  • Got a little shine now you frontin’ or something

  • And if you’re hoopin, you’re doo doo I’m poop scoopin’
  • Hope it doesn’t rain, since I caved the roof in
  • I’mma pull up in your face like I know your addy
  • I know you seen me skate I got nothin’ but decks

The Dreamer Court

Next, you will need to head over to the Dreamer Court to record sounds for the character known as PhD Monk. The “sounds”, however, are secondary for the first part. Instead, the first portion included teaming up with J. Cole in a 3v3 game at the private Dreamer Court.
