    "Go N' Get It"

    [Intro:]
    (I do it)
    Blood sweat tears
    Ace Hood
    (I do it)

    [Chorus:]
    Another day, another dollar
    Every twenty four I'm thinking money and the power
    Bills due, money running low
    Plus my cousin lost her mind and had an overdose
    Way too many problems got me stressed out
    What you do when you've got seven days to move out
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    I'm out here chasing greens
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    Need it by any mean

    [Verse 1:]
    Uh
    Money the root of evil guess I'm the devil then
    Bag full of dead faces like Afghanistan
    Hundred K or better, custom made barrettas
    How about that paper cheddar
    Hopping out that bemer leather
    Tell em get a load of this bezel
    Big face and the rocks all pebbles
    Don't grind and a ***** don't shine **** yall gotta get mine
    Big dough, big money on mind
    Running like to the sun up rise
    Money it never sleeps got bags up under my eyes
    Just know I gotta get it mama very sickly plus I'm expecting twins
    That's just what heaven sent me
    God fearing ***** this I who in the flesh
    'fore I let my people starve
    God bless my soul to rest

    [Chorus:]
    Another day, another dollar
    Every twenty four I'm thinking money and the power
    Bills due, money running low,
    Plus my cousin lost her mind and had an overdose
    With so many problems got me stressed up
    What you do when you've got seven days to move out
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    I'm out here chasing greens
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    Need it by any mean

    [Verse 2:]
    OK now riding around with that rocket
    ****** trying to steal my flow tho
    Thank you for the promo
    We the best still be that logo
    OK back upon my dough ****
    Sliding on in them two six
    Lights do, car note, baby fees plus rent
    ***** just no doubt no I'm out here
    Tote my.9 without fear
    Most you ****** *****, yeah I'm talking paps smear
    Lord guide me as my day go, trying get my mom off pay roll
    When I put her in that Benz-o,
    Gettin hard when them funds low
    I'm sick and tired of her crying, tired of nickel and dimes
    Look in her in her eyes but I know your son gonna rock
    'Cause I'm a God fearing ***** 'cause I am in the flesh
    Who won't let my family starve god bless my soul to rest

    [Chorus:]
    Another day, another dollar
    Every twenty four I'm thinking money and the power
    Bills due, money running low,
    Plus my cousin lost her mind and had an overdose
    With so many problems got me stressed up
    What you do when you've got seven days to move out
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    I'm out here chasing greens
    Go n get it, go n get it, go n get it
    Need it by any mean

    We talk alot about the predicament Africans have been placed in by European domination and racism, but very many of us still fail to actually empathize or sympathize with the affected.. What do you do when you got seven days to move out?... uneducated/undereducated.. streets filled with guns and drugs.. cops out for your blood.. folks walking around shell shocked and doped out.. What do you do when you come into your manhood and find that you have been led to a trap door.. do you fight?.. do you stand up and make something of the scraps laying around you?... or do you lay down and die?.. This is a fundamental dynamic within African american culture.. its also the center of questions like, why women like thugs... And, if we cant understand how black masculinity has been pressed down and stamped out and how these dudes coming up in the streets, though they are uneducated as to the how and why and when of history and whatnot.. they do have an innate sense of what manhood actually is.. and how you need to defend yourself.. and how you need to make things happen.. as opposed to beggin somebody for something.. Its a hell of predicament to be in.. but survival is a basic instinct. If you listen to the lyrics, then watch the video, you can see that he plays on what your expectations are.. that he is a hood selling dope or robbing folks.. but when we see that he is just selling his CDs, a new context is drawn around the whole song.. and you can then see what parts are hyperbole and what parts are the real message. I can feel this from begining to end.. I have known too many young men like him that have had to struggle from the craddle to the grave through all of the instability of a society that does not value their life.. Its a hell of a predicament to be in.. and so you see dudes selling Cds, DVDs, clothes.. cars.. doing whatever they can to make it out here.. and all of it is illegal.. but what does legality mean when the law is against you?.. when the society is against you?...

    Can you feel that? Can you respect that?
