Danny Seth – Our City Lyrics (feat. Louis Mattrs)

Shit is scary, man, it’s making Suge shook
So I’mma keep my lyrics so clean not even 7 maids will find a speckle of dirt in between
And have the elders playing this shit to their teens and tell em this what hip hop needs
[Bridge]
Bright lights in my city, I’m dark knight
Off a xanee cause I got long flight
I told my baby girl I gotta save the city
Cause within my city, man, they call me dark knight
[Hook: Louis]
I’m the dark knight of my city
Catch me on the block all night
And I ain’t worried bout my sinners
They be riding with me till I die
They see me rollin in the streets
So they know it’s alright
Yeah, I’m the dark knight of my city
Catch me on the block all night, on the block all night
[Verse 2: Danny Seth]
This rapping shit, I do it for my city’s sake
And I should be a stylist how I changed the game
Me and the music, we kinda integrate
I drop a couple bars and rappers then disintegrate
Lyrically, I’m punching in a different weight
And f**k the other-side, I serve em like a dinner plate
Anyway, let me continue what I was chatting bout
I had a dream to make it overseas
I called my brother Jesse, got my clothes
And got my bags and started packing now
He told me it would be alright, I listened
Fast forward a couple months and they still doubting
So many ups and downs I feel like I just climbed a mountain
I find it funny how I had a fanbase in the US
Before my own people finding out about me
I guess it bothered me but I just kept writing
Little do my city know I’m tryna make em shine
For longer than a second like some lightning
It’s freighting, the scene up in my city need a viking
To cross the seas and hold the torch up and till it’s dying, it’s quiet
Uh, yeah I swear it’s f**king quiet
So now I got the labels offering
My heart is saying no, my wallet saying let em in
Then I play my tapes, and they saying “where’s the hits?”
And if I hear that one more time I swear to gosh I’m gonna be sick
They tell me justify the music
Tell me what you see
I tell em this what hip hop needs
[Bridge]
Bright lights in my city, I’m dark knight
Off a xanee cause I got long flight
I told my baby girl I gotta save the city
Cause within my city, man, they call me dark knight [Intro]
Uh, tell ’em this what hip hop needs, uh
[Verse 1: Danny Seth]
I grew up in a city
Where they never gave a pity or a f**k
Unless you’re doing grime or UK hip hop
Shit, I guess you’ll never buss
But I was thinking different
Wasn’t off the acid but I always had a vision
How I saw the USA was up for acquisition
So I got a pen and pad and jotted down my proposition, uh
The British Coming
We did it on our own, no help, no nothing
And as far as pulling through for my city
Well, I guess it got me feeling like a plunger
Uh, I wonder if they love me or they hate
Cause of what I’m wearing instead of digesting what I’m saying
The internet, it has a way to make me look good
And my Instagram is looking like a look book
But why the f**k I got more followers on that than on my SoundCloud?
