In the style of

Kanye West

Syleena Johnson

Lyrics

yea yea
this the real one baby
ha chi town stand up

south side south side
we gon set this
party off right

west side west side
we gon set this
party off right

man i promise
she's so self conscious
she has no idea
what she's doing
in college

that major that
she majored in don't
make no money

but she won't drop out
her parents will look
at her funny

now tell me that
ain't insecure
the concept of school
seems so secure

sophmore three years
aint picked a career
she like forget it
i'll just stay down
here and do hair

cause that's enough money
to buy her a few pairs
of new airs
cause her baby daddy
don't really care

she's so precious
with the peer pressure
couldn't afford a car
so she named her
daughter alexus

she had hair so long
that it looked like weave
then she cut it all off
now she look like eve

and she be dealin'
with some issues that
you can't believe
single black female
addicted to retail
and well

uh
and when it falls down
who you gonna call now
come on come on
and when it all falls down

man i promise
i'm so self conscious
that's why you
always see me with
at least one of
my watches

rollies and pasha's
done drove me crazy
i can't even
pronounce nothing
pass that versaychee

then i spent
400 bucks on this
just to be like n####
you ain't up on this

and i can't even
go to the
grocery store

without some ones
that's clean and a
shirt with a team

it seems we living
the american dream
but the people
highest up got the
lowest self esteem

the prettiest people
do the ugliest things
for the road to riches
and diamond rings

we shine because
they hate us
floss cause they
degrade us
we trying to buy
back our 40 acres

and for that paper
look how low we a'stoop
even if you in a benz
you still a n####
in a coupe

come on come on
when it falls down
who you gonna call now
come on come on
when it all falls down

i say f### the police
that's how i treat em
we buy our way out of jail
but we can't buy freedom

we'll buy a lot
of clothes when
we don't really
need em

things we buy to
cover up what's inside
cause they made us
hate ourself and
love they wealth

that's why shortys
hollering where the
ballas at

drug dealer buy jordans
crackhead buy crack
and a white man get
paid off of all of that

but i ain't even
gon' act holier
than thou cause
f### it i went
to jacob with 25 thou

before i had a house
and i'd do it again
cause i wanna be
on 106 and park
pushing a benz

i wanna act
ballerific like
it's all terrific
i got a couple
past due bills
i won't get specific

i got a problem with
spending before
i get it

we all self conscious
i'm just the first
to admit it

yea come on come on
and when it falls down
who you gonna call now
come on come on
when it all falls down

stouh side south side
we gon set
this party off right
west side west side
we gon set
this party off right

chi town chi town
we gon show em
how we get down
hustlin aint easy
its like a safety belt
save my life
come on
