  • Apollo Brown & Skyzoo – A Couple Dollars (feat. Joell Ortiz) letras

    [Intro: Skyzoo]
    We just wanted to live
    They told us that countin’ up somethin’
    Seems the only way you can live
    Swear to God we just wanted to live
    They told us that countin’ up somethin’
    Seems the only way you can live

    [Verse 1: Skyzoo]
    In love with a mattress that was somewhat outta place
    Where due to old habits it can double as a Chase
    Talkin’ major key, let it cut you out a case
    And tryna run the city ’til it run you outta state
    Told us all of this is straight, and it’s worth what you wait on
    Starin’ at the exit like “yo I ain’t tryna stay long”
    Kitchen table decorator situate a plate on
    Jeśus heavy is the head the crown lay on
    But all of this straight
    Runnin’ outta state is what you play for and stay for
    To turn to what you leave for, get your 16 on
    Like talkin’ mic check, throw the beat on
    Or talkin’ ’bout a key but being 20 OZ short
    16 ain’t enough, Andre features
    As quick as you can be on, you’ll be gone
    Waiting on a detour, couple U-turns to where you belong
    At best you can get your sight see on

    [Hook: Skyzoo]
    Just need a couple dollars
    A couple dollars baby
    Bet you I can plug ’em
    Til the wallet dropping babies
    Just need a couple dollars
    A couple dollars baby
    Told if I can get ’em
    All of them will save me
    Saved in a drop top BM
    Right side, DM
    All praise due up
    Tell him when I see him
    Started with a couple dollars baby
    Was told if I can get ’em
    All of them will save me
    It’s off a couple dollars

    [Verse 2: Skyzoo]
    And it sounds like beautiful like the truth
    Like “she bad but even more beautiful in the coupe”
    And seeing that was seeing all that I would need to pursue
    The e-class that was used to corner me off the stoop
    Was as clean as the book that your hand on
    When you prayed that we stayed away from them anthems
    Fuck is left for us except for us to go stand on
    A box with a rope and a bottle of Spade
    Carpe diem, carpe diem, make it pop it for the day
    I threw money to jeweler, sneaker box full of change
    Know me, I’m no better I’m about it the same
    Cause on a box with a rope is how we got in this frame
    Now flick it up, one time for ’em, one time for ’em
    Know it’s lit if they in here with the 9 on ’em
    One time for em, one time for em
    And the parades lining up along the side for ’em

    [Verse 3: Joell Ortiz]
    As a youngin’, had a lot on my plate
    I ain’t finna complain, just had a lot on my plate
    Razors, 12 12 skinnies and 58s
    I cooked a 6 deuce and came back with 58
    I ain’t stressin’, I ain’t stretch it, I just cheffed it in the butter
    Orville Redenbacher, had it poppin’, word to mother
    Swervin’ under covers, had it local, had it OT
    Whippin’ up P-O-T tryna get to the T-O-P
    Get in and get out, that’s always the plan
    But all of them bands to a kid in the project who had nothin’ so damned
    Hard to let go from starvin’ stomach, hollow with the echo
    To the hardest Marc Ecko extra large retro
    MJs before they dropped, but a lot started to drop
    Stick up kids got the drop, my sneaker box dropped
    Dropped crack, switched to diesel when some fiends dropped
    Feds eavesdroppin” on my drop, got ’em street blocked
    They dropped by my man’s spot so now he locked
    I drop to both knees prayin’ dimes don’t get dropped
    Dropped it all, be the bird locked in the coupe
    Or take your talent more serious and lock in that booth
    I chose the latter, and thank God for showin’ Joe the ladder
    Helped me climb through these rhymes
    Who said I would never matter?
    Look at me, such a hard act to follow
    Lookin’ forward to tomorrow, you’ll never hear me holler
