–Verse– Long money looked so short from 100 feet out And counting down from 99 make you wanna reroute 98 will test your patience and all that you ’bout 97, 96, 95, hit a switch, like get a ride, hit a lick, f** walking with time Time will tell and mine will tell that we won ‘fore we died Or at least that’s what they sell us and all of us buy Feeling sorry for our mothers was all they replied Like “hurry up and buy”, and shots fly in response Hurry up and die is what they kinda really want Drop 5 in the front, or $4.99, new neighbors got these beers even higher Fear the replier, ’cause shots fly in response and all you get to hear is the choir The talk’s heinous but it’s here to inspire The motive, is all the above, it reads like a coroner’s love And nobody’s better, we all need a plug Introductions turn to falling in love, let’s keep it all of a buck Nobody’s better B, all of you s** But back, to the lecture at hand Going hand over fist, hand on a flip, no step on the plans You outside?, no step on the plants, that’s what the difference be And intuition be all we want as a centerpiece Center me as being, the minority that all the majority speaking thru And speaking to you Was a short money plan that turned into more Bet it all took a turn when we heard the allure It’s just the life, of solemnly swearing over approaches And leaning on a Beamer was all they needed to coach us Suited up for this AAU, and may their stoops Be protected as ever when that pay day loops It comes around with a high and a low, a give and a take They listen in for the breaks like finding a hole You dip from the jakes and find your way home My man went to the isle and caught the finest C.O The b**h amazing, well according to him when we would kick it on the V.I I’m hoping they transfer him and he kick it with Mumia Word to Destiny’s pops, we was taught that Heaven do watch And police talk with they heckler and koch I heard the latter, as well as my man saying That he campaigning to catch a Milly if soda ever do rock I wanted to put it all on a record or put it all on a screen Or 2 for 1 like I was selling tops One of my heroes is Spike, and another one is Jada So baby I still want head in the drop Love is love, love us for whoever we are And if you never stood for that then we could be never be y’all Learned how to stand tall when I was seated with my pops in the drop And he was preaching how to be what y’all not ’cause dude I was with pops every day, and when I wasn’t He called my mother’s crib either way and the discussions Was drowning out the sh** in the hallway And the staircase was adjacent to our front doorway So for that talk to drown out what the hall say Means that it was louder than what the liquor store made Raised by a goon who saw the bloom in his off spring Thuggin’ it, talcum on his middle finger, Malcom on his trigger finger Cutting up and shooting out But paused from 3 to 4 or whenever school was out Know that it’s Brooklyn forever son you already know You stab me I leak Henny like I said befoe’ So, you do me dirty I still won, rap like steel drums Rappers I feels none, except for Griselda Red carpet to the yellow tape what they sells us And they say that the money got us indebted to failures It’s tricky ain’t it?, sitting and waiting while the sh** is explained Short money never came with a residual frame and… –Chorus– Long money wasn’t nothing that they taught us right? Did whatever they could do to keep it from us right? Said it take too long to count it and get on it right? They put it far enough away from us to want it right? Long money wasn’t nothing that they taught us right? Did whatever they could do to keep it from us right? Said it take too long to count it and get on it right? They put it far enough away from us to want it right?
