The Marathon Continues (Nipsey Tribute) Lyrics

Dave East – The Marathon Continues (Nipsey Tribute) Lyrics

[Intro - Nipsey Hussle]
That's why I called my thing The Marathon
'Cause I, I'm not gon' lie and portray, um, this ultimate poise
Like I been had it figured out
Nah, I just didn't quit
That's the only distinguishing quality
From me and probably whoever else is goin' through this
Went through this, or is gonna go through this
Is that I ain't quit
I went through every emotion
I went through every emotion with tryna pursue what I'm doing
You know what I mean?
And I think that what, what's gon' separate whoever's gon' try to go for something is that, you ain't gon' quit
That's, you know, you really gon' take the stance of I'm gon' die behind what I'm gettin' at right here

[Chorus - Dave East]
Your voice keep playin' in my head
Don't wanna believe you're dead
No way that no nigga killed you
I know that's not what I read, Goddamn Nip
We was both rollin' but you was really my man Nip
You made me proud to tell the whole world I'm a damn crip
This marathon gon' continue nigga I can't quit
This marathon gon' continue nigga I can't quit
This marathon gon' continue nigga I can't quit

[Verse - Dave East]
I can still hear you screamin' neighborhood

[?] gang when you would see me, why they hate on cuz
I just sent you a song, was waitin' on your verse
We was doin' a tape together, they ain't know your worth
Nobody told me after Freaky died it's gon' get worse
They ain't understand your vision
You spoke for them nights I was hungry we shake in prison
But they just hate you did it
I asked you how to start a clothing line, you had me out on Slauson
Blue Laces was my shit, the blueprint to bein' bosses
You created that
Remember when you played that beat for Clarity?
You gave out so much free game that shit was charity
You was at my birthday my momma asked me about you
She used to ask what my shirt say minuses Crenshaw
I'm supportin' my brother, reminding me of myself
Motivated me from the gutter, invited me to your videos
I was smokin' Marathon og with you
Every time I touched down in la I wanted to meet with you
Me and [?] smokin' flight right in the parkin' lot
Fatts had me in the store puttin' me a pack together
Imma listen to your raps forever
On the real fuck how they feel Victory Lap was better
South Central ain't never gon' feel the same
You got me scared cuz, It ain't too many of us left
"Go get that bread cuz." That's what you said before you left
We used to joke how we ain't nothin' like these rap niggas
Told me stay dangerous don't let 'em see you react nigga
I called your phone cryin' laughin' when you slapped that nigga
You just told me congrats East I head you actin' nigga
They killin' kings I no longer wanna chat with niggas
If I could ask God for something just give me back my niggas
If I could ask God for something just give me back my niggas
Neighborhood

[Outro - Snoop Dogg]
Damn, Nip! It's amazing homie. Since you've been gone, you wouldn't believe all the shit that's going on. I drove through your neighborhood the other day, and I seen some Eight Tray Gangstas, some Hoovers, some Bounty Hunters. I seen brothers from everywhere, man. Showin' love, all in your memory. Man, your legacy will live on. Your legacy will live on, nephew. The Marathon Continues. Nipsey Hussle the leader, the father, the brother, the teacher, the king, the God. Live on! Neighborhood. Live on! Live on!

[Dave East]
If I could ask God for something just give me back my niggas
