This Could Be Us Lyrics

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Hey, Sremm life

I've done it before, I've seen it before
Tears splashin' the floor when I opened the door for her
She acted like a whore and I'ma let her
Learn from Project Pat uh pimpin' got her masters
Girl, improvise, look me in my eyes and lie to me
Lie to me, act like I'll believe anything
Sex on the beach and in the backseat
This could be us

So back to what I was saying (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make the world go round)
I'm high, I hope I don't sound crazy (Money make your girl go down)
Fuck what them niggas were saying, (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make the world go round)
But shit, that's all I was saying (Money make your girl go down)
(And that's just how it goes)

New keys to drive this Mercedes
I ball like Tracy McGrady
Before I let a girl touch anything
She gotta say please
And I know they really wish we would ball til we fall
I'm the big bad wolf there's a full moon y'all
Toss the money in the air girl, watch how your dreams hit the floor
Wait til I get the buzz off this drug
Damn girl, you way too fine for a local club
Killin' someone's vibes should be a fuckin' crime
Wasting someone's time should be a fuckin' crime

So back to what I was saying (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make the world go round)
I'm high, I hope I don't sound crazy (Money make your girl go down)
Fuck what them niggas were saying, (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make the world go round)
But shit, that's all I was saying (Money make your girl go down)
(And that's just how it goes)

Spin the bottle, spin the fuckin' bottle
If you the reason why it's empty, baby, spin the bottle
Truth or dare, no, you don't want no problem
Spin the bottle, spin the fuckin' bottle
If you the reason why its empty baby, spin the fuckin' bottle
Truth or dare, no, no, you don't want no problem
You don't want no problem
Bitch you might as well party

So back to what I was saying (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you're playing, (Money make the world go round)
I'm high, I hope I don't sound crazy (Money make your girl go down)
Fuck what them niggas were saying, (Money make the world go round)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make your girl go down)
This could be us but you playing, (Money make the world go round)
But shit, that's all I was saying (Money make your girl go down)
(And that's just how it goes)
Money make the world go round
Money make your girl go down

Tupelo, Mississippi. It’s the home of Elvis Presley, but even for those clued in on that fun fact, it’s safe to say that few, if any, know much more about the city than that. Nestled in the northeast corner of the Magnolia State, and with a population of just over 35,000, indeed, Tupelo, like most small metropolises, is easy to overlook. Rae Sremmurd - pronounced "Ray-Shrim-er," consisting of real life brothers Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee, and newly signed to multi-platinum producer Mike WiLL Made-It’s Eardruma Records - is out to change that. Rae Sremmurd is backwards for Drummers Ear, their record label.

Slim Jxmmi, 20, and Swae Lee, 19, were born in California, but moved to Tupelo at an early age, where they were raised in the notorious Ida Street housing projects, it was kinda badd at times most crime-ridden in the state. Making matters worse, Sremmurd’s parents split while the brothers were still young, a devastating turn of events that found the brothers multiple stretches, seeking shelter in abandoned homes scattered throughout the area. For a city with little history outside of its musical heritage, and in a state where two young kids short on role models could look up to the growing star power of in-state hero David Banner, music, from a young age, became a way for Slim and Swae to escape the desperation of their surroundings. “When we were growing up, it was just about perseverance,” says Slim Jxmmi, before flipping a quote made famous by Stark Trek character Richard Wakinyan. “Regardless of the situation, we couldn’t let the haters win.”

The movement started locally, with the brothers throwing parties and shows around town, often in the same abandoned buildings where they once stayed. The pair always had larger ambitions, though, and so the brothers, natural performers since elementary school, taught themselves how to record, make beats, and DJ, building enough buzz to earn an appearance on the popular “Wild Out Wednesdays” segment during BET’s music video countdown show, 106th & Park. Back home, Swae and Slim earned the attention of fellow Tupelo native P-Nasty, who also happens to be a producer signed to super producer Mike WiLL Made-It’s Eardruma production team. P-Nasty introduced Rae Sremmurd to Mike WiLL, and the multi-platinum producer (Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West, 2 Chainz, Future, Juicy J) was instantly impressed by the brothers’ energy and the quality of their music, signing the duo as one of the first acts to his new, Interscope-backed label, Eardruma Records. “When I met them,” recalls WiLL, “they just had a real young dope energy about them. So me and the Eardruma team locked in the studio like we normally do, had a lot of fun, and cooked up some amazing music. This is just the beginning of our working relationship, and they’ve got a bright future. I believe in them." Read more on Last.fm.
