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
