I say the world keep turning
The clock keep ticking
So don't be wasting time
They said it wasn't gone
Happened for me over night
Best believe this gonna take some time
You just gotta stay down

Yea I know I gotta keep it correct
But I still get to seize the connect
You know I gotta stay down
Yea, I had to struggle just like you
I'm from the ghetto, I grew up like you
That's why I gotta stay down

I see niggas got a hard on for me because my grind tight
Money right, I'm going all in shortly
Mi amigo down bottom, put the call in for me
No fucking business, make sure it's all there for me
Yo watch the diamond, no offense
Yea the block been good to me
But running these streets, there's a lot that you regret
The innocent corrupted, the niggas you don't fuck with
Shit I don't rap with all the niggas I grew up with
And that's over principle, yea that shit's real
Gotta keep it pushin', no way I could sit still
Bricks to the boy and pounds to that sense a mill
Gotta kill him in the suburbs serving them ten appeal
Now I'm back with the summer's report
Everybody tryna make it but a few niggas coming up short
Yea, some different shit day after day
So I stay out the way
But I'm still gonna play how I play

I say the world keep turning
The clock keep ticking
So don't be wasting time
They said it wasn't gone
Happened for me over night
Best believe this gonna take some time
You just gotta stay down

Yea I know I gotta keep it correct
But I still get to seize the connect
You know I gotta stay down
Yea, I had to struggle just like you
I'm from the ghetto, I grew up like you
That's why I gotta stay down

The hood be sayin' they so proud of me
I'm proud, love my city, the haters' my only allergy
Man they just mad cuz the music takin' off
I'm worried 'bout the dottie and the julie takin' off
All in the whip when the coupe be satin off
Make it easy for these niggas, the roof – I take it off
One button, let them see what the guts be like
All the bitches looking at me like it must be nice
This shit's workin', get your girl, your bitch flirtin'
I'm something like a pimp that got him on the strip workin'
Now I'm back, got the stomach for that
Just stay down like I'm supposed to, the money just stack
Where my niggas 'bout their business? where the hustlers at?
Quackin' the jungle with gorillas, we'll be confortable there
Yea, time is money, it's a race against the clock
Some niggas die tryin', some make it to the top

I say the world keep turning
The clock keep ticking
So don't be wasting time
They said it wasn't gone
Happened for me over night
Best believe this gonna take some time
You just gotta stay down

Yea I know I gotta keep it correct
But I still get to seize the connect
You know I gotta stay down
Yea, I had to struggle just like you
I'm from the ghetto, I grew up like you
That's why I gotta stay down
