kwon – they ask me lyrics – j

[j-kwon talkin’ over music]
ya know, right now, whatever you smoke,
right now cuz they ask me, and they ask me,
and they ask me, they ask me

[verse 1]
now they ask me
how you know so much at 17
what you mean?
you never seen a disfuctional teen
mama cared for me
papa wasnt their for me
older brother sold dope and murph blurr for me
times got hard i had to get harder
let me take that back i had to get smarter
16, i had me a daughter
hold up j-kwon lets get sh*t in order
baby mama thats a whole nother story
both too young both too h*rney
cell phone rung, but i didnt anwser
check my voice mail, my grandma got cancer
now she layin up in a old folks home
when it seamed like yesterday she was home
a month later stroke poped up
her brain cells gone
the last thing she said was let no one steer you wrong, i’m grown

[chorus]
they ask me, do i believe in god
so i ask them, did i defeat the odds
[2x]

[verse 2]
sh*t f*cked up but i can’t turn away now
sold dope around the town, self esteem way down
jessie made me tougher, he boxed me up
my mama put me in the system, she locked me up
now this around the time that we lived on haley
when i think about it i don’t know none of my family
except, for the immediate ones
thats why i run to the streets and the gennies hand guns
he don’t talk much so everybody wanna fight him
every school i went to n*body liked him
never could it be right
i’d try sometimes
so i chilled by myself and cry sometimes
and all i ask from gods to buy sometime
would i bring his name in it if i was lyin’
now look at what the f*ck i done, done
terry jones last son, this is a blessing
i’m grown

[chorus]

[bridge]
la, la, la, la, la, la, la
now they ask me how you know so much at 17
what you mean
you never seen a disfuctional teen
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, woah
times got har i had to get harder
let me take that back i had to get smarter

[chorus]

[j-kwon talkin’ over music]
you know, i mean it’s okay to cry right now,
if you are standing by your grandma, your ma, your brother, your sister
hug ’em, kiss ’em, tell ’em you love ’em
because i wish i had the chance to do it,
you know
