J. COLE - Rise and Shine Lyrics

[Intro: Jay-Z]
ThereÂ’s a nigga right now somewhere
He at the table with a bowl of Apple Jacks
And heÂ’s reading the back of the cereal
And in between eating the Apple Jacks heÂ’s writing some shit
And he wants my spot
IÂ’mma find him though, IÂ’ma sign him..
I donÂ’t want no problems

[Verse 1: J. Cole]
Like we always do at this time, Cole blowinÂ’ your mind
Hey dummy, this no accident, all of this was designed
Took my time, crept from behind
And I opened up your blinds, rise and shine, Cole World
Same nigga used to drive around with yo girl
In my mamaÂ’s Civic, now IÂ’m our here tryna get it
I ainÂ’t like you lame ass niggas, boy I spit it how I live it
So when you see me in the streets, man I ainÂ’t got a mimic
Cause I ainÂ’t got an image to uphold, this real shit
I ainÂ’t got a gimmick I just flow and niggas went nuts for
The boy that set fire to the booth
In a game full of liars it turns out that IÂ’m the truth
Some say that rapÂ’s alive, it turns out that IÂ’m the proof
Cause the ones yÂ’all thought would save the day canÂ’t even tie my boots
The ones yÂ’all thought could hang with me canÂ’t even tie my noose
Let these words be my bullets nigga, I donÂ’t rhyme I shoot, bang!

[Hook]
Before I wake, I pray to the Lord
My soul to take, My soul to take

[Verse 2: J. Cole]
Lord I been dreaminÂ’ bout the paper, get rich fore I see my life caper
Hope my mama get to see Jamaica before she meet her maker
I hoop was never good enough to ever be a Laker
But these words I record got me ballinÂ’, Jordan
More than a rapper this a natural disaster
Boy, I’m meaner than Katrina mixed with Gina, “Shut up, Cole!”
This is for my niggas back home, homes, what up bo?
This is for the bitches that played me, what up ho?
Nah I ainÂ’t mad, itÂ’s sad, you went from bad to real bad
Two kids that donÂ’t even know their real dad
Real sad, baby girl I wish you still had it
Then maybe you could get a taste of livinÂ’ Villematic
Is Cole still at it? YÂ’all be talkinÂ’ about the same shit
ThatÂ’s how I feel about it, mama was a real addict
ThatÂ’s why I donÂ’t respect that lyinÂ’ ass white shit you talkinÂ’
ColeÂ’s planning funerals, you might fit the coffin

[Hook]
Before I wake, I pray to the Lord
My soul to take, My soul to take
My soul to take, My soul to take
heyÂ…

[Verse 3: J. Cole]
Get on your job lil mane, this ainÂ’t Saturday
We in two different lanes, you canÂ’t navigate
We in two different games, you playinÂ’ patty cake
Brother youÂ’re lame, youÂ’re Shane Battier
You out of shape, my mind run a mile a minute
The skyÂ’s the limit, IÂ’m so high, IÂ’m divinÂ’ in it
My rides is tintedÂ’, my knobÂ’s gettinÂ’ slobbed up in it
She hollerinÂ’ God, man you wouldÂ’ve thought that God was in it
But itÂ’s just a nigga God invented
The best out, foolish prideÂ’ll make you not admit it
But if this shit ainÂ’t fire nigga, why you noddinÂ’ with it?
The hate in your blood canÂ’t stop your soul from vibinÂ’ with it
Now you all conflicted cause my flows is wicked
And my hoes is thicker and all of yours is pickinÂ’ me
Cause they know a star when they see a star, nigga
AinÂ’t even got to f-ck him to know he a raw nigga
I got her in my bedroom, but cheer up, nigga
You saved so many hoes, you a hero nigga!
Medal of honor, IÂ’m feelinÂ’ on top like Pac
When he slept with Madonna, hey, this is death before dishonor
Get arrested and forget to tell my mama
She got enough to stress about, my niggas gonna get me out
Then we hit the club with the thugs and the liquors
No criminal record but IÂ’m makinÂ’ criminal records
IsnÂ’t it ironic? IsnÂ’t it iconic?
Jacket so expensive you wouldnÂ’t even try on it
But it fit me perfect, I purchase it if I want it
The city on my shoulder, so no girl, you canÂ’t cry on it
When you make a list of the greatest aye, am I on it?
Maybe not yet but bitch I got the clock set
It goes tick-tock, game on lock
Sun gonÂ’ shine but the reign wonÂ’t stop, oh no!

[Hook]
If I die before I wake, I pray to the Lord
My soul to take, My soul to take
My soul to take, My soul to take
