Lecrae

While there’s no sure route to carving out a significant presence in the music industry, there’s always something to be said for remaining true to one’s self. Since arriving on the scene with his 2004 debut Real Talk, Lecrae has been occupying two different yet not entirely opposing worlds: the sacred and the profane. Which is to say that his art, not unlike his life, has been as much about inspiring the streets, and about justice, freedom, and interrogating real-world issues, as it is about his personal journey of faith. His music has long served as a call to arms for those willing to sacrifice for a cause beyond themselves. Still, he won’t be boxed in to any genre or made to serve as a poster-child for any particular agenda. Following a host of celebrated … more »

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, sideways

They wanna see your boy Kevin wear (Down)
Hope the worst when they tell me go and break a leg
This music with or without me boy
Still gonna be intersecting circles like an Audi boy
(Sideways)
Feeling like I'm ballin' boy
Ricky James, can't let my heart harden boy
Don't need a side chick the main dish a problem boy
I be turning down girls like the volume boy
(Sideways)
Do what we wanna do
Truth and the fruit, who really wanna juice
Move with a humble few, these dudes who befuddle you
Derek Jeter boy, we cool being number 2
Dem sons of the Father
Beast all four quarters won't change for a dollar
I put it on my momma
I ain't got no worries like hakuna matata

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, sideways

The Lion King said D-I-E
Then brought us back to life like an E-M-T
No Biggie to me that you could do it B-I-G
Till you and God align like a D-M-V
You rappers are neon green
Yukon Denali wanna be G-MC's
But overdose on Christ see a G-OD
G-O-D that's what you see on me
Now turn up
They know when we pull up
Where they working them traps like a pull up
So we bring them trap and a full cup (full cup) of water that's livin'
They don't know what to do with us
Degree in theology raps for a livin'
Black man in first class that is reading the scriptures
I put my tray table up
Smile why they lookin' sideways?

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, sideways

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, side

Oh
I promise you, you better come tell 'em (Tell 'em)
I ain't the one, I never was, I never will be
Somebody better come get 'em
I wonder what got in they head
Wonder what got in they mind (Mind)
They got me mixed up, messed up
Click, hold on it's somebody on the line
(Hello, uh)
I ain't tryin' to build C-H-H
I'm in my own lane but they like he ain't safe
They rappin' in a bubble can't nobody see their face
I ain't worried 'bout the genre the street ain't safe
I know some people out there probably envy my space
But envy is empty, come see my face
Full of scars, full of pain
I don't see much grace
Street fighter Ryu catchin' heat all day
I'm good
And lately I've been hangin' in the hood
Everybody lookin' like what
You for the people, you pushin' back evil
Not just in the steeple, you out in the woods
Where the lions and the wolves at?
Still waters run deep, but my crew run deeper
We already died we ain't scared of the reaper
We are too alive we don't fear what you're speaking
Seeing sideways, eyesight crooked
You ain't never seen us cause you ain't lookin'
And if I say Jesus everybody start bookin'
Get out the kitchen when I'm cookin'
Pot sideways, whipping that whipping that bass
That's what they wanna hear us say
Until we all get caught selling twenty dollar rocks
And we're just another slave of the state
Seeing sideways!

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, sideways

Sideways, came in this thing sideways
Get turnt, get lit sideways
Haters looking at me sideways
Sideways, sideways
I ain't slept in like 9 days
Heard they be talking sideways
Leaning in this thing sideways, sideways
