​h u n g e r . o n . h i l l s i d e Lyrics – J. Cole

(Alright now, alright now)
(God has a prayer for you)
Yeah

Shit gon’ get hard keep your head strong
If I quit now then I’m dead wrong
Fightin’ off this hunger for hours
Big stepper, nigga, don’t get stepped on
They money might fade, but respect don’t
Still gon’ be me when success gone
I don’t speak the language of cowards
I walk through the flame like I’m Teflon

I sucked up the pain and I kept goin’
Whole world know my name, bitch, my rep strong
We sold out in less than an hour
These words I still sang like I’m slept on
I send, so I can’t cast the next stone
Unless it’s baguettes ’round my neck bone
Inside of my frame lies a power
You can’t get this game from no TED Talk
I wanna know if they understand me
I put it all on A, ain’t no plan B
Hopin’ all this weight ain’t gon’ drown
Fucked around, got grey hairs already
Runnin’ up the stairs on a tower
Runnin’ up these M’s by the hour
If I drop a gem, money showers
When you get your taste they get sour

Shit gon’ get hard, keep your head strong (Head strong)
The money might fade, but respect don’t (The ultimate price is regret now)
Still gon’ be me when success gone (Still gon’ be me)
Big stepper, nigga, don’t get stepped on (Ah)

Wait on my turn like grains that’s sittin’ inside the hour glass
Mainly concern back in the day how long I would last
Make a few thousand dollars, stack with every hour pass
I catch you playin’ inside my lane and I’ma foul your ass
Put whole gang on top of my back, don’t need no chiropract
They callin’ me [?] I got my power back
Ain’t fuckin’ around beefin’ with me gon’ get you high like that
Niggas can’t see me 101, that’s word to [?]
You hit them weights, congratulations ’cause you built somethin’
You takin’ a lot of boxin’ lessons but you still pussy
I still see right through you niggas just like 2Pac hologram
Ain’t doin’ Coachella, bookin’ me gon’ be a lot of M’s
I’m feeling myself, I’m building my wealth up ’til it’s tirin’
I put my tongue all in my bitch, she get to hollerin’
I ain’t doin’ no dirt no more, I stopped creepin’ six years ago
Fun fuckin’ them hoes until you realize that you is the hoe

Shit gon’ get hard keep your head strong
If I quit now then I’m dead wrong
Fightin’ off this hunger for hours
They money might fade, but respect don’t
Still gon’ be me when success gone
Big stepper, nigga, don’t get stepped on
I don’t speak the language of cowards
I walk through the flame like I’m Teflon

Can’t be afraid of sunlight
Spotlights when it close
All the pain you hold
Makes you worth your weight in gold
Can’t be afraid of sunlight
Spotlights when it close
All the pain you hold
Makes you worth your weight in gold
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
