Get it lyrics

Niggas, you asked me why I do this for?!
I do this for my CITY!

Constantly on the come up
Constantly on the come up
But I always get this feeling
And it's constantly on my stomach
AND I ALWAYS FOLLOW MY INSTINCTS
When you come from where I come from
Then try to make a nigga feel like King Kong in a concrete jungle
'Cause they don't teach niggas how to deal with anger
They only teach niggas there ain't nothing real but danger
POLITICS WILL NOT SWING IN OUR FAVOR
'Cause all of us rappers are entertainment
But I still woke up and said a young nigga get it
'Cause this is your life, you can choose how you live it
Are we just lost in the city of madness?
Or do the powers that be lack human compassion
I don't know

You only got one life, you know
And this life is under my control
When you talk about politics
It's a riffle of lightning bolt
Tell me, how do you fight a war
WHEN THE PRICE IS FOR YOUR SOUL
When you're gambling with your life
That's a hell of a paradise to go
They say, "Bobby Ray, where you went?
All you talk about is whips"
I say you can lead a horse to water
But you can't make it take a sip
Yeah, everybody got their own two pennies
But what does that mean if it don't make sense
I see the crowd, they hands up high
But what does it mean?
What do they get at the end of the day
The when I get paid and they go home and dude, they late
How can we ever be free if policies don't ever change?
ARE WE ALL JUST LOST IN A CITY OF MADNESS?
Or do the powers that be lack human compassion
I was the big human lack of compassion
