 'em what you know, what you seen
    How I roll, how I be on the low
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it
    I'm that nigga with the hair
    Singin' 'bout poppin' pills, fuckin' bitches, livin' life so trill
    [Verse 3]
    My cousin said I made it big and it's unusual
    She tried to take a selfie at my Grandma's funeral
    Used to roam on Queen, now I sing Queen street anthems
    Used to hate attention, now I pull up in that wagon
    And I was broken, I was broken, I was so broke
    I used to roam around the town when I was homeless
    Me and Lamar would rob a nigga for his Jordans
    And flip it just to get these hoes another nose fix
    Now we get faded when we want, girl, we got choices
    Lay them on the fuckin' table, we got choices
    And if they wanna fuck my niggas, they got choices
    They told me not to fall in love, that shit is pointless
    Yeah, that shit is pointless
    They told me not to fall in love, that shit is pointless
    Yeah, that shit is pointless
    It's only meant to fall in love, that shit is pointless
    [Hook]
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell 'em what you know, what you seen
    How I roll, how I be on the low
    Go tell your friends about it (About it)
    Go tell your friends about it
    I'm that nigga with the hair
    Singin' 'bout poppin' pills, fuckin' bitches, livin' life so trill

    9. Shanahan Nagendran

      the fact that Kanye made this and didn't think it was great enough to use for himself and gave it to the weekend is freaking crazy

      1. Edward Lawla

        @Lethe of Wisdom bruh are you deaf?

    11. Eric De La Cruz

      "They told me not to fall in love That shit is pointless "....

    12. Richard San

      Bro... That intro is fire 🔥🔥🔥

    13. Coachhere

      I still dont understand the funeral line..

      1. Veevo

        “My cousin said I made it big and it’s unusual” , obviously unexpected that the homeless Abel who was bumming it out on the streets of Toronto made it this far his cousin exclaims. “She tried to take a selfie at my grandmas funeral” , Abel’s grandma, someone who was a great importance in his life had passed away and at the funeral his cousin asks for a selfie because of who he has become. The lines are connected; the cousin sees Abel in his rise to stardom and wants a selfie even though a funeral would be the last place to ask for one, especially when The Weeknd is grieving over his grandma whom he was very close to.

      2. carolyn porter

        He’s saying how someone who raised him passed and he’s trying to grief but his cousin over here asking for a picture to post and be like ooo yea my cousin The Weeknd

      The distorted bit at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="169">2:49</a> is actually Kanye. He produced this and that's his voice

      1. sonti yo

      2. John C

        Yup Kanye’s a fuckin legend

      3. Rinne5 Edits

        it has his vibe tbh

      4. Pablo Calderon

        @Retro Isaac2x nah that sort of sound is like a staple with Kanye because he does it with voices, for example in one of his songs he uses almost that exact same sound edit:the song is runaway about 5 minutes in

      5. talia 17

      Wow wery nice and turkish lyrics Biz aynı değiliz, ben çok umursamazım Bu şekilde olmaya çalışmıyorum Bu zenciler çok fazla gösteriş yapıyorlardı Yanlış dikkati üzerlerine çekmek üzereler [ reklamı gizle ] Ve sabrım kalmadı, daha fazla test etmek yok İstediğim boku yaparım, dua etmeye ihtiyacım yok XO zencilerine kimse bulaşamaz Kimse bizi durduramaz, oh hayır bizim kaderimiz ortak Ve senin etrafındaki herkes çok basit Asla beyaz giymem, ırkçı gibiyim Sağlam içtikten sonra likör içmem Ve para peşinde olduğum tek şey Ve kokain çizgilerinde havalı bozuk paralar Tüm gece bu kafayı yaşat bana, dört kere boşal Bebeğim tek istediğim bir pound çekmek Bir ons yap, bir yarrak bul Arkadaşlarına bundan bahset Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset (Bundan) Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset (Bundan) Git ve bildiklerini anlat, gördüklerini Nasıl kafayı bulduğumu, düşükken nasıl yaptığımı Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset (Bundan) Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset (Bundan) Git ve bildiklerini anlat, gördüklerini Nasıl kafayı bulduğumu, kokaini nasıl bitirdiğimi Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset (Bundan) Git ve arkadaşlarına bundan bahset Ben o saçlı zenciyim Uyuşturucular, sürtükleri becermek ve yaşadığımız hayat çok gerçek
