Artist/Band: Wale
Lyrics for Song: Bricks
Lyrics for Album: The Gifted [2013]



(Intro)

Turn a brick to a stone but you think we don't have a soul

As a kid need to grow, the powder's weight in gold



(Bridge)

Getting blowed

Thinkin I'm so glad that I can't rap 'cause I can't move no dough

But I do know a few niggas that did and a few niggas that still

And a few niggas that's through or a few niggas that's dead



(Verse)

So fuckin 9 to 5, they clockin and tryna to survive

Cop a brick and supply 'cause nobody offerin jobs

Bricks build, buildings build, houses build neighborhoods

Better ripped than turned into a baller or a Davis shirt

Understated to say it hurts, I was optimistic

Tryna see my gang and whippin plain English that I was flippin

This college went out of his dollar pension

'Cause after 4 or 5 you don't got to have a college ticket

Bounce



(Hook)

But them niggas tryna hold my head and work this out

Countin numbers up in my head tryna build this house

Mama told me if I made my bed then I gotta lay down

But I never seem to keep these words all up out my mouth



Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas talkin bout

Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas talkin bout

Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas thinkin bout

Many niggas on the scene, ain't gotta dream it now



(Bridge)

Tulio getting blowed

Thinkin I'm so glad that I can't rap 'cause I can't move no dough

But I do know a few niggas that did and a few niggas that still

And a few niggas that's through or a few niggas that's dead



(Verse)

Look, little niggas will shoot you, they got nothing to say

'Cause local celebrities only bout a brick away

If you still whip em he getting those from whippin yay

And you got no paper, you been so patient, come get some weight

Just think about it, come see your products

And you weekend shoppin, show people no people problem

I can see the problem, you nigga don't have no conscience

Can't shoot, can't blow but can rap

Young nigga don't have no option



Turn a brick to a stone tryna feed for my homie

From the powder to the power and the power turn to gold

Turning head with yo whip

Is it worth what you did?

A brick is a brick and a brick you can build

Turn a brick to a stone tryna feed for my homie

Trenches on the full, turn reefer to a homie

Turn the powder into power and the power to the homies

A brick with a brick to a brick you can throw

Build bricks

Bricks

Bricks

Bricks



(Verse)

Many years old, feds lookin for my moms

10 to 11 held my first gun

First time I held bricks I was getting construction

Tell me you puff a medical, gave him my introduction now

16, get them bricks for the 16

Course I'm rappin bitch but now wrappin bricks for 16

I was 17 ridin and then is all good

18 and 19 payin nothing over 20

And 1008 divided by 4 is 2-52

If you know what that mean you noticed it now

And if you don't learn how to divide nigga

I'm talkin bricks, no jump shots

I call it work, no punch clocks



(Hook)

But them niggas tryna hold my head and work this out

Countin numbers up in my head tryna build this house

Mama told me if I made my bed then I gotta lay down

But I never seem to keep these words all up out my mouth



(X2)

Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas talkin bout

Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas talkin bout

Bricks bricks – it's all them niggas thinkin bout

Many niggas on the scene, ain't gotta dream it now



Million to a stone, the stone to the sour

The show in the hood and you know that you could

The powder and the crack and the crack to the suns

Dollars in the bag and the glocks in the front,
