This ones for my people locked up
Know we keep you in our prayers
And ain't forgot about you out here
No
Call me whenever you feel
'Cause I know a lot of folks don't keep it real
I know they got their own life but still
When you love someone you let them know
You don't let them go
It's hard enough being alone
Missing your family missing your home
Whether you're right or wrong I'll be by your side
Keeping your hope alive
I know how it feels to cry
So you ain't alone in your struggle for life
To my people 

Hold up, Lets do this right
First blaze one for all my fellas that ain't here with us tonight
Hold up, lets do this right
First blaze one for all my fellas that ain't here with us tonight
Some of them for life 

Your kids doing just fine
The youngest, reminds me of you all the time
He even shoots that ugly jumper from the foul line like you do
And your girl she doin ok
But don't concern yourself with if she will or won't wait
You'll just drive yourself crazy with stuff you can't change
There's better ways to occupy your time
Like opening up your mind
It's a troubling time out here
Your kids need your guidance even from in there
And no matter when or where I won't abandon you
'Cause that ain't what friends do
Still got a lot of love
And I pray to God through my actions you'll know how much 

To all my people who ain't coming home at all
There's many children who could learn from your experience
Have a heart get involved
And for all my people who gonna see the streets one more time
You got another chance at life
Count your blessings everynight

Hold up, Lets do this right
First blaze one for all my fellas that ain't here with us tonight
Hold up, lets do this right
First blaze one for all my fellas that ain't here with us tonight
Some of them for life
