This song is by Danny Brown and appears on the album XXX (2011).

I was born one day before Saint Pat
I guess a nigga miss luck just like that
Henry Ford, not even one mile from Motown
Explains all the soul that you hear in my sound
A ten minute ride to Linwood, I begun
My mama first son, look what I just become
A weed head with words more potent than what I'm smoking
This ain't no Reggie caught the plane ride from Oakland
I used to play with pistols in crack houses
Skipping school just to fuck bitches on dirty couches, abandoned houses
Find one with the lights on it
Landlord came pulled the hook, now it's locks on it
Money I'm plotting on it I put the block on it
I'm gonna get it, four deep, no shocks on it
We sit low, rep the D 'cause it's all I know
And my name rings bells in any hood you go

You're from the Eastside? (Eastside, Eastside)
You're from the Westside? (Westide, Westside)
You're from the North End? (North End, North End)
Is you from Southwest? (Southwest, Southwest)
You're from the Eastside? (Eastside, Eastside)
You're from the Westside? (Westide, Westside)
You're from the North End? (North End, North End)
Is you from Southwest? (Southwest, Southwest)

Around first grade, we move to the East Side
Was like throwing rocks at a beehive
A lot of niggas gone over something unimportant
That it ain't worth mentioning because it's unfortunate
Like stick a fork in it, where's the enforcement?
Walking off of Gratiot just to sit on niggas porches
Passing round forties, brown paper bags
Rolling up a swisher while this rat freak a black
It ain't about nothing, but let me hold something
Ate a lunchable for dinner, nigga I ain't fronting
Caught the bus to Eastland, just to walk around it
Ain't buy nothing nigga, just walked around it
Looked at some hoes, I ain't even holler
'Cause I'm broke as fuck and they is all about a dollar
I'm living in the city where the weak get swallowed
Belly of the beast, we don't care about tomorrow
I'm living in the city where the weak get swallowed
Belly of the beast, we don't care about tomorrow

So dog, you're from the Eastside? (Eastside, Eastside)
You're from the Westside? (Westide, Westside)
You're from the North End? (North End, North End)
Is you from Southwest? (Southwest, Southwest)
You're from the Eastside? (Eastside, Eastside)
You're from the Westside? (Westide, Westside)
You're from the North End? (North End, North End)
Is you from Southwest? (Southwest, Southwest)
