Hold on Be Strong

2PacBuy this song

Hold on
Yeah it's gonna be alright, don't trip baby
It'll get better 

Ay do this Thug style main, Thug style 
When this whole beat drop we just gon' run it to em bet
It's all good, uhh

I never had much, ran with a bad bunch  Little skinny kid sneakin weed in my bag lunch 
And all through Junior High, we was just gettin by
And drivebys robbed my homies of their young lives 
I never did cry, and even though I had
pain in my heart, I was hopeless from the start 
They couldn't tell me nothin, they all tried to help to help me
The marijuana had my mind gone it wasn't healthy 
I travelled places, caught cases, what a ill year
I felt the pain and the rain but I'm still here
 Never did like the police, let the whole world know
Now I gets no peace, cause they chasin me down
And facin me now, what do I do?
 These thangs that a Thug goes through 
And still I rise so keep ya head up, and make ya mind strong 
It's a struggle every day but you gotta hold on

Hold on, be strong, hold on
Be strong, hold on
When it's on it's on

Hold on, be strong, hold on
Be strong, hold on
When it's on it's on

Hold on, be strong, hold on
Be strong, hold on
When it's on it's on

Hold on, be strong, hold on
Be strong, hold on
When it's on it's on

There's, never a good day, cause in my hood they
let they AK's pump strays where the kids play
And every Halloween, check out the murder scene
Can't help but duplicate the violence seen on the screen 
My homies dyin 'fore they get to see they birthdays  These is the worst days, sometimes it hurts to pray
And even God turned his back on the ghetto youth
I know that ain't the truth, sometimes I look for proof 
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto, and if it does
Does it matter if you blood or you cuz
 Remember how it was, the picnics and the parties in the projects  Small time drinkin gettin high with them armies 
Just another knucklehead kid from the gutter 
I'm dealin with the madness, raised by a single mother
I'm tryin to tell you when it's on
You gotta keep your head to the sky and be strong, most of all hold on

Hold on, be strong, hold on
Be strong, hold on
When it's on it's on

Hold on, be strong 
I know them ain't tears comin down your face
When it's on it's on but
Wipe your eyes
Hold on, be strong 
In this world 
When it's on it's on but
Only the strong survive y'know
Hold on, be strong 
Hmm, I know it's hard out there 
When it's on it's on but
 Welfare 
Hold on, be strong 
AIDS, earthquakes  Cause when it's on it's on but
Muggings, carjackings 
Hold on, and be strong 
Yeah we got problems 
'Cause when it's on it's on but
But believe me when I tell you
Hold on, and be strong  Things always get better  Cause when it's on it's on but
God don't like ugly
Hold on, and be strong 
And God don't like no quitters  Cause when it's on it's on but
You know what Billie Holiday said bay-bee
Hold on, and be strong 
God bless the child that can hold his own
'Cause when it's on it's on but
Y'know?
 Hold on, and be strong 
You got to stand strong
 Cause when it's on it's on but
And when these bustas try to knock you out your place 
Hold on, and be strong 
You stand there to they face
 Cause when it's on it's on but
Tell em hold on, and be strong 
Hold on, and be strong 
The game don't stop
'Cause when it's on it's on but
Hmmm
Hold on, and be strong 
This here is black main
 Cause when it's on it's on but
If you don't never leave nothin, learn one thing 
Hold on, and be strong 
It don't stop, til the casket drop
Hold on
Thug, for life feel me?
All my homeboys and my homegirls, stay strong 
When things get bad, especially come the first and the fifteenth 
Stay strong, and stay ballin, hold on
I'll catch y'all at the next life, we in traffic
