Ghetto Gospel

2PacBuy this song

Uh, hit em with a little ghetto gospel 

 Those who wish to follow me
My ghetto gospel
I welcome with my hands 
And the red sun sinks at last
Into the hills of gold
And peace to this young warrior
 Without the sound of guns

If I could recollect before my hood days
I sit and reminisce  Thinking of bliss and the good days
I stop and stare at the younger 
My heart goes to em
They tested with stress that they under 
And nowadays things change 
Everyone's ashamed of the youth cause the truth look, strange 
And for me it's reversed 
We left em a world that's cursed 
And it hurts  Cause any day they'll push the button 
And all come in like Malcolm X or Bobby Hutton died for nothing 
Don't it make you get teary 
The world looks dreary 
When you wipe your eyes see it clearly 
There's no need for you to fear me
If you take your time and hear me
 Maybe you can learn to cheer me
It ain't about black or white cause we human 
I hope we see the light before it's ruined, my ghetto gospel

 Those who wish to follow me
My ghetto gospel
I welcome with my hands 
And the red sun sinks at last
Into the hills of gold
And peace to this young warrior
 Without the sound of guns

Tell me do you see that old lady
Ain't it sad
 Living out of bags
Plus she's glad for the little things she has
And over there there's a lady
 Crack got her crazy  Guess who's giving birth to a baby
I don't trip or let it fade me
From out of the fryin' pan
We jump into another form of slavery 
Even now I get discouraged  Wonder if they take it all back
Will I still keep the courage 
I refuse to be a role model 
I set goals, take control, drink out my own bottles 
I make mistakes but learn from every one
And when it's said and done
I bet this brother be a better one
If I upset you don't stress never forget 
That God isn't finished with me yet
I feel his hand on my brain 
When I write rhymes I go blind and let the Lord do his thing 
But am I less holy
 Cause I chose to puff a blunt and drink a beer with my homies  Before we find world peace
We gotta find peace and end the war in the streets 
My ghetto gospel

 Those who wish to follow me
My ghetto gospel
I welcome with my hands 
And the red sun sinks at last
Into the hills of gold
And peace to this young warrior
 Without the sound of guns

Lord can you hear me speak 
To pay the price of being hellbound
