Lyrics

[Chorus]

Lamborghini dreams, AMG ambitions
Praying for the whips with the signatures on the engines
Humble beginnings turn to fabulous endings
If we go all in I know that we’re going to get it
Lamborghini dreams, AMG ambitions
Praying for the whips with the signatures on the engines
Humble beginnings turn to fabulous endings
If we go all in I know that we’re going to get it


[Verse 1]

Riding through Jozi, backseat of a taxi
Staring out the window and watching my life pass me
Seeing A6s, dreaming about having those
Then saw the SLS pull up at the Michelangelo
If this is fate, I’m gripping it by the reigns
Realizing the vision’s in need of a wider frame
Searching beyond the stitching inside a designer name
On the road to riches just looking to find a lane
Mastering pain, ‘cause I get constantly ridiculed
Each mistake’s a disaster, each accomplishment’s miniscule
I’ve got a question for my critics, tell me this:
Where the fuck were you at 26?
Got accolades on the wall, My MSc’s in the bag
An enterprise in the works, the skill set’s getting vast
There’s dollar signs in the clouds, I’m under this glass ceiling
But give me a pen and pad and I’ll write my way to a million

(Chorus)



[Verse 2]

I’ve never voted, never thought it would work
‘cause we’re better represented by presidents in the dirt
Need that Shawn Corey blessing when you pray for me
Until it comes I’ll slay these niggas faithfully
You see, young brothers, we’ve got nothing to lose
What makes us even worse: we’ve got something to prove
Trading sleep for dreams, yeah we know what it costs
So we can stunt on behalf of all the soldiers we lost
If God loves us I promise it’s not that far
Imagining Lambos, bumping ‘I’m Not a Star’
Flipping through magazines, discussing what would be ours
Then sampling the handling racing in Project Cars
Euphoria found in the symphony of exhaust notes
Masons building maisons looking just like a Ross quote
On the rise for doper rides to open eyes
Hustle A to Z, to rake the Gs, it’s Doe or Die

(Chorus)

[Verse 3]

Picturing all the cold nights in Brighton
Heavy mist in breath as I strengthen what I’m reciting
All the while I write assignments on campus before I shimmy
To the last train from Falmer to make it back to the city
Walking out of the station en route to meet with the plug
He just copped an E-Class off the strength of his bud
Salute him and then it’s back to my room and back to the mission
So I light one up and then write it into existence

[Refrain]

Lamborghini dreams, AMG ambitions…
