LYRICS

Hook
O ga de le le le, o ga di
O ga de le le le, o ga di yo
O ga de le le le, o ga di yo
O ga de le le le, o ga di yo

Chorus
Me I no be gentleman at all
I’m a very bad sharp guy, rolling all around
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all
We always stay balling, regardless the amount
So kilode, ehn so kilo’nwa
Ogbeni kilode, heh, so kilo’nwa
Me I no gentleman at all
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all

Verse 1
I’m feeling cocky, oh damn cocky
They won stop me, oh them won stop me
Eclipse too good for that, they don’t trust me
I don bring flows, and boy, they won copy
Even when on stage its evident I still kill
Groupies got Parkinson’s, it’s hard for them to keep still
Making paper now, Thanksgiving up in church
Na money full my hand, no space to hold a grudge
I’m bringing the heat, you striking every match you’re holding
Married to the money, dough, an unholy matrimony
Real name Nkasiobi, tell ‘em that they got to know me
I dey rap die, I see the studio as a cemetery
Attitude is everything, appearance even more
Swag stay on check for the camera & applause
It’s more than just music, its a lifestyle we giving
I’m a pilot now, I stay fly for a living

Chorus
Me I no be gentleman at all
I’m a very bad sharp guy, rolling all around
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all
We always stay balling regardless the amount
So kilode, ehn so kilo’nwa
Ogbeni kilode, heh, so kilo’nwa
Me I no gentleman at all
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all

Verse 2
Cold flow spitter, make you stiff when I’m busting
Stone cold killer, no Steve, no Austin
Making money, getting very high, on a lowkey
Shorty be calling me “Daddy”, no Showkey
You sleeping on my hustle, what you in a damn coma
Or maybe you blind, you got glaucoma
Na grind I dey grind, na hate you dey hate
Na chop I dey chop, bros, na H you dey H
I’m schooling rappers in Lagos, my crib be like LASU
Speak when you spoken to, SHUT UP! if them no ask you
Always on a chill, I no dey follow them dey drag
But when I strike, I strike hard on my own, without ASUU
Criminal with the lines, I’m existentially tertiary
I’m still spitting bars, I swallowed a penitentiary
Money making, paper chasing, did it with tenacity
The shorties wey dey form, damn, got ‘em all eventually

Chorus
Me I no be gentleman at all
I’m a very bad sharp guy, rolling all around
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all
We always stay balling regardless the amount
So kilode, ehn so kilo’nwa
Ogbeni kilode, heh, so kilo’nwa
Me I no gentleman at all
If you like to vex, you yarn, that’s all

Bridge
Verily, verily, omo, I say unto you
We steady be balling, there’s nothing that you can do
When I waka pass alla dem a fi turn to fools
Say the swag wey me carry, me turn dem all to mumu
Verily, verily, omo, I say I unto you
We steady be balling there’s nothing that you can do

Outro
I’m bad, o
I’m not a gentle man at all, o
