This is a different type of dedication 
To a guy that was a different kind of inspiration 
Only people that knew him, know what I'm talkin' about 
And at the end of the story, you will say without a doubt 
This wasn't your typical case, of fast livin'
 Anything he was makin', he was givin'
To his moms, pops, his brother and his girl
'Cause they, meant, the most to him in the world  Around Suffolk he wasn't known 
But in Eastern Long Island, he did have a home
 Called L.I., is where he stayed  Where there was no need for D-Con or Raid
He was cool with everybody, he had no enemies 
I'm makin' this record, cause he's a friend of me
'Cause he's a hard workin' kid, I've just stated 
That's why this record, is dedicated 
To my man Rich

Yo yo, this is for you my man
God bless you

Let me tell you what happened in the early 80's
When we wasn't thinkin' about gettin' all the ladies 
Me and Rich was thinkin' about survival of the fittest 
You can ask Keith or Kevin, cause both of them were with us
We'd try to get a job everyplace that it takes 
We was even at the factory they call {?}
 Everywhere we went they said they'd call us back
Or even said they're not hirin' to throw us off track 
But Richie Rich said, forget that stuff 
Even though, times was rough 
We kept searchin', searchin', lookin' and lookin'
It seems everywhere we went, the jobs was tooken  Still Rich didn't give up the faith 
He found a job that wasn't safe
Even though it was dangerous, it wouldn't switch 
That's why this is dedicated to my man Rich

Yo this is to you my man Rich
 Cause you know you go way back, you go way back
Word up, God bless you

The way the story end, is just a tragedy 
I wish upon a star that it didn't have to be
Endin' this way for my man Richard 
'Cause still in my mind, he's still as pictured 
Like, he just had gone yesterday 
For sellin', C-R-A-C-K
His dream be a boxer 
So, he could knock the socks off of
An Ivan Barkley, or even Mike Tyson 
But on the streets, he was sacrificin'
For his family, and his wife
'Cause he struggled, he struggled all his life
He wasn't a straight up, criminal or villain 
Or even tryin' to get, stupid or illin'
Was messed up for takin' somebody's life and shit
That tried so hard, and just wouldn't quit
This is a slow record, with a switch  Because it's dedicated, to my man Rich

To you my man
This is to you, Rich
