Lyrics

What Cha Gon Do

Written By: Andre Bell

VERSE ONE

Was out last night chillin with my people

Doing my thang, holding up my sign you
We're having a good time,My lungs are feelin fine
We rollin wit some dimes and one's gon be mine
We're headed to the grill,gonna get our eat on
I'm feelin like some shrimp
Wanna taste a drink though
It's quarter after nine
We still killing time
The club is open now
Let's go and do the town

CHORUS
So let's just make a move
What are we gonna do
I'm trying to chill too
But we don't know what to do

VERSE TWO
Now I'm waitin,comtemplatin,debatin
Well if I leave now, willI be able to make it
I start to fill the drink sinkin in
Let me rethink and restart again
Cause when you ridin the streets
Your vision get blurry and you feel your heart beat
Then you in the hot seat, the cops pull you over
Now you feelin the heat
But I just wanna enjoy myself
But I gotta get home, I gotta be up in the morn-ing
See who can I take
A pretty young thang for when I awake
And good thing no fights,no time for the drama
So go head dislike

CHORUS
So let's just make a move
What are we gonna do
I'm trying to chill too
But we don't know what to do

Ghetto Superstar

Written By: Andre Bell, John Bowman

RAP

Stink to da dink
With the poisonous ink
Voice of mink
Flow like a porcelin sink
Off the brink
Fuck what you thought or you think
You caught in a link,rap made you order a drink
Back on the block, still crack heads wit a rock
The rap that I rock,still crack heads on the block
Cold official my rap flow hold a pistol
My tone will diss you
Todd we done sold an issue
Keep it hot like all the fries,keep rolling like all the tires
Stay connected like all the wires
Low key just ballin by
Wit a phat red bone, tall and fly
I'm gon ball till I fall and die
But I'm tryna survive
You can't have the pussy less you staying alive

CHORUS

I don't care who or what you are
Just know I'm a ghetto superstar
And don't you even try and regulate
Cause you know you get put right in your place
It's a movement and it's for a cause
Rebel music, don't respect the laws
Cause you know we're dying to live
Get whip,mansions, and happiness

VERSE ONE

Itls where I'm from
Here I come now
How I lay it down
So please don't test me
It's where I fought
How I brought my game
Despite all the rain
The parade wasn't over
You know I breach to seek closure
That's what they told you
Well let me tell you my story
I had to brush if off my shoulder
All the exposure
Had my mind in a zone

CHORUS
I don't care who or what you are
Just know I'm a ghetto superstar
And don't you even try and regulate
Cause you know you get put right in your place
It's a movement and it's for a cause
Rebel music, don't respect the laws
Cause you know we're dying to live
Get whip,mansions, and happiness

VERSE TWO

This verse is for my street niggas
Who be coppin figures
Trying to make a come up
And to my ladies in the struggle
That dodge and hustle
All alone by their self
See the goal is to seek wealth
Not material,but emotional and mental
Cause it's B.S. that I go through
Trying to make these move
But I still gotta press on

BRIDGE

Everyday is a constant struggle
Gotta live life to the fullest
Please no trouble
It's only one me
Not running around wit no doubles
Don't got a wifey and not trying to be a couple
But keep it righteous,cause I know I'm not perfect
And at the same time, these mistakes all are worthless
So brace yourself cause we all have a purpose
Putting it down letting loose all these curtains

CHORUSI don't care who or what you are
Just know I'm a ghetto superstar
And don't you even try and regulate
Cause you know you get put right in your place
It's a movement and it's for a cause
Rebel music, don't respect the laws
Cause you know we're dying to live
Get whip,mansions, and happiness
