[Verse 1] Gucci S. Dots, whole hood had 'em Ice cream 'fore the hypebeasts that's into fashion Being forreal, yo try being Pharrell When your black ass in a back class, the fronting was real No Lauren London, we was on a budget You know, sharin' Old Navy so the army could be fresh in public Where the sneaker stores and laundromats get all the money Cause it ain't 'bout what you're doin', 'bout how you're lookin' When they love you for your status and your catalog And everybody got a jersey to play along Back then the hoes checkin' for your zapatos So even dirty niggas had the foams
