Kanye West – Real Friends ft. Ty Dolla $ign Lyrics

(Verse 1 – Kanye West)
Real friends, how many of us?
How many of us, how many jealous? Real friends
It’s not many of us, we smile at each other
But how many honest? Trust issues
Switched up the number, I can’t be bothered
I cannot blame you for having an angle
I ain’t got no issues, I’m just doing my thing
Hope you’re doing your thing too
I’m a deadbeat cousin, I hate family reunions
F**k the church up, I’m drinking at the communion
Spilling free wine, now my tux is ruined
In town for a day, what the f**k we doing?
Who your real friends? We all came from the bottom
I’m always blaming you, but what’s sad, you’re not the problem
Damn I forgot to call her, sh*t I thought it was Thursday
Why you wait a week to call my phone in the first place?
When was the last time I remembered a birthday?
When was the last time I wasn’t in a hurry?

(Bridge – Ty Dolla $ign)
Tell me you want your tickets when it’s gametime
Even to call your daughter on her FaceTime
Even when we was young I used to make time
Now we be way too busy just to make time
Even for my…

(Chorus – Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign)
Real friends
I guess I get what I deserve, don’t I
Word on the streets is they ain’t heard from him
I guess I get what I deserve, don’t I
Talked down on my name, throwed dirt on him

(Verse 2 – Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign)
I couldn’t tell you how old your daughter was
Couldn’t tell you how old your son is
I got my own Jr. on the way, dawg
Plus I already got one kid
Couldn’t tell you much about the fam though
I just showed up for the yams though
Maybe 15 minutes, took some pictures with your sister
Merry Christmas, then I’m finished, then it’s back to business
You wanna ask some questions bout some real s**t?
Like I ain’t got enough pressure to deal with
Please don’t pressure me with that bill s**t
Cause everybody got em, that ain’t children
Oh you’ve been nothing but a friend to me
Ni**as thinking I’m crazy, you defending me
It’s funny I ain’t spoke to ni**as in centuries
To be honest, dawg I ain’t feeling your energy
Money turn your kin into an enemy
Ni**as ain’t real as they pretend to be

(Verse 3 – Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign)
Looking for all my real friends
How many of us? How many of us are real friends
To real friends, to the real end
Til the wheels fall off, til the wheels don’t spin
To 3 A.M. calling
How many real friends?
Just to ask you a question
Just to see how you was feeling
How many?
For the last you was fronting
I hate when a ni**a text you like, what’s up, fam, oh you good?
You say, I’m good, then great, the next text they ask you for something
How many?
What’s best for your family, immediate or extended
Any argument, the media’ll extend it
I had a cousin that stole my laptop that I was f**king bi**hes on
Paid that ni**a 250 thousand just to get it from him
Real friends
Huh?

(Repeat Chorus)
