J. COLE - Tears For ODB Lyrics

Yeah, straight up, hey
Tears for ODB, drug induced poetry
What's the use?
Strung out from that drug abuse
80s baby, so I know my pops was getting high
In the 90s, me and mama barely getting by
2000s I was concentrating more on getting fly
Getting bitches, getting rich to get the shit I couldn't buy
You know the story, you know my allegory
I was sent from Heaven with a set of horns,
They'd better warn y'all!
I'm here for more than just to kick some witty metaphors, dawg
This more of the type of shit you spit to set a war off
Cause niggas be poor, get money, they still don't know
Why the fuck they can't cop a house,
The system meant to lock us out
But I'm knocking down the door, strapped up with a four-four
Robin Hood, shit and yeah, I'm hood rich
That's good enough to stay in new kicks and a good...
Get good head from a good bitch,
I give two shits, I'mma tell you straight up:

Hook:
Hey straight up, straight up!
Ain't any chance I'mma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch
But I'm just tryna make it
Straight up, straight up, straight up!
Ain't any chance I'mma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch!
But I'm just tryna make it
Straight up!

Lord, have mercy on my soul!
What I've done and what I've seen
My life has tumbled into that which only you could intervene
I put my heart in senseless things
Money, bitches and street shit
Fascinated by beef, sad to say I won't be shit.
Grew up in this bitch without a pot to piss, no toilet
How ironic, I took a lot of shit,
Like a bottom bitch or a model chick,
High off coke, they locking sons up for less,
I don't care how y'all cope!
But yet I still peddle this dope and these pills
I'll never know how sitting comfy on that... seat feels
More than likely be on "most wanted" posters, we steal
Holding on to old dreams of being... be real
We the forgotten souls, bottom of the totem poles
Left for dead, some niggas fled,
People said they sold their souls
I just think they found a better way,
Lord knows I never pray
But sometimes I be wishing I could levitate,
I'll take it straight up!

Hook:
Hey straight up, straight up!
Ain't any chance I'mma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch
But I'm just tryna make it
Straight up, straight up, straight up!
Ain't any chance I'mma take it
Rather die before I fake it
They say life is what you make it, bitch!
But I'm just tryna make it
Straight up!

[Outro:]
Yeah, straight up!
My niggas' gotta learn something
It's 2012 nigga
And I still got a lot to say
You all know...
A nigga never know
Real!
