A$AP Rocky – Brotha Man (Ft. French Montana & Frank Ocean)

 1,09

A$AP Rocky – A$AP Rocky – Brotha Man (Ft. French Montana & Frank Ocean) the ninth song on his third album, Rocky’s “experimenting” falls flat. He’s more transparent than he’s ever been in his career, and his technical ability as a rapper is slicker than ever. Ten seconds in, you’re immediately thrown into a vastly different world than that of “Gunz N Butter”. The beat almost has the feel of a latin dance hall. Off the bat, it’s clear this is unlike anything we’ve previously seen from Rocky. Quite honestly, French Montana and Rocky’s verses lack substance, but the soulful beat carries your mind and in a weird way… it works? Snoop Dogg and Frank Ocean appear quite briefly in somewhat forgettable fashion. French Montana is often much maligned for his simple flow and uninspiring lyrics, but if your going to put him on a track, this is an excellent example of how to make it work. His voice and style just fit.

Lyrics

[Intro: A$AP Rocky]

Young man, brotha brotha, you gotta fight for somethin’
Stand for somethin’, brotha, understand, God don’t make the plays
Take the truth, get through, ride your wave, just keep it true
We’ll fight the blues, we’ll fight the blues
Brotha man, young man, let me tell you somethin’
Young man, brotha man, brotha man
You gotta fight for somethin’, stand for somethin’
That’s what the poem told me
It was a greater poet like you know it but
I’d rather talk about how my neck is frozen and I
I’d rather talk about the banging hoes and then
Stay up in the bitches while she dozing

[Chorus: French Montana]

When I went to my brotha, told him, “Help me please”
Now we hop out the PJs posted by the P
My old bitch yellin’, “Come back, come back
Come back, babe
Cme back (come back) come back (come back)
Come back (come back) babe

[Verse 1: A$AP Rocky & Snoop Dogg]

Harlem nights, quick speed, Godspeed
Speed of light, Grease Lightnin’, leather on my six-speed bike
Bicycle tires, icicle diamonds, popsicle stripes
Pop (sicles) pop (sicles) for the Klondikes
Pop-pop wheelies on the dirty bikes, 15 sellin’ China white
Cops stoppin’ if you opposite of white
Pop, pop like you opposite of right
Take heed, lil’ nigga, lowkey, take lead on a nigga

[Bridge: A$AP Rocky & Frank Ocean]

Smooth dude riding ’round the boulevard
Back in the days on the train
Ride the bus before I ride another nigga wave
Beautiful, the water’s flat like ass is pre-Onika (yeah)
You the smaller version, you the baby sneaker

[Verse 2: A$AP Rocky]

Flacko, I wonder how it feel to live or be like you
Album number three and keep it G like Q
Heard you niggas get fly like G, like 2
Nah, more like 4, like 3, not 2
Shittin’ on these niggas like P, like U
Drip Raheem and Q, got Hi-C like juice
Mama hubby got life, he got three strikes too
Real niggas bleed like me, like you
That’s why I got a beam with a green light too
I don’t even make a scene, I just swing right through
I’m just bangin’ on my Qs and my Ps like soup
Walk in my shoes, follow me like suit

[Pre-Chorus: A$AP Rocky]

Brotha man, young man, let me tell you somethin’
Young man, brotha-brotha, gotta fight for somethin’
Stand for somethin’, brotha understand, God don’t make the plays
Take the truth, get through, ride your wave, just keep the truth

[Chorus: French Montana & Frank Ocean]

Remember when I went to my brotha, told him, “Help me please”
Now we hop out the PJs, posted by the P
My old bitch yellin’, “Come back, come back
Come back, babe
Cme back (come back) come back (come back)
Come back (come back) babe”

[Outro: Frank Ocean]

You’re a cornstar, all you fuck is corn broads (you fucking pop)
Frenchie faux pas cause you ain’t had no pa
Your dealer got catches like an outfielder
(Are you, are you, are you?)
Getting that God’s view from towers
Lookin’ downward like I’m Donald Trump
