Make It In The City Lyrics
[Verse 1:]
I'm just a thug on the other side of the law
Raised in the hood, never though I'd make it this far
I went from standing on the block, dealing to my glock
Wearing Prada, gold or triple beam
I even got hassled a lot, mainly by crooked cops
Life wasn't easy as it seems

[Chorus:]
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind

[Verse 2:]
Gets harder every day
To come up with the rent and I ain't got a job
Ain't got a job
Tryna get the bills paid
But don't wanna get locked up no more
Locked up no more
See my... the officer
Almost caught me with that stub
Tossed it so he wouldn't find the tricks
Wouldn't find the tricks
Not to mention my baby mama
The bitch is as greedy as f*ck
That child support steady on my kids

[Chorus:]
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind

[Verse 3:]
Got a little personal but let me break it down
I'm not the only one out here that's going through it now
It's international, recession's all around
We gotta be here for each other when it hit the ground
I know you're hurting and working
Don't give up, it'll all work out
Can't ever stop hoping for certain
I'll be grinding til the day that I die

[Chorus:]
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
Where we stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Stay on the grind
Tryna make it in the city
