The young star took in some retail therapy in New York City after his father, Will Smith, resigned from the Academy over slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars.

Jaden Smith is keeping his head up in the wake of his father, Will Smith, resigning from the Academy after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars over a joke about his wife — and Jaden’s mother —Jada Pinkett Smith. The young star, 23, was spotted enjoying some retail therapy in New York City with his new girlfriend Sab Zada. The couple was all smiles as they took in the Big Apple offerings, with Jaden rocking a paint-splattered jacket and Sab wearing a multi-colored coat to match her pink-hued hair.

The sweet outing comes as Will stepped down from the Academy shortly after it initiated a review of his behavior during Sunday’s Oscars. In a statement obtained by HollywoodLife, the actor said he “betrayed the trust of the Academy” and is “heartbroken” over his actions. “The list of those I have hurt is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home,” the statement reads. “I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of their opportunity to celebrate and be celebrated for their extraordinary work. I am heartbroken.”

On Monday, Will also offered an apology to Chris via Instagram, saying, “I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be.” He added, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive.” He also apologized to Venus and Serena Williams, after winning the Best Actor gong for portraying the family’s patriarch, Richard Williams in King Richard. He then concluded his message by stating that he is a “work in progress.”

The social media mea culpa came a day after Will apologized for his actions to his fellow nominees and the Academy during his Oscar acceptance speech, yet he didn’t mention Chris by name. Meanwhile, Chris — who is reportedly not pressing charges against Will at this time — has yet to make a statement on the incident.

Viewers at home were shocked when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock during the Oscars on March 27, and now, the actor’s son, Jaden, is revealing why the evening made him ‘cry’.

“And That’s How We Do It”, Jaden Smith tweeted on March 28, just moments after the 94th annual Academy Awards concluded. Those words were the first from Jaden, after viewers at home saw his dad, Will Smith, slap Chris Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about Jaden’s mom, Jada Pinkett-Smith, having a bald head.

And That’s How We Do It

— Jaden (@jaden) March 28, 2022

Jaden didn’t say what his message was in reference to, but fans immediately assumed he was reacting to the slap heard ’round the world. Many responded with pictures of Will slapping Chris, and others made jokes about celebrity reactions from the audience inside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

We must note, however, that it’s entirely possible Jaden’s message was more of a direct reaction to his dad’s emotional speech upon winning the award for Best Actor. Especially since Jaden’s tweet came after Will’s speech. And, the young actor followed up his initial tweet with a since-deleted one that said, ” My dad’s speech made me cry”. He also added a photo of himself looking sad with sunglasses on.

“Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family,” Will said of the role he played in King Richard, while accepting his award on stage. “In this time of my life, in this moment, I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world. I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people. I know to do what we do you got to be able to take abuse. You got to have people talk crazy about you. In this business you got to be able to have people disrespecting you. You gotta smile and pretend like that’s okay. I wanna be a vessel for love.”

“I want to apologize to the academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees,” Will went on, before adding, “Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father just like they said about Richard Williams. Love will make you do crazy things.”

Jaden Smith went shirtless to show off his progress since his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith staged an intervention over him being ‘too skinny.’

Jaden Smith, 23, is getting his health back on track and his efforts have definitely paid off. The “Ninety” rapper posted a shirtless selfie along with several other snaps on Monday, Feb. 28 to celebrate going on tour with Justin Bieber. He flexed for a shirtless mirror selfie as his Calvin Klein boxers peaked over his low-rise jeans. The actor put his abs on display as he wore a wild number of necklaces.

The other pics seemed to chronologize his process of getting ready to hit the road. “On The Road Again,” he captioned the pic referencing Justin Bieber’s “Justice” tour. He received plenty of love for his shirtless selfie. The “Ghost” singer even left a comment on the post jokingly calling Jaden “dad.”

He’s also celebrating gaining weight after his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith expressed concerns about him being too skinny. Fortunately, he has made great strides since then and revealed on the Red Table Talk in December 2021 that he has gained 10lbs. “I was able to work with the doctors and really get my vitamins and get my supplements and protein shakes,” the singer/actor explained. “That’s half of my diet. It’s like a password that I have to find to my body. I’m like, ten pounds heavier now, at this point. I feel like I’m keeping on my weight. I’m able to put on more muscle.”

Jada had explained on the same show two years ago that she and Will were concerned because their son was too skinny to the point where he had “dark circles” under his eyes. “Will and I had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein,” Jada explained on the show in September 2019. “So he was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was just depleted, he wasn’t getting the nutrients.”

The pop star gave his fans a thrill when he performed his signature dance moves on top of a plane at the San Diego kick off concert for the long-awaited tour.

While his fans have been anxiously awaiting seeing him in concert once again, Justin Bieber made sure not to disappoint them when he kicked off the “Justice World Tour” on Friday (Feb. 18) in San Diego. The 27-year-old global superstar pulled out all the stops for the long-awaited extravaganza that will span more than 90 dates in more than 20 countries. Case in point, Justin performed his signature dance moves on top of a gigantic airplane prop suspended from the ceiling high above the Pechanga Arena stage.

The “Never Say Never” singer’s San Diego appearance featured special guests Jaden Smith, Eddie Benjamin and ¿Téo?. The three musicians whipped the crowd into a frenzy with their own unique chart-topping hits, setting Justin up for an epic show. Not only will Justin and his A-list buddies be entertaining the crowd throughout the tour, but the artist plans on raising awareness for a variety of causes as well. Such issues include criminal justice reform, climate change and voter registration, Billboard reports.

According to an announcement, per Variety, Bieber’s goal is to “inspire millions of individual actions, help connect his fans to important causes, and provide participating groups with a new foundation of supporters, all while registering voters and raising awareness and funds for critical local and national justice efforts.”

Initially sidelined due to the pandemic, the “Justice World Tour” — named after Justin’s latest album “Justice” — marks the first time the singer has toured the world since 2017. The concerts will include some of Justin’s fan-favorite hits, as well as his most recent ones off the new album like “Anyone” and “Peaches.” Back in November, Justin announced the reconfigured dates and locations for the world tour, which will come to an end in March 2023 in Poland. “We’ve been working hard to create the best show we’ve ever done, and we can’t wait to share it with fans around the world. I’ll see you soon,” Justin said in a statement at the time.

Jaden Smith proudly supported his mom at the premiere of the highly anticipated ‘Matrix Resurrections’ where she reprises her role as Niobe.

Jada Pinkett Smith was a vision on the red carpet for the premiere of her latest film, The Matrix Resurrections as she posed for photos with son Jaden Smith, 23. The 50-year-old actress chose a bright red mini dress Giambattista Valli Haute Couture with a strapless cut and long, flowing tulle train. She paired the look with a pair of deep crimson opaque tights and matching shoes for a monochromatic effect, accessorizing with stiletto, PVC shoes, a bracelet and ring.

While Jaden was just a kid when his mom worked on the initial films, he was a big fan from day one. The 23-year-old made a surprise appearance on Jada’s show Red Table Talk last week where she interviewed her cast members Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, along with newcomer Priyanka Chopra. “We all love The Matrix…it’s so relevant right now. We’re going so deep into computers — this movie reminds you to remember there’s another side to computers, as well,” Jaden said on the show. His mom then reminded him he was only six-years-old when she took him to one of the films and he “sat through whole thing.”

Carrie-Anne then recalled “how much” Jaden “loved that movie.” As for Jaden, he recalled “spending time” with both Carrie-Anne and Keanu while Jada worked on set. “I think you guys are amazing, I’ll never forget that,” he said.

This is Jada’s third appearance in the The Wachowskis’ science fiction empire, where she originated the role of Niobe in sequels The Marix Revolutions and The Matrix Reloaded. A hovercraft captain, Niobe was a resistance fighter for Zion, an underground city with over 250,000 humans. In the latest film, the character has significantly aged — requiring Jada to undergo hours of prosthetic makeup each day before shooting.

“It was quite an experience, it took about five hours each day to have it put on, and then, to have to sit in it all day was something else. It’s just like, ‘Oh my goodness!’ But what I loved about it was that it gave me an opportunity to really immerse myself into another version of Niobe,” she said in an interview with Games Radar. “Not to give too much away, but a woman in that stage of her life, who is still in the position that she’s in, it’s pretty awesome, it’s pretty dope. You don’t see that a lot.” she added.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have a relationship that has stood the test of time. We’re taking a look back at the couple’s love story on their 23rd wedding anniversary!

Will Smith, 52, and Jada Pinkett Smith, 49, have proven time and again that love can last in Hollywood. The two have been together since the ’90s, and today, December 31, marks their 23rd wedding anniversary. On any given red carpet, they nearly always turn heads. But it’s taken years of love, trust and hard work for the two to maintain their bond while standing in the spotlight. We’re taking a look back at their early years together to today on their milestone anniversary!

Meeting At An Audition

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith photographed in 1996 [AP Images].What’s more Hollywood than meeting at an audition? Will and Jada first met when the actress auditioned to play Will’s girlfriend on the popular ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Unfortunately, Jada never got the role, which ended up going to Nia Long. But Will was nevertheless taken by Jada’s talent and beauty.

Wedding Bells On New Year’s Eve

He was, at the time, still involved with his first wife, Sheree Zampino, although the pair had hit a rough patch in their marriage. By the time Sheree and Will decided to breakup, Will was ready to pursue Jada, who moved from her native Baltimore to California. The pair started dating following Will’s 1995 divorce and married on December 31, 1997 at a hotel in Jada’s hometown.

Starting A Family

Trey Smith, Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Will Smith at an event [AP Images].It wasn’t long after Will and Jada said ‘I do’ that they began to expand their family. The couple’s son, Jaden Christopher Syre Smith, was born on July 8, 1998. Roughly two years later, Will and Jada welcomed their daughter Willow Camille Reign Smith on October 31, 2000. Jada is also the step-mother to Will’s son from his first marriage, Willard Carroll “Trey” Smith III. The family have such a united front, and both Willow and Jaden have worked with their parents in the past!

Jaden played the son of Will’s character in the Oscar-nominated film The Pursuit of Happyness in 2006 and After Earth in 2013. Willow appeared as Will’s character’s daughter in the 2007 film I Am Legend. Willow is also the co-host of Red Table Talk with Jada and Jada’s mom, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

A Decade Of Love

Not only was it a major milestone for the couple, it was also huge for a couple in Hollywood to last for that long! But Will and Jada proved how united they were and how supportive they continue to be of each other’s careers. Of course, some have often scrutinized the couple’s relationship, and the two have opened up about what makes their marriage work.

Setting The Record Straight

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith photographed in 2012, the year of their 15th wedding anniversary [AP Images].“I’ve always told Will, ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay,’” Jada explained during a HuffPost Live interview from 2013. “Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.”

But even Will has admitted that there were times that he wasn’t doing enough for the couple’s marriage in the past. “There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight. I started keeping a diary,” Will told Willow during an October 2018 episode of Red Table Talk. “It was every morning. I think that’s the worst I’ve ever felt in our marriage. I was failing miserably.”

The ‘Entanglement’ Story

In 2020, Jada Pinkett Smith set the record straight on her ‘entanglement’ with August Alsina [AP Images].In July 2020, Will and Jada went on Red Table Talk to have a conversation about Jada’s alleged relationship with August Alsina. Jada confirmed that she was caught-up in an “entanglement” with the young singer, and it left a major impact on her marriage to Will. “I really felt like we could be over,” Will confessed. “We came together young,” said Will, “and we were both broken in our own ways, and to be able to make mistakes without the fear of losing your family is so critical,” he continued.

For her part, Jada admitted that “one of the things that I’m deeply grateful in this whole process between you and I is that we have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.” Will, however, admitted that he “wasn’t sure I was ever going to speak to you again.” The two, however, worked on their marriage and relationship. “The fact that I’m speaking to you again is a miracle.”

To that end, Jada couldn’t have agreed more. “You gotta go through some sh-t to get the answers. I’m just happy because I definitely believe you and I never ever, ever thought we’d make it back.”

Moving Forward

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith with Jaden Smith and Trey Smith [AP Images].Throughout their decades-long relationship, Will and Jada have really beaten the odds. They have stood by each other’s side through thick and thin, and will likely continue to do so well into the future. The couple has even gotten to a place where they define their romance far beyond what marriage means.

“We don’t even say we’re married anymore,” Will said on a July 2018 episode of TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast. “We refer to ourselves as ‘life partners,’ where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life. There’s no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do—ever—nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support ’til death, and it feels so good to get to that space.”

Matthew Morton was spotted enjoying a dinner with newly single Sofia Richie at a popular Malibu hotspot on the night of Oct. 17. Here are five things you should know about him.

Sofia Richie, 22, made headlines on Oct. 17, when she stepped out with a hunky male who was later identified as Matthew Morton. The good-looking duo visited Nobu restaurant in Malibu, CA for a nice dinner date while dressed to impress. Although the nature of their relationship is not clear, the outing is causing speculation that they could be more than friends since it came just a couple of months after Sofia split from her longtime love Scott Disick, 37. Here are five things you should know about Matthew and where he comes from.

1.) He is the co-founder of Cha Cha Matcha. The business sells various matcha drinks and products in different forms, including lattes, iced teas, and powder, like the one seen in the video below, online and at locations in New York and in the L.A. area. “We started Cha Cha as an alternative to artisanal coffee culture and the extreme, hyperbolic world of energy drinks. This is not your ordinary caffeine fix,” the website says about the background of the company.

2.) His father, Peter Morton, is the founder of Hard Rock Cafe. His paternal grandfather, the late Arnie Morton, was also the founder of the Morton’s Steakhouse chain, so he comes from a business family. Matthew also had a brother, Harry Morton, who was the founder of the restaurant chain Pink Taco and owned Hollywood’s famous club, The Viper Room, at one point. Sadly, Harry died at the age of 38 due to sudden cardiac arrest caused by undiagnosed coronary artery disease on Nov. 23, 2019.

3.) Matthew is the second rumored love interest to Sofia since she ended her relationship with Scott. Before her Oct. 17 outing with him, she and longtime friend Jaden Smith, 22, caused speculation that they may have been an item when they were spotted hanging out at a beach and going to a group dinner together.

4.) He went to school at New York University. “When I graduated from college I was planning to go to University of Southern California (USC) starting in the spring, but I had also been accepted to NYU starting in the fall,” he told Toolsy in an interview about his successful business, Cha Cha Matcha, earlier this year. “I decided to check New York out for a few months, and the second day I was there I knew I wanted to stay.  I ended up staying in New York for all 4 years of college and studied Business Management with a minor in Art History.”

He also revealed that he recently moved back to L.A., where he was prior to the Big Apple.

5.) The inspiration for his business and work ethic comes from his family. “My family has been in food and beverage now for 4 generations. That’s definitely been an inspiration for me,” he told Toolsy. “Walking with my dad in his restaurants and hotels was always something I enjoyed. Being young and seeing all of these big operations as I grew up was really special.  It’s always been a dream of mine to have a hotel or restaurant. Food and beverage was one of the many things I was interested in growing up.  I’ve also always been passionate about art, film, music and literature.”

Jaden Smith has willpower! He managed to make it through a three minute cryotherapy session in -200 degree temperatures while wearing just trunks and mittens.

Many professional athletes use cryotherapy to as a method of recovery from injuries and inflammation. But actor Jaden Smith gave it a shot with pal David Blaine, as the famed illusionist was preparing his body for the freezing temperatures he would endure with his “Ascension” balloon stunt. In a YouTube video, Jaden managed to power through a full three minute session with temperatures between negative 200–300°F, and totally blew David’s mind with his willpower and fortitude.

“I’m will try to stay in there for as long as I possibly can,” Jaden told David and a facility technician, who warned, “There’s a lot of pro athletes that can’t do it,” as David elaborated, “Meaning they jump out in like 30 or 40 seconds.” After being told that a professional boxer the prior day had tapped out of being inside the chamber, Jaden excitedly replied, “Wow! This is crazy right now.”

Wearing just blue trunks, heavy mittens and socks, and showing off his ripped shirtless bod, Jaden entered the chamber, took a deep breath, and looked downward with deep concentration. Eventually David encouraged the 22-year-old by telling him, “You’re halfway there,” while knocking on the chamber to tell him he was at the 1:30 mark. Jaden replied with a thumbs up to let everyone know he was doing okay.

“He’s got 45 seconds left, he’s doing great!” David marveled. Towards the end he noted that Jaden was starting to shake, but the After Earth star remained standing in place and determined to go the distance. At the three minute mark Jaden put his arms above his head in victory, but once he was out of the chamber, Jaden let on how cold he really was.

Despite making it look so easy do to three minutes inside the cryochamber, Jaden made chilly “Brr” noises upon exiting, while David gave him an encouraging, “That’s amazing,” for the actor’s stamina. But then it was David’s turn to blow Jaden’s mind, as he did NINE minutes inside the freezing chamber. The 47-year-old explained that, “Now the way this helps in my next stunt is when I’m going up with the balloons, I’m riding all the way up, basically every thousand feet you lose three and a half degrees.”

When David pulled off the three full sessions that made his body so cold his body temperature didn’t register on a thermometer, Jaden exclaimed, “I do not know how…that was insane.” It turned out David needed to be able to handle temperatures that cold, as he made it nearly 25,000 feet above Page, Arizona while holding on to a giant cluster of balloons on Sept. 1, before eventually parachuting back down to to the ground below.

With the drama involving his parents’ marriage, Jaden Smith needed some time to chill out with pals. He headed to the beach with Kendall Jenner to get his mind off his folks’ very public marital confessions.

Who better for Jaden Smith to hang out with right now than Kendall Jenner? His mom Jada Pinkett, 48, recently admitted to a relationship with singer-songwriter August Alsina, 27, while secretly separated from movie superstar husband Will Smith, 51. Jaden could use some time around a pal like Kendall, who is used to dealing with plenty of high profile family drama. The pair hit the beach in Malibu along with several friends and Kendall’s Doberman Pinscher Pyro on July 12. The group was all smiles while sitting in the sand, as Kendall later bared her incredible bikini body for a dip in the ocean.

Kendall sported a purple two piece with white patterns on it as she went for a swim. The 24-year-old covered up her incredible model body in a white t-shirt while lying on a beach blanket with Jaden. He played a little matchy matchy with Kenny, wearing a purple and pink swirled tie-dyed shirt, which he took off for their sunbathing session.

Kendall put her brown locks up in a loose bun behind her head, and donned a dark baseball cap. There was still no missing her stunning face, and without sunglasses she was completely recognizable. She looked so pretty makeup free while chilling out at the beach among friends. Kendall and Jaden go way back as pals, and have known each other for years.

Their beach session came just two days after Jaden’s dad Will joined his mom Jada for a special episode of her Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. They addressed August’s claims that he and Jada had a deep and passionate romance during her marriage to Will. August also claimed he had the Independence Day star’s blessing to go forth with the relationship with Jada.

“Four and a half years ago…I started a friendship with August and we actually became really, really good friends,” Jada explained. “And it all started with him just needing some help, me wanting to help his health, his mental state.” She recalled to Will that, “You and I were going through a very difficult time.” He replied, “I was done with you.” Jada continued, “We broke up. We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time.”

“From there as time went on I got into a different kind of entanglement with August. One thing I want to clean up…about you giving ‘permission’ which is…the only person that can give permission in that circumstance is myself,” she said. Jada explained that she and will were “separated amicably,” and then clarified that when she said the term “entanglement,” “Yes, it was a relationship absolutely.” Will and Jada didn’t split for good, revealing that instead, “We have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.”

HorseShoe Gang – Homeless Life (4 Brothers Album) letras

[Intro: Julius Luciano]
It’s hard to estimate the nation’s homeless population
So we shouldn’t add them into the equation
That’s what people think
See we shouldn’t wait for the Census Bureau to acknowledge them
We a part of them
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link
Before we reach the brink of destruction, we can reach an understanding
At least I’m wishing we would
Its aight, I’m a bum too
By which i mean B.U.M
A Brother Unfairly Misunderstood

[Verse 1: Julius Luciano]
Yo, where I’m from the have-nots feel like refugees
With no refuge, I’m trapped, who’s gonna rescue me
All of my life I’ve been caught in this fight
I’m in a boxing ring, no referee
As a child I was homeless, wait let me strike a scene
Eleven years old, been in these scary streets for weeks
With one parent, my family portrait never been complete
I’m asking every pedestrian to spare some sympathy
They stare as if I reek of excrement
They speak so arrogant and keep
Their distance as if they can’t bare the stench of me
They scared as if I reach, and steal their shit
But I’m innocent. Never been a thief
Can’t spare a cent to me
Embarrassment’s the least of my concerns
What to do now?
Me and my family stuck on the ground
Stomach is starting to rumble and growl
Clenching it tight to muffle the sound
Starting to feel like a stray dog
But at least they get picked up by the pound
Down on my luck, no luck to be found
I pray to God, looking up in the clouds

[Hook 1: Julius Luciano]
A young nigga with no place to go, and you can see I’m homeless
Switch the "m" for a "p", and now I’m hopeless
I’m losin’ my mind
How will I focus?
Where will I go?
Where will I go?
Feels like I’m walking round aimlessly
I’m so lost, feels like I’ve lost days of sleep
As I fall, to my knees, somebody pray for me
O woah
Where will I go?
Where will I go?

[Verse 2: Kenny Siegel]
In case you wonder why I don’t mind stunting
A skeeting for an hour has been a long time coming
I was a little nigga, who was homeless
Who’s empty pockets needed a fill-up
But I wasn’t approached by a Drummond
Live or cats got killed for kicks and bass
Nope not drumming
Talking low-tops and coke rocks from know-nots dumbing
.45 busting
Wasn’t old enough to go job-hunting
Standing 4’5" hustling
Picture that like camera-men
Our society is garbage
If home is where the heart is
This is why I’m heartless
This is why I’m starving
Flashbacks of raindrops drizzling while your dark bitch
Sitting by the park bench
Like this is my apartment
This is why my bars sick
Their darker than the tar-pit
I should feel like I’m carsick
From so much drive, fuck them haters who mouth-run
Failure is an option, not just a possible outcome

[Hook 1: Julius Luciano]
A young nigga with no place to go, and you can see I’m homeless
Switch the "m" for a "p", and now I’m hopeless
I’m losin’ my mind
How will I focus?
Where will I go?
Where will I go?
Feels like I’m walking round aimlessly
I’m so lost, feels like I’ve lost days of sleep
As I fall, to my knees, somebody pray for me
O woah
Where will I go?
Where will I go?

[Verse 3: Demetrius Capone]
Ok. This is real talk shit
Sleeping on the park bench
Starving as darkness falls
And we all kids
Talking to God, saying we drowning
Where’s our ship?
Noah’s Ark departed without us
Now we got this hardship
No apartment, car, or house
And now my savage heart gets
Darker than the darkness
Now this cat is heartless
I’m praying for some brighter days so I can talk shit
I’m waiting on my father’s grave so I can hauk spit
All of my aunts disowned us
And now we all alone plus
They called the law on us
To throw us off in a foster home
Cuz we never had a home to call our own
But y’all can go suck our fucking dicks you fucking bitches
Now that we all are grown up
I’m trying to buy a house and a childhood
Ask me for a handout, I wish thou would
If you ain’t been through what I been through, then I don’t trust you
If you ain’t struggled, then hustled, nigga fuck you

[Hook 2: Kobe]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Our father, who are in heaven
Hope you hear me, man these streets are crazy, yeah
Our father, hope you hear me
I know you see me
Man this is all I got, okay?
This is all I got, okay?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 4: Andrew ‘Dice’ Dinero]
I’m from a place where enemies keep Glocks exploding
So I burn beef like pots without non-stick coating
Watch the profit you clock, or your guap get stolen
Protect yourself at all time, I don’t mean cops and Trojans
Cops patrolling and raiding shit
Niggas without electricity get it turned on themselves, Raiden shit
You gotta have a strong will to escape the shit
Cause success is related to Will, like Jaden Smith
I’m married now, the hustle-games’ my bitch
Dedication is the anchor that holds down a relationship
I told her ‘You Belong With Me’, Taylor Swift
Persistence is a virtue, like patience is
My niggas trying to get major rich, selling green plants
Selling out the Garden, like when major teams play the Knicks
I’m from where niggas end up in jail or the morgue
Fallen soldiers live by, and fell by the sword
Them hammers hit everything except nails through a board
People hollering bout college, but you’ll (Yale) get ignored
Hustler’s got no Focus, so to hell with a Ford
People pushing whips, you wonder who the hell could afford
More souls get sold than Hell could afford
Cops watching everything, but fail to record
Police brutality, these streets is Amity-Ville
I see calamity, what I speak is actually real
I’m speaking candidly, I need a piece of sanity
But I’m trying to feed my fam, even if people have to be killed
Real recognize real if you don’t seem familiar
If the truth hurts, then what I speak will kill ya
Life is hard, in fact, damn right unfair
But I’m a winner nigga, damn right fuck yeah
I’m living like I don’t have one care
But I’m a stay drawn until I’m roommates with the Man upstairs
Kobe sing
