Joey Bada$$ (joey Bada**) - 80 Blocks lyrics

[Intro] “I mean the reason they call him ‘Crazy Joe' he goes off once in a while. Uhh, but he's the type of guy you can go to and talk to, you know? ‘Uhh Joey, look these guys are doin' somethin' they have no reason to be doin', I mean, what's goin' on here?' Joey, he'd go out there and talk to him, then suddenly, Joe will go crazy, you know?” [Verse 1: Joey Bada$$] Hold up What's life like now? Shots of the expresso Gettin' star bucks been the basic manifesto I'm up early mornin', breakin' fast through the thresholds (uh-huh) They tell I'ma wear myself out, but that's the dress code (swag) Unlock the swag and n***a let's go We secure a bag, you insecure [?] One hundred thirty on the dash, that's if my n***a Lex drove Keep the heat, the stash, [?] Usually we positive, just tryna stay blessed though I'd rather to be safe, never know what to expect though In the streets, we livin' in, n***as invidious, serious And 'cause of this, inside of me, kept hidden, it's hideous (uh) And that's ugly truth, I'm speakin' from my troubled youth To whom I try to give a mental boost when I'm in the booth Been through the struggle, made it out, I'm the livin' proof I took the pain like I pull it from my wisdom tooth (n***a) [Interlude] “We're still surviving, you know we took our bruises and we came out. We survived, we here, we got this, which I think is out of sight” [Verse 2: Chuck Strangers] First me and Robi break up Now every day I wake up, with more bullsh** as I arrive to the pulpit Pro Era apostle (preach), n***a droppin' gospels Chucky be a reverend, Psalm 47 God is the king of all on earth But after him know that the Era is first (know that) Know it's all about knowin' your worth Thank Christ for savin' my life today Know I have the right of way I'm blessed to see a brighter day (blessed) Keep me away from ruthless You can teach a man a lesson, but don't make him feel stupid Put me on, don't put me down, my g We all out here just tryna be Fine lines between egos and insecurities You ain't less of a man if you don't squeeze (if you don't squeeze, don't squeeze) You not necessarily a man if you do Chalk it up to human nature, 'cause it's just what men do (it's just what men do) Self-destruct with no f**s, all of to give up I'm Chuck, Strangers [Outro] “And like I see a whole new future opening up for me and like I really don't want to do all the things I've done over the years before. I really don't want to do them again. But, like if I do them, like in the past, I don't go around bragging ‘I done this, I done that,' to myself so nobody knows about it. And when nobody knows, word don't get out and you don't get busted.”
