Hold It Down
(Prod. By Cassius G)


[Verse]
Sometimes I feel hurt, sometimes i feel like dirt
Sometimes I feel like this pain is much more than I deserve—but word
I feel outworked—sometimes, so then I get back up on tha grind
Every time I get up on tha beat and break it down
I do forget a lil piece of why my head is hangin now
But shit it always pan out, some way, it gimme all that I can take
It see my soul yearnin so it serve another plate of what’s hurtin
Even tho they know a brother wanted steak
Hurtin but you know a brother workin on a change in tha game
But I’m in my head workin on a play like Kobe
Got on my twitter cuz they don’t know me
Still prolly confusin tha new me wit tha old me, check it out
Not tha same that I used to be, rollin wit my old lady usually
Now I’m all alone tho I think she got used to me
Glad she wasn’t hatin and stayin cuz she was usin me
Know a couple niggas is waitin to see me do my thing
Tha rest of these muthafuckas could take a whole dick to tha face
Fuxk this rap bitch in tha ass tell me how does it taste
I been eatin yo shit forever time to serve a new plate
I been puttin in work forever time to see tha pay
Check 1 2 let a playa get it straight
Fitna rep my crew til tha day I meet tha gates
Made of pearls from tha world they gon see I did my thang
Couldn’t do it alone and lost some friends on tha way
Saw them niggas changin on me tha shit ain’t a thang
To all tha ones that did remain especially since day number one
Mayne you know ya bro appreciate tha way you…


[Hook]
Hold it down for me
Hold it down for me
Hold it down for me
Hold it down, down


She say sometime she feel hurt, sometime she feel like dirt
Sometimes she wanna be somebody else
Cuz tha person she became ain’t really her
She say she know she got worth
But she cant really find work and her man don’t treat her like she deserve
She really wanna leave but ain’t really got tha nerve
She just want a lil peace she ain’t really gettin served
She wanna be free wanna fly like a bird do
Medicated weed gettin high like tha bird flu got her
Lil fish feelin like she been gettin swallowed
But she really got teeth and she wanna be a piranha
She worried she jus gon become this nigga baby mama
She don’t really want tha drama or tha problems no mo
She wanna strike out on her own
But she scared cuz she never really did it all alone
I told her that I understand
Its hard out here sometimes tryna chase what you want
Gotta get to it tho and never give it up
Mayne you gotta keep ya faith on you girl no matter what
If you gotta leave where you be you in a rut i could see
And ya nigga might not seem like he wanna let you be
If it mean be alone but yo life is not for he
Mean that you gotta find tha purpose you received
From tha Lord hear tha word focus on it and believe
That the place He made for you is ready for you to receive
Know that any obstacles He placed off in yo way
Ain’t gon be mo than you can take if you have faith you can achieve
She just looked at me
Tol me that she got love for tha love she see in me
Told her I reflect all tha things i see in you
And tha way a friend should do
I appreciate the way you…


[Hook]
Hold it down for me
Hold it down for me
Hold it down for me
Hold it down, down


[Bridge]
If you on the East Side, stay down
If you on the West Side, stay down
If you on the North Side, stay down
If you on the South Side, stay down
