All in a Day's Work - Dr. Dre feat Anderson .Paak & Marsha Ambrosius

[Jimmy Iovine:]
Fear, fear's a powerful thing. I mean it's got a lot of firepower. If you can figure out a way to wrestle that fear to push you from behind rather than to stand in front of you, that's very powerful. I always felt that I had to work harder than the next guy, just to do as well as the next guy. And to do better than the next guy, I had to just kill. And you know, to a certain extent, that's still with me in how I work, you know, I just... go in

[Anderson .Paak:]
Sittin' 'bout a hundred stories up, like what the f_ck?
And I'm just lookin' at it all
I'll be right here in Los Angeles
Lookin' like a villain layin' low
Nothin' I can do but pack it all up
Goin' up, but sh_t, I feel the love
Spotlight on me and I'm feelin' so rare tonight
Actin' a fool and feelin' alive
I'm f_ckin' flawless like I live in a vault
Only type of livin' I know

[Anderson .Paak & Dr. Dre:]
See if it was you you would've killed yourself by now
It takes a special kind of mothaf_cka to live like this
And they ask me how I do it
Mothaf_cka just take a look around
Best believe I'm in the buildin' I hear you mothaf_ckas talkin' and all that but uh
No, no don't mention me at all
Yeah comin' live and direct
And I know you feelin' some type of way about it, but uh
Watch your mouth, I dare your ass to say somethin'
I thought it was all good
But now you mothaf_ckas crossed the line
Kinda pissin' me off
All the fans and all the fame, and though I gave everything to this game
They still complain
Now what the f_ck do y'all expect me to do?
There's so much f_ckin' pressure
There's all this pressure
And it's all in a day's work

[Marsha Ambrosius:]
Work, hard
Workin' so hard
24/7, 3-6-5
365, hard work
It's all in a day's work

[Dr. Dre & Anderson .Paak:]
My whole life all I ever thought about was grindin'
Even though my surroundings only showed me crime and violence
That was back when a rapper needed guns way more than a stylus
And that was back when I felt like rappers was true mothaf_ckin' riders
Or even back in the day when I was a f_ckin' youngster
Sh_t I was still sayin', "F_ck the police"
Born and raised in the belly of the beast
I had a dream that we was at peace
But I was so wrong.. so wrong
Y'all too wrapped up in the bullsh_t and bias
Now reality TV talks about pulpits and choirs
Some of these hoes give less than a f_ck when they runnin' their life story by us
It's the worst when I'm in a hotel, like a Hilton sick and tired
Some of these housewives way too f_ckin' desperate
These b_tches thinkin' fame first
I can't knock the hustle, it's all in a day's work
But that's that sh_t with potential to make the game worse
Sh_t it's just somethin' about that Hollywood curse
They just thirst

[Anderson .Paak:]
Hard times
I'm on my grind, f_ck the part-time
Stay ready for war, I'm on the front line
I'm gettin' the feelin' like it's all mine
It's becoming the only feeling I know
Only type of livin' I know
Only type of livin' I know
Only type of livin' I know
Only type of livin' I know

Gonna go to work
We gotta work
We gotta work
Let's get back to work
On the grind, back to work

[Dr. Dre:]
Let's work
Rich as f_ck, but, guess what, I'm back to work
Overseas, back home, no time to sleep, I'm back to work
So many people that I love, they want my time but I got to work
Some of my friends don't understand I got to work
Always talkin' 'bout bustin' the club but I'm like, "F_ck that I gotta work"
If you really wanna do it like this, sh_t you better get back to work
Back to work
Right back to work
Gotta get back to work
Sh_t, right back to work
