Ab-Soul Lyrics


Back when I first grabbed that pen
I told myself that I was gonna win
And I ain’t no win, but it was go in
Dub happening I want in
So you can take your top 5 list
Dead or alive, and put me after m
I’m a fucking genius, gripping my fucking penis
Living this life, you can’t tell me nothing
Still I really got no money, fucking right
I’m all about that wealth, about that wealth
This ain’t no motion picture
I’ll tell you how that feel, how that feel
Even when the odds’ against you
They wanna see me wear polo draws, put 2 chains on
And that ain’t wrong but that ain’t me
I go too damn hard on … and jury
To stand out, black … nigga with his hair wild
Too damn proud, but killing it since …
Oh boy, oh boy, I’m the man now
Ttty … put the money in my hand, they should freak
It’s been this quick sand, I won’t sink
Put the pistol in my hand and I won’t think
Blow, blow, rest in peace, you just made room for the next to be
I never been afraid to say what I wanna say, when I wanna say it
Ok, then
Furthermore we do this for y’all
Rap stressing but it pays great
That is until you loose a pill,
On your release date, get …
Stay safe, hold your head, I got 2 15 and a loaf of bread
Feed the people, food for thought
Cause we are equal, who would’ve though?

They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light

I used to wanna rap like jay z
Now I feel like I’m run laps around jay z
Now same scene… nasty…
My niggas say my new shit past due
I pay dudes, even got that shit tattooed
High power…
I know you know we need a few …too
The brand new niggas with an attitude
Popping compton or…
I might even sell my shit for 10 bucks too
Too I’ll when I chop these words
True I’ll when I shot the world
I know life’s a bitch, when you know life’s a bitch and that’s not your girl
Cold shit, I’m hot though, like Colgate…
This is a shifting paradigm, I remember when I couldn’t spare a dime
Now I step in with a pair of dames
All peace, y’all know me, flow like water, admiral …
…forever to breathe
And as we proceed, to follow these dreams, I ain’t loosing no sleep
No, no, … it’s no no if it’s no dope
So high but I’m so low, 2 cups and I sip slow
Taking my time, we don’t just shine, we illuminate the whole show

They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light

Time in time I drop line for line
But only time will tell, if I ever go…
And cop 39 … see the truth is
They wanna know how close me Dre and Snoop is
…expectations’ critics hating shit,
I just put moms on vacation bitch
And you never know my new location, is across nations
… I am ruler, I am highness… I am the shit…
Black on black crime, present the shooter
Racks on racks, I go rap on tracks…so please don’t ask me
About no pressure, bitch with a grip on my finger tip
I can hold this coast together

They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
They wanna share my light, they wanna share my light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light
You can have all my shine, I give you the light.

I know this song and Ab-Soul long before GTA V was released but I don't see why some people are mad about other people only discovering him from GTA V...Look guys, that's why those artists get featured in such games, they want to be heard. If you're a true Ab-Soul fan you should be happy that people started to recognize him, no matter how they did it. Thank you Rockstar. :)

What's crazy is I didn't find this song on GTA 5. I didn't learn about Ab-Soul til like 2013. In les than 2 years he became my favorite rapper once I discovered his whole catalog.
Dude has the perfect blend of passion & skill. I wish he was more present but appreciate his exclusivity.

Dawg this song helped keep me sane back when I was homeless in 2012 , now I make over $300k a year in the car business. Never had family, but I had music and this song.
