Ima catch em
Never stall out
Life a blessing
So I ball out
I ain’t gotta tell em
They know what I’m all bout
Heavy stepping
Tell em calm down

Porsche 911 Hat to the back huh Where they at huh
Watch for the snakes watch for the rats In the grass
Ratatats arbaks these is our blocks
Can’t get close so me getting smoke is a long shot
You know how the team rock
you don’t wanna be caught
Growing up we fought
Some we’ve won some we’ve lost
Pedal to the medal won’t ease off
Riding tryna blow a lil steam off
Nothing like the sand and the beach
Lost a couple friends to the streets

Ima catch em
Never stall out
Life a blessing
So I ball out
I ain’t gotta tell em
They know what I’m all bout
Heavy stepping
Tell em calm down

You know how I do
Sport mode fly like mew
Charged up like raichu
See em tryna jock my moves
I was on the block like you
Just another north side youth
Where a dollar make a dream come true
Where we pull up to the scene go boom boom, boom

Ima catch em
Never stall out
Life a blessing
So I ball out
I ain’t gotta tell em
They know what I’m all bout
Heavy stepping
Tell em calm down

I love the record I did for it, called ‘Believing,’ and I hope it inspires my fans to chase their dreams.”

“P25 Music has been an incredible journey in which we’ve been able to collaborate with so many amazing musicians to help us celebrate 25 years of Pokémon,” said Colin Palmer, Vice President of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “As we count down to the launch of Pokémon 25: The Album and the culmination of this yearlong adventure, we’re looking forward to Lil Yachty, Tierra Whack, and Jax Jones joining the party and adding their own unique sounds and fresh takes on Pokémon-inspired songs to this celebratory compilation.”
