This week’s “Inside the Lines” quotes “Timmy Turner”, the first single off of the rapper Desiigner’s debut studio album “The Life of Desiigner”, that was released July 2016. In this song, Desiigner raps a story of Timmy Turner and his harsh and ghetto experience within the environment he lives in.
Tiimmy, Tiimmy, Tiimmy Turner
Young boy walkin’, wishin’ for a burner
Four, five, six, ten ratchets on ‘em
Ten niggas with them chains clappin’ on ‘em
Dead niggas with ‘em, dead niggas, get ‘em
Four-five’s with ‘em, four-five’s hit ‘em
You talk money, young niggas with ‘em
Young niggas get ‘em, ballooning, ballooning, ballooning
I fell in love with the Ruger I been in love with my jeweler
I been in love with the mula
Banana clips going through ya…
Desiigner – Timmy Turner
