Lyrics for LEGENDARY by Joey Bada$$ :
[Intro: Joey Bada$$ & J. Cole]
Yeah, uh
Yeah
Yeah, uh
Yeah

[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$]
This is legendary
Always been my mission, never secondary
Gettin’ better every January, it’s very scary
They gon’ recognize eventually, I take it if they don’t give it to me
Swear all of it was written for me (yep, yep)
By a higher conscious spiritually (up, up)
Up and away, jump on a plane, get on my wave right now
I want you believe not only in me, but have some faith in yourself
I wish you peace and good health, happiness and some wealth
I threw a coin in the well, ’cause I was feelin’ so well
A token of how I felt, never heard if it fell
Not a noise, not a sound, still no reason to doubt
Quality what I sell, quantity in the sales
Quantum physics myself, count a million atoms of cells
This life I’m livin’ it out, damn right, my vision is now
Don’t let the prisoner cell build a strut to break out
My brothers at the brick house, the undercovers stakeout
Can’t you see it’s a trap? The type of sh*t I think ’bout
I sensed they needed my help, that’s why I had to reach out
What you think I do it for? My brothers under a spell
It’s clear we livin’ in hell, the life of a black male
Right out the womb, you come out, and it’s a bunch of blackmail
Just waitin’ for you to fail, a special room in the jail
With your name, a number on it so you property now
I see it properly now, it’s what the poverty ’bout
It’s all a game of Monopoly, tryna cop me a house
An elephant in the room until I fit in my tomb
And introduced to my doom, they say the end comin’ soon

[Chorus: Joey Bada$$]
Legends, they never die
The n*ggas only multiply
So put your fire up in the sky
‘Cause they won’t ever kill the light
They say the legends, they never die
The n*ggas only multiply
So put your fire up in the sky
‘Cause they won’t ever kill the light

[Bridge: Joey Bada$$]
Tables keep turning, which way do I go?
A fire’s burning inside of my soul
Tables keep turning, which way do I go?
A fire’s burning inside my control

[Verse 2: J. Cole]
Look, ready for whatever comes
I hope for the best, I taste the peace and pray it never leave my tongue
But yet, before long, the feelings done
Perhaps I was foolish, just like the boy that prays to only see the sun
Maybe, life happens like tides
One minute you’re low and feelin’ shallow, then all of a sudden you rise
Just, ride the wave, I say to myself
Find a way, the weight of my wealth
It’s honestly a lot to bear
I play the game of stackin’ knowin’ that I ought to share
How much does a man need? How much can he hoard before his greed?
How can a rich father teach humbleness to his seed?
Just questions, the stubborn all get taught tough lessons
I look at all I got like, “What’s missin’?”
God is my only guess, ’cause yes, faith relieve the stress
I find peace again when I find Him and see I’m blessed
Real blessed, life has always got me wonderin’
(Wondering, wondering) Am I doin’ it right?
Am I hurtin’ myself?
Am I wrongin’ the ones that love me the most?
What a burden to have
That ain’t no way to live
Or maybe it is
Well, maybe it is

[Bridge: Joey Bada$$]
Tables keep turning, which way do I go?
A fire’s burning inside of my soul
Tables keep turning, which way do I go?
A fire’s burning inside my control

[Chorus: Joey Bada$$]
Legends, they never die
The n*ggas only multiply
So put your fire up in sky
‘Cause they won’t ever kill the light
They say the legends, they never die
The n*ggas only multiply
So put your fire up in sky
‘Cause they won’t ever kill the light

[Outro: Joey Bada$$]
This is legendary, it’s never secondary
I’m getting better every January
The idea of it alone is very scary
I kill my enemies by any means necessary
I said, this is legendary, it’s never secondary
Getting better every January
The idea of it alone is very scary
I kill my enemies by any means necessary
