BROTHER ALI lyrics : "Games"

[Intro - Brother Ali - talking]
Ah, what's up man? (What up Ali?)
Ah, you still standing on this mother$#&@in corner?

%#@! ain't you 30 years old, mother$#&@er?

[Verse 1 - Brother Ali]

Ah, so when I pick up the microphone I know what I'm sayin
Wasn't long ago was facin the same situation
Carpet got ripped from me pacin

The rent's a month late, ain't %#@! on the way, I'm straight prayin
Ends don't meet unless you make 'em
The people don't eat unless you scrape and you see they ain't playin

Corner store credit is way thin
The World got it's way of weighin on your shoulders, it's degradin
It's like we got frowns tattooed on our faces

The school's ain't savin our new generation
Stare at our kids, they need a paradigm shift
The paradox is that parents aren't %#@!

Why you got cable? Your life is not stable
Lights not paid for, Nikes on layaway though
It's like we wanna look good while we drownin

Should grab a paddle and scrap our way out

[Chorus - Brother Ali] - 2X

Life's not a good when you livin it like this
Leave your lane for a minute, you might flip
It's like chains on your neck with a tight grip

Use your brain in this %#@! and you might live

[Verse 2 - Brother Ali]

While you in the drug game, my hustle got another name
You dyin, makin somebody rich, it's the $#&@in same
So quick to call a square job, Brother lame

Truth be told, you might wanna choose another lane
Yeah I'm bussin 'til my (*##$ $$# drop
You on the corner, pushin them (*##$ $$# rocks

And yes I'm gettin sweated by my (*##$ $$# boss
Your $$# steady runnin from them (*##$ $$# cops
This %#@! don't stop, the game ain't new

The pen's full of dudes who thought the same %#@! too
That city is a blind fold, here to keep your eyes closed
Sell your crack and it's all dough and fly clothes

%#@! ain't nothin like "The Sopranos"
Real talk, you're probably better off at McDonald's
Rappers all say they went from hustlin to rhymin

But look, everybody say the other one's a liar


[Break - Man - talking]
Man, $#&@ you Brother Ali

You always runnin your mouth
Just 'cause you got that rap %#@! cool
Man we on these streets mother$#&@er

Get out here and see how it is

[Verse 3 - Brother Ali]

It don't matter about me rappin, my $$# is still scratchin
Some day, I'm a be the "yo, remember back when?"
While I'm hear I got to really make it happen

Try to have emergency landing, instead of crashin
$#&@ sayin I've been here, brother I am here
Might not live here this year but I still care

Not talkin down to you, straight to you
No player hater my dude, it's plain true
Gotta live like don't nobody love you but you

As long as your blood move, tragedy could touch you
Struggle ain't nothin new, cards ain't gonna always land how you want
'em too

$#&@ it though, thug it through
Can't give up, as much as you'd love to
There's certain %#@! as a man we must do

You God damn right they made it like this
But I ain't tryin to wait for the day they might fix
