J. Cole - St. Tropez

[Produced by J. Cole]

[Verse 1]
Roll up and smoke my sins away
I'd like to go to St. Tropez
Maybe I'll go, maybe I'll stay (Maybe I'll stay)
She asked me if I'm scared to fly
To tell the truth, I'm terrified
I never been that high before
Very bad reason not to go
Terrible reason not to go

[Hook]
He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
Show him the way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood
He's on his way, he's 'bout to get paid
He's on his way to Hollywood

[Verse 2]
Ay from the door I showed you my scars
And I told you girl, "I won't lie"
If we at war, then this is a war that I can't afford, no I, I, I
I wanted more but that was before
Lord knows I'm torn, so I–I cry (No I, I, I)
From the corner of my eye, baby
It's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile
Lately, it's been hard for me to smile

Drastically changing from the mood of “Fire Squad,” we see the arch of the album changing as Cole’s career starts to take off. The song is named after St. Tropez, France. While the verses could be about another relationship, St. Tropez has been used as a metaphor for fame and fortune in hip hop more than once. During Cole’s "2014 Forest Hills Drive" Tour, he had been breaking down the song. The album credits state that Rose “TS” Desandies, a member of Cole’s touring band, performed the background vocals in this song. "St. Tropez" samples Mobb Deep’s "Give Up The Good’s (Just Step)", along with “That’s All Right With Me” and “Hollywood”
