Akbar - Take It There Lyrics

  • Take it there
  • Take em there
  • [ VERSE 1 ]
  • I used to live Uptown, 2-1-9th Street
  • White Plains, everything was concrete
  • On my block up on the hill
  • Barnes Ave., yo, everything was chill

  • (The freaks y'all) Watch the kid with the gun out

  • Now years ago when I was 9
  • Pops said, "It's time to rise and shine"
  • He said, "New York City ain't the place to stay"
  • We packed the ride and left and headed for L.A.
  • Took us west straight through the country
  • See, California is the place to see
  • So daddy put us inside his Cadillac
  • We hit the West coast, I thought we'd never come back
  • Now I'm walking green grass, 3 years went past
  • Palm trees, ocean breeze, where the summers last
