[Intro: Vic Mensa]
Yeah, see the street lights?
I ain't slept in like, forty-eight
I'm back!

[Verse 1: Vic Mensa]
I'm here and y'all know they've been waitin' for me
Since I was fifteen, now I'm Yella, a hundred miles and runnin', uh

Easy come and easy go, that's why I work 'til midnight
I'm out of town, shorty very dirty on the turnpike
My piss clean, I caught a case, it happens to the best
The lawyer said don't smoke

I'm like, "Good Lord, boodah keep me blessed"
I'm buyin' Nike stock when I see these checks
Motivated by niggas because it's bigger than me
I know that, I might go back to my old shit
Bring the fro back, that's a throwback, yeah
Watch your mouth, why you tryna talk like you know somethin'?
My competition is myself, therefore I ain't worried 'bout no one
Not a soul, pot of gold
Lookin' like a stain, niggas'll wet your mug
Leave you behind yourself, you're playin' catch up
Boy, is that your blood?
'Cause I done blew inside my mind since I first wrote a rhyme
Y'all all late, rappers be stuck in the booth, I'm All State
They're imposters, steak and lobster
Surf my turf, better wear your chopper

Next to Oprah at the opera, okay
If you had
[Chorus: Vic Mensa]
Everything you'd ever wanted
Right in front of me, what's it gonna be?
The lights and the drugs and the girls finally drives me crazy
Drives me crazy
Drive me crazy
Drives me crazy
Drive me crazy

[Verse 2: Vic Mensa]
Gotta love it though, they hatin', homie
I be on Sunset, still go back to 68th and Stony
Cooked out my basement
Dropped my tape and got my homies' placements
I'll play the keys in my sleep on the beach, that's a dream vacation
Say you ain't heard, I'll let you lie, just know you digged your grave
No turnin' back once you done found
That that's the hand you played

Game over, on the drivin' range in the Range Rover
Halfway sober with my middle finger up, fuck these hoes
I'm a tiger in the jungle in the middle of the summer
With the wood on me and a fiend for the snow

(White girl?) She a fiend for the blow, I'm a G, to the code
You know me, I need Keke Palmer off TLC for that T.O.P
Keys to the Jeep and the deed to the boat
Y'all cruisin', y'all losin'
Yeah, I make pop music, still the king with the flow
This just the shit I've been thinkin' about, uh

How to Format Lyrics:

  • Type out all lyrics, even repeating song parts like the chorus
  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]

Genius Annotation

“Drive Me Crazy” features Vic Mensa over smooth, melodic dance music, revisiting the production style of 2014’s “Down On My Luck.” It has a weightless twinkling beat, and Mensa effortlessly bounces from acrobatic rapping to a soft chorus.

The song was released as a promotion single for Kaytranada’s album 99.9%. This is not the first time he’s worked with Vic, the two previously collaborated on “Wimme Nah.”
