No Hoodie (Nothin’ To Lose)

Dave East, Jay Electronica & 070 Phi

No Hoodie (Nothin’ To Lose) Lyrics

[Intro]
This shit real
Half you niggas don't know how it feel
I ain't had nowhere to go, nowhere to go (I promise)
If you know what I know, I ain't had nowhere to go, nowhere to go (Nobody to call)
If you know what I know, I ain't had nowhere to go (Nobody to answer)
If you know what I know

[Verse 1: Dave East]
If you know what I know, I ain't had nowhere to go
Broke and it's 'bout to get cold
I slept in my hoodie, woke up on the train
I wanna rob everybody I know
The thoughts of a menace, I ain't been good in a minute
I'm stuck in the hood, I'm just sittin'
Mental been slippin'
And I ain't get invited to not one Thanksgiving dinner
I'm scared of the winter, New York can get colder than cold
Ask God to just open my soul
Fuck the system, no I don't wanna vote
Not to mention I do not own a coat (Nah)
It's freezin' my nigga
I don't got cash and no credit, no Amex or Visa, my nigga
Slept in my Jeep with the heat on, my nigga
I'm starvin' for real ain't no secret, my nigga
I was just tryna get my hands on the purp'
My man just got hit, I seen that on a shirt
And I got a felony, it's gon' be hard to get work
Fuck the judge, I hope your honor get murked
Nobody helpin' me, nobody there for me
Think of my momma, know she said a prayer for me
Pedestrians lookin' so scared of me
Think I need therapy, please before somebody bury me
None of these bitches will marry me
Watch how you stare at me (Watch)
I ain't got nothin' to lose so you better move carefully
Think I need therapy, please before somebody bury me
None of these bitches will marry me (I'm prayin')
Watch how you stare at me (Watch)
I ain't got nothin' to lose so you better move carefully

[Chorus: 070 Phi & Dave East]
Ain't got no hoodie on
Nothin' to eat, only dope on the stove that I'm cookin' on
Might take a life if you lookin' wrong
I'm feelin' cold, yeah, ain't got no home, yeah
Young nigga ain't got no heart
I was just tryna get out of the trap with no jacket, ain't know where to start

[Verse 2: Jay Electronica]
I mastered the dark nights, Christian Bale
Tryna find home like Dorothy Gale
In the land of the free and the home of the brave, well that's just cap, we lost in Hell
Walk the streets with no face and name
Nothin' left to do but embrace the pain
Wanderin' through this wilderness, while my only companion is hate and shame
Like Johnny Blaze it's fuck the world, while I walk the line like Johnny Cash
Trapped between this light and dark like Johnny Depp was in Donnie Bras'
Reagan to Trump, ain't nothin' changed
Politics is for the politicians
Full meltdown in this meltin' pot
While I roam the block with no pot to piss in
Got me older I agree Jehovah
Surrounded by these snakes and cobras
Constantly, I'm gettin' high, 'cause this life is too harsh to face it sober
One nation, under God, allegedly indivisible
Welcome to the American dream, where the homeless live invisible

[Chorus: 070 Phi & Dave East]
Ain't got no hoodie on
Nothin' to eat, only dope on the stove that I'm cookin' on
Might take a life if you lookin' wrong
I'm feelin' cold, yeah, ain't go no home, yeah
Young nigga ain't got no heart
I was just tryna get out of this trap with no jacket, ain't know where to start
