J.Cole – MIDDLE CHILD /lyrics

As promised it was delivered!  J Cole MIDDLE CHILD official video is out.  Middle child which is part of the Album “The Off Season”  , the Track was produced by J Cole and T-minus , which is  J. Cole’s first offering of 2019 serves as a warning in advance of an extensive rollout of Dreamville material.   Cole has been one of the most consistent artists in the game ,climbing to the top of the industry and working hard in everything that he does.

On the track, Cole envisions himself in the center of the old and new generations of hip-hop, therefore making him the “middle child” of rap.

I am sure you have heard of the middle child syndrome or the “stereotype” surrounding being a middle child if not I will explain .  Middle child syndrome is a psychological condition of feeling left out by a child who is the middle one in between two siblings. middle children sometimes feel neglected by their families due to the attention that their younger and older siblings receive.

About the video clip

The Video starts with a very dark visualization (it’s  dark OK ) you can see a male figure in red I suppose it’s Cole , two seconds later we confirm my theory and yes indeed its J Cole and he is singing towards the camera ( shocking) , and you notice in the  dark figures behind him ( scary right?) things get a little bit happier but i am not going to tell you everything … Just go watch the video it’s on YouTube ( the boy has released the beast)if you haven’t and if you did let me know in the comments what you thought of it .  And for the ones who came only for the lyrics or if you want to sing along while watching the video here they are :

Middle child Lyrics

[Intro]
You good, T-Minus?

Niggas been countin’ me out
I’m countin’ my bullets, I’m loadin’ my clips
I’m writin’ down names, I’m makin’ a list
I’m checkin’ it twice and I’m gettin’ ’em hit
The real ones been dyin’, the fake ones is lit
The game is off balance, I’m back on my shit
The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
But that’s how I like it, you all on my dick
I’m all in my bag, this hard as it get
I do not snort powder, I might take a sip
I might hit the blunt, but I’m liable to trip
I ain’t poppin’ no pill, but you do as you wish
I roll with some fiends, I love ’em to death
I got a few mil’ but not all of them rich
What good is the bread if my niggas is broke?
What good is first class if my niggas can’t sit?
That’s my next mission, that’s why I can’t quit
Just like LeBron, get my niggas more chips
Just put the Rollie right back on my wrist
This watch came from Drizzy, he gave me a gift
Back when the rap game was prayin’ I’d diss
They act like two legends cannot coexist
But I’d never beef with a nigga for nothin’
If I smoke a rapper, it’s gon’ be legit
It won’t be for clout, it won’t be for fame
It won’t be ’cause my shit ain’t sellin’ the same
It won’t be to sell you my latest lil’ sneakers
It won’t be ’cause some nigga slid in my lane
Everything grows, it’s destined to change
I love you lil’ niggas, I’m glad that you came
I hope that you scrape every dollar you can
I hope you know money won’t erase the pain
To the OGs, I’m thankin’ you now
Was watchin’ you when you was pavin’ the ground
I copied your cadence, I mirrored your style
I studied the greats, I’m the greatest right now
Fuck if you feel me, you ain’t got a choice
Now I ain’t do no promo, still made all that noise
This year gon’ be different, I set my intentions
I promise to slap all that hate out your voice
Niggas been countin’ me out
I’m countin’ my bullets, I’m loadin’ my clips
I’m writin’ down names, I’m makin’ a list
I’m checkin’ it twice and I’m gettin’ ’em hit
The real ones been dyin’, the fake ones is lit
The game is off balance, I’m back on my shit
The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
But that’s how I like it, you all on my dick
I just poured somethin’ in my cup
I’ve been wantin’ somethin’ I can feel
Promise I am never lettin’ up
Money in your palm don’t make you real
Foot is on they neck, I got ’em stuck
I’ma give ’em somethin’ they can feel
If it ain’t ’bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
Pistol in your hand don’t make you real
I’m dead in the middle of two generations
I’m little bro and big bro all at once
Just left the lab with young 21 Savage
I’m ’bout to go and meet Jigga for lunch
Had a long talk with the young nigga Kodak
Reminded me of young niggas from ‘Ville
Straight out the projects, no fakin’, just honest
I wish that he had more guidance, for real
Too many niggas in cycle of jail
Spending they birthdays inside of a cell
We coming from a long bloodline of trauma
We raised by our mamas, Lord we gotta heal
We hurting our sisters, the babies as well
We killing our brothers, they poisoned the well
Distorted self image, we set up to fail
I’ma make sure that the real gon’ prevail, nigga
I just poured somethin’ in my cup
I’ve been wantin’ somethin’ I can feel
Promise I am never lettin’ up
Money in your palm don’t make you real
Foot is on they neck, I got ’em stuck
I’ma give ’em somethin’ they can feel
If it ain’t ’bout the squad, don’t give a fuck
Pistol in your hand don’t make you real
Money in your palm don’t make you real
Pistol in your hand don’t make you real
Money in your palm don’t make you real
