Jeezy – Modern Day Lyrics

Modern Day Lyrics – Jeezy

Being black nigga is just like a modern day crime
Modern, modern day crime

They say I fell off, I bounced back
I got it in me
Hustle fully automatic, dawg, don’t do no semi
Seven day grind theory, dawg hustle-viili
That’s why I got that thug motivation ‘cross my belly
You confusing me with them, dawg, must be a mix up
Lots to celebrate, yeah, pour me up a big cup
Nigga, I ain’t dead, I ain’t in the penitentiary
All the shit I did, yeah, I coulda did a century
Nigga, I was plotting on this in elementary
Third period holding my vision pockets empty
Please don’t tell me I can’t do it, that would tempt me
What you know about adversity? I tell ’em plenty

All these chains on, feel like a modern day slave
Ten year sentence, that’s a modern day grave
Real estate nigga, that’s a modern day flex
Seven figure nigga, that’s a modern day check
Self made nigga, that’s a modern day grind
Being black, nigga, that’s a modern day crime
If he got a badge that’s an modern day opp
Motivation ‘cross my belly like a modern day Pac

A soldier dies one time, coward dies a million
Came back reincarnated, what a feeling
Forever I’m immortal, naw, you can’t kill my spirit
Why they always hating on your name, ’cause they fear it
Gave them all of me like John, I’m a legend
Word to Bush drug war, nigga, I’m a veteran
Post dramatic stress from the pain, I need some morphine
Cash rules everything around me, need some more cream
If I die tonight, wonder if heaven got a ghetto
Me and my girlfriend on brown liquor getting mellow
Sipping brown, blowing green, yeah that thug passion
Y’all thought that I was done done, that’s all a thug asking

All these chains on, feel like a modern day slave
Ten year sentence, that’s a modern day grave
Real estate nigga, that’s a modern day flex
Seven figure nigga, that’s a modern day check
Self made nigga, that’s a modern day grind
Being black, nigga, that’s a modern day crime
If he got a badge that’s an modern day opp
Motivation ‘cross my belly like a modern day Pac

All these chains on, feel like a modern day slave
Like a modern day slave
Being black, nigga, is like a modern day crime
Modern, modern day crime
Self made nigga, that’s a modern day grind
Modern day grind
Being black, nigga, is like a modern day crime

I’m like a modern day Pac
