Funk You

LYRICS
I could've swear I told 'em, just fold!!
When the burner's #StraightFlush mane this ain't Texas Hold'em
I'll bring it to you first thing like Folger's
Warn 'em, I'm Warner and you Mark Bulger

...so respect my 'Ship
A tech'll will make detectives have to sketch yo' shit
Prick... I'll tell your chick like it is
Tell her we'll be forever then forever get it in!!

This is him, Mr. Up not Down-What's-Next
Fucking with Patron baby, this the SURF set
And worse yet, my best days are ahead of me
Difference 'tween us, you ain't seen it is this pedigree..

And if she sweet call her a cock charmer
I'll prolly have her gobblin' balls like hot shawarmas
Say your Grace, when you speakin' to the king
Recognize in my eyes that it's deeper than it seems nigga!!

Hook: YOU! fuck you & you & you
Fuck you & you & you
Ya fuck you too
Cause I don't give a fuck what they talkin bout. You got me fucked up
You give a fuck what they talking bout? You got me fucked up
We don't give a fuck what they talk bout, you got me fucked up!

L. Patron gettin' dome in the cockpit
Lookin' like Rome, but I'm home in this outfit
Flyest of the fly, high, you ain't top this
Talkin' like a top pick, you ain't even Top-6

Upset, mad see a nigga up next
Rollin' up is the only way you success
Fuck friends, with the fam and it feels great
In the field, and for real I heard the deal's fake

Real snakes, seen 'em slither; see the lilly withers
When you kill it like us, you gotta roll with Killas
It's whatever, keep it clever; this is Surf City
Denyin' all you guys, who arrive with worse biddies

Jésus in my jewels, hell of some ice
Way back how we lived, hell of a price
If this is heaven, hell of a life
And his load re-clipping', like the Prezzy's wife

Hook: YOU! fuck you & you & you
Fuck you & you & you
Ya fuck you too
Cause I don't give a fuck what they talkin bout. You got me fucked up
You give a fuck what they talking bout? You got me fucked up
We don't give a fuck what they talk bout, you got me fucked up!

“Funk You” is Leondro’s honest open letter to “all the doubters” who criticized the embattled rapper during his ascent to a career in hip-hop. The new track signals Leondro’s continued rise within the hip-hop community, a prospect deemed unlikely following several adolescent run-ins with the law. Leondro decided at age twenty that he would make his hard-working mother proud by not becoming the stereotypical “project” kid who ends up in jail. More information on Leondro’s intriguing story of redemption is available on his official website.

According to Leondro, “Funk You” is a song dedicated to all the doubters who criticized the rapper during his journey to stardom:

“Growing up, one of the many challenges I faced was dealing with the teachers and peers who said I would never be successful. My response to them is in the lyrics to “Funk You.” I hope they hear it.”

Leondro was born in Toronto in 1988. He was the youngest of three children raised in social housing in West End Toronto. His single mother worked three jobs to support her children. When Leondro was five years old, his mother gave him a life-altering gift that would spur his love for music: a Karaoke machine with a microphone.

As a teen, Leondro bounced between thirteen different schools. He was constantly in trouble, hanging out on the streets with the wrong crowds. In the late 1990s, Leondro discovered Baby and Cash Money, with whom he immediately felt a connection. Before the age of twenty, Leondro found himself in legal trouble. It was soon after that Leondro decided to make a difference in the world and not be the stereotypical “project” kid who ends up in jail. His mother meant too much to him, as evidenced by his tribute tune “Super Big.” Leondro’s musical style changed from dark and angry to upbeat and inspirational, characteristics still seen today on tracks such as “Girl You the Ish.”
