Tayyib Ali – Like I Used To lyrics

[Chorus]

And I don’t wanna do the things you do
And I don’t wanna be the way you are
And I don’t even need to check my phone now
‘Cause I don’t wanna see you anymore

I wanna be like I used to (like I used to but it got so old)
But it got so old (be like I used to)
But it got so old, old

[Verse 1]

Yeah, once for the money
And two’s for the shows
365 days
Life on the road
I do it from the soul
Man, they try take the heart of it
Life good and this just the start of it
Left school, had to make it rapping
Big dreams so I’m taking action
I gotta get it for my self
Trust nobody else
Cold world
Deep breath, uh
Philidelphia is where they say I’m at
But since the Keith Stone I’ve been all around the map
Uh, now my ex tryna call a nigga back
But too busy grinding
I ain’t finding time for that
We sold out the show
Drink all the rose
Decked out the clothes
Then head out tomorrow
And that’s life
We party all night and a young nigga balling
Cause I can’t live it twice

[Chorus]

And I don’t wanna do the things you do
And I don’t wanna be the way you are
And I don’t even need to check my phone now
‘Cause I don’t wanna see you anymore

I wanna be like I used to (like I used to but it got so old)
But it got so old (be like I used to)
But it got so old, old

[Verse 2]

Only 19 with a full grown vision
I’m tracing back what I did so it’ll benefit in the end and
This travelling weed and women got me big Benjamin spending
But I’m never off my grind
This paper I gotta get it
This life had my interest since I was like 10
Shit, prince of my city
Shout out Will Smith
Philidelphia, born and raised
North side where I spent most of my days
With a dollar and a dream
Mobbing with my team
See me in the classroom, now I’m in the magazines
Been dreaming
To look at me now they can’t believe it
My life is a motion picture
I’m hoping you get to see it
Haters try CT like 203
And they ain’t never gon’ be shit, nah
Where we at?
In the cut ’cause the grind pays
Get it in our ways
Rhymin at the blink of my eyes my life changed

[Chorus]

And I don’t wanna do the things you do
And I don’t wanna be the way you are
And I don’t even need to check my phone now
‘Cause I don’t wanna see you anymore

I wanna be like I used to (like I used to but it got so old)
But it got so old (be like I used to)
But it got so old, old

[Verse 3]

Remember day 1
I been on my own since
And when I’m on, it’s my niggas who I roll with
It’s a good feeling everything that’s happening
But sometimes I be feeling like they hating
‘Cause the club owners know us
Your homegirl know us
Your main man know us
They all say I blown up
If that ain’t life then tell me what it is
All my niggas to the rear no fear

[Chorus]

And I don’t wanna do the things you do
And I don’t wanna be the way you are
And I don’t even need to check my phone now
‘Cause I don’t wanna see you anymore

I wanna be like I used to (like I used to but it got so old)
But it got so old (be like I used to)
But it got so old, old

[Outro Talking]

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned
But keep your head up
It’s Ali
Keith Small state of mind y’all
Swear to god I’m doing fine
We used to it
And all the things got so old
Got so old
