by Goodie Mob



Yeah, better believe that slick
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha yeah
I Thought you said you was the G-O-D
sound like another nigga to me, ha ha, yeah
I thought you said you was the G-O-D
sound like another nigga to me, shit
When a nigga do, what a nigga does
and a nigga is what a nigga was
and a nigga done read history but yet his eyes didn't see
the only reason you a nigga is because somebody else wants you to be
when a nigga uneducated, intergrated, sangin' "We shall overcome"
A nigga tryin' to be white is what it seems a nigga has become
and when they call me a nigga to my face
can't do nothin' but walk away
but here it is niggas call other niggas nigga each and every day
dividin' and conquerin'
when they say the lighter shade of black is okay
after the middle class they passin' by
the projects laughin' at where we stay
since then a nigga done got grown, had a little bitty nigga of my own
should've known I couldn't show 'em no better than I was shown
Shit, I still wanna hit the club as fresh as I could be
but really, its all for another nigga to see
you know how a nigga get when he see another nigga outfit
don't want nobody to have what you ain't got
somebody get drunk, get mad, and get shot
that why the property value ain't no good in a nigga neighborhood
a nigga could overstand if he only understood
I'm sick of lyin' I'm sick of glorifyin' dyin'
I'm sick of not tryin', shit I'm sick of being a nigga
destiny sent me to this dread and she said she felt led
to offer me some wisdom from this notebook she read
and it said that right then the black man's downfall
was not know that we were not ever niggas at all, hmm
and she looked deeply into my eyes and said brother don't you know
you complain about being black,
when they mad cause they can't be black no mo'
so many black men out here trying to be niggas
keeping it real to the point that they dyin' to be niggas
when in actuality the fact is you ain't a nigga because you black
you a nigga cause of how you act
but, you don't want me to tell you the truth, so I'm gone lie to you
make it sound fly to you huh, huh,
you don't wanna hear the truth, so I'ma lie to you
make it sound fly to you, shit
The nigga experience
the nigga experience
has been stated, it was created
The nigga experience
