          The instrumental is produced by Freddie Joachim. It is called Waves. I don't know why they didn't at least put that in the description. Joey Badass gave credit when he used it

              [Intro]
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this

              [Verse 1]
              Yeah, life is a balance
              You lose your grip, you can slip into an abyss
              No doubt, you see these niggas trippin'
              Ego in charge of every move, he's a star
              And we can't look away due to the days that he caught our hearts
              He's fallin' apart, but we deny it
              Justifying that half ass shit he dropped, we always buy it
              When he tell us he a genius but it's clearer lately
              It's been hard for him to look into the mirror lately
              There was a time when this nigga was my hero, maybe
              That's the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take
              'Cause I believed him when he said his shit was purer and he
              The type of nigga swear he real but all around him's fake
              The women, the dickriders, you know, the yes men
              Nobody with the balls to say somethin' to contest him
              So he grows out of control
              Into the person that he truly was all along, it's startin' to show
              Damn, wonder what happened
              Maybe it's my fault for idolizin' niggas
              Based off the words they be rappin'
              But come to find out, these niggas don't even write they shit
              Hear some new style bubblin' up, then they bite this shit
              Damn, that's what I get for lyin' to myself
              Well, fuck it, what's more important is he's cryin' out for help
              While the world's eggin' him on, I'm beggin' him to stop it
              Playin' his old shit, knowin' he won't top it
              False prophets

              Chorus]
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              False prophets (La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la…)
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Yeah, false prophets

              [Verse 2]
              I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad
              He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that's been had
              By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin'
              Talkin' 'bout, niggas don't fuck with him, this shit is depressin'
              And I know he so bitter he can't see his own blessings
              Goddamn, nigga, you too blind to see you got fans, nigga
              And a platform to make a classic rap song
              To change a nigga's life, but you too anxious livin' life
              Always worried 'bout the critics who ain't ever fuckin' did it
              I write what's in my heart, don't give a fuck who fuckin' with it
              But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great
              Turns into an obsession and keeps a nigga up late
              Writin' words, hopin' people observe the dedication
              That stirs in you constantly, but intentions get blurred
              Do I do it for the love of the music or is there more to me?
              Do I want these niggas to worship me?
              False prophets

              [Chorus]
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this, be like this
              False prophets (La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la…)
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Yeah, false prophets

              [Verse 3]
              These rappers insecure
              They talk about being a man so much
              I finally understand that they ain't even sure
              'Bout who they are and why they do this
              Guess I'm included in that category as a nigga who done had the glory
              My highest moments come from tellin' all the saddest stories
              I've seen in my life, I be fiendin' to write
              Songs that raise the hair on my arms
              My lowest moments came from tryin' too hard
              To impress some niggas that couldn't care if I'm on
              Therefore from here on out, my hair grow out
              I care nothin' 'bout opinions
              I wanna give hope like the fountains you throw pennies in
              Hit the store, take your diss, make your wish
              This is dedicated to the ones that listen to me on some faithful shit
              I'm on some thankful shit
              But the real God is in you, not the music you coppin'
              I hear my old shit and know I can top it
              False prophets

              [Chorus]
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this, be like this
              False prophets (La-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la…)
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Be like this, be like this
              Somebody shoulda told me it would be like this
              Yeah, false prophets

                                                    Thats a lot of Turquoise and Magenta. Like every frame it has turquoise and magenta in it. It balances this video. I don't want to presume what he meant to do but while it seems random like he's hanging out to me it seems like they deliberately filmed these casual shots behind these colors.
