"Early in the morn' with it / Brace yourself, baby rate yourself / But I know it's only a ten / Baby yes save yourself in a fire / When that headboard start to bend ," Lamar raps.
He continues: "No lie, 4-5 for the game, we shoot uzis / Cinematic, might claim this on movie / PG-13 don't please me / P.S. no BS I'm usually / Teasing myself or somethin' like nananana / Once I get it I'm a selfish one like nananana / Jasmine only ride Aladdin's like nananana / Then I'mma cuff that like one time / Only one time I'mma tell you, I'm."
The track premiered last night on L.A. Power's 106 with Jasmine V on the hook, providing smooth vocals.
"It was amazing working with him. That was like the last piece of the puzzle we needed for the EP," Jasmine told Teen Vogue of working with Lamar. "He's so busy and has his own career to work on, so I was just waiting patiently for the day he was going to come. ...He's a really nice guy and I felt really blessed he decided to be on the song."
The 20-year-old singer was recently signed to Ester Dean's label through Interscope. You might remember her as the leading lady in Justin Bieber's "Baby" video. The upcoming EP marks her first project since her 2011 mixtape, S(he) Be (lie) ve(d), which featured Tyga and Ryan Leslie.
