Z
Jay Lyrics


R is for residuals I’ll stack in this business
And the I is for impeccable with music and bitches
The two Zs is don’t sleep cus if you blink you could miss it
Nigga O is overlooked until I started the spitting
Yeah
R is for residuals I’ll stack in this business
And the I is for impeccable with music and bitches
The two Zs is don’t sleep cus if you blink you could miss it
Nigga O is overlooked until I started the spitting
16 Bars for every nigga tryna battle with the man
Never back down from a challenge pen and pad up in my hand
Punchlines leave a nigga paralyzed and shitting in his pants
Tryna takeover the city and I’m sticking to the plan
Top 5 dead or live nigga who is fucking with me
Shots fired you survived reload the clip and squeeze it empty
Not surprised you really tried but I’m just mad you tried to get me
My guys really slide spin ya block inside a renty
I been playing singing round but it’s time to bring that rap back
Saying I can’t spit so damn I guess its time to clap back
Bars gon hit ya brain and leave it sitting where ya lap at
Gotta make a beat so where my hard drive and my Mac at
Was going through depression shit it had me losing focus
Now I’m back making the magic all these verses Hocus Pocus
I been tryna get this Power feeling like my name is Ghost and
I been staying off the gram ain’t really with all of the posting
I been tryna get this project started up for like a year or two
A couple mental breakdowns yeah I shedded a tear or two
But now I got some heat in the stash its time a share a few
All these tracks is sick shit nigga go get the Theraflu
R is for residuals I’ll stack in this business
And the I is for impeccable with music and bitches
The two Zs is don’t sleep cus if you blink you could miss it
Nigga O is overlooked until I started the spitting
Yeah
R is for residuals I’ll stack in this business
And the I is for impeccable with music and bitches
The two Zs is don’t sleep cus if you blink you could miss it
Nigga O is overlooked until I started the spitting

Lyrics

[Intro]
Take the bass line out
Uh-huh, Jigga
Uh-huh, uh-huh, uh-huh, yeah
Let it bump though

[Chorus]
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life!

[Verse 1]
From standing on the corners, bopping
To driving some of the hottest cars New York has ever seen
From dropping some of the hottest verses rap has ever heard
From the dope spot, with the smoke Glock
Fleeing the murder scene, you know me well
From nightmares of a lonely cell, my only hell
But since when y'all niggas know me to fail? Fuck naw
Where all my niggas with the rubber grips, bust shots
And if you with me, mama, rub on your tits, and what-not
I'm from the school of the hard knocks, you must not
Let outsiders violate our blocks and my plot
Let's stick up the world and split it 50/50, uh-huh
Let's take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh-huh
And sip the Cris' and get pissy-pissy
Flow infinitely like the memory of my nigga Biggie, baby!
You know it's hell when I come through
The life and times of Shawn Carter, nigga, Volume 2
Y'all niggas get ready!

[Chorus]
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life!

[Verse 2]
I flow for those 'dro'ed out
All my niggas locked down in the 10 by four, controlling the house
We live in hard knocks
We don't take over, we borrow blocks
Burn 'em down and you can have it back
Daddy, I'd rather that
I flow for chicks wishing, they ain't have to strip to pay tuition
I see your vision, mama
I put my money on the longshots
All my ballers that's born to clock
Know I'm a be on top whether I perform or not
I went from lukewarm to hot
Sleeping on futons and cots to King Size
Green machines, to green 5's
I've seen pies, let the thing between my eyes analyze life's ills
Then I put it down type Braille
I'm tight grill with the phony
Rappers, y'all might feel we homies
I'm like, "Still, y'all don't know me."
Shit, I'm tight grill when my situation ain't improving
I'm tryna murder everything moving– feel me?

[Chorus]
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life!
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life!

[Verse 3]
I don't know how to sleep, I gotta eat, stay on my toes
Got a lotta beef, so logically, I prey on my foes
Hustling is still inside of me, and as far as progress
You'd be hard-pressed to find another rapper hot as me
I gave you prophecy on my first joint, and y'all lamed out
Didn't really appreciate it till the second one came out
So I stretched the game out, etched your name out
Put Jigga on top and dropped albums non-stop for ya, nigga!

[Chorus]
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life for us
It's the hard knock life for us
Instead of treated, we get tricked
Instead of kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life
It's the hard knock life
It's the hard knock life

From standin' on the corners boppin'
To drivin' some of the hottest cars New York has ever seen
For droppin' some of the hottest verses rap has ever heard
From the dope spot, with the smoke Glock
Fleein' the murder scene, you know me well
From nightmares of a lonely cell, my only hell
But since when y'all niggaz know me to fail? Fuck naw
Where all my niggaz with the rubber grips, bust shots
And if you with me mom I rub on your tits, and what-not
I'm from the school of the hard knocks, we must not
Let outsiders violate our blocks, and my plot
Let's stick up the world and split it fifty/fifty, uh-huh
Let's take the dough and stay real jiggy, uh-huh
And sip the Cris' and get pissy-pissy
Flow infinitely like the memory of my nigga Biggie, baby!
You know it's hell when I come through
The life and times of Shawn Carter
Nigga Volume 2, y'all niggaz get ready

It's the hard knock life, for us
It's the hard knock life, for us!
Steada treated, we get tricked
Steada kisses, we get kicked

I flow for those 'dro'ed out, all my niggaz
Locked down in the ten by fo', controllin' the house
We live in hard knocks, we don't take over we borrow blocks
Burn em down and you can have it back daddy, I'd rather that
I flow for chicks wishin', they ain't have to strip to pay tuition
I see you vision mama, I put my money on the long shots
All my ballers that's born to clock
Now I'ma be on top whether I perform or not
I went from lukewarm to hot; sleepin' on futons and cots
To king size, green machines, the green fives
I've seen pies let the thing between my eyes analyze life's ills
Then I put it down type braile
I'm tight grill with the phony, rappers y'all might feel we homies
I'm like still, y'all don't know me, shit!
I'm tight grill when my situation ain't improving
I'm tryin to murder everything movin', feel me?!

It's the hard knock life, for us

Steada treated, we get tricked
Steada kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life, for us

Gotta a lot of beef, so logically, I prey on my foes

You'd be hard-pressed, to find another rapper hot as me
I gave you prophecy on my first joint, and y'all lamed out
Didn't really appreciate it, til the second one came out
So I stretched the game out, X'ed your name out
Put Jigga on top, and drop albums non-stop for ya, nigguh!

It's the hard knock life, for us
It's the hard knock life, for us!
Steada treated, we get tricked
Steada kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life, for us
It's the hard knock life, for us!
Steada treated, we get tricked
Steada kisses, we get kicked
It's the hard knock life!
It's the hard knock life!
It's the hard knock life!
