Downtown - August Alsina feat Kidd Kidd

[Verse 1:]
Word got around that a n_gga got shot
Heard a n_gga drew down' and he bucked so his ass it got popped
We was on my block trying to move these rocks
Trying to stack this cash on the low, gotta duck these cops
We was right out there' chilling in the back of the track
N_ggas got packs, trying to ditch them racks
X5 I was riding in the back with the brother's' round kicking in the gat in my lap
17 had no dreams, drinking four loco's riding codeine
First class I was so lean, then f_ck high-school, so I left green.

[Hook:]
No one told me life would be this way!
I swear 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
When you from downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these n_ggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em

[Verse 2:]
Phone just ringing heard a n_gga got got
He was ' on the East last thing that he heard six shots
He ain't getting no love from the cops, nobody got caught
Real talk when I heard who it was, heart damn near stopped
Somebody done killed my brother, now I gotta get back
Let 'em know cause a n_gga gotta feel that!
Sitting shotgun with the shot gun
When you hear the shots come, n_gga don't run!
Already bad, it can only get worse
Hand full of steel cause the sh_t still hurts
Cut so deep when they put him in the hearse
Never saw 25, had to put him in the dirt.

[Hook:]
No one told me life would be this way!
I swear 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
When you from downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these n_ggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em

[Verse 3:]
Once upon a time down town in a nine
What it don't mind crime doing 2 2 stood 5, 5
Big money on his mind, clothes and riko 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 pac, juice real n_ggas don't die!
B_tch, 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' wacks they'll be doing this sh_t 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 head watch how you aim that
Price on your head and we gonna take that
It's about to go down, you ain't about this then you better go now
Sun going down, keep it going down!
Everybody law down ski mask down!
All you gonna see is my eyes and my frown
Last thing you hear is my gun going pow
It happens every day while I'm away
This ain't nothing new you grew up downtown.

[Hook:]
People dying every day, that ain't nothing new
When you from downtown, downtown!
I'm just trying to make a way,
I won't let these n_ggas take me downtown, downtown!
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
Riding on these n_ggas, I'll be riding, I'll be riding on 'em
