Dreamville – Down Bad Lyrics

Down Bad by Dreamville (ft. JID, Bas, J. Cole, EARTHGANG & Young Nudy)


(Young Nudy)
Tell Em Slime!
Yeah, I am the kind of the E.A.
Get this b---- screwed like the DJ
I am the s--- where we play
We got the chopper where we play
Come thru the city
We gon chop ya a-- up just like she sushi
AK47 Stick go stupid
Draw the money out
All the way, I’ma do it

(JID)
Lil Dirty Nappy Headed East Atlanta N----
Father said that I was a force
.44 Hank Aaron chrome,
Wanna make it home then get out the Porsche
Let a n---- cover Fader for it
I had to fade a n---- at the Fader Fort
Its tomato or tomato either way
They boy the greatest, Play it
I won’t say it no more
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
I had to tighten the f--- up
But I’m here for the crown
Board of Education vs. Brown
I was bored of education
Left the town
F--- a resume and f--- a cap n gown
F--- a background check back round
when I get the check, that’s now

(Hook – JID)
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
I had to tighten the f--- up
But I’m here for the crown crown (oh s---)
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
I had to tighten the f--- up
But I’m here for the crown crown

(Bas)
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
Picked up the pad
Pick up the slack
Pick of the litter
Don’t litter no bag
Bassy been picking up racks
Raps come in clearer than acuvue 2
When I’m back in the booth
got em hackin a shaq
cuz they lacking the juice
n----- dropping the ball they on shaqinafool
activis drool down the side of they face
we aint jackin it we aint dappin them fools
Get a napkin you dudes is embarrassing
who going crazy like us? no comparison
Dreamville like Marion Jones on the steroids
Y’all n----- slow as a heroin high
Y’all had a year, y’all had a year
y’all had a year but you let it go by
Yee!

(Cole)
Dreamville Head Honcho
B---- we came from nothing just like the big bang theory
That poverty stains kept the pain buried
And covered the shame with a dream
We would have fortune and fame
A mill in the bank, Chameleon paint
Turnt Cranberry
Now little Jermaine got the same story
As that boy outta St. Vincent-St. Mary
GOAT!
All hail, King Cole first of his name
Long may he reign
the boy got the throne but you know it aint a game
Ville n---- I was born in the same
Pressure cooker thats been known bust a lump of coal
and make a diamond – 2 6!
we enrolled in reaganomics, crew sick
we the golden state of rhyming, on God!

(Olu)
You could die today
So be hell to pay
I’m a living breathing scheming testimony
So don’t test me homie
Put that in ya homie
Put a foot up that a--
You a stepping stone
All my n----- aint getting no sleep
All of my n----- be chasing they dreams
Ohh I’m a force of nature
I can’t wait to date ya
I was having problems still I had to break through
Are my tattoos for show
They aint never for show
Might get tattoo’d on tuesday
Ya hoe get the dope
Spend my time making love to your thoughts
Don’t get in line baby, snort up yo mind
It’s a brand new season
I’m a righteous heathen
I take on the challenge and i leave it bleeding
I was down bad now I’m even steven
and I’m leaving leaving every other weekend

(Hook – JID)
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
I had to tighten the f--- up
But I’m here for the crown crown (oh s---)
I was just f----- up
I was just down down bad
I had to tighten the f--- up
But I’m here for the crown crown
