Danny Brown – Y.B.P. Lyrics

Danny Brown Y.B.P. Lyrics (feat. Bruiser Wolf)

Let me change the channel with the plause
Wet clothes on the porch, we ain’t have a dryer
Spent the food stamps, wait to leave the store
Too many in the bed, had to sleep on the floor
Cause my cousin always be getting whipped in the morning
Every night can’t sleep, got me tossing and turning
Late night in the kitchen, here I’m always bustin
Got my ass beat, I ain’t even do nothing
Seen her crying in the kitchen and I don’t know why
Caught my aunt smoking crack and she got a black eye
Only go to church when someone dies
Kids raisin’ kids, all tryna be grown
Things never fix when we coming from broken homes

We was young, black and poor being raised in Detroit (raised in Detroit)
You can never learn what a n**** been taught
So we was young, black and poor being raised in Detroit (young, black and poor)
You can never learn what a n**** been taught

Detroit city – that’s where I live
Feels like “Poetic Justice” – you get killed at the drive-in
Who gon’ front you some work? Who gon’ front you some work?
We was fresh from the dirt, put you on a t-shirt
Wanna run like Barry, shoot like Zeke
But in the hood with a nine on me like Rodney Peete
Motor city, the Motown, the Fab Five
Police violence, that’s how Malice Green died
Coleman Young, Dennis Archer, Kilpatrick
In the alley doing backflips
Uh, these hoes ratchet, daddy’s absent
But, the kids see us doing
Ay, they wanna be us when they grown
But ask them why
My city show no love
It’s hard to fit in the murder mitten like OJ glove

We was young, black and poor being raised in Detroit (raised in Detroit)
You can never learn what a n**** been taught
So we was young, black and poor being raised in Detroit (young, black and poor)
You can never learn what a n**** been taught

Stuck in the middle between blade and diller
Surrounded ny killers, couldn’t see the bug picture
From my bird eye’s view we ain’t had no clue
We didn’t know what was true, had nothing to lose
“Where the heart is?” But where is the love?
Feeling lost in the world, they don’t care about us
Back to the world, we ain’t had no plan
Everything about the city made me who i am
You can make it, yeah, yeah, yeah, you know the rest
Everyday was like a test, if you failed it’s death
Or a trip to Wayne county, hope you don’t get sent to Jackson
Middleman taxing, to the story just a fraction
How the system made division but it don’t add up
Take away from the hood, never giving back to us
How the system made division but it don’t add up
Take away from the hood, never giving back to us

Young, black and poor
You can never know
So we was young, black and poor
You can never learn what a n**** been taught
So we was young, black and poor been raised in Detroit
You can never learn what a n**** been taught
