A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Drowning lyrics

Intro

I’m drownin’
I’m drownin’
I’m drownin’
I’m drownin’

Chorus

Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, bitch I’m drownin’
In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’
I just bought a Cuban ring and dipped it in a fountain
Chain so heavy I feel like I’m holdin’ up a mountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’

Verse 1

I’m with all my niggas, I don’t go nowhere without ’em
If they don’t let us in they might throw shots at the bouncer
Actavis medicine, got it straight from out the doctor’s
I’m with RJ but I call him Wayne ’cause he’s a shotta
Pick up the ladder, put it in the gun, make the .9 stretch
Niggas with attitude, but we come straight out of Highbridge
I’m gon’ make her panties wet when she see the way I flex
I’m gon’ win a Grammy, move my family out the projects
We went from chillin’ in the projects to makin’ projects
We was tryna get to the top, and they tried to stop us
I talk for myself, bitch I don’t need no fucking voucher
She looked at my wrist and she looked at a hundred thousand

Chorus

Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, bitch I’m drownin’
In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’
I just bought a Cuban ring and dipped it in a fountain
Chain so heavy I feel like I’m holdin’ up a mountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’

Verse 2

Just bought a brand new chain from Avianne
Nigga with attitude but I ain’t from Compton
Lil Kodak, bitch, I’m Polo’d down like Carlton
Sniper Gang, I put a nigga on a carton
I’m the shit I’m fartin’, I don’t know how to potty
Pull up in a ‘Rari, I’m in the Yo like Gotti
A Boogie, I’m goin’ Scottie, nigga drop my deposit
I ain’t Jamaican, bitch I’m Haitian, but I got them shottas
Harley Davidson every day, I’m ridin’ with the chopper
They hatin’, I know they don’t wanna see a nigga prosper
I ain’t doing trims, I’m in the cut like I’m a barber
She call me daddy, but I ain’t her motherfucking father

Chorus

Wrist so icy, wonder why she like me, bitch I’m drownin’
In water, I just bought a Cuban, dipped it in a fountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’
I just bought a Cuban ring and dipped it in a fountain
Chain so heavy I feel like I’m holdin’ up a mountain
Everywhere that I go it’s a light show, I’m surrounded
Bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bust down, bitch I’m drownin’

Outro

Bitch, I’m drownin’
Bitch, I’m drownin’
I’m drownin’
Drownin’
I’m drownin
