Jay-Z Coming Of Age Lyrics    [  Edit Lyrics  ]
[Jay Z]


Come experience... life as we know it

As some of you should know it yeah yeah

Place Marcy Brooklyn

Actions... well y`all know the actions

Uhh I got this shorty on my block always clockin my rocks

He likes the style and profile I think he wanna mock

He likes the way I walk he sees my money talkin

to honies hawkin I`m the hottest nigga in New York and

I see his hunger pains I know his blood boils

He wanna, run with me, I know this kid`ll be loyal

I watched him make a few ends, to cop his little sneakers and gear

then it`s just enough for re-up again

I see myself in his eyes, I moved from Levi`s

to Guess to Versace, now it`s diamonds like Liberace

That`s just the natural cycle, nobody wanna be like Michael

where I`m from, just them niggaz who banned from a gun

We out here trying to make hard white into cohhhhld green

I can help shorty blow out like Afro-Sheen

Plus I can relive my days of youth which is gone

That little nigga`s peeps, it`s time to put him on

Chorus: Jay-Z and Memphis Bleek

It`s time to come up (and hold my own weight, defend my crown)

Gots to lock it down and when they rush (stand my ground)

It`s time to come up (stick up my chest, and make some loot)

Gots to lock it down and when they rush (stand on my own two)

[Memphis Bleek]

I`m out here slingin bringin the drama, tryin to come up

in the game and add a couple of dollar signs to my name

I`m out here servin disturbin the peace, life could be better

like my man reclined in plush leather seats

He`s sellin weight, I`m sellin eight... balls

sixteen tryin to graduate to pushin quarters y`all

I ain`t gon` sweat him I`ma let him come to me

If he give me the nod then these niggaz gon` see

I`m tired of bein out here round the clock

and breakin day, and chasin crackers up the block for my pay

I`m stayin fresh, so chickens check

I`m tryin to step up to the next level, pushin Vettes to the Jets

Diamonds reflect from the sun, directly in your equilibirum

and stunned I`m waitin for my day to come

I got the urge, to splurge, I don`t wanna lifetime sentence

just give me the word


[JZ] Hey fella I been watchin you clockin

[MB] Who me holdin down this block it ain`t nothin

You the man nigga now stop frontin

[JZ] Hahahh I like your style

[MB] Nah, I like YO` style

[JZ] Let`s drive around awhile

[MB] Cool nigga

[JZ] Here`s a thou`

[MB] A G? I ride witchu for free

I want the longterm riches and bitches

[JZ] Have it all; now listen to me

You let them other niggaz get the name, skip the fame

Ten thou` or a hundred G keep yo` shit the same

[MB] On the low?

[JZ] Yeah, the only way to blow

You let your shit bubble quietly


[JZ] Hey keep your cool

The only way to peep a fool is let him show his hand

Then you play your cards

[MB] Then he through dealin I understand

[JZ] Don`t blow your dough on hotties

[MB] The only thing I got in this world is my word and my nuts

and won`t break em for nobody!

[JZ] Hah, I like resume, pick a day, you can start

[MB] From now until death do us part...

Chorus 2X
