J. Cole - St. Tropez Lyrics




Roll up and smoke my sins away
I'd like to go to St. Tropez
Maybe I'll go maybe I'll stay
Maybe I'll stay
She asked me if I'm scared to fly
To tell the truth I'm terrified
I never been that high before
Very bad reason not to go
Terrible reason not to go

He's on his way, he's bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
Show him the way, he's about to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood

Ay from the door I showed you my scars and I told you girl, I won't lie
If we at war, then this is a war that I can't afford (No I, I, I)
I wanted more but that was before
Lord knows I'm torn, so I...I.. cry
From the corner of my eye, baby
It's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile

If you won't take me in your home
If you won't take me in your home
If you won't take me in your home
If you won't take me in your home

He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
Show him the way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood

  26. Mario the boss

    💯🔥this sounds amazing j Cole

  27. Joel Rodriguez jr

    Slept on

  28. KNIGHT MASTER

    Did Buddy use this chorus in one of his songs?

  29. Jasmine Summerlin

    Listening too this album all over again just because he dropped it in december

  30. Ison Iyatolla

    My favorite from him

  31. KLWeezy1

    As soon as I heard this, I immediately thought of Mobb Deep and "Prime" by Logic

  32. Yolanda Smith

    Mobb Deep - Give up the goods, that's the sample that St. Tropez was created off of

  33. Mark Smith

    Hearing this song in person played with live music was probably the most amazing moment in my life

  34. Melvin Hunter-Williams

    The Sample is Give Up The Goods by Mobb Deep

  35. Ya boy Kris

    This is a Mobb Deep beat that’s why it sounds so 90’s.

  36. Jones Gaming T.V

    2019 still listening to forest hill drive , support your artist

  37. Joel Villarreal

    Mobb deep used the sample first but j cole did this one justice as well. Both great songs

  38. Charley Grossman

    Now who the fk you think is living to this day.

  39. Shalom A. Esparza

    Till 2020

  40. brev_ get_loot

    Smoke song

  41. Felipe Jennings

    Que som💥💥

  42. Taylor Yasmine

    Love forever

  43. TheBadgamer0110 XD

    j cole's that artist where you dont have a favorite song because their all good lol

  44. Nick Dub

    At 2:45 there is a saxophone sample, does anyone know where that is originally from ??

    Mike Will

    Nick Dub Super late but that was actually done in the studio when this song was being made.

    Nick Dub

    Mike Will I thought that might have been the case. For some reason it sounds so reminiscent of something from the 90s to me

  45. Viper Gameplay

    Song was the best on the album to me 🤷🏽‍♂️🔥 that solo at the end is the best beat I’ve almost ever heard

  46. Austin Jones

    dis song slaps harder then my mom when she found out i had all Fs.

  47. KBTITAN24

    Give Up The Goods Mobb Deep

  48. etthe edgelord

    Before Post did it Cole did it baby 💯

  49. Sinclxir

    I’ll love you forever 🖤

  50. TinaVlogs

    I fuck w this

  51. Adam Marquez

    If u guys like this shit check out nicks groove by the foreign exchange and check out heaven and hell by el michels affair too

    you got ham legs you got hammon legs

    Shameless plug

  52. Daizjah Day

    I hear QTip😊

  53. Yaseen Gaffoor

    This will always be the true St Tropez, not the Post Malone stuff...

    ShawnDgenerationx

    No, the place in France they both talking about would be the true St Tropez fool

    Yaseen Gaffoor

    ShawnDgenerationx you are such a flipping idiot to even say this or try come here with your fan from yesterday comment. Listen to his homecoming show or St Tropez off the live album and you’ll actually hear him say it’s a made up place or a metaphor...Don’t reply until you do it. Then delete your juvenile comment and return to your boring life

    Yaseen Gaffoor

    ShawnDgenerationx listen to this. 05:15 to be exact. Don’t call people fools if you know jack https://youtu.be/ibsFG0hLq9g

    ShawnDgenerationx

    Yaseen Gaffoor dude literally acknowledges it’s a place and what kind of place he thinks it is, sorry man J Cole ain’t make up St Tropez

  54. Yaseen Gaffoor

    Who’s here because Post Malone made you realize where the real St Tropez at?

  55. Minnesota SportsFan

    I type in St. Tropez and Post Malones video already has more views than this one. Cole so underrated it's unbelievable.

    No Name

    post malone is garbage haha i would have never known he had a version if i never read these comments

    that part indeedily

    Ngl...Posty's album was pretty fire. But more so the videos.

    Minnesota SportsFan

    @that part indeedily Not saying Malone's a bad artist its just that this song does not get the love it deserves

    that part indeedily

    @Minnesota SportsFan it's just cause the reuploads bruh.

  56. Kahzzoo

    Came back here to cleanse myself of Post Malone's song

    Nicholas Garcia

    ZooZoo Kazoo same

  57. Callan Blount

    She asked me if I'm scared to fly
    To tell the truth I'm terrified

  58. Mick B

    People really don’t know this beat was sampled from Mobb deeps - give up the goods. Cole always biting other people’s beats bruh that’s why kdot better than dude

    Mackleb

    Wow he used a sample, litterally every single rapper dies but i agree kdot better.
