EARTHGANG - West Side Like Gatsby Lyrics




[Johnny Venus:]
Spent a hundred twenty G's for a piece of paper
And a piece of mind
I swore I could have found and I find that
These institutions designed for the uplifting
But got me caged up
Mama bragging to her friends, yeah my baby's on the way now
Too behind to get some a, turned into some pay, any day, now
But I play, now that I ain't got fact checked in years
Never had to learn much, but ain't gripped the wheels in years
And for that, I take a quiz on, kind of hard to study facts
When you know exactly how it is at home
Only job is keep kids who gon' be jobless in a couple years
With some loans up to their ears
So I got to split time between mastermind
And doing these itty-bitty medial assignments
Call home like, "What the time is?"
I've been working for three, almost four
How much longer can y'all go?
Plus my mans just passed so this can't be life
I'm looking at my hand like, "Yo this can't be right"
But, we on fire at night like the sun in the dark
Flipped the sheet, loose leafed to a future that be way too bright
You done ran into some niggas who be way too, way too right

And where I'm from, yeah, they ask me
I tell them Westside like Gatsby
And where I'm from, yeah, they ask me
I tell them Westside like Gatsby

[Doctur Dot:]
Uh
Underneath the moon, 2002, I think it was June
I'm riding around, spitting lyrics 'till my Billy's just a kid
But even then, authenticated my spirit to designated
And then, Angels told me they were coming
I'm under the assumption most niggas on stage in black face
So I keep mine as clean as I can muster
I must have seen the same act a hundred times
Circums ruin punch lines and similar album covers
Don't call us conscious, 'cause we'll knock the fuck out
Try to lock us up i boxes 'cause they worried about our sound
And the word around town, the doctor's on medication
And that nigga Johnny Venus only fucking with caucasians
Crazy how these rumors only make us more crazy
And these shady ass niggas only make us more amazing
Jason, like nanny nanny blew twice, the future looking too bright
Might need to buy some new eyes 'cause if I continue, blind
You fools gon' need some new minds, I'll eat your girl in two bites
You cupped her like some blue lights, time wasted in thee
She on your couch, telling you her dreams
She in my bed, struggling to breathe
And that's the difference between
You rap ducks and the dragon with some wings
I never have to worry about a thing when I function

Now all of them do music, humping and drug consumption
Consumption, consumption, consumption
Now all of them do music, humping and drug consumption
Consumption, consumption, consumption

[Johnny Venus:]
And where I'm from, yeah, they ask me
I tell them Westside like Gatsby
And where I'm from, yeah, they ask me
I tell them Westside like Gatsby
