Don't Forget About Me - August Alsina

Don't forget about me
Don't forget about me
Don't forget about me

I'll never forget where I come from, I'm from the bottom
The shoes on my feet, I remember how I got 'em
When I didn't have a car
I was on the bus stop, when I needed cash
I was selling crack rock
Didn't have a lot but a n_gga had enough
Had to keep it moving when the going got tough
It was bad y'all
Lost some n_ggas on the way, it's sad y'all
They couldn't make it here today

Now I do it for my homies
That'll never get to do it
And I do it for the mamas
Trying to make it on their own
Yeah I do it for the thugs
On the yard locked up
And I do it for New Orleans
Couldn't do it all alone
Believe it, while I'm out here on the grind
Looking out for me
All my homies saying
Dawg don't forget about me
I'm just trying to shine
And see what I can be
Cause I can hear them saying
Aug, don't forget about me

Don't forget about the hard nights
Don't forget about the downtown street lights
Don't forget about your brother
Don't forget about his daughters
Don't forget your little nieces growing up without a father
And son remember mama
Remember all the nights she had to put up with your drama
And for anybody else who's saying don't forget you
My advice is that you just be unforgettable

Now I do it for my homies
That'll never get to do it
And I do it for the mamas
Trying to make it on they own
Yeah I do it for the thugs
On the yard locked up
And I do it for New Orleans
Couldn't do it all alone
Believe it, while I'm out here on the grind
Looking out for me
All my homies saying
Dawg don't forget about me
I'm just tryna shine
And see what I can be
Cause I can hear them saying
Aug, don't forget about me

[Spoken:]
My birthday September the 3rd
So, August 31st
Uh, when I was, I was sleep, letting the day go by, you know.
I wake up and I got, like, 30 missed calls on my sh_t.
And so I woke up and I called my cousin back.
And it was like "Man, what's up, ya heard me?"
And a n_gga, n_gga told me a n_gga killed my brother, man
So from that point on it was always like, man, you got it either this or that.
And a n_gga can't choose that route, ya heard me.
Somebody's gotta survive.
So that's what it was.
