Hustla Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Let me tell you what priceless is, some advice to give
A sacrifice is what I made for the wife and kids
They say life's a bitch, but it's one life to live
I want my baby where that cake and the icing is

Out of them crisis-es, off of them vices-es
They see what we do and grow up in all likenesses
Really I don't wanna see 'em having to fight for this
Story of the family biz, I'ma rewrite the script

Daughter of a hip-hopper, hustla like her grand papa
Her destiny done been determined so you can't stop her
From being independent, earning paper and proper
More like a lawyer or a doctor, not a man watcher

That's where your man got ya, it's a big world out, yeah
I'm tryna make a black diamond or a pearl out, yeah
And hit the people to the way the world twirl out, yeah
And when I thank heaven for my little girl

Please let her be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
Hope my baby girl grows up to be a hustla
Let her be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
If not, then you're only a customer

Please let him be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
Hope my baby boy grows up to be a hustla
Let him be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
If not, then you're only a customer

Sugar Slim, I'm slicker than a squid, nigga no kids
No baby momma, Sugar freed from the drama
Sugar be where he wanna, no sweat like a sonnet
No judge, your honor can't tell me how to raise mine

Figure that in due time, if and when I do find
True love, wooed up, maybe you can blue-line
Ooh I'm, caught up in the moment for the meantime
G I'm, all about the green like tree pines

See I'm, tryna get the scratch like a feline
Hoping that my seed don't know the struggle like me, I'm
Hustling to make a buck, make a buck and fuck it up
Fuck it up and suck it up, then go and make another buck

Get the money, get the money, that's what I know
I'm hoping that my seeds know a little more than I know
I know, I know but baby this what I know
If we ever settle down, well, baby, this what I hope

Please let her be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
Hope my baby girl grows up to be a hustla
Let her be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
If not, then you're only a customer

Please let him be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
Hope my baby boy grows up to be a hustla
Let him be a hustla, baby, be a hustla
If not, then you're only a customer
