Hooss – La, La, La Lyrics

[Intro]
J’suis sapé en Gucci
J’fais des “La, la, la” comme les Fugees
Ouh la, la, la
J’suis sapé en Gucci
J’fais des “La, la, la” comme les Fugees
J’suis sapé en Gucci
J’fais des “La, la, la” comme les Fugees

[Couplet 1]
J’connais la vie, j’sais qu’j’vais bientôt crever
J’suis au fond du carré, j’finis mon rre-vé
J’prends l’flow pété d’ton rappeur préféré
J’prépare ma deuxième mixtape, j’suis refait
Tous mes frérots se font déférer
Les anciens sont tombés dans l’héro’
J’bicrave malgré les intempéries
J’aime trop, j’aime trop, j’aime trop faire les euros
Depuis que j’fais du buzz, j’fais des envieux
Tu sais rapper, nous aussi mais en mieux
De bon matin, j’effrite sur le crémeux
Le soir, j’m’endors avec mon arme à feu
Maman a retrouvé mon kilo dans la chambre
Maman a retrouvé mon kilo dans la chambre
On s’est fait seul, sans prétention
C’est du talent, non, c’est pas d’la chance
Et puis merde
Quand j’y pense, f*ck un maton
Dédicace aux frérots enfermés dans toute la France
En ce moment j’me pose plein d’questions
J’espère réussir ma mission
HLM en bord de mer
J’ai vu la misère en haute définition
J’ai un pompe, j’ai un don
Avec les fausses personnes, j’ai coupé les ponts
Mieux vaut être seul que mal accompagné
Courir après des personnes fausses, à quoi bon ?
J’me tire à kkech-Mara
J’finis mes vacances à Alger Centre
T’es au tieks, tu fumes d’la para
Tu pètes les plombs dans tous les sens

[Refrain] (x2)
J’suis rempli d’soucis, j’effrite sur mon bout d’shit
J’suis sappé en Gucci, j’fais des “La, la, la” comme les Fugees
On connait la rue, la Brigades des stups, les huissiers d’justice
On empile les plaques comme dans Tetris
La juge demande préjudice

[Couplet 2]
J’ai renversé d’l’essence, j’ai fait cramer sa turevoi
Dans l’rap j’ai fait des progrès, est-c’que tu l’vois ?
Ma princesse mais dis-moi
J’t’emmène faire un tour, j’t’emmène en week-end
J’ai fait profiter les petits du tieks
Refusé toute signature venant d’un franc-maçon
Désolé mes frères, j’traîne plus trop dans l’quartier
J’ai trouvé de nouvelles occupations
Aucune contrefaçon, mes vêtements sentent le neuf
Liasse d’argent sale, on cambriole pas ta vieille
On deale, on fait plus d’argent que la veille
On cherche que des villas équipées d’un coffre-fort
J’te tire dessus sans pression même si t’es Voldemort
Dans la poche j’ai un goldeneyez pour passer crème dans la foule
Tu nous fais l’mec, mon équipe t’as vu sniffer toute la poudre

[Refrain] (x4)
J’suis rempli d’soucis, j’effrite sur mon bout d’shit
J’suis sappé en Gucci, j’fais des “La, la, la” comme les Fugees
On connait la rue, la Brigades des stups, les huissiers d’justice
On empile les plaques comme dans Tetris
La juge demande préjudice

[Outro]
Ouh la, la, la
