Wale - Heaven's Afternoon Lyrics

In the grand scheme of things
We never were supposed to have shit
Born to lose, built to win
Let's get it in

We ain't supposed to never have nothing
We ain't supposed to never have shit
See the growth in my rhymes
See my focus ain't on them

[Verse 1:]
Nah, at the top is just us, right
Let's get it
PRPS, something nice you ain't know 'em
Givenchy, but no kilt, mi amor
We can't leave, but we love the allure
Hold mine down and stay above what you on
On, I'm appeased and obliged
Scorpio freaks quantity Gemini
I'm a need me a light
Ridin' through the cap, Cap STEEZ on the mind
I ain't know him but I wish I did
Each one, teach one, may the youth live
On that, Joey Bad please hold your head
Lost one last summer, livin' ain't fair
While them niggas scared, we forever in
Hates see you smile, money everywhere
Dream killers out, I see them in the rear
Before I put them in a song, put them in a prayer


[Verse 2:]
Yeah, I'm focused, it's Folarin here
I reckon your barbershop talk of this
Heavenly father, may the spirit of God
Help whoever at odds get your guidance quick
All we need Keisha, all we need Becky
All we need is God, and fed free fetti
My little buddy lives strong, young nigga peddle
He ain't make it in the leagues, so the streets wed him
Gettin' wet up on the corner in whatever weather
Boy see the jail again, he gonna see the devil
Been a week since he seen his mother
And 18 since he seen the other
I'm a pray for him
It's safe to say, he got some pain within
It ain't too much that I can say to him
Cause my bank statement don't relate to him


[Verse 3: Meek Mill]
I was so fresh, so clean when I stepped on that scene
Pulled up Aston Martin, you could ask them ya'll seen
When I came through this bitch
Paper tagging on lean
Baddest bitch in the game
Nigga that was ya'll dream
Hold up, let me get a feel
Like Jack say hold up
I don't feel these niggas, nah
Hey Wallace

[Verse 4: Wale]
Yap, what's the problem? I'm focused
I'm Kobe, I kill these niggas
I ain't scared of these niggas
Getting higher than Shaquille O'Neal
Field Goal Percentage
Yeah me nigga
Till the brokest nigga with got a mill plus interest
Meek keep living
Get em

[Verse 5: Meek Mill]
When I was dead broke used to always tell myself I'mma still be the shit
'Til my P.O she locked me up
I'mma do the time come home and still be this rich
Still see the bricks, I'mma still be a Mitch
Got these RICO shit tryna kill me and shit
Hol' up, tryna kill me and shit
Let me get the flow back, I was killing this shit
We was killing them strips, drop heads - no ceiling shit
Ain't talking 'bout Wayne, bitch I'm talking them things
300 and change got a million in whips


Started from the bottom nigga
But now we grinding till the law come get us
For the money and them commas nigga
But can't forget about vagina nigga
Started from that bottom nigga
But now I got it it's a problem nigga
For that money and them dollars nigga
And I ain’t rich but I'm still shining nigga
I'm still shining nigga
I'm still shining nigga
Shining nigga
We still shining nigga
Shining nigga
We still shining nigga
Shining nigga
Let me shine my nigga

    Caballo Negro

    @Eric Patterson Lyrically he's not.

    Diallo tipac

    +Eric Patterson that's not true

  62. Wes Eye

    meek called wale a broke rapper and he said he out of MMG

  63. Fujiwara


  64. Dru Chatman

    To me Wale and J.Cole are the JayZ and Nas of this era , they are the two best of this time and they won't be fully appreciated until 10yrs from now , just like Jay and Nas

    Ty Robinson

    @Tam Ham Hes just the most popular. I dont even think Drake thinks hes the best

    Diego Lainez

    +Tam “Yo Sam” Ham I agree with you, but Drake writes plenty of his raps bruh

    Diego Lainez

    +Acid Jones I think he does lol

    Ryan McCarthy

    wale and Cole are on an other level then Jay. "if lyrics sold I be Talib kwali."- jay z

    Matthew Anderson

    @Acid Jones actually Meek Mills verse on Wale's song ambition is really good and tells the struggles of a hard upbringing in Philly , just cause you can't relate to hard times doesn't make him a bad rapper

    Ty Robinson

    @Matthew Anderson What are you talking about? You just put hella words in my mouth

    Matthew Anderson

    @Acid Jones "said noone ever" nahh people do like some of Meeks verses you trippin
