lyrics

It's another hot day here in South Central Los Angeles
With record breaking temperatures for the month of July
This summer's been a very busy one for LAPD with gang violence at an all-time high
A triple homicide took place at 38th and Central
Standing by with more on this story

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

Capital h to the o to the t that's hot like 22 and sirens
But that's alright
That's okay
We're gonna make it anyway
Black on brown
Hood on hood
Baby crying aint no good
System broken hoping that we just keep on keeping on without
Education raise a nation full of zombies
But that's alright
That's okay
We're gonna make it through the night
Step outside
Do or die
Live my life with an alibi that gee oh dee a rider like no other
On this timeline

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

Hot hot hot
A hot July

Hot hot hot
A hot July

Hot hot hot
A hot July

Hot hot hot
A hot July

Burning up the summers in these angel city blocks
Mama heard a couple shots
Was it the Gs pushin rocks
Or the cops bustin glocks
Cause the weather aint the hotness
Swimmin through the sinning like the Angeleno Lock Ness
But aint a fantasy it's as real as it ever was
School aint for the kids so they southside or blood or cuz
Thunderous
Wonder what the future could hold
If everybody knew our souls were worth more than gold come on

Together we can make a change
Together we can work it out
People we're really the same
Inside and out
We really gotta get it together
We really gotta change the weather
We've gotta give peace a try or else it's gonna be a

A hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

En el verano el calle se ponen mas caliente
Asi es como viven en este barrio
Asi es como viven en este barrio

Together we can make a change
Together we can work it out
People we're really the same
Inside and out
We really gotta get it together
We really gotta change the weather
We've gotta give peace a try or else it's gonna be a

A hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July

It's gonna be a hot July
Another hot July
It's gonna be a hot July
A hot July
