Raekwon - Came Up Lyrics

We pop bottles in this bitch to get our name up
I come from under the bottom nigga I came up
So many niggas surround me, wanna flame somethin'
I'm like cool out, no money here, change up
We pop bottles in this bitch to get our name up
I come from under the bottom nigga we came up
So many niggas surround me, wanna flame somethin'
I'm like cool out, no money here, change up

[Verse 1:]
Little leather niggas get it
I come from the back door with 40 lil live niggas with me
All on mollys, it's nothing
Fresh niggas they up
Some in the mailroom in the club lighting blunts up
Walk through new jury, clothes is silks only
Besides galllons of milk with big bills on me
True the jewels is fluorescent
They used to light niggas who got all they shines out stretchin'
Do you in the dark, whatever come out the light
Better be bread, or weed, or gold tonight
Get to schemin' shoot the shit up with real niggas in here
They all mine as long as they know the night
Yeah that's the shit I don't like
Shawty gave me dome hype
Grab her facemask, don't bite
I'm in my mansion in the zone writin'
I'm known for throwin' lightnin'
I stand alone yo, one titan


[Verse 2:]
Post the seven in the rain
Come through with seven chains
They call me legend out in Maine
Known for tiltin' niggas wigs
Don't kill the kids for not knowin' where real rap remains
Treacherous MC, react like Jack Dempsey
Yeah the Billboard whorin' up MC
Fly as ever, one level, one rebel
Who cool out in the Cayamans with thugs, crews, and gangs
Yeah I rap for the merrier
Dance my ass off, paper chasin' Captain, America
Fly high, live as a drive-by
Team of live wires who catch you outside we fire liars
Yeah them blow kids live on the gold kids
Never go broke, grab a tote to smoke nigs
Killas know to call me to go
For murderous rap music that get inside your head it's dope

  17. Hunde söhne

    I'm living in germany and studying on an university right now in Heidelberg and i always listened to Rap.
    Nothing else. Just Rap....
    The music is not the reason why people do what they do.
    The environment of them is the reason, but Rapmusic always kept me on the ground, so i could run and reach my target, if you know what i mean...

  18. Kaio Smith

    im sorry...i didnt know that greats such as Quintin Tarantino and Amy Winehouse, who are NOT "in the middle" or in "low paying jobs" who are/were massive hip hop fans, were poor and throw finger signs.....your idiotic Canadian arse can continue to throw out unintelligent insults at shit you dont understand with your peanut sized mind...just face it tho.... no one will ever care about what you do in your life. fukn nugget

  23. Buzzman182

    elaborate? I think your find that you are the one making retarded comments that you know little about. You little racist fuck.

  24. BWCmike

    ur dumb lol!

  25. Buzzman182

    Also please refrain from usuing racial epithets. It demonstrates that your brain is inadequate and you cannot live amongst civilised human beings.

  26. Buzzman182

    You are the most retarded person in the world. Congratulations!!....
    I'd like to point out that Hip-Hop is enjoyed by a variety of people of different nationalities, Race, Religions, Gender and Social class. I myself am a fan of many types of music ranging from Rock,Jazz,Blues, Metal, Hip-Hop,Grime etc and am a Hip-Hop artist myself. I am not poor nor am i rich, yet you stated " Rap fans generally work low paying jobs" how does someones taste in music relate to their social class? Dickhead. :)

  49. Benjamin Farias

  50. BoChosen


  51. BWCmike

    Yes but the difference is that there are also people in the middle who listen to country and rock. Not rap though. Rap fans generally work low paying jobs until they're thirty, and then they realize that they're fifteen years into their career and they're still wearing gay clothes and struggling to get by. They wonder if it's to late to stop throwing up finger signs and earn any level of respect in society, and it is to late by then. You can find them in prisons and shelters by 40.

  52. tizosh7

    Thank goodness Rae keeping puttin sumthin out!! The radio is a no fly zone!! PHILLY REPRESENT

  53. jrs5

    There are millions of people who are "down at the bottom" working at mcdonalds who listen to rock, country etc, that aren't "wiggers"
    So your point is? And that is far from the world of rap, that is the world of lower income families. So you clearly don't know anything about it, why speak on it?
    That is the reason for your rant on rap? You really are ignorant.
    Seems to me like you have a personal problem.

  54. Laquant Caldwell

    That's my uncle I remember I seen him at our condo in Philly years ago

  55. jrs5

    Yes you are right, good job pointing that out! The difference is i'm not on here insulting other peoples grammar, I was pointing out how stupid you were to be talking about others grammar while misspelling losers. It's not like that is a difficult word to spell, and you want to insult other people for that?
    So you think an entire group of people are retarded. You obviously know nothing about rap. And since you are making such a moronic assumption, you clearly aren't to bright yourself.

  56. Brendan M

    ah man, this first beat is way iller than the one in the song! wtf This shit is wack after 30 seconds!!

  57. BWCmike

    But shouldn't have a capital B.
    Losers shouldn't have a capital L, and it should be followed by a period. Wearing clothes while making money is not the same as making money by wearing clothes. All of my sentences are perfectly correct, both in grammatical form and, more importantly, in content. Also, spelling and grammar are not the same thing. I'm pretty sure your comment supports my argument that rap fans are indeed mentally retarded.

  58. jrs5

    I think you mean Losers*
    And you're insulting their grammar? Lol good going. Idiot.
    Secondly you can "get money" by wearing many different types of clothes. Clothes have nothing to do with the money someone can get. Also, perverting your use of grammar? Holy shit, you can't even come up with a correct sentence yourself. So no, rap is not for "retards" But it sure looks like you are one.

  59. qaz122

    this beat is still too dope doe

  60. qaz122

    yo Rae listen to this nigga

  61. BWCmike

    Rap is for retards. Read a book you dropout loosers. You can't "get money" by wearing ridiculous clothes and purposely perverting your use of grammer.

  62. TigerSttyle

    u just read my thoughts u my fuckin bro man

  63. Monsieur7295

    Hate that when the intro beat is way better than the actual one, just like in suit and tie of justin timberlake, anyway if anyone finds the nae of the first beat, please...
