Nipsey Hussle – I Don’t Stress Lyrics

(Intro)
I don’t stress out, ni**a
Poke my chest out, ni**a
Weight on my shoulder, bring the best out, ni**a
Get it right or you get left out, ni**a

(Verse 1)
Playing Pac in my cassette loud, ni**a
I remember feeling like a stepchild, ni**a
I would hate to see my momma stressed out, ni**a
Black Sam would tell me, poke your chest out, ni**a
I could die today I’ve made the set proud, ni**a
And I could fly away, but I respect vowels, ni**a
Used to always say I’d make the whole world feel this
Now I’m on the tour around the whole world, ni**a
Paparazzi waiting at my hotel, ni**a
Smoking while I’m driving that’s with no L’s, ni**a
20 bands a month just for your bills, ni**a
Princess cut diamonds up in your grill, ni**a
Now smile in every camera and show you’re a trill ni**a
You feed em what you want cause that’s your kill, ni**a
And through the darkest days I was like, oh well, ni**a
Westside neighborhood against the whole world, ni**a

(Chorus)
I don’t stress out, ni**a
Poke my chest out, ni**a
Weight on my shoulder, bring the best out, ni**a
Get it right or you get left out, ni**a

(Verse 2)
I never fold under mental pressure
I get better, ain’t no code to y’all misconception
I’m just special, this an ode to my innersection
And God bless and save my soul from this imperfection
I can’t measure with a number, all these ni**as resting
But it’s a lot when you that young to witness life and death
You shellshocked, but ain’t no tears involved
Accept it all, that’s how the world revolve
Every 12 months you live another year you ball
Hindsight, it’s 20-20 that was really God
Cause looking back it ain’t no reason why we ain’t get caught
Mission after mission, we was tripping
Me and Baby Bolt Da Fatts in Lil Killa Dave’s kitchen
Police in the front, pistols in the court
When it hit the fan you get to find out who you are
Nervous as a bi**h, was sweat dripping down my palm
And think through it, thug, you got to stay calm

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Playing BIG in my cassette loud, ni**a
I remember feeling like the best out, ni**a
They ain’t feel me then, but I’m a threat now, ni**a
I’m the one that represent the West now, ni**a
Almost didn’t make it cause the set foul, ni**a
Sh*t’ll chip you quicker than the West now, ni**a
Lock you up in cages, how it went down, ni**a
Ship you out of down, you need to pimp out, ni**a
Plenty times I’ve felt like this the end now, ni**a
But I catch my 2nd wind around the 10th round, ni**a
Only God knows to where it went down, ni**a
But if you see us up that’s cause we been down, ni**a
Stand up, we don’t never sit down, ni**a
Man up, go and get a b**ch now, ni**a
Damn cuhz, look at how my campaign killing
Panoramic views, chilling under 12-foot ceilings

(Outro)
I don’t stress out, ni**a
I don’t stress out, ni**a
