"Soul Survivor (feat. Akon)" as written by Jay Jenkins and Aliaune Thiam....
Convict
Akon and Young Jeezy
Tryin' to take it easy
Only way to go
And so (Let's get it!)

If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

Cause everybody know the game don't stop
Tryin' to make it to the top for your ass get popped now
If you a rider (yeah)
Or just a soul survivor (yeah)

(Let's get it) I can't sleep, we livin' in Hell (yeah)
First they, give us the work then they throw us in jail (Ayy)
Road trip ya, I'm trafficking in the white
Please Lord don't let me go to jail tonight (yeah)
Who me?? I'm a soul survivor
Ask about 'em in the street, the boy Jeezy a rider (Jeezy a rider)
A hundred grand on my wrist, yeah life sucks (ha ha)
Fuck the club, dawg, I rather count a million bucks (Ayy)

If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

Another day, another dolla (dolla)
Same block, same nigga, same part, same green
I guess we got the same dreams (Ayy)
Or is it the same nightmares (nightmares)
We let the thugs do it for us, we don't cry tears (that's right)
Real niggas don't budge
When mail man got his time he shot birds at the judge (yeah)
I'm knee deep in the game
So when it's time to read up, I'm knee deep in the 'caine (damn)
Real talk, look, I'm tellin' you main (tellin' you main)
If you get jammed up don't mention my name
Forgive me Lord - I know I ain't livin' right
Gotta feed the block, niggaz starvin', they got appetites (ayy)
And this is everyday, it never gets old (old)
Thought I was a juvenile stuck to the G-Code (yeah)
This ain't a rap song, nigga this is my life (this is my life)
And if the hood was a battlefield then I'd earn stripes (yeah)

If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

Gotta watch your every move 'cause them eyes be on you (eyes be on you)
Gotta drive real cool when them pie's be on you (pie's be on you)
Just because we stack paper and we ball outrageous (ball outrageous)
Them alphabet boards gotta us under surveillance (ayy)
Like animals they lock us in cages
The same nigga that's a star when you put 'em on stages
I ain't cheat, played the hand I was dealt
Tried to tax the grand pearl when I got it myself
(Let's get it) No nuts, no glory (no glory)
My biography, you damn right, the true story (yeah)
Set the city on fire, and I didn't even try (try)
Run these streets all day, I can sleep when I die (ayy)

Cause if you lookin' for me you you can find me
On the block disobeyin' the law
Real G, thoroughbred from the streets
Pants saggin' with my gun in my draws
Just to keep on movin' now
Just to keep on movin' now
Just to keep on movin' now
Just to keep on movin' now

If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

    General CommentThis has to be one of the best songs ever written. When he says "If you get jammed up, don't mention my name," his voice makes the best growl.

    Also, the line about Mail Man shooting birds at the judge is fucking hardcore.

    Pretty much everything about this song is so fucking awesome.

    General Commentmail man is one of his business partners and bird is slang for a quantity of cocaine/crack, so basically hes saying that they bribe the judges if shit goes down. and when he says if you get jammed up, dont mention my name he is saying if any of his runners get caught that they better not snitch on him.

    this song is ok but he definately has better ones.

    General CommentI'm pretty certain that Jeezy says "A hundred grand on my wrist yeah life sucks."
    Not "Yeah right, sups."

    General CommentI forgot to say this is an awesome song. I like Trap Star better. That is the best song on his album in my opinion.

    General CommentThe line about mail man shooting birds at the judge means that his boy flipped off the judge, and stayed quiet.

    Its G code - when you get jammed up, you don't snitch, you keep quiet and .... flip the judge off.

    Similar to "flipped him the bird"

    General CommentThis song is absolute crap.
    Basically 2 paranoid coke dealers, akon and jeezy, are laying low are trying to "survive" in life rolling around with gats and other accessories and traits that make them stereotypical gangstas.
    Oh wait, I've heard this song before. It's called EVERY OTHER SONG EVER MADE BY SOUTHERN BLACK RAPPERS.
    Listen to Murs, Lupe Fiasco, Gym Class Heroes those are all artists with TALENT unlike squeaky voices, akon singing convict in almost every song he's in, and horrible beats that must literally take 2 days to fabricate. This is absolute garbage, and further degrades what was once a beautiful race.
