lyrics

So I guess we just two nigga’s
From different parts of the belly
Both came from the bottom
Therefore we know the bottom
Funny thing is, is
We always said we gon
Make it to the top together right
Always brothers

Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Like brothers for life
And that is never changing can’t See
Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Always Brothers

Since the streets of Detroit pot holes
And grandma’s pot roast
Literally my right hand
Nothing else I got close
Came up on them school yards
Playing pick em up mess em up
Always loved balling
Every game was fresh as fuck
I was more the bad seed
That never got caught
I had both parents that raised me
With no need to want
You had your mother
Last place you seen your dad was court
Never had it easy In school
Still passed every course
One of the most promising dudes I knew
And best friend, scholarship to college
On academics a blessed man
Now here we are years later
How did the roles change
You behind some bars
Trying to sit in gold chains
Don’t know the turning point
And frankly I ain’t here to judge
But he my brother and
A damn good nigga judge
We never knew what the future had in store for us
The Og’s always said they wanted more for us

Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Like brothers for life
And that is never changing can’t see
Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Always Brothers

Two sides of the coin
Both want it in different ways
One nigga he took the nine to five bi-weekly pay
One nigga he got his knuckles scraped
Fighting for serenity twenty four hour shifts
Moved packs out the infinity
Both loved the money
Both from the same street
Just different circumstances
Changed how they would think
While one he learned early
The other he learned later
The early learner forgot
That to learn you earn greater
The late learner survived cause he grew
And through the test of time
Learned to take his experience
And confess it in rhyme
Wishing he could go back
And save his main hitter
Its supposed to be the two
Off cali mary jane swishers
Its a shame how with time
And stress it wakes a beast
Whats even worst is when it happens
And ya faith leaps
You give up chasing
The million things you could of seen
You close your eyes only for death
Cause you gave up on dreams

Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Like brothers for life
And that is never changing can’t see
Two sides of a coin
The money’s the common goal
Just how they get it is different
Where did them times go
When they would walk
On the same streets
Always Brothers
