  • Artist: The Quiett

  • Original lyrics

Verse 1)
It’s another swagger rap song, here we go
Although they tell me to stop acting well-off,
honestly, everybody knows it’s true that I’m well-off
and that The Q is the best is a well-known truth, yo

Yo, yes I speak truthfully
The whole world knows my songs
Yes sir, yes I rap well
So put your hands up everybody

Ha, I put my soul into my tracks
and my money into a Louis bag
Of course you can’t relate to this
I don’t need you to relate to it

I always have lots of money, I always have money left
Asia famous, Mongolia to Southeast Asia
Got my Korean flow like Yon-sama1)reference to famous Korean actor Bae Yong-joon whose (Japanese) nickname is Yon-sama (there’s no ‘ng’ in Japanese)
You can’t acknowledge me? You’re the only one

Hook)
Throw yo hands in the air now
I exude swag even when I don’t do anything
Come here and count my bills a bit
You’ll be sayin’ “WOW!”

Throw yo hands in the air now
I exude swag even when I don’t do anything
No matter where I go, women say “Hi!”
Yeah ma, let’s get wild

Verse 2)
Everybody knows Deokhwa’s swag2)The Quiett’s nickname; word play: 덕화 (dukhwa) means ‘to reform’ or ‘moral influence’ and it sounds like the first two syllables of ‘The Qui(ett)’ in Korean: ‘deo kwa(ieot)’ [Dok2 and The Quiett’s nickname Dodeok is a similar concept]
It will go down in history for a long, long time
While my haters can go fuck themselves,
my fans do know a little something

To women a cool ‘oppa’ but
to kids an uncle with a lot of money:
The Q. Everywhere I go, people go crazy
My punchlines, Muhammad Ali

Yes, I was probably born with
things like a great sense of rhythm and charisma
If you bought one of my CDs, look at the credits
There’s not one thing I can’t do

[I’m] hard-workin’, style’s perfect
I’m the rose that grew from the concrete3)reference to the album ‘The Rose That Grew from Concrete’, a compilation of 2pac’s writings
I grew up well, I earn a lot
I earn money and money earns me

Hook)
