Lyrics

Bands

Written By: Jokaa Deleon

Chorus
I've been countin' up them bands
Im paper cuttin up my hands
It was all in the plan
I thought I told you Im the man
Verse
I come from the grittiest city
most of these niggas fishy
when the jury deliver da verdict
niggas turn into Mickey
situation turnin sticky
suited up in dat Dickie
behind them walls
not knowin these streets gettin tricky
I grew up on pac soulja slim and 50
I watched em kill my pops
everyday dat sight wit me
on block duckin cops
niggas gettin hit like Ricky
my moms my daughter n my girl
the only things pretty
I had to get it off the street
cause nobody was hirin
n when I got the 9 to 5
my pay wasn't high enuff
lookin at my weeks pay
I see dat inna day
moms said its prolly best
baby boy need to pray
close to year later
I'm sittin on 100 bands
Neva had this kinda money
back then I didn't understand
fell off went broke
my decisions fuckin up the plans
sat back peeped it out
learned how to be a fuckin man
