Ronald Isley - A Week Ago lyrics

[Intro: Jay Z] It was all good just a week ago Had this all good just a week ago [Interlude: Too $hort] Last week I had everything. I had the money, had the cars, the b**hes, and the j**elry. And then my motherf**ing n***a started snitching. Beyotch! [Verse 1: Jay Z] Growing up in the hood, just my dog and me We used to hustle in the hood for all to see Problems; I called on him, he called on me We wasn't quite partners, I hit him off my P Let him unlock doors off my keys Yeah, we spoke, much more than cordially Man, he broke bread with me, my business spread swiftly The feds came to get me, we both fled quickly Wasn't quick enough to jump over the hedges with me Got caught, and that's when our relationship strayed Used to call me from the joint 'til he ran out of change And when he called collect and I heard his name I quickly accepted, but when I reached the phone He's talking reckless, I can sense deceit in his tone I said: "Damn, dog! What, 9 weeks and you're home?" He said: "Main man, you think sh**'s sweet ‘Cause you're home." I just sat, spat no more speech in the phone The crackers up there bleachin' your dome, you're reachin' I said: "The world don't stop, I've got to keep-keep on." From there I sensed the beef was on I ran to the spy store to add some more features on my phone To see if I had bugs and leeches on my phone Can't be too safe, ‘cause n***as is two-faced And they show the other side When they catch a new case; it's on [Hook: Too $hort + Jay Z] It was cool when you had hella weed to smoke And you bought a new home where you could keep the folks I don't see how this side of you could be provoked Uh-huh, uh-huh, it was all good just a week ago Funny what seven days can change A stand up n***a, now you sit down to aim Used to have a firm grip, now you dropping names It was all good just a week ago [Verse 2: Jay Z] Like I put the toast to your head and made you sell We both came in this game, blind as hell I did a little better, had more clientele Told you put away some cheddar, now you cryin' for bail Seventeen and I'm holding on to around a mill' I could bail out and blow trial and come around on appeal Had n***as thinking I was from uptown for real I had so much hustle, plus I was down to ill Like a Brooklyn n***a, straight out of Brownsville Down and dirty, down to fight to round 30 Freezing on them corners, still holding my crack Looking up and down the block, the f** is the dough at?? Came from flat broke to letting the dough stack You tell them feds I said: "I'm never going back." I'm from Marcy, and Marcy don't raise no rats You know the consequences of your acts, you can't be serious [Hook: Too $hort + Jay Z] It was cool when you had hella weed to smoke And you bought a new home where you could keep the folks I don't see how this side of you could be provoked Uh-huh, uh-huh, it was all good just a week ago Funny what seven days can change A stand up n***a, now you sit down to aim Used to have a firm grip, now you dropping names It was all good just a week ago [Verse 3: Jay Z] The lawyer I retained you said you leakin' some things All this after a week in the bing I'm mad at myself, ‘cause I didn't spot the weakling I would've bet the house you wouldn't speak a thing n***a, this was the oath, to the top or broke Even pricked our finger, anything that got between us We supposed to co*k the ninas, what happened to that? Instead you copped out to a misdemeanor f** it, the same thing make you laugh make you cry That's right, the same game That make you math could make you die It's a dice game, and sometimes you crap Who would've thought you'd get popped one time and rat? Now, you know that's bad when your sister is mad And your son gotta grow up, like, "This is my dad?" The labeling of a snitch is a lifetime scar You'll always be in jail, n***a, just minus the bars [Hook: Too $hort + Jay Z] It was cool when you had hella weed to smoke And you bought a new home where you could keep the folks I don't see how this side of you could be provoked Uh-huh, uh-huh, it was all good just a week ago Funny what seven days can change A stand up n***a, now you sit down to aim Used to have a firm grip, now you dropping names It was all good just a week ago [Outro: Too Short] sh** is crazy, man. All these n***as out here snitchin'. We was one step away from taking this crack money, and recycling it through the ghettoes, and building back up our own hoods. Now all you n***as start snitchin' on each other. I got partners doing 15–20. Wouldn't have been doing sh*t if you didn't snitch. Beyotch! It's about time y'all check that sh** out, man. It ain't all good, shut your mouth, just watch the game, and don't snitch. It sure will do a lot for you. Believe that, baby. Jay Z, Short Dawg's in the house, mane. You know I got it, got it going on. We got the money. Ain't got nothing to do with crime, baby. But I'm recognizing… [Interlude: Jay Z] You rat ba*tard!
