Ahm & DeeVee – Least Expected (Lyrics from VH1’s “The Breaks”)

Have you seen the newest episodes of the VH1’s sequel to the movie “The Breaks“? You better do, because the show is absolutely amazing. Hip Hop in the 90’s will take you back to that great time all over again. When I first heard Ahm’s & DeeVee’s song “Least Expected” my mind was blown! I couldn’t found the lyrics anywhere except the first verse in Forbes’s article “Dan Charnas On How ‘The Breaks’ Moved From Page To Screen”, so I wrote the full lyrics of Ahm’s & DeeVee’s “Least Expected”. In reality, the song was written by Phonte and produced by Dj Premier, but actually performed by Ahm and DeeVee in the TV show.

Ahm – Least Expected (Lyrics)

 

Verse 1:
Over land and water
They attackin’ us and lead us like lambs to slaughter
Leave us to hustle for grams and quarters
Selling it back to the fathers and mothers that can’t support us

Make a ni*ga want to cancel his plans for daughters
Or any other family tie that could be cannibalized
By a society that got marching orders
Talking that bootstrap shit while they stomping on ya

I’m in the jungle with the monsters and the minotaurs
In the middle of the battlefield like Pat Benatar
Where if the boys ain’t feeling y’all, you can get applause
From high noon to ten o’clock

No, redirect it, heed the message
Sit back and read the lessons
Stay calm and lead the restless and when the sun go down
Run up on a ni*ga and hit ‘em when they least expect it, Ahm!

 

Verse 2:
I’m surrounded by darkness, surrounded by thoughtless
Ni*gas with no notion conscience
Pissy hallways and little tiny apartments
that fell like they can double as coffins.

Modern day Draculas, vampires that be acting up
Spending life in a maximum security prison
Because when it come time to squeeze
You better have heart or the lack thereof…

Some take time to kneel about it,
Or take a hit not to make a big deal about it.
Close my eyes, still see the blood spillin’ out him
You think it’s really a question as to how the f*ck I feel about him?

But no, redirect it, heed the message
Sit back and read the lessons
Stay calm and lead the restless and when the sun go down
Run up on a ni*ga and hit ‘em when they least expect it, Ahm!
