J. Cole - Land Of The Snakes Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
Lord, know some hoes from the past like
"Damn Cole, wish I knew that you would be rich"
Well, should've asked
It's funny how these niggas on some real "Be cool with me" shit
I bagged two bitches like it's two of me bitch
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
Finally got my own bedroom in this bitch
No more sleeping in my brother's room
Like man I might as well be sleeping in my mother's room
Cause how I'm supposed to sneak hoes with my bro here?
Plus she gon' find out I been rocking all this old gear
This is flow here, this is no fair
This is so pure, this is so clear
This is one breath, this is no air
Ain't no wedding and I do the most here
I'm the President you the co-chair
You the player, yeah, I'm the coach here
Nigga I coast here
That's why they got me set up on this West Coast here
Avoiding the snakes, AK's, and coke yeah
Get my dick wet but I never let it soak there
Man I been thinkin' bout movin' out
What? Country boy in the city in New York nine years
Ran that shit like Diddy
Riding through South Side Queens like Fiddy

[Hook:]
Nothing's impossible
And all you lame niggas show me what not to do
I met a real bad bitch in the club tonight
She told me, "Watch the snakes cause they watching you"
I told her, "Aw baby don't stop! I ain't looking for the way to your heart!"
She said, "You 'bout to miss church" while she riding me
I like my Sundays with a cherry on top
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop

[Verse 2:]
Now if you only had one wish is it devious?
Cause you already know who your genie is
Can't get a cover now your mag on my penis
Like damn he turned out to be a genius
Damn real shit nigga no Pixar
You niggas soft like Meagan Good's lips are
My kicks hard, my whip hard
I came out the womb with my dick hard
Back when I was playing Stomp the Yard
It be a bunch of niggas up on campus talking hard
Don't get exposed to these hoes, boy, knock it off
I seen your mama in a Benz when she dropped you off
Damn now who more thorough than me?
I paint a picture of my pain for the world to see
Could paint a picture of the game but my girl would see
Gotta ask myself, "What mean the world to me?"

[Hook:]
Nothing's impossible
And all you lame niggas show me what not to do
I met a real bad bitch in the club tonight
She told me, "Watch the snakes cause they watching you"
I told her, "Aw baby don't stop! I ain't looking for the way to your heart!"
She said, "You 'bout to miss church" while she riding me
I like my Sundays with a cherry on top
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop
Make that ass drop

[Verse 3:]
This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with
A little Fayettenam nigga out in Beverly Hills
That's when I ran into this chick I went to college with
Yeah back when a nigga was on scholarship
Was in a rush but I still stopped to holla, shit
That's the least I owed her cause see I tried to hit
On the first night, nah I ain't proud of it
I boned her in my dorm room and kicked her out of it
And I never called back, how thoughtfuless
Now I'm standing in the streets tryna politic with her
In her mind she calling me a misogynist nigga
On some Bobby Brown shit my prerogative nigga is to hit and never commit
Now realizing when I hit she never forgets
So every time I ignore the telephone call
Saying I'll hit her back knowing I'm never gon' call
She was hurting, now she staring dead in my face, she was smirking
Like, "Yeah I remember and nah you ain't worth shit, nigga
You ain't worth shit, nigga"

This the shit I used to roll down Lewis Street with

  68. donne one

    Ejkejejs🕶️

  69. Baknaut

    that outkast beat tho

  70. Nick Belanger

    Really does justice to the original

  71. JayOneOfTheChosenOnes

    Cole been my favorite rapper since 2009 ......dude music is deeper than just music , if cant understand what I am saying then I am done talking lol

  72. acreativename

    holy shit i just got the “genie is” and “genius” part after years of listening to this lol

  73. Dakota B

    He did a great job no doubt but the poetry of outkast one ups his flow. Which is, again great, but they be busting some art. This in comparison is just the same syllables over and over. Less of the free flow do what you want feel as in the original that ended up mixing together really well. I'd hate to say it's too perfect flow to work but it does work. I just always prefer the original because it's more natural and makes you think more

  74. Charlie BrineSpine

    I love this song

  75. Jesse Teodoro

    2018 ? Had to comeback here cause mostly everything is trash now lol

  76. Alice Fay

    this man is so fucking 🔥🔥🔥🔥 that its criminal 👌👌💯💯💯

  77. lebogang kekana

    This is my fav jcole song ever!!

  78. Green Spiral

    THAT IS THE BEAT FROM DA ART OF STORY TELLING PART ONE

    JeremyTheBallerr

    Green Spiral we know he literally says it in the song! in the song he says it.
    “This is the shit I used to rolled down Lewis st “. Meaning the OutKast song he used to play

  79. William Ware

    "I like my Sunday with a cherry on top, make that ass drop"😱😱🍒

  80. Tahron Davis

    That last verse felt in my soul. Totally lived that scenario. AND YES, she did tell me I wasnt shit😂🤣

  81. Malik Jones

    Who else still listening 2018? Unlike a lot of recent cole fans cuz of KOD I've been fucking with Cole since freshman year in high school 👌

  82. エミ

    I met him a couple of weeks ago and I’m going through his older music like damn this guy is a true artist and sooo humble in person it’s rare these days.

    Koko Chanel

    エミ lucky

  83. Tommy Wayne

    Thank outkast for the beat and j for the lyrics...although outkast killed it too

  84. xGHoSTx

    Favorite j cole song

  85. Enlight The way

    Greatness again. Thank you

  86. Jesse Teodoro

    Dang man this beat just does some shit to me.

  87. pamaj ino

    Came from pamajs spotify playlist

  88. DK 617

    I was born in 87. Right around 05 to 07 the game started getting too glitzy, the lyrics nosed dived, and rap was hurting. If it wasn't for Cole, Kendrick, Joey Badass, and Drake I would have switched to rock in the 2010s.

  89. Joshua Rivera

    Outkast > J. Cole
    But this shit cold

  90. TrAvis Sheppard

    this was definitely his transition

  91. Larrell Lewis

    That Outkast sample though...

    JeremyTheBallerr

    Larrell Lewis we know he literally says it in the song! in the song he says it.
    “This is the shit I used to rolled down Lewis st “. Meaning the OutKast song he used to play

  92. jesko tooraw

    who TF put thumbs down though?? probably lil pumps fans lame ass rappers fam

  93. Luis Flores

    Fabian estubo aqui ;)

  94. Trulyjada4ever

    One of my favs ❤️

  95. Gene HUNCHO

    Favorite Cole song!! 🔥🔥

  96. G3ILX S

    He represents the idiocracies when listening to the song. Fun yet, mischeviuosly confusing. He explains this in the second part of the song.

  97. Ains Gown

    Rated : 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯💯

  98. Mac

    I CAME OUT THE ROOM WIT MY DICK HARD

    Keion Marshall
