    Lyrics

    [Talk]
    This song is about a nigga always trying to keep you down you know
    now touch that

    We made something from nothing
    And vowed to never tear it apart
    We turned the street hustle into an art
    That would quickly change life forever for us
    No more riding bikes or catching the bus
    We on the roll up, money to fold up
    With cognac and cooked yola
    Got the neighborhood about to blow up, but hold up
    I see this van sittin', this old cat in a fitted
    Trying to get your little homey tore up
    Yo bruh, we ain't working on this corner take your ass on, dog
    Before you make me feed your ass to my hogs you fucking faggot
    I know you want to catch me with this bag so you can hide me
    Or with my 44 so you can 45 me
    You put this shit off in our neighborhoods and sweat us
    And when you finally catch us up you give us letters
    A cold thing
    Just when a nigga reach his gold man
    You hand him a case for easing out the dope game
    And I'm...

    [Chorus]
    Watching us unfold with the times
    He don't really want a nigga to climb
    You'd rather separate me from my family forever
    Instead of trying to keep us together
    You motherfuckers would rather keep me down...

    So what I rap about these streets
    That don't make me be no less of a man
    Than a person that do work with his hands
    It's bad enough I gots to deal with all these pressures that stand
    You tryin' to make me stray away from my plan
    Know what I'm sayin'?
    I'm from the gutter, where all we had was one another
    No wheat bread to butter, from one bed to the other
    All uncles and no brother
    My mother's at work
    My grandfather was my dad
    And when he died it hurt
    And as I hold back the tears my eye-wells swell
    I been praying for heaven, I been living in hell
    And these niggas in my age group is dead or either locked up
    The bitches no better, they smoked out or knocked up
    But I still love my hood, that's where it started
    Ain't no hard feelings, we partners nigga, regardless
    That's why you always see me coming around
    Cause I could never turn my back on my town
    But still I'm...

    [Chorus (2x)]
    Watching us unfold with the times
    He don't really want a nigga to climb
    You'd rather separate me from my family forever
    Instead of trying to keep us together
    You motherfuckers would rather keep me down...

    Money never changed me
    Money changed the people around
    Now they plot to try to keep me down
    But still I rise like yeast
    Your whole conversation bout B
    Fuck a nigga talking bout me, I'm a G
    The realest motherfucker ever done it
    You can't continue to pimp me and y'all eat from it
    So fuck every soul who ever felt like I owed
    Them a god damn dime, or a god damn rhyme or a god damn chance
    Motherfucker you sad
    You a grown ass man, holding a nigga hand
    Now get out on your own, stop depending on your homes
    To chuck you a bone, and stop throwing stones
    And that goes for everybody thinking it's them
    Fuck you, you and you
    Her, him and him
    Tom, Dick and Kim
    All of y'all stand accused
    Saying fuck to me
    And I done bought your children's shoes
    I'm...

    [Chorus (2x)]
    Watching us unfold with the times
    He don't really want a nigga to climb
    You'd rather separate me from my family forever
    Instead of trying to keep us together
    You motherfuckers would rather keep me down...
