Mama Told Me Lyrics

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga

Sorry hip hop, it took me so long to get on
But so long that I'm on it, it's on
I'm rappin' for the scholars and the hustla's, meanwhile
Showin' mama I ain't dropped out for nothin'

I swear these dolla's gon' add up
And I ain't shallow, material things suppress bad luck
That's why I shine like I does, it's pain in my eyes
But these east saints blind you to look

Binded between, carryin' the flag for an area that drag
Whoever tried to gravitate
G told me it's a city full of crimes
I'm feelin' like a platter at Philip's when I rap

As much as I wanted to be minuscule the fact is
They'd only be happy with a minstrel actor
Sorry Mr. Charlie won't chap dance
And fuck the radio for tellin' me to snap jam

I'm just expectin' the spectator's respect here
My net is from jet setters to cab fares
Hip hop's unbalances got out of hand
Ain't have to see saw, I'm already scared

I been called the
And I D.C.'d this whole fuckin' genre
And I ain't in it for them O's or them commas
But more or less the hope for dope niggas to prosper

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga

The future is now, I lead on record's dedication
For makin' better music is now
Dope niggas locked out, 4 year rap drought
It's rainin' now, somehow the fugitive's out

I would invest in a poncho
'Cause I ain't finna punch out like Glass Joe, naw
I'm a go until my arm's sore, fuck it
I go until my 40 millionth encore

Hip hop's dead yeah that's what Nas said to me
I guess that's hip hop heads on salary
We've had the tables on them record labels
Who's next to release? We guillotine them

Niggas braggin' but everybody stagnant
Everybody broke except the nigga on the track, shit
And mama why you throw away my drums?
A hundred for a deal, they made a hundred on the song

Nigga, I'm a hundred miles far, I'm feelin' Chris Childs
You lookin' like Kobe Bryant y'all
It's lonely at the top so I waited but ain't nobody take it
Now I'm playin' solitaire patient

Crucifix pieces, necklace with Jesus
See me as blasphemous for I don't need them
God give me strength, Allah give me patience
I am only a man and I don't know what to think

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga

Mama told me there'd be days like this
But I ain't never ever think there'd be a day like this, naw
Not now, not ever and now until forever
You will never need another, nigga
