Count every blessin'
While I'm scream'n out up front
(Up front)
Akon
(Akon)
Convict music
(Music)

(Ya)
Realize it ain't the life for me
Always gettin' into trouble, 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm on a whole nother level, left the block
And now I'm smiling countin' money like
(Ya)

Realize it ain't the life for me
I done found another hustle 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm living life a lot better
Still keep a glock
In case the jealous wanna hate tonight

Another day up in the hood
Can't believe these cats still bangin'
(Bangin')
Look at the years we wasted
On the corner block still slangin'
(Slangin')
No matter how much we try to make peace
Gun shots still rangin'
(Rangin')

'Cause to be a hood legend
You die first, then become famous
'Cause I done seen this type of thing before
Just hangin' out by the corner store
Stick up kids wit them guns galore
Layin' there, body down, stretched on the floor

I thought about it, man I'm way too fly
To have a fella robbin' me outside
That's why I keep that thing by my side
And count every blessin' while I'm screamin' out

Realize it ain't the life for me
Always gettin' into trouble, 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm on a whole nother level, left the block
And now I'm smiling countin' money like
(Ya)

Realize it ain't the life for me
I done found another hustle 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm living life a lot better
Still keep a glock
In case the jealous wanna hate tonight

I hate to say it but the people
That surrounding me are way too shady
The only people I can trust
Is my family and my lady

All my dogs got guns
Ready for action
They won't betray me
Your the type to run
Or to hold my tongue
When it gets crazy

See I been through this type of thing before
Even had trouble with the law
On the couch when the smash my door
But they won't find the cash stashed under the floor

I never could understand it
'Cause I was the one to pull the shortest straw
Couldn't live this type of life no more
So I had a part of me screamin' out

Realize it ain't the life for me
Always gettin' into trouble, 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm on a whole nother level, left the block
And now I'm smiling countin' money like
(Ya)

Realize it ain't the life for me
I done found another hustle 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm living life a lot better
Still keep a glock
In case the jealous wanna hate tonight

I'm in blue, wit them BF frames
Walkin' on lean, while mind chain hangs
Drivin' somethin', pronounce mad strange
Never mad cool, 'cause I been through flames
Walk wit a limp, 'cause I been through games

Now she's a ho, 'cause she been through gangs
Beef wit ghats for a small chunk change
I'm rich now, that's more chunk change
The cops know slang

Man get the picture before you buy the frame
Call me heart throb, 'cause I'm so fame
Couldn't come close if you sat in my Range
My scars can prove but I'm passion and pain

Realize it ain't the life for me
Always gettin' into trouble, 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm on a whole nother level, left the block
And now I'm smiling countin' money like
(Ya)

Realize it ain't the life for me
I done found another hustle 'cause, I'm so fly
I'm living life a lot better
Still keep a glock
In case the jealous wanna hate tonight
