Big Sean - Wolves (feat. Post Malone)

[Intro: Big Sean & Post Malone]
Yeah, uh, that's right (Yeah)
(Yeah) Uh, yeah, yeah, uh-huh
I was raised by the wolves (I was raised by—)
I was raised by the wolves (I was raised by—)

[Chorus: Big Sean & Post Malone]
I was raised by the wolves, ate 'til they full (I was raised by—)
Run through the night, playin' with your life (I was raised by—)
Go against the pack, that's risking your life (I was raised by—)
Better play it right, yeah, you better play it right (Woah, woah)

[Verse 1: Big Sean]
I got loyalty in blood, I do anything for love
And everything for us (Us, yeah)
Doing everything like everything ain't been too much (I'm too much)
You know my favorite time to come through for you is the clutch
Last second, what a rush (Rush, rush), look
I'm the type to talk to the stars (I look up), straight up
These ain't tattoos, these are scars
My young dogs will tear you and the witnesses apart (Straight up)
They care 'bout starving more than they do 'bout a charge (Woah, woah, woah)
Me, I can't break a commitment (No)
I done seen people fuck up the whole team 'cause they couldn't play they position (Play your position)
Talking 'bout they didn't mean it, bitch, you know the road to hell was paved with good intentions
I see myself in my nemesis (See)
I contemplated forgiveness (No), I think I lost all my innocence (Yeah)
Ho, my life depend on this, this ain't no simple sucker shit (Woah)
Try and steal and you get bit, that's what you motherfucking get
I feel safer taking risks and I can't eat this on my own life
Put my back against the wall just to see how much I've grown, dawg

Big Sean’s and Post Malone’s first collaboration is a reflection on the environments the two artists grew up in. Sean draws a parallel between his family and wolves, implying dominance and loyalty to the pack. Big Sean detailed in an October 2019 interview with Entertainment Weekly: "'[That song is about] my family growing up. Everybody’s in there, my grandma, my mom, my brother — it’s like they were a pack of wolves and they were the sweetest and strongest.'" Sean revealed in the same interview that the track originally featured a verse from A$AP Rocky, but the guest appearance was later repurposed for another song on the album. On September 29, 2019, producing duo Take A Daytrip previewed a snippet of the song via Instagram Live. Post Malone’s involvement in "Detroit 2" was later hinted to in the album teaser. "Post Malone heard it early. I ran into him at a restaurant, and we were kicking it. It was like a mutual-respect-type of exchange. We were both working, so I’m like, “I got this song. See what you think.” When I sent it to him he was like, “Man, this is incredible. I have to, let’s do it.” —Big Sean in an October 2019 interview with Entertainment Weekly.
