Jackboy – Promised Land lyrics

We ain’t tryna lose our life
To no crooked cop
He was a b**** in high school
How you let him call the shot
‘Posed to be here to protect
We’re treated like we opp
So don’t expect a n**ga to freeze
When you tell a n**ga to stop

I’m important in my hood
Just like Martin Luther King
Couple n**gas hatin’ on me
Two tryna kill me ’cause of my dreams
Got the type of money create jealousy
So I still gotta watch the team
Clutchin’ on f**kin’ felony
I’ma leave ’em on the scene

I, I cannot trust nobody now
I don’t give a f**k if you the police
At this point I might gun you down
At this point it ain’t no peace
F**k it gon’ bring your hammers out

Black lives don’t f**kin’ matter
They killin’ n**gas on cameras now
How the f**k I’m from the projects
And you still tryna tear me down
I’m protected by my gun
I never needed y’all around me

Everytime they try to talk to me
I never made a sound
Time come with thuggin’
Ain’t tryna look for no easy way out
Time come with thuggin’
Just one of them rules you gotta know
When you out here hustlin’
My bank account doin’ the most
But I came from nothin’
I remember I ain’t have a dime
Now I spend that s**t up in Dior
Like every f**kin’ time

We ain’t tryna lose our life
To no crooked cop
He was a b**сh in high school
How you let him call the shot
‘Posed to be here to protect
We’re treated like we opp
So don’t expect a n**ga to freeze
When you tell a n**ga to stop

I’m important in my hood
Just like Martin Luther King
Couple n**gas hatin’ on me
Two tryna kill me ’cause of my dreams
Got the type of money create jealousy
So I still gotta watch the team
Clutchin’ on f**kin’ felony
I’ma leave ’em on the scene
