Tote heavy steels, I can’t let you take me for mine. Free my n***a Bill, my n***a there one of a kind. He never got worried, but if I’m keeping it real, I’ma do that without trying. And none of you fuck n****s ain’t seeing us, y’all legally blind. Can’t be compared to none of these rap niggas, we really live our rhymes. Compare me to one of these big facts, I got cake all the time. Swear to God I was raised ‘round them trap n***as who be backing down. Flew out of state, was making a date, but now I’m packing nines.
This year Jackboy dropped two projects, Jackboy and Living In History, in April and August, respectively. Jackboy saw guest features from names like Kodak Black, Blac Youngsta, Casanova, Warhol.SS, YFN Lucci, and Lil Sean.
