Track Name: Hustle
All night, early in the morning
For life, keep the money flowing
Stay on the grind, only thing on my mind
24-7 baby, even on the side

Hit me on my line, get me when i'm live
See me when i'm driving, throw up that peace sign
Haters on their job, the people on the watch
They see that boy on fire, this type of grind don't stop

Look this the rundown hustle til sun down then it's over time
I like giving people a reason to look up and down when I come around
Its about to go down jealous foes of mine go around threaten to gun us down 
They don't know about mine but they can find me and mine we don't fudge around
I'm a business man not up for drama
Just numbers and dollars you itching to get at me 
Better be money you talking about
And a lot of it otherwise just get at me
Man I be drowning out hate with the speakers, bumping
Vybing and ride with the kickers, jumping
Stopping and waiting for nothing, come on
Hustling until i'm rich 

Hit me on my line, get me when i'm live
See me when i'm driving, throw up that peace sign
Haters on they job, them people on the watch
They see that boy on fire, this type of grind don't stop

Money on my mine and i'mma get it what you figure
Wit a little bit of money in the pocket you can chill
And get a little bit tomorrow wait a minute now we get it get it get it 
Gotta put it in da bag wit a tag and amount of cash
Then stash then i'mma act like nothing ain't even happen
People watching i'm just looking at em
Look let me tell ya something
I got an entrepreneurial spirit and here go the lyrical man i'm imperial
Got yo superiors feeling inferior put it in gear now they spinning the steering wheel
Cuz breaking that bread with a real one puts fear in ya whenever i'm in your area 
To hell with you if you ain't hustle to come with the money or nothing
For real i ain't hearing you but if you

Hit me on my line, get me when i'm live
See me when i'm driving, throw up that peace sign
Haters on they job, them people on the watch
They see that boy on fire, this type of grind don't stop

24-7 that hustle a part of life, you don't work, then you don't eat
You don't grind, then you don't sleep, and money don't grow on no tree 
And for the life of me I still don't see, how some of yall like to ride on E
Hustling precious like fuel for cars and the need for gas ain't never gone seize 
Like when we getting it, shipping it, flipping it, moving it thru and as soon as it touch down 
Distribute it when it get settled in checking the profit its pound for pound
Money in my pocket i'm watching and plotting on copping a spot with a lot in town
And until they release the cars that fly, ill see yall fellas around

Hit me on my line, get me when i'm live
See me when i'm driving, throw up that peace sign
Haters on they job, them people on the watch
They see that boy on fire, this type of grind don't stop
Track Name: Tell it to the Mic
I just, gotta feeling in my mind...
It's killing me inside...
Tell it to the mic

Got a feeling in my mind, its killing me inside 
I got to let it out, i'ma tell it to the mic
Through the struggle I fight, so I can live the life
Got this money my mind, i'ma tell it to the mic 
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic

When i'm on the mic I feel like I hit the lotto
Cuz it sound like money going around like a bottle
Everything paid, the crib, the car note
Cuz I do it to the fullest thats my number 2 motto 
After love big and aim high. I live big but fear God
Stand tall got a straight shot with a narrow view but I fear not
Don't let nothing come in between me, and my goals
Right now this money on my mine turn me up on the headphones
I'ma put in work, on the beat, in the office, on the street 
In the whip, on the stage, on the strip, or at the peak 
I'ma speak, if i'm hungry, i'ma eat, best believe
And i'ma tell it to the mic cuz its best for the stress relief and i gotta feeling in my mind

Got a feeling in my mind, its killing me inside 
I got to let it out, i'ma tell it to the mic
Through the struggle i fight, so I can live the life
Got this money my mind, i'ma tell it to the mic 
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic

Been some things on my mind every day every night
Got this feeling deep inside, telling me to write
Cancel all my plans schedule a flight
Book the studio cuz dam i'm about to tell it to the mic
Looking at this microphone, my mind, racing along
30 plus years going in a 4 minute song
Got get it off my chest, ain't no rest til its gone
48 hour sessions paid off cuz now i'm on and its
And its been a long time, cant say i did it on my own
But i'm a catalyst within a movement 50 cities strong
With a goal to grow but first I got battles to move along 
Into victories we gone celebrate soon as we make it home i gotta feeling in my mind

Got a feeling in my mind, its killing me inside 
I got to let it out, i'ma tell it to the mic
Through the struggle i fight, so I can live the life
Got this money my mind, i'ma tell it to the mic 
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic

Growth in my opinion is what life is all about
Any setbacks that we go thru give us strength to lift us out
We grind for the peace of mind, wanna stand out so we shine
And this feeling deep inside that I gotta let out is my drive
So i aim for the sky but keep my head out the clouds
When the music get me live I turn the bass up loud
Mind on wrecking mode been feeling it for a while
And the studios the place when I just gotta let it cuz out I gotta feeling in mind

Gotta feeling in my mind, i'ma tell it to the mic 
Its killing me inside, i'ma tell it to the mic  
I got to let it out, i'ma tell it to the mic 
I'ma tell it to the mic, i'ma tell it to the mic 
Through the struggle i fight, i'ma tell it to the mic 
So I can live the life, i'ma tell it to the mic 
Got this money my mind, i'ma tell it to da mic 
I'ma tell it to the mic, i'ma tell it to the mic  
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
I'ma tell it to the mic, I'ma tell it to the mic
Track Name: He A Problem
They be like, he a problem, he a problem, he a problem
And I admit it, i'm a problem, i know, i know, i'm a problem, i'm a problem,
Ha, Josh Morton Music, must be the G in me, must be the G in me
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
Look, I gather that i'm a problem, must be the D in me

First thing first right foot on left knee
Laid back hella chilling in that CEO seat
Whether dressed like a G or like a modern day king
And you see the bright light, oh you ain't dying that's me
With straight flames spitting heat with J.O. on the beat
When the sharks around ain't no other fish up in the sea
If ya don't know who I be, better ask your baby mama
She say that's D, and he ain't nothing but a problem
Silence, i'm not a goon or a goblin
Step into my office and meet the problem solver
Speaking on my name ain't smart if your speaking garbage
You never heard my name with a lame in the same song
Wit a clique like the A team dropping them bombs on them
High on a plane, stay rolling up tons of them
Smoke up in the air, they coughing up lungs on em
They don't like blowing with me cuz i'ma problem, a problem

He a problem, he a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
I'm a problem, i'm a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, yeeayeeah
Must Be the D in me, must be the D in me, yeeayeeah
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, yeeayeeah
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me, yup ever since I was born

Been a problem since birth, ever since I touched down
Detroit west side six mile Motown
Hit them with that Joe Louis make a hater lay it down
Its a Detroit thing, from the river to 8 mile 
Joy Road, yall remember we was causing so many problems at the school
And our mamas was calling while we was balling falling out of line appalling
But to all us we was flawless and lawless like ain't no problem
Just dip when they call the laws on us
Officers in the office came to monitor the progress
Cutting into them boys like how the hell yall manage all this
What don't kill us make us stronger and we taller
So its harder to startle me and my boys cuz we always flaunt the dog in us 
I ain't never running less we talking bout things
Ran streets ran gangs ran beef ran dames, yea
I'm a problem less ya talking bout money, money don't make the man no
But when the man make money he problem 

He a problem, he a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
I'm a problem, i'm a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, yeeayeeah
Must Be the D in me, must be the D in me, yeeayeeah
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, yeeayeeah
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me, yup yup yup, let's get it

Hustling in the D ain't the same as yall see
All them ran down buildings a meal ticket with fiends 
Hit up the corner store re-up on anything you need
It's no wonder why on the street, every night like Halloween
But i love my city yea I think I wanna be the
That billionaire that come and sweep the hole city off they feet
But til then i'm a problem and my city made me
I migrated in Texas but Detroit stayed in me
So everywhere i go ya see me, ya see D
You see a G wit a problem but watch how ya speak free
I got habits and lack trust, for rappers that act tough
If your not the average rapper then actually back it up
Your a problematic thug, always got to strap it up 
Be out there acting up til the goblins come snatch you up
Eat you boys alive spit you out hacking up
Really ain't no laughing matter but i still be cracking up cuz i'm a problem

He a problem, he a problem, he a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
Yeeayeeah, i'm a problem, i'm a problem
I'm a problem, i'm a problem, i'm a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me
I'm a problem,i'm a problem, i'm a problem
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, i'm a problem
Must Be the D in me, must be the D in me, i'm a problem
Must be the G in me, must be the G in me, i'm a problem
Must be the D in me, must be the D in me, i'm a problem

Must be the D in me, YeeaYeeah
Track Name: Real OGs
J-J-J-J.O
Yea, yea, yea, yea
O.G. love, uh huh, kind of make you move don't it? Ha.
Uh huh Uh huh
YeeaYeeah

Ride with the queen, XLR-V
Smoke wit the Gs, top quality
Chill wit the peeps, what yall wanna eat
Flex on the keys, flex on the beat

All day I kick it with my real O.Gs
All day I get it with my real O.Gs
All night I'm sipping with my real O.Gs
Spent all my life around Real O.Gs

2 stepping a little bit but I move like a G
Slow with the speed move quick when i need
Never underestimate a little nigga when ya see him
Cuz the bite much bigger coming up wit real Gs

The street don't give a dam about blue, red or pink
Any body can can get it if he slipping in the street
Purple is royalty black, white getting green
Brown in your town but ya better believe

Never judge a book by the cover you read
One in the hand, worth 2 in the street
Little real big with a badge and the heat
And on the other side the grass ain't so green

Slow ya row, think before ya speak
Stash the money, lose the heat,
If ya take the charge, warn the Gs
If you don't know shit ain't no need to speak flat out!

Ride with the queen, XLR-V
Smoke wit the Gs, top quality
Chill wit the peeps, what yall wanna eat
Flex on the keys, flex on the beat

All day I kick it with my real O.Gs
All day I get it with my real O.Gs
All night I'm sipping with my real O.Gs
Spent all my life around Real O.Gs

A man with a plan is a man with a need
Ask and receive but don't expect free
The game is to be sold not told, told my seed
God don't like pride. Just stay on ya feet

The harder you work the harder to please
The smarter the work, the less hard it be
Work ain't defined by 9 to 5 and sleep
Shit flexing on the beats is a J.O.B

I ride in the background not to be seen
But embrace the fame so the numbers increase
Put that virtual reality bullshit at ease
Make patience virtues a reality

If it sound too good question everything
The way to her heart, straight to the brain
Know yourself, keep the peace but
What the right hand knows, left hand don't see so I

Ride with the queen, XLR-V
Smoke wit the Gs, top quality
Chill wit the peeps, what yall wanna eat
Flex on the keys, flex on the beat

All day I kick it with my real O.Gs
All day I get it with my real O.Gs
All night I'm sipping with my real O.Gs
Spent all my life around Real O.Gs

Everything tit for tat, it's an ego spree
But the bigger man knows whats vanity
We became one when we put on them rings
Her mistakes are now mine to oversee

It all boils down to a lot of one thing
Do dirt get dirt but peep the scene
What goes around comes around you'll see
But what goes down comes in between

If I hate you then you'll hate me
Then we both gone see what the hate gone bring
Misery loves company, so does the sea
Teach em to fish so they all can eat

Many things are opposite of what yall think
A closed window a door of opportunity
No matter the means it all means one one thing
And everyone knows that's L. O. V. E so I

Ride with the queen, XLR-V
Smoke wit the Gs, top quality
Chill wit the peeps, what yall wanna eat
Flex on the keys, flex on the beat

All day I kick it with my real O.Gs
All day I get it with my real O.Gs
All night I'm sipping with my real O.Gs
Spent all my life around Real O.Gs
Track Name: Tough Love
West side Gs need love
East side Gs need love
South side Gs need love
North side Gs need love

East coast Gs need love
See we got a brotherhood
West coast Gs need love
And all we got is each other
Down south Gs need love
But we need you ladies
Gs up north need love
And baby, I need you to understand

See i'ma Detroit G, sure enough
I ain't never had a love that wasn't tough
But I ain't never been loved this much
So can you come and show a gangsta how to love

It was always tough love in the hood no courtesy in relationships
Thug love only went so far on some gangsta shit
Always been a rider, put in all I came wit
They favorite getaway driver hitting lanes like I cant miss it
Aiming to be the man the hood knew I was that guy
As the one they look up too I was quick to realize
So many my real Gs, aiming for the top
But a man without a back bone liable to be dropped
I grew into a G with a purpose that never die
Never to cry never to whine but never to fly
Til you came by my side like you ain't just a gangsta
You got all that potential and them chances, just take one
I fell in love, we did a lot, switch the grind, good provider
Did the job then I lost my top and I did you wrong but I dont know why
I was quick to move around if its about to be some problems 
But don't want to be without your love baby so tell me how

See i'ma Detroit G, sure enough
I ain't never had a love that wan't tough
But I ain't never been loved this much
So can you come and show a gangsta how to love

After we been good so many years I don't know why we started fighting
But I saw you put up with me and I'm just now realizing
Was only calming you down for my pleasure with all them flowers
Thinking your the one with problems so I'll be the one to solve them
I made your problem my problem I got it at least I tried to
But how do I go about if blaming became so powerful
How i'ma do what I do without me trying to scour you
I was seeking out problems and I see that I was wiling 
That was something I ain't proud of so what do I do about it 
Pride is out of the question so i'ma figure it out
Cuz I know that love is real we go harder when we feel it
Showing it be that deal when you know that it's for real
And we got it, let's do it, battles we may loose them
If not properly chosen but the war ain't over til we cruising
You showed me I can do it, showed me I can prove myself
Ain't nothing I can't do I'll never stop pushing for you

See i'm a Detroit G, sure enough
I ain't never had a love that wan't tough
But I ain't never been loved this much
So can you come and show a gangsta how to love

See i'm a Detroit G, sure enough
I ain't never had a love that wan't tough
But I ain't never been loved this much
So can you come and show a gangsta how to love

Matter of fact, ladies all my

West side Gs need love
East side Gs need love
South side Gs need love
Baby I just wanna know
North side Gs need love
Can you come and show a gangsta how to love

East coast Gs need love, love
West coast Gs need love, love
Down south Gs need love, love
Josh Morton Music
Gs up north need love, love
YeeaYeeah
