lyrics

Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 1: Keez
I was born to do something
Don’t tell me I can’t succeed
Momma said “do anything,
You just need to believe”
This is where the money come
No brain
Leave ‘em dumb
Backpack without school
Feed ‘em paper
Obey the rules
Don’t maintain with these Fool’s
Light it up
Ricky Flair
Just kids on the stairs
Can’t climb to my lair
Chemistry ain’t there
Robbery should be next
Fuck the game
Rough sex
No need for latex
Asking, who’s got next?
Put five on my stride
Bubble gum on the ride
Floss daily like I should
I’m a star in the hood
And you better treat me good
I’m a star in the hood
And you better treat me good

Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 2: A-Dub
I’m heavy in the streets
Like a block of concrete
Stuck up on this spot
Like there’s glue up on my feet
Million dollar dreaming
I can see it in my sleep
And I know them boys scheming
I can see ‘em when they creep
Give a fuck about me
But hear my momma’s grief
So I’m riding with heat
Ain’t talking police (shhh)
Pigs on the wire
Why?
Cuz the cable basic
Food on the table, dog
I could only taste it
Said I’d never see this money
Claim I needed Lasik
And let’s face it
If my brother Nate was white
He would’ve got a light sentence
They talking like 20 years
Ain’t a life sentence

Chorus: 2x (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow

Verse 3: Acee
I was so damn embarrassed
When I pushed the wheel barrel
And my fly shit was burrowed
And my iPad wasn’t powered
And the diesel wasn’t sour
And my money never showered
Money get the fame
And the fame get the power
Flashing like train smoke
Devil red Range Rove
Laser beam
Ozones
Double check
Six O’s
Acee’s for the latch keys
Who wanna grow up like me
Till they see that light beam
And our momma’s cry and scream
Only for the hopeless
Who stay focused on the grind
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life
I was born in the streets
‘Til the streets take my life

Chorus: Fade Out (Chopped and Screwed)
I was born in the streets
I got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
Got gravel in my marrow
