(5 Boro Quotable) Fabolous [ @myfabolouslife ] - ''Pain''

The idea of the Hip Hop Quotable isn't new but our rating system is. We may not post as often as some of the bigger blogs but we've always been innovative with it. This is going to be our latest addition of content entitled 5 Boro Quotable where we highlight some of our favorite verses and provide the lyrics to go along with the record. Another idea for you sucka ass niggaz to chomp on.

Fab has always been a slept on lyricist maybe due to the fact that he's always come with some very radio friendly singles but on his recently released S.O.U.L. Tape, Fab once again shows us why his pen game is not to be taken lightly. There are quotables all over this tape but the intro is possibly my favorite. Fab takes the Tupac classic from the Above The Rim soundtrack entitled Pain and does it justice. Pac would be proud. Below is our very first recipient of the 5 Boro Quotable seal of approval.

Fabolous – Pain Lyrics

[Fabolous]
I’m old enough to know better, young enough to not give a f-ck
Rather hold my head high & die, then live and duck
If you’re cool with being taken down and giving up
Your lifestyle’s a blow job, the way you’re living sucks!
I done felt pain, waited but no help came
Went through some crazy shit still kept myself sane
You ever been dying of thirst and smelt rain
Ever been told “go to hell” and felt flames
The water’s to your neck and only gets deeper
Its all down hill and it only gets steeper
Gotta get over it, be a hurdle leaper
It cost to be the boss, it aint get no cheaper
But there’s a man above that we all under bro
No bread truck but he work wonders though!
After you wake up, everything is wonderful
You can overcome anything you undergo
As an artist I’m just tryna paint the perfect picture
But see where tryna wait for somebody thats perfect gets you
That usually lead to nothing like virgin kisses
And I be tryna cut, surgeon bitches
Dreams of splurging riches, pretty but curvy misses
Chef to serve the dishes, driving to swerve the ditches
I’m just another kid on the curb of wishes
And the streets is tough, on the verge of vicious
So I sold weed and crack, business
That white girl helped a nigga, Fergalicious
But getting money bring jealousy and verbal disses
So when you killin’ shit watch out for the murder witness
An old head told me, let nothing disturb your business
Beef is only good when you in the burger business
So I chilled, but loaded up the steal
Like I wish a nigga would, But I know a nigga will
But for real you loaded up to kill
Cause soon as a nigga could the sooner a nigga will
And I don’t owe these niggas nothing
Put that in a nigga will

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
