A$AP Rocky – Hun43rd (Ft. Devonté Hynes)

 1,09

A$AP Rocky – A$AP Rocky – Hun43rd (Ft. Devonté Hynes) the twelfth 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. A familiar sound. It’s very reminiscent of something you would find on “At. Long. Last. A$AP” (Rocky’s second album). “Hun43rd” is a reference to 143rd Street in Manhattan, Rocky’s childhood neighbourhood. “Kept a pre-paid on my hip them days, 143rd in front on Minisink. Cam’ron had us wearing pink, from the cradle to the grave.” Again, like many other tracks on the album, the song starts out with a sample. In this case it’s “Cradle to the Grave” by Thug Life, which is rapped and chanted throughout, intermingled with bars about Rocky’s experiences as a young kid.

Hun43rd Lyrics

[Intro: Thug Life]

From the cradle to the grave, I’ma put in work
(Repeat 7x)

[Verse 1: A$AP Rocky]

Uh-huh, yeah, uh-huh
All year long bruh, stuck up in my zone all by my lonesome
Pay the hoe my dues, I brought my own funds
When it’s time to war, I brought my own guns
Difference is I’m ghetto but I’m wholesome
Nigga say I switched up like I’m on some
Why you always treat me like I owe some?
Truthfully you only wanna hold some
Whip it like I’ve been a slave

Bucking from the twelve like I’ve been afraid
Hold up, roll up, burn out, couple minutes saved
Kept a pre-paid on my hip them days, 143rd in front on Minisink
Cam’ron had us wearing pink, from the cradle to the grave
Putting work, hustle round the corner where my nana stay
Couldn’t work, open up shop from the corner store
Make ’em renovate where the killas stand
Fuck a lemonade but they cook it by the Minute Maid
Couple niggas hate
But the best form of flattery is when you imi-
When you imitate, ayy

[Chorus: Dev Hynes & A$AP Rocky]

Tell me how it gonna be
Get like me, tell me how it’s gonna, how it’s gonna be
Tell me how it gonna be
Like me, tell me how it’s gonna be
Tell me how it gonna be, oh
I’ma have a ball, I’ma cop it all, I’ma buy the store
Tell me how it gonna be
I’ma go ball, cradle to the grave
Busy gettin’ paid, niggas don’t shade, nigga I’ma have it–

[Interlude: Thug Life]

From the cradle to the grave, I’ma put in work
(Repeat 3x)

[Verse 2: A$AP Rocky]

With my back against the wall, nigga, I’ma ball
Show you how to ball, got it with the squad (yeah)
Never had a job, but I kept a broad
When I went in Saks, went and copped it all
My cougars had me lit, kept a PYT
Your mama on my dick, prettier than a bitch
And I’m overseas, and I had a ball
Seein’ overseas hoes (really litty lit, uh)
We ain’t counterfeit like we have face tats, how you name go when
Where your hoes, why your chain don’t spin?
Light them up, really like ’em all
Nigga, like it all, nigga, like it, tell her get like me

[Chorus: Dev Hynes & A$AP Rocky]

Tell me how it gonna be
Get like me, tell me how it’s gonna, how it’s gonna be
Tell me how it gonna be
Like me, tell me how it’s gonna be
Tell me how it gonna be, ohh
I’ma have a ball, I’ma cop it all, I’ma buy the store
Tell me how it gonna be
I’ma go ball, cradle to the grave
Busy gettin’ paid, niggas don’t shade, nigga I’ma have it–

[Outro: A$AP Mob & Tyler, The Creator]

Ball! Ball, nigga, Ball!
Ball, nigga, ball! Ball, nigga, ball!
(Repeat 4x)
Bow, wow, bow, wow, bow, nigga, bow!
Bow, nigga, bow! (shoot) bow (pew)
