The City

The City Lyrics

JAY-Z, Trey Songz, Dave East

[Intro: Dave East]
(Dougie on the beat)
Really ain't no love

[Verse 1: Dave East]
For meetings now, sh*t, we goin' to Tao (Tao)
My man called me, said he goin' to trial, he facing twenty years (God)
I would look at my pocket, wasn't a penny there (Nothin')
Just Heineken bottles, wasn't no Hennys near (Uh-uh)
I can look you in your eyes and tell you really scared (I know)
Sincerely yours, the sh*t I talk is so vivid (You see it)
Dirty project n***as with dreams of becoming billionaires (Uh)
Reporting live from my side, n***as is gettin'
All the product we had to break up, now every day I wake up
Somebody got a problem with Dave, uh
'Cause I'm livin' a little better, or pull up sittin' on leather
With some b*t*hes that's from 'round y'all way? Uh
Is it because I got my cake up?
Your wifey see me, I'm the reason y'all about to break up
All action, I don't say much
All my life, I just wanted to pop
Set up the business right in front of the spot
You either want it or not
Window shopping, I just wanted to shop
My feet hurt and I walked hundreds of blocks
I ain't said nothing to cops (Shh)
I ain't even have the key, somehow I opened the lock
Focused off Pac
Chillin', blowing smoke on a yacht

[Chorus: Trey Songz & Dave East]
Ain't no love (Ain't no love, my n***a), in the heart of the city (Real talk, where I come from)
Ain't no love in the heart of town, oh
Ain't no love (Uh), in the heart of the city (It's like they gettin' paid to hate)
Ain't no love (No love), in the heart of town (No love, ain't no, ain't no love)

[Verse 2: Dave East]
I remember Dipset broke up, that sh*t woke the Loc up (Woke me up)
I was copping two for fifteens just trying to smoke up (Uh)
The D's keep circling the block, they going doughnuts (Woop, woop)
Thinking about Maleek and Marcus, I gotta roll up
Now every night I go to sleep, pray to God they notice me
I'm vibing out to Floetry, just booked a hosting overseas (Overseas, we out)
They might pop that sh*t online, but they never approaching me
I'm hall of fame, n***a, like who coaching me?
Block was on fire, tell me who you know got as low as me?
Deliver like poetry, ain't gotta ask her to go with me
You wasn't in them cold December nights in the snow with me
We disrespect the opps openly, then go f**k they sister to Jodeci
Dreaming 'bout a spot we could hustle without no cops
Nobody came to rumble, we snuck it inside the spot
All they heard was shots, walked off in a pair of Prada socks
n***as be Jay Reed, you not a cop (You not a cop, pu**y)

[Chorus: Trey Songz & Dave East]
Ain't no love (Sucker-ass n***as), in the heart of the city (Really ain't no love)
Ain't no love (You can show n***as love, but), in the heart of town, oh (Nine times out of ten, that sh*t ain't gon' come back)
Ain't no love (Uh), in the heart of the city (Ain't no love, n***a)
Ain't no love in the heart of town (Karma, karma)
