Look Alive - BlocBoy JB ft. Drake




The Experience: Look alive... thriving is an even greater achievement when even just living is hard...

Music video: Drake, BlocBoy and crew rap and dance.

The Meaning of Look Alive: BlocBoy describes the song as a tribute to his friend Drake's Memphis roots: growing up in poverty but making it to the other side. Living in a violent environment - blow you like a flute - where it's easy to die - drop like he litterin'. But still succeeding.

Ask yourself: How do your roots affect who you are?

Album: - (2018)

LYRICS:


[Drake]
Yeah yeah (woo!)
Yeah (6 God, BlocBoy, 6 God, BlocBoy, woo!)
(6 God, BlocBoy, 6 God, BlocBoy, woo!)
Yeah

901 Shelby Drive, look alive, look alive
N-ggas came up on this side, now they on the other side
Oh well, f-ck 'em dog, we gon' see how hard they ride
I get racks to go outside, and I split it with the guys
We up on the other side, n-ggas actin' like we tied
I've been gone since like July, niggas actin' like I died
They won't be expectin' sh-t when Capo go to slide
'Cause I told them that we put that sh-t behind us, but I lied

Ayy, ayy, look who I'm around, man
If I f-cked up, I'ma be downtown, man
Fourth floor bound, man, that's if I get caught, man
Pushed me to the edge, so it really ain't my m-th-f-ckin' fault, man
I'm not to blame, man
The f-cking industry is cutthroat, I'm not the same man
I'm not gonna let you check the tag, now I'm rocking name brand
I'm only chasing after bags, now I got a game plan
And I'm out here whipping boots
Sipping hundred, 305 look alive, look alive

N-ggas came up on this side, now they on the other side
Oh well, f-ck 'em dog, we gon' see how hard they ride
I get racks to throw outside, and I split it with the guys
We up on the other side, n-ggas actin' like we tight
I've been gone since like July, n-ggas actin' like I died
They won't be expectin' sh-t when Capo go to slide
'Cause I told them to put that sh-t behind us, but I

[BlocBoy JB]
B-tch, come through, you, and you
I'ma get the money, D-D-Drizzy get the loot
P-p-pull up with that Draco
Play with Drake and I'ma shoot
My weapon be an instrument, I blow you like a flute
N-n-nigga play so he feelin’ it
Pull up all day with a K, I ain't shiverin'
Drop a n-gga like he litterin'
We at the door like we the delivery
He not a plug, he middle man
That-that n-gga brown like cinnamon
I got the rounds like Sugar Ray Robinson
Shots to your chest have you gasping for oxygen
I'ma spray 'em, just like Febreeze
Came a long way from sittin' in the nosebleeds
Now a n-gga on the floor talkin' to the athletes
Now I'm so close to the game I could steal the stat sheet

[Drake]
901 Shelby Drive, look alive, look alive
N-ggas came up on this side, now they on the other side
Oh well, f-ck 'em dog, we gon' see how hard they ride
I get racks to throw outside, and I split it with the guys
We up on the other side, n-ggas actin' like we tight
I've been gone since like July, n-ggas actin' like I died
They won't be expectin' sh-t when Capo go to slide
'Cause I told them to put that sh-t behind us, but I lied
Behind me but I lied, ayy, ayy
