I Like These Odds Lyrics


I Like These Odds Lyrics


Intro (Hustle)

You gotta know what you want to do
You gotta dedicate yourself to it
You gotta wake up thinking about it
Go to work thinking about it
Go to bed thinking about it
You gotta dream about it

Verse 1 (Hustle)
I put my life on this - Hand to God
Other hand on my chest - I like these odds
I don’t play by the rules - No one does
I butter both sides of my toast, lil punk, just because

PreChorus 1 (Kill)
You chase the golden arrow
And watch the archer's mark up in the sky
Don't think these simple favors
Will let you back track straight to simple times

Break (Hustle)
You gotta know like you know gravity
That this is what's gonna happen in your life
First, it's a dream - Then you take action
And then you dominate

Chorus (Kill)
Hard up times, hard up money
Watch your smile, ain’t a damn thing funny, boy
Not a damn thing funny, boy
Cut my teeth throwing rocks in the street
You might know my name, but you don't know me, boy
No you don't know these boys

Verse 2 (Hustle)
Promise I'll never quit - Never say "die"
Never let my heart see better than my eyes
Put my feet on the edge - Thousand foot drop
That's how it feels when your looking down from the top

PreChorus 2 (Kill)
Last words don't turn men to
Hell-fighting, blood-thirsty demons overnight
It takes a generation of
Square-jawed hammerheads to change these city lights

Break 2 (Hustle)
I'm not saying it's easy - You gotta work for this
You gotta be persistent - You gotta be dedicated
But why shouldn't it be that way...
If your life's gonna be better than everyone else's

Chorus (Kill)

Rap (Hustle)
No more time, no more chips, everybody place your bets
Chicken dinner, no regrets
Mama said, "he did the best he could"
The opposite of what he should be
Grab my girl, call the lawyer
Uncle Hustle got something for ya
No one cares, it's all the same
I do this for the love of the game
I'm not Drake, fuck the fame
I keep my money, you can make it rain
And we all take risks, that's my crew
Nobody tells us what to do, we made this happen
Never through, we're gone

Chorus (Kill)

Outro (Hustle)
I put my life on this - Hand to God
Other hand on my chest - I like these odds
I like these odds

Smoking Gun Lyrics


Smoking Gun Lyrics


Verse 1 (Hustle)
This is my single - My single thought
My single promise - And if I'm being honest
It's this simple knowledge
That keeps my mission climbing
I didn't go to school, I went to street college
I became a fucking man, and now I'm paying homage
To my alma mater, and my grandmamma
Cuz my pride & honor kept my head above the fucking water
And some people saying, "why bother?"
Cuz their fucking dream died?
Why shouldn’t mine live?
Never been a kid, always on some grown shit
Fuck it, I only listen to my own shit
My mission all day, my way
I own this

Break 1 (Hustle)
They told me it was a pipe dream
And I was like, Fuck you

Chorus (Kill) 2x
I won't be a target
If you want a war than start it
I'm a smoking gun
I'm a smoking gun

Verse 2 (Hustle)
I'm Charley Hustle, getting my Pete fucking Rose on
I never trip, never slip, never go wrong
I run...
Til I can't catch my breath
And my legs can’t stand up
And my hearts close to death
Yes!
I push passion out the speakers
Cuz the truth is you haters hate believers
So fuck 'em, I'm gonna take what's mine
Move like a king, no regrets tonight, alright?

B Section (Kill)
I believe regret is the ghost that haunts
Failure is the angel that guides you home

Break 2 (Hustle)
So what if people don't believe in you
It's not their job to believe in you
Fuck outta here

Chrous (Kill) 2x

Break 3 (Kill)
I been doin' this shit for ten years
From the day I turned twenty
Now my hair's falling out, and I got wrinkles in my face
And all my clothes stick and barely fit
But I woke up this morning, and barrowed a car to drive to New York City
Because I got friends and relatives droppin' dead every spring and fall
And I know one day I'm gonna be takin' the same trip
And if I didn't leave you something to remember me by
I woulda just gone away like so many leaves down the river
But I didn't!

Chorus (Kill) 4x

No More Favors Lyric Banner.jpg

No More Favors Lyrics


No More Favors Lyrics


Intro (Kill)
No more favors (3x)

Verse 1 (Hustle)
I can't see the light in me
They put it on a chain
And told me that it's right there
Speakin' for the life of me
They lied to me
You can never hold the fire that's inside of me (x3)

PreChorus (Kill)
I'm gonna call off the parade to save ya
Unless you wish to meet your maker
When I start yellin' you can feel the danger

Chorus (Kill)
No more favors (x3)

Verse 2 (Hustle)
I believe in honesty
So, honestly
Your simple problems never bother me
Puttin' in this overtime - I'm about my worth
Watchin' my words, never waste a breath on Earth (x3)

PreChorus (Kill)

Chorus (Kill)

Break (Hustle)
You see all these people out there
With their hands out asking for favors
Just get out there and put the work in
Make your own money, man
Raise your own kids 

Rap (Hustle)
Shout out to the crew that used to hang out on Pennsylvania & Wheelin
Listen to my six-track beats on repeat and tell me they feelin' it
And maybe they lied, maybe they didn't want to hurt a kid's feelin's
But what they did was light a fire, cuz now I feel like I'm the illest
A motley bunch who never had much - Sex, drugs and pain
Seven old-heads kept me clean, pushin' me to change
Now I'm eighteen and I been ready, time to get the fuck out
So I took all this confidence and left my hometown
Don't know what they're doing, don't know where they live
But if they can hear me I'm still grateful for everything they did
They believed

Background (Kill)
No more favors (repeated)

PreChorus (Kill)

Unbreakable Lyrics


Unbreakable Lyrics


Verse 1 (Hustle)
I know my work, I now the risk
A sledge hammer's job is to break what it hits
I have my words, both my fists
All my blood, I bleed for this
I bleed for this
I bleed for this

PreChorus (Kill)
It's only a matter of time until I'm covered with gold
But I know, it's uphill for now
And I'll live the lean times in stride with the mean times
I'll stumble and I'll fall, but I won't stay down

Chorus (Kill)
Cuz I'm unbreakable
I'm holding on
What's gone is gone
I might bend, but I won't break
Cuz I'm unbreakable

Verse 2 (Hustle)
Luck won't change what I do for you
The well runs dry, and I'll dig it new
I keep my hands strong so I can be soft to you
All my life, I live for

PreChorus (Kill)
It's only a matter of time until I'm covered with gold
But I know, it's uphill for now

Chorus (Kill)

Bridge (Kill) 2x
I go like the world is watching
And everybody's judging me
But the one thing I tell myself to get through
Is nobody does it like me

Chorus (Kill)

Never Gonna Stop Lyrics


Never Gonna Stop Lyrics


Intro (Kill) 4x
I'm never gonna stop

Verse 1 (Hustle)
If it's hard then I know it's workin'
These sleepless nights, I know they're worth it
Cuz I gt a dream, I got a purpose
I got a purpose, I got a purpose

PreChorus (Kill)
I can't behave, I got options
I went too far and I'm not done
One more time
One more time
One more time
I'm greedy and I'm never gonna stop

Chorus (Kill)
I'm never gonna stop
I'm never gonna stop
I'm never gonna stop

Verse 2 (Hustle)
If it's free it won't be worth it
And if it's easy I don't deserve it
I want it to last so I gotta earn it
I gotta earn it, I gotta earn it

PreChorus (Kill)

Young & Dangerous Lyrics


Young & Dangerous Lyrics


Intro (Hustle)
Ay...Ay...
I love this life
Ay...Ay...
I love this life

Verse 1 (Kill)
One of those days happened to me today
The mess was made, I spilled the paint all over your pavement
Can't tell me when the last bill was sent or where it went
It made 'em scream, it made 'em leave me alone

PreChorus (Kill)
I stretched my neck out looking for answers
I dodged a bullet cuz I'm a dancer
I asked to see him, whoever he is
But they told me that he's dangerous, young & famous

Chorus (Hustle) 2x
Nobody told me how
Nobody told me why
I had to do it my own way
But that's what I love about life

Verse 2 (Hustle)
I grew up on both sides of the train tracks
You could flip a coin, that's where I 'm raised at
Lay my thoughts down and then I play it back
I got the gift from God and then I gave it back
If I don't have nothin' you can never take that
Derelicts takin' aim, but what they aimin' at?
The target on my back?  These biddies on my lap?
I'm hater-proof hustle all day, where I'm at that's a fact

Chorus (Hustle) 

Break (Hustle)
Young & Famous (repeated)

PreChorus (Kill)

Chorus (Hustle)

Outro (Hustle) (repeated)
Ay...Ay...
I love this life
