Oddisee – Nnge (feat. Toine) (The Iceberg Album)

[Verse One: Oddisee] I mean what is there to fear I’m from black America this is just another year If you’re new to disrespect by your elected puppeteer Well let me show you how to persevere Just get up every time somebody knocks you down And celebrate in front of people like they’re not around And if they try to build a wall to keep you balling out of bounds Use the bench they told to you warm to keep the fences knocking down Shout out to latinos because hustling ain’t illegal We praying to the east or the father, we all are equal But if parted they will progress in stopping us getting C notes Well let me ask the crowd, do one of y’all disagree, no This is for chocolate city though I represent the county Until your vote is counted know I got you until I’m outy It’s all about the effort and I’m effortlessly fresher If I’m preaching to choir know they’re bound to get the lecture It went from folks around me, pushing envelopes and boundaries So you won’t only hear me where you found me I’m somewhere asking questions like “Can I be afforded the most?” You better answer me with more than a no Tryin tell ya [Chorus] Ooh, never not getting enough From this life that I’m leading and all I believe in ya’ll know, I ain’t leaving I’m posted, like(x2) This if for the county and the areas surrounding DC, Maryland and Virginia know I’m with you [Verse Two: Toine] What are you willing to let die first Your pride or your freedom The story of my life’s inner conflict It’s like I follow my dreams But how am I supposed to slide in the DM On this mic, is what I’m trying accomplish I used to do it for the fist bumps and applauses But caring about respect started making me nauseous You walk into a room, and bammas speak to you cautious Like employees trying to figure out who the boss is So now I just kick it for, the most divine Working overtime Sitting with an open bottle, looking for an open mind Trying not to be aggressively jaded Because I find myself just getting faded And I know that ain’t quite me I step up for whatever it might be And RSVP when inspiration invite me Because who else gonna look out for those who look like me Another disenfranchised boy in a white tee [Chorus] Ooh, never not getting enough From this life that I’m leading and all I believe in ya’ll know, I ain’t leaving I’m posted, like(x2) This if for the county and the areas surrounding DC, Maryland and Virginia know I’m with you [Verse Three: Oddisee] All I know is love I give it and I get it, I can never get enough Sympathy to enemies cause hate ain’t in blood And if you can relate you’ve given up I’m trying to make the most of it though Getting close is a no Want nothing less than yes because it’s suppose to be so The cost of nothing’s too low My expectations are too high I’d rather die Than be complacent with the way that it goes Apathy is a disease and we’re just steady sharing needles Unaffected people carry evil Ease is what we know We’ve got to raise the bar though The sorrows of today will give away to a tomorrow So what’s a week of paid leave And empty promises of hiring Just to fire me before retirement I’m trying to make more in one day than 401K So give me what you promised to pay Because it’s never enough [Chorus] [Chorus] Ooh, never not getting enough From this life that I’m leading and all I believe in ya’ll know, I ain’t leaving I’m posted, like(x2) This if for the county and the areas surrounding DC, Maryland and Virginia know I’m with you
