August Alsina - Downtown Lyrics

Downtown

(feat. Kidd Kidd)

Word got around that a nigga got shot
Heard a nigga drew down' and it still got packed
It was on my block trying to move these racks

Trying to stack this cash on the low, gotta dust these cops
We was right out there' chilling in the back of the trucks
Niggas got packs, trying to ditch them racks
X5 I was riding in the back with the brother's' in my lap
17 had no dreams,..
First class I was so lean, then fuck high-school, so I left green.

Hook:
No one told me life would be this way!
That's what nobody told me
Guess this is the game we chose to play
Crazy how it's always been the same!
People dying every day, that ain't nothing new
We do for downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these niggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em

Phone just ringing heard a nigga got gut
He was ' on the East last thing that he heard six shots
He ain't getting no love from the cops, nobody got gut
Real talk when I heard who it was, what damn is that?
It's money that killed my brother, now I gotta get back
Let 'em know cause a nigga gotta feel that!
'shot gun, with the shot gun
When you hear the shots come, nigga don't run!
Already there, it can only get worst
Hand full of steel cause the shit still hurts
Cut so deep when they put him in the'
That was only 25, had to put them in the dirt.

Hook:
No one told me life would be this way!
That's what nobody told me
Guess this is the game we chose to play
Crazy how it's always been the same!
People dying every day, that ain't nothing new
We do for downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these niggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em.

Once upon a time down town in a nine
What it do my' stood 5, 5
Big money on his mind, clothes and .. while his hands on his eye.
Shots six times run in front of my mind
Kind of 32, man, I'm looking to survive
On a pack' real niggas don't die!
Bitch, I'm from A town, slang crack on the same side
Blood stains there from a homie with his head cracked
Home Gs like A' they'll be doing this shit way back since A track.
And we get around, you can't get
You can get fame there from the way you're going to reign that
Truth from the.. watch how you aim that
Price on your head and we gonna take that
It's about to go down, it ain't about this, then you better go down
Sun going down, keep it going down!
Everybody go down scheme ass down!
All you gonna see is my eyes and my frown
Last thing you hear is my gun going out
It happens every day while I'm away
This ain't nothing new you grew up downtown.

Hook:
No one told me life would be this way!
That's what nobody told me
Guess this is the game we chose to play
Crazy how it's always been the same!
People dying every day, that ain't nothing new
We do for downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these niggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these niggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
