LYRICS: Lecrae – Broke

Lecrae – Broke Lyrics

Chorus:
Being broke in this thing don’t sit right
Do it for my folk, tryna get by
I came through the struggle with my head high
You being broke think you know what it feel like
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich

Chorus:
Gotta keep the stove hot so it cook right, if everybody eating that’s a good night
Headed to the lost why I took flight, the hard times made for a good life
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich

Verse 1:
Never fell in love with the Coco, Never had to hold up the store with the .44
Never had the door kicked in by the feds while I’m laying in the bed on the bread that I’m gon’ blow
But I do know what it feel like to go to school with the knock off shoes
Eating free lunch, tryna act all cool, boy you better know that we paid our dues
Never would I trade that, nah, ’cause it made me better, it could have made me bitter
Can’t buy that struggle, can’t name no figure, but it made me richer
Being broke made me rich, and being low made you quit
But being low made me high, take time if you want this

Hook:
Being broke in this thing don’t sit right
Do it for my folk, tryna get by
I came through the struggle with my head high
You being broke think you know what it feel like
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich

Chorus:
Gotta keep the stove hot so it cook right, if everybody eating that’s a good night
Headed to the lost is why I took flight, the hard times made for a good life
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich

Verse 2:
Money may have made me me richer, but the struggle got me richer than I ever been
Learn to hustle, use ya’ muscles, learn to grind and keep ya’ mind up on the future, man
We came out the trenches, government assistance in the beginning
Keeping cans for the pennies, we saving that grease after dinner
Now they counting all my pennies, counting all my figures, all up in my business, man
Now they watching what I’m spending, wondering what I got, and wonder how I get it, man
I was bought before I had a dollar, being empty handed made me stupid rich
Rich in loyalty, can’t pay that lawyer fee, but it’s all good
That’s why I pitch it in

Hook:
Being broke in this thing don’t sit right
Do it for my folk, tryna get by
I came through the struggle with my head high
You being broke think you know what it feel like
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich

Chorus:
Gotta keep the stove hot so it cook right, if everybody eating that’s a good night
Headed to the lost is why I took flight, the hard times made for a good life
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
Being broke made me rich, being broke made me rich
