J. Cole - Immortal Lyrics




Now I was barely seventeen with a pocket full of hope
Screamin', dollar and a dream with my closet lookin' broke
And my nigga's lookin' clean, gettin' caught up with that dope
Have you ever served a fiend with a pocket full of soap?
Nigga I can tell you things that you probably shouldn't know
Have you ever heard the screams when the body hit the floor?
Flashbacks to the pain, wakin' up, cold sweats
Six o'clock in the mornin', gotta hit the BoFlex
Get my weight up on the block, keep watch for the cops
God they love to serve a nigga three hots and a cot
Nowadays crime pays like a part time job
And the drought got me prayin' for a car time vibe
Summer Rain come again
Numb the pain 'cause it's hard for a felon
In my mind I been cryin', know it's wrong but I'm sellin'
Eyes wellin' up with tears
Thinkin' 'bout my niggas dead in the dirt
Immortalized on this shirt

Real niggas don't die
Form with the plot
One-Seven-Forty-Five
Form at the plot
Real niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Hood niggas don't lie
Form on the plot
My niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Real niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Real niggas don't die
Real niggas don't die

Have you ever seen a fiend cook crack on the spoon?
Have you ever seen a nigga that was black on the moon?
Have you ever seen your brother go to prison as you cried?
Have you ever seen a motherfuckin' ribbon in the sky?
Nope, all I see is that C.R.E.A.M nigga, that green
I'm a black king, black jeans on my black queen
And her ass fat, too fat for a flat screen
I'm the type of nigga make the whole fuckin' trap lean
Kingpin nigga, put wings on a crack fiend
If they want a nigga, they gon' have to send a SWAT team
And I'm goin' out like Scarface in his last scene
A legend, what that mean?

Real niggas don't die
Form with the plot
One-Seven-Forty-Five
Form at the plot
Real niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Hood niggas don't lie
Form on the plot
My niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Real niggas don't die
Form on the plot
Real niggas don't die
Real niggas don't die

To die a young legend or live a long life unfulfilled
'Cause you wanna change the world
But while alive you never will
'Cause they only feel you after you gone, or I've been told
And now I'm caught between bein' heard and gettin' old
Damn, death creepin' in my thoughts lately
My one wish in this bitch make it quick if the Lord take me
I know nobody meant to live forever anyway
And so I hustle like my niggas in Virgini-A
They tellin' niggas sell dope, rap or go to NBA, in that order
It's that sort of thinkin' that been keepin' niggas chained
At the bottom and hanged
The strangest fruit that you ever seen, ripe with pain
Listen...

    Sparta Lee

    @BryceSH1992
    Knowledge

    If he uploaded this on his channel then yes the views would be up. This is just a persons channel.

    And by the the way this album made certified Platinum

  56. Amira Ring

    “My one wish in this bitch make it quick if the lord take me”😩💯

  57. Ozzy

    J Cole will always be one of my favorite artists

  62. Mahfk Namsayn

    Shits a banger

  63. Tyler Carter

    He has such an interesting mind. His music takes me to a different type of feeling. It's hard to explain.

    Zee

    i totally get what you mean. nobody else has music that make me feel the type of way his does. in my book no matter what lit music comes out cole always gonna be up there at goat status wit the rest

    Please Help

    I hate to ruin this but I read “His music” as “His muscles”

  64. Enamyzz

    THIS SHOULD BE PLATINUM GODLY

  65. Thanos2

    Underrated song imo

  66. Lil Frybread

    "I'm going out like scarface in his last scene, a legend, what that means." 🔥🔥🔥

  67. Ben O'Neill

    In one of his songs he says he made it without selling a rock and now hes saying he was in the streets dealing crack, its one or the other. Im a big j cole fan but why he lying all of a suden to seem like hes been through that life he had a collage scollarship ffs

    Sir_William _III

    Ben O'Neill he’s not talking about himself in the verse. He’s rapping from his friend’s perspective who’s a drug dealer

  68. Agape Grace

    Immortal forever my fav song from 4yeo album.

  69. Sparta Lee

    R.I.P Etika. Your a real nigga. 🙏

  77. ქეთევან ვარდიაშვილი

    Got me thinkin bout X

  78. Arron Arundel

    Rip Tupac 😂

    Sparta Lee

    @Arron Arundel
    Wrong emoji bro. Your laughing. ???

  79. Kevin Le

    Why would a crack fiend cook crack on a spoon? Wouldn't it be better to just cook coke instead? BTW, Cole is GOAT.

    Joshua Marcel

    Facts! And if he ever passes away People r gna regret It

    dondondon matafaka

    his impact might not be at Pac's level right now but the skill is undeniable.

    Ishmel Walker

    dondondon matafaka but Tupac wasn’t that great mos def was on another level he was just underrated even know Tupac message was great

    dondondon matafaka

    @Ishmel Walker that's what i'm saying. Pac's impact on Hip Hop is irreplaceable.

  86. Christiaan Verburgh

    Regardless your persuasion, the living know that they shall die: And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

    And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    To make sure you are not part of the “whosoever” you need to make sure you understand from the word of God what you must do to have all your sins forgiven:
