Mistah F.a.b. – The Hope Lyrics


This, this, this, this what the bottom is
I've been down so long, getting down ain't an option
But, if you believe it, then you can achieve
And I ain't lying my niggas, shit, look at me! [Hook]
I bring heaven to the hood, people say that I'm the hope
For all my niggas trapped in narcotics or selling dope
For all them girls lost, turned out walking this road
For all my real niggas on probation and parole! [Verse 2]
Mayor of the city, I don't need no election
Good through the hood comes slide through the section
Tell the truth in a song, I charade my confession
Momma dying was a curse, I thought his birth was a blessing
City going crazy, that's why I'm giving back
Friend lying every time, that's where I'll be living at
Truth be told, I'm a modern day…
Organize another.. Go to school someday, the streets is overrated! Niggas say I'm hitting… and they're saying that they're mobbing
Said they run the city, but they ain't even jogging
City on mind, nigga that's a…
If you niggas getting money, why you ain't giving back? This, this, this, this what the bottom is
I've been down so long, getting down ain't an option
But, if you believe it, then you can achieve
And I ain't lying my niggas, shit, look at me! If you're really from the streets
You ain't … find that
I remember being young, watching moms buying crap
Riding by Saint Pablo, see my sister on the tray
Too embittered just to speak, can't drive in the light
I can't still see my daddy, nine after…
Or my… the only thing they kept from come
Rather chase the green, like a leprechaun
Streets coming… I keep the weapon on! [Outro]
Yeah, see one thing about these niggas, man
They don't tell you the good things about the streets
But ain't nobody gonna tell you about them
A hundred years in this, man
The best friends snitching
The going to your homie funerals
Your best killing your best friend
You telling your partner momma is gonna be alright
And she looking at you like you didn't lost your mind! Ain't nothing wrong about having your business, lil bro! [Verse 1]
Every day getting calls from the pen like:
Shoot me fifty, bro! But I'm still standing here with a smile, smile
..saying why, why? [Hook]
I bring heaven to the hood, people say that I'm the hope
For all my niggas trapped in narcotics or selling dope
For all them girls lost, turned out walking this road
For all my real niggas on probation and parole! Face friends transform and they're decepticons
Nigga finding working, dirty cons, see you stepping on it! You already know what's going on, man
It's down the hope, man
Only niggas putting positivity back in the community, man
It ain't nothing wrong with being square man
They live long and young…
Handle your business! They'll tell you about that! cause the guy…
[Hook]
I bring heaven to the hood, people say that I'm the hope
For all my niggas trapped in narcotics or selling dope
For all them girls lost, turned out walking this road
For all my real niggas on probation and parole! Man, anything helps, we ain't doing twenty five
And everybody that you call it ain't better than your life
Folks locked up, better show your niggas love
You don't know how it's like getting letters wrote in blood
The day before I hit the road, told Milly, "be safe!"
We got on the road, Milly got shot with a K! Shoot me thous, shoot me ten! Since my last album, man, I lost hell of folks
Some to the pen, some got smoked
When I see my mom and dad, I spit the homicide
..it made you go blind! 69 shots in his momma face, the type of shit a nigga can't face
Type of text messages a nigga can't take
I'm a real ass nigga, type these niggas can't fake! [Intro]
It's for the city man! This, this, this, this what the bottom is
I've been down so long, getting down ain't an option
But, if you believe it, then you can achieve
And I ain't lying my niggas, shit, look at me!
