Nipsey Hussle - Overtime Lyrics

[Intro - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
Gotta light up to shit like this, nigga
And I ain't even said it, or wrote it yet
I just feel it, you know?

Overtime, cause I ain't have a mic
I was in that Chevy...

[Hook - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
Overtime, cause I ain't have a mic
I was in that Chevy playin' Savage Life
Niggas lookin' like I had it wrong
Now them niggas know I had it right
They don't know about them sleepless nights
Them lookin' for a reason nights
They say it's six degrees in life
Opportunity, preparation, made me this nice

[Verse 1 - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
You see me up in Neiman's, right?
My chain and my pinkie bright
I valet this Mercedes Benz
Lookin' like, somebody that people like
Can't but help to think how fake it is
This world and this music biz
I just want all of this paper, though
So maybe I can try and change the shit
Maybe, me, I'm too ambitious
Or maybe this a new dimension
Maybe them, they too religious
Maybe they judge my intentions
But either way, I'm on my mission
In the sky, for our love, I'm a tie a ribbon
Life's a bitch, lady luck my way
Forever you my lady, I'm your fuckin' nigga

[Hook - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
Overtime, cause I ain't have a mic
I was in that Chevy playin' Savage Life
Niggas lookin' like I had it wrong
Now them niggas know I had it right
They don't know about them sleepless nights
Them lookin' for a reason nights
They say it's six degrees in life
Opportunity, preparation, made me this nice

[Verse 2 - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
Cappin' for a cheaper price
Hustlin' for a bucket, keep your sneakers tight
Shoot a box, catch the cheapest flight
If it land, thank you Jesus Christ
You ain't gon' get it till you see it right
And jump off in this legal life
Feel the pressure from your people, right?
Still choose to lead 'em right
Sometimes I rap about my feature price
Or all of my defeats in life
They told me don't believe the hype
But I felt like this 'bout myself before the mic

[Nipsey Hu$$le phone interview]

[Hook - Nipsey Hu$$le:]
Overtime, cause I ain't have a mic
I was in that Chevy playin' Savage Life
Niggas lookin' like I had it wrong
Now them niggas know I had it right
They don't know about them sleepless nights
Them lookin' for a reason nights
They say it's six degrees in life
Opportunity, preparation, made me this nice

    I'm a 40 year old white dude from a small town in Minnesota, and I've listened to rap since I was around 12 years old. I never gave this man's music a listen until today, and I have to say that I wish I would have sooner but I'm glad I finally did. He's like a modern day Jesus Christ. His music is deep and filled with knowledge. Thank God for sending us a teacher like this. Rest in peace my brother.

  82. Son Boss

    I viewed it right
    Put up a fight
    Demons always lie
    Angels are all alike
    Only thing i see fall from heaven are the tears of prayers to get me right but
    Nothing ever be alright
    I see deep in life
    Don't believe the hype
    Look at any life
    Real life story's bleed for a strip
    fight All these lonely nights
    we fight for another life
    get the feeling when you lie
    Blessings of truth come every night for I'm right
    Show me the same love don't even look right
    Watch it all go away
    Like that night when she walked away
    Ain't I worth a fight for what you want in life was all a lie
    that ain't right
    Go get married like it says when I read those lines
    Never changed the hype
    I'm impressed of how you adress me with all those lies
    I bet you ain't gonna fight for what you want in life.

  83. tas adam
