Every day is a struggle How to hustle some doe If you was raised in the hood Well then you already know It be days that be good But mostly money be slow Have you ever been hungry before?
Steady on the grind Stead on the grind âCause I got to make it happen My family depending on me
Steady on the grind Steady on the grind âCause I got to make it happen âaint nobody gone do it for me
Ha ooh wa ooh ha ooh wa ooh Ha ooh wa ooh ha ooh wa ooh
Steady on the grind Daily on the grind Money on my mind So heavy on my mind So heavy on my mind
Mommy got a job makin' bout six-somethin' an hour She became the breadwinner when daddy was unemployed Working forty-plus hours and kissing ass Seeming like the only honest way she can get some cash She struggglin' â she don't know I be hustlin' pulling my own weight I be hearing them fuss and fightin' at night mad late Over economics; it's logic meaning they don't got it Living in the projects, money's the only object She makes $280 a week, standing on her feet The ends aint even meeting â the family ain't eatin' Cause if taxes is 10%, and the rest if for the rent Then crime is what u get and niggaz is innocent See it really ain't about if you eatin' or not eatin' It's breathin' or not breathin' â freedom or not freedom ânother day, ânother way, ânother dollar spent Gotta make a revolution out of fifteen cent.
