    "The Hustle" Lyrics

    Common feat. Omar

    My eyes watch God from a place
    Where times is hard, hard times we embrace
    Everybody want a yard, cuz a yard means space
    Being broke is odd and leaves an odd taste
    In the mouth of the metropolitan
    The hustle is hollarin'
    Beautiful minds grind, grind for the dollarin'
    Whether dice scholarin' or white collarin'
    We all taught hustle to prophet like Solomon
    The young play corners, Sean Jean modelin'
    They get it from they momma, black music is fatherin'

    Blue and whites flash lights like parliment
    In court non-whites, wishin' they had Cocharan
    Tell your guy and them, yo the blocks hot again
    Aunties walking to liquor stores in moccasains
    My guy got a gig, on the side he barberin'
    Married a foreign chick
    so she could get a green card up in the hustle

    [Common] Just put it in your back and hustle
    The paper's stacked so hustle
    [Omar] Gon'! - Gon' get it and get me that
    Gon'! - Gon' get it and get me that
    [Common] Just move, and shake, and grind and hustle
    It's on your mind so hustle
    [Omar] Gon'! - Gon' get it and get me that
    Gon'! - Gon' get it and get me that

    [Dart Chillz]
    First to the third, I'm close to the curb
    Toast to the bird, now I'm posted to serve
    Heard is a verb when you pour dirt on the floor
    Bill collecters and the roaches working your nerves
    It's a ghetto truck for a ghetto boy
    To get in them ghetto streets and get him a ghetto toys
    So he can come so just work murder rate is increasin'
    I don't give a fuck long as my coke is decent
    And my rims blind the whole damn precinct
    Everytime you see a head in my lap you know she sinked
    I know I'm dead in this trap, that's not how we think
    Fifty shells all around on the ground, can't catch a weak blink
    Five went through me, two stayed in me to do my duty
    Only thing that subdued me
    Two weeks, same corner, new freaks
    New geese, all white AND 1's new sneaks


    [DJ Joe Sinista scratches bridge]
    "Can't knock the hustle!" "The Hustle!" "I'm in"
    "Im in" "I'm in too deep" "deep to sleep!"
    "Can't knock the hustle!"
    "The hustle!" "Caught up in the hustle!" "I'm gettin' high"
    "Can't knock the hustle!" "The Hustle!" "I'm in"
    "Im in" "I'm in too deep" "deep to sleep!"
    "Can't knock the hustle!"
    "The hustle!" "Gotta hustle up!"
    "I got to have it, have it...have it" (echos out)

    Some rhyme, some throw shows, some sow clothes
    Some hobo at the junction inbetween cars
    Some enter in functions inbetween stars
    Some teach, some preach saying they seen God
    Some put they money up, against me odds
    Flippin' real estate yo, stocks and bonds
    Dreams of rollin El Derado's bumpin' El DeBarge
    Whatever the dreams,
    stay on ya deem the world is ours, its the hustle

    [Chorus] - repeat 2X

    [DJ Joe Sinista]
    "Gotta hustle up!" "Stay hustlin'!"
    "Gotta hustle up!" "Stay hustlin'!"
    "Gotta hustle up!" "Stay hustlin'!"
    "Gotta hus-" "hustle up!"
    "Stay hustlin' hustlin' hustlin'!"
    (echoes out)
