August Alsina - The Encore Lyrics




Something I gotta tell somebody, just in case you didn't know
I gotta show you where I came from, so you can see where I gotta go
See I started out with nothing and I've been through some things
But there really ain't a difference, I gotta gotta little change

I've been hood rich and I've been broke
Singing in the choir y'all, even sold dope
See I've been clean and I've been high
Lived like a king and I had to get by
Had a couple tens in my bed at one time
Them down as bitches when I didn't had a dime
Seen it all, heard it all, did it all
Appreciate the rise, hope I never gotta fall

Always thought it would be good but I never had it this good
I remember doing bad when a nigga didn't have, now I'm thinking back
Always thought it would be good but I never had it this good
Had to get it how I could, I was so misunderstood out the hood, now it's all good

Old friends came in with, saying that I didn't act the same
But I wasn't really different, it was them who started to change
Had to go a new direction, didn't wanna let 'em go
That was way before I noticed that they didn't wanna grow

I've been hood rich and I've been broke
Singing in the choir y'all, even sold dope
See I've been clean and I've been high
Lived like a king and I had to get by
Had a couple tens in my bed at one time
Them down as bitches when I didn't had a dime
Seen it all, heard it all, did it all
Appreciate the rise, hope I never gotta fall

Always thought it would be good but I never had it this good
I remember doing bad when a nigga didn't have, now I'm thinking back
Always thought it would be good but I never had it this good
Had to get it how I could, I was so misunderstood out the hood, now it's all good
