Some people don't know what it really means to be hood
They think you're made here just a stuffler, you're up to no good
They think these brothers don't know nothing else but bling and white tees
And they think that all these women can do is somebody's weave

They think these hustlers and gangsters and goons riding by
But be easy with your mouth ?cause you don't know nothin? ?bout
The life that gets lived, the struggles to deal with
It?s hard some days, man, if you feel me then say I'm hood

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Everybody put your hands up and rep the hood
If you wanna you can stand up, I know it feels good
Don't be ashamed of the hood, people change in the hood
Ain't nothin? strange ?bout the hood, it?s in everybody

No matter what you do they'll never see us no different
No matter what we accomplish [Incomprehensible]
We gettin? honors for Grammys, on Billboard chart toppers
Thought that they could stop us but we still got an Oscar

They can give it up because we ain't [Incomprehensible]
It?s a movement, baby, and there ain't no stoppin? that
So I?ma keep doin? me and hope you keep doin? you
We're look out for one another, at the end of the day I'm still hood

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Everybody put your hands up and rep the hood
If you wanna you can stand up, I know it feels good
Don't be ashamed of the hood, people change in the hood
Ain't nothin? strange ?bout the hood, it?s in everybody

I don't matter if you got some hood in your blood
It don't make you any less, represent it like what?
It don't matter, it makes you more real than the rest
People think it?s disrespect, consider it a blessing

?Cause you grew up on another side
Saw the world with a different eye, people don't realize
Learn to appreciate the little things and the joy life brings
Ain't nothin? wrong with bein? hood

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Yes, I'm hood, H O O D
Don't speak on it if you don't know what it means
I was raised in the hood, overcame in the hood
Not ashamed of the hood ?cause the hood is in me

Everybody put your hands up and rep the hood
If you wanna you can stand up, I know it feels good
Don't be ashamed of the hood, people change in the hood
Ain't nothin? strange ?bout the hood, it?s in everybody
