Bryce Vine - The "Thug" Song Lyrics




Rappers be like new whips, two chains, big house, more fame
Money, power, cash, ho's, dripping swag, and puffing dro
And I'm just like, "Can I get some gas and a burrito bowl?"
Cash to pay that extra price to add some fucking guacomole
In it, I admit it, I ain't rich but I've been chilling
Easy living, riding shotty in my Honda Civic
I'm balling on a budget, I've been thugging using benefits
Trigger happy niggas playing too much Sega Genesis
Wow, like lemmings we follow the crowd
Reciting lines more recycled than merry-go-rounds, like
The beat is sick, but when I spit, I give it laryngitis
And when I talk, these women flock, I call them Gallimimus
I just kind of wish that I could say that I hang with a gang
Claim that I'm strapped with an A.K. that goes bangity-bang-bang
Slang bricks full of chronic and quality cocaine
But I'm shamed to say, I got the brain of a nerdy asian kid
The fuck am I supposed to rap about?
I hate math, and Adderall is the one thing that can calm me down
Damn, assume Illuminati is involved
I heard there's like a number you can call
I would tell 'em, yo

I just wanna be a thug
Throw my hands up in the air and shoot a gun
But I'm not really cool
I just do what I do
'Cause I just wanna be a thug
On my own, here we go

I'm a black and white american - a halfrican american
A shade that baffles scholars on the roots of family heritage
Too black to get a skin tan, too white to not want it
Too black to not start sweating when I see police coming
I'm on the brink of a sabbatical, breaking free from the casual
Finding my inner chi, releasing a spirit animal
No, fuck that, 'cause peaceful niggas always be getting shot at
So from here 'out I'm gonna bust rounds like I'm gunning for money and glory
There's always one kid telling girls he's a thug
How he's squeezing on them pieces and he's selling them drugs
We went to the same school, why you tryna be tough?
You ain't a baller, you's a bitch, what you need is a hug
So let them ignore me, never believe in my story
Women will never adore me
Hardly in with all Hollywood cool crowds
Too hyper, normal, and corny
Damn, could use a couple lessons in my swag
Then maybe kids won't think I'm such a f-f-fake

I just wanna be a thug
Throw my hands up in the air and shoot a gun
But I'm not really cool
I just do what I do
'Cause I just wanna be a thug
On my own, here we go

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a hating
Just maybe a little bit bitter
I can't talk about bad bitches and liquor
I'm not the type of dude that can rhyme nigga with nigga
I barely remember roots and I was never was into Swishers
I'm so hypocratical, a vegan and a cannibal
Scalene and equilateral
My brain just told me I should probably calm down
And try to answer the question
"Do you really like rap, or just crave the attention?"
I said

I just wanna be a thug
Throw my hands up in the air and shoot a gun
But I'm not really cool
I just do what I do
'Cause I just wanna be a thug
On my own, here we go
I just wanna be a thug
Throw my hands up in the air and shoot a gun
But I'm not really cool
I just do what I do
'Cause I just wanna be a thug
On my own, here we go

    “Throw my hands up in the air and hear my drug”

    Everything Bryce does is gold. His lyric writing is purposeful.

    Most importantly he’s nothing like the other 99% of hip-hop/rap artists out there today. A breath of fresh air!!

    Any suggestions?

  79. Kenneth Barnett

    I mean..... better than the origiNal ? For sure

  80. Emilia Bauer

    Green Day?

  83. Ryan Swartout

    Just watched this, never heard of him b4. Feel like some binge time is in order love everything about this song

    jessdobbins88

    Damn, I've heard almost every Genere of music coming from him, and I have to say he is very talented! He is a fantastic rapper, & singer! Fantastic Artist Right Here! 🙌🏼🙌🏼💚 Extremely, thankful I checked out more of his music besides, the only song I've heard on the station! (Drew Barrymore) I Love The music and lyrics to that song! 🙃😍😁

  84. Brian Heidemann

    Wow best rap song I've heard in a while

    I think he just a one hit wonder. Not trying to hate but he should of already be famous.

  87. Jaden Riley

    I love how trippy this video gets lol

  88. cjp1017

    Why isn't this on Spotify?

  89. Delaney Greczyn

    Lol I love this song but I just realized he stole the riff from brain stew

    Michael Garcia

    It was purposeful. I think it's a juxtaposition between the different musical cultures/genres he grew up on. Ie Green Day and rap music. Combining the two here is a representation of his identity.

  90. Brooks Seifried

    I can't find this song on Amazon!

  91. Nathan Butler

    This is the first time I've heard this song and I had no idea he could go so hard, fuck

    You should get sued by billie joe dude the guitar is exactly the same as in the song brain stew. Kinda pisses me off like it’s the exact same key and everything

    bloopis

    he sampled the song of course it sounds the same. but he shouldnt be sued for it lmao

    Hash Brown

    Take a Xanax or something. You need to chill like, a lot.
