Riff: J. Cole – “Sparks Will Fly”

Jun 18, 2013

Baby you deserve the whole enchilada/Gucci and Prada/Toast to the days when I didn’t have a dollar

from Sparks Will Fly lyrics by J. Cole

Throwing a nod to 50 Cent‘s half-genius/half-shocker, Cole tries to convince the girl who stuck with him when he was penniless that even though he strays from time to time, he still loves her, not only like a fat kid that loves cake but also like a bad kid who loves breakin’ shit; [LISTEN].
