Ten Jesus Pieces

Album: God Forgives, I Don't (2012)
  • God forgives, He's so honourable
    But living amongst thieves and niggas like myself
    You will not have that luxury

    I wake up excited, I made it through the night
    Things I did in the dark, will it ever see the light?
    My nerves should be a wreck, I got a bad chick
    She keeps me erect, she loves my ad-libs
    I think I'm a genius, hundred grand a fucking feature
    I do at least three a week, roll up the fucking reefer
    Went from Benihana to Bimini in Bahamas
    Ten chains, no luggage, I'm a big timer
    Niggas claim that they thugging when they dick-riding
    My niggas rather walk, do they own brick climbing
    On the block in my all white sneakers
    Lord knows that my ten Jesus pieces
    Pray for me cause you know a nigga doing wrong
    My homie in the cell, so I had to write a poem
    Count mills for the times that we had it hard
    Asking for a hundred mill as I pray to God

    I do this for my niggas facing hard times
    Empty on them corners if you hustling part time
    Ten chains on, Eric B with mob ties
    Rakim flows, coming from the far side
    Blood diamonds and my pieces from apartheid
    Quick, quote a prayer, pull it from the archives
    I pray for every soul that this music reaches
    Bury me a G, ten Jesus pieces

    Young nigga coming up, they wanna gun you down
    Drinking vodka in the memory of my nigga, damn (I miss you Peanut)
    Riding real slow on them all golds (we had them nigga)
    Shopping for them Os when the mall close
    Repping for your homies when they all gone
    Get empowered then you put your dog on (Real shit)
    All black tees, ten gold chains
    At the Super Bowl, but we in the dope game
    Ten years strong in the same trap
    Ten years blowing on that strong pack
    Lord knows that I wanna live right
    But Lord knows what that Club Liv like (right)
    Forty dollar tab meaning forty grand
    Lord ? got it rolled up in a rubber band
    Holding on the forty in his other hand
    Ten chains on, smoking in the motherland

    I do this for my niggas facing hard times
    Empty on them corners if you hustling part time
    Ten chains on, Eric B with mob ties
    Rakim flows, coming from the far side
    Blood diamonds and my pieces from apartheid
    Quick, quote a prayer, pull it from the archives
    I pray for every soul that this music reaches
    Bury me a G, ten Jesus pieces

    I'm his poltergeist, niggas know I'm more than nice
    All these jewels on, all ?
    I could see it in the sparkle cause it lacklustre
    Black card maxed out, damn black brother
    White collar, black minded
    Chrome Smith and Wesson, back pocket
    Eight shot, bitch I'm a top shotta
    Screaming your affiliations, but that don't matter
    I'm flyin' first class as the snakes slither
    Never blackmail them, motherfucking killer
    On trial and they wanna execute me
    It's really sad, just the fact they never knew me
    True G to the core, feel my texture
    A true G keeps it raw in his lecture
    Keep it simple, white tee, new sneakers
    Dope boy style, ten Jesus pieces

    I do this for my niggas facing hard times
    Empty on them corners if you hustling part time
    Ten chains on, Eric B with mob ties
    Rakim flows, coming from the far side
    Blood diamonds and my pieces from apartheid
    Quick, quote a prayer, pull it from the archives
    I pray for every soul that this music reaches
    Bury me a G, ten Jesus pieces

    Versace shirt, Jesus laying on the chest
    Man I swear Big did it the best, I mean
    Nas did it fresh, Jay did it fresh, I mean
    Ye did it fresh, but man Big did it the best
    And I was so impressed that I went and got ten
    Now I'm stunting on these niggas cause I couldn't back in
    Rose gold, yellow gold, a couple platinum
    And I wear them all at once, I ain't trying to match them
    I remember bumping Mac 10 and that deuce in the corner
    Scraping up for a sandwich and a soda
    Now my strength is up and I'm dangling chains off my shoulders
    But no Jesus piece on mine, cause at times I feel ashamed
    For the reason that I rhyme
    And they say, because I'm Muslim I shouldn't think about the shine
    Or even put it in a rhyme
    It's better things I could talk about or put my money towards
    But for now, I'mma wear these ten chains and floss

    I do this for my niggas facing hard times
    Empty on them corners if you hustling part time
    Ten chains on, Eric B with mob ties
    Rakim flows, coming from the far side
    Blood diamonds and my pieces from apartheid
    Quick, quote a prayer, pull it from the archives
    I pray for every soul that this music reaches
    Bury me a G, ten Jesus pieces

    We untouchable

    Mi historia es complicada, pero al final del dia valio la pena,
    porque ahora estoy trabajando con el jefe

    Yo vivi en Colombia y vivi muchas cosas, me entiende? Writer/s: ERIK ORTIZ, KEVIN CROWE, KYLE ALFONSO MYRICKS, KENNY BARTOLOMEI, WILLIAM ROBERTS, JEFFREY L. OSBORNE, JAMAAL FRANKLIN
