Wiz Khalifa, Nicki Minaj – “True Colors”




Colors, colors, everywhere!

This song is undoubtedly full of color! 

Wiz Khalifa and Niki Minaj…. 2 Big names in the industry that have been splashed across headlines everywhere for solo entries onto the charts and concert tours, as well as collaborative ventures taking spots, to a now first time duo of rappers/singers collaboratively mashing the rainbow to bits with upcoming releases like Wiz’s “Blacc Hollywood” and Nicki’s “Pink Print”, and leaves the remaining mix of colors to combine and result in “True Colors”.

This is not a cover, it’s not a remix, it’s not to be confused with “True Colors” performed by either Cyndi Lauper or Phil Collins as they share only the title name.

Wiz’s Blacc Hollywood album set to release later in the week on August 19th. He’s already released 6 other singles from the 13 track listing that accompanies this title, while there are longer track listings depending on here you opt to purchase the album that include up to 5 bonus tracks. 

True Colors is suitably the closing song on the album as a token of appreciation to fans, family, friends, and others in the industry. The song features a tender slow-moving beat and is lyrically centered around those that have stuck by Weezy through his journey leading up to this point in his career. 

With Weezy lyrics citing “I can do bad by myself / These days you never can tell / ‘Cept the people who been with me and they know who they are / Yeah they know my true colors and they know who they are,” which Khalifa sings in the chorus that Nicki follows in the half singing, half rapping style Wiz established including the lyrics “They know I’m a mogul for real / I branded a color / Pink is the color / Can’t wait to reveal a Pink Print cover,” which is also scheduled to release later this year.

The lyrics may get somewhat “cheesy” but that’s ok cuz it’s all Weezy!! It’s the from-the-heart nature of this song that makes up for the ridiculousness of it at times. However the heart of the matter is Wiz’s True colors as a loving guy who’s loyal to those that are loyal to him.

Other collaborators on the album include guest appearances by Ghost Loft, Snoop Dog, Nas, Rick Ross, ScHoolboy Q, CurrenSy, Jeezy, Pimp C and Taylor Gang members Juicy J, Ty Dolla Sign, Chevy Woods and Project Pat.

“True Colors”
(feat. Nicki Minaj)

[Intro: Wiz Khalifa (Nicki Minaj)]
Taylor Gang, let’s get it
(Young Money)

[Verse 1: Wiz Khalifa]
There’s some people coming with me and I know who they are
And some that ain’t gon’ make it and I know who they are
And I know they ain’t gon’ like it but it’s quite alright
I ain’t need no one my whole life, and I done alright
I can do bad by myself, these days you never can tell
But the people who been with me and they know who they are
Yeah they know my true colors and they see what they are

[Hook: Wiz Khalifa]
When I pull up in that white on white, they ain’t gon’ like it
And that green inside they hide it, cause that’s they true colors
When I pull up in that white on white, good God almighty
And that green inside my pocket, yeah, cause that’s my true colors

[Verse 2: Wiz Khalifa]
All I do is smoke weed and get paid
That jealousy I can see in they face
That green is all that I make, call it fate
Or call me perfect with timing
Call me crazy, don’t call my phone
Call me covered with diamonds
Call me boss man, young Khalifa man
I was on the ground when y’all wasn’t sticking to the plan
Learn the game just like the back of my hand
Back in demand, back with them bands
She on her back, back of the Benz (God damn)

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Nicki Minaj]
I said, “Baby we made it”, even though niggas hated
Did everything I stated, I am so innovative
All my girls getting faded and all my whips candy painted
Call me Nicki M. Ali, these bitches know I’m the greatest
Cause I pull up in the white
Pull up with the black
Pull up in the back
Pull up with some niggas that be yellin’ back
Have the hella best fans, hella wet sands, hella jet plans
Married to the game they don’t need a best man
They know I’m a mogul for real
I branded a color, pink is the color
Can’t wait to unveil the pink print cover

[Hook]

[Bridge:]
Yeah, yeah cause that’s my true colors
Yeah, yeah cause that’s my true colors
When I pull up in that white on white, they ain’t gon’ like it
And that green inside my pocket, yeah, cause that’s my true colors

[Outro: Wiz Khalifa]
Always been, always was
The one who win, ain’t tryna take a loss
Counting faces, spending faces
Being faceless, look at they faces
Real that’s my true colors
Rich that’s my true colors
If you a real nigga, let’s get it, let’s get it
If you a rich nigga, let’s get it, let’s get it

[Hook]

[Bridge]
