Asal Hustle Lyrics
Verse 1

1993, somewhere in the interiors of Mumbai 70

Born and brought up here, life was rough, real tough, real hard

Life is out here is difficult, there never is ease

Naezy spoke to Dohaz about the story behind Asal Hustle- “I had made one autobiographical song for the short documentary Bombay 70 and I felt there should be a more generalised version of this song so I made Asal Hustle”.

Verse 2

On this piece of land, every moment there’s turmoil in the Ghetto homes

Got difficult to sustain, I was living in the dark

During the early days of my life, I too used to live a useless life

Naezy- “Through Asal Hustle, I wanted to share the story of my life, what difficulties I faced while growing up, how I grew up and fought the odds and saved myself from getting wasted and how I got on the right path using my iPad. When you're in Bombay you got to be bad (wise), he said.

Verse 3

Controlled by worthless people, like within the sharp kite strings

Got involved in fights, I was acquiring a taste

For small time thefts, for unnecessary brawls

Swagger without reason

Verse 4

Wherever you might have been brought up,these streets will stab you

Forget being patient, strengthen your safe deposit box

If you learn and follow the rules, you could be accepted and protected

Naezy questions some people’s personality on this verse. There are some who may think they’re the wisest but the streets spare no one. Rather than getting involved in these problems, he urges the people to follow the codes of the street life and move with caution.

Verse 5

Walk like a duck, junior, with your elbows behind

Want to get stuck in all the chaos? Have a look at the houses here

The one getting on your nerves, give it back, don’t be bullied needlessly

Set an example, don’t let the fire within fizz out, add oil and let it burn

The streets are a crowded place.If you ever feel like walking like a boss, think again. Because you might crash into someone in these jam packed lanes and invite trouble. Instead, walk like a duck with your elbows tucked inside.

The hands slipping away, the glass breaks

Verse 7

This is Bombay city, life is difficult out here

Everyday we struggle and hustle, the timid can’t endure it here

There is a reason why Bombay is the commercial capital of India. The second most populated city (20.7 million) in the country is also the richest city in India. Because of which people from all over the nation come here looking for work opportunities.

Mumbai alone, accounts for 33 percent of India’s total income tax collections.  If you’re ready to struggle and succeed in Mumbai, you can succeed anywhere in the world.

Verse 8

Because everyone out here is hungry

Everything is said to your face

Never fail to hit the target, no we never fail

The shoes might be fake but the guns are for real

Addicts on every corner

Ribs get broken on every corner

Verse 9

Don’t do MDMA, that’s how the slums will get ruined

Every boy mischievous, like my family sent me

To school thinking, the boy will do well and pass

Here we skipped school, turned rivers into swimming pools

Dirt on my uniform, don’t have a lunch box

Naezy spoke about his inspiration for the second last line (skipping school)- “I was in a strict convent school but we had a gully gang there too so we used to bunk the whole day and travel without tickets in the local train”

“60-70 kilometre outside Mumbai there's a place called Khadawli where there's a running river in which we used to dive. And we did this almost every Friday because by Monday, the teachers would forget”, he said.

Verse 11

My father is away, in a foreign nation, he’s working

My mother always on my case, worried

On the Bombay 70 documentary, Naezy’s mother said, “All of a sudden I got a phone call saying that your son is in jail. I was really worried. The relatives kept asking what had happened? I didn’t know if they were beating him up in jail, I was concerned”, she said.

Verse 12

My actions turned me into a falcon, found a new direction

The iPad fought back, on the path of delight, I’m on the right path

WORD- Baaz aaya - Got rid of

Naezy finally decided to give up his old, dangerous ways and started rapping with the help of an iPad. His first stand out track- Aafat released in 2014. He spits a monstrous 60 words in 15 seconds on the first verse- An average of 4 words per second.
