Jump to:
[Quavo:]
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt

Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (yeah)

[Takeoff:]
Young nigga poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Niggas pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket (glaw)

Neck water faucet (water), mocking birds mocking (woo)
Act pint, stocking, nats keep thotting (nats)
Wrist on hockey (hockey), wrist on rocky (Rocky)
Lotta niggas copy, name someone can stop me (no one)
Bitches call me papi, (bitch!), 'sace that's my hobby ('sace)
Scotty on the molly, pocket rocket from O'Reilly
One off in the chamber, ain't no need for me to cock it
Niggas get to droppin' when that draco get to poppin'
All I want is cottage, roll a cigar full of broccoli (Cookie)
No check, want all cash, nigga I don't do deposits
Bitches cross the water, nigga, bitches from the tropics
I'm a get that bag nigga, ain't no doubt about it (yup)
I'm a feed my family nigga, ain't no way around it (family)
Ain't gon' never let up nigga, God said, show my talent
Young nigga with the anna, walkin' with the hammer
Talkin' country grammar nigga
Straight out north Atlanta (north side)

Young nigga poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Niggas pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket

[Quavo:]
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (yeah)

Mama told you
Mama told me not to sell work (mama)
Mama told you
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)

1995 (nineties) 2005 (two-thousands)
Seen it with my eyes, dope still alive, (dope)
Real mob ties (mob) real frog eyes (frog)
Real whole pies (woah), all time high
Do it for the culture (culture)
They gon' bite like vultures (vulture)
Way back when I was trappin' out Toyotas (skrr skrr)
I'm a hit the gas (gas), 12 can't pull me over (12)
Space coupe, Quavo Yoda, pourin', drankin' sodas

[Offset:]
I get high on my own sir, heard you gon' clone sir
Stop all that flexin', young nigga don't wanna go there
Never been a gopher (no), but I always been a soldier
Young niggas in the cut, posted like a vulture
Divin' off the stage in the crowd it's a mosh pit
Yeah shawty bad but she broke cause she don't own shit
Mama asked me "son, when the trappin' gon' quit?"
I been ridin' round through the city in my new bitch

[Takeoff:]
Young nigga poppin' with a pocket full of cottage (ay)
Woah kemosabe, chopper aimin' at your noggin (ay)
Had to cop the Audi, then the top I had to chop it (skrt skrt)
Niggas pocket watchin', so I gotta keep the rocket

[Quavo:]
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (white)
Mama told me (aye)
Not to sell work (mama)
Seventeen five, same color T-shirt (yeah)

Mama told you, mama told you

T-Shirt Info:

• In the song, "same color T-shirt" is a reference to the white T-shirts that are popular with drug dealers.

• The song was produced by American production duo Nard & B (James Rosser, Jr. & Brandon Rackley), alongside their TrenchWerk cohort XL. It is the second highest-charting song of their career

• Rosser explained the beat:
"That day we were in the studio and we had just got our hands on some new preset for the Electra2 Plugin. Anytime we get our hands on some new presets or new sounds, it triggers some creative juice on a whole other level for us. That's when we sparked the idea for the core melody for that beat. It was part of the batch - we'd actually done probably two or three beats with the same type of flavor that same day.

I don't know if you can actually tell but the melody we put in is actually a reverse melody. We've actually done that in a couple other beats, but that one just so happened to catch Migos' ear when I sent it their way. But we were working on that one and it was just a regular day working with new sounds. We did the whole beat in Fruity Loops."
