G-EAZY – Charles Brown lyrics




[Chorus: Jay Ant]
Trying to know what the future holds
But it ain’t for you to know
I treat my self like the usual
But it ain’t for you to know
I’m thinkin’ clear, never losin’ hope
But it ain’t for you to know
Tell myself like usual
But it ain’t for you to know

[Verse 1: G-Eazy]
Sometimes I gotta be dolo alone, just walkin’ around
Young Gerald, young Charlie Brown
Some sh*t’s better to keep to yourself than say aloud
Some sh*t you see and they don’t, so I simply jot it down
It was written, had the vision as a youth that I would make it here one day
A flight to the top, cop a one-way
But looking out the window on the subway, 16, slapping Mac Dre
Somehow I always knew it’d be that way
I felt this so clear it’s like a rode a time machine and I saw it
I paint the picture and draw it, I fold it up in my wallet
Keep it with me everywhere I go just as a reminder
Told myself every time I get discouraged or tired
I got greatness inside of me
I go against the greats until they tired of me
I’ve heard it all, nothing surprises me
See, I’m the one, I’m the anomaly
But never mind me, I’ll just be up over here killing ’em quietly
You know?

[Chorus: Jay Ant]
Trying to know what the future holds
But it ain’t for you to know
I treat my self like the usual
But it ain’t for you to know
I’m thinkin’ clear, never losin’ hope
But it ain’t for you to know
Tell myself like usual
But it ain’t for you to know

[Interlude: G-Eazy]
Yeah, and I heard ’em say
Nothing’s ever promised, tomorrow or today
From the Bay, like 40 and Dre
So Imma do it in a major way
I said, I heard ’em say
Nothing’s ever promised, tomorrow or today
From the Bay, like 40 and Dre
Chasing dreams, it’s the only way

[Verse 2: E-40]
I’m still here, remember these lyrics
And when I’m dead and gone, I’ll be there in spirit
Don’t let ’em run my name in the mud, don’t let ’em smear it
Just pour some Rossi out, go ahead and tear it
One of a kind, no copy
Tell your grandchildren’s children ’bout me
Tell ’em I was the illest
Let ’em know I spit the realest
Went from pennies and nickels to large amounts
Kept it in the hood, where it counts
Never was them, always was him
Had to prove myself, time and time again
Just when they thought it was it, he back with another hit
We brought the Bay to the rest of the world (who was it?)
E-40 and Gerald

[Chorus: Jay Ant]
Trying to know what the future holds
But it ain’t for you to know
I treat my self like the usual
But it ain’t for you to know
I’m thinkin’ clear, never losin’ hope
But it ain’t for you to know
Tell myself like usual
But it ain’t for you to know

[Verse 3: G-Eazy]
So where I go from here?
I did the most you could possibly pack into a year
Now I can either fall off and completely disappear
Or, I can move up to the highest tier
Conversations with Gerald, standing in front the mirror
Ask myself like “Fuck the bullsh*t, what you really fear?”
We all want to be understood, hope they hear us clear
But that sh*t never happens everywhere
So I just do me on my “f*ck the world” sh*t
I’m riding through the town listening to Earl’s sh*t
Been trying to lift the Bay up, I could probably curl it
I learn from the legends, they tell me “you’re it”
So I always maintain and try to stay sane
But, just do you, give a f*ck what they sayin’
We artists are all alike, we feel the same pain
You want the whole world? You want the same thing

[Chorus: Jay Ant]
Trying to know what the future holds
But it ain’t for you to know
I treat my self like the usual
But it ain’t for you to know
I’m thinkin’ clear, never losin’ hope
But it ain’t for you to know
Tell myself like usual
But it ain’t for you to know




Drake – You Got Me ft Promise & Sacario Lyrics




[Verse 1: Promise]
I Promise, I try College
Did it but I quit it they couldn’t define knowledge
For me, I got it, So I’m honest
He living, Spitting Wisdom with some of the top artists
Who are not flawless, but my part is
Yet they don’t see what I’m doing is not (?)
They like, Promise, why bother
Well living in the sewer, it’s filled up with hot garbage

[Hook: Promise]
As long as I got a pen and a microphone
And sweet beats to recite my songs you know
You got me
You got me
You got me
Give me a stage to recite my poems
Lights low when the mic is on
You got me
You got me
You got me

[Verse 2: Drake]
If this don’t sell, Imma make it sell
And criticism’s invited, I take it well
My savings account got a vacant smell
And priorities shift when you take a L
Every time I feel like leaving
Somebody’ll play Comeback Season
And that’ll give me enough of a reason
To stand outside trying to jingle my keys and
I guess I’m attached to her
Can’t fathom going back to a bachelor
When you’ve been in a Range since you started high school
It’s hard going back to the Acura
Yeah, yeah
So Imma stick around as the rain trickle down and the cars get sold
These rappers is all thickle but a ways it could sound
Full of loud and go and put her face to the town

[Hook: Promise & Drake]
As long as I got a pen and a microphone
And sweet beats to recite my songs you know
You got me
You got me
You got me
Give me a stage to recite my poems
Lights low when the mic is on
You got me
You got me
You got me

[Verse 3: Sacario]
You got me
And you got me
And you got me
When I said I’m not a rapper it’s not cause I am
It’s cause my momma said I’m not like them
I don’t look like them
I don’t act like them
Only way you know I rap is if you see me rappin’
And I am the truth I can’t lie
Hand on the bible in the booth with punch lines
And New York City dumb high
Too much champagne
Threw it up like gang signs
You wanna know if you got me?
Then watch me
Or watch me through a train, I
Cause I am Sacario
The same guy
Who flow like
Flow like I [?]
We don’t like no [?] nada
Rappin’ ass actor until you need an Oscar
And the world know who I are
Why you think Promise featured a pop star?
Sacario

[Hook: Promise]
As long as I got a pen and a microphone
And sweet beats to recite my songs you know
You got me
You got me
You got me
Give me a stage to recite my poems
Lights low when the mic is on
You got me
You got me
You got me


Lecrae – River Of Jordan (feat. Breyan Isaac) (From The Shack)


[Pre-Hook: Breyan Isaac]
They say wash in the river of Jordan
Wipe away your sins like I’ve done mine
And the people then they’ll be equals
There’s too many sinkholes we’ve left behind

[Hook 1: Breyan Isaac]
I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions

[Verse 1: Lecrae]
Yeah
I gave up my all
When I felt lost not a one of ya’ll called
When I took off everybody else stalled
I don’t really understand what ya’ll on
What ya’ll want
I can’t live, can’t be free
I can’t be here
Gave my sweat gave my tears
Gave up all the best of my years
I done gave everything
I ain’t gained anything
Just pain and more sadness
Just broad strokes and blank stares
No details and no canvas
Nah I ain’t livin for your love
Case dismissed I don’t need another judge
I done got everything off my chest
But I got one more thing to confess

[Hook 2: Breyan Isaac]
I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah

[Verse 2: Lecrae]
So Imma leave religion for a relationship
Never sell my soul Imma sell my ship
I failed you all because I failed to help
Just know I failed myself
But faith keeps me from folding
It’s all I got left I’m left here with no one
I ain’t choose You but You say I’m chosen
And when I feel lost the cross all I hope in
I lost my religion but I found God
Sounds odd but I’m better at seeing how far
Did I come from the dark is the nights to the light
Irregardless of all of my many flaws
Amen
I ain’t livin for your love
Case dismissed I don’t need another judge
I done got everything off my chest
But I got one more thing to confess

[Pre-Hook: Breyan Isaac]
They say wash in the river of Jordan
Wipe away your sins like I’ve done mine
And the people then they’ll be equals
There’s too many sinkholes we’ve left behind

[Hook 2: Breyan Isaac]
I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah

[Outro: Breyan Isaac]
They say wash
In the river of Jordan
I’m losing my religion
