​Down So Long

This song is by Ya Boy and appears on the album Chapter 1: The Rise (2007).

(Feat. jin)

Ya boy:
Hey mama
Ya boy gettin' paid mama
Remember, it didn't used to be this way mama
But look, ya son drivin' escalade's mama
And after them shows ya son gettin' laid mama
I don't know what it is mayb the like me
But I've been suffering so long huh, the shit is frightening
People are star struck, I'm gettin' starbucks
But last year I couldn't afford starbucks
I went from honda cord to driving large trucks
Didn't really have a name I couldn't charge much
Nigga's overlookin the bay but that was our luck
Now I got sumthin to say and they on our nuts
I used to hustle on the block sellin 10 shots
And now I'm tradin my stocks at the rim shop
And the shit don't end no it's not stopping
I'm in new york with jin we got the set popping

(Chorus: ya boy (jin))
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (its time for me to come up) [x4]
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (if you with me get up)

Jin:
I speak for the MC's so you can understand him
1 - 2 battle's now they call me 100 grand jin
Accept the fact that you can't win
It's a done deal now that I linked up with ya boy in st quin
You know cats will talk we just here to get it poppin'
And let the bay watch like david hasselhoff
Then go global with it hit your part of town
But you can't reach the sky if you don't start from the ground
Can you blame my confidence?
In 4 years I rocked about 36 states and 5 continents
That's all on the strength of my flow
Only suckers who measure skills based on the land of there dough
I represent the graphieus ask my man kay
He'll tell you right there I'm only 1 hit away
But you never know, shit this could be the song
Its time to come up I've been down so long

(Chorus: ya boy (jin))
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (its time for me to come up) [x4]
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (if you with me get up)

Jin (ya boy):
So if you with me out there then please stand up
(And if you hustlin work then put your grands up)
But if you get locked and put on a stand stuck
(Remember snitchin ain't cool don't never give your man's up)
(And for my 9 to 5 workin I ain't mad at you)
Single baby mothers that gotta be the daddy too
(This is the anthem for the struggle in the grind)
Its jin
(Ya boy)
Its about time

(Chorus: ya boy (jin))
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (its time for me to come up) [x4]
Ay I've been down so long, so long, so long (if you with me get up)
