Can’t Hold Us (feat. Ray Dalton)

Length: 4:18

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

Hey, hey, hey
Good to see you
Come on, dude, let’s go
Yeah! Let’s go!
Ha-ha-ha-ha alright
Alright, okay
Uh, alright, okay
Alright, okay
Return of the Mack
Get ’em, what it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet
And checking on who hit me, get up
Thrift shop, pimp-strut walkin’
Little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby
Sweater game, nope-nope, y’all can’t copy

These Days (feat. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen)

Length: 3:31

Release: 2018

Opening Lyrics:

I know you moved onto someone new
Hope life is beautiful
You were the light for me to find my truth
I just wanna say, thank you
Leaving to find my soul
Told her I had to go
And I know it ain’t pretty
When our hearts get broke
Too young to feel this old
Watching us both turn cold
Oh, I know it ain’t pretty
When two hearts get broke
Yeah, I know it ain’t pretty
When two hearts get broke

Thrift Shop (feat. Wanz)

Length: 3:55

Release: 2012

Opening Lyrics:

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I – I – I’m hunting, looking for a come-up
This is fucking awesome
Nah, walk up to the club like, “What up? I got a big cock!”
I’m so pumped about some shit from the thrift shop
Ice on the fringe, it’s so damn frosty
That people like, “Damn! That’s a cold ass honkey.”
Rollin’ in, hella deep, headin’ to the mezzanine,
Dressed in all pink, ‘cept my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girls standin’ next to me
Probably shoulda washed this, smells like R. Kelly’s sheets


Glorious (feat. Skylar Grey)

Length: 3:40

Release: 2017

Opening Lyrics:

You know I’m back like I never left
Another sprint, another step
Another day, another breath
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept
I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
And shit I’m straight
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name


Summer Days (feat. Macklemore & Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy)

Length: 2:43

Release: 2019

Opening Lyrics:

She looks good in the morning
And she don’t even know it
I don’t want you to go yet
Can we stay in the moment?
Don’t look in the mirror, look into my eyes
When you see your reflection, you’ll see what I like
Oh, you look good in the morning
And you don’t even know it
I knew that
