Lyrics
Bills due on the kitchen table
Mama walked past 'em 'cause she ain't able
Watching mama's family sister tryna watch cartoons mutha****a came through and clipped the cable
Get a job that's the usual
Mama had a job that ain't do enough
Mama hired me I'm sacking groceries up
90 days later I was posting up
Quarter pound of weed 250 strong
Staying out late bringing profit home
It's me and Big G tryna stack it up
**** ain't been the same since my ***** gone
I looked up to *****s like Hookshot
*****s like Lil Pat and Woo Woo
I was on the block as a young boy
Watching them hustle it was like school

I hustled with the greats, ate with the vultures and the snakes
My days turned to nights my nights turned to days
Streets got me paid
And I know Imma pay the price for it
I know it
One day Imma pay the price for it
I know it
I know it
I know it

First time I seen 10 bands
First time I seen 100 grand
First time I seen 1 mill
I knew **** was 'bout to get real
Homeboys start acting different
**** changed I ain't even tripping
Same ***** used to ride for 'em
One time I was on the front line for 'em
I was a hitta for a dopeboy
Play crazy and you know boy
I'm in the hood with the doors up
***** I ain't never froze up
Bad *****es chose up
They like me or the lifestyle
***** I don't really give a ****
But Imma burn the head in a meanwhile

I hustled with the greats, ate with the vultures and the snakes
My days turned to nights my nights turned to days
Streets got me paid
And I know Imma pay the price for it
I know it
One day Imma pay the price for it
I know it
I know it
I know it

**** different you ain't even notice it
All the hustlers I ain't even quote it
New Wraith I ain't even rode it
Nick got a strap he ain't even load it
**** real growing up in the projects
Tryna stay real in the process
Seen a pump knock out a ***** intest'
Young boy standing there tryna digest it
Where all the real *****s at that's my question
Never got indicted that's my blessing
When I put it on the Gram that's to motivate you
Inspiration *****, that's not flexing
New Lambs, new Raris
Little homie fighting charges
Make bond, get 'em lawyers
Green dot so they can call you

I hustled with the greats, ate with the vultures and the snakes
My days turned to nights my nights turned to days
Streets got me paid
And I know Imma pay the price for it
I know it
One day Imma pay the price for it
I know it
I know it
I know it
