Lyrics

Nipsey Hussle – Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)

Link

Rap niggas, they just wanna double date with you
Twitpic and show these hoes that they affiliate with you
Labels used to treatin’ rappers like a slave, nigga
Starvin’ artist, “Just be happy with your fame, nigga”
Shit changed, now it’s such a different game
All the niggas like myself is controlling everything

Was a charismatic nigga, I don’t play as much
Cause life is real when you live it in a place like us

Speaking to they soul, so they tell me I’m they favorite
Been through it myself, yeah, I know how it make you
Never let ’em judge you cuz they ain’t you
I could tell a long story or just say I’m grateful
I could tell a gang of reasons or just say I’m faithful

I’m not a rapper or a poet, I’m a poem, nigga
Always pull up in foreign that’s never loaned, nigga
Always speaking my music straight from my soul, nigga
My business partners Jewish but I’m all nigga

I been that nigga before the fame happened
That tell them hoes go get my name tatted
I love my life, y’all could hate that shit
All the smart money got they bets on me
And all them real niggas wish the best for me
All these bad bitches got some sex for me
Shout out them bad bitches getting dressed for me
They down to stand in line ’cause it’s well worth it
Pull up to my shows in Chanel purses
They jeans fit the worst but they smell perfect
Never argue with they niggas but they yell verses

 

In depth

  1. Nipsey Hussle – Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)
    • Without having to take a chance and get some money
  2. D.L. Hughley
    • Everybody who is doing something seems to meet an unfortunate end
    • The beautiful thing about people is that when they get it, they take off
    • They are here for such a brief time, yet so impactful
    • Young men and women are losing their lives to situations
      • Documentary
      • Meeting with the Police
    • Deconstruct the value of our lives to one another
      • Start mattering more than the issues
    • Church
      • The only reason that church exists is that black mothers are there praying for these young people
      • Praying it gets better
      • I promise you it does get better
      • You take the best of us
      • The very thing you need, you take it

 

My Quick Take

You want to be disliked.  You want to be hated?

Reach for that empty middle seat.

Misunderstanding of the misunderstood.

It is always a good thing that in your memorial, they don’t talk about your talent, whom you were, but who you are.

How you got them closer to their best self; to their better ego.

He took my heart, when he said don’t worry I got you.

Having someone in a better place is noble.

I remember the words of  a man that I met at the laundry room a year or so ago.

Wisdom of a retiree.

Something about some people are Christians, they just don’t know it.

Always confusing the matter, didn’t know we was on the same team.

Here is to taking the time to meet and know the people here to raise and hold you.

They might not be here much longer once they are shown.

Of all the letting go, it is having to pour soil on laid down souls that breaks me.

People like to say that you never miss what you never had; but that is not all the way true.

Some people keep their light sheltered and speak in ways that is hard to understood.

Missing out on good sense; cause of what it is clothed in.

Here is to the cost they pay to steady and strengthen my feet.

Prayer

Let us continue to let the young lives live.

There is always a spot held for each of God’s creation.

It hurts to see it sit empty.

 

Dedicated

I heard Nipsey grandma in an interview talk about hoping some good come out of it; having faith.

And, so I am not far out of school here.

To God be the Glory.

As always, taking without permission.

But, Daylyt I couldn’t let sit still.

Verses

  1. Stood by me in my trials
    • And I bestow on you a kingdom, just as My Father has bestowed on Me, so that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones
      ( Luke 22:29 )
  2. Light
    • But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light.
      ( Ephesians 5:13 )

 

In Closing

In closing when you are a friend of God, you give him maximum room to work in people’s lives.

You do not think too deeply into little things.

You introspectively look back at how he is working in your life; all the slow downs and put backs.

And, you think and say let him take his time; especially when he is working with young people.
