Bada$$, Joey - Brooklyn's Own Lyrics




[Intro:]
Badmon representing
Peace to the world
Peace to the earth
Check it out

[Verse 1:]
I said, shit ain't been the same since we made Killuminati
Hex across my chest see it written across my body
Bury me in gold 47 karat casket
Resurrect my soul come back as your favorite rapper
What if I told you there was nothing to be scared of
Nothing but yourself and all the lies they shared ya
Look at all the lives that we lost cause we fear love
To the unknown and Biggie's dream getting teared up
Lack of reverence for this sacred land we stand on
It's incoherent to the very things we planned
Can't understand it if you never expand your
Indoctrinated minds, playing possum to the times
Thanking God I'm still alive
Every time I open my eyes in fact I lie
But lord knows I try
Tell me how we gon survive in America
It's a mass terror in everything I'm telling ya
Yo, its a genocide going on outside
Homicide, suicide, choose a side
You decide who stays alive, who gets crucified
Who deserve to die, hope its never mine
Got my mama horrified every time I go outside
I can feel her heart beat when I'm in these dark streets
Yeah man I'm from Marcy, so the fact I made it here
Still in fact we haunting, cause I can make it anywhere
And nigga I'm

[Chorus:]
Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's own
My baby
Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's own
That's right I'm Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's own
My baby
Said I'm Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's, Brooklyn's own
To the world

[Verse 2:]
Yo had ties to troops in Bed Stuy
Following, my heart stopped at the red light
Lexus the ride then we blasting out of sight
Like satellite, know a nigga stay with the dynamite
It's plain in Brooklyn, don't get your chain took when you're not looking
Ain't nothing worst than a Flatbush man with a gun in his hand
Ready to die for rubber band filled with a couple grand
How it feel
Ready to kill when you still got your hands on the wheel
Like I said the flow so I'll, like I'm writing wills
When the skills get spilled
So tell me what you think you better not blink
But to sink slow to your death, best to watch your step
I got em on the edge let me tell em what I rep
It's the Brooklyn set and I don't see no threats
I don't see no threats nigga
It's the best nigga, you guessed nigga
Ya ya, ya ya
I said I tell em right here I'm

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Big up everybody out in Flatbush
Big up everybody out in Brownsville
Big up everybody out in Bed Stuy
Big up everybody in the ground still
Big up everybody in the Marcy
Big up everybody all my people out in Coney
Big up everybody out in East New York
Big up all my Brooklyn people all across

[Chorus]

    I'm so nervous for AABA whenever that's gone drop, after hearing devastated and CJ flys new single, can see the way PE are going. Better not be this trap shit that they're slowly going into

    Anthony Konstantinou

    dude devastated is awesome no matter how much of a 1999 dude you are

    #LONGLIVESTEELO

    Anthony Konstantinou all opinions bro, I'm just a big fan of the boom bap feel like what the underground pros are doing

    Anthony Konstantinou

    my playlists are all boom bap strictly. eg my phone has 97 tracks and they are all boom bap from 80s,90s and then there is this guy who makes up 12 of those tracks .and devastated is also included. its not boom bap but he is still spitting bars and the beat is still dope

    Andrew Lee

    Dude it's their music ur opinion is irrelevant not to come off harsh or anything. experimentation and switching up styles is imperative for every artist or they become stale.

  67. Jasiahpowers

    what song did he sample the "Brooklyn's own " singing part from its a 'll cool j song if you know it please tell me

  89. Leoven

    Why does this have so little views? I absolutely love it and listen to it a lot. So damn smooth. Not one of Joey's most lyrical but probably in his top 10 smoothest tracks fr.

    Captain Goku

    Righteous minds is his smoothest and lyrical song ever

    Leoven

    Marcus Mariota Hardknock is his most lyrical fym

  90. Johnny Lucas

    Off the rhekord

  91. TheJackmalone

    trop chaud
