Guru (Devanagari गुरु) is a Sanskrit term for "teacher" or "master", especially in Indian religions. The Hindu guru-shishya tradition is the oral tradition or religious doctrine transmitted from teacher to student. In the United States, the meaning of "guru" has been used to cover anyone who acquires followers, especially by exploiting their naiveté, due to the inflationary use of the term in new religious movements. more »

Dedicated to all my peeps who looked out over the years
Knawhat I'm sayin'? This one's for you

For you: dedicated true
I'm doin' this one for you
For you: dedicated true
I'm doin' this one for you

To my moms and my pops: I'm glad you stayed together
I don't know too many people to demonstrate true love better
Nowadays kids don't have anyone
But you were there and determined to make me get plenty done
Yes, to achieve although a lot of times I hurt you
But I'm matured now; I'm showin' you my true virtue
As I deliver to you an oath of never-ending love
Admiration and respect, for there is nothing above
A mother's strength and a father's concern
There was guidance no matter which way I turned
Yo, pops, if I could be half the man you are, I'd be a star
Moms, thanks for pushin' me real far
As I proceed through the tundra and harsh winds
I think, reviewin' what you've instilled within
So I'm takin' time out to let you know
Once a boy, now a man; thanks for helpin' me grow

[Chorus x 2]

Goin' out to my peoples for all the times we've spent
Fifty deep up in the party, gettin' crazy, stupid bent
Around the block, puffin' lye, cruisin' in the car
Whatever we was doin', I won't forget it, Baby Pah
When I had no dough, you were there
You hooked me with some ends to show me that you cared
You stood by me through the ups and downs
While the other fakin' clowns tried to start hangin' around
See, you were always genuine
That's why respect is due, and I got you on my mind
A lot of people might not understand the way we click
We're rollin' thick, hittin' harder than a ton of bricks
With all the drama and the phony personas
I'd rather check my man, so we can share some knowledge
If the streets were college, some emcees would flunk out
Sendin' shouts to my peeps, crazy love no doubt


A true friend, kid, is mad, mad rare
Trustin' others is a risk; a lot of things ain't fair
'Cause where I be at, a lot of strange things happen, Jack
You can know a kid for years, and still, he'll stab you in the back
But that's alright 'cause I'm a good judge of character
And me and my family - we maintain the balance to
Master the challenges of life
Like the chain and the star, we link up to shine mad bright
To all my boys way across the country
Dealin' with the struggle - the good, the bad, and the ugly
Yo, under pressure we're the best
No matter what the circumstance, no matter how much stress
Our force has the power to bring forth change
I'd rather see us succeed than feel shame or go insane
Dedicated to my fam that supported
You shall always, I said always, be applauded

[Chorus x 2]
