Meek Mill – Left Hollywood Lyrics

(Intro)
I had to get out hollywood
Get back to the trenches, they said they need me
Little fish

(Verse 1)
I used to cop my little reggie tryna feed myself
My cousin had that work but I didn’t need no help
Man I was so f**ked up I couldn’t believe myself
That’s why I be at the jeweler tryna freeze myself
Cause my heart so cold, we ain’t got no goals
All these young ni**as killing like they ain’t got no souls
Talking grandma’s keys, before I cop my rolls
It was all so sweet until…told
Really hurt my heart, ripped my feelings apart
Out in Philly it’s dark, we was really so scarred
But acting silly so hard but we just wanted some love
Mama working, daddy dead I just wanted a hug
Why you think we spilling spade when we go to the club
All my homies think I smoke, we just rolling it up
I’m stressed out, ni**as got…feel left out
So I went to chasing them pennies I went soft, f**k

(Chorus)
I went from going to school, to towing them tools and making a move
Said I would win, they said I would lose s**t
We’re so confused, hope I don’t make the news, oh lord
We was breaking the rules, trapping to get some food
Risking freedom for shoes
Knowing that I don’t need em, Im spending money on jewels
Jeweler like getting food, they told us that this was cool

(Verse 2)
Caught my first case, it was me vs the state
I just wanted some steak and some food on my plate
Came up from shit I’m like how can you hate
I’m just tryna be great, I survived with the snakes
Look what they did to Lil Kodak and Gates
I can’t lose faith, I just want shine like the stars and my wraith
We go to war in fatigues like it’s bape
I don’t feel safe, can’t sleep without it
Master with them P’s yeah boy I’m bout it bout it
Brought me to my knees back when everybody doubted
Can’t let my youngins see me fold, I’m too solid
If I stand on it, I’ma stand on it
Put some bags on the scale, put some grams on it
This the only s**t I knew I seen my man done it
Tryna be like ni**as who were never there for us
We ain’t have no guidance

(Chorus)
I went from going to school, to towing them tools and making a move
Said I would win, the said I would lose s**t
We’re so confused, hope I don’t make the news, oh lord
We was breaking the rules, trapping to get some food
Risking freedom for jewels
Knowing that I don’t need em Im be spending money on jewels
Jeweler like getting food, they told us that this was cool

(Verse 3)
Copping scooby ni**as out the radar
Ni**as putting ni**as in the graveyard
Jobs told us beat it like an A&R
So we play with heart, f**k it we gon play it raw
Cut the lights, told my momma they ain’t staying on
They killed my daddy and it turned me to a man, dog
We play with rugers, play with Glocks, we ain’t playin ball
S**t we tryna stay alive it’s a standoff
My life for your life
Go to war like we got like four lives
Talking before like, all this lil rap shit
Where I’m from if when you turn eighteen then that’s more life
For real ni**a

(Interlude)
When you have no voice
Ain’t nobody hear us, so we ain’t have no choice

(Chorus)
I went from going to school, to towing them tools and making a move
Said I would win, said I would lose s**t
We’re so confused, hope I don’t make the news, oh lord
We was breaking the rules, trapping to get some food
Risking freedom for jewels
Knowing that all Ima be spending money on jewels
Jeweler like getting food, they told us that this was cool
