Vince’s eponymous album is appropriately a self-portrait of the world around him. On “SUNDOWN TOWN,” the rapper returns to his stomping grounds of Long Beach, reflecting on the harrowing reality of gangbanging. Kenny Beats morphs smooth, soulful vocals into a warped, psychedelic sample that helps set the tone Vince’s dystopian view of Long Beach. “I don’t fear no man, only Allah got the upper hand/ Lost too many friends, to the down the streets, I can’t pretend,” Vince raps on the record.

[Intro]
Yeah
Yeah, yeah
Pacing around
Moving across the room
Pacing around
Let’s move all across the room

[Verse 1]
Yeah, I can die tonight so today
I’m finna go get paid
I’m the violent type, so don’t play
‘Less you want your grave
We was in the hood, rent was late
Ain’t have section eight
Had a .38 in the eighth, moved on 68th
Then they put us out, we was sleepin’ on my auntie couch (Pacing around)
Then she put us out, stomach growlin’, stealin’ from the Ralph’s (Moving across the room)
If I pull it out, I’ma send a nigga to the clouds (Pacing around)
Watch them bullets bounce (Let’s move all across the room)
Fell in love with guns, I love the sound, yeah

[Chorus]
From the sun up ’til the sun is down, yeah
Tryna run it up, I’m runnin’ wild, yeah
From the sun up ’til the sun is down, yeah
Tryna run it up, I’m runnin’ wild, yeah

[Verse 2]
I don’t fear no man, only Allah got the upper hand
Lost too many friends, to the down the streets, I can’t pretend
That I’ll make amends, I know that the blood gon’ spill again
Hangin’ on them corners, same as hangin’ from a ceiling fan
When I see my fans, I’m too paranoid to shake they hands
Clutchin’ on the blam, don’t know if you foe or if you fam
I don’t got a plan, I’m just out here thuggin’ ’til the end, yeah
Niggas know I’ll never fold or bend (Yeah, free ’03), yeah

[Interlude]
Pacing around
Moving across the room
Pacing around
Let’s move all across the room

[Chorus]
From the sun up ’til the sun is down, yeah (Pacing around)
Tryna run it up, I’m runnin’ wild, yeah (Moving across the room)
From the sun up ’til the sun is down, yeah (Pacing around)
Tryna run it up, I’m runnin’ wild, yeah (Let’s move all across the room)

[Outro]
I am tired, tired, over again
I am tired, tired, over again
Tired, over again
