As a kid, I was known, son of a thug Snub-nosed .38 in the glove, who can relate with us Never had an easy life, shits way out Clips spray out, fools pay out or play out Any scenario, been there, done that Gone where some of y'all niggas, couldn't come back Been through the hottest parts of hell Came back with a hard shell and hard as nails I went through it all, do it all, screw it all Small you recall, the hard times as a juvenile Often misunderstood Some joined the military, others just joined the hood Street corner combat, part of the dark streets Your heart beats pump when my slugs release And there ain't no tellin', don't be the one yellin' These birds are deadly, they can shatter your melon [Chorus: x2] When the street wars jump off, there's only one thing to do Grab your gat and squeeze one off This ain't the life of the soft ones who run off You got one shot to get you a knot At the crossroads, sick of holdin' the badlands Where street wars, kick off quicker than Van Damme Mistakes of mad man, I remember the old ways The old days where fools clapped yo' No quarter, you feel me Life expectancy's just a little bit shorter G's gave the order, you carried 'em out Quick fast, you the last nigga I'm worried about Get that street lead, that was one step over the edge Much closer to death, every step I kept on Learnin' about the dark paths, made a hard left Prayed to God death is swift and painless This life ain't for everyone, stay out my shoes You can't trade your fate, I hate to break the news The young won't respect the fences these days You a marked man if you get caught up in these ways [Chorus: x2]
