ROY G. BIV cover


Mick Jenkins


Was this freckle face nigga Mogs used to call Red

Roll tide soul had auburn in his head

Light brown skin, a family trait he didn't share

Used to try to make niggas use his real name instead

Color theory, uh

Color theory

It's a whole lotta green

All kinda green in this bitch

I understand why it infatuate

You could be in limelight's too

All you gotta do is exaggerate

Smoking on something chartreuse

I guess a nigga tend to oversaturate wit' this hue

See blue faces and jaded eyes

And olive branches and blatant lies

You could get this too

Color theory

What brush stroke you get stuck in?

What kinda pallet you mixed up in?

What perspectives did yo' shit upend?

Them black lights come out and we see that we all stained

Them pink slips come out and you can't have enough drive

They been pulling yellow cards on the squad all game

We just tryna kick it

Channel Orange, got enough vibes

Can I be frank?

Fuck the silver and blonde

Need these ebony flows

Out the white the gaze and beyond

Ain't no more gray area though

That ain't the shade that we on

Color theory
