2Pac – This Ain’t Livin’ (Original Version) Lyrics

[Intro]
This ain’t livin’
Nigga

[Verse 1]
I hear even the smaller G’s be dippin’ Chevy Impalas
While flossin’ their gold D’s, O.G.’s, is who they follow
We swallow tomorrow’s seed, what we leave is hollow
We feed violence and greed, let ’em lead tomorrow
In time, they grip a nine, sippin’ wine, they rap
Still I be starin’, watch the parents sacrifice their child
The love’s gone, a thug’s home, with no love
Feelin’ so strong, make young boys into drug dealers
Now one for adolescents, now dos for those
Keep your friends by your side, even close your foes
Now three for Johnny Law tryin’ to take my chips
I never pulled the trigger, didn’t touch that bitch
Throw your hands in the air, it’s a robbery
It’s Snoop Dogg, nigga ‘Pac, would you ride with me?
Let’s go see what our enemies talkin’ ’bout
When G’s enter the house nobody’s walkin’ out
This ain’t livin’, it’s similar to prison, we’re trapped
My homies jealous plus they tell us that the phones is tapped
I watch my back twenty-fo’ seven
And never let a busta send a G to ghetto heaven, you know
This is how it goes when we floss with flows
Before I toss your hoes, it’ll cost you mo’
I do shows, make a lot of dough, murder my foes
But I’d give it all up, if it would help you grow
This ain’t livin’

[Hook]
(Crazy, you don’t wanna be like me)
Shit, this ain’t livin’

[Verse 2]
Peep it –gunfire is produced at alarmin’ rates
Today’s youth, quick to shoot, get in the car and break
“It Takes a Nation of Millions” if we intend to stop the killin’
Just search your feelings, participatin’ should be appealin’
They’re our seeds and when they bleed, we bleed
That’s what becomes of lonely children, they turn to G’s
Heavenly father can you rescue
My young nation, rest the Lord will protect you, respect due
Not a threat as I step in blue, and check those
That oppose when I froze them fools
And who are you, to watch me fall farther?
I disappeared, reappeared as the doggfather
Follow me now
Skippin’ class, and livin’ fast, will get your ass
Stuck in the Pen’, doin’ life plus ten
Young brother pump your brakes for me
Before you choke, won’t you soak up some game from your big homie
This ain’t livin’, we givin’ you jewels, use ’em as tools
Explode on they industry and fade them fools
You know the rules, gotta be a rider
You can run the red lights but read the street signs, hey
This for all of y’all that keep on raisin’ hell
Put a pistol in your hand and let you fade yourself
It ain’t right, what you put your momma through, young G
Gotta change your life, take the game from me
This ain’t livin’

[Hook]
This ain’t livin’

Slicker Stk – Estranged Lyrics (feat. Quayba)

Love. Odo. Sumor
Its a feeling that you cannot ignore
It Takes over your body and consumes your soul
Once you let it in you don’t wanna let go
You dey ah, then you dey figure sey the whole world be your own
Wherever she’s at feels like home
Then comes the moments where you’re only human and
You no sheda plan am but things begin to get a little different and
You dey here, she dey there, and a cell phone becomes your new friend
That, which was once close is no where near
Now its all memories id love to share
Lets go!

Verse
——
You’re the reason, i’m freezing, negative degrees and
Be like Slicker make high cause i cannot see sh**
So sick I dey hia that Marvin Gaye, healing
Pedal to the metal for your heart I am speeding (vrooom!)
And nothing can crash it, love you and you loving me back makes it fantastic
You’re a classic, tough chick, so Jurassic
Backa you dey carry’s got me going azzmatic (-matic), WOAH!!
Body hot, girl you smokin’ like shisha
You dey give brains, intellectual teacher
Attitude, diva, you’re definitely a keeper
Got me drooling for that kinda dope that ain’t reefer
True talk, girl you’re too strong, make I weak roff
I just wanna Mek you my companion no be show off
I just want you sittin’ by my side when I take off
No dey biz what jealousy go talk, they can piss off

Hook
——
Used to feel like heaven
Now we’re downhill strolling
Up and down, round and round in circles we keep twirling
You know it, I know it was over before it begun
(STK) What you mean it’s over? Baby make we start over
Used to be like morning
Sunrise and bright lights, but now our light is dim and out
We can’t ignite the flame
I might have had my best days with you but baby I’m through
Until I was never hurt

Verse
——
Make i catch plane for ya-(uh!)
Stop a train for ya-(uh!)
Carry your backa for my head top like, Kaya? (Huh?)
You dey claim it’s over but, baby tell a side Nigga
Make he step back! move back! Muje Baya!
When we started off, we was like, Brangelina
Well, rydee I’m the case of the Ex, (“M’adane Mya)
My head dey bash, i loose guard, now she taya
She no dey hia me take do nothing, I’m expired

Repeat Hook

They say real love’s never lost
If e lost aah then it was never real
Whats the deal?….
STK, aye!
