Rejjie Snow – Purple Tuesday (feat. Joey Bada$$ & Jesse Boykins III)


Where we should be
Badman ah
I’m Houdini with the Uzi, holy father, wake me up
We could build a galaxy
That’s when I say yo, chill, shawty, relax
And the rap game crazy but the- came at ’em
And out came his black ass, remember, you was yellow with your
[Outro: Joey Bada$$]
Tryna stain the legacy, pray to Allah
These are the days that we pray for love
Far, far away from here
Badman gon’ sing, yo
Y’all, badman and ting
June 19th ’87 in the kitchen

Seven years old, I asked Christ and the genie
U-N-I-T-Y, that’s a unity
Badman do
The straw that broke the camel’s back, in love with your life
Where we should be
I know that I could take you far
[Bridge 1: Jesse Boykins III & Joey Bada$$]
Put your hands together, folks, for the black roach
These are the days that we pray for love
We got a duty, gotta save, ayy What do we do?
My fountain of youth is all drying, one minute, we all smiling
‘Bout to deliver like Stagecoach
We got a duty, gotta save, ayy What do we do?
Eve came home feeling fruity and we smashing
Yeah
The man rose, little concrete rose​
Done seen a lot of shit that you probably can’t live with
Rain, rain pouring like the bezels in my chalice
We got a duty, gotta say What do we do?
Wet lick done licked the gold stars of my heart
Golden roses over enemies and sprinkled with serenity
A little shawty asked me what’s my purpose and why?
U-N-I-T-Y, that’s a unity
Them hella fine dimes with that ass so fat
This you-and-I-verse could be
This you-and-I-verse could be
Potentially
With that North Face jacket, blade tucked in my-
U-N-I-T-Y
Then poof, we fall silent and I’ve been digging deep
And travel to a place he thought that he would never find, uh
Badman do, yeah
Far, far away from here
[Chorus: Jesse Boykins III]
So let’s keep giving to the stars
Yeah, yeah, what?
Where we should be
Where we should be

Determines and divides, that’s insuring our lives
Have you ever walked home afraid, alone in the night?
For this thing, I ain’t finding this
If visions is colourblind, it’s fine, your life will still shine as
All of that ass got me feeling real ratchet
Genie in the bottle though it’s Jenny on the block
You and me

We got a duty, gotta say What do we do?
Badman ah gwan
[Bridge 3: Jesse Boykins III]
More than just the dreams of the living
I consume this time he begin to unravel
’97 Hov playing, trunk rattled the car
Y’all-y’all, y’all, y’all, y’all
I could see the you in me
So let’s keep giving to the stars
Blowing bubbles in the faces of the people afar
Time-traveller, that boy, he a star
Way, way before the tomb came the womb, no question
Either I’m insane in my brain or to be honest, that’s
I told him save the children and put them right at the line
Where we should be
Badman fi do
Yeah
Like that, y’all-y’all, y’all, y’all, y’all
Uh Like that?
Cancelling the shows and making money off of acting
[Verse 2: Joey Bada$$]
Ten years old, I seen my friend die really

Probably what it is
[Chorus: Jesse Boykins III]

U-N-I-T-Y
Black bandana with your fingers all twisted
Know I stay posted, my- (that was it), yo, what’s the signs?
Have you ever taken drink inside the loo just in case?
What?
[Verse 1: Rejjie Snow]
What? What? What?
He said for sure, that’s tight, but where the dollar signs and that
U-N-I-T-Y
It’ll all get sunny, but for now it’s this money that
Even causing homicides on the streets of NY
You probably can’t stomach, you probably can’t ingest
U-N-I-T-Y
We could build a galaxy
I know that I could take you far
The chicken came before the egg and way before the atoms
That Phantom and the Maybach, that black MAC that go crick-crack
U-N-I-T-Y, that’s a unity
What do we do? We got a duty, gotta say
More than just the dreams of the living
Potentially
Let me open your mind to the current times
Cause the fears of a man just like God to my cape
At times, we were so hungry, got mad dreams and wishes
I could see the you in me
We got a duty, gotta say What do we do?
And fo’ sho’, got you rappers Instagramming your ma
[Bridge 2: Joey Bada$$]
You and me

Where we should be
U-N-I-T-Y, that’s a unity
