Jon Connor - When I Was Young ft. Chris Webby & Smoke DZA | Текст песни

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
Oh it was beautiful, magical
When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
Oh it was beautiful, magical

[Verse 1: Chris Webby]
Rap was all I ever thought about, listened to, talked about
Back before money was all they talked about, horse shit
When I young, the rappers could really rap, kid
Now they more concerned about they average
Listening to rappers like a student in a lecture
Mimicking the cadences and practicing the gestures
Eminem was rappin bout pills, so I popped those
Swinging my shirt in the air like Petey Pablo
Studied the greats from Pun to Tupac
Walked around my private school with my tapes in a shoe box
Handed my music out to people I sold weed to
Watching MTV, tellin myself thats gonna be you
Tapin the radio and puttin it on cassette
Now Im gettin bombs after my shit by Funk Flex
Its a trip, man I just sit back and roll the purple
Now watch this whole thing come around full circle


[Verse 2: Smoke DZA]
Young nigga, influenced by the TV heavy
Eatin Little Debbies, tuned into Fab Five Freddy
Vids I watched em all, emulating applause
I aint fuck with Superman, my super hero was Biggie Smalls
Rappin with my dawgs proudly, nobody was cold as me
Wishing somebodyd notice me
Dreams to get a deal cause the speech so sick
Now they talkin bout deals, and Im like keep that shit
Went through a lot of BS, lucky me
Times had me like this aint what its cracked up to be
Whats good for the goose is good for the gander
Its good for the blogs, its good for the slander
Nowadays, they wishing it was how it was before
But that was back in the days when I was young
Im not a kid anymore
The OGs that I listened to, Im friends with
When I was younger, a nigga never wouldve thinked this


[Verse 3: Jon Connor]
When I was younger nobody told us or showed us, crooked promoters
Flint, Michigan, General Motors held the weight on our shoulders
Until the shops started closing, felt like aint nobody want us
Our parents worked to the bone, now they aint got a bone to throw us
Now see how many kids is daydreaming about a label
Yep, this rap shit is a bitch but the only one that was faithful
Make it or die trying, at times it almost got fatal
My niggas was moving caine in the times they was barely able
Brothers killin brothers, shit goin on all around me
Genesee County would ground me and teachers would try to clown me
Cause I had heart that was bigger than my surroundings
I got flooded with hate, but no way I could let em drown me
Picture this one:
I used to go to sleep at night listening to It Was Written
Then fastforward, Nas is tellin me nigga, you gifted
If you fall, just shake it off
Now they sayin its my time, but time just caught up with my thoughts


When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
Oh it was beautiful, magical
