How Much We Grew

How Much We Grew Lyrics

Busta Rhymes

[Intro]
Yeah, this next joint right here
Is dedicated to all my n***as that I love
All the n***as that held it down with me through the whole sh*t
From the beginning of the fort, to the now current day of the fort
From the beginning and the birth of this whole sh*t
To the now success of this whole sh*t
And all my peoples that be holdin' it down for their peoples
Ridin with them through thick and thin, love y'all n***as
Peep it

[Chorus]
1, 2
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as
1, 2
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as
1, 2
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as
1, 2
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as

[Verse 1]
Now, this how the sh*t all started
Was like doctors of [?] I was being conceived kinda retarded
Like, and while my moms was conceiving this beautiful baby
Doctors was the this woman's stress out of this Jamaican lady
Pops beef and straight carrying on
Nobody realizing how the god was now being born
Ayo, yo, 1, 2
While they was wildin' and sh*t
They couldn't even find my pulse, sonogram on the frisk
So, they tried a natural birth, but had to stop production
Baby stuck all up in the womb, another malfunction
1, 2
And now the doctors discover
They had to cut this lady's gut, and c-section me out of my mother
Pop duke could only sit and ask why
Looked up in the sky and begged for mercy from the most high
C'mon, now, 1, 2
See now the day would feel blessed
Watching the birth of a precious baby life manifest
See how that bugged me out

[Chorus]
1, 2 (That sh*t, that type sh*t be buggin me out 'cause)
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (Y'know n***as, n***a look back)
1, 2 (To them days when you know sh*t is kinda ill like y'knawmean?)
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as (n***a, n***as like fall out, y'knawmean?)
1, 2
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (Motherf**kers is, n***as live long enough to look back and sh*t and)
1, 2
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as (Laugh and sh*t, y'knawmean?)

[Verse 2]
Young and learnin' sh*t that started is thick
Started inquiring a lot, started using my d**k
Like I knew it all but I wasn't really knowin' and sh*t
Buggin when my pubic hairs started growin' and sh*t
Now hold up, a young n***a now a couple years pass
Searchin desperate to experience my first piece of ass
Now, gettin' into mischief and caught my first arrest
Started smoking weed and started totin' on them cigarettes
Eyes bloodshot like I was starin' at a highbeam
n***a only twelve so why he lookin' like he nineteen?
1, 2
The fast life baby, young with an old soul
From the past life baby
A young n***a wanted things and wanted money quick
Ambitious on the Amtrak, with a quarter brick
My n***a, 1, 2
It got hot in the streets
My n***a campaign the cops who started walkin' the beat, my n***a
Trouble causin' too much problems just me and my brother
Made mommy a grandma and shacked up with my babymother
Now it a seed, I was always ready to clap sh*t
Strugglin', so then I start f**kin 'round with this rap sh*t
Moved to Long Island and got up with a few n***as
Believin we could show the world we was the Leaders Of the New n***as
A crew of n***as that was hot like an infirmary
Blazin' 'til they started actin' like b*t*hes internally
So now, Flipmode is how we own it fo' sho
Tried to f**k with n***as but I couldn't do it no more
Fo rilla, 1, 2
And then I got with some n***as
Always wit it to multiply the gross and double the figgas
And then I, hit with bombs and hold a stack in my palms
Whippin' Bentleys, floss icy sh*t and take care of moms
Give the local little old man a job as my chaeuffeur
Hold it down for all my n***as til the movement is over
It's kinda beautiful

[Chorus]
1, 2 (Yeah, y'knawmean?)
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (How we have acquired so much)
1, 2 (Where we can look back and, and actually laugh and lavish)
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as (In the, in the, in the moment)
1, 2 (As we prime in life)
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (Look at how we, we struggled all this way and went through the bullsh*t)
1, 2 (Motherf**kin', little obstacles)
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as (Situations they try to set up for n***as to f**kin' fall off)
1, 2 (And lose they hard earned sh*t, y'knowmean?)
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (I holds it down for my n***as though)
1, 2 (Give my last to my n***as)
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as (All the n***as that was wit me through the whole sh*t)
1, 2 (Love y'all n***as, word)
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as (Love y'all n***as, word)
1, 2 (My Flipmode n***as, man)
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as
1, 2
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as
1, 2
All the things I do, you know I will hold my flags for you my n***as
1, 2
Every time I sit and take a look at how we grew so much my n***as, n***as, n***as
