Jid - NEVER

[Chorus]
Okay, never been shit, never had shit
Never knew shit, never out, never do shit, damn
But a nigga never gave two shits, damn
Never been a bitch, never had a Rollie on the wrist
Never had shit, I'ma take
Never askin', "Give me this, give me that shit
Give me everything, nigga, give me everything, nigga…"
Again, never been shit, never had shit
Never knew shit, never out, never do shit, damn
But a nigga never gave two shits, damn, damn
Never been a bitch, never had a bezel on the wrist
Never had shit, never take
Never askin', "Give me this, give me that shit
Give me everything, nigga, give me everything, nigga
Give me everything…"

[Verse 1]
Never had a real dollar to my name, bruh, shit been lame, bruh
I ain't even in this shit for the fame, bruh, it's the pain, bruh
Most of the niggas I came up with haven't came up
And doin' the same stuff, but I haven't came up, this really ain't none
Niggas thinkin' that they fuckin' with JID, y'all got the game fucked up
Tremendously, can't fuck with the mind of a mental fiend
Who dig deep in the depths when he in too deep
I crept on the steps where the demon sleeps
And yell, belch, tell my Lord what he means to me
"Oh, my God, don't be mean to me"
In the ride with a bean or three
And it's not what it seems to be, I can die, I can fly
I can try very easily, I'm a guy and a giant
She's a vivrant thing, I prolly won't buy it
Bird bitch, take flight, no pilot
Serve dick, curve bitch, no bias
Back up, back up, chick, bad timing
I got to get on stage, you better get on page
I have you looking out the windowpane
Or in the rain or anything but in the way
And if I say that's what it is, forget the lip
Now, what's my point, now I forget—damn, this bitch
Got me fuckin' up my script, fuck this shit, I got this shit
Gettin' to the point where everybody say they from the block and shit
With Glocks and shit and poppin', pimpin', trappin', sippin' lean
Y'all niggas fall for anything, you got the plug in Medellín?
Kingpin? You a pen king (Kingpin? You a pen king, ayy)
Bye, bye, niggas, 'N Sync, try I? Nigga, risky
Fire, fire from the wrist piece, niggas shootin' like the '60s

On the lead single from his debut studio album, J.I.D reflects on difficult times in his life in which he did not amount to anything and had very little to his name. Despite his hardships, however, he never felt sorry for himself and always worked hard to achieve what he desired. This song was first released on February 10, 2016, but it gained more notoriety upon J.I.D’s signing to J. Cole’s Dreamville Records. "I feel like I made it in a real crazy time in my life. When I was trying to get shit, but I didn’t really have shit. My parents, they kinda agreed with it. They fuck with it. But it was written from a past tense. It’s not like I’m never gonna be shit. People didn’t take it like that. It’s more so me saying, “This is what it was.” "This song is so fuckin special to me: this shit set the precedent for who I am as an artist. I wrote the first part in my Pontiac and the second part in a dirty closet smoking a cigarillo roach, 2 very low points in my life: it was at least 7 other artist attached to the email when I opened the beat from Christo. Even how me and Childish Major connected on the second half of the beat was so organic, it’s hard to explain. I remember a lot of things vividly, but I still feel how real these moments were in those time of creating this music. Thank you to everyone who moshed, broke floors, screamed these crazy ass words." —JID on Instagram. And the second part of kinda like a brighter side of it, because it elevates. It makes you feel a little fun because the beginning starts off hella dark. So yeah, it just was coming from a past-tense mindset and where I was at that time period. I didn’t know the song would elevate me, but it did, and it made everything I was saying true."
