Buddy – Trouble On Central lyrics
[Verse 1]
Just so good at being in trouble
Spending my days out in the ghetto
Mama say that I need to be careful
Going downtown on the blue line metro
Car overheated and I can't afford a rental (shit)
Broke down Chevrolet, sitting on central
Turning on my headphones looking out the window
Lauryn Hill playing, it could be so simple
Damn, I just can't wait 'til I get on
What the hell is taking so long?

[Chorus]
I wish I had a girl by my side
Wish I had a brand new ride
I wish I had a light
I wish I had a private flight
I wish upon the stars sometimes
I wish I had a ride
I wish I had the finer things
I wish you wasn't so Cobain
I wish I had you (shit)
And I wish I wasn't stuck on Central

[Verse 2]
Just so good at being in trouble
Spending my days out in the ghetto
Papa say that I need to be careful
Heard a nigga just got popped at the Arco
Pros on the hoes stroll, junkies on narcos
Long Beach, Compton, Watts to South Central
Damn, I just can't wait 'til I get home (shit)
That's when a cop had pulled me over

[Chorus]
I wish I had a girl by my side
Wish I had a brand new ride
I wish I had a light
I wish I had a private flight
I wish upon the stars sometimes
I wish I had a ride
I wish I had the finer things
I wish you wasn't so Cobain
I wish I had you (shit)
And I wish I wasn't stuck on Central

[Outro]
I wish I was in control
Really wish I wasn't stuck on Central
I still got so far to go, yeah
Won't be stuck here, not for long
Just hold on, hold on
Work late nights and early mornings
I'm on it, I'm on it
Trouble on Central with the homies
Oh no, oh no
Pretty soon we gon' take control
Just wait on it, wait on it

    I've seen quite a few sites where people are asking what the lyric "I wish you wasn't so Cobain" means.
    This is only my opinion but I think he's talking about the late singer of the band "Nirvana"
    Who's name is "Kurt Cobain"
    Kurt Cobain was a huge star in the early 90s and is still often referred to as "The face of Grunge music".
    Assuming Buddy is in fact referencing Kurt Cobain in this lyric, I'm thinking there could be two possible reasons:
    1) It is widely known that Kurt suffered from extreme depression for most of his adult life and his death is believed to be suicide.
    So by comparing this person to Kurt Cobain, Buddy could be saying "I wish you weren't so sad, I wish you weren't so depressed or even I wish you weren't so suicidal"
    Or.
    2) Throughout his career in Nirvana, Kurt was famously known to be a massive heroin addict.
    So it's also possible Buddy could be saying "I wish you weren't so f**ked up on drugs all the time, I wish you weren't such an addict in general" or he's professing how much he loves her and is saying "I wish you weren't so addicting".
