[Verse 1]
If my heart stop pumping tomorrow don’t feel no sorrow
Cuz life is hard mentally and everything is meant to be

Sometimes I ask myself If I was gone who will remember me?
It's hard to tell oh-well sit back and sip this Hennessey
Now lately it's been hard to tell my friends part from my enemies
Cuz plenty niggas show me love but in their hearts they envy me

Why? I'm just a nigga from around the way
Told my momma I'll make it happen and I found a way
Pour out some liquor for my niggas at the crossroads
And may the Lord give guidance to the lost souls

I know that deep inside these niggas know it's more to life
Then mackin hoes and stacking dough

Man I'm sort of like a nigga who done seen greener grass
So when they think they ballin like The Dream Team
My nigga I done seen meaner cash

And I'm trynna get it, follow me nigga I'm on a prowl
Headed to the top! You watching me nigga? Then Hold It Down

[Hook]
Hold it down, if you need to holla at me
Don’t hesitate to call it ain't a problem
I can be there I’d ride for you, lie for you
I know you’d do the same, I will die for u
So hold it down, when the times is hard, I’ll be around
So hold me down and it don’t matter how far I’ll be around
Yea, I'll hold you down


[Verse 2]
You were my nigga from the younger days, we grew up
I went to school you went the other way
But still my brother man,
I'm sitting, reminiscing on
All of them bitches we were tripping over, kissing on
Or at the skating rink we trying to bag some new hoes
And If I need gear, you let me hold ya new clothes and vice-a-versa man
But now that life is worster man a nigga slow caking
I'm broke trynna chase a dream, you just got probation and I'm stressed
Your little sister pregnant what’s next?
Oh shit my momma doing drugs, at times it's hard to feel blessed

In this madness I holla at my nigga in the sadness
Remember when ya momma tried to beat you with that bat shit?
Remember your chick Nina man that ass was the fattest
Remember my crush on Sabrina? yo, she still the baddest!

I'm just glad that I can holla at you, it's been a while
And til the next time I hear from you, ay, hold it down!


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
And these are tough times baby but we’ll make it through
You know I'm headed for the top I swear I'm taking you
Just hold a nigga down through this bad weather

The rain falling ain't balling but I have better
A women with an ass and a strong mind
, it's been a long time
Sometimes you on your bullshit, sometimes I'm on mine

Will I have a hard time to stay committed?
Or do I only want your voice moaning when I hit it?

Man only God knows
I know deep in your heart you don’t want me to be no star though
Cuz groupies out there every show you scared I'm fucking every ho

And girl I ain't gon lie and say I won't cuz shit you never know
But may the Lord give me strength, I love you more than anything
The future mother of my kids, the love is real and if we ever part God forbid
I love you still so when I'm on the road don’t trip, you know im down for you

Keep it tight and don’t slip, and hold it down for me

[Hook]
