Earl Sweatshirt - The Mint Lyrics




Yup, yup, that's right
I'm runnin' things, I'm runnin' things

Hold me down, hold me up
Hold me close 'cause my times is up
Show they true colors, don't know who to trust
Mind workin' like the water when it rush
Grownin' from my father, bitter to his touch
Now I'm solely honor, livin' is a must
All this for my momma 'til I'm dust
God gon' deal the calm, but lost my trust
Sayin' "Every man know many men"
Got me in a jam, I be in my feelings
On the other hand, I just need a moment
My condolence, smoke until the mornin'

Brodie on the corner with a piece on his hip
Give a warning 'fore you blow it in the sky
Tiptoein' over mortar and the brick
Bumpin' shoulders with the devil in disguise
Show the love of water on the rise
Twist, 40s in the morning in the winter
I heard you got your sauce at the enterprise
Evidently, it was rented but it's mine
Evidently, it was written like Nas
I was in the kitchen with that nigga Mike
Gotta listen when I tell ya simmer down
Two years I've been missin', livin' life
You was wildin', every day was trash
Crackers pilin' in to rape the land
Early morning, wash my swollen hands
Hit the showers, cleanse my soul and crash
Tiptoein' over glass, brodie go too fast, told him slow up
Know I use too much of everything at hand
Except the difference is now I control it, I be
In the crib and in the moment, stuck sippin' out the flask
Feet up on the dash, I hit the spliff but don't promote it
Under overpass, no cap
Say I'm ballin' out the hourglass
Grand total, it's a whole lotta raps
Quicksand, scramblin' outta that
Go behind the back, switch hands
The fair's high, niggas know they outta wack
Sterilize your clique, paralyze maritime niggas when
Every time wavy dyin', tappin' in
Savion Glover caught a couple Ls
Took 'em to the neck, motherfucker

Lotta blood to let, peace to make, fuck a check
Uh-uh, lotta blood to let, peace to make, give a fuck about a check
Lotta blood to let, peace to make, give a fuck about a check
Uh-uh, lotta blood to let, peace to make, give a fuck about a-
Nigga, ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy, maybe

  42. TRU MAN

    If career suicide is what he was going for then he succeeded admirably.

    TRU MAN

    @Roc Cygnus He's not hip hop. He's not Earl Sweatshirt.
    He's like a consciously retarded Bob Marley reggae rapper.
    It's just a few die hard fan boys that remain loyal despite his ridiculous transformation. His style is completely different. Doesnt even sound good. Off beat. Just noise.

    ayy fam

    @TRU MAN Imagine wasting your time hating on a man that doesn't even care what you think about his music... sad.

    TRU MAN

    @ayy fam Almost as sad as replying to that man "hating" on that man that doesn't even care what you think lol

    ayy fam

    @TRU MAN Keep on being angry about another mans music when you could just not listen to it. Pretty sad.

    TRU MAN

    @ayy fam I'm not angry at all you dumb ass. I gave him a listen and stated my opinion. Youre the one that's butthurt.
    I was a huge fan of earl up until he dropped this garbage.

  43. Imthatyeti

    The doordash ad girl's voice is hot

  44. Максим Кириченко

    Navy Blue is cool

  45. Huey Freeman

    that photo in the top left makes the art hit different

    Granola

    is that then when they were younger or something?

    Huey Freeman

    @Granola yeah

  46. Hater

    The best track on the album

  47. Eric Glenn

  50. Bobo Bobo

  67. Muhammad Albooboo

    Hey man this might sound weird but the time signature on this beat is 3/4 instead of the usual 4/4. So even tho he sound off beat, it's really the beat that's off beat. If that makes sense lol

  76. Dubb QT
