Lyrics for CUT EM IN (feat. Rick Ross) by Anderson .Paak:

Intro: Big Sean & Anderson .Paak
(G. Ry got me)
(Hit-Boy on the beat so, bitch, you gotta go berserk)
Yeah, yeah, okay, hmm

Chorus: Anderson .Paak
Sometimes you need a friend (Need a friend)
Not the ones that just show up and don't put nothin' in (Nothin' in)
You know the ones that lend a hand and wanna see you win (See you win)
When you come up on a lick, make sure you cut 'em in (Cut 'em in)
And then, uh
Sometimes you need a foe (You need a foe)
One that keep your eyes open, keep your on your toes (Keep your on your toes)
You know the ones that wanna keep you where you been before (Been before)
But I can't go (No I can't go), no I can't go (No I can't go)
And whoa, uh
Sometimes I need a check (Check)
Not the sneakers but the ones that make you watch your step (Make you watch your step)
Fuck your chain, fuck your name, I'm 'bout your respect ('Bout your respect)
Givin' more than I what I get, expectin' up the bag
In fact

You know I sat down with my accountant
He said "I got good news and I got bad news" (Okay)
I said "What's the good news?"
He said "The good news is you made a lot" (Whoa, okay)
I said "What's the bad news?"
He said "The bad news is you spent more"
Okay, oh shit, look, uh

Verse 1: Anderson .Paak & Rick Ross
Sometimes you need the faith (You need the faith)
Sometimes you need to know your worth, sometimes you need to wait
Shoot like the Golden Boy but not from the Bay
You can't negociate with Dre, you gon' have to pay (You gon' have to pay)
But wait (Wait, wait)
Juggin' on the main stage
Fuckin' up the main frame
Loosen up your face, baby (Ah)
Sometimes I need a vacay (It's the biggest)
Meditate, hydrate
Protect my energy before engament (Huh)
(Maybach Music)

Verse 2: Rick Ross
Grew up havin' nothin', you labelled impatient (Huh)
But once the boss made it, you labelled amazin'
Meticulous with words, that's your force of nature (Boss)
I don't wanna seem absurd but the boy's a gangster
Foc-focusin' on me, way from Tel-Aviv (Tel-Aviv)
Barbados with the hustle ? (Woo)
The state of destinations, all I wanna see (See)
Oceans from residences, it's three different ones a week
'Cause I deserve that (Deserve that)
It's time to learn that (Learn that)
Mess around and put that thing over your permit (Your permit)
Six figures, every year, yeah I earned that (I earned that)
At the front of these lines is where my turn at, huh
(Maybach Music)

Chorus: Anderson .Paak
Sometimes you need a friend (Need a friend)
Not the ones that just show up and don't put nothin' in (Nothin' in)
You know the ones that lend a hand and wanna see you win (See you win)
When you come up on a lick, make sure you cut 'em in (Cut 'em in)
And then, uh
Sometimes you need a foe (You need a foe)

Verse 3: Anderson .Paak
Oh
Men ain't gon' lie (Oh)
Women ain't gon' lie (Oh)
You lookin' for the truth, then the numbers don't hide (Oh)
Lookin' for the root of all evil, they need to go (Oh)
Open up the briefcase, see it with your eyes (Oh)
Everybody claim to be the greatest of all times
But they never spend a day in the rain in the front line (No lie, no lie)
Uh, stop playin' on my phone now
Shoot like Kilo, pull up in a space coupe
With the roof, optional, wonder why they follow suit
I've been groomed from the womb, came out of my mama coochie
With some brand new tennis shoes, that's the ? speedin' bullet
Nah, nah, nah, it's cool, it's cool, it's cool (Don't play with it, baby)
Say what you gon' do with that (Stop playin' the baby)
Turn around, if you don't do it now (Don't play with it, baby)
Exactly, yeah
It's not a game

Song Facts

“CUT EM IN” is Anderson .Paak’s second release of 2020, following his BLM protest track “Lockdown.” The track sees him and collaborator Rick Ross rapping about their finances, explaining how they’ll reward good friends by ‘cutting them in’ to a slice of their profits. They also talk about how sometimes people need enemies in their lives, people that don’t want them to prosper – this hate is what drives them to reach greater heights.
Notably, the song takes more of a hip-hop feel than .Paak’s previous singing-focused songs, with the pair spitting over a catchy electric guitar/piano beat produced by Hit-Boy, Corbett and G. Ry.
