NAPPY ROOTS lyrics : "Live & Die"

[Intro]
Uhh, that's right
Uhh, know what it is


[Verse 1]
I remember mixtape exclusive, no name producers

You wasn't hot til' you sold by all boosters
Run up in the chicken coop, corner the rooster
We used to call that "jammin the chickens"

Them the old days, god damnit I miss 'em
We was rappin 'for we knew what it was
We was rappin for a reason to cuss

Now I just rap cause I'm $#[email protected] in love with it
Kinda shy guy, so I had to go public with it
Hip-hop and fish scales and a blue g wedding

Had twins called Hell and Heaven
Nobody really knows when they watchin a legend, til' he gone
Til' y'all kingdome come, in God's name

Come back like Christ and demand for his throne
Rock oil on floatin cologne
That's why these feel so (*##$es can't leave me alone, I'm gone


[Hook]
Yuh, I live and die for this %#@!

Hip-hop, the love of my life
Ha, uh, I live and die for this %#@!
Hip-hop, the love of my life

Ha, uh, I live and die for this %#@!
Hip-hop, the love of my life
Yuh, uh, I live and die for this %#@!

Damn straight, I'ma ride for my (*##$, ha

[Verse 2]

Yuh, and I do what I gotta
Live for this %#@!, and I prolly die bout it
Time to switch it up, the game done got too crowded

All you ^!$$%s jukin and jivin, I doubt it
Dealin this and killin that, lame sound childish
The only trap is in ya brain, ^!$$% snap outta it

Ain't nothin wrong, bein smart, black, and proud of it
We all came a long way, we got a thousand miles to get, %#@!
But ain't I allowed to vent?

we need more cuttin in, but still they sound a bit like whoever
Got it in, probably out now
Welcome to the city of men, it's goin downtown

But I am from a part of the slum, where the hustle is brung
Where they think that success wouldn't come
I am hip-hop, and it's strictly the song

Profess all the molds, I'm coming second-to-none
I'm hollin'


[Hook]
Yuh, I live and die for this %#@!
Hip-hop, the love of my life

Ha, uh, I live and die for this %#@!
Hip-hop, the love of my life
Ha, uh, I live and die for this %#@!

Hip-hop, the love of my life
Yuh, uh, I live and die for this %#@!
Damn straight, I'ma ride for my (*##$


[Verse 3]
Yeah, they figured hip-hop's a fad, it would die out quick

But it spread like wild fires, got the whole world lit
Can't stop boppin they head, they bumpin our %#@!
B.G.'s to germany, got 'em pumpin they fists

Got soldiers all over, gettin crunk in this (*##$
Shoot up the charts with number one hits
Shoot up the club, with a full clip

How you like us now? The whole world til' I dig, yeah
Hip-hop, the love of my life, my girl, my (*##$
My wife, my soul-mate, without her I'm sick

Tie the knot, jump the roo, we a perfect fit
No pre-nump, she was with me before I was rich
We fell in love when we was just kids

And see no love lasts as long as this
Til' death do us part, God forbid we split
Let nothin break this relationship
