Marlon Craft – High Time Lyrics

High Time By Marlon Craft

m——– dispensaries around the country are staying open during shelter-in-place orders in some states, that’s because lawmakers and regulators are classifying the business as ‘essential’.”

So essentially cause they buy it from white-owned dispensaries

And the government taxin, now it get the pass

But the black folks in jail they ain’t settin free, right?

I ain’t tryn play referee

I’m just callin bullshit

That’s what I do

I don’t even smoke you could say I’m a friend of the movement though

Remember in high school on the right night s—, you could smell the smoke in my cuticles

But I’s a little virgin

S— made me nervous

Now you can catch with a 5th of bourbon

Wish I could smoke cause that s— be more healthy

But f— can you tell me? The future’s uncertain and we be yearnin’

I used to sell 0.7s for $20 if they was fluffy

Only for a summer but you see how easy it would be for me to front?

In a rhyme like these tough little guys

Take a day of their life that they say in a line

And then act like it’s how they was livin in time and expect we believe

That’s the smoke I don’t like

That’s the one that come with some mirrors

F— how you cope witcho fears

As long as you workin through em

And improvin all through your years

F— sentiments of your peers

Do you for you, not no cheers

Every true tough guy I ever knew was scared cause if you for real you know consequences


I been tryna find some peace for the longest time

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I just need a lil release, I been on my grind

My grind and I think it’s high time

Had to get real low just to get this high

Had to get real low just to get this high

Had to get real low just to get this high

And I’m up like, “bah bah bah bah bah bah”
