Lupe Fiasco - Tranquillo Lyrics




[Lupe Fiasco:]
Peace
No material possessions shall cloud my judgement
As I reach, in an ethereal direction to provide my substance
Love is not found but resides insides me, I manifest this
I will respect myself and wear serenity as my necklace
I will replace what I take and have tranquility as my breakfast
Shed a new light on a new path
I will gain rhythm and lose wrath
Attain wisdom and refuse graph
And build upon what I built on
And wisely regulate time I do have
'Cause what is defeat?
But just the evidence of my haste
Lack of preparedness, in my waste
So I wait...
Surround myself with nutrition, wholesomeness and true livin'
Use natural codes of conduct to remove the schism when the rules missing
I will pursue felicity, find value in simplicity
Altruism and empathy will be the first thing extended to my enemy
Clarity will be the trademark of my friendships
Just invest in my business
And appreciative of the rarity of my existence

'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout them drugs
I'm talkin' 'bout that love
For myself and all my niggas
All my bitches and all my thugs, what's up?
'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout that work
I'm talkin' 'bout that worth
Of myself and all my niggas
Every diamond came out the dirt, nigga

[Rick Ross:]
I got bitches on bitches
All my dreams and my visions
I remember me fishin' out of canals in the trenches
Now a nigga be flossy
Rolls Royce lookin' glossy
Quick to put down a demo to get these haters up off me
I like to smoke to myself
I just try to improve
Let my son hold my strap while I swim laps in the pool
Told my daughter the rules which we all must abide
Your daddy was far from perfect, things we did to survive
I just wanted to fly, they always lookin' down on us
School district full of killers, I mean these niggas ferocious
Only violence and drugs, there was nothin' for us
All I had was this music, I couldn't afford to do much

[Lupe Fiasco:]
'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout them drugs
I'm talkin' 'bout that love
For myself and all my niggas
All my bitches and all my thugs, what's up?
'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout that work
I'm talkin' 'bout that worth
Of myself and all my niggas
Every diamond came out the dirt, nigga

[Big K.R.I.T.:]
Young nigga say ball
'Cause he ain't really livin' life 'less he's down to roll the dice
Put it all on the line for a couple dollars
And a bad bitch that only think about him if he call
Is it really worth the time and the effort?
Chasin' wood grain and the leather
Puttin' pressure on the pedal, I don't want the devil
Hopin' he fall
Feed him to his nonsense, mothafuck a contract
You don't need a handout, they gon' bring the bands out
Choppas make 'em stand down, good lord
But you don't wanna be another nigga
Chase the figures that never really add up
White folk pass your face
Dyin' in the grass 'cause they wouldn't call the law
'Cause you're hooded, Black and they think you're sellin' crack
Maybe so, you don't give a fuck in a rut, nigga
'Til those in the street got you stuck, nigga, what, nigga?
Buck, buck, nigga
Buried your partner just the other day knowin' he was too young
Had a tool, tryna roll on the folk
Let it go on the folk
But he wasn't down to shoot one
Though the time dead and gone
Is YOLO what we on?
I heard different, it's never too late to listen
And be reborn
Young nigga, young nigga, young nigga
Go be reborn
Peace and understanding is what you should be on

[Lupe Fiasco:]
'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout them drugs
I'm talkin' 'bout that love
For myself and all my niggas
All my bitches and all my thugs, what's up?
'Cause I got chillin' by the million
Tranquillo by the kilo, nigga, nigga
And I got kilos by the speedboat
And I ain't talkin' 'bout that work
I'm talkin' 'bout that worth
Of myself and all my niggas
Every diamond came out the dirt, nigga

    Everybody always seems to forget about Lupe but he top 10 straight up

  53. TraeStylz

    B.O.B would've been better on this track than Rick Ross

  54. Rome Rodgers

    The treble makes up for that lame ass Rick ross verse. Too bad you can't really hear it without headphones

  55. M N

    No material possession shall clout my judgement 💯

  56. codenamescorpion

    Love this song to death but I really feel Rick Ross should've been on another track cuz his verse throws off the whole song imo.

  60. Poetress Justice

    But BIG KIRT was on point; that's cuz he a VET!!!!

  61. Poetress Justice

    I get the message; but rating 3; feels like its all over the place & Rick Ross was not needed

  62. ematic75

    I think the point of RR and Krit on this track is what Lupe does a lot on his albums..balance or polarization. In this case 1. Lupe = Conscious or spiritual 2. RR =Material or Fleshly 3. KRIT=BOTH It represents what Hip-Hop is if you think about it. IDK..just what I felt. Esp if you listen to each of their music.

  63. ZANDER HOE

    geez KRIZZLE goes HAMM!!!

  64. Legalize Ranch

    Only if the whole album sounded like this

  65. feedsunj

    I used to be the biggest Lupe fan man - I understand his fans are loyal - but lately I've felt he hasn't . These songs have gone garbage - even moreso - hes brought more devil-like to the screen/sound since lasers .

    Songs are garbage man .

  66. Matt Pascal

    Lupe is so underrated when it comes to the greatest we always count sales but this man's poetry is one of the GREATEST of all time he keeps it trap but at the same time as lyrical as ever wow

  67. Ben Brenizer

    KRIT SO MFING SLEPT ON!!!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! SOMEONE TELL ME WHY

  68. ShieldDivision

    Lupe and KRIT killed it lyrically as always, Ross surprised me a lot, he floated over this beat

  69. candy girlll

    I wish this was just Lupe, everybody else suck

    jebus tavera

    candy girlll na he just flows so effortlessly

  70. Tj Campbell

    KING KRIT!!!!

  71. n a

    DOPE verse by lupe But rick ross's was terrible, so bad when ever i play this i have to skip it, totally ruins the purity of the first, Not sure what lupe was trying to do here, trying to appeal to the other scene?

  72. KX65

    Ross was not​ needed... still my nigga tho. #MMGforlife.

  73. KX65

    Lupe did some to the hook

  74. Nekkhakhi Rayford

    I wish lupe made DNA instead of kendrick

    Nekkhakhi Rayford

    nevermind

  75. Jade Robinson

    I want a Lupe and Cudi feat.

  76. Asia Bost

    lupe always drops food for thought

  77. Jerzyy Panesso

    This beat is so whack I feel sorry for my speakers... :/

  78. Arthur Fowler

    Why is Ross on this when you just skip past his verse...

  79. Sos

    Rick Ross gets down

  80. Travis Johnson

    had to come back to this song to make sure...its still king krit

  81. MR.STUKES

  82. Naheem Quattlebaum

  83. quintin robinson

  84. Rage Man

    This Album didn't let me down is so much bright full too many dope lines ... Shout out for Lupe for not letting the darkness swallow him.

  85. NeoTheOne

    Ross n KRIT?! Wtf?!

  86. Frankie Solo

    Should have left Ricky Ross outta this one, and Lupe n K.R.I.T. could have gone back n fourth for a 10 min track

  87. KC Yasharahla

    ross made it wack to me smh.. he couldn't bring it on this

  88. BSfunk44

    Krit is always the fire on the track

  89. E S
