Apollo Brown & Che Noir – Follow The Wisdom Lyrics (feat. Skyzoo)

[Intro: Solomon Burke]
But the part of me that wants to change
Fights the part of me that tries

[Verse 1: Che Noir]
Yo, I’m trying to find [?] proof when I spit a jewel
Come on, y’all can’t compare me to what these niggas do
Selling drugs, that thing’s apparent just to get us fooled
Now the house so big, got a parachute to my living room
The money good, but it can’t be a problem
But quick to put it on your head
Bitch, I’m hands free with drama
We grew up with daddy issues ’cause we can’t see our fathers
And they waited too late to tell us about plan B’s and condoms
No respect for a nigga that do dirt with his mans
And when he gets caught
He fold and he tell what he learnt on the stand
Stood in the fire so long I ended up burning my hand
The fire would struggle, wrote a verse, now my word is like a fan
Now I’m on XXL covers
Niggas and bitches from colleges to the jails love us
Just a chick from the hood that’s doing Adele numbers
Hard to get your respect unless your skin is a pale color
Life wasn’t prepared for us

[Chorus: Solomon Burke and Scarface]
The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot

The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot

[Verse 2: Che Noir]
Before I start my day, I gotta talk to God
My brother had the streets at arms reach but still got the job
Pain on the streets, it ain’t worth seeing your daughters crying
I was that daughter so, you’ll never hear me glorifying it
On a high horse so I made me a chariot
My family was enslaved by the gospel
What’s a slave when you’re Harriet?
I never knew we was trapped, pain made me aware of it
‘Cause wisdom don’t come from age, it comes pain and experience
All that shit you was handed, I had to grind to have
Momma from the streets so she had to hide the pass
Momma always told me “Never follow in my foot steps”
But I still follow with a magnifying glass

Her and my step daddy [❓❓] ain’t get married in the church
He ain’t my blood pops but he’s been with me since birth
When he was sober he’d teach me and prepare me for the worse
‘Cause wisdom’s the type of wealth you can’t carry in a purse

[Chorus: Solomon Burke and Scarface]
The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot

The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot

[Verse 3: Skyzoo]
At first, a [❓❓] was made
The purchases got exchanged
You’re able to play both hands?
You through yourself a black parade
Well, the food is free and usually, you get to watch the day
[❓❓] watch your roof
So you’d just be given your [❓❓] today
It’s sorta like a modern day Macbeth
Where all the product make the steps
And the crown is handed down
It’s usually why they wave the cheque
It’s like one size fit all, for the [❓❓]
You call them hyenas parallels for a cell, they that close
But we was close enough to see it all
Hoffer ran a free for all
The engine on the two-forty-fives was like a breeding call
We all just want to part of the stories that’s recited
But never learnt enough
Where there’s a road and where the indictment at
I surf them off the curb after I surf them off the wind [❓❓]
It’s three-two, one off the stool for your influencials
What I’m meant to
There’s no way, nobody did it this vividly
And all I did was follow where the wisdom be
For real

[Chorus: Solomon Burke and Scarface]
The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot

The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow
You had to hustle
‘Cause that’s how we was raised on my block
And you stayed on your hop until you made you a knot
