1mike – lawrence street lyrics

Loading...

michael darling, we have been driving for rather long
do you have a destination in mind?
sh-t i mean, i’m trying to go anywhere but home
hmm, how about that street you’ve mentioned many times before

still up from last night, and still twisted off the sipping
scientifik on my stereo, i listen as i’m sitting
laid up in the backseat, thinking of life
broad daylight on broadway, we hit the next right turn
swerve as i peep the first sight, to my left is a church
blessing or curse in the ghetto since birth
perspective that depends on who reflect upon the lessons learned
find the beauty in struggle, that could get you through your worst days
back to third grade what my mind replays
first time i was wide-eyed for fashion in 98
hilfiger jeans and starter jackets
always askin for new jordan’s we could not afford, cus shorties was ignorin’
reminiscing as i see the children playing in the park
say it with your heart, cause overthinking is playing with your thoughts
it make ya mind speed up, but slow down son
ain’t that the same liquor store that never used to id us?
sure enough he remembered cause we wasn’t of age
that same block where past dark you had to tuck in ya chains
howard park, the court packed waiting to jump in a game
im thinking back to lynn m-ss when i got jumped in a gang
and that was five vs. one, a long minute
minor scuffs, i held my own and kept on swinging
i think the quicker you mature, if as a kid you living poor
they even trapping out bodegas so they boarded up constanzas
it get dicey fast, a block ahead where some shiesty cat
robbed my big bro, pressed the gat right behind his back
spared cause he complied, it’s rare to take a ride….
down a single street and have so many memories arise
capitalize on the chances they ain’t willing to take
we stopped at pollo tipico for that dominican plate
the street life’s a gps to that usual road
destinations either prison or a funeral home
as we p-ss the farrah so my brother ruben you know
you worked there for years, now i’m here using your quote
said you was tired of putting suits on a corpse,that you knew from before
seen families that can’t recoup what was lost
d-mn…
its hard to see and all these stories still a part of me
let’s roll another l before we hit the end of lawrence street

still representing west lynn, they been down the rugged path
boston, known to walk the rugged path
lawrence, been around the rugged path
whole m-ssachusetts can you f-ck wit that
west lynn, they been down the rugged path
boston, known to walk the rugged path
lawrence, been around the rugged path
whole m-ssachusetts can you f-ck wit that, that

you feel me
what inspired this joint right here was actually one of favorite lines from scientifik
back when he said like, he said like ….
we represent the east coast cause i never hear enough of that sh-t
and i’ll be d-mned cause we the ones who got the phat sh-t
and i still feel that, you know
rest in peace you a legend forever
and in my mind, you live on every time i play your records

one
