Nearly two months after Tiger Woods’ terrifying car accident, the cause of the crash has been revealed. The list of injuries also came forward, which included a ‘laceration’ on his jaw and more.

UPDATE [4/7/21, 7:30 p.m. ET]: A list of the injuries that Tiger Woods sustained from his Feb. 23 car crash has been released. The famous golfer was “knocked unconscious” and suffered a laceration to the lower front jaw, bruised his right and left rib cage, and had a fractured right tibia and fibula (located in the lower half of the legs) in addition to a “possible right ankle injury,” according to a copy of the traffic collision report that HollywoodLife obtained on April 7.

[Courtesy of the Department of California Highway Patrol]ORIGINAL: The sports world held its collective breath on Feb. 23 after news of Tiger Woods’ terrifying car crash in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Tiger, 45, suffered multiple injuries in the single-vehicle crash, requiring emergency surgery on his right leg. As the golf icon continues his recovery, the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department announced on Wednesday (Apr. 7) that its investigation revealed excessive speed was the main cause of the accident.

“The primary causal factor for this traffic collision was driving at a speed unsafe for the road conditions and the inability to negotiate a curve of the roadway,” L.A. County Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, said. “Estimated speeds at the first area of impact were 84 to 87 miles per hour in the final estimated speed when the vehicle struck the tree was 75 miles per hour. There were no citations issued and there are no signs of impairment.”

The Sheriff also insisted that Tiger wasn’t receiving any “special treatment” in the crash investigation. “That is absolutely false,” Sheriff Villanueva reiterated. “There was no signs of impairment. Our primary concern, once we, obviously at the scene of the collision, was his safety. And this is where you have to switch gears and make sure the person can survive and receives the medical care they need, and fire department paramedics and that’s why he was taken to a trauma center because he obviously had a compound fracture to the leg and it was life threatening injuries.”

Tiger was driving his Genesis GV80 SUV to an L.A. golf course when he struck a raised median around 7 a.m., local time, on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palo Verdes. The SUV crossed two oncoming lanes of traffic and uprooted a tree when he rolled his car down the treacherous embankment. Initial reports claimed that the “Jaws of Life” were used to extract Tiger from the wrecked car. Sherriff Villanueva later told reporters that was not the case, and rescuers deployed only an ax to rescue woods. Tiger suffered “crush injuries of both lower legs, including a compound fracture and a shattered ankle,” and Tiger was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for surgery.

While Tiger was laid up in the hospital, his girlfriend, Erica Herman, paid him a visit. The two of them have been dating since 2017, and she’s been seen cheering him from the sidelines at many major golf tournaments. Tiger’s kids, Sam, 13, and Charlie, 13, were seen with their mom, Elin Nordegren, out in Florida. Tiger was “fine with them being Elin” as he recovered, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “He feels that it would be too dramatic for them to see their dad hurt.”

Tiger’s team released a statement a day after the crash, saying he suffered “significant orthopedic injuries to his lower right extremity (leg) that were treated…by [an] Orthopedic trauma specialist.” Tiger also had fractures along the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula, and that the injuries were stabilized with a rod, screws, and pins. At the time, Tiger was “awake, responsive, and recovering.”

Five days after the accident, Tiger issued his first statement since the accident. After watching the WGC-Workday Championship, where various golfers donned red polos in support, Tiger shared how the gesture moved him. “It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the TV and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.”

A witness who lived near the crash site and went over to help reportedly told authorities that Tiger was “unconscious” when he got to the vehicle, but a sheriff’s deputy said that Tiger “later appeared to be in shock but was conscious and able to answer basic questions.” Sheriff Villanueva initially called the crash “purely an accident” and that there was no indication of impairment, per ESPN. This statement has been cited as a reason why investigators didn’t seek a search warrant for Tiger’s blood samples, which they would have tested for drugs and alcohol. Tiger was charged with a DUI in 2017, and he would later seek “professional help to manage [the] medications” that impaired his driving.

Investigators did obtain a search warrant for the SUV’s data recorder, aka the car’s black box. “We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel,” Villanueva said, per ESPN. “There are some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation, so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy, and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.”

Tiger Woods was allegedly found ‘unconscious’ and ‘didn’t remember driving’ following his car crash on Feb. 23, according to an affidavit in new court documents.

A man allegedly discovered Tiger Woods “unconscious” at the scene of his car crash, which the famous golfer couldn’t recall the cause of, authorities revealed in court documents obtained by ESPN on March 5. The man was a resident nearby the Rolling Hills Estates where the famous golfer’s incident took place on Feb. 23. After hearing the crash, the man walked over to Tiger’s wrecked SUV, which Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy Johann Schloegl reported in the affidavit found in the newly surfaced court documents.

However, the 2019 Masters champion was reportedly able to talk to the first deputy on the scene, Carlos Gonzalez, and “answer basic questions.” Tiger allegedly told deputies at the scene of the car crash and later at the hospital that he “did not know how the collision occurred” and did not remember driving, according to the affidavit cited by ESPN. HollywoodLife has reached out to Tiger’s team for comment.

These are new details to the public; the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department only revealed that Tiger’s 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV was involved in a “single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision” hours after the incident had occurred on Feb. 23. Authorities were forced to extract Tiger from his vehicle with the Jaws of Life, which is a hydraulic rescue tool for car crash victims. The cause of the car crash has still not been reported.

After receiving “follow-up procedures,” Tiger’s team revealed that the legendary athlete was “recovering and in good spirits.”

The message came as an immense relief to the many fans and golf lovers who sent their love to Tiger, who responded in a touching message five days after his crash. “It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the TV and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time,” Tiger wrote in a tweet on Feb. 28.

The first photos of Tiger Woods’ kids taken after their dad’s terrifying car crash have surfaced. The children, Sam and Charlie, were pictured with their mom Elin Nordegren as they left a soccer practice.

Tiger Woods‘ 13-year-old daughter Sam and 11-year-old son Charlie emerged in public following their dad’s near-fatal car crash. The first post-accident photos of Tiger’s kids were taken as Sam and Charlie left a soccer practice with their mom and Tiger’s ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, on Feb. 27. The 41-year-old Swedish model was also holding her 17-month-old baby Arthur whom she shares with her husband, NFL retiree Jordan Cameron, 32, while the trio was pictured at a park in Palm Beach, Florida. You can see the pictures of the family outing, here.

[AP]Charlie held a soccer ball and rocked sports gear as he walked with his family, who was also accompanied by Elin’s new husband. The soccer outing happened as Tiger was healing from the “multiple” injuries that the 45-year-old Masters champion sustained from a one-car accident on Feb. 23.

Tiger was driving on the “border of Rolling Hills Estate and Rancho Palos Verdes” in Southern California when his 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV was involved in a “single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision” on Feb. 23, which the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported hours after the accident. The legendary golfer had to be “extracted” from his damaged vehicle with the “Jaws Of Life” (a type of tool) and he was taken to the hospital afterwards. The cause of the crash was not reported.

Tiger suffered “significant orthopedic injuries to his lower right extremity (leg)” from the crash that were treated in an “emergency surgery,” his team revealed via Twitter. He later received “follow-up procedures” on Feb. 26, and after the second surgery, Tiger’s team announced in another Twitter statement that he was “now recovering and in good spirits.” Tiger confirmed this to be true by later sharing a heartfelt message for his fans after the surgeries.

[AP]Just two months before the car incident, Tiger got the chance to play with his son, Charlie, at the 2020 PNC Championship in Orlando, Florida. “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together. It’s been great watching him progress as a junior golfer, and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship,” Tiger had gushed in a statement.

For the first time since being involved in a terrifying car crash, Tiger Woods took to Twitter to thank fans and fellow golfers for paying tribute to him

Various golfers who played during the WGC-Workday Championship on Feb. 28 honored Tiger Woods by wearing a red shirt to imitate his signature look on the golf course. The tournament took place just days after Tiger was involved in a car crash, and several golfers and fans wanted to make sure Tiger knew they were thinking of him during this difficult time. Tiger took notice of the gesture, and took to Twitter afterward to let everyone know how grateful he was.

It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.

— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) March 1, 2021

“It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the TV and saw all the red shirts,” Tiger wrote. “To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.” This was the first time that Tiger had put out his own statement since being involved in the scary, one-car accident on Feb. 23.

The legendary golfer went through an extensive surgery on his right leg following the crash. He remains hospitalized as he recovers from the injuries. On Feb. 26, he underwent follow-up procedures, and his team confirmed that he was in “good spirits” as he recovered. “Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days,” the message read. “We will not have any further updates at this time.”

It’s unclear how this leg injury will affect Tiger’s future golf career, but People reported that he is determined to make a comeback. A top surgeon, who did not treat Tiger himself, also told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that Tiger’s past ability to “come back from adversity” is a good sign. “If I were to bet on someone with all those hurdles, with all those challenges, I would bet on that guy,” the surgeon explained. “What I’m saying is, there is no one that is a better soldier, a better wizard at all of it, than Tiger.”

Tiger Woods’ girlfriend has Erica Herman rushed to his bedside at a hospital in Los Angeles, following his terrifying car crash that severely injured the golfing superstar’s right leg, foot and ankle.

Tiger Woods, 45, has the woman he loves by his bedside now that girlfriend Erica Herman has arrived at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. She paid a visit to her man on Feb. 24, a day after his scary rollover car crash that left him with a badly injured leg. Erica was photographed heading into the medical complex to visit the golfing legend. She wore a blue and purple tie-dyed zip front hoodie, a white t-shirt, faded blue jeans and grey Uggs, along with a worried look of concern on her face.

Erica, 36, hid her eyes behind tinted sunglasses as she carried a large beverage cup with her. She wasn’t Tiger’s only visitor, as his caddie Joe LaCava arrived at the hospital alongside Erica. She seemed to already have been granted more than just a temporary visitor status, as she had several different hospital I.D. badges clipped to the pocket of her pants.

Tiger underwent extensive orthopedic surgery on his lower right leg bones, ankle and foot following his solo rollover crash, which occurred shortly after 7am on Feb. 23 in Rancho Palos Verdes CA. He had surgery to “open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones” that were stabilized by “inserting a rod into the tibia,” his doctor revealed in a statement Tuesday night. He added “Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins.”

Though Tiger endured extensive leg surgery, he was “currently awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room,” the statement noted following the procedures. It must have been such a relief to have Erica now at his bedside, as Tiger begins a long road of healing and recovery. The pair has been together since 2017, and met when she was the manager of one of Tiger’s restaurants near his South Florida home.

Tiger is lucky to be alive, as his 2021 Genesis GV80 suffered massive external damage from the rollover crash, but the interior remained fairly intact, saving his life. He was wearing a seatbelt, and his driver’s side airbag deployed. “Thankfully the interior was more or less in tact, which gave him the cushion to survive. Otherwise, it would have been a fatal crash, LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters at an afternoon news conference following Tiger’s accident.

First responder Deputy Carlos Gonzalez noted at the news conference that, “I will say that it’s very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this alive, because this is an accident prone stretch of road, We’ve seen a number of accidents on this stretch of roadway.” As the first to reach Tiger’s crash site, Gonzalez recalled, “He was calm and lucid, I asked him his name and he said it was Tiger,” adding “He didn’t seem concerned about his injuries.”

The golfing legend is known for his steely determination and ability to come back from past golfing injuries. He’s had ten that have required surgery, including five back surgeries dating back to 2014, and five separate left knee surgeries to repair various damage going all the way back to 1994. While he’s now suffering injuries far more serious than anything Tiger has ever known, former President Barack Obama said in a tweet sending his prayers and wishes of a speedy recovery to the golfer, “If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out.”

Erica Herman rushed to the bedside of her 45-year-old boyfriend Tiger Woods following the golf superstar’s harrowing rollover SUV crash on Feb. 23 that left him hospitalized. He’s suffering from a broke lower leg, along with foot and ankle injuries, and underwent extensive orthopedic surgery. Erica was accompanied by Tiger’s caddie Joe LaCava as they arrived at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, so the golfer got two beloved visitors. You can see the photos here.

Erica showed how she’s part of Tiger’s family at the PNC Tournament on December 20, 2020, supporting the golfing legend and his 11-year-old son, Charlie. Erica joined Tiger’s ex-wife and Charlie’s mom, Elin Nordegren, at the event, where they watched on as the father-son duo took the green. Erica also spent time with the former couple’s daughter, 13-year-old Sam. Tiger and Erica appear to be just as strong as ever. Learn more about Erica Herman with the five facts below!

How Long Have Tiger & Erica Been Together?

Tiger and Erica began dating in 2017, and they met through work! Erica used to manage one of Tiger’s restaurants back in Florida, according to Golf.com. Their first public appearance was at the President’s Cup in 2017, in which Erica rocked a bright red polo and khaki shorts to the tournament in Jersey City, NJ.

Erica Has Attended Tiger’s Golf Tournaments & More

Erica has been by Tiger’s side for a number of important occasions during his comeback. She was memorably with him when he earned his 15th Major title at the 2019 Masters. But The Masters weren’t her first rodeo! Erica also cheered on Tiger at the 2017 President’s Cup, as well as at the 2018 Ryder Cup. The couple also frequent other sporting events, and have been spotted at the U.S. Open cheering on tennis great Serena  Williams and more.

How Old Is Erica?

Tiger’s gorgeous partner is reportedly 36, which makes nearly 10 years younger than her older beau, according to Business Insider. But age is just a number, and if their relationship works, that’s what matters the most. Over the course of their three-year relationship, the pair have shown how devoted to each other they are, and it’s believed that Erica may be living with Tiger and his two children.

Where Is Erica From?

Erica working at Tiger’s restaurant in Florida was no coincidence – she’s originally from the Sunshine State herself, The Metro reported.

Erica’s Relationship With Tiger’s Kids

Although the pair keep their relationship fairly quiet, it’s evident that Erica is very close with Tiger’s two children. Whether it’s supporting them at tournaments and milestone events or sitting down for a family dinner, like in the image above, Erica appears to have fostered a really loving bond with Sam and Charlie.

It’s been so thrilling to see Erica continue to support her boyfriend – we wonder how he shows support to her, as well! Even better, seeing his kids and former wife get on so well with Erica is wonderful to see. Hopefully, as Charlie’s potential golf career begins to take shape, fans will get to see more moments like the PNC Tournament in the future!

Dwyane Wade reflected on the ‘unbelievable opportunity’ he had to play golf with Tiger Woods prior to his horrifying car crash, revealing the two really connected and talked about their kids.

Dwyane Wade, like so many, was completely shocked when he learned of Tiger Woods‘ horrific car accident that occurred in Los Angeles on February 23. The NBA great, 39, appeared on the Tuesday night episode of Inside the NBA mere hours after the crash occurred, and opened up about his outing with the decorated pro-golfer, 45, on February 22, just one day before the crash. “I had an unbelievable opportunity yesterday,” he said, reflecting on their outing.

“I picked up the golf club, like many in the Black community, because of Tiger Woods,” he said of the golfing legend, who broke barriers and more in his field. “He taught me a few things — hopefully, it translates,” he continued, relishing the fact that he got to “be out there with the G.O.A.T.” But Dwyane got mildly emotional, as well. Especially when it came to talking about the way Tiger spoke about his two children — daughter Sam Alexis Woods, 13, and son Charlie Axel Woods, 12.

“To be able to talk to him about Sam and Charlie, and his father…it was a great day,” Dwyane said. When it comes to his children, Tiger has been incredibly active in their lives. The golfer shares Sam and Charlie with ex-wife Elin Nordegren, 41. The couple divorced in 2010, but Tiger has since become encouraging of his youngsters pursuits. Just two months ago, Tiger and Charlie created a memory that will last a lifetime when they played golf together at the PNC Championship in December 2020.

Prior to attending the tournament with his son, Tiger gushed about the opportunity. “I can’t tell you how excited I am to be playing with Charlie in our first official tournament together,” Tiger said in November. “It’s been great watching him progress as a junior golfer, and it will be incredible playing as a team together in the PNC Championship.”

Sadly, more of those father-son moments may have to wait until the distant future. Roughly 24 hours after his outing with Dwyane, Tiger was involved in a “single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision,” which took place “on the border of Rolling Hills Estate and Rancho Palos Verdes,” according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Tiger was extracted from his 2021 Genesis SUV with the use of an axe, and immediately taken to the hospital.

Tiger Woods and his son, Charlie, playing golf [AP News].The athlete suffered “significant orthopedic injuries to his lower right extremity (leg) that were treated during emergency surgery by Orthopedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.” Following the extensive surgery that included “inserting a rod into the tibia,” Tiger’s team assured his longtime fans that he was on the road to recovery. He was “awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room,” at the time the statement was released in the early hours of February 24.

Dwyane, following the example of Barack Obama, Lindsey Vonn, Serena Williams, and more sent his hopes and prayers to Tiger and his family for a smooth, steady recovery. “We’re all shaken,” Dwyane confessed. “My prayers go out to him, and hopefully a speedy recovery for him, and hopefully he gets a chance to get back to doing what he loves to do, and that’s playing the game of golf.”

The scene of Tiger Woods’ solo rollover SUV crash shows how badly damaged the vehicle was when rescuers reached the golf legend. Fortunately he survived with only serious injuries to both of his legs.

Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive after his 2021 Genesis SUV rolled down an embankment in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA shortly after 7am on Feb. 23. Photos and aerial videos from the scene show his badly damaged vehicle, with the entire front windshield gone from where firefighters broke through it to help rescue Tiger. An airbag deployed, and the force of the impact caused the hood of the car to fly upwards, exposing the mangled engine and parts underneath. Fortunately Tiger was wearing a seat belt when the crash occurred, according to authorities. “Thankfully the interior was more or less in tact, which gave him the cushion to survive. Otherwise, it would have been a fatal crash, LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters at a 3pm PST news conference.

It was initially reported by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department that firefighters needed the jaws of life to extract the golf legend from the vehicle, but sheriff’s personnel later said at the news conference that the device was not used. Instead an axe was used to break the front windshield. Authorities said Tiger was alert and able to communicate with first responders on scene. The 45-year-old was then transported to the trauma center at Harbor UCLA Medical Center in stable condition with serious injuries.

The LA County Sheriff’s Department held the briefing where it was revealed, “he was alive and he was conscious — that’s the extent of that” and that Tiger had suffered serious injuries to both legs. Authorities also noted that there was “no evidence of impairment” on Tiger’s part. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle. “There were no other life threatening injuries to my knowledge,” Sheriff Villanueva told reporters.

Villanueva revealed about Tiger’s SUV, “At the time that it crossed the center divide into the point where it rested it was several hundred feet away. So obviously indicates it was going at a relatively greater speed than normal. However, because it is downhill, it slopes, and also it curves that area has a high frequency of accidents. It’s not uncommon.” He added that there was “No skid marks. No braking. So, apparently the first contact was with the center median and from there then cross into the opposing lane of traffic, hit the curb, hit a tree and there were several roll overs during that process.”

First responder Deputy Carlos Gonzalez noted at the news conference that, “I will say that it’s very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this alive, because this is an accident prone stretch of road, We’ve seen a number of accidents on this stretch of roadway.”

A neighbor near the crash site called 911 about the accident. Deputy Gonzalez revealed that when he reached Tiger’s vehicle, “He was calm and lucid, I asked him his name and he said it was Tiger,” adding “He didn’t seem concerned about his injuries.” Villanueva noted that Tiger’s manager didn’t want any more information about his current condition released at the news conference. The sheriff said that while in the hospital, Tiger was alert enough to ask that a member of his team be contacted.

Original: Tiger Woods, 45, was involved with a “single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision on” Tuesday, February 23, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The accident took place “on the border of Rolling Hills Estate and Rancho Palos Verdes,” around 7:12 AM PST. The vehicle was “traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse Road when it crashed.” Unfortunately, this was a major wreck, and the LASD reported it “sustained major damage.” Tiger, the “driver and sole occupant” in the car, was “extracted from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life.’”  It is currently unclear what caused the accident.

The traffic investigation is being conducted by investigators from LASD Lomita Station.” CNN reported that Tiger has “moderate to critical” injuries. HollywoodLife has reached out to Tiger’s camp for a comment on the situation and will update the post with any new information when it becomes available.

Sadly, Tiger Woods has a history of vehicle incidents. He infamously wrecked his SUV in 2009 after getting into a fight with his then-wife, Elin Nordegren. In 2017, Tiger was arrested in Juniper, Florida, over Memorial Day for driving under the influence. “I understand the severity of what I did and take full responsibility for my actions,” the PGA legend said in a statement afterward, “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans.”

“I expect more from myself, too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for their professionalism.”

The Kid Daytona – Lately

["You live and you learn"]

The Kid Daytona:

[Verse One]:
You must learn
Stick your head in a flame and it will burn
Stand in the way of a train and get hurt
Pay what you [?] don’t underestimate words
For what it’s worth
I gotta get the paper
For yesterday’s news and for what today births
And if that’s problem so be it
‘Cus nothing get’s worse than seein’
Niggas eatin’ in your face when you’re starvin’
Like how you keep up in a race when you’re doggin’
Better late then never they say remain confident
When offices is late with they offers
And radio they left New York for Atlanta, like Crawford
How can I not panic?
Lord forgive, give me your ears holla if you hear me talkin’
I’m finding it hard to keep the faith
On the stage with the monitors off, can you relate?
Chicks, that I seen today, be really all the same
I interchange the name [?]
But committment never came no longer than seven months
‘Cus that bitch named ‘Fame’ always seem to interrupt
And I’m chasin’ a [?] with it
Might be past that
These rap acts got this shit lookin’ like Katt Stacks
Whorin’ it out my worries are my concern
Before the jury is out I gotta learn, face first

[Hook]:
I used to not know a thing
But I knew what it was
Found out a few things and it’s only because
I’m tryna live for as long as I want
And not what for as long as I live
Now if you feel what I feel say what (say what)
And if you feel how I feel say what (say what)
Keep it movin’ don’t wait your turn (why’s that?)
You live and you learn (you live and you learn)

[Verse Two]:
You must learn
What they do is not my concern
He who remains cool [?]
Hey, I break through it and see it all
Moving place of all from
The fake shit basic, small change
And fall with your greatness, face and hall of fame
Ignore the rain, even when it’s pouring
Keep at least one eye on it
CBS, Katie Couric
The news they report it, or maybe not
A baby shot on [?] while the neighbours watch
Jamie Foxx the situation, play blind
To it all no snitching in the ghetto (as you recall)
Came on 60 minutes serial killers on 4E
Rather move away then call police
That’s what happens when you’re raised in the Beast
The stomach of it, no waving white flag for peace
My grandmother played the number, dollar and a dream
My niggas hoping for a come-up, plot and then they scheme
And that’s how it be, I just wanna be me
Word to Tiger Woods goatee
Mostly this what I came away with
Trusting niggas is [?]
But um, a thug changes
And love changes
And best friends become strangers

[Hook]:
I used to not know a thing
But I knew what it was
Found out a few things and it’s only because
I’m tryna live for as long as I want
And not what for as long as I live
Now if you feel what I feel say what (say what)
And if you feel how I feel say what (say what)
Keep it movin’ don’t wait your turn (why’s that?)
You live and you learn (you live and you learn)

One that take dick and talk shit

Million dollar lawyer, Jews, can’t wait to dismiss ’em (Jew!)
Spend ’bout a dub in Gucci (Gucci)
Got your bitch wet in her coochie (eughh)
My nigga just got out of prison (huh)
He already totin’ an Uzi (hrrrrt)
The pot is too big, jacuzzi (woo)
Money like Frank Lucas (Frank)
Walk out the bank in some Gucci (bank)
50 thousand to the goonies (uh)

Broke my wrist off in the pot (breakin’ that)
Tryna make a bigger knot (knot)
Jalapeño, block is hot
Duckin’, dodgin’ from the cops (12)
Put a hunnid in the stock (hunnid)
Put a four up in the pop (Act)
So much Gucci on me
Hoppin’ out with double G, they thinkin’ I was Wop (Wop)
Flooded wrist, I got the Breitling loaded (ice)
Now I can’t even see the clock (nah)
Draco make his heart stop
Split him like a Pop Tart (split him)
Gucci golf suit, Tiger Woods
In the back, Gucci golf cart (skrrt)
Heard you had to give the bread back
‘Cause you couldn’t get the sack off

Offset! Ayy!
Gucci my collar, Gucci my bitch
Spend a lil’ money, that shit ain’t no problem (spend it)
Not good, I’m Gucci
Gave that bitch back to the hood, she groupin’
My diamonds is clean, but my cup is polluted (lean)
I fucked the bitch and then she act like she knew me (smash)
Open your lip, the stick start shootin’
Like pop pop-pop pop brrrrt
I remember you used to be good on me
Now that I’m Gucci, I’m fuckin’ these thotties
Connect with the plug like Wi-Fi
You know we on top, it is no tie
I’m fuckin’ your bitch, nigga, why lie? (Smash)
Make the brick disappear, voilà
Yes I’m a Migo, you know I’m a Migo
I’m shittin’ on niggas like caw-caw

Rollie bust down, drippin’ on my clothes, nigga
