Brown, Danny - Tell Me What I Don't Know Lyrics




Street smart, Ph.D
Dropped out for a nigga degree
Not on me
Keep the doubles off me
Cause we was living in shit
Couldn't afford property
Lil nigga getting fronting from OGs
Oz of OG bagged up in the Pelle
In a school hall way on a burner celly
Leaving out of class early caught a cell for 20
How long will they last?
Never ending race, chasing cash
One lane going wrong way til I crash
Teacher find my sack, going nowhere fast

Tell me what I don't know
Last night homie got killed at the liquor store
Shot my nigga on the way to get a Swisher
Breaking down the weed when the call got received

We was so ambitious
All we really wanted was new Jordans and some bitches
Flashing bankrolls in the club taking pictures
Thinking we was grown men, really lil niggas
Jumping dope fiends that's owing us for credit
Taking turns catching shells things copacetic
Slice your tomato if you owe us for the lettuce
Running through the sack of D sorta like Jerome Bettis
Now heed the outcome
Hit the block, hit the stash and they found some
Lock us all up for a bag of some
Now we in the county writing letters I miss you

Tell me what I don't know
Hood raid came through kicking down the front door
Now we facing judge, got us sitting up in court
Gave us all probation now we smoke Newports
Tell me what I don't know
Hood raid came through kicking down the front door
Now we facing judge, got us sitting up in court
Gave us all probation now we smoke Newports
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know

And we was so gone ho
Wet a nigga up like he got his poncho
On the block all day chasing that cilantro
Hood raid kicking on the front door
It's like a cycle
You get out, I go in, this is not the life for us
It's like a cycle
You get out, I go in, this is not the life for us

Tell me what I don't know
Last night homie got killed at the liquor store
Shot my nigga on the way to get a Swisher
Breaking down the weed when the call got received
Tell me what I don't know
Hood raid came through kicking down the front door
Now we facing judge, got us sitting up in court
Gave us all probation now we smoke Newports
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know
Tell me what I don't know

    Street smart, Ph.D
    Dropped out for a slanging degree
    9 on me, keep the devils off me
    'Cause we was living in hell, couldn't afford property
    Lil nigga gettin' frontin' from OGs
    Oz of reggie bagged up in the Pelle
    In a school hallways on a burnout celly
    Leaving out of class early, caught a sale for 20
    How long will it last?
    Never ending race, chasin' cash
    One lane going wrong way 'til I crash
    Teacher find my sack, going nowhere fast

    Tell me what I don't know

    [Verse 2]
    We was so ambitious
    All we really wanted was new Jordans and some bitches
    Flashing bankrolls in the club taking pictures
    Thinking we was grown men, really lil' niggas
    Jumping dope fiends that's owing us for credit
    Taking turns catching sales things copacetic
    Slice your tomato if you owe us for the lettuce
    Running through the sack of D sorta like Jerome Bettis
    Naive to the outcome
    Cuz hit the block, hit the stash and they found some
    Lock us all up for a bag and some pistols
    Now we in the county writing letters I miss you


    [Hook]
    Tell me what I don't know
    Hook raid came through kickin' down the front door
    Now we facin' judge, got us sitting at the court
    Gave us all probation now we smokin' Newports
    Tell me what I don't know
    Hook raid came through kickin' down the front door
    Now we facin' judge, got us sitting at the court
    Gave us all probation now we smokin' Newports
    Tell me what I don't know
    Tell me what I don't know
    Tell me what I don't know
    Tell me what I don't know

    [Verse 3]
    And we was so gung ho
    Wet a nigga up like he forgot his poncho
    On the block all day chasin' that cilantro
    Hook raid kickin' on the front door
    Shit is like a cycle
    You get out, I go in, this is not the life for us
    Shit is like a cycle
    You get out, I go in, this is not the life for us

  6. Lazcano

    My favorite song of 2016.

  7. TwitchDM -

    GEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAARRRR!!!!

  8. ii_Exxile

    how tf does this not have more views this whole album a classic

  9. Anthony L

    Damn barely any comments... This slept on!

  10. nagi champa

    Kinda reminds me of Antipop Consortium electro experiments!

  11. The Last Pepsi

    His flow when the beat comes in is PERFECTION

  12. Aura Gang

    dead sounds like a whole nother artist

  13. J Zilla

    One of my favorite albums

  14. Poison Griffin

    Why does Danny brown sound like mos def

    Michael White

    Not at all

    somesquirrel

    yea wat?

  15. EazyEfanboyy

    Someone make an instrumental

  16. Tom Schult

    I love how the loop of "don't know" at the end sounds like "no don't" as well. Even if it's not intentional, it's a great detail.

  17. zahire Coates

    Didn't know danny brown can rap like this ? 😨

    TheNrp8598

    zahire Coates listen to the song DNA by him. He occasionally uses the calmer voice on more serious songs.

    Ian-Devon Lewis

    Also to add. No one was giving him a chance because he sounded like too many at the time (when he was starting out) so switch up his image and approach to separate himself.

  18. AmA Logos

    god fking damn

  19. Einsiedler type beat

    This music makes my horrible life worth living.

  20. Saiki K Fan

    Best song on the album no cap 🤓

  21. Fergus Larter

    This beat is soooo goood

  22. Char The gamer

    Sounds like the exit to a vsauce vid

  23. Joseph C

    It fucking sucks that this album didn't blow up. If any project deserved recognition it was this one. Fuck that. All of his albums do.

  24. Limit Breaker

    Old became new

  25. Igor

    >20k views
    Why is this track so slept on?

    astralbiscuit67

    It was only till recently that this album was made available on YouTube.

  26. Fear & Loathing in Germantown

    This is black rage as a drink and it's fucking smooth

  27. senpie_av

    I wish that he would sing like this more often.

  28. wh0 man

    Loved this whole album, Danny''s creativity is awesome hopefully his next work will catch fire.

  29. Rockstar Skinnys

    Who's this rapping?

    Raghav Raj

    Yeah, he's just in his lower register instead of his usual yelp

    Chris perdue

    This is a 2nd version if Danny Brown?

    6LACK LORD

    Yeah you know Danny is described as a hybrid rapper. Has different voices for rapping

  30. Míchele Cobré

    I love when he rhymes real and sincere and for real like this like on DNA

    TheNrp8598

    Míchele Cobré listen to his project black and brown if you haven’t already

  31. Scooby MiKE

    The instrumentals are insane

  32. F U D G E

    Danny had his mic muted

    VreBot

    @no one what is it?

    no one

    @VreBot its the sound effect discord uses for when your mic unmutes

    VreBot

    @no one gotcha

    jaelyn

    no one sorry to ask but do you got a time stamp

    no one

    @jaelyn 2:22

  33. Shannon Thomas

    This Danny brown he sounds diff

    Enzo

    Yes it is

    Logan Moore

    Wtf this is danny? I'm so confused bro

    Rey Parker

    Logan Moore This is his normal speaking voice. He uses that stretched out yelp on most verses

    Logan Moore

    @Rey Parker i get that now hahaha listening to XXX was even more confusing I remember literally sitting there waiting the whole song for danny to come on and then by the end realized it's just his normal voice LOL for the first couple tracks i was mad confused

    krunkformula

    Listen 2 the hybrid then you will understand

  34. Yo Risky

    Wow how I found this

  35. ZACH ZORLAC

    Sad state of music when a album with tracks like this gets overlooked

    HUgo Boss

    If you re a fan, why would u push this bullshit rhetoric. This album wasn't overlooked by any standard. It got widespread critical acclaim. Especially considering just HOW experimental it is it did really well. Overlooked =/= not played on the radio.

    L F 2nd

    Say it louder for the ones in the back

    nagi champa

    Pop music has been about catchiness at the very least since the 80s...

    Ɑ͞ ̶͞ ̶͞ لں

    HUgo Boss I mean it had the lowest sales soooooo

  36. Jake Peterson

    This beat... feels motivational as hell when I'm at my lowest points.

  37. kilroy was here

    Dude i listen to this when i star to get suicidal and depressed because i can only relate to danny browns problems by a little bit. That relation is with my family being threw some screwed up shit

    Damon Bolt

    Take it easy homie

    torridweiss

    im like kubric with two bricks all love bro

    Meexi

    I know what you mean bro I been through & still dealing with the same shit, music is truly the only thing that makes me happy (+ weed)

    Solomon Zia

    Much love towards you bro. Stay strong and positive.

  38. Sandrit Metalia

    One of the best rappers active
