Jay Rock - Diary Of A Broke Nigga Lyrics




[Jay Rock]
Look inside the eyes of a broke nigga, see the stress on his face
Look at his heart, ain't no love in the place
What's on his mind? Murder, money and mayhem
If he don't see a dollar, somebody visiting Satan
He grabbed his gat from under the mattress, he cocked it back
Then grabbed his gloves and a mask, then threw on his hat
Looked in the mirror and said, times is hard
So hard that he got gray hair on his balls, pause
In the ghetto, you destined to fall
That's why it's a must that we ball
That's why he on the corner lurking, waiting for a motherfucker to slip
Soon as he see the chance, he taking a risk
What should you do when this nigga snatch you out of your whip
empty out your pockets, then snatch what's on your neck and your wrist?
Nothing, cause when the gat in your mouth, so speechless
Any false move, then your brain's on the cement
It gets gutter when niggas starving
Niggas will run inside your house, kill you on target, heartless
This is way beyond a cold thriller
This the diary of a broke nigga

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar (Giddy)]
"Pump, pump" Everybody lay down on the ground
Give me whatever you got right now
"Pump, pump" Everybody lay down on the floor
Give me whatever you got, plus more
(When times is hard, and I'm praying for change
My funds is low, when I need some change, I'ma...)
"Pump, pump" Make sure you hide your goods when I come mister
You're dealing with the diary of a broke nigga

[Jay Rock]
It's been a whole month, he still ain't seen no paper
Nigga losing weight every time that he wake up
Plus, he tired of asking niggas for favors
cause when they get mad, they throw it back in his face
That's foul, flagrant, this nigga been slaving
in the spot all week, still ain't seen no paper
That's fucked up, they say don't bite the hand that feeds you
But if that hand don't feed you, where would that leave you?
Now that the stress come, can't turn back the hands of time
Got him thinking back on what he should have done
First thing on his mind now, get a gun
Shit, you gotta eat, and you got a son
and a daughter, now that's two mouths to feed
And that money seem far, like miles to reach
But it's right there, but his brain cloudy
Life on the wrong road, can't reroute it
Caught that nigga, then showed him what that heater do
If you don't feed your wolves, your wolves eat you
This is way beyond a cold thriller
This the diary of a broke nigga

[Chorus]

  43. Simple Complexity

    i wonder what ab soul was doing during this video.

  44. Thijs van Abs

    Now first of all, i don;t know a lot of Jay Rock yet, but this is fire. I also really dig Hood gon' love it. That said..i heard a few more recent songs and what happened to this style man? I am not hearing there what i am hearing here in this track. It misses something. It's still worlds apart from trash like Young Thug, aka one of the idiots what's wrong with hiphop nowadays, but even great rappers nowadays seem to want to experiment with odd production, odd voices. What is up with the first part of Easy Bake? I want hard beats, dope ass lyrics and a flow.

    Raj Singh

    +Thijs van Abs Musicians evolve man. I used to wish artists would go back to their roots but if you lived the life they live you would grow too. Think about where Jay rock came from you know what i mean? He used to be slinging rock in the projects.. now hes a multi millionaire. He doesnt have the same struggles, and hes not the same jay rock, but he also is... you feel me cuz?

    Thijs van Abs

    I definitely see your point, it's just that I am not down with this new experimental sound. I don't mind them trying new things, but man is his voice simply downright annoying on his new CD at times. A shame really. They don't necessarily have to rap about the hard life all the time, but musically wise I am not feeling a whole lot of shit lately. Same as Game's new single with Skrillex. Just terrible and makes me long for those hard hitting beats and dope ass sound.

    Raj Singh

    Damn, Im sorry you feel that way. I personally love his new work but I can see what you mean. Have you ever listened to the flatbush zombies? They keep it real and since they have 3 voices every song has unique flow

    Thijs van Abs

    +Raj Singh Never even heard of them but I will go check them out.

    AttendancePeak

    so what you think?

  45. Alex Zukosvky

    The beat. The hook. The bars. THE FIRE.

  46. ttjones35

    remind of old school ransom jerzey w0o0oaw

  47. William Juan Diego

    "so stress grey hair on his balls" that shit crack me up 😃

    HOLLOW HILL

    I got grey hair on my balls

  48. jpreme0

    fuckin' wit dis ...word

  49. Soyez Gentil

    This Is so much better than 2chainz or tyga

    Matt Coffey

    Tyga is straight garbage.

    Jim Lahey

    You'd want to play this at a party? Different moods for different music bro

    sean huesman

    +Jim Lahey hell yeah lol is the few ppl that like hip hop foreal will respect

    Scimpix Karuzo

    @Jim Lahey maybe not this track. but parental advisory for example is perfect for a party

  50. Cesar Escamilla

    Jay rock is so dope.

    Ryan Sikorski

    yoooo... that remix of "Tie My Hands" on Kendrick's C4 mixtape called "Take off your pants" hahahahahaaha Jay Rock is a fucking SAVAGE. I love kendrick, and a lot of my favorite songs are ft. Jay Rock or vice verse.

  51. Ebony Whitley

    Damnn schoolboy Q was easy on eyes back in the day... Jayrock is beast underrated rappers don't u know he is only who put kenderick Lamar on the map... I'm fucks with TDE all the day

  52. Ricardo Mendoza

    "They say don't bite the hand that feed you but if that hand don't feed you where does that leave you?" 🔥🔥🔥

  53. Mobious 1

  68. ThugLifeModafocah

    by the way, Jay Rock is a beast...

  69. ThugLifeModafocah

    before Jay Rock launch this song, some rappers in brazil did a song with this beat. And the lyrics is fucking good. The name of the group is "Facção Central" and the name of the song is "Desculpa mãe", means "Sorry Mom"... The history is very deep... just my 2 cents to, maybe, open the vision and make a wide horizon in some minds... hehehe.

    Desiree Mccall

    it nice i hope they know the meaning
