Nipsey Hussle – “Hussle & Motivate” Lyrics

(Verse 1)
Pull up in motor case, I got a show today
It’s all I’m tryna do, hustle and motivate
Choppers a throwaway, hustle the Hova way
That’s why they follow me, huh, they think I know the way
Cause I took control of things, balling the solo way
And if you counter my trend, I make you my protege
Slauson ave soldier race, n*gg*s don’t know them days
Take you in back of the buildings, make you expose your age
Take you across tracks, make you explode a face
Now you official now, but you got a soul to save
I just been cooking that new, I’m bout to drop in a few
Think if I call it the great, the people gon’ call it the truth
Ain’t really trip on the credit, I just payed all of my dues
I disrespected the game, now my name all in the news
Tripping on all of my moves, quote me on this, got a lot more to prove
Member I came in this b*tch, fresh out the county with nothing to lose

(Chorus)
Don’t do this for nothing, no
From the ground up
Well, I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, no
Not at all, yeah
Like my money real, money real
So I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, not at all
I told her I got it, yeah
I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, not at all
Where the green now?
Hustle and motivate

(Verse 2)
Back in this b*tch like I never left
Stand for some sh*t that you never rep
Passing through stages in life, through the ups and downs, like it’s all just another test
Hit by the rules like a f*cking ref
I got respect in like a hundred sets
Too many chains, need another chest
Playing no games if it wasn’t chess
Cut from that cloth that you couldn’t stretch
Cut from that serpent you couldn’t test
Heavily pressured and under stressed
Even though n*gg*s ain’t show up, it was a mess
Honest and template to the left
Judge a young n*gg* by they address
[?]
Only thing we knew for sure was to bang the set
f*ck living basic, I’m taking risks
f*ck what they saying, I’m saying this
Don’t waste your time, it don’t make you rich, it don’t mean nothing
f*ck ’em so let’s make a grip
Double up, triple up, make assist
Balling so hard, you could play your b*tch
Lead to the lake, if they wanna fish
Make sure them n*gg*s around you stick to the script
This should be written in stone
You should come visit my zone
Don’t take my word, double check all of my flows
Ask ’em how Hussle got on, but f*ck what you owe
This is for everybody who walked down that road
Showed everything, but they showed
Real n*gg*s rich as you nerds
Addressed to whom it may concern

(Chorus)
Don’t do this for nothing, no
From the ground up
Well, I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, no
Not at all, yeah
Like my money real, money real
So I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, not at all
I told her I got it, yeah
I don’t do this sh*t for nothing, not at all
Where the green now?
Hustle and motivate
