Verse 1: Cardi B
Nah, this that hot sh*t
Jimmy Snuka off the top rope, superfly sh*t (Fly)
Might get in the tub with all my ice on some ‘Pac sh*t (Hot)
Either way you slice it, bottom line, I’m the top b*tch
New Chanel, I rock it, twist and it ain’t even out yet
All this jewelry at the grocery store, I’m obnoxious
Bought a home and closing on another, I know I’m blessed
Everybody wanna be gang, ain’t no spots left
Bad b*tch contest, it wouldn’t bе a contest
Ooh, smoking dope, I’m connectеd
I don’t know what’s longer, man, my blocklist or my checklist
I don’t know what’s colder, man, my heart or my necklace
Pretty when I wake up, I’m a bad b*tch at breakfast
Still might slide on a opp (It’s electric)
Hating didn’t work so they lie (So they lie)
These b*tches looking hurt and they fried (And they fried)
I know they wouldn’t miss them if they died
Tell ’em move (Move), move, new Chanel on my body, it’s a boost
I’m so popping I don’t ever gotta get introduced (‘Duced)
One thing I never call a b*tch for is a truce (Truce)
Brand new chopper, can’t wait to put that bitch to use (Use)

Chorus: Cardi B
Oof (Oof), checks coming fast, I’m like swoosh (Swoosh)
Ooh (Ooh), give ’em to them straight, hundred proof (Proof)
I thought I killed you hoes before, it must be déjà vu
It’s either that or I’m catching body, number two

Verse 2: Lil Durk
This that block music, this that drop location, drop a opp music (Man)
This ain’t for them n***** in the house, this sh*t for Glock users
And I don’t talk down on trenches hoes who known to be a cock user
This that pill talk, gotta buss his head, he cut on opp music
Who said you game? (Who?)
Who said you could come around this b*tch and hang? (Who?)
And I f*cked your baby mama, mama, and I ain’t say a thing (Shh)
They just came outside in 2020, pull up in that ’21
I pick my side, switches fully and I’ma die for 21 (Slaughter Gang)
I got plenty cars, I hit plenty stars and didn’t come
I said it plenty times, I pay for bodies, I ain’t pay for none
You think I’m finna leave my b*tch for you? She f*ck Future too
I know that Von hit her, she pulled up on my block in Jimmy Choo (Smurk)

Chorus: Cardi B
Oof (Oof), checks coming fast, I’m like swoosh (Swoosh)
Ooh (Ooh), get ’em to me straight, hundred proof (Proof)
I thought I killed you hoes before, it must be déjà vu

Verse 3: Kanye West
Pinky swear, you ain’t scared when you heard Ye appear
I’ma hop up out the bushes, me and Pusha kill your man
I’m just saying now I start to get used to the pain
Till one day I say, “F*ck it,” brought my masseuse on the plane
Why you playing? Reaching the gang, losing hand
Where you stand?
“Where was J at? Where was them at
Where you done that? Where you live at?”
Another headline, “Where your head at?”
“Nigga, go home, where your kids at?”
They be on my nerve, they be on my nerve, mm-mm
When we lost Virg’, I was on the verge, mm-mm
I just hit the Louis store, I had to splurge, mm-mm
We just made a silent movie with no words, mm
Guess who topping now, uh, God got me now, uh
Guess who at Balenciaga, guess who shopping now, uh
They can’t stop me now, uh, I been popping out, uh
Cardi, where your sister at? I need Henny now, mm-mm
I flew in and out, hundred-fifty-thou’ mm-mm
Now, even when they shout, gotta shout me out
So ahead, go ahead, mm-mm
Not even close, all of y’all is number two

Chorus: Cardi B
Oof (Oof), checks coming fast, I’m like swoosh (Swoosh)
Ooh (Ooh), give ’em to me straight, hundred proof (Proof)
I thought I killed you hoes before, it must be déjà vu
It’s either that or catch a body, number two
