100 thoughts on “NF – When I Grow Up

  1. When I game I put on a Spotify playlist and listen to it and about 80 percent of it is NF and the rest is edgy music

  2. All the other rappers just put random words and curse words in song. NF puts you in your feelings and says the truth and DOESNT CURSE. The best ever

  3. You can tell NF is the best because he can get famous by talent not having girls barely wearing any clothes or expensive cars

  4. 1:58 NF dont worry I get you, your one of my inspirations
    And btw lyrics aren't weak there some of the strongest lyrics I've ever heard good gob

  5. Imagine the garbage truck was just random, it just happened to pass by and he filemd on it without the drivers knowing……..

  6. notice how here he gives his friends an album "moments" while in his new song "paid my dues" theres a sing "lost"

  7. Yeah, when I grow up, you know what I wanna be?
    Take a seat, let me tell you my ridiculous dreams
    I wanna rap, yeah, I know it's hard to believe
    And I can tell you're already thinkin' I will never succeed
    But I'm okay with it, I admit the lyrics are weak
    I been workin' on 'em, I'll be good eventually
    I understand you gotta crawl before you get to your feet
    But I been running for a while, they ain't ready for me, ah
    I know this probably isn't really realistic
    And honestly, I might not ever make a difference
    But that don't make a difference, I'ma have to risk it
    I been crunchin' numbers, you ain't gotta be a mathematician
    To see the odds ain't rootin' for me
    I can't lie though, it's kinda how I like it to be
    The underdog, yeah, you probably think you know what I mean
    But what I'm saying is they ever push me, I'm gonna swing, yeah
    I could go to college, get in debt like everybody else
    Graduate and probably get a job that doesn't pay the bills
    That don't make a lot of sense to me, forget the Happy Meals
    I don't like the dollar menu, I would rather make a mil'
    Huh? Make a meal? Nah, I said make a mil'
    Home-cookin', get the grill, how you want it? Pretty well?
    Everything I see is overdone to me, I'm not Adele
    But I'ma get a record deal and say hello to mass appeal
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah
    I just want to make a couple mil'
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah
    I just want to sign a record deal
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah
    Might not be the best in my field
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real
    When I grow up
    Yeah, ayy
    When I grow up
    Yeah, yeah, ayy
    I'ma make 'em notice me, rhymin' like it's poetry
    Everything I oversee, I just like to overthink
    Mockin' me, you pay the fee, no return and no receipts
    Those of you that don't believe, quiet, you don't know a thing
    Quiet when I'm tryna sing, quiet when I'm making beats
    Quiet when I'm tryna think, sorry, I don't mean to scream
    I just feel like no one really gets me and it's sad to see
    'Cause someday I'ma grow up and show all of you it's meant to be, yeah
    Anybody wanna hear me rap? "No"
    Come on, let me play a couple tracks, "No"
    Come on, I can spit it really fast, "No"
    You think I should throw this in the trash? "No"
    Tricked you, haters, go away before I hit you
    I am not a beggar or a kiss-up
    You don't understand? Well, I forgive you
    I am not a quitter, you ain't really think that, did you?
    Maybe someday I could even be up on the radio
    Have a tour bus and maybe even play a couple shows
    Everybody in the crowd singin' every word I wrote
    Tellin' me that I am not the only one that feels alone
    Huh? You feel alone? Yeah, I kinda feel alone
    Wonder if that feelin' ever goes away when you get old
    Will I ever make it as an artist? I don't really know
    Might not make a lot of dough, I'ma have to try it, though
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah
    I just want to make a couple mil'
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah (yeah)
    I just want to sign a record deal
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah (okay)
    Might not be the best in my field (ayy)
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real (ayy, oh)
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills (woo)
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah (yeah, the way I feel)
    Yeah, I just want to make a couple mil' (ayy)
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah (to the fam in the will)
    I just want to sign a record deal (woo)
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah (a house up in the hills)
    Yeah, I might not be the best in my field (ayy)
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real
    When I grow up
