Steady on the grind
How to hustle some doe
Well then you already know
But mostly money be slow
Steady on the grind stead on the grind
My family depending on me
'Cause I got to make it happen
Ha ooh wa ooh ha ooh wa ooh
Steady on the grind
Money on my mind
Mommy got a job makin' 'bout six-somethin' an hour
Working forty-plus hours and kissing ***
She struggglin' she don't know I be hustlin' pulling my own weight
Over economics; it's logic meaning they don't got it
She makes $280 a week, standing on her feet
'Cause if taxes is 10%, and the rest if for the rent
See it really ain't about if you eatin' or not eatin'
'Nother day, 'nother way, 'nother dollar spent
